In your own time, you'll drink something evil
Sing like an old crow and worship the land
Don't be scared if I walk with the devil
Run down the mountain and ask for your hand

'Cause we only want a life that's well worth living
And sleeping ain't no kind of life at all
Come meet the family and sit by the fire
Someone will catch you if you want to fall

In your own time, you'll dance in the moonlight
Smoke like a freight train and fuck like a dog
Don't be scared if I tell you I love you
I'll be good to you and then I'll be gone

'Cause we only want a life that's well worth living
And sleeping ain't no kind of life at all
Come meet the family and get warm by the fire
Someone will catch you if you want to fall

Someone will catch you if you want to fall

    General CommentI really get a feeling of, not necessarily "reckless abandon" for one's life, but rather making the things you do appreciable to yourself. "Making the most of your time" i guess. Take living, take people, take responsibility and take yourself a little less seriously. do what you want, or you'll fail at living and die angry.

    the stanzas are pretty clear-cut in reference to things in the world that conservative, maybe elderly, shut-in, watchful-eye-type people would call "evil":

    1. In your life you will
    have strong (sexual?) desires
    be belligerent
    disregard your (judeo-christian?) faith at times

    5. in your life, you will...
    not conform to a schedule sometimes
    smoke cigarettes (and other things?)
    fuck like a dog. (sam didn't beat around the bush here!)
