He had a stack of dimes for a dink
That he kept hidden from his young tormentors
She crapped in her pants and when it started to stink
They laughed her up a railing high above the river

A goddamn beige curse
She couldn't imagine worse
She once was known for her art
Not anymore

His mom caught him jerking when she got home from work
And it drove him to stick needles in his arm
She gave him one blowjob in the back of a van
And the clap quickly spread across her lips

Oh fuck, there's a fucking curse
She couldn't imagine worse
They thought she was such a nice kid
Not anymore

A bumpy road for thimble-dicks and pubeless dweebs
You with the natural perm, the brown-toothed, the bald-spotted, bottle-glassed puds, fucking halfhead
Boneracked spazzes with limp handshakes and zit cream ordered by mail
No-boobled girls, man-boobed boys, his mom picks his clothes and she smells like pee

These are the mean streets
Don't kill yourself yet
Adulthood's worse
Don't kill yourself at all... yet

    General CommentI think its about being a teenager (adulthoods worse, zit cream ordered by mail, etc.). If you shoot yourself through the head, you'll only have half a head. Its also about how those who don't progress fast enough get the rough of it.

    I'm speculating here, but I think that the whole, being caught wanking thing causing him to take heroin thing is an exaduration to show what drama queens teenagers often are.

    I dunno really.

    "What is a 'Halfhead'?
    Jord Samolesky's worst and inevitable nightmare."
    (FAQ on Propagandhi website)

    "Remember: Only society says a halfhead is undesirable."
    (News, June 29 2006 on Propagandhi website)

    ....yeah, I honestly have nothing better to do.

    General CommentThis song is about how hard it is to be a teenager when it comes to peer pressuring and bullying. And the song ends with saying that adulthood is much worse, so its better to kill yourself then.
