At the end of the rope is a dead road
He jumped to the lion’s den
The noose was tied tight all around his neck
He used sand and blood to entertain

Life is short and the rules are long
They’ll beat you again and again

When push comes to shove, your time is up
Don’t extinguish your flickering flame

This is not the way to live
Life’s too short to waste, my friend

His copper colored heart, exposed to the world
He spelt pride with his hammer and his tongue
Face to the wall, he put his back upon it
And sank to oblivion

And a moment
The heavy heart should stand to a bitter end
The growing crowd is baying for blood
They want six feet of rope and revenge

This is not the way to live
Life’s too short to waste, my friend

This is not the way to end
Life’s too short to waste, my friend
