21 Club

one leg in the grave
the devil's yanking down
going too fast
bound to die young
it's the adults that failed them
the pharmaceuticals that supply them
kids with no guidance
clueless to what's right and wrong
one day they will see
by then it's too late
addicted to the way
afraid to make a change
been doing it 24/7
trying to be a role model
with no role model
leaving one choice
and all the love in the world won't save them
the potential is wasted
if you look right
you can see the fear in their eyes
depressed while pretending to be happy
with no time to cry
just time to get right with the maker
tell goodbye to the haters
not everyone gets to grow old
some people won't make it passed 21
