​Requiem For Youth

This song is by Witchfinder General and appears on the album Friends Of Hell (1983).

Original video
My life's been abused, my mind is confused
Best must have passed by
So now I must die
Writing these words now, finding it hard
To tell you my problems you'll just disregard

Yeah to these words I write
Oh lend me your ears just for tonight yeah

Love it is something could never understand
Alcohol it seems is all I demand

Deeper and deeper depression sets in
You don't understand now the way I have been

Yeah to these words I write
Oh lend me your ears just for tonight yeah

You say you'll pull through
You don't really care
To you I am scum
Just a flea in your hair

He pays you no money
The boss wants it all
Oh answer him back
Redundant you fall

Redundant you fall

Oh go on they say now through rough and grim
They don't understand the state I am in
I'm lonely and cold now, got scars on my wrist
I know if I die I would not be missed

Yeah to these words I write
Oh lend me your ears just for tonight yeah

I'm on my own now, I stop day and night
Or out on the street I get into a fight

Sorry for myself Yeah maybe it's true
I'm cooped up in my room with nothing to do

Now I'm unemployed
I blame it on them, but I cannot win
Holding the knife now to plunge in my chest
I ain't got the guts maybe it's best
