lyrics

You CHASE THE DRAGON but you can’t keep up with it
It’s out of reach even if you jump for it
You’ve got a lot of friends
Fair weather friends
You spend your whole time chasing after it
Until you see that your life’s turned into SHIT
You wasted all your time
All your PRECIOUS TIME

I’ll see you after the war
I heard they AMPUTED your SOUL
Your SHELLSHOCKED bones say it all
You woke up late in the day
And found your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY

You grew up DREAMING of CELEBRITY
You wound up WORKING in a FACTORY
It didn’t go to plan
So what’s your BLOODY plan?
To drown yourself in a pool of self pity
As wide and vast as the oceans and the sea
It’ll claim your soul
Claim your WRETCHED SOUL

But if you LIVE THROUGH THE WAR
I hope you find that you can grow
A little seed placed in your soul
You’ve got to see through them all
To stop your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY

Instrumental

But if you LIVE THROUGH THE WAR
I hope you find that you can grow
A little seed placed in your soul
You’ve got to see through it all
To stop your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY
