Even in his youth (x3)
He was nothing
Kept his body clean (x3)
Going nowhere
Daddy was ashamed (x2)
He was something
Digrace the family name (x2)
The family name, he was something

He was born for your crew
I've got nothing left to prove
If I die before I wake
Hope I don't come back asleep

Even in his youth (x3)
He was nothing
Kept his body clean (x3)
Going nowhere
Daddy was ashamed (x2)
He was ashamed, he was nothing

Digrace the family name (x2)
Family name, going nowhere

Leave this one, for your brew
I've got nothing left to prove
If I die before I wake
Hope I don't come back asleep
Aye-Yeah!

Leave this one, for your brew
I've got nothing left to prove
If I die before I wake
Hope I don't come back again
I'm dying!

Even in his youth (x2)
Yeah, yeah
Even in his youth (x2)
Yeah, yeah
Even in his youth
Yeah, yeah
Even in his youth
Yeah, yeah (x5)s

    Wasted youth, failing to live up to the expectations of your family, the futility of chasing dreams and a lot of self hatred "hope i don't come back a sleep".
