It takes a long time to kill a man
Fifty-five years at least
Until he breaks down
Starts to look underground
And go off and get him some peace

I want to die a lot quicker than that
If it’s my only way out
I’ve been counting up the cost
Getting up on that cross
Wanna know what this is all about

Father time Steals our days Like a thief
There’s no Price That I wouldn’t pay To get some relief
I’ve become The empy shell
Of a man I like so well
I am a living, breathing hell
Come on and resurrect me

I tried to drown the pain with a friend of mine
It didn’t seem to help
Oh, she’s got a pretty face with a wedding lace
But I’m still waking up with myself

I know what it means to choke it down
Driving ’til your legs get weak
I know what it’s like on a Saturday night
To be alone in a crowded street

Father time Steals our days Like a thief
There’s no Price That I haven’t paid To get some relief
I’ve become The shell of a man
I can’t begin to even understand
Have I forgotten who I am?
Come on and resurrect me…
