Biisin tiedot

”I came of age and I found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just waitin’ around to die”

Ryöstön seurauksena joudutaan vankilaan ja ulospääsyn jälkeen tutustutaan hyvään ystävään, jonka nimi on kodeiini.

    Hieno stoori. Wikipedian mukaan: Waiting ’Round to Die” chronicles the life of a fictional drifter as he passes sadly through the experiences of an abusive father, the abandonment of his mother, drug and alcohol abuse, fast women, and even prison.

    Sanat:

    ”Sometimes I don’t know where this dirty road is taking me
    Sometimes I can’t even see the reason why
    I guess I keep on gamblin’, lots of booze and lots of ramblin’
    It’s easier than just a-waitin’ ’round to die

    One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
    He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
    She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee
    It’s easier than just a-waitin’ ’round to die

    I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
    She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
    I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
    Seemed easier than just a-waitin’ ’round to die

    A friend said he knew where some easy money was
    We robbed a man and brother did we fly
    The posse caught up with me, drug me back to Muskogee
    It’s two long years, just a-waitin’ ’round to die

    Now I’m out of prison, I got me a friend at last
    He don’t steal or cheat or drink or lie
    His name’s codeine, he’s the nicest thing I’ve seen
    Together we’re gonna wait around and die”
