lyrics

You were young when you laid your head
in the grass where you now still reside
caught your leg on a beaten path
now you're trapped for the rest of your life

Oh-oh-oh...(refrain)

You were young when you laid your head
in the trap where you now still reside
now your thoughts run around your head
like a tornado trapped in the sky

(Refrain)

Gold sage
Maintain
one finds one way

But you were young when you first saw god
staring down at you from a cross
bowed your head like a good lamb should
where you wait to collect on the cost

(Refrain)

You were young when you made your pact
with the first devil you came across
built yourself on to broken legs
now you wait as the prey for the fox

(Refrain)

Souls say
with age
one finds ones way

but you were young when you laid your head
now wont stop until you're dead
(repeat)

You were young when you realized
lifes a trap for the sand on the beach
all the things that a good man wants
are set just beyond his reach
