You're Gonna Go Far, Kid Lyrics - Offspring

Review The Song (39)



Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line
A mob jumps to their feet

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

sponsored links
With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Slowly out of line
And drifting closer in your sights
So play it out I'm wide awake
It's a scene about me
There's something in your way
And now someone is gonna pay
And if you can't get what you want
Well it's all because of me

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you'll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid
Trust, deceived!

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Now dance, fucker, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

So dance, fucker, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Clever alibi
Lord of the flies
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

people should proof read their comments before they post them | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/13/14

Whether the lyrics are wrong or not, what really bothers me are the comments. Anybody who posts comments or leaves behind criticism without any form of correction is wasting, not only time, but also wasting space.

P.S. If you're going to post a comment check your God Damn spelling & grammar, oh you should also check and make sure you are using the right words. Just because THERE and THEIR sound the same doesn't mean they are the same.

nice song | Reviewer: tgf ty | 11/25/13

this song is good and all but why the argueing( sorry for any bad spelling) it doesnt mater as long as you enjoy the song and you can figure out the lyrics but if you disagree with everything put in your own words for example i miss heard: breathing in the chemicals. for, breathing in a cup of coals. and i still hear cup of coals instead of chemicals for the song radioactive by imaginedragons. no matter what i listen to it all but i do find most of the lyrics to songs on my own though so do what i do figure them out on my own. it helps trust me even if it does tick you off also i thought this song said dance your dance after listening more closely it says dance fucker dance so that part is right. but who am i to judge.

Your gonna go far Jennifer...... | Reviewer: J.R. | 11/21/13

a girlfriend, no, my fiancé fits the song. Everything she did was calculated, planned, she was such a manipulator.... Dance fucker dance.... she had everyone around her 'dancing' me included.... she kept her parents separated from her friends, me separated from her parents, her friends separated from me... round robin style.... playing all of us. She would drop a comment and 'get back in line' and watch the crowd go wild as she sat back and enjoyed the show... I watched, enjoyed, till I was the one 'dancing'. It was like being on an out of control roller coaster... the best I could hope for was to jump off during a slow curve.

With a thousand lies and a good disguise... she was blonde, young, stunning body... what a disguise for the cunning evil person inside, set on total destruction of anyone that crossed her... I was soon that 'anyone'..... hell to pay


What the song is about | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/23/13

I saw a question as to what the song was about, so I figured i'd respond. The song is based on William Goldings "lord of the flies". The singer is supposed to be The Lord of the flies, or Beelzebub, talking to the boys and trying to convince them to do evil.

Cool as | Reviewer: Rainbow dash123 | 3/31/13

thank for this song its so cool i like so much about it like who sings it and how fast it is i think that this one is better then the slow one its crap!!! so yh thanks for putting this up it helped me very much =)

relax | Reviewer: reyasem | 11/6/12

keep calm and enjoy the song. Seriously guys,i'm not good in english,so i never care about the lyric,especially if i really enjoy the song... If someone made a mistake in the lyric,so what? It didn't make the song any less cool. Just correct it,or if you're too lazy,then just shut up.

nice | Reviewer: byron | 1/11/12

lookguys and gals I am a profesional artist that was failing in school i caught a sound of this song on the radio and i felt the need to do better when i was 14 i wasnt able to find inspiration to draw when i listened to the song i found that inspiration and now i am making money off my art i never thought it would happen but it did so all you that think the liriks are wrong can choke on my d**k to shut you the f**k up already if you all think they are totally fucked up then look at yo mamma so you can see what is realy fucked up for now i love the song and always will peace to all band lovers byron out!!!!

Amazing | Reviewer: Mizuki Okazaki | 7/2/11

I love this song. This is officially my yearly song. Its so inspirational. It really does boost up confidence and I love listening to chorus especially. The part where it says clever alibi Lord of flies my sisters were wondering what it was I was like it mean devil but it refers to the devil within us all and that part made me get the feeling to get ready to beat the crap out of someone. And whoever said these lyrics are wrong is wrong themself. But great song overrall I love the meaning too!

OMFG! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/5/11

no title | Reviewer: jake brauch | 2/14/11

ok so ive read alot of yalls comments on here and i gotta tell you what ive seen is just down right well pathetic. especailly the one tell someone to grow the fuck up i belive it was. so what if the lyrics were wrong and the corrected. so what if someone noticed the error and said something about it. your just as wrong telling them to "grow the fuck up" or calling the a "whiny kid".whats the point even correcting them, do you honestly think there gona bother listening to the words of some complete stranger, someone the will never meet. yes offspring is a great band and it is one of the only rock bands i listen to besides classic rock. hell im a down to the root country boy and always will be but i still like offspring.now im not preachin at anyone im not saying your bad people or a bunch of kids or anything like that at all, im just puting my opinion in about cyber bullying. whats the piont of it it doesnt make you seem tuff to anyone.and why do it on here. and anyone can go far in life lisa. thank you all have a nice day. if you wish to contact me my emial is jakkin92@embarqmail.com.

Quick question | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/11

What is this song about? Any ideas? Like I get what its saying, but what is the context. Like what are they really singing about. Great song and great band.

Honestly this band should be a household name, as much as the rolling stones, or (God forbid) nickleback. This is really quality music with quality lyrics. Couldnt ask for more

MY FAVORITE!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/19/10

I think maybe the people who said the lyrics were wrong...were right, then the website edited it, and then you guys saw it, then hated on the others, because now the lyrics are right...but they might not have been when they saw them.

The Lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/4/10

Seriously, everyone,

The lyrics here are the PROPER LYRICS, unless you're used to the radio-edit. If you are, MAN UP AND LISTEN TO THE REAL SONG. Anyway, if you don't believe me, youtube this song (because the f'n Jango doesn't work) and listen to the song while looking at these lyrics. They're the same. Anyway, love the song. And, if you think the lyrics are wrong, tell the site, NOT US. Great song, great lyrics and I hope these guys stay with their sound. Good work guys, from Canada.
