We have a lot of good times brother
I've known you all my life
Mixing blood and drugs and women
In your journey to the endless night

I've watched you kill what she's been given
You sold your vision for a glimpse of Heaven

Once she were a thief of fire
Now you're just a junkie liar
What you gonna cop
When the bomb drops?

There's been a million people brother
Just like you before
