One things for sure that its still the same
That young folk die from some noble aim
And they live so fast and they die so young
And we just keep wondering what the hell went wrong

'Cause they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering, what goes on what goes on

Its such a shame such a useless shame
That they have to play such a hopeless game
And it makes me shake makes me shake with rage
For a wasted life for nothing gained

'Cause they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering what goes on

You got everything to live for, we got everything to live for
Ain't nothing I want to die for no nothing at all
But they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering

One things for sure that its still the same
That young folk die from some noble aim
And they live so fast and they die so young
And we just keep wondering what the hell went wrong

'Cause they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering, what goes on, what goes on

Its such a shame such a useless shame
That they have to play such a hopeless game
And it makes me shake makes me shake with rage
For a wasted life for nothing gained

'Cause they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering what goes on

You got everything to live for, we got everything to live for
Ain't nothing I want to die for, no, nothing at all
But they live so fast but they die so young
And we just keep wondering
