Lyrics

I decided I don't wanna die
It's not what I wanna do
I don't know what I wanna do
But I don't wanna die

I've been fighting for a cause of some sort
I do not know what it is
But I know that I have to be righteous

If I need to get to the other side of where
I'm going wherever that was at the beginning
It's now not the same it's different
I've been searching for a long, long time
Come from a long, long line
Of searchers searching for whatever it is

I've got to keep on going
Got to keep on being stronger
Got to believe there's something for me on the other side to touch

What happens when we die man?
Where the hell do we go?
Ever I thought I know I do not know
Why do I need to know?

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I'm here I'm taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit but taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

So where do I go?
What do I say when I get there
To the people that I will meet?
Do I say "hello" or do I say "hey"?
Will they respond with kindness
Or will they have some of their own shit going on that I will take as being my fault
Deep deep thoughts that take up all my time, oh my
Deep deep thoughts make me angry angry
Makes me wanna fight, makes me wanna kill somebody
Not not not literally, well well well kind of

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I'm here I'm taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit but taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

Big big balls you need
Big big balls you need
Big big big big big big balls you need

Big big balls you need
Big big balls you need
Big big big big big big balls

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I'm here I'm taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit but taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I'm here I'm taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit but taking something
Dirty rotten good for nothing

Take the world for a ride
If there's a riot inside your mind
(Dirty rotten good for nothing)

Take the world for a ride
If there's a riot inside your mind
(Dirty rotten good for nothing)
