"Five Years Dead" as written by and Nikki Sixx....
Uptown downtown
Haven't seen your face around
Paper said you shot a man
Trigger happy punk down in Chinatown

You're five years dead
Sexy Sue from Hong Kong
Asked around right or wrong
Outta town change your name
Or ya get five years with a ball and chain

You're five years dead
You're life's on a steady tilt
I stand around and watch you wilt
Lose or win never mattered mattered to you
They always said you'd fall apart
I took the bet, but I missed the mark
The kid was bad--bad from the start
Left, right, up and down
Same old runaround
Neighborhood professional
Your ass is runnin' into the ground

You're five years dead
Uptown downtown
Haven't seen your face around
Paper said you shot a man
Trigger happy punk down in Chinatown

You're five years dead
