Lifer - Boring Lyrics




come and take a look at what i've got inside
steppin' up to me will make you question your mind
so step up! step up! and eat a piece of your pride
even the big look kind of small
if you're gonna snooze ya' lose and don't forget it
and if it happens again guess you're never gonna get it
you'll never learn that you'll never knock me over
if you're offended by a freak stop coming to the show.
no name calling everthing will change
what will you do now that everthing is rearranged?
how can you sit there and laugh about the things that i do when i try?
would you try for me?
i'm fed up with everything but me
when i think back to how it used to be
sit there and watch me pretend
you bore me now
you bore me now
(what am i supposed to think?)
boring, somehow you think you're so much better than me
come and take a look at what i've got inside
steppin' up to me will make you question your mind
so step up! step up! and eat a piece of your pride
even the big look kind of small
if you're gonna snooze ya' lose and don't forget it
and if it happens again guess you're never gonna get it
you'll never learn that you'll never knock me over
if you're offended by a freak stop coming to the show.
no name calling everthing will change
what will you do now that everthing is rearranged?
how can you sit there and laugh about the things that i do when i try?
would you try for me?
i'm fed up with everything but me
when i think back to how it used to be
sit there and watch me pretend
you bore me now
you bore me now
(what am i supposed to think?)
boring, somehow you think you're so much better than me
you bore me now
you bore me now
(what am i supposed to think?)
boring, somehow you think you're so much better than me
come and take a look at what i've got inside
steppin' up to me will make you question your mind
so step up! step up! and eat a piece of your pride
even the big look kind of small
no name calling everthing will change
what will you do now that everthing is rearranged?
how can you sit there and laugh about the things that i do when i try?
would you try for me?
i'm fed up with everything but me
when i think back to how it used to be
sit there and watch me pretend
you bore me now
you bore me now
(what am i supposed to think?)
boring, somehow you think you're so much better than me
you bore me now
you bore me now
(what am i supposed to think?)
boring, somehow you think you're so

    The better half of breaking ben

  7. Triple S

    Oh man I loved this band. Seems I still do 2019! Thanks for the take back in time.

  8. Mike Faller

    I think the reason these guys didn't get as far is that they jumped in right around the end of nu-metal and their songs weren't as strong as some of their competitions were. Overall though, I enjoyed this song.

  9. Mello Yellow

    Is anyone going to acknowledge how the DJ is b-rad from Malibu lmfao!!!

  30. Tyrant Moore

    Cant believe you guys are going to be playing in Wilkes Barre again after all these years I finally get to hear you guys live :O

  31. Jason Pegram

    sounds like music wwe would use for pay per views back in the day

    CryptoKnight

    Jason Pegram it was a wwe commercial ad song

  32. TatoCFH

    officialy Punk Is dead

  33. John J

    This has to be the most stereotypical nu metal band ever.

    Simone Albertini

    Lifer are a good nu metal band

  34. Chris

    Yup. This is the shit I listened to when I was 18. This wasn't even good on a nostalgic level.

  35. QEhsyozsqhbj

    Bit of a random observation, but does anyone else think the lead singer looks like a skinny Rikishi?

  36. Channeleven

    I think this is the worst nu metal music video of all time, in a genre which is defined by creative music videos.

  37. Voodoo Opaque

    Sick band, love this Original music

  38. Lee Stanford

    i played a couple gigs with these guys in NY and NJ when they were called Strangers with Candy

  39. gud bie

    Now I know why people hate nu metal

  40. Psychedoutmike

    So thankful Nu Metal made a comeback to the underground metal scene!

  41. Corbin Ybarra

    What kind of shirt does Aaron fink (the singer) have on?!?!

  42. Corbin Ybarra

    Fuck awesome song

  43. M M

    Does anyone know where this video was recorded?

