Well, it was punk-fifteen in the morning
To stand my ground
You know, I didn't even
No one gave a damn
If I died and went to hell,
And they'd all say,
They might as well just ship him off
Plain destitute
That day was just like any other day
I knew that paradise was some other place
I will find it before I expire
Well, it was punk-fifteen in the evening
I saw my boots and my hair,
Reveal a street kid named desire
Because I was just dying to be
Left its mark on me
I said "never again!"
**** in the fan
By the sound of my heart
In deeper shades of blue
And you search for meaning
Then you're always dreaming
Today is just like any other day
I know that paradise is some other place
You can come with me,
Somehow, somewhere,
Cause I've got the desire
