Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in... again
The need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That whole defense

RIP Taylor Hawkins. Crushing, devastating news. There will be no one like you. Terrible loss for Foo Fighters, Rock n Roll, all the fans and above all his family. Thank you for all these incredible drum fills, rhythm and energy you gave us over the years.

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all began
Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in again
They need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That old defense
Spinning infinity, boy
The wheel is spinning me
It's never-ending, never-ending
Same old story
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I never surrender?
In time, or so I'm told,
I'm just another soul for sale, oh well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
I'm the voice inside your head you refuse to hear
I'm the face that you have to face mirrorin' your stare
I'm what's left; I'm what's right; I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that'll take you down and bring you to your knees
So, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I'll never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
So, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
I’ve never been a HUGE fan of Foo Fighters, but I’ve always enjoyed their music. Been listening to them more again lately after Taylor’s passing.
Rest In Peace Taylor. Much love, prayers and thoughts to his friends, family and the band family.
Grew up with the Foos and always loved Taylor Hawkins as a drummer, singer, overall musician and as a person. Can't imagine what the Foos, their fans and family are going through right now. He added so much to the band. His groove, his energy, his backing vocals, his chemistry with Dave. Always gave 100% every show. Rest in peace Taylor Hawkins. You touched the hearts of and inspired so many people. Sad to see him go way too soon

Lamentamos su perdida, un gran baterista
My mother who passed away 11 years ago (I'm now 19) Loved Foo Fighters. She struggled with drugs and alcohol. But she was a beautiful woman. I couldn't have wish for a better mother. This was her favourite Foo Fighters song. Brings back memories. The good ones. Rest in peace Taylor Hawkings, my mother would've been devastated.

While everybody might be giving their condolences I want to give my thank you to the band for all the years that they have shown their music talent and I want to thank the family of Taylor Hawkins for keeping that man in a safe and healthy environment or as long as we all could and thank you so much to Dave for putting in so much effort into the Foo Fighters since day one. It is never goodbye because I will always come back
Foo Fighters will never be the same without Taylor. He'll be deeply missed. Rest in Peace! 🏴

Started learning this song on drums the other day. Taylor has been such a huge and recent inspiration to me. His realness and talent was so inspiring. His passion and love for music was infectious, I could watch countless interviews from him, and I have. I have no words about how I feel right now. I will give this song my best performance, for you Taylor. Rest in piece.
Easily one of the greatest rock songs of all time
Descanse em paz taylor, lenda da batera, nunca será esquecido, amamos você!
I think we all grew up with these legends, there will be more to discover them and their sonic landscapes, they're all truly amazing and wonderful people. We may heal but we will never ever forget the impact they have on us. R.I.P Taylor Hawkins you were truly a legend on the drums and will live on for eternity as the back bone for a legendary band

Vir escutar essa musica mais uma vez e sentir essa energia dessa batera é foda. RIP descanse em paz, você foi foda pra caralho

John Cabrera:
Parce yo tenía 11 años cuando esté himno salió en MTV. No sabía mucho de rock, a duras penas Molotov, los prisioneros, Juanes (lol) y ver ese vídeo TNA agresivo, ese redoblante asesino, la brutalidad de los riffs... Muchos millennials conocimos la historia de Nirvana por estos locos... Que en paz descanse.

Never would have gotten into Foo fighters without two things Dave Grohls outstanding voice and the one of a kind drummer Taylot Hawking. To me without him the foo fighters would have been very different RIP to one of best drummers in history

This song is art, and it should be cherished by newer generations too

My favorite Foo Fighters song where Taylor drums.
Had tickets to see them in December in NZ and absolutely gutted to hear the news not just because the concert is canceled but because my favourite band in the world has lost an absolute angel of a drummer and friend, thoughts and prayers are with the band ❤️ much love
RIP Taylor Hawkins, incredible loss and gone way too young
One of my favorite songs all time. Thx of being part of it. RIP Taylor Hawkins.

Taylor was such a great, fun guy and will be missed by many. Love to his family and the band. rest in peace dude
Federico Grande
Federico Grande:
La primera vez que escuché Foo fighters fué con esta canción. Y me gustó instantaneamente por una sola razón, la pegada de la bateria. Es increible la sensacion violencia que transfiere y como la explayan en el video. La percusión perfecta de una batalla, una resistencia. Que grán perdida la de Taylor. Ojalá no muera la banda, porque sonaban fantastico al estar todo en su lugar inamovible. Pero parece ser otro de esos casos en que la presencia de un músico es tan imponente que su ausencia mata al conjunto. Dale que hay que salir adelante.

I’m a 13 year old drummer, and no doubt wouldn’t be without Taylor. His energy, enthusiasm and pure talent will be viewed by me and so many others as one of the most heartbreaking losses in rock history. Sending best wishes to his family and friends, and hope they recover with time. RIP Taylor😢

Newman Becker:
Man listening to this after Taylor's passing, you realize how much the drums just drive this song. It's amazing, just Dave's voice and those drums would be a hell of a song even without the amazing guitar
This song is the definition of Kick-ass Rock.
Rest in Peace, Taylor Hawkings

No puedo creer que haya estado tan cerca de escucharlos en vivo y que no haya sucedido :( Te extraño, Taylor. Me preparé con todas las canciones de FF para el Asunciónico, escuché mil veces esta canción, y hoy, una semana después de que hayan cancelado el concierto, sigo en shock de lo que pasó.

Garrett Crespo:
Taylor Hawkins work was inspiring and is one of the reasons I drum the way I do. The Foo Fighters music has gotten me through some of the harder times in life and sitting down behind my kit to try and play Taylor Hawkins drum beats literally helped me become a better drummer. Rock music has lost one of its greatest drummers. RIP Taylor. Thanks for all the years of amazing music!

What a tune! What a message! Right - left: both are wrong! Be who you are and never surrender yourself to anyone. Live like you're dying, because you are. Love like you mean it because you do. Be real and be true.

I hope for more music like this from the Foo Fighters, and I hope Taylor Hawkins can finally be at peace.

Todos estos tipos son geniales juntos.
Dave Grohl has honestly had such an amazing career from being Nirvana's drummer to the lead guitarist and vocalist of the Foo Fighters to the drummer of Queens of the Stone Age and even being part of the legendary Tenacious D as their drummer as well.

He's really had a hell of a run and still isn't done. Really gotta give him props, he did something right in the world.

Eu descobri essa banda de rock ontem, mas foi por causa somente da MTV que estava passando esse clipe.
“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”
