Got no future plans
I've got dirty hands
I've had some bad relationships
And one night stands
But I know it's gonna make me a better man because of it
If there's a God,
Then he knows that I've commited sins
I've played the game
And I don't always win
But, nobody does
Nobody does

Fags, beer and herbal highs
Just an aid to enjoy my life
Gonna live now before I die
'cause we're a long time dead

Using all your time spent
Thinking 'bout what's been said
Looking over past love
Regretting little things you've done
Don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour
Loving everyday 'cause
That's all the time you've got
Don't you know that life's too short
And don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour

In my head there are land mines try'na explode
Atomic bombs that are ready to blow
It's hard to believe that nobody knows
This war I see
No peace talks, no police walk around
Try'na stop shots from knocking me down
The bullets make no sound
So no-one knows this war in me
In me, in me

Fags, beer and herbal highs
Just an aid to enjoy my life
Gonna live now before I die
'cause we're a long time dead

Using all your time spent
Thinking 'bout what's been said
Looking over past love
Regretting little things you've done
Don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour
Loving everyday 'cause
That's all the time you've got
Don't you know that life's too short
And don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour

Do I have to be part of this
Do I have to join in with this
Why should I conform to your reflection
Do I have to take all of this
Well I think it's worth the risk
I'll go the way that I know best
I'll go with my direction

The wisest thing ever said to me:
Life's too short to live a lie
I know, I know I don't know everything
But I know, I know I've got to try
I know I've got to try

Using all your time spent
Thinking 'bout what's been said
Looking over past love
Regretting little things you've done
Don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour
Loving everyday 'cause
That's all the time you've got
Don't you know that life's too short
And don't you know that life's worth
Living for the second, minute, hour

    General CommentI recently fell in love with flamboyant bella.
    hah. They are actually rather.. dreamy.
    all there songs have a sort of make-believe quality about them.
    This song is about living for the moment and just taking chances. and doing things that may be frowned upon to have the most fun possible. and quite rightly so.

    General CommentI hated this song when I first heard it, but I'm learning to love it more and more these days.

    My favorite verse, musically:
    Fags, beer and herbal highs
    Just an aid to enjoy my life
    Gonna live now before I die
    'cause we're a long time dead
