"Deathwish" as written by and Mark Jeremy Seymour....
I once had a reason
I once had a water tight excuse
For tasting the poison
For turning the thirsty creature loose
Out of my senses
I let the piper call the tune
Dumb and defenceless
Lost in the endless afternoon

Once ran on nerves of steel
Injured by cheap regret
Deathwish I used to feel
Weakness I can't forget

In love with the wasteland
In love with the girl I could not find
In love with the craving
I loved everything I left behind

But I got what I came for
I did the deal and I did the time
The life that was wasted
I couldn't see that it was mine

Once ran on nerves of steel
Injured by cheap regret
Deathwish I used to feel
Weakness I can't forget

Twisted on every deal, I played too hard to get
Was my Achilles heel, bad blood I had to let
Death wish won't soon forget
Bad blood I had to let

There's no escaping
The desperate days we're going through
Out of the darkness
Nothing can touch that part of you that

Once ran on nerves of steel
Injured by cheap regret
Deathwish I used to feel
Weakness I can't forget

Twisted on every deal, I played too hard to get
Was my Achilles heel, bad blood I had to let
