"Tight Wad Hill" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Cheapskate on the hill
A thrill seeker making deals
Sugar city urchin wasting time
Town of lunatics
Begging for another fix
Turning tricks for speed balls
One more night
Making your rounds once again
Turning up empty handed
Bumming a ride
Burning daylight
Last up at dawn... tight wad hill
Drugstore hooligan
Another white trash mannequin
On display to rot up on the hill
Living out a lie
But having the time of his life
Hating every minute of his existence

    General CommentThis is one of the best hard-driving songs on Insomniac. Tight Wad Hill is a hill overlooking John Swett High School in California where all of the druggies would hang out and watch the football games for free. ("Cheapskate on a hill") Great Song!

    General CommentI can't believe only two people have commented on this, but I suppose it's pretty obvious that it's about some junkie.

    General Commenti find it intriguing that the song that was nearly the headliner of insomniac has only four, well now 5, comments.
