Reinventing Axl Rose - Live

We want a band that plays loud and hard every night
And doesn't care how many people are counted at the door
That would travel one million miles and ask for nothing more
Than a plate of food and a place to rest

They'd strike chords that cut like a knife
It means so much more than t-shirts or a ticket stub
They'd stop at nothing short of a massacre
Everyone would leave with the memory that there was no
Place else in the world and this was where they always belonged

We would dance like no one was watching, with one fist in the air
Our arena's just basements and
Bookstores across an underground America
With this fire, we could light
With this fire, we could

Just gimme a scene where the music is free
And the beer is not the life of the party
And there's no need to shit talk or impress
Cause honesty and emotion are not looked down upon

And every promise that's made and bragged
Is meant, if not kept
We'd do it all because we have to, not because we know why
Beyond a gender, race, and class,
We could find what really holds us back

Let's make everybody sing
That they are the beginning and ending of everything
That we all are stronger
Than everything they taught us that we should fear
