Bad luck wind been blowin' at my back
I was born to bring trouble to wherever I'm at
Got the number thirteen tattooed on my neck
When the ink starts to itch

The list of lives I've broken reach from here to hell
Bad luck wind been blowin' at my back
I pray you don't look at me

Never had me a name
They just gave me the number 
When I was young

I was born in the soul of misery
Never had me a name
They just gave me the number 
When I was young

They just gave me the number 
When I was young