    Daniel Navich

    Tinks, club in Scranton Pennsylvania

  44. Marshall Tucker

    Jesus Christ a bunch of hating bitch mongers on here.... first of all if your 25 or younger shut the fuck up about nu metal you were still eating capon crunch and drinking bug juice so your opinion is irrelevant.... this song is good actually and yeah is does follow the leader but what band didn't at that time ....look at e. town concrete or memento or motogrator ....probly never heard of them of course cause they did the same shit and got nowhere......yeah slipknot and corn and all that are still here cause they generated that style and kept producing these bands get a bad revue from fuck like you baby millinial poppers who don't know shit from a hole in your ass and the give up...give credit where it is do and if you could do better throw you fuckstick band on here ....bet if you got one bad revue you would cry and run off like a dog with a tail between your legs. oh and I help produce mix and master music too so I know good shit when I here it.......

  45. Talio Divino

    This is probably the worst band from the later Nu Metal era, when it became a commercial juggernaut. There's bad Nu Metal bands from the pre-Follow the Leader era, and from pre-2001 (which is when it really blew up into a million bands like this), but these guys take the cake as the worst from its entire life span. Nu Metal is picking up steam again anyway, next year I suspect a new Follow the Leader will come out and we will eventually end up with another Lifer. Nu Metalcore is heavy as fuck right now though, sometimes being heavier than Nu Metal ever was in the first place, so let's hope that this next wave of Nu Metal can avoid making mistakes like this. I mean really, this band was terrible.

    Channeleven

    Nah man, Lifer sucks harder.

    The singer is ass, not bringing anything new to the table even when compared to other underdog nu metal bands.

    The band has that obvious commercial vibe to it, showing through the songs unimaginative lyrics as well as the fact that they came to prominence in 2001, when nu metal was at its peak.

    Not to mention, this is the worst nu metal music video of all time.

    (seems that any band signed to Republic and Universal (and I mean both at once), are only in it for the money (save for Flaw, who're far better).)

    Богдан #

    Channeleven Flaw far better ? Flaw is shit , garbage vocal

    Channeleven

    Egor Nesterenko And? Flaw also has better song structure and diction. What does Lifer have?

    Богдан #

    Channeleven Better song structure ? As for me their songs are typical nu metal cliche

    Богдан #

    I dont think that the Lifer is good , i think that the Flaw is not better . There are many great bands with originally sound

  46. David Charles

    I really miss you guys ,,,you guys were awesome from a guy in hollad Michigan

  47. Aaron Drawbridge

    79 people are boring...

  48. Odd Kensei

    Why did the bassist use BOTH a Thumb NT and a Streamer Stage 2 in the video?

  49. MaD HaTTeR

    Damn... Severely disapointed in "strangers with candy" I just found this shit and that theyre Lifer 👎

  50. Free Skier

    From Tinks, before it became a douchebag Haven.

  51. Toaster Robot

    2:13 am i the only one who thought that that chick was hot?

    aRc

    Black Berserker no.

  52. Dylan Sayers

    The lead singer is trying too hard to look like Chester of Linkin Park

    milekhh

    blah blah... Chester was trying too hard to look like members of Primer 55, Flaw, Snot, Machine Head and hundered others... this look is typical for Nu metal. Chester wanst first with dyed hair, longsleeves, buggy shirts and that kind of stagemoves etc.

  53. Grant Wiley Esq.

    I loved this album so much. Never got why they released this as the single though. Thought there was much stronger tracks.

    Mitsuzane Kureshima

    Grant Wiley Esq. Kinda agree.

    ShootingMach77

    If I remember correctly, they were kinda forced to release this as a single, despite having stronger tracks.

    Zops Show

    If you listen to the full album this song doesn't sound like the rest of the songs that's cos it was what the record company wanted, was a generic Nu metal song as a single (same as deftones with back to school)

  54. PainKilla Max

    people here saying nu metal is garbage and not real metal. These artists did what was popular back than nu metal was just a label. I love nu metal and all these bands but if you haven't noticed metal and rock are dying. yes bands still exist and tour and chart but it's a genre no one pays attention too. Most rap listeners or pop listeners will think all rock sucks or is the same screaming shit. You gotta just accept the genre is dying, as new stuff dosent compare to old stuff, no one covers it, or talks about it, or let alone plays it, and just listen to what's good and leftover

    S.A Masquerade

    You're really wrong about that my friend ha ha.

