Conversations with my bathroom mirror
are never the same
as when you're standing here
I'm chickenshit out on a brave frontier
That teenage wasteland

so begins the Jack Slapp cheer
one, two, three, four!
Your mom ain't home
she's out strippin' for your education
Your dad's out marchin' for the NRA
I'm so damn bored
I'm crawlin' out of my skin
The devil's got more room to play

This town gets so boring
when you're not scoring
It gets so boring and you live right up the street
16 summers, let's make one complete

We're all Jack Slaps here
Jack Slaps, with Jack Slap fears
All lost on the same frontier
so face the facts and sing the Cheer

One, two, three, four!

Your dad stepped out
He's .09 and on the highway
singin' along with the Rolling Stones
I can't get no satisfaction
damn, ain't that true
Bring me home, don't send me home

This town gets so boring
when you're not scoring
It gets so boring and you live right up the street
16 summers, let's make one complete

This town gets so boring
When you're not scoring

This town gets so boring
when you're not scoring
It gets so boring and you live right up the street
16 summers, let's make one complete

    General CommentThis song is awesome.... I really want to see them live, but I missed them when they came into town... damn school nights....
    I think the jack slap fits in because they're completely bored out of their minds. They're used to doing the same old shit, and he (or they w/e) want to hook up with this girl whose got like a fucked up family.

    General Commenti think its about him beatin the meat all the time but wanting this girl---"Bring me home, don't send me home." if you bring him home he's getting sex but if she sends him home its back to jerkin it

    i think thats the obvious...
