Well I lived this life and I was just seventeen
This house was built on mama's broken dreams
And it took me by surprise
When she looked me in the eye
Oh

And I arrest these teachers for what they have read
And give all your money to the living dead
Like a call girl in her prime
Arriving just in time
Oh

And I am a sentimental man
I try to reach to God with just one hand
Rejecting offers to be with you
All that does is to
Keep you by your side
A new way to wave goodbye
And I'm waiting...
I'm not waiting!

And I'm redefining what they could not deceive
Upon their big arrival and then she don't think
Take them off to war
If you wanna ask me for some more
Taking your days, in her prime
Just in time

    General CommentOh no, it's quite old. It's from the infamous Arlene Grocery gig, back in April 29th, 2000. It's one of their older songs that they never released.

    General Commentto me this song sounds like it's about a student has sex with the teacher and then sues the teacher for money?

    General CommentWhen i listen to this song, i hear an influence from The Doors. like when he sings "Like a call girl in her prime - arriving just in time" i like it though. and i like how Jules says "mama's"
