Somehow you seem to have it wrong
You're frozen in one spot
Your time has come, and now it's gone
So step out of your box

Somehow you seem to have it wrong
You're frozen in one spot
Your time has come, and now it's gone
So step out of your box
My old man once told me

"The youth die young
And everything's burning beneath the sun
Like money, family, sanity and love,"
I learned fast watching that grown man run

Some only become what they come from
But I wanna be someone
I want to see I won
Every day I work hard, some nights it eats me
Hardly anything that you love comes easy

Never trust a man who can hand you the world
(The) same world turns around just to f**k your girl
I can't even trust my hands when it comes to a pearl
So keep it close to your body
I'll give it a whirl

And it's true that people do what they can do
If it wasn't, then you would have done it when you wanted to
When you say there's something new
It's already been done
I guess the age has come
When the youth die young

We die young
And we go numb
Oh the world eats its young
And we die young

Somehow you seem to have it wrong
You're frozen in one spot
Your time has come, and now it's gone
So step out of your box

Somehow you seem to have it wrong
You're frozen in one spot
Your time has come, and now it's gone
So step out of your box

We die young
And we go numb
Oh the world eats its young
And we die young

We kids these days do some crazy s**t
Ain't no such thing as Hell when you're raised in it
Mums and Pops never ever prayed for this
We (are) living in their world, but we're saving it

See, we're the same kids; we don't take no s**t
We payed our dues and then scraped to live
The dreams go fast, cause we're chasing quick
It oughta make you think; that's amazing shhhh...

Another late night [?]
You can keep your mouth shut with an open lip
You can lose yourself or get frozen stiff
And I cross my heart cause I hope to live

And if the thrill of the life is getting over it
Then I'll run the rat racing pole positi(on)
It shouldn't make sense cause I'm a golden kid
And the youth die young and it's over quick

We die young
And we go numb
Oh, the world eats its young
And we die young

You...
You only live once
You only live once
You only live once
Once...
