Motörhead ( /ˈmoʊtərhɛd/) are an English heavy metal band formed in 1975 by bassist, singer and songwriter Ian Fraser Kilmister, professionally known by his stage name Lemmy, who has remained the sole constant member. The band are often considered a precursor to or one of the earliest members of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, which re-energised heavy metal in the late 1970s and early 1980s. To date, Motörhead have released twenty studio albums, seven live recordings, five compilation albums and five EPs.

Go ahead put the blame on me, 
Another reason to disagree,
Deaf to all the truth for sure, 
Hear the hammer knocking at your door.
But you know it's all fairy tales, 
A heavy heart like a bag of nails,

Stand up! Show your face, 
Another victim of the cold embrace.
Before too long, 
No more singers, no more songs.

Oh no, last call, 
You had a chance, you lost it all.
Got some, bad news, 
Never learned to dance, 
Born to lose.

Telling lies just makes it worse, 
Another loved one, blind and cursed,
Don't speak the truth, only lies, 
All we need is a reason why.
But then you always miss the point, 
Your perfect time is out of joint.

Stand Up! Bite your tongue, 
Hell coming and it won't be long.
Your wasted life, 
Cut to ribbons with a thousand knives

Right now, right here, 
Lose your mind, but show no fear.
Burn slow, no excuse, so unkind, 
Born to lose.

Be still, turn your back, 
You can't survive, and that's a fact,
I know you can't believe it's true, 
The evil years catching up to you.
Now your face, is awful pale, 
Never thought you were gonna fail.

Stand up! We cut you down, 
The worm awaits you in this barren ground.
Your last goodbye, 
Sweet justice for your wasted life.

Right now, no doubt, 
In a world of pain, no way out.
Be still, can't refuse, 
In a world of shame, 
Born to lose.
No remorse, can't cope, 
No getaway, up in smoke. 
Fade out, we accuse, time to pay, 
Born to lose. 
Born to lose.
