    I know these kids
    And they love to get high
    Probably to try escape the same things that I
    Have battled with
    And now steamed into our psyche
    At one point or another we're all convinced that we might be
    Just a tad bit broken
    And only hear the bad even when good things are spoken
    We find solace and find patterns in bottles
    And a lot of us become the demons that we can't abolish
    So we apply the polish
    Put up a front that say's we're okay
    But in reality we're demolished
    See there's a lot of different ways to kill yourself
    While some of them are blatant others are hidden well
    And when your family can't tell
    And it's you against the world
    But your whole world's a living hell
    And if you're anything like me then you've gotta known that you're not alone
    And we've all been twenty-three

    [Chorus]
    And I wish that you hadn't done it
    Could have won it and moved on from it
    Now we'll never grow old together
    But you're in my memories…

    [MC Lars]
    Remix!
    I wrote this song four years ago
    A lot of healing has taken place since then

    A girl in London told me that her boyfriend took his life
    He was twenty-three
    I said it hurts but it's alright
    I told her not to worry
    He'd be up in Heaven waiting
    I don't have the answers
    But listen this is all I'm sayin'
    I've seen the demons too
    They wanna take me down
    I felt the darkness closing in like no one is around
    I've battled with this feeling even though I keep it quiet
    I miss my homie Pat
    And I can't deny it
    I've wrestled with the guilt like maybe it was all my fault
    And so I write these songs
    Because it's all I've got
    It's such an honor rocking mics with Science every night
    Making music, touring Europe
    Keeping his memory alive
    We raised a grand for the AFSP
    Pat, I see you homie and I hope you're proud of me
    You said that rap was magic every time I did my vocal takes
    It's funny how the heart can heal, even when you've felt it break

    [Chorus]
    And I wish that you hadn't done it
    Could have won it and moved on from it
    Now we'll never grow old together
    But you're in my memory
    As twenty-three

    [MC Lars/Pat]
    "Ladies and gentleman, I want you to meet a good friend of mine, this is Patrick Wood"
    "What's up, Lars?"
    "What's up Pat?"
    "How're you doin', man?"
    "Good. What do you think about my recording equipment
    taking up three-quarters of our small room in the Kimble dorm?"
    "It's no problem man, I love you."
    "I love you too, Pat."
    "Thanks, Lars."
    "Pat Wood, hey, that's you!"

    [Chorus]
    And I wish that you hadn't done it
    Could have won it and moved on from it
    Now we'll never grow old together
    But you're in my memories
    And I wish that you hadn't done it
    Could have won it and moved on from it
    Now we'll never grow old together
    But you're in my memory
    As twenty-three
