lyrics

I was a bad kid
I was a punk
And as you can imagine
I didn't amount to much
Well this is what happens
In the ghetto and such
And it isn't that tragic
Okay maybe a touch

I used to stand on the corner with pockets of drugs
All my best friends were the kids who couldnt get enough
Yeah they could never get enough
Yeah, I could never get enough

I walked out the front door
So I guess it's my fault
I was just sick of the cop cars
Getting calls for assault
But when you're a write-off
You get blamed by default
They stick you in a halfway house full of thieves and pimps
And fill you full of lithium salts

You know I used to stand on the corner with pockets of drugs
All my best friends were the kids who couldnt get enough
Yeah they could never get enough
Yeah I could never get enough
Yeah I can never get enough

When you grow up like that you learn you gotta learn to make it back
Cause every morning when you leave the house
You get a one way ticket out
And you know you gotta learn to make it back
And nobody's gonna bring you home
Nobody's gonna bring you back
Nobody's gonna bring you home

I used to stand on the corner with all kinds of drugs
All my best friends were the kids who couldnt get enough
Yeah they could never get enough
Yeah they could never get enough
Yeah I can never get enough
Yeah I can never get enough
I can never get enough
