When you're dying - giving up hope
Living for smoking dope
Singin' that same old song
Yeah yeah yeah it's always the same
I got no - nothing in mind
I was trying a new adventure
Buyin' that old peer pressure
Wasting my mind away but I saved it just in time
No reason I was going mad
I was hating my mom and dad
Riding a sinking ship
Thank god I never did slip
Time wasted by JWLKQLA@oak.grove.iup.edu