    PainKilla Max

    Not necessarily

    David Young

    I think you were spot on with that PainKilla.  sad but true.

    Smiley of Humpalot

    i don't know about that. The Nu Metal Revival is indeed a thing nowadays, and more people are starting to pay attention again. Check out bands like Anti-Clone, Frontstreet, Jynx, Sickret, Keychain, Dirty Machine, Kissing Candice, N3RV, Dumbfound, Impact Noize, Inhabit, Hate Grenade, Pulverise, Coldcasket, as well as a slew of others. The fact that sub genres like Nu Metalcore and Nu Djent exist also contribute to the Nu Metal Revival being a thing.

  55. Lando Lanstetter

    I think the drummer won best hair of the year award. Damn I don't even know how he did that.

    Sohib Conner

    wax gel

  56. Nadia

    Damn I miss the numetal aera, it will always be my favourite genre

    WilliamJayG2

    Don't worry a Nu-Metal revival is happening as we speak!!!

    Juan Padilla

    WilliamJayG2 I'm trying to revive nu metal also

    milekhh

    It gonna be done soon i know it :D

    Nadia

    milekhh well I hope so :D

    Primordial Vengeance

    you're very good looking miss

  57. drowninginnothingnes

    numetal is so fucking awesome though most hated gener in metalheads. but numetal is something that like to being hated. as they dont really care.

    Lando Lanstetter

    drowninginnothingnes They had turntables! Fuck elite metal.

    Gannicus

    Lando Lanstetter What is elite metal?

    Lando Lanstetter

    @I Cum Blood No there isn't elite metal, although I guess it does sound like a genre.

    Gannicus

    Lando Lanstetter Then what mean elite metal?

    Lando Lanstetter

    @I Cum Blood Nothing it's nothing

  58. Jordi CS

    fred durst wannabe

    Simone Albertini

    @Jason Hurk You are a fan of Lifer?

  59. Angel Delgado

    Que recuerdos

  60. Static Syndrome

    This is when cheesy = good

  61. Fernando Martins

    nu metal for life!

  62. tgolden12

    The original version from the Strangers With Candy EP was way better. This album was way too overproduced.

    Rob Grier

    wow I completely forgot about them

    TheBreaks FB

    I still have (4) Sealed copies of the OG

    Simone Albertini

    Lifer of Lifer is a good album

  63. Mr. Nerve Damage

    I remember seeing them on Mtv way back in the day when their name was Strangers With Candy... they were doing a cover band contest and they covered "Take On Me", haha... so long ago.

  64. Ashley Devine

    I miss this band. What is the vocalists name?

    Mark Speza

    Nick Coyle. He has had several other projects since lifers break up. But yeah I miss the nu metal era a lot, these were awesome times.

    chucksbrain

    His new band is called Death Valley Dreams .. check them out.

    Leo Luganskiy

    Ashley Devine we also did the song together with him .. "Anthem For a Melancholy " and he also joined COLD for their new record 🤘⚡️

    Cody Poston

    @Leo Luganskiy as the guitarist... But Nick and Aaron did start Lifer back up!

  65. K-CHERO'z TV

    why all nu metal´s bassist are bald?

    Егор Цыба

    Stuart of Lostprophets also not bald

    Wayne A

    @Егор Цыба

    Is that the band from Wales with pedo singer?

    Егор Цыба

    @Wayne A they're now are No Devotion and hate when someone says about the vocalist, since they hate him. Also now Thursday guy is their vocalist.

