Life > Death Lyrics

by The Cult

You break the man
Leave his shell on the ground
What have you done
With your own life, your world

Shared everything I've been
Speak everything I've seen
So kill your jealousy
And what you believe

You can't destroy them
The beauty and the youth
You'll never beat them
You'll never hide the truth
[x2]

I lay down
With the beasts on the ground
Where prophets cry
In every tear a prayer, forever

Shared everything I've been
Speak everything I've seen
So kill your jealousy
And what you still believe

You can't destroy them
The beauty and the youth
You'll never beat them
You'll never hide the truth

Destroy, destroy, destroy it all
What I don't understand
Why you destroy everything
So beautiful in your hand

Hate strips it away
The essence of a man
We'll weave a golden noose
And hang you from the stars

Hey now
You can make it right
Hey now
The lightning and the fight
Hey now
The power and the glory
And hey now
Hey now
You can make it right
