The Living End – Resist lyrics

I never thought that it would come to this
Yeah I never thought that it would come to this
If the money's on the table
Then there ain't no way anybody's gonna resist

This is no place for the damned
We have sold our father's land
We'll never feel it as long as we don't resist
You can't trust a word they say
Cause they're only gonna send you away
Wherever our fate lies it couldn't be worse than this

I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
I saw the Roman Empire burning to the ground

And not one life was spared
When the bell tolled for the dead
We'll never feel it as long as we don't resist
There is no time for regrets
Soon they'll be ringing the bell again
We'll never feel it as long as we don't resist

Treated like a criminal, an animal
Behind the gates of hell
Treated like a criminal, an animal
Behind the gates of hell
And if you let me go I swear to you that I won't tell

Every night I have the same dream
That I am old and we are free
But there beyond the gate, a better life awaits
Somewhere else

And not one life was spared
When the bell tolled for the dead
Searchin' for salvation, a helping hand becomes a fist
There is no time for regrets
Soon they'll be ringing the bells again
We'll never feel it as long as we don't resist

No one to resist
