Rubber headed motor junky,
Run me down and try to stomp me.
Throw my life away and I'll be worthless just like you.
Somewhere now a baby's crying,
Down the road his mother's dying
Shot a line and blew her mind and now she's turnin' blue.

Don't you throw your life away
Just wait untill another day.
Don't you throw your life away
Cause baby I can feel it.
Don't you ever comprimise it.
Don't you even realise it?
Don't you throw your life away cause baby I can feel it now.

Trip and fall,
I'm sure you all can tell me
What is on the wall
Behind the liquor store where you get smacked up all the time.
Perfect ilttle life you wasted, overdosed and that death you tasted.
Scared you back into yourself, and now you walk the line

Don't you throw your life away
Just wait until another day
Don't you throw your life away cause baby I can feel it.
Don't you ever comprimise it
Don't you even realise it
Don't you throw your life away cause baby I can feel it now.

Life away
Life away
Life away

    That screams drug addict that OD'd and is now a good person. or it might be about an alcoholic that got really close to dying from alcohol poisoning. either way its the same.

    I'm pretty sure that this song should basically be on the soundtrack for Trainspotting. I think it means that some guy was doing heroine and he almost died, so he quit and is now a good person.
    Actually this song isn't half bad. 3 Doors Down kicks so much ass!
