  • Be still
    And go on to bed
    Nobody knows what lies ahead
    And life is short
    To say the least
    We're in the belly of the beast

    Be still
    Wild and young
    Long may your innocence reign
    Like shells on the shore
    And may your limits be unknown
    And may your efforts be your own
    If you ever feel you can't take it anymore

    Don't break character
    You've got a lot of heart
    Is this real or just a dream?
    Rise up like the sun
    Labor till the work is done

    Be still
    One day you'll leave
    Fearlessness on your sleeve
    When you've come back, tell me what did you see
    What did you see (what did you see)
    Was there something out there for me?

    Be still
    Close your eyes
    Soon enough you'll be on your own
    Steady and straight
    And if they drag you through the mud
    It doesn't change what's in your blood
    (Over chains, over chains, over ?, over ?)
    When they knock you down

    Don't break character
    You've got a lot of heart
    Is this real or just a dream?
    Be still
    Be still
    Be still
    Be still

    Over rock and chain
    Over sunset plain
    Over trap and snare
    When you're in too deep
    In your wildest dream
    In your made up scheme
    When they knock you down
    When they knock you down

    Don't break character
    You've got so much heart
    Is this real or just a dream?
    Oh Rise up like the sun
    And labor till the work is
    Rise up like the sun
    Labor till the work is doneWriter/s: Brandon Flowers, Daniel Roland Lanois, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer, Ronnie Jr. Vannucci
