Greenhouse Effect – Five Years lyrics

You and me
'Got nothin' to live for!
' Shoulda' listened to my bros'
... To stay away!

We had five years
Like everyone warned me!
Now I'm the fool
I was destined not to learn from

... What's a matter with you boy?
You don't kick back no more
'Drinkin' with the boys
N laughin'
Now... Yer all alone in a room!

Five Years
Five Years!!

I can't go back to my friends
After sellin' out with her
I can't go back (or home) to mama'
No one loves me;
That's the score!
'She threw a lamp at me!
My addiction; 14 stitches!
She threw punches at me!
My addiction; 'bit off willie!

What's a' matter with you boy
You don't kick back here no more
Drinkin' with the boys n laughin'
You're all alone in a room

Friend, will ya take me in?
A chunk of my life is gone
Friend will ya settle my soul!!
A chunk of God is gone
Friend will ya be my Lord?
My will is completely dead
'Somebody take my hand!!
... But no one answers

That's right...

What's a' matter with you boy

Five years...
Five years...
