I knew a girl who had a miscarriage on the bus on her way to Highland Hospital
I knew a girl who was 17 and pregnant she shot heroin in her arm.
I knew a girl was 23, she overdosed and died and now I guess she's free
I knew a boy who threw his body in front of a train guess he couldn't take the hell that lived in his brain
Welcome to Berkeley Punk Rock wonderland
Your heroes on every corner
Fun for the whole family
Fun for the whole family
I knew a girl who couldn't stand being attacked
She died when three bullets pierced her back
I knew a boy who tried to stop a fight he got stabbed to death
I knew a girl who was fifteen years old she died of an overdose and no one seemed to notice
My momma got gang-raped, brought me into the world and gave me away
Welcome to Berkeley Punk Rock wonderland
Your heroes on every corner
Fun for the whole family
Fun for the whole family
You can watch your friends self-destruct
You can watch your innocence corrupt
You can watch your friends corrupt
You can watch your innocence self-destruct
A drunkie's life is so glamorous
A junkies life is so glamorous
A teen parent's life is so glamorous
A dead kid's life is pretty uneventful
