The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

Back when I was just seventeen
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
To be a risin' star that only gleamed
When all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me

I was legal now at twenty-one
I knew the way the world should run
My God, just look what I had done
Simply drunk and havin' fun
Looked for friends but I found none
All alone at twenty-one

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

At twenty-five I was surprised
That I was even half alive
Somehow I managed to survive
I felt my body's doin' time
In my back a hundred knives
All from my friends at twenty-five

And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life if you'd sell
And you would too if less compelled
So live your life and live it well
Theres not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
And all that drives me on
Till all is gone except
The simple plans of mice and men
