He was a boy from a steel town
He soon had a look in his eye
Not the look of a child but the wild look of fury
Like an animal caught in the wire

School was the streets of town
His lesson he learned with his fists
Not a mean man he just felt all-alone
Like a wolf on a hill in a mist

Fast cars, new friends and machismo
Drove him away from his past
Running from the law, running from himself
An outlaw who lived life to fast

How high is high enough
How low can a body go
How deep before you know When you're having too much fun
Don't you know when you're on the run
And you're living under the gun
How high is high enough

When does a man know he is alone
Who does he see in the mirror
Where did he go wrong and could we have helped
Why does it feel he's here
Maybe some day we will learn from the past
From those who have gone on before
That way his life will not have been a waste
And the good won't die young anymore
