English.png English text

Living on the edge for so long always sought the thrill.
That only kills the pain for a little while.
Life of the party, playboy, big man tough as nails, you know.
Hurt inside, a scared and lonely child.
I see my path so clearly now, the journey’s darkest end.
But you can’t erase a permanent mistake.
Won’t somebody help before I throw away this life?
A life that isn’t mine alone to take.
I laughed, I cursed, I spit when I left.
Damned’em all to Hell.
Now I’m the one who hasn’t far to go.
Why in Hell can’t I tell my fam’ly how very sorry I am?
‘Caus I’d rather die than tell them so.
I see my path so clearly now, the journey’s darkest end.
But you can’t erase a permanent mistake.
Someone up there help before I throw away this life.
A life that isn’t mine alone to take.
Whoa, yea!
I see my path so clearly now, the journey’s darkest end.
You can’t erase a permanent mistake.
God in Heaven, help before I throw away this life.
A life that isn’t mine alone to take.
