Die To Live

Album: Rewind, Replay, Rebound (2019)
  • It's 7:02, breaking all the rules
    Dance the boogie-woogie and let's fire up the booze
    'Cause we die to live, we die to live
    We know about the law, but that won't get us far
    When the rattlesnake is shaking and the gun is on the floor
    'Cause we die to live, we die to live

    We can go all night 'til the morning light
    And the mayor will be there too
    Call the cops who got all the drugs
    And then send them home by noon
    Let it burn, let it burn
    Oh, well, let it burn, let it burn

    Rebellious attitude, your mama's got it too
    We can't do nothing right when wrong is what we do
    'Cause we die to live, we die to live
    We ain't got the time for a Christian lullaby
    When off goes the alarm and the house is going down
    We die to live, we die to live

    We can go all night 'til the morning light
    And the mayor will be there too
    Call the cops who got all the drugs
    And then send them home by noon
    Let it burn, let it burn
    Oh, well, let it burn, let it burn

    Let it burn
    Oh, let it burn, let it burn
    Let it burn
    Oh, let it burn, let it burn
    Ohh

    It's 7:02, breaking all the rules
    Dance the boogie-woogie and let's fire up the booze
    'Cause we die to live, we die to live
    We know about the law, but that won't get us far
    When the rattlesnake is shaking and the gun is on the floor
    We die to live

    We can go all night 'til the morning light
    And the mayor will be there too
    Call the cops who got all the drugs
    And then send them home by noon
    Let it burn, let it burn
    Oh, well, let it burn, let it burn

    Let it burn
    Oh, let it burn, let it burn
    Let it burn
    Oh, let it burn, let it burn Writer/s: Michael Poulsen, Rob Caggiano

  • Stranger from The OutsideDoes Volbeat's "Die to live" remind anyone else of something Meatloaf would play
  • Douglas H Johnson from Tallahassee Florida UsaI saw where they described this album as "spiritual sarcasm". But I can't figure out if that's what is going on in this song or not.
