"Running Out Of Time" as written by Matthew Gray Nelson and Jack Ponti....
Johnny played the rebel - huntin' for a cause
Sh-sh-sh-short fuse fused dynamite hungry for a spark - ooh yeah
His 9 mil. Loaded with borrowed time
Bad boy swore he couldn't die
'Till he faced a man a little bit quicker on the draw

He tried to steal his destiny
He bragged of immortality
Now he ain't that tough six feet deep

Short rides on the glory train
Through dead end streets of no escape
Lyin' in the bed you made on a ship
That came in too late
You're running out of time
You're running out of time

Jenny came home from the ritzy side of town
D - drove her mommy's Benz -
Lived in Daddy's great big house - ooh yeah
She hawked her gold to feed the spike
A great escape on the pony ride
'Cuz Mom and Dad wouldn't let their little baby out

When China White`s your lyin' friend
You've sold you soul when the party ends
And you're dancing blind on the razor`s edge

You and me are victims of our blood
Haunted by the ghosts of who we loved
Our parents sing that same old song
"Where the Hell did we go wrong?"
Just take a look in the mirror Mom and Dad!

Don't look back it burns your eyes
You can't win if you don't try
Only you control your life

Don't you know you're runnin' out of time?
Wake up! Wake up! God dammit wake up!
You're running out of time
You're running out of time
You're running out of time time time
