Transcript of 21 Guns - Green Day

21 Guns. 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.

d Music During the verses of "21 Guns" the music is softly played in the background, when the chorus comes the music gets more intense. The music that plays with the chorus is very powerful and it gets the main point of the song out to the listeners, "Give up the fight". The soft music that plays with the verses is reasonable because they are trying to get you to focus on the lyrics and not the music playing. Explain Message The message in "21 Guns" is about war and how we should stop fighting. The song also talks about war and how people fight in everyday life when they really should just forgive each other and move on. of
21 Guns We think that the song successfully conveyed its message because the way the words are placed in the lyrics makes the listeners really think about war and how many people risked their lives. In the song they are saying the pride in which we fight is misplaced and to end war all we have to do is throw down our guns and make peace instead of war. Lyrics 21 Guns GIVE UP
THE FIGHT
