Well he shot four men
In a cocaine deal
And he left them
Lyin' in an open field
Full of old cars
With bullet holes
In the mirrors.
He tried to do his best
But he could not.

Please take my advice,
Please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Well, it wasn't
Supposed to go
Down that way.
But they burned his brother,
You know,
And they left him lying
In the driveway.
They let him down with nothin'.
He tried to do his best
But he could not.

Please take my advice,
Please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Well tell me more,
Tell me more,
Tell me more
I mean was he a heavy doper
Or was he just a loser?
He was a friend of yours.
What do you mean,
He had bullet holes
In his mirrors?
He tried to do his best
But he could not.

Please take my advice,
Please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.

Please take my advice,
Please take my advice
Please take my advice.
Open up the tired eyes,
Open up the tired eyes.
