Escape The Fate - Live For Today Lyrics




Get your feet off the ground
Get the fuck out of town
I need a different scene
I got a b-b-b-break free
It's going down, down, down, down, down

Couldn't find words to say
Everybody's in the way
That's okay, could care less anyway
I've got a reason to live
I've got a reason to love
I've got a reason to kill

I'll never walk away
Forget about yesterday
When all of the hate
Is too much to take
Live for today

Nothing ever stays the same
And I try to mask the pain
Cause it's eating me alive
I've gotta cut the tie
I'm going down, down, down, down, down

I'll never walk away
Forget about yesterday
When all of the hate
Is too much to take
Live for today

Just speak and the world will listen
We're living in double vision
With nowhere left to run
You will find a way to live for today

My life is falling to pieces
You're the only one that's needed
To keep from falling down
From falling down

I'll never walk away
Forget about yesterday
When all of the hate
Is too much to take
Live for today

Just speak and the world will listen
We're living in double vision
With nowhere left to run
You will find a way to live for today

I'll never walk away
Forget about yesterday
When all of the hate
Is too much to take
Live for today

Just speak and the world will listen
We're living in double vision
With nowhere left to run
You will find a way to live for today
I'll never walk away

  19. Jude's Gaming

    I think it's so funny. My nephew is two years old and he dances like crazy to this song 😂. Considering my sisters have met this band like 7087327171 times but 😂😂

  20. Nyarax7

    i love it

  21. bexxxify

    Why does the main riff sound so much alike Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction?

    The Smishy Life

    ya it does idk

  22. Brian Goodwin

    god listens to every music as the band represents him. a new era is here. god bless the Christian metal world

  23. reapcrew 23

    3rd favorite song off the new album

  24. elitist mercenary

    I'm trying to masturbate at school

  25. Caoimhe Rothwell

    'I`ve got a reason to live. I`ve got a reason to love. I`ve got a reason to killllllllll'
    Those lyrics are just me

  26. Josh Mcgowan

    See man, this is exactly why I've found myself listening to so much 90's rock lately. Why is this shit so overproduced? It sounds so saturated and fake. You've got a great singer and a pretty good song here, why kill the mood and energy with this kind've production? Now it just sounds like everything else that's out today and it's boring as hell. Still respect the band, I just hope to see them live someday cause their albums just don't do it for me

  27. TitanAnyMe

    it rocks |-/

  28. scaryboi

    Really digging the style of this album.

  29. JohnJuan Martine

  36. Michell Solis

    Killer instinct vibe right here

  37. Jishe

    Pharaoh 0303

    I've listened to kiss for years and this has never reminded me of kiss

  38. Tryhitme cs

    2 days till i see them FUCK YEA! CANT WAIT

  39. Holly Wilson

    Just listened to this album like around 3 am yesterday so I don't remember much from it, but this is definitely one of my favorites from the album. ETF never disappoints and just keeps getting more amazing. They never get old or boring <3 <3 <3

  40. BlackMageMarc

    I personally love all the album's of Craig mabbitt but personally I think ungrateful and this war is ours are my favorite hate me album still tryna feel the music to it but I'm a huge Craig mabbitt fan with all of the other ETF fans

  41. Jesse Jones

    You went from a solid 10/10 to disgusting

  42. Calling Across The Void Band

    "People don't like this album cuz it's not heavy"
    Well ETF did say it would be their heaviest album yet before they released it.

    Jinx McLastname

    For me it's not that but it's because it's all very similar and simple. I don't hate the album but it's just okay

    Jinx McLastname

    There are a couple songs that stood out and that I enjoy like Just a Memory and Let me Be

    MzBra66

    meh I like it. they moved in a different direction but they're rockin it :

  43. Calling Across The Void Band

    "People don't like this album cuz it's not heavy"
    Well ETF did say it would be their heaviest album yet before they released it.

  44. Brandyn Bilyeu

    1:30 "mustard never tastes the same, and I try to masturbate"
    Good luck unhearing that ;D

  45. Down 24

    and bringing me down

  46. Down 24

    firstone is alive in my list
    then memories

  47. Christina Eckard

    I have been an etf fan for a very long time and honestly I love this album a lot.... this song in particular is amazing

  48. michael345ization

    how can u call this escape the fate, seriously theres only one original member left, max isnt even with em either anymore, its seems tha after ronnie left the band, escape the fate died, the bassist only lasted to like the 3 album, it just does my head in, escape the fate is long gone

  49. All Tatted

    what happens if you cant get rid of the hate...ur me

  50. Mortis Thorne

    This is like... a mixture of Zombie Dance and City of Sin. Brings me back to the self titled days.

    Kostya M.

    Yup. Love that dark and melodic style of self-titled album.

  51. angel romero

    Dying is Your latest fashion 😂😂 Ok no

  52. Fana B

    that awesome start of the song.... epic !!!

  53. Jon Wood

    So is the lead singer for ETF the same singer from My Darkest Days or are the voices just similar. Im asking a genuine question because its been a while since i kept on the bands chemistry

    Justin Baskerville

    no completely different and mdd singer wen t to 3 days grace

    Jon Wood

    Oh okay. Thank you. That song was confusing the fuck out of me haha

    Bryan Castillo

    Bruh! Craig Mambit Is The Singer Of ETF, & Dead Rabbits (Ex Singer Of "Word Alive" , "Bless The Fall") Matt Walst Is The Singer Of My Darkest Days, & Three Days Grace (:

  54. NoMan No

    Since when did ETF become Nickelback?

