Well, it was punk-fifteen in the morning
And it was time
To stand my ground
And as the gawks and stares bombarded me
You know, I didn't even
Hear a sound
No one gave a damn
If I was there or away
If I died and went to hell,
They'd throw a party on my grave
And they'd all say,
"This kid is just a fool, he'll never be cool,
They might as well just ship him off
To some other school"
Plain destitute
