Derision
Derision aint so bad, it makes me glad Im tougher

For failing all that I have...

Take the map and tear it up

Well find our way anyway.

Wed never gotten this far if wed followed the road.

If you listen close to most advice youll never get anywhere.

Take it from myself because, boy, I ought to know.



I was the kindergarten kid with wrinkled clothes.

I dreaded school more than the chicken pox and so Id go:

Hey Mom, Im really feeling sick,

A bit feverish and I know

That if I go to school today,

Ill probably die on the way from this cold!



Take the map and tear it up

Well find our way anyway.

Wed never gotten this far if wed followed the road.

If you listen close to most advice youll never get anywhere.

Take it from myself because, boy, I ought to know.



69 Malibu and a date I should have missed.

Warm beer and time to kill and a girl to share it with.

Its really late, I sneak around to the gate

To bust her out the window

Wearing lots of black and blending in to all the shadows.

We spend half of the night getting into a fight.

I wanna make up and she goes:

Will you take me home? (NO!)



Lets hear it for derision, for indecision,

Lets hear it for failure. (repeat)
