 Going to a hellish place

'Cause I done a lot wrong in life

Wrong with good intent

And wrong meant to cause harm


Hurt a lot of honest folks

Who only extended hand and heart

Oh, what kind of monster am I

To live in a limbo of regret

Caught in between caring and not


I want to be good

So why is it so fun to be bad

And hard to do the right thing

To be the bigger man


Temptation is always knocking

It's come a-knocking at my door

Too hard for me to resist


Can't take the pressure much more

I love the world and it's inhabitants

But I can't help but to think

Better off you'd be without me


For I am old and weary

My bones ache from a thousand rains

Time to lay me to rest

So I may be rid of all my guilt and pains


Listen close to my advice before I go

Goodbye and so long

May you fine the right path in life

A path completely devoid of wrong
