Get drunk
Get stoned
But be careful
The Buddhists say
Drinking is nothing
But it can make us do
Unreasonable acts
Don't let it get the better of you
Get ugly
Out of control
Use karma
As your compass
Make your mistakes
Make your apologies
Know a lot of girls
Minds and bodies
Be wise
Be positive
Life's not so bad
When you think about it
When things get too dark
Seek out the light
Power is all about balance
Of good and bad
Do nice things for yourself
Spoil yourself
And when you get old
Look back with pride
Sign it off
With a smile
And tell God
I didn't just survive
I strived
