Outlived a wasted life
Too soon to say goodbye
One plot to call your own
Now it's our turn to cry

I've been through this before
These things are hard to take
Was it too much to live for
Once choice you felt you had to make

And I've pissed my time away
Through countless life long wasted days
Why are all the simple things so lost in sorrow
And my perspective so unclear

Life's cold and thick with lies
Seen through the blue black eyes
We squander as we smile
Things which once appeared worthwhile

How views on life distort
When we see a life cut short
No cause to calculate
Absentia renders no debate

Through pain I've grown to learn
Just as long as life still burns
Won't sit around and wait
Until I burn down heavens gates I know
