In this world it's basically learn or burn. Nothing is guaranteed, not even the blood we need.

Lessons can be learned from
a book for one,
or from the tip of a gun.
They can come from
the mouth of a teacher,
or the sermon of a preacher.
Life can be one big lesson,
even without Colonel Colt
or Smith and Wesson.

In this world it's quickly learn,
or eventually burn.
Life can end in a minute,
may not get a chance to
get a lesson in it.
Nothing is for sure,
not even a good cure.

We all take our chances,
get caught up in stupid romances.
But we should learn a lesson,
not be foolishly guessing.
Mess around counting sheep,
may not awake with
nothing to keep.
