Oh brother hear these times of change keep whistling on the vine
Turn the page and come of age, join this struggle to survive
The aches and pains, the balls and chains
The only fact that still remains
I'm running scared and running out of time
I'm running for my life

And nothing seems to cover up the scars
A double dosage tries in vain and rips this broken heart apart
The force fed facts and bad advice
When lightning strikes the same life twice
I'm running scared and running out of time
I'm running for my life

I stepped out of the system, now I'm locked inside a prison
Watching men who order violence light white candles in the silence
Through corruption and confusion, through this precious life I'm losing
See the facts turn into fiction, see my health turn to addiction every time

Brother hear these times of change keep whistling on the vine
Turn the page and come of age, pack your bags and join the line
Think of me as someone that you used to love
At least someone you used to have the time for

Watch the changes up the payments, turning people into patients
See the same who order violence light white candles in the silence
Never looking for a witness, never asking for forgiveness
When I'm running scared and running out of time
