"Had Enough" as written by and Pete Townshend....
You were under the impression
That when you were walking forward
You'd end up further onward
But things ain't quite that simple

You got altered information
You were told to not take chances
You missed out on new dances
Now you're losing all your dimples

My jacket's gonna be cut and slim and checked
Maybe a touch of seersucker, with an open neck
I ride a G.S. scooter with my hair cut neat
Wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet

Love Reign O'er Me
Love Reign O'er Me
Love

I've had enough of living
I've had enough of dying
I've had enough of smiling
I've had enough of crying
I've taken all the high roads
I've squandered and I've saved
I've had enough of childhood
I've had enough of graves

Get a job and fight to keep it
Strike out to reach a mountain
Be so nice on the outside
But inside keep ambition

Don't cry because you hunt them
Hurt them first they'll love you
There's a millionaire above you
And you're under his suspicion

I've had enough of dancehalls
I've had enough of pills
I've had enough of streetfights
I've seen my share of kills
I'm finished with the fashions
And acting like I'm tough
I'm bored with hate and passion
I've had enough of trying to love

    General Commenthmmmm...loosing faith in people in general? especially the references to christianity (love my brother/ won't turn the other cheek)

    interesting how he says 'i've had enough of being good' but then says the whole world is loosing its love.

    General Comment"What's the point? I've had enought of this s**t, I can't live anymore, I can't live this pettey 'MOD' Lifestyle..."

    Note that Pete Townshend said "Mod is a shorter word for 'young beautiful and stupid.'"
