Greenday's "21 Guns " Expresses Love for Peace and Democracy

Greenday's new hit single”21 guns” is an alternative rock that expresses love for peace and democracy. The group through music has been criticizing US-led war and anti-terrorism activities as a threat to democracy and freedom. Their song,” wake me up when September ends" is I think the first part of sequel of their anti-war activity public( yet artistic) demonstration .Thus, the second part is the “21 guns “,which is also the theme song of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

21 Guns
by Greenday

Do you know what's worth fighting
for,
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart

inside?
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their

toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of

your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and

home?
Did you stand too close to the

fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness

from a stone

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has

died
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I
