Against All Authority Nothing to Lose

He's running wild through the streets at night
but he's hiding in the shadows by the break of day (go!)
He's got a clip-on Spyderco knife
but it's just for keeping the wolves at bay (go!)

It's 2am, fucked up again
he's living in the bottle cause he's living with the pain

Insane, poking his veins
he's standing in the rain
with nothing to lose but everything to gain!

Unwanted, unforgiving
He's tired of running
He's tired of living here, swigging beer
With nothin' to fear
He's got nothing to lose so he's always winning!

(He's suffocating)
The pain can be excruciating
(And liberating)
It helps him forget the world he's hating
(And now he's waiting)
There won't be any negotiating

He's got nothing to lose
He's been beaten, he's been bruised
He ain't taking anymore of your abuse!


He's had enough of their institutions
and all the rules he was told to obey (go!)
They offered him no solutions
so he hit the street before they put him away (go!)

In a deprogramming youth care center
to rid him of his insubordinate ways
"You know that boy ain't right,"
is what you hear his parents say



Down on the world, down on his luck
he's got nothing to lose,
so he don't give a fuck (go!)
about shit taking risks in the street throwing bricks
he's got nothing to lose but you've drove him to (go!).

He's trying hard to forget the past
he's sleeping under the overpass
of i-95 just trying to survive
Just waiting for the moon to arise.
