lyrics

When you've run out of reasons and don't know what season you're living in or where you came from
Or how you got here no your mind ain't too clear only thing you been feelin' is numb
And you're searching your soul tryin' to fill the deep hole you've been diggin' since you were a child
Half livin' half dead 'bout as deep as it gets livin' wild as the wild is wild

What makes us do things that we don't want to do is beyond me
When you're out past the gates crawlin' day after day like a zombie
When you know you've been beat you can smell the defeat
And you're strugglin' to make the last mile
If the chains gonna' break better do what it takes
Livin' wild as the wild is wild

Oh card tricks and hat tricks and ne'er do well side-kicks they'll pick at the wound 'til it bleeds
Long nights and loose ladies and total 180s they'll drop kick you down to your knees
But a good shot of hope is the best kinda' dope no you ain't comin' down for awhile
So mainline your veins say goodbye to the pain livin' wild as the wild is wild

What makes us do things that we don't want to do is beyond me
When you're out past the gates crawlin' day after day like a zombie
When you know you've been beat you can smell the defeat
As you struggle to make the last mile
If the chains gonna' break better do what it takes
Livin' wild as the wild is wild

When enough is enough and your raw nerves show up
Like a scrappy red headed step child
You can't take anymore and it's time to wage war
Livin' wild as the wild is wild
