Youth Gone Wild

Jen and I used to jam to this song in the morning...and at lunch during our senior year. This song represents (to me) the stigma that if we don't conform to what society deems appropriate that we will fail to accomplish anything or get anywhere in life. I have always felt judged by that standard.
In my life experience, you have to be flexible. You have to do what you want and be who you are, but you also have to concede sometimes to do a little of what's expected instead of what's wanted. Too much of any one thing is not a healthy way to live a balanced life.


"Youth Gone Wild"


Since I was born they couldn't hold me down
Another misfit kid, another burned-out town

Never played by the rules I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere

I look and see it's not only me
So many others have stood where I stand
We are the young so raise your hands

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're the one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

Boss screamin' in my ear about who I'm supposed to be
Getcha a 3-piece Wall Street smile and son you'll look just like me

I said "Hey man, there's something that you oughta know.
I tell ya Park Avenue leads to Skid Row."

I look and see it's not only me
We're standin' tall ain't never a doubt
We are the young, so shout it out

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're the one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're the one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild
We are the youth gone wild
