Drug money, girls and cars
Oh hey what a wonderful time
Father always said you to you
You got talent to burn
So use it wise

You were looking at 20 to life
Now your dancin’ on the outside
Don’t know what’s comin’ for you
Got your hands on the bottle
Spend your time getting high

And you can’t find peace
When you’re looking
Down the barrel
And the smile on your face
Hides the fear in your soul

The hard man smile is
Going down
You run and hide but you’re
Always found
Everybody changed you
Now they’re gonna rearrange you
You climbed so high
It’s all gonna come back down

You hold your head up high
Oh hey you’re a lucky man
Got away with everything
Except the concrete boots
At the bottom of the dam

They’re waiting for you maybe
Not now, maybe not tomorrow
But that clock is ticking down
And it ain’t gonna matter
If you beg, steal or borrow

(Pre chorus 1)


Can’t find peace
When you lookin’
Down a barrel
