A brush with disease like a common cold
it’s really a bitch to grow old
In country that borrows lies
and feeds to those without a lifeline.

There’s no way to keep from being abused
When it hits too hard to heal from you
don’t wanna die without taking a chance
To be more than an obedient human.

Don’t throw your life away 4x

Mark of the beast from a needle hole
Swallow pills to normalize
Deaf are the words from the ones you trust
Running at will to cross the line

Fetch like a dog that follows a tail
Stepping down hard on a rusty nail
Armed with the guilt of being weak
I’m ready to get up off my knees.

Don’t throw your life away 4x

I’m not ready 2x... yet
