Metal Skool – 18 And Life lyrics

Feat. P!nk

Ricky was a young boy, He had a heart of stone.
Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone.
Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town.
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down. Oh no!
He had no money, oh, no good at home.
He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone
And now it's...

18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go
18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

Tequila in his heartbeat, His veins burned gasoline.
It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean.
(They say he loved adventure), "Ricky's the wild one."
He married trouble and had a courtship with a gun.
Bang Bang Shoot 'em up, the party never ends.
You can't think of dying when the bottle's your best friend
And now it's...

18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go
18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

"Accidents will happen" they all heard Ricky say,
He fired his six-shot to the wind and
That Child blew a Child-away.*

18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go
18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

    Actually, this song is about Joseph 'Ricky' Beasly. When he was 18 he robbed a grocery store with some of his friends. And when they were getting away, his friend shot and killed an innocent bystander. Then they got caught. And because he was with them and helped rob it the judge sentenced him to life. And while he was in jail he started to get religious, so his cell mates shanked him one day. Sad story.
