"Degenerate" as written by and Scott/hoppus Raynor....
Crossed the street
Naked at night
Bent over to show some moonlight
Pulled out some beer and gulped it down
Nude in a gutter is how I was found
Thrown in a police car and the door slammed
No noise just silence as I screamed my dick was jammed
Now in prison for one month no one to see
All I got is this guy Ben Dover

Don't like hesh-don't like rap
Kicked ol' Sally cause she's fat
I'm a jerk I'm a punk
Took a shower cause I stunk
Smoked a bong killed a cat
Had my nuts attacked by rats
Dad got nude, I wore a thong
For a hobby I make bombs

Went to a farm to tip some cows
Forgot that I left my pants down
Bent over to pick them up
Felt a twelve gauge next to my shit
The farmer took me to his house
Showed me the closet from the inside out
The police came and took me away
Saw Ben Dover again and he's still gay

Don't like hesh-don't like rap
Kicked ol' Sally cause she's fat
I'm a jerk I'm a punk
Took a shower cause I stunk
Smoked a bong killed a cat
Had my nuts attacked by rats
Dad got nude-I wore a thong
For a hobby I make bombs

    General Commentoh, well i have alot to say about this song. first of all this is my favorite punk song of all time. second, what's with parents? i walk around sing this song and they look at me like i just pissed my pants! they say that if my nuts really did get attacked by rats not to tell them. they said if you can sing about it than you can deal with it. yeah, like my nuts are ever going to get attacked by rats. but any one who dosn't like this song can suck my cock, because this is a great song. thank you and goodnight.

    General CommentFirst of all, those are all some incredibly insightfull interpretations you have to offer. especially the one about buying the cd yesterday, that tottally cleared up any questions i had in regard to the songs meaning, thanks. If all your intrested in a big circle jerk around the merits of Blink there are other forums for that. -This Song is a sarcastic rebuttle to criticism's the author has either incurred from others or his own low opinion of himself. It's a juvinille, though adept, response to acqusations and/or feelings of being a degenerate by describing a worse case scenerio by which in comparison the state of the authors own being pales. Its a pat of self assurance on the back to effect of "I could be worse, I could be like this"

    General CommentThis CD is what my friend and I like to call "The Bible" It's the greatest CD ever. It applies to teenage life more than anything I've ever heard.
