- LyricsI've had the same jeans on for four days now
I?m gonna go to a disco in the middle of the town
Everybody?s dressing up I?m dressing down
Life?s one big circle, and it does end
When it ends will you still be my friend?
- LyricsSuperstar tradesman, stand at the bar
Get a trade son you will go far
You have a house in the ferry and a new guitar
That's never been played before and it never will
Never been played before and it never will
- LyricsThinking of poems of poverty
Sitting with a tight clenched wrist, thinking how to gain authority
Oh what a soft touch of a boy
He'd wander with pride to sell and keep visions to his self
Visions to his self
- LyricsYou have a face for the radio,
But I know you'd like to see it in a show,
Claiming to be the next best everything,
Which way will you go?
You're a little smarter than most of us,
- LyricsSkag trendy thinks he knows just what to do
He was only seventeen and he was out screwing the brew
Thought that parents were too old, teachers told him what to do
Master skag trendy, he'd like to talk to you
He told his mother what he was all about