    Wayne A

    @Егор Цыба

    Regardless, now they are connected by name and its easy to search

    I was in ponty 2 years ago and saw the singers parents

    I'll try to look up the new band

    DerHalbeEuro

    they style looked like a mix of techno and hip hop. short hair, baggy pants, skater style...a whole generation felt more connected to these guys than the "classic metalheads" from the 80s and early 90s with their dark leather clothes, long hair and biker-gang style.

  66. Bragging Rights-Currently Surviving School

    lyrics anyone?

  67. nova lover

    57 OF THE DISLIKES ARE FROM "METAL PURISTS" lol. Numetal all the way. take that quadruple bass, unorganized shit solos, and screaming shit and blow it out your ass.

    followfornothing

    FUCK THE METAL ELITISTS!

    Gannicus

    HOPE THEY DIE VERY PAINFULLY!

    Thunderwaves Studios

    Lonewolf Nazgul fuck u too

    Primordial Vengeance

    Look man I know you're pissed off but let's have an intelligent conversation, Nu Metal was cool because of the Adidas tracksuits and baggy jeans and fitted caps. It was the height of American youth being rebellious and full of attitude

    Henry14arsenal2007

    Out of all genres, you had to bring black metal, literally the "3 tremolo chords and the truth" genre out of them all.

  68. jman jones

    The singer scares me

    AssDust

    +jman “devilwithoutacause” jones ur mom scares me

    jman jones

    +AssDust lol

  69. MediaFreak97

    "I need a piece of your pie"

    Shelby Rowland

    +Poke.Deathtrip "and eat a piece of your pride"

    MediaFreak97

    +Shelby Rowland I liked this song, but now it sounds it little bit too cheesy. :/

    Mesablanka

    +Poke.Deathtrip "SATAN WATCH ME RETURN"

  70. snakehips3131

    Is that Matt Harvey on guitar?

    Luth

    +snakehips3131 No it's Arron Fink. Don't know if I spelled his first name right.

  71. George Dowling

    Didnt know Jamie Kennedy could play turntables

  72. carrie primm

    Hardly anyone does! I was blessed to know it! The whole c.d. is awesome!

  73. Greg Salazar

    - I don't think this song falls into any notable genre. And what a transition for Aaron and Mark when they bailed on Lifer for BB!

    Phil McCool

    +Greg Salazar Nu-metal.

  74. denyfixe1000

    Awsome!!!

  75. RonnieSykes

    3:03 SATAN WATCH ME RETURN!!!

    milekhh

    XD "SEET AND" not "satan" XD

  76. RonnieSykes

    I bet most BJ fans dont even know this band.

    Lando Lanstetter

    I like Lifer because they influenced BBs early sound in Saturate. It was awesome seeing Breaking Benjamin in concert. I never heard the song FireFly but I heard it there for the first time.

    Derk Ender

    @RonnieSykes Ohhhhh lolll

    S.A Masquerade

    Not until now. Wouldn't consider myself a fan. I just like their music. Now excuse me I gotta playlist to fill up.

    Lando Lanstetter

    Lifer was a really good Nu-Metal band. I also liked Adema as well.

    AudioPhocus

    They don't. Nick is the better vocalist. He should have got that break.

  77. followfornothing

    Didn't the vocalist for this band go to Five Pointe O, I know he was in Stardog Champion now with Aaron Fink... talk about history repeating itself.

  78. Grasielle Mohammed

    I like this musical style

    Yukiteru Fujisaki

    Grasielle Mohammed Nu metal is awesome

    Yukiteru Fujisaki

    Cobalt Sulphate And it usually is. The only nu metal done wrong I heard is when Vanilla Ice tried it.

    Yukiteru Fujisaki

    Cobalt Sulphate Twisted Sister aren't nu metal. That's Twisted Method.

    Yukiteru Fujisaki

    Cobalt Sulphate Simon Says was pretty meh, haven't listened to Twisted Method much, but the rest of these bands have some good songs that you can find if you're gonna listen to them more closely.

    Skrape, on the other hand, I just couldn't stand listening to for more than a minute.

    Егор Цыба

    Linkin Park and Lifer are best bands in this style.

