(Intro) : This one here's going out to all you outcasts, outsiders and outlaws out there tonight. This is going out to anyone who's ever been locked out, held down and kicked around. This one's going out to all the white trash out there, all the wasted youth. It's going out to anybody who ever felt like they never had a chance. The world we live in is going straight to hell. The fellas I know, there's no where to turn. We're all living in exile.

I've been hanging on the corner
Staring at the night sky watching the cars go by
And I just stand there but they don't see me
I think about the past and I wonder why
A life they'll never see has passed before my jaded eyes
I'm the outside looking in
I hold the burning tears inside my eyes

I've been running with the hunted
I've been running for my whole life
And I got nothing but a hope inside
And my heart feels all messed up
Tears and pain like a stinging rain
Have passed before my eyes

Forsaken from god
If you haven't been dead then you'd never understand
I've stolen, I've cheated, I've lied
I've never had a helping hand
They'll steal your renascense and they'll take away your soul
I've stolen, I've lied
There were times where there wasn't any other place to go
So let's go

How many tears have our mother's cried
How many of our kind have died
So I stand here and I spit it in your eyes
Telling you your society is nothing but lies
They lock us up and they hold us down
Another wasted youth
Another day in town
I've waiting so long
And now my hope is gone

There's gotta be something more than this
There's gotta be something that i missed

How many tears have they torn from my eyes
How many times will we be denied
They lock us up and they hold us down
Another wasted youth
Another day in town
I've been waiting so long
And now my hope is gone

    General CommentYeah I definatly can relate to what he's saying. About 90% of the time I feel like an outcast, outsider, and/or white trash and honestly it does feel like I'm living in exile. No one seems to really see it or really care if the outcasts and shit are feeling left out. Oh fucking well on their part then. We're gonna continue doing what we do best..... which is fuck shit up. And no one is gonna tell us no. This song makes me proud to be an outsider and/or outcast. I makes me realize that this is who I am and the fucks of society better learn to accept it because they can't change me unless the kill me.

    General Commenti think one of the reasons that this song is so great is because almost everyone can relate to it. almost eveyone has felt like theyve been "held down and kicked around" not to mention that its a kick ass song.
