Hey guys, I have really been hooked onto last ditch for a while but i can't really get the lyrics and ccbsayit hasn't added them yet.

This recording is pretty good for hearing the words but i was never one for getting much more than a few random words out of a YouTube video of a live show.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRxQVJ_pIeQ

I did get this part

And so i gave them my body
all of the blood
all of the blood i could store
well i don't think i'm cut out for this life
I don't think i'm cut out for this life

I know Will was singing it a bit at one of the other shows so he probably has a bit to add to this.

If you can get any other lyrics out of this just post them and we can compile later.

A few snippets. Outro:

Last ditch chance to start at all
Last ditch chance to start at all
Someday we're gonna make it up to you, I swear
One day I'll have to disappear

The intro of the video you linked:

I can't believe they can't see me
I really shouldn't be here
But I don't think I'm cut out for this life...

Other bits I remember:

And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
And I'll wait for them all day
And I wasn't gonna even if they were facing away // even if they were ten feet away (varies with the chorus)

And just for the record, the fellow singing in Will's video is actually his (pretty awesome, I might add) brother Andrew.

Jacek, I'm pretty sure it's I was never gonna leave if they were facing/ten feet away. Makes more sense/sounds more right.

Sounds to me like it could be either. Maybe it is "leave" in the first one, but I think the second time around it' could very well be "I never meant to even if they were ten feet away." I see it as Pat Crowe saying "I would never have hurt the kid even if his pursuers were right here in front of me," which seems to me to tie in better with what Chad emphasized were the interesting parts of the story for him than "I never meant to leave if they were ten feet away."

I listened a few more times with better headphones and everything and i got a bit more. I'm sure a bunch of it is wrong but it is a start. There is one bit that comes up a bunch of times but i can't figure it out. Here is what i got. feel free ti critique it is nowhere near perfect, i had to fill in what made sense.


…Just waiting to be ignored
But I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
And in a second you’ll run away
And hurry right out the door
And I’ll be roamin’ the street away
As if they know what it’s for
I'm cold and covered in hate
And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
And I’ll wait for them all day
So I gave them my body
All of the blood
All the blood I could store
Yeah but I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
And I’ll be seconds of breath away
And all they know you can feel are
And every second you’re wide awake
And how they know how to steal
I'm cold and covered in hate
And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
And I’ll wait for them all day
But i was never gonna leave even if they were ten feet away
Wouldn’t show them were I was
Wouldn’t even hesitate
Now all that’s left is a breath away
And I'll be sure if there's a will a way, and now we run for the door
I'm cold and covered in hate
And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
And I’ll wait for them all day
And I wasn’t gonna leave even if they were ten feet away
Wouldn’t show them were I was
Wouldn’t even hesitate
Last ditch chance to start it all
Last ditch chance to start it all
Someday we’re gonna make it up to you I swear
One day I’ll have to disappear

This is all according to link i posted. I know the other videos are a bit different lyric wise as most new songs are show to show.

I think the ??????? line is something like:
I'm cold and covered in a day or I'm cold and covered in hay or hate. I don't know just what I hear.

But the second to last ?????? line sounds as if he says: And I'll be sure if there's a will -- a way, and now we run for the door...

Might be something like that.

I edited the post above with the lines you guys were able to hear. I'm cold and covered in hate sounds correct. I can sorta hear the if there is a will there is a way part but there is a lot going on there and its tough to hear anything.

Good ears guys

The first lines are

I can't believe they can't see me
I really shouldn't be here
I don't think I'm cut out for this life
I don't think i'm cut out for this life

the next part changes everytime I hear it so that's all I've got.

I was just watching the version from the interview in Germany and here's what I've come up with

I can't believe they can't see me
I really shouldn't be here
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life

Therein I stood there my body,
therein I stood
All bloody and bowed
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life

When every second's a breathe away
I see you right at the door
and they stand there so righteously
as if they know what I'm in for
but I'm cold and covered in hate

And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
My free life, theirs to take

But the minutes were hours
as I stood looking
at the white washed walls
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life
I don’t think I’m cut out for this life

When every breathe is a second way
I see you right at the door
and they stand there so righteously
as if they know what I'm in for
but I'm cold and covered in hate

And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
My free life, theirs to take

But I was never meant to leave, but they were ten feet away
Unconcerned with where I was
Unconcerned with my fate

Cause every second's a breathe away
I see them right at my door
and they stand there so righteously
as if they know what it's for
but I'm cold and covered in hate

And I'll wait for them all to come at me with their worst
My free life, theirs to take

I never meant to leave, but they were facing away
Unconcerned with where I was
So I make my own escape

Last ditch chance to start it all
Last ditch chance to right it all
Someday we’re gonna make it to you I swear
One day I’ll have to disappear

I just listened to this version again for the first time in years. God damn I forgot how sweet it is. I miss SR
