If I could have my wasted days back
Would I use them to get back on track?
Stop to warm at karma's burning
Or look ahead, but keep on turning?

Do I have the strength
To know how I'll go?
Can I find it inside
To deal with what I shouldn't know?

Could I have my wasted days back
Would I use them to get back on track?

You live it or lie it! You live it or lie it!
(You live it or lie it! ) (You live it or lie it! )

My lifestyle determines my deathstyle. My lifestyle determines my deathstyle.

Keep searching, keep on searching
This search goes on, this search goes on
Keep searching, keep on searching
This search goes on, this search goes on

I've worn out always being afraid
An endless stream of fear that I've made
Treading water full of worry
This frantic tick tick talk of hurry

Do I have the strength
To know how I'll go?
Can I find it inside
To deal with what I shouldn't know

Worn out always being afraid
An endless stream of fear that I've made

You live it or lie it! You live it or lie it!
(You live it or lie it! ) (You live it or lie it! )

My lifestyle determines my deathstyle.
My lifestyle determines my deathstyle.

Keep searching, keep on searching
This search goes on, this search goes on
Keep searching, yeah, keep on searching
This search goes on, on and on

Ohhh
My lifestyle (Birth is pain)
Determines my deathstyle (Life is pain)
A rising tide (Death is pain)
That pushes to the other side (It's all the same)
My lifestyle (Birth is pain)

    whoever says St. Anger is poor is talking out of their mind. or atleast don't have a sense of enjoying this kind of metal/rock album. I thoroughly enjoyed those songs. Of course, there are "better" albums .

    I think thats its the best song off of their worst CD. None of the songs are great. The whole CD is onthe bottom of my list of favorite Metallioca songs.

    Good song. Lyrics are off. I sent corrected ones. Best off of St. Anger. Its a good CD. Metallicas worst by far. I still like all the songs though. I like every one of their songs.