    MonkeyBusiness 87

    @NoMan No While I do like BU they really aren't that special coming from a musicians stand point and personal opinion. It was boring after a few playthrough's for me. I am still jamming to Hate Me, though.

    It's all about personal taste and ETF have caught my ear. It's cool if you don't like the new ETF, but there is no need for asinine whining.

    It's just unbecoming for anyone.

    Leonardo Napoleoni

    +NoMan No since when monte left the band

    MonkeyBusiness 87

    +Leonardo Napoleoni He left back in 2013 if I remember correctly. He is in a new band called Beyond Unbroken with his brother.

    Leonardo Napoleoni

    +MonkeyBusiness 87 I know I was answering no man

    Kelsie LeCrone

    You're not the only person who hears it.
    Trust me.
    The structure of this song is definitely like Nickelbacks slower songs.

  55. Paul Fitzpatrick

    Kespa cup champ select music

  56. Diddler Dave

    When you see that one know it all going through all the comments trying to correct everyone on their opinions and you wish they were in arms length so you could smack some sense into them. x'D
    Good song though.

  57. jacob edwards

    1:32 I swear he's saying I'm trying to masturbate

    firefox gaming

    masturebane which is destroying yourself through masturebation

    Nahi Dodger

    Just heard it. He said masturebane. I stole the answer from the sucker before me.

    firefox gaming

    asshole

    The Dream Catcher

    firefox gaming mask the pain...

  58. Ace Ryder

    This is my dads favorite song on the whole CD and it's my second favorite. First favorite is just a memory.

    Ace Ryder

    nope no fucks given

    Матвей Р.

    +Miranda Woodruff who cares ?

    Ace Ryder

    @Mathieu R. Obviously you since you fucking commented xD 

    Gloomy Garbage

    +Miranda Woodruff lol ur my life😂

    Braxton Mcalister

    your dad sounds like a cool dude

  59. Daniel Rose

    Well this album was a total let down way to many voice modifiers this go around

  60. Damex

    People don't like this album because it's not heavy, but really it isn't that bad.

    JustCucumberGaming

    ETF have stepped up their game big time with this album, Les Enfants Terribles is a personal favourite.

    ~Lawliet~

    +Damexoxo Well "just a memory" is a little heavy
    I personally agree with JustCucumberGaming, ETF have really upped their game

    MzBra66

    I like this shiz, they created great things, they're movin in a different direction but definitely rocking it :D

    JPMoto Vlogz

    Damexoxo i love this shit

    Calling Across The Void Band

    It, like Ungrateful, sounds like a mature This War Is Ours.

    I think ppl are just disappointed it's not heavy cuz of how this is the first album with Kevin and TJ composing the guitars, both of whom are renown for some insane leads and heavy chugs, respectively.

  61. kimnyl rinasin

    favorite song of the album. . .damn. . .this is so good. . .

    Ichihimefan91

    i know right escape the fate for the win

    Fana B

    +kimnyl rinasin i love that part from 3:42 with that guitar solo and chorus together...that hight tones are incredibles :)

  62. Lola Loomerez Official

    2 people have no taste.

    MonkeyBusiness 87

    +Lola Loomerez Official Not really, they just didn't like it. It's understandable since this is something new from Escape the Fate and most people are afraid of change at first and will come up with any excuse to hate it at first. Or maybe it just isn't their type of music, period. As long as they gave it an open minded chance and didn't expect them to make a watered down version of DIYLF then it's cool. In all reality the change's on this album aren't surprising since it's clearly been building since This War Is Ours.

    Victor Cabrera

    +MonkeyBusiness 87 I like it.

    MonkeyBusiness 87

    @Victor Cabrera Awesome.

    SOFA DO SOMETHING

    Correction 15

    Chany Mabbitt

    +MonkeyBusiness 87 zzzssssseëy7899pollkkkkkjjr211qqq1qqqqq5u

  63. Gilaehn Hayner

    i love escape the fate , Craig mabbit is awesome singer

  64. Maxi Rendaldo

    Too much manual tuning and conpression on the vocals.

    MonkeyBusiness 87

    +Maxi Rendaldo I somewhat agree. Craig's vocals are way too good to be done like this. I like it but his live vocals beat the album vocals most of the time, anyway. I'd like to see them do just a jam type thing whenever the next album comes out. I think them just sitting in a room jamming together and giving it their all would be awesome for an album. Some of the best albums have been done like that and it creates a better feeling for an album in my opinion.

    Maxi Rendaldo

    +MonkeyBusiness 87 No. Just no. Nobody will ever do a "jam" album. Terrible idea.

    Hill Melancholy ah man... This is gonna be one of these "when you hear it once you can't unhear it" moment and for a long time

    Sophia Cristina

    ...Cause it's eating me alive
    I've gotta cut the tie
    I'm going down, down, down, down, down

    Shifra H

    I didn't check the lyrics at least 2 years and could not figure out how this lyric fit it. Don't know why I didn't bother checking sooner...would've saved me a lot of confusion

  67. Satan

    Buying this album for sure

    firchris

    +Carl Llamas This album is golden

    Satan

    @Sir Chris Weber's Channel I'm not buying it...
    because my causin said she is going to be me this for Christmas :-))

    firchris

    Awesome :)

  68. Kmatz

    This song is amazing as is the rest of the album. Best ETF album yet! \m/
