What you gonna do? Time's caught up with you
Now you wait your turn, you know there's no return
Take your written rules, you join the other fools
Turn to something new, now it's killing you

First it was the bomb, Vietnam napalm
Disillusioning, you push the needle in
From life you escape, reality's that way
Colours in your mind, satisfy in time

Oh you, you know you must be blind
To do something like this,
To take the sleep that you don't know
You're giving Death a kiss
Oh little fool now

Your mind is full of pleasure, your body's looking I'll
To you it's shallow leisure, so drop the acid pill
Don't stop to think now

You're having a good time baby, but that won't last
Your mind's all full of things, you're living too fast
Go out enjoy yourself, don't bottle it in
You need someone to help you stick the needle in, yeah

Now you know the scene, your skin starts turning green
Your eyes no longer see, life's reality

Push the needle in, face death's sickly grin
Holes are in your skin, caused by deadly pin

Head starts spinning round, you fall down to the ground
Feel your body heave, Death's hands starts to weave

It's too late to turn, you don't want to learn
Price of life too high, now you're gonna die!