  79. Werisson Miranda

    thi is old chool nu metal

  80. Sean D

    AWESOME TUNE. :) 

  81. roach79

    great band!

  82. Christopher Lauterbach

    Never heard of before... but like... good times?....

  83. Underground Vibrations

    It was time of Neo Metal, piercings and hairdressing who defied physics's rules. Of course there was a lots of shit into this scene, but i miss this time.

    Nico RHINO

    it will return , I promise dude !

    Leo Luganskiy

    @Nico RHINO yes, soon enough,,,in a more adavnced and enhanced form ) we only become a better musicians within time ))

  84. Tim Nijs

    Their better in breaking benjamin but i like this too :)

    Jesse Ansorge

    Tim Nijs not sure what's meant by "they're better in breaking Benjamin". From what I remember reading.... one member of this band known as Lifer left the group and ended up being part of breaking Benjamin. That person was Aaron Fink(guitarist). Perhaps I missed something. Did more than Aaron leave to join/form Breaking Benjamin?

    620Guitar

    @Jesse Ansorge correct. The bassist Mark James also left lifer to join BB

  85. Michelle Wright

    I still like this song, I'm 43, from Australia......I'll give it a rating any day.  Sure it sounds like a bit of 2 or 3 other bands but nobody bags out a dog that's a crossbreed....."Oh, how original, you've got a pitbull crossed with a rottie. Why don't you mix a couple of Unknown origin dog gizz samples  and come up with a new breed?"     Love ya work guys, and if you don't.......get a dog up ya!!!!

  86. Rock_spideR

    Ironically, this song bores me

    poetry.of.the.shadows

    That´s nice, now gtfo

    Iron Heart

    Rock_spideR Your personality bores me.

    David Gavronsky

    obviously stuck on New Kids on the Block and knows no better

  87. Jen Featherman Tomlinson Clifford

    Oh funny one of you said funny now I know why they left to form breaking Ben. But yet they made a band together after Ben was being a jerk. Just food for thought. Still love Ben but he knows.

  88. Jen Featherman Tomlinson Clifford

    I love the band. I know the boys. And let me tell you all something they definitely deserve all they got. Sure, some say they shouldn't of won the cover band and others say they got the best band to win. Well I think when people say they got the best band to win they are right. Cause if they never won. We won't have kick ass music from Nick or the rest like we do today. I am very proud of each one of them. And an FYI it's always good to know something about the band. I don't give a shit what anyone says then they were hot amazing and to this day they are. Nick came along way to make what he is today. So did the rest. Without the covet band thing we won't have kick ass music we got today from them.

  90. sean devine

    This and emo. Two almost nonexistent genres. But music I loved. Still do.

    Sean D

    It was kind of implied with the comparison haha. 

    Tom Hydra-XavieR

    Emo Sucks and Is Long Dead, Nu Metal is reviving

    HazyMan

    Emo is not dead at all unfortunately, but Nu Metal really seems to be revived slowly

    Tom Hydra-XavieR

    yeah even Suicide Silence is Nu metal now lol

    Sohib Conner

    emo were never meant to be a genre,most emo bands are metalcore or deathcore
    but nu metal is a metal genre and it has it specifics

  91. zippyt93

    Now i get why they left to form breaking benjamin haha they suck

  92. Rodrigo Jeronimo

    I have inside I feel the youth to the stars

  93. Matthew Houglum

    I love the faces they make, it's hilarious.

  94. EZHarry's Revolving Door

    I don't need to know a band's history to know that this song is a pile of shit, Alex. And seriously? Citing them winning an MTV contest? Winning a music contest on MTV is like being the smartest person with down syndrome.

  95. Eric Covert

    you are, you really are

  96. MykeCheck95

    This is the first time I've ever heard of Lifer and ever checked them out. Honestly, they seemed pretty good. It's a shame they didn't get noticed by critics. :/ They could have gone somewhere in their musical career. And, the lawsuit with Breaking Benjamin wouldn't have happened.
