Hey turn around man I'm gonna take you downtown
You wanna grab the sack go ahead and do it
My fear and doubt is set in place by a lie
I glorify you that's the only way of life yeah

I take the shake and slowly surely dissipating
Yeah the the wrinkles on my face
They will were from my old age
I try to understand you throwing men away
All your talent down the drain
And it just makes perfect sense

When I look you in the eyes it takes me right back
Yeah your future helps me move on from my dark past
Don't give in,
It's not real,
You're dead by choice,
Choose to feel

Your words insane that old me if I was left brained
I could understand all your phony logic
I was indifferent I saw the first time come on back
Come on back come on back to be in your life

And then it's hard when the local keeps on moving
Got some money and some change
Just to wait for my train
I try to stop me now I'm locked and engaged
Come on back
Come on back, come on back, and leave your pain

When I look you in the eyes it takes me right back
Yeah your future helps me move on from my darkness
Don't give in
It's not real
You're dead by choice,
Choose to feel

we found you laying in your hotel room
with your bible tied up because you were actin' a fool
You started shaking, you were in your bed
Doing everything we could, just hoping that your not dead
We dragged you out and threw you into our car
Pushed the pedal to the floor and drove to the hospital yard
They brought you in and told us both to wait
I was praying to myself, there nothing left


There are consequences, for your actions
There are consequences, it's real life
There are consequences, can't escape from 'em
There are consequences

    General CommentThis song was written about actor Brad Renfro who died of a heroine overdoes. He was Fosters roommate. I remember movies like The Cure, Tom and Huck, Apt Pupil. He was a good young actor. Drugs are bad!
