Sipping whiskey from a pager cup.
You drown your sorrows till you can't stand up.
Take a look at what you've done to yourself.
Why don't you put the bottle back on the shelf.
Yellow fingered from your cigarettes.
Your hands are shakin' while your body sweats.
You work all night, you sleep all day.
You take your money and throw it all away.
Why don't you look into Jesus,
look into Jesus, look into Jesus,
You know He's got the answer.
H.I.V. on Valentines Day.
And you're still lookin' for the perfect lay.
You think that rock and roll will set you free.
Honey-you'll be deaf before you're 33.
Shooting junk till you're half insane.
A broken needle in your purple vein.
You say you're gonna be a superstar,
but you never really found out who you really are.
Thinking back when you were a child.
Your soul was free and you heart ran wild.
Things have changed, you're older now.
If you're unhappy and you don't know how.
