Wasted Life Lyrics

8. Wasted Life (4:34)
Locked in a dark cell, going nowhere
Thinking of the days gone by
Scanning, searching, always looking
Is it just a waste of time?
Promises of life were shattered quickly
Was it such a vicious crime
To deserve the punishment of a lifetime?

Late at night, I lie awake
Thinking of all my mistakes
If I had a chance to change
I would play a different game

Growing up in misery,
Each day I lived a lie
No one there to guide my thoughts
No one even cared
Sucked into a life of crime
By poverty and despair
That's no excuse for what I did
But what would you have done

Full of hate, I lie awake
Thinking of all my mistakes
Can I stop this horrid pain
And have a chance to live again?

You don't know what I'd give
To be amongst the free ones again
To sin, and do what I please oh yeah
Wasted life
Once you've gotten the taste
You'll never change
Despite the punishment you shall receive

Sitting alone the days pass by me
Just like they were standing still
The thought of a lifetime in this hell hole
Is too much for me to bear
I'll end it all and escape forever
There'll be no bars to hold me in
Now it's time for me
To commit my final sin

Now the blood drains from my soul
Wasted life, how could you know?
Now I'm finally free at last
Forget about my evil past
