Album: V

Your Life is a song from the band's fifth studio album, V.

Background

In an article by Scene for Dummies, the song is discussed:

"[The song] closes V with elegiac keys, jagged riffing, and an 808-boom propelled by edge-of-your-seat raps and an undeniable plea, 'It's your life. It's do or die.' 'We were shitfaced drinking in the rain under an awning on Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood at three in the morning,' recalls J-Dog. 'That's how the chorus came about.' 'It's true,' smiles Johnny 3 Tears. 'I love when ideas come about organically. It's personal, but it's a statement for everyone. It might be cliché to say, but it needs to be repeated: You can't waste your fucking time. It's a self-affirmation. Every moment you waste worrying is a moment you could've been done something that might actually have consequence by the day you die.'"

Lyrics

Johnny 3 Tears: Fuck it, fuck every single memory
How you’re done wrong but who's the real enemy
You better figure out not a single thing is meant to be
The only thing that matters, how you live before you're put to sleep
That's how you're living if you're living just to breathe
I never waste a sentence, better listen when I speak
Or you’re gonna know the truth when they put you underneath
And no one's gonna listen when you're six feet deep
I keep my heart tucked in my chest
I hide it underneath with a bulletproof vest
Who's next? I, no, I never gave a fuck
I was too busy dying, too busy giving up

Yeah, trust me
Funny Man and Johnny 3 Tears: (Trust me!)
Johnny 3 Tears: Just breathe
Funny Man and Johnny 3 Tears: (Just breathe!)
Johnny 3 Tears: One day you're gonna see
Yeah, trust me
Funny Man and Johnny 3 Tears: (Trust me!)
Johnny 3 Tears: Just breathe
Funny Man and Johnny 3 Tears: (Just breathe!)
Johnny 3 Tears: Otherwise you're living on your knees

Danny: This is your life, it's do or die
The sun may never rise again, so be the light, the vision
This is your life, it's slipping by
You try to run but fall again, you get back up, that's living

J-Dog: Every day I feel like I wanna forget
And everywhere I go I see the angel of Death
To the left I see what's right, b-but I hold it in the wrong hand
It's a fight, I see my life given no chance
It's hard to wake up but I wanna believe
That I'm not alone with a broken dream
All the glitter ain't gold, don't be naive
Leave it all behind, just follow me

Yeah, trust me
Funny Man and J-Dog: (Trust me!)
J-Dog: Just breathe
Funny Man and J-Dog: (Just breathe!)
J-Dog: One day you're gonna see
Yeah, trust me
Funny Man and J-Dog: (Trust me!)
J-Dog: Just breathe
Funny Man and J-Dog: (Just breathe!)
J-Dog: Otherwise you're living on your knees

Danny: This is your life, it's do or die
The sun may never rise again, so be the light, the vision
This is your life, it's slipping by
You try to run but fall again, you get back up, that's living

Charlie Scene: Today I finally felt like I wasn't in a dream
This ain't who I am inside or how it's supposed to be
My mind is on an endless road and I've been losing sleep
And as the road is trembling, these demons start to creep
I can't hold back, you couldn't stop me if you tried
You should know that and when the fire burns inside
You can't hold back anything that never dies
You should know that, you can't hold back

Danny: This is your life, it's do or die
The sun may never rise again, so be the light, the vision
This is your life, it's slipping by
You try to run but fall again, you get back up, that's living
