The phoenix he helped create
Out of control boy without a dad
Shot the gun that startled my life
While I drove him with a forty-five

Your men fall unrealized
Unrealized, unrealized

Making a decision of death
While everyone around you plead
That you fly in peace
I hope, my friend
A man can't avoid what he's meant to do
When he's meant to do it
Even if he doesn't really want to

My memories are of fun and friendship
Of weakness within the strength of youth
For reasons undefined, reasons undefined
Reasons undefined, reasons undefined

Friends for years, images in red
Blew off his own motherfucking head
Confidence, death, insecurity
Your men fall unrealized

Don't you realize evil lives in the motherfucking skin?
Don't you realize that evil lives in the motherfucking skin?
Don't you realize that evil lives in the motherfucking skin?
Don't you realize that evil lives in the skin?

Don't you realize evil lives in the motherfucking skin?
Don't you realize that evil lives in the motherfucking skin?

Why the fuck did you take him away from us, you motherfucker-fucker-fucker-fucker
