Rock And Roll Deserves To Die

Album: Easter Is Cancelled (2019)
  • Dressed up in the emperor's old clothes
    And they're pulling at a thread
    Naked with your empty heart exposed
    You will wish that you were dead
    You fooled us all
    More buck less bang
    When the verdict is returned
    You will surely hang

    Rock and roll your time has finally come
    I am afraid you must die
    Rock and roll your time has finally come
    Now I'm afraid you must die

    Rock and roll deserves to die
    Rock and roll deserves to die

    All of us have built a house of cards
    In the eye of a storm
    Charlatans all tattoos and no scars
    Nothing real to perform
    You will lose your head
    When judgement is passed
    Tied your colours
    To a sinking galleon's mast

    Rock and roll your time has finally come
    I am afraid you must die
    Rock and roll your time has finally come
    Now I'm afraid you must die

    Deserves to die
    Rock and roll deserves to die
    Deserves to die
    Rock and roll deserves to die Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
