Bad Religion

A Streetkid Named Desire

 

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

Just a little too guilty, just a little too soon

That day was just like any other day

No work, and no pay

I knew that paradise was some other place

And I'd get there another day

I will find it before I expire

'Cuz I've got the desire

Well, it was punk-fifteen in the evening

And it was time to set the town on fire

I saw my boots and my hair

As reflected in the mirror

Reveal a streetkid named desire

I didn't give a damn

Because I was just dying to be

And as the Hollywood street scene

Left its mark on me

I changed from a boy into a man

I said "never again!"

I stuck out my chin when I should have ran

Shit in the fan

I was driven so hard

By the sound of my heart

But that day was just like any other day

No work, and no pay

I knew that paradise was some other place

And I'd get there another day

I will find it before I expire

'Cuz I've got the desire

When the walls surround

In deeper shades of blue

And there's no voice of reason inside you

And you search for meaning

On an empty shelf

Then you're always dreaming

Of somewhere else

Today is just like any other day

No fear, no restraint

I know that paradise is some other place

And I will get there another day

You can come with me,

No conditions or fares

Somehow, somewhere,

I will find it before I expire,

'Cuz I've got the desire
