Hey kid, watch and follow my direction, I’ll show you what to fold and what to play
Hey kid, tell me everything’s in motion, miss a step, you’ll only throw it all away
Hey kid, step away from your emotion, life’s running and you’ve got no time to waste
Hey kid, take whatever you get ahold of, step into the ride but everybody pays

You’ve got nowhere to turn
You’ll only lose the game
Just stuck in place

Life is yours, yeah, so live it up
Pictures burn and statues crumble
There’s nothing more that you’re giving up
The chase is everything
You can pay for gold with your life’s blood
But only death can last forever
Before we’re all back together
You can live to die or die to live

Hey kid, do you ever need a reason? Take him down and watch them scatter as they run
Hey kid, I smile as you’re beaten, take you in, you know you’re not the only one
Hey kid, will you live for devastation? Turn the lights out and paint your name in blood
Hey kid, never stop and give reflection, shoot to maim, revenge is sweeter with a gun

You’ve got nowhere to turn
You’ll only lose the game
Just stuck in place


Open your eyes, you will find a way
Your life is calling and enter you may
