Life is taking you anywhere
Love on your mind
Heroin in your veins

You live your life like Rock ’n’ Roll
Excess is all that you extol

You are young and you are strong
You fuck the next best that comes along
You sell your soul for anything
Now hear all the stupid children sing:

Live fast and die young
We will never be wrong
Live fast and die young
Sweet youth, this is your song

You are proud and you are strong
You fuck the next best that comes along
You sell your soul for anything
Now hear my stupid children sing:

Live fast and die young
We will never be wrong
Live fast and die young
Sweet youth, this is your song

    General CommentNine thanks again for posting the lyrics!
    All songs are awesome but this is the only one I have a sure idea of what's it about - it's about youth nowadays and lyrics pretty much tells it all. Chorus line "Live fast and die young" is a cliche and it is used to show that wrong way of thinking...
