Before the gods read my lifelong sentence
Before I get my share, before I walk alone
Before they take away my last temptation
Before my heart's deprived, before they call my name

On the back fences of my dream line
I never lost my mind, I gave it all I had
To get away with the whole damn big bang
For the right reasons, for what you can't take back

Until the drums stop beating
Until the crossroads burn out
I ain't a man until I've done it all

Before my time is up, I'll hang my name
On every trial I'm due for
And even if I can't get justice
I'll take you down to hell

Before my time is up, I'll leave no stone unturned
I won't regret my actions
And even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man before my time is up

I believe that the road goes somewhere
Beyond the empty eyes, beyond the wasted land
When it all fades away to nothing
I wanna know I tried to take a real hard stand

I gotta laugh at the whole damn big bang
I've got to cry sometimes, got to love somebody
Before they read my lifelong sentence
Before I get my share, before I go alone

Until the drums stop beating
To where the crossroads burn out
I ain't a man until I've done it all

Before my time is up, I'll hang my name
On every trial I'm due for
And even if I can't get justice
I'll take you down to hell

Before my time is up, I'll leave no stone unturned
I won't regret my actions
Even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man before my time is
Time is
Time is up

Even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man
Before my time is

Before, before my time is up
