"Rite of Spring"

[Verse 1]
I was locked all day in the summer heat
In a small brown house in Suburban Street

With a skateboard and my sh*t guitar
I'd dream all day that they would get me far

My dad would ask me about my grades
The as*h**e sports that I never played

And then I'd ask about the girls he'd date
Behind our backs when mom would stay up late

It was near when I turned sixteen
Got kicked out of school and so it seemed
That things were closing in and ready to blow

My dad moved out about that year or so
It took an hour to start a punk rock band
To offset my f**ked up family land

And as I held my mom would start to cry
I swore ourselves a better life

If I had a chance for another try
I wouldn’t change a thing
It's made me all of who I am inside

And if I could thank god
That I am here and that I am alive
And everyday I wake
I tell myself a little harmless lie
The whole wide world is mine
