Billy Talent - Burn The Evidence Lyrics




In a garage, beside a house, there is a luxury Sedan
And for his next monthly installment,
He's gonna go out with a bang!
Boy who always did what he was told,
Was promised to be king when he was old

Hit the brakes, hit the glass,
Time to shake the hands of fate
The mistakes of the past,
Flashed before his face

There is a man, intensive care
When he awakes he will declare,
"I've been dead for 20 years!
I won't let 20 more go by..."
Boy who always did what he was told,
Bought the only dream that he was sold

Hit the brakes, Hit the glass,
Time to shake the hands of fate
The mistakes of the past,
Flashed before his face

Burn the evidence... of my existence,
Clear the ashes on the ground
Burn the evidence... of all these things,
That pull my spirit down

Ever feel like you've been cheated,
Following what they believe?
Don't shake the hands of fate,
Don't shake the hands of fate,
There's no more time to waste!

Burn the evidence... of my existence,
Clear the ashes on the ground
Burn the evidence... of all these things,
That pull my spirit down

Burn the evidence!
Don't shake the hands of fate,
There's no more time to waste!

  6. Chris Keegan

    Of all the years I’ve played guitar I’ve discovered that, to play billy talents songs in the correct key in the correct tuning (usually drop d) is a lot harder then you’d expect

    The guitarist in this band is ridiculously good and unique

    Dieses Alpaka

    Isn't it always Drop D except when its drop Db which is basically the same ?

    Chris Keegan

    Dieses Alpaka I’m not to sure mate but a lot of there stuff sounds drop d. Db is even lower and would throw the whole guitar out of tune unless you compensate by tuning the rest of the strings a half step down too

    Dieses Alpaka

    @Chris Keegan Yeah of course tune down the other strings. They do have some drop Db stuff, like white sparrows for example.

    Chris Keegan

    Dieses Alpaka cool I didn’t know that mate thank you, great song white sparrows

  7. Arcanis

    Still LOVE Billy talent whole songs from 15 years !! No band can get this rank to my heart !

  8. TGVSW

    Saw them live in Canada, one of the best show ever

  9. Always with the roo

    Blurry And Such

    Documents?

  12. Pintor The Pintor

    This is a shitty, shitty rip of some great music. Sounds so bad.

    Blurry And Such

    Portable Slave

    Ripped off of what?

  13. Emil Herrmann

    whyyyyyyyyyy didn't they play that song when they played in Frankfurt 2016???????? i love that song

  14. oldlux

    this album raised me. Its just so well composed. And I didn't realize this as a kid, but its also incredibly well produced too. The opening guitar on this track is so fucking clean. Billy Talent for life my plebs

    Nick Kohlmann

    oldlux Me too, hadn't heard it for 8 years now..

  16. RanDieBam

    One of the first songs I learned on bass. c: I think about with nostalgia.

  17. René Coty

    I've never listening to rock music before but this music is dope

    James Shore

    +Captain Pain_QC Yes because condescension is the best way to share this awsome band, fuck off mate

    Captain Pain_QC

    what the hell are you talking about haha

    Nick Kohlmann

    Captain Pain_QC Your misbehavior

    Dude Crusty

    Better late than never, there's more dude ;)

    Luca Tarantino

    Same man im a Hip-Hop fanatic but you gotta love billy talent

  18. Colin Bason

    one of the most underrated bands of all time. certainly in my top 10 bands maybe even top 5

    Serotonia

    @Grimmjow J. All generations followed socially constructed norms. Not once has there been a generation consisting of mainly deviants lol. All progress is made slowly. Billy Talent is punk, so they intentionally avoid musical norms. It's a granted that they aren't as popular as pop music.

    David Dewar

    @sekite2 there was tho lmao. Google bought youtube is 2006. It was the wild West, you missed out kiddo

    sekite2

    @David Dewar you disgust me

    Ludvig McRotten

    Billy Talent is an underrated band? You kidding right?

    FearOf TheMraK

    Top 5 indeed.

  19. Samuel Mao

    Damn, this song brings back so many memories. Starting listening to this when I was 12, how things have changed since then :/

    OhMyCarnage

    Samuel Mao didn't even understand it, now I can and I can relate to it..

    Paul Kempa

    i know this song from even before i was born

  20. T Dog

    I know the band is from Canada, but I've never encountered anyone who knew who they were (I'm from California) are they more popular in Canada?

    Jay Sharma

    I saw them perform in BC where I live and I have loved them ever since

    akoi 2499

    T Dog im canadian and i knows and love them

    Rizzy Jay

    first two were classics though

    Nicolas Parent

    I'm from Quebec and almost everybody knows and love them here. Some don't because of Ben Kowalewicz's voice (which I personally find extraordinary and unique). But I've seen them twice in my hometown (which is also where Kowalewicz was born, according to him) and I always had a hell of a time in the crowd at their show. I've rarely seen this combination of visceral and raging energy with thoroughly and precise instrumental composing (System of a Down can be similar in this, but it's a different energy). Theses guys are unique. Gets in my guts, my heart, and my head. Hail Billy Talent.

    Apollo

    how do you figure? It is supposed to be funny when he screams like that

    love toy

    Its a lot of feelings for me in those screams, it brings out a much higher level of meaning to the song itself

    Blurry And Such

    I love his high pitched screaming. Without it, it's not billy

  32. Cobalt
