2nd Verse

They dedicate their lives to running all of his.
He tries to pleas them all, this bitter man he is.
Throughout his life the same, he's battled constantly.
This fight he cannot win. A tired man they see no longer cares.
The old man prepares to die regretfully.
That old man he is me.

Kristian Klock -1998
