I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said
Don't concern yourselves and just
Gimme another blast
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone, oh
I grew up, went into rehab

You know the doctors never did me no good
They said son you're gonna be a new man
I said thank you very much and
Can I borrow fifty bucks?
Yeah, yeah. yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere

I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you ****in' around I said
Oh my God and here we go again,
Yeah, yeah. yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more, no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere

Follow me down
