Mistakes & Glories Lyrics

by POD

Handicap yourself by choice
And keep the mind confined
To the chair with no voice, so speak up
(Move your lips too slow)

And make way to the center stage
And pretty up that face, 'cause your servants await
(It's time to play your role)
So sing and dance just the way we like it

Sweep the leg
If you don't stand for something
Sweep the leg
Then you don't stand for nothing
Sweep the leg
You must suffer the repercussions
Sweep the leg

A coward dies a thousand times
Death before dishonor, cross the thin red line
So stay alive
(No other place to go)

Silence the facts, delusions are corroded
Clench the fist in truth and shove it down your throats
(Don't act like you don't know)
I'm on the wrong path walking the tight rope

Sweep the leg
If you don't stand for something
Sweep the leg
Then you don't stand for nothing
Sweep the leg
You must suffer the repercussions
Sweep the leg

Mistakes and glories
They're in the ground but they were cut down
Mistakes and glories
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied

Mistakes and glories
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes and glories
Giving all you can give when you're dying to live

You work for us, you work for us
You work for us, you work for us
You work for us, you work for us
You work for us, you work for us

Sweep the leg
If you don't stand for something
Sweep the leg
Then you don't stand for nothing
Sweep the leg
Gotta suffer the repercussions
Sweep the leg

Mistakes and glories
They're in the ground but they were cut down
Mistakes and glories
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied

Mistakes and glories
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes and glories
Giving all you can give when you're dying to live

Mistakes and glories
They're in the ground but they were cut down
Mistakes and glories
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied

Mistakes and glories
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes and glories
Giving all you can give when you're dying to live
