There's a place where I like to go
When I got no food or I got no shelter
It's a house where I can get away
For maybe 3 days
To get off the drink and stay off the haze

Who's the opposition
I'm 7 years down
The human spirit prevails
Yeah I'm down down down

Woke up in the bushes 6:30 Tuesday morning
With a unopenned Heineken a head that was burning
For 7 years I walked the same path
Dreams of being loved was all I ever had

Who's the opposition I'm 7 years down
The human spirit prevails
Yeah I'm down down do

    General CommentThis is a great song about quitting drugs and drinking
    the 'whos the opposition' part referring to a struggle where the only enemy is yourself
    i think the seven years down thing is just like him sayin he been clean for 7 years... which is an incredible feat for a punk rocka

    and that last chorus is somethin like

    "????kids smoking crack and drinkin
    They Said I don't belong here, fuck you mohican
    They call me a faggot and they shove me out.
    But I don't give a fuck, I never did."

    General Commentthe lyrics are very literal. he followed the drug and drinking path for seven years, he had enough and went to live in a house for a couple days at a time to help him stay of the "drink and haze".

    General Commenthey ska-face
    hmm I was pretty positive the lyric
    "they said you don't belong here, fuck you mohican"
    which was a reference to him having a mohawk
    let me insert something here

    "MOHICAN:
    A hairstyle in which the entire scalp is shaved, save a strip of hair from the forehead to the neck. This is usually dyed and/or spiked up. also known as the mohawk "

    but the meaning is pretty much what cranefist said

    General CommentThere's a mistake in the lyrics, it's actually "Dreams of being loved was all I ever had" not "A drinking beer mug was all I every had".
