Flobots - Occupyearth Lyrics




Been a long time
You were born one day you were gonna die
Oh...
When ya' clocked in, can't remember what you've forgotten
So...
Let me tell you how it is here
To exist here living on this sphere
Hey...
There was something called emotion
And sensation
And they feel this way
You can build and play
You can lie and scheme
And while your children say
Pretty much anything
Others will arise,
Colors will become cold
And they call this time
And it makes you old
It accelerates slowly, then faster
Then before you know
There is someone to look after
Share laughter
And of course you grow
Be aware you can hurt them
They can hurt you
It can make you scream
And understand you're a person
Give birth to new ways to dream

And it's not just you
We are all about
And we feel it too
And we're called a crowd
And we have the tools
So we sing aloud
And we stand up
And we all fall down

Ahh la da da la da da ba da
Ahh la da da la da da le la da da da da
Ahh la da da la da da - la ba da da da
Ahh la da da la da da ba da

The road is done
We had our fun
And so it ends much like it begun
With a gun shot brightness
Noise I'm frightened I'm fighting
Then the silence hits
I collect recollections
And echoed reflections of moments of loyalty
And defection and measure my essence
A servant or despot, storm or a tempest
Word or a sentence, was I heard or never mentioned
And did I hurt whenever men shunned me
Or another in an instance ruling by inches
A student of illness to see where the real went
Grown the strength to deal with the feeling of new skin
Just as the noose was loosened I let go and saw the two ends
Felt the weight lift of these heavy feet and realized I could have been anything

The road is done
We had our fun
And so it ends much like it begun
The road is done
We had our fun
And so it ends much like it begun
And it's not just you
We are all about
And we feel it too
And we're called a crowd
And we have the tools
So we sing aloud
And we stand up
And we all fall down

Fall-ah da da la da da ba da
Ahh la da da la da da le la da da da da
Ahh la da da la da da - ba da da da
Ahh la da da la da da - ba da
Ahh la da da la da da la da
Ahh la da da la da da la la la la
Ahh la da da la da da - ba da da da
Ahh la da da la da da ba da

  2. AnythingButYou

    This song makes me feel overwhelmingly sad and I don't know why.

  3. L1V1NGL3G4CY

    I think i heard this in a vid game or movie, especially the first lines. Cant remember what it was... Maybe it was just sounding similar to this. Would be glad if anyone knew :))

  5. Andrew Davis

    How in the fuck did this album slip under my radar, I've been waiting for a new album since survival story.

  6. Rory Petke

    Lie and scheme not cry and scream.

    Only 1/4 of the wrong lyrics?

  9. Rudradutt Ranade

    i love flobots <3

  10. -T S-

    FloBots are band! Even If I've only heard about 4 songs, that's enough to give a hint!

  11. TubeSteak279

    It's definitely more chill than past albums, and still pretty tight. I like it. Occupy Everything!!!

  12. Jesse Green

    i hate that guy, always ruining my battlefield 3, when im on a 15 streak

  13. Brad Duffy

    what a coincidence, that's the name of the band that wrote this song

  14. Blakkyurem

    It's actually Satan and EA's CEO.

  15. chrismanmk

    I like this, it's kinda chill :D

  16. Kurto McBurto

    2 dislikes must be super satan

  17. Pixair Iz

    The lyrics are cut off in the description :/

  18. Zatstach

    It's been tried before. The message always gets twisted. . . but I wish you the best of luck.

  19. Jacob Heffner

    new favorite song by them.

  20. vampireprince5006

    The first three lines, they give me chills i cant describe how this song makes me feel, it litterally makes me confront my own mortality which is a good thing but for me it always scares me

  21. Daryll Wade

    best one yet

  22. Gavin Gallagher

    Wake up people!

  23. RCSJ11

    1 dislike?! Damn you Satan......

  24. D.J. Griffin

    I know what you mean, I have been waiting for a new album but just figured I would somehow know about it when it came. I was looking for an old favorite and found THIS!

  25. Beyonce Knowles

    Wavy song

  26. David

    Do you mean Johnny 5?

  27. 383Lordzazen

    Thank you flobots, you are the future of music, and you are an inspiration to the youth in this country, keep up the good work
    peace

  28. retzdani

    they didn't do this one under a label, so it wasn't as advertised I imagine.

  29. iluveskiimo

    just being a kid i understand this stuff

  30. Bow xDropHayabusa

    thanks !

  31. xGingerChildx

    They are the role models of the modern day rebellion

  32. xGingerChildx

    I wonder if people understand what the song title is referring to. OCCUPY!!

  33. Johna Boynton

    it does!!

  34. madviolentchicken

    You've only got half the lyrics in the description :P Absolutely great song and album however :)

  35. Nero Kennedy

    @Clark Kent Yeah. Not only that, but they kinda have this feel to them... Like in interviews, they give this vibe that's like, "Yes, I'm human." Whereas some others give off that, "I'm totally significant, I CAN'T be human!" Vibe. God... They're so much better for society.

  36. Matt Amato

    American Military University Ad on a Flobots song.... Irony

    Aidan-Thomas McRae

    I feel like their more against the war, then the soldiers mate. Im a fan of their music and love every aspect of it yet im serving. Cheers my friend!

  37. Nero Kennedy

    @Ihat etwitter I think most of the money goes to either Flobots.org or new instrumental equipment. Not towards themselves.

  38. 15Holladay

    Jesse Walker is so awesome!

  39. 15Holladay

    Why aren't these guys more famous than they are!

  40. 556constantinos

    SIMPLY AMAZING

  41. intlMind

  44. scilentlyloud

    man you must of not been occupying earth

  45. devon roberson

    ZERO dislikes. faith in humanity has been restored

  46. sketchE N7

    welcome back flobots this is what i missed

  47. Hee443

    I found this and immediately ordered the album.

  48. Ihat etwitter

    I agree but, they do get enough money to keep going, Its whether they want to use it for their music, the only reason they "dont get enough" is because they want money for things they want not need. Sorry but they are as greedy as every other person on this planet.

  49. Johna Boynton

    WTF no one told me there was a new album!

  50. Kleinermann413

    Nothing against listening to music on youtube but its really sad that because of this a lot of people wont buy the album. and guys really: such great small bands need the financial support!

  51. niceguy122

    Great song from the album

  52. ashley clerville

    I like them all.

  53. Cloudsheep93

    Probably my favorite
