Verse 1
Verse riff start
Back when I was just 17
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
Verse riff start
To be a rising star that only gleamed
When all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me
Verse riff start
I was legal now at 21
I knew the way the world should run
My God, just look what I had done
Verse riff start
Simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends but I found none
All alone at 21

Verse 2
Verse riff start
At 25 I was suprised
That I was even half alive
somehow I managed to survive
Verse riff start
I found my body's doing time
In my back a hundred knives
All from my friends at 25
Verse riff start
And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life if you would sell
and you would too if less compelled
Verse riff start
So live your life and live it well
There's not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell
