I've lost all the time that I have in this world
I spent it unwisely. Unwisely I see
And I can't get it back
And I can't move forward
I'm broken and I'm empty
It's over for me

If I could undo all the wrongs that I've caused
Fall to my knees pray for swiftness and just
But I'm just a fool
A fool driven to dust
And the world ain't gonna change for me

So give me one more chance to prove these problems and frustrations
Aren't just manifesting memories we're destined to repeat
A second chance to prove I know right from wrong
I swear I'll do things different but can't promise to be strong

[Chorus:]
So come all you losers, you bastards and cheats
Vagrants and barflies down on the streets
Follow this path to salvation, vindication awaits
We're marching on East Broadway street tonight

If you can look into this old face and try to see the young man
I swear I once was pretty, not the monster you now see
But I squandered all my chances
Lost my faith and took for granted
This life and precious one chance the whirlwind I'll reap

If I could undo all the wrongs that I've caused
Fall to my knees pray for swiftness and just
For I'm just a fool
A fool driven to dust
And the world ain't gonna change for me

[Chorus x3]
