  • The part of me that's always sixteen
    I've found the secret of eternal youth
    Some get high on life or money,
    There's an escape, drop out of the race

    To walk through the world by oneself
    You can't be protected
    Your trust is in whiskey and weed and Black Sabbath
    It's goddamn electric

    Don't waste your time
    Embrace it
    And then you'll know yourself
    The change in you is goddamn electric

    The weight of the world has lifted and parted
    My eyes roll blind to sights that distracted
    Through tunnel-vision and dope-hair blinders
    I'll cut a path and evoke my will

    To walk through the world by oneself
    You can't be protected
    Your trust is in whiskey and weed and Slayer
    It's goddamn electric

    Don't fake your life
    Inhale it
    And then you'll know yourself
    The change in you is goddamn electric

    Don't waste your time
    Embrace it
    And then you'll know yourself
    The change in you is goddamn electric
    Will focus the mind's eye (mind's eye)

    One hand on the bottle, the other a shaking fist
    Rejuvenated, isolated, no pressure
    From the outside
    My sight's goddamn electric
    And these eyes have seen a world
    Goddamn electric system

    Don't waste your time
    Embrace it
    And then you'll know yourself
    The change in you is goddamn electric

    Goddamn electric
    Goddamn electric
    Goddamn electric
