You only live once,
That's the motto we hear.
But we use that as an excuse,
To party and drink beer.
You plunge your needles into your veins,
You roll your dope and snort your coke.
"This is my life, my choices!"
Please tell me this is all a joke!
You say I'm a bigot,
That I loathe the drugs and fun.
But the thing I really loathe,
Is the monster you become.
Friendships, education, family,
These are some things you can lose.
If it came down to those or drugs,
Which would you choose?
Yes, you only live once,
But don't use that as an excuse.
Take advantage of your time now,
And put it to good use.
