Dropkick Murphys Rebels With A Cause Lyrics

As a point of conversation, he was referencing relation

From the corner he came from, the company he’d keep

She was from the country far from the city

They shared one love, they were destined for defeat

He was tortured, he was troubled

She was sick and she was lost

Searching for an answer, rebels with a cause

Doing what they do to get what they need

Life was cheap, there were no guarantees

Dead end kids you don’t want ’em you don’t need ’em

And you’ll always find a reason when you need to write ’em off

Dead end kids you can take ’em you can leave ’em

You said they’d never listen you said they’d be better off

But we believed in you, we knew it from the start

Hey kid! You’ve got heart

They were wretched, they were raw, they were tough and they were mean

They were scared, they were cold, they were somewhere in between

Looking for a chance from someone who believed

Remember what you see ain’t what always what it seems

So give a kid hand, lift him up and dust him off

Many will stumble, others will be lost

For all who failed so many would succeed

Don’t be angry at the kids, be angry at the greed

Dead end kids you don’t want ’em you don’t need ’em

And you’ll always find a reason when you need to write ’em off

Dead end kids you can take ’em you can leave ’em

You said they’d never listen you said they’d be better off

But we believed in you, we knew it from the start

Hey kid! You’ve got heart

Dead end kids you don’t want ’em you don’t need ’em

Dead end kids and you’ll always write ’em off

Dead end kids you can take ’em you can leave ’em

Dead end kids you said they’d be better off

Dead end kids you don’t want ’em you don’t need ’em

And you’ll always find a reason when you need to write ’em off

Dead end kids you can take ’em you can leave ’em

You said they’d never listen you said they’d be better off

Dead end kids you don’t want ’em you don’t need ’em

And you’ll always find a reason when you need to write ’em off

Dead end kids you can take ’em you can leave ’em

You said they’d never listen you said they’d be better off

But we believed in you, we knew it from the start

Hey kid! You’ve got heart
