Chemical Brothers, The - Battle Scars Lyrics




There's no path to follow
There's no path to follow

There's a line in the sand
Put there by a man
By a man whose children who built the castles made of stone

There's a man in the sky
Giving reasons why
That line grows deeper like these shackles round our bones

Move on to my own
Here come battle scars
It's the final charge
Here come battle scars

There's a child born
To a land of scorn
Sneaks past the borders and the lords that hold his hand

He was led like a lamb
All part of the plan
This castle crumbles as he walks out of this land

Move on to my own
Here come battle scars
It's the final charge
Here come battle scars

This is what we own
Here come battle scars
This is where we are
Here come battle scars

There's no path to follow
There's no path to follow
There's no path to follow

Living for the reasons
of the dead that moved to
paper from their heads
into my fingers
and my deadly view is
strangled by the rent
I have no purpose in this land
have I forgotten how to stand up
with the humor and the need
I've got to find a way to be

I just turn up the stereo
I can't survive without the cold
This culture's fallen off its feet
I've got to find a brand new beat

beat (beat) beat
beat (beat) beat
beat (beat) beat

There's a road ahead
'tween the live and dead
Church bells are ringing like the panic in my head

Step, step, one by one
Walk into the setting sun
Water's rising, rising fast
History catching up at last

Danger ahead, death behind
No one to follow but old man time

Time, time, take us back before the line was drawn
Before the sky turned black.

  1. Jack Pandalord

    The voice's got some Ruth Griffin vibes...

  2. Tom Suit

    One day, I will do a Gunnm AMV with this music.

  3. Daniel Kauwe

    There's no path to follow
    Past the borders
    All part of the plan
    Move on to my own

  4. @2EEZUS

    Yay! iHeart radio. No membership. Forced playlists. God is good.

  5. Aymeric Dal Mas

    Jaws brought us here !!!

  6. Pauldjreadman

    I am slowly going through the Chemical Brother albums. They changed after the first album. I had them on vinyl. Not the same sound although this is the only the song on the album I like.

  7. MarchMelon

    0:16-0:46 Simply amazing.

  8. gleneckert1

    Where is the video I used to watch....best ever ❤️😭

  9. Ian Drinkwater

    The best down album for me ! GOD X

  10. patrick grondines

    love this song

  11. Beesa10

    I like this track and I'm not a religious person but to me it does seem to have a deep, subversive / satanic feel to it.

    [There's no path to follow... Line in the sand (division, conflict)... Man in the sky giving reasons why... like shackles round our bones... Move on to my own, battle scars (self interest / violence)... A child born, led like a lamb, part of a plan... Castle crumbles as he walks out (being forsaken)... This is what we own, battle scars, this is where we are... I have no purpose in this land... No one to follow but old man time... Until the sky turns black...]

    Okaaay.

    jamesmc3stripe

    anti religion and war rather than setanic

  12. patrick grondines

  15. Norberto Prado

    Best CB song ever

  16. tomasi1986

    living for the reasons of the dead,
    that moved to paper from their heads,
    into my fingers and my bed,
    living me strangled by the rent,
    I have no purpose in this land,
    have I forgotten how to stand up,
    with the humor and the need,
    I've got to find a way to be,
    I just turn up the stereo,
    I can't survive without the gold,
    this culture's fallen of it's feet,
    I've got to find a brand new beat.....

  17. Shly Ven

    The lyrics in this song are powerful. Praise to the chemical brothers and their ever expanding musical repertoire.

  18. Silchac

    Canción desconocida de Chemical que escucho es mas temón que el anterior, explíquenme que le pasa al mundo musical que no valora el talento. El 90 % de música electrónica de los últimos años es pura mierda.

  19. Kent Gonzalez

    Still on the path... generation X

    Battle Scars  The Chemical Brothers           There's no path to follow
    There's no path to follow           There's a line in the sand
    Put there by a man
    By a man whose children
    Will built castles made of stone          There's a man in the sky
    Giving reasons why
    That line grows deeper
    Like these shackles round our bones        Move on to my own
    Here come battle scars
    It's the final charge
    Here come battle scars      There's a child born
    To the land of scorn
    Sees past the borders
    And the lords that hold his hand      He was led like a lamb
    All part of the plan
    This castle crumbles
    As he walks out of this land         Move on to my own
    Here come battle scars
    It's the final charge
