"A Nervous Kid" as written by and Tim Adrian Rogers....
A little freckled wonder
A BMX riding bandit
Chucked a cigarette in passing, yeah
Called me a faggot

My skinny little hands ...
To find something ...
I was angry .... full of beans
Essentially just a n-n-n-n-nervous kid

It was the year of care for kids
They even made a campaign song
They used to sing it as I entered the room
Before light switched on

Just In case my lone obductor
Was to spark a message within
I was eager to learn
Full of sunburn
Essentially just a n-n-n-n-nervous kid

So I made a pact with the silence
If you get me out of this one
I'll be true to what I was born to do and be a Roustabout, roustabout
Yeah a Roustabout

It was the year of gettin' loose
It was the year that my head broke
Clueless and free in the ACT
My mind buckled its spokes

... was like a hummingbird
I cried til it returned
I want to drag that son
Show him i won
Essentially just a n-n-n-n-nervous kid

So I made a pact with the silence
If you get me out of this one
I'll be true to what I was born to do and be a Roustabout (a roustabout)
Be a Roustabout (a roustabout)
Be a Roustabout..

It ain't easy...

Go!

    General CommentDefinitely a reference to Tim being a shy kid and growing up into the rock star he is. Also talks about his schizophrenic episodes and mental disease earlier on in his life.
