I've been gone a long time
Here in the walls where sun don't shine
Time waits for no one
Paid the cost
Paid the fine
They say I'm free now and my life is mine
But all that's good is gone
Ooooooooo
Mum was drunk
Pop was blinde
Did not factor to much into the time
But what she did was not
I was lost
Turned to crime
Then out of the madness some guy.....?
But what he had was mine
Ooooooooo
