(For this hammer on note make sure you hit the low D note right after
 you do the hammer on, on the fifth fret, to get the sound Daniel does
 you may also want to do 0h3h5p0, but to get right sound you must hit
 the low D)

View Just Lyrics...

Lived too long now you've come to take me too
To place where I can't die.
Lost my soul lost my confidence in me.
Can't be something but I'll try.
Lived too long and waited to just drown.
In my self pity I keep falling down.

Want to be your soldier
Want to be your slave
I have no pride in myself

Only book that I own is called "How to Lose".
Pick a chapter I know them all just choose.
Lived too long and waited to find
A place where I can die
Lost my soul lost my confidence in me
Give me something but I'll try

Want to be your soldier
Want to be your slave
Have no pride in my self
That's how I behave
