Doing Time lyrics

See the fight, old men crying, deny their ruin.
Watch them try. the cynic laughs at the optimists closed eyes.
Darkness falls, curtain calls, the cynics beer soon overflows.
Other watches, has a drink, and from the same cup,
They drink
Im doin time, how long I dont know.
William had 26, blew his brains out, now look at him.
John had only one, watch the mother mourn her only son.
Im doin time, how long I dont know.
Ill kiss goodbye my brain and body
And go to sleep for generations.
And go to sleep for generations.
Salvation:
Cease concentration.
Youll only lose the fight.
Dont tell me whats wrong or right!
Youre losing sight.
Youre just gonna die anyway!
