"Stick Up Kid" as written by Chad Everett Gilbert, Freddy Cricien, Maxwell Jayson, Toby Raymond Morse, George Guerra and David Kennedy....
Oh, I bet you never seen it coming.
I see them running all too scared 'cause I am there, gun in hand.
Hands up, everybody get 'em up!
Hands up, 'cause I don't give a fuck!
You could have shown me some more class
Now you'll feel the wrath from the gun blast
(The gun blast)
It all happened so fast.

Could've been a stick up kid (No!)
Should've been a lot of things (Whoa!)
Would I change everything
Or anything for who I am today?

So, I guess I better keep it moving
As I walk away impaired
Guess who is there, gun in hand?
Hands up, everybody get 'em up!
Hands up, 'cause now I'm really fucked!
I should've chosen another path
But now I'll feel the wrath from the gun blast
(The gun blast)
It all went by so fast.

Could've been a stick up kid (No!)
Should've been a lot of things (Whoa!)
Would I change everything
Or anything for who I am today?

Would I change everything? (No!)
I wouldn't change anything. (No!)
All that I've done and seen
Has helped me be
The man I am today
This is who I became.

Could've been a stick up kid
But everything's not always what it seems.

Could've been a stick up kid.
Should've been a lot of things.
Could've been a stick up kid.
Should've been a lot of things.

Could've been a stick up kid (No!)
Should've been a lot of things (Whoa!)
Would I change everything
Or anything for who I am today?

    General CommentIt's a song written from the perspective of a kid who grew up in a rough neighborhood who is both proud of his past and thankful that he didn't end up leading a criminal life.
    Great song.
