Scarred For Life



I grew up fast on a working class street

First thing I learned was life don't come cheap

Technical school it was a waste of time

Makin' robots for some factory line


Got my first tattoo when I was 16

The rebel had lost his teenage queen

I'd taken a stand for an outlaw's life

My ma's words kept ringin', your scarred for life


She said you're scarred, you've been scarred


Scarred for life Scarred for life
I fought my way through the trouble and strife
I was scarred Scarred for life
My reputation it cuts like a knife


I spent some time a guest of the state

I got out and wanted to go straight

People don't forgive, the police force don't forget

I was jailed for crimes I did not commit

I was scarred, I was scarred



Scarred for life Scarred for life
I fought my way through the trouble and strife
I was scarred Scarred for life
My reputation it cuts like a knife
I was scarred Scarred for life
Been knocked around had a hell of a life
I was scarred Scarred for life
I fought my way through the trouble and strife


I fought tooth and nail, every inch of the way

I got scars...to prove it

I was in love for keeps that time

But rock'n'roll was still on my mind

She was young and true and so full of life

And the pain went deep, I was scarred for life

I was scarred, I was scarred, scarred, scarred
Scarred for life

My reputation it cuts like a knife
I was scarred Scarred for life
Been knocked around I had a hell of a life
I was scarred, scarred for life, scarred for life
Yes I've been scarred, scarred for life, scarred for life

Yes I've been scarred...I've been scarred
Scarred for life
