Great song, I'm sure all of us but Wrighty can agree with that.
Anyway, does anyone know definitively what the first line of the chorus is?
Sounds like "He was born before you're through" but that doesn't really fit with the rest:
I've got nothing left to prove
If I die before I wake
Hope I don't come back a slave.
In fact I can't find anything on line which sounds 'right' to me...
