The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

Back when I was just 17
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
To be a rising star that only gleamed
When all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me

I was legal now at 21
I knew the way the world should run
My God, just look what I had done
Simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends but I found none
All alone at 21

The fire burns on
And **and all that drives me on***
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

At 25 I was suprised
That I was even half alive
Somehow I managed to survive
I found my bodys' doing time
In my back a hundred knives
All from my friends at 25

And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life if you would sell
**A year or two** if less compelled
So live your life and live it well
There's not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell

The fire burns on
And ***and all that drives me on***
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And ***and all that drives me on***
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And ***and all that drives me on***
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men
