"Down For Life" as written by Joseph Angel and Darren Billy....
When I see my brother
What I see is like no other
What we had forever lost
Can't deny our friendship

Feeling like it's time to end this
Bad relation ripped apart

When we're young
And disaranged
We didn't know it
Any other way

Now were grown
He's still the same
People see him suffering

I am not about to run away
Turn my back to him
In his darkest hour
Give him will to fight

Antagonize his thoughts
See him thew his thoughest times
Purify his weakened heart

All the friends
We feel the same
The way it was
Back in the day

The more we change
He stays the same
Will we ever see our friend again

I... feel that...
I can't protect myfriend from himself

All I've got
Are these lessons learned in life
The lessons I've been taught
They still remain

Inside me thoughts
Even as we speak
As troubled as it seems
He'll always be a friend of mind

That's the way it was
And always will be

When we're young
And disaranged
We didn't know it
Any other way

Now were grown
He's still the same
People see him suffering

I... feel...
I cannot help my friend
Help him self

You... can't hear what I say
Never going away...
Still friends down for life...
Can you still fight...

All I've got
Are these lessons learned in life
The lessons I've been taught
They still remain

Inside me thoughts
Even as we speak
As troubled as it seems
He'll always be a friend of mind

That's the way it was
And always will be

Now in the end
It plain to see
What kind of friend
He has been for me

All along he could never see
Who he was
And always be

I... feel...
I cannot help my friend
Help him self

    General CommentRocking trax about friendship. It's about helping a friend who has embraced a wrong living style. Friendship is always the best medicine

    General CommentAngiaz is right, but I think the song is also suggesting to avoid making it a co-dependent relationship. The "I can't help my friend help himself" line suggests that, even though Chuck will help his friend best he can, it's ultimately up to his friend to respond to his help.

    General CommentToo obvious for my liking, music is tasty though.
