  • At the end of the road
    As they're daring along
    He jumped to the lion's den

    And the noose was tied tight
    Up around his neck
    He used sand and blood to entertain

    Life is short
    And it's rules are long
    They'll beat you again and again

    When push comes to shove
    Your time is up
    Don't extinguish your favourite flame

    This is not
    A way to end
    Life's too short to
    Waste my friend

    These copper colour hearts
    Exposed to the world
    He spelt pride with his hammer and his tongue

    Face to the wall
    He put his back upon it
    And sank to oblivion

    At a moment a heavy hearts
    Should stand till the bitter end
    The growing crowd
    Is baying for blood
    They want six feet of rope and revenge

    This is not
    A way to end
    Life's too short to
    Waste my friend

    This is not
    A way to end
    Life's too short to
    Waste my friend
