Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Here comes the thunder down under, we're natural wonders

Night falls when we leave all you feel is the hunger

Sunrises of people all shapes and sizes

Dig on the decade and realize it's funky

No matter this rude boy stll got that swagger

My ears have heard all these crews but we're badder

Interracial, special, positive beings

I am I be a cool awakwening

---> Play Riff 2 over:

It's getting hectic the metrics the body electric

Everybody in worn out blue jeans or tacky dresses

This is the city we've reached we've come to

Go unrecognized on the corner or make moves

All the lights are red all the poets are dead

A familiar nightmare appears in my head

Times are a changin' myself I'm rearrangin'

Dream eight-thousand-five-twelve all blazin'

---> Play Chorus (x2) over:

Born to act out, paranoid with a gat

Born to act out, think you know where it's at

Born to act out, but you're lookin' like a sissie

Born to act out, guns are for pussies

---> Play Riff 1 over:

I'm not from Philly but some say I'm a blunt

That's just the way I am and no I'm not going to front

And yes I took a trip to find out about the ways of big

City seedy bars and drugs that make you feel shitty

Pretty older women in skirts conversation frisky

Stinking cigarettes and plenty of bourbon whisky

Sad classical music on the jukebox of doom

Hollywood Blvd. Barfly frolic room

---> Play Riff 2 over:

Tomb of lost souls some beyond salvage

Some just having fun opening steam valvage

I was one becoming the other hellbent to discover

Had to pull up the reigns or else smother

Take it brother all the way and then you're scared

Don't want to be unprepared

You're getting paranoid, and then guns are shared

You guys think you're hard, but you're in fear of getting harmed

I fear no man and I am unarmed

---> Play Chorus (x2) over:

Born to act out, paranoid with a gat

Born to act out, think you know where it's at

Born to act out, but you're lookin' like a sissie

Born to act out, guns are for pussies

---> Play Ending (x2)

---> End on E5 (022xxx)
