I was a city baby raised
On a well-worn street
My daddy hated it because of it's fame
I never noticed really
I was too young at the time
To care about the history in it's name

Some years go by
And they move me to the sticks
Some dinky satellite of my old home
And it was there I took off
To meet my mind on the streets
And it was there I made off on my own

And I've been sick
And I've been tired
I've been a madman slashing tires and starting fires
I'm not afraid
Cowards be damned
I'm full of pill and smoke and booze
And I'm teenage

A few wasted years
A cup of tasteless tears
I learned my lessons the old fashioned way
Some think I'm angry and mean
But hell, I'm only 18
There's only so much a kid can take

Another day another time
My life and loves are in line
But I never lost the nerve that I had
I kept my insides clean
My soul solid and lean
My independence guiding me through the crap

And I've been sick
And I've been tired
I've been a madman slashing tires and starting fires
I'm not afraid
Cowards be damned
I'm full of pill and smoke and booze
And I'm teenage
(x2)

Gimme some pills and smoke
