Someone told me once that smoking and drinking and cutting would kill me.

I just shook my head and took another swig.

Made another cut.

Took another drag.

I'm not dead yet, am I?

Somebody told me once that driving too fast and breaking the law and taking drugs would kill me.

I just shook my head and drove a little faster.

Broke another law.

Took another pill.

I'm not dead yet, am I?

Somebody told me once that sex and guns and hanging out with the wrong people would kill me.

I just shook my head and had another one-night stand.

Got another gun.

Made another bad friend.

I'm not dead yet, am I?

Somebody told me once that fighting and getting bad grades and disrespecting authority would kill me.

I just shook my head and fought another fight.

Failed another test.

Snubbed another nose at authority.

I'm not dead yet, am I?

Somebody told me once that it's already too late for me.

I just shook my head and kept on doing what I've been doing.

I'm not dead yet, am I?

Am I?
