"Blooming 18" as written by - Joker and Billy Steinberg....
Reality reality reality is always
You tattooed yourself what a piece of art
You've already broken your mother's heart
When I was your age working my ass off
Your generation's soft

Reality is always such a drag
For barely blooming eighteens
The barely blooming eighteen
Wants to know

What's keeping her from searching
You cannot pierce that and
You're dressed too tight

Got a lot to learn about wrong and right
So dye you hair, dad's gonna wash it out
Come on wash out your mouth

Reality is always such a drag
For barely blooming eighteens
The barely blooming eighteen
Wants to know

What's hiding in the shadow
Reality reality reality is always
Reality is always

    General CommentThe song is saying that 18 is a difficult age. You're officially considered an adult, and everyone expects you to act like one, but you are torn between growing up and/or holding onto your childhood. Also, even though you're an adult and should get to make your own decisions, your parents are still controlling many aspects of your life and you feel conflicted and trapped.
