Five feet under, he's got one foot in the grave  Would you look at him I think he's lost it
I don't think that he can be saved 

He's got a down payment on his tombstone 
He's not alone his whole life has been out
On a limb. Just look at him, watch 
Him get smashed and race bikes so fast
Just don't laugh, what will it say on his epitaph 
Here he lies may he rest in peace 
Hung on to life by the skin of his teeth  Pushing his luck through the bottle he drinks 

He's got a date with his maker and he
Doesn't want to be late and make no mistake 
He's a good friend so why might his life
Have to end, my friend I don't want to
See you dead
I don't want to see him dead!
I don't want to see him dead!
I don't want to see him dead!
