Isolated junk yard, letting out the garbage
Eating through the core of life
Sweet fragrance irritates, in a state room death awaits
Persecute your own self pride

Suffocate the new high, ride the thorny mule that cries
Dig your grave and step right in
And like a Judas pay the price, 30 pieces for a ride
Here's the fire take a chew

Do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey, there ain't much time

And do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
And get yourself together
Hey, there ain't much time

Shredded know how give away, species of a human race
Those funky winds of ups and downs
Hall of grit is known too well, Heaven still is your hell
Poison slowly, slowly drown

Let the Devil step right in, Lucifer's your only friend
Ain't a soul gonna pity you
Hurdle over time to death, with open arms it waits I bet
Don't you wish you could reach ground

Do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey, there ain't much time

Do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
Ah, get yourself together
Hey, there ain't much, hey, there ain't much time
There ain't much time

Hey don't you feel yourself goin' down?
You're goin' down
Hey don't you feel yourself goin' down?
You're goin' down
Hey don't you feel your brain is goin'?
You're goin' down

Do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
Ah, get yourself together
Hey, there ain't much time

Hey, do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
Oh get your fuckin' self together
Hey, there ain't, there ain't much time

Oh, oh I think, think, think, think, think
I think, think, think, think, think
I think, I'm gonna play a little low about it
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
All the way, the way, the way down
Goin' the way, the way
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
Don't you know I don't believe that lovable

Do yourself a favor
Do yourself a favor
Educate your mind
