LyricsEdit

Play your part
Look at Mars
Crossing

Passing out
On the floor
Warring

With yourself
Whoring out
In the night

Selling things
You would not buy
And your luck's out on the sky

Life time spent
Twenty three
Let it go

Come back home
Come back home
Renounce

Dread the flesh
You used to love
And you

Dread the flesh
So let it go
Let your bleeding tigers go

Like Mars
Crying

Play your part
Look at Mars
Crossing

Passing out
On the floor
Warring

With yourself
Whoring out
In the night

Selling things
You would not buy
Your luck's out

Life time spent
Twenty three
Let it go

Dread the flesh
So let it go
