The Life

This song is by Dope and appears on the album American Apathy (2005).

It's getting late and something is waiting in the city tonight
This place is crazy and it makes me wanna fuck up my mind
I like the lights the trippy lights and all the pornographic stores
I light this thing as they complain about the junkies and the whores

When I was young I dreamed I'd come here and I guess I did
Survive the scum and I'd become someone but never did
These village slums I let become my life I guess I did
I'm just a bum pathetic scum that's just the way I live

This is the life
You want the life
NO

It's getting late and guess who's playing in the city tonight
This place is amazing and it makes me wanna fucking get high
I love the way the buildings sway and all the garbage on the streets
The sounds of trains and sirens make lovely music while I sleep

I'm going farther than I ever thought far could be
By 21 I had a gun and ditched authority
At 22 I never knew the sights I would see
At 24 I made the score that killed that part of me

This is the life
You want the life
NO
