I was born the year punk broke
Days before the king was dead
It was the year of the snake
I was a red-faced child
Who stumbled where he tread
Was kept in orderly file
My parents name me Ed
I tried my hardest to smile
And like my daddy said
I've tried to be myself
Sometimes daydreaming for hours
Wishing for a dangerous life
Cut the leash some slack
Run into the morning light
Race the trains by the track
