Of Mice and Men Lyrics

10. Of Mice and Men (4:05)
Track rating :  75 / 100       Votes :  3       [ ]
The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men

Back when I was just seventeen I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene to be a rising star that only gleamed
But all the answers disagreed with the questions held for me
I was legal now at twenty-one, I knew the way the world should run
My God just look what I had done, simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends, but I found none, all alone at twenty-one...

The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men
The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men

At twenty-five I was surprised that I was even half alive
Somehow I managed to survive, I felt my body's doing time
And in my back a hundred knives from my friends at twenty-five
And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell I'd buy your life, if you would sell
A year or two if less compelled, so live your life and live it well
There's not much left of me to tell, I just got back up each time I fell

The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men
The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on and on, that drives me on till all is gone
Except the simple plans of mice and men...
