"Teenage Jail" as written by and Donald Hugh Henley Glenn Lewis Frey....
Stare out the window,
You can't make the time go
You don't even know why you're here

Wait for the weekend to go off the deep end
And make everything disappear
You're lost in a teenage jail
So you and so vicious and so frail

Where something is always for sale
You're lost in a teenage jail.

You're not like your mothers.
You're not like the others
You're not quite like anyone else,

They don't even know you,
Got nothing to show you,
So get something good for yourself

    General CommentUgh. Terrible song, possibly one of the band's worse. Obnoxious, droning, tuneless, and full of bad "teen angst done by 30somethings" lyrics. I skip over this song every time it comes up.
