"What Do You Do" as written by and Jerry Horton Jacoby Shaddix....
I got a one-way ticket on a hell-bound train
With nothing to lose and nothing to gain
Nobody ever taught me how to live
I'm feeling like I'm lost, like I'll never be found
I'm twisted and I'm turned around
Nobody ever taught me how to love

I'm hurting everybody
I'm hurting myself
I'm desperate

So what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?
So what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?

If you were to tell me that I'd die today
This is what I'd have to say
I never really had the time to live
And if you were to give me just another chance
Another life, another dance
All I really want to do is love

I'm hurting everybody
I'm hurting myself
I'm desperate

But what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?
So what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?

When all is said and done
You could be the one
With open arms and open eyes
You're jumping off the edge
I'm hoping you can fly
Accept your fate for what it is
Into the Great Unknown
Yeah!!

So what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?
So what do you do
When it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?

So what do you do
When it's all turned around on you?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?
So what do you do?
What do you do?
What do you do?
Do you run and hide
Or face the truth?

Got a one-way ticket on a hell-bound train
With nothing to lose and nothing to gain

    General CommentBeautiful song. I love it....it's pretty much about a guy who has obviously had it rough, and all he wants is to love and know how to live and be happy, but nothing is just working out for him, so he kind of wants to run away or something.
    just my insight.

    General CommentWOW! how can someone says it SUCKS!! IT"S GREATTT!!!!! well I think that is about a person who fight with himself for say all that he wanted but he doesn't know how to do it. I can relate it with alexithymia, the inability to describe feelings. I'm one of them and it's just how I feel everyday, just like this song.
