A needle in the arm
now your dead
think about your old life
not your new one instead

you were an idol
an icon at most
you used to drink champaign
you used to make the toast

now rich people laugh
the poor wonder why
somebody with all of it
let it go to get high

many people greet you the same
a kick, a spit, or the look of shame
not me because i knew
i knew the old girl, not you

so in the alley die
cry about your life
remember that because of you
i died with a knife
