The American Life – That's Life lyrics

"HEY! HEY!"
Try living just a little bit
"HEY! HEY!"
And sing just for the hell of it

Just pull your heart up off the ground
Yelling out three cheers
We're sounding silence to warn everyone around
And now we're running from the life we know
Making the sacrifice
We stand above a prize that can't evade us now

Listening to broken sounds
That our past has left spread across the ground
Waking up to everyday
With this feeling chasing me

Get up! Get up!
And shake your fists now
Step up! Step up!
And sing it so loud
Get up! Get up!
And scream your lungs out
All of the time we've pieced this all together

So take a step into the crowd
Letting your guard down now
These walls are breaking up and falling to the ground
Dare to whisper out a word of doubt
Take in a deep breath now
Forget that time is lost, and sign up for the night

Tearing down the broken seams
Of a past that's been hanging over me
Waking up to everyday
With this feeling chasing me

Get up! Get up!
And shake your fists now
Step up! Step up!
And sing it so loud
Get up! Get up!
And scream your lungs out
All of the time we've pieced this all together

Get up! Get up!
And shake your fists now
Step up! Step up!
And sing it so loud
Get up! Get up!
And scream your lungs out
All of the time we've pieced this all together

All of the time we've spent
All of the time we've pieced this all together
All of the time we've spent, we've spent
And I know that it's you that's watching
All of the time we've spent
All of the time we've pieced this all together
All of the time we've spent, we've spent
And I know that it's you that's watching
And I hope that it's you that's watching

"HEY! HEY!"
Try living just a little bit
"HEY! HEY!"
And sing just for the hell of it

Get up! Get up!
And shake your fists now
Step up! Step up!
And sing it so loud
Get up! Get up!
And scream your lungs out
All of the time we've pieced this all together

Get up! Get up!
And shake your fists now
Step up! Step up!
And sing it so loud
Get up! Get up!
And scream your lungs out
All of the time we've pieced this all together

"HEY! HEY!"
Try living just a little bit
"HEY! HEY!"
And sing just for the hell of it

"HEY! HEY!"
Try living just a little bit
"HEY! HEY!"
And sing just for the hell of it
