Moms’ in the kitchen giving her power way to a
bottle of wine
Dad’s in the office giving his power away selling
his time
I didn’t learn shit about life I learned to give
my power away
I learned how to escape I learned to be a slave
Mom’s in the kitchen teaching me about obedience
and battery
Dad’s in the TV room screaming something about
authority
I didn’t learn shit about life I learned how to
get high
I learned how to check out
and I learned how to die
LSD my friend, cocaine and speed my friend, beer
and weed my friend, amphetamines
Coffee and cigarettes and never ending need,
Jack Daniels
and needles and little cotton balls full of speed
My friends pick me up and take me away from my
middle class hell I call home
My friends pick me up and take me away from my
middle class hell I call alone
Thanks for the ride, it’s time to say goodbye
I wanted a way out but I didn’t want to die

    General CommentWhile I cant really relate to the words in this song, its probably one of my favorite tunes. Suprise is probably one of the best XV albums in that its a very good and clean recording of their very thrashy punk rock style.
