How To Make Art

I said listen up, kid – you got a lot to learn

you got the silver tongue but your words mean dirt

Trust me, kid – life ain’t what you think

So shut your fuckin’ mouth and put down the drink.

 

You’ll love so many girls it’ll get out of hand

But no-one’ll break your heart like your rock ‘n’ roll band

You gotta walk the line, tempt the ire of fate,

You’ll eat so much shit you’ll learn to love the taste

 

CHORUS

So get on your knees and start digging for gems,

Tune up the guitar and start your song again,

Cherish the burden & cherish the scars…

You’re gonna need a little darkness if you wanna make art – hey!

 

So make the most of your dreams before they rot and spoil

Stick to your guns but brace for the recoil

‘Cause trust me, kid – no, you ain’t got time

So shut your fuckin’ mouth and put down the wine

 

CHORUS

 

They wanna see you cry

They wanna know you hurt inside

Show ‘em everything…

Show ‘em everything…

 

Pick up your strings and tell ‘em “Watch me burn”

The only real wounds are the ones we earn

Pick up your strings and tell ‘em “Watch me go”

We all know a train wreck is a hell of a show…

We all know a train wreck is a hell of a show – go!

 

CHORUS
