lyrics

Live longer, die bored,
and cowards die older than all of us
Sleep longer, and wake up older,
and bored men dream about excitement

And something bad happens then

Full of hope began the war,
but I ended up in feathers and tar
I would spend my life forever,
if I knew it would be better

I've been adrift in a sea of rage
Been pushed aside by by-the-ways
I would spend my life forever,
if I knew it would be better

I misused my head, misused my bones,
but I did not misuse my heroes
Friends I betrayed, liars I obeyed,
but they told me I was doing the right thing

And something bad happens then

Full of hope began the war,
but I ended up in feathers and tar
I would spend my life forever,
if I knew it would be better

I've been adrift in a sea of rage
Been pushed aside by by-the-ways
I would spend my life forever,
if I knew it would be better
