"American Waste" as written by and Gary Arthur Mcdaniel....
The worlds got some plans for me Courthouse, jails and factories Black and whites on the street For me for me I see my place in American waste Faced with choices I can't take American waste American waste On my own I see my fate On my own on the way out Small enough its all spelled out I know what I see what I want The doors are closed in this maze I see my place in American waste Faced with choices I can't take American waste American waste On my own I see my fate Boredom looks for its kicks Going down on death I see it coming I can't do anything Not for me not for me I won't end up in the heap I want out I'm free Burning Burning I see my place in American waste Faced with choices I can't take American waste American waste On my own I see my fate

    General CommentI think this song describes the whole punk era during the time. Especially considering that punks were considered low-lifes, etc.
