Risk my soul
Test my life
For my bread
Spend my time
Lost in space
Am I dead?

Oh Let the river flow
Through my callused hands
And take me from my own
The eyes of the damned

It makes my stomach churn
And it tears my flesh from bone
How it turns our dream to stone
And we all die young

Oh tell me I know
I live so afraid
And still we cry alone
With words left unsaid

It makes my stomach turn
And it tears my flesh from bone
How it turns this dream to stone
And we all die young
Yeah we all die young

Yeah we all die young
Yeah we all die young
Yeah we all die young
Yeah we all die......young

    General CommentI think that this is reflecting on your life after its too late, when you realise all the things you should have done that you didnt, and you have wasted your life. And therefore we all die young, just as we realise what we should have done

    General CommentMan , TheBible > If you're gonna present an opinion and try to make yourself seem intelligent or knowledgeable, you should probably try using proper grammar

    Also, I think omegathehead is right

    General CommentThis song is definitely about wasted life, moments, that are gone and that you can't change. The power of the youth, where the decisions are made, it's all gone, you are just a consequence of your past and there's something you want to change. We had something we dreamed of, but we haven't done it or done it wrong - "How we turn a dream to stone".

    TheBible => Steel Dragon is a fictional band with great musicians in it, like the guitarist Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society), bassist Jeff Pilson(BLS), drummer Jason Bonham(ex-Led Zeppelin), vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (Rising Force) and others.

    Steel Dragon actually is Judas Priest, the singer that was fired in the movie is Rob Halford, who came back later. The movie was named Electric Eye, but they renamed it to Rock Star.

    General CommentWhat 'We all die Young' means to me, is that by the time we finally realize what life is really about and we start cherishing it.... Its time too die. Youth is wasted on the young

    General CommentSouthpaw2g2 dude/dudette, there is no "yea we all die young" after the 1st verse but it is there after the 2nd, and during the pre-chorus its still just "flesh from bone"

    General CommentI think this song is about living a wasted life and seemingly we all don't live life they way we really should so I guess "we all die young"
