Just like I hate Fenders.
Just like I can't stand the snow.
Just like my hand-me-down truck that I miss so much,
even with no stereo.

And just like fucking with a condom on,
though I've got no fucking disease.
Like getting tested for a brand new girl
who just turns around and leaves.

Like full-time school, a part time job,
and a niece I never see.
Like headwinds. Girls with boyfriends.
No money for no TV.

Just like that headstone with my name
engraved from a generation passed.
Like being twenty-three on Thursday.
Like growing up too goddamn fast.

Like a cell phone full of numbers
but not one soul I want to call.
Just like half-read books read by well-read eyes
that pretend to have read them all.

Like following a dream
that cripples you with debt.
Like laughing at a joke
that hasn't caught up with you yet.

Because I once new why in those Kris Kross days.
Spin the bottle and she moves in mysterious ways.
Like a stupor.
A Winnie Cooper.
But now nothing makes sense to me.

    General Commentthis song is ridiculously good, and dangers are arguably the best hardcore band around at the minute.
    yes.

    meaningwise, this song is pretty much anger wrapped up in musical form, and Al is pretty much screaming about how jaded he is with growing up.

    It's a shame not many people know of this band, they're fucking brilliant.

    General CommentAmazing song. You can feel the hatred in this band. By far one of the best bands today. Its sad that they aren't known simply (and this is arguable) because they don't have a myspace.

    I like this line. He sees his name on a headstone. Someone else had his name, now they're dead. One day, he'll be that headstone. The 'twenty-three on thursday' line always get me. I'm turning 23 in a few months. Shit does suck.

    fucking. heavy.
