Bm             D
Rubber headed motor junky,
 A               F#      F
Run me down and try to stomp me
Bm              D                A
Throw my life away, and I’ll be worthless
           F# F
Just like you
Bm               D
Somewhere now a baby’s crying,
 A                 F#       F
Down the road his mother’s dying
 Bm              D
Shot a line and blew her mind
     A                  F# F
And now she’s turning blue

Bm                    E
Don’t you throw your life away,
      G           A
Just wait until another day
Bm                    E
Don’t you throw your life away,
       G          A
Cause baby I can feel it
Bm              E
Don’t you ever compromise it,
G               A
Don’t you even realize it
Bm                E
Don’t throw your life away,
       G          A        Bm
Cause baby I can feel it, now

Trip and fall
I'm sure you all can tell me
What is on the wall
Behind the liquor store
where you get smacked up all the time
Perfect little life you wasted,
overdosed and that death you tasted
Scared you back into yourself,
now you walk the line
