you paint your leather jacket but it comes off in the rain and the more you cut your hair the more it grows again the badges you pin on yourself fall off or start to rust and the more they take the piss the less people you can trust chorus: its the story of your life and the end of its your death and every word that's in between is just a waste of breath you don't know who you might have been or who you now should be or what you ought to write on walls or why you wanna be free and then you start to panic cos the inspirations there but your not sure how to use it and anyone no one seems to care chorus your the classic all-round failure who never seems to win youd like to write a book but your not sure how to begin its the story of your life and the end of its your death and every word that's in between is just a waste of breath chorus end

    General CommentThe song is about the absence of purpose in life and the futility of mundane actions, they related this point in the best way they could to punk audiences by relating to things having to do with the lifestyle.

    The song also talks about people who want to make a difference but for some reason or another did not have the drive or they inspiration to move forward with their dreams.
