"Youth" as written by and Merrill Martin Garbus....
Don't let them tell you that your shit isn't brown.
Listen to them long enough and you'll begin to drown.
And all the plastic-eyed 30-somethings trip to the mall,
Disposing of their incomes buying chunks of the wall.
You got to ask yourself the question is my shit not red.
Am I dying on the inside taking shots to the head?
They're going to get you, they'll get you. Its' already done.
Chalk it up to all the time you wasted having fun.

youth
The youth knows the truth.
They're chomping at the bit until they wag a loose tooth.
youth
The youth is not a lie.
If you never caught a rabbit then you ain't no friend of mine.

She asked her mamma, "Can I go run around?".
Her mamma said, "Sit right there and honey don't make a sound".
You've got to push that, and bake it, mock it with a t *
And put it in the oven for baby and me.
You've got to ask yourself the question am I shit out of luck.
Am I a have or a have not and baby who gives a fuck?
You've got to deep* that on now from the pain you feel inside.
A hundred million dollars when your soul up and dies

youth
The youth knows the truth.
But you bloody up their faces screaming words of untruth.
The youth
The youth is not a line.
If you never caught a rabbit then you ain't no friend of mine.

Somewhere a bird is throwing caution to the wind,
Flying to the sun which melts both feathers and skin.
I've got my kidneys, my weak heart, the wheeze in my lungs,
All the earthlings could play kickball with my liver and my gums.
You've got to ask yourself the question and repeat it everyday
Say what's happenin over there to me on the hill.....**
Tear it up for the sister
Rip it up for the child
*Back it up right until we both knockin over these till the kneecaps*

the youth
The youth knows the truth,
But you put us all in prison though you got no proof.
The youth
The youth is not a crime.
If you never caught a rabbit then you ain't no friend of mine.
