Lightning Rod Lyrics - Offspring

Review The Song (3)



I am waiting
On a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike
My apologies
Are forever lost
Soon to ashes in a flash of light

Miles away from me
Hope is fading soon
Gone forever it's a waste of time
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I've saved - why
Is thrown away

I am waning
Like a single bloom
Lost forever in the storm of life
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just show these wounds how to heal
Here I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show

Throw me down

It's been raining
And now I will pay
Woe is come to me

I am the lightning rod

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
Oh above me
He will strike me!

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know
For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show

I started listening to the offspring just before Americana came out. Then there were loads of people saying "ugghhh the older stuff is better" now americana is seen as old people say "uhhh americana was good but now theyre shit" its just the way people are. That said, rise and fall is a weak album imo. Thats just my opinion and personal taste, it doesnt mean that it is worse. A band has to evolve, they cant just repeat the first album, as musicians and individuals, people grow and change. This is an important part of being alive!

Meh, I don't believe some of them | Reviewer: Atari | 2/4/08

I think a lot of the folk saying they don't like the new stuff are only saying to to be 'cool,' because they don't want to accept the fact that they like 'mainstream' music.

Seriously, most of the stuff they have is great! Million Miles Away, Kids Aren't Alright, Staring at the Sun, One Fine Day, All I Want, Spare Me the Details; s'good stuff.

One of my Favs. | Reviewer: jayers | 1/5/08

Such a great song, granted it is off of their newest album (unless u count greatest hits). Some old-school prolly wont enjoy this song but i like both old and new material from the offspring and this song has deep emotional lyrics and a great job vocally by Dexter. Great song one of my favs, and i cant wait for their new album that they have been hinting about on their website.
