83 in a 65
In any event, I can't seem to stop listening to Avail, and there was this confluence as I was driving and thinking about all this, and listening to the stereo, and going too fast, and receiving my first speeding ticket in three years of commuting up and down the World's Most Beautiful Freeway. Because Avail hit upon a near-perfect understanding of teenage violence. It's spectacular in it's right-on-ness, even if the song was originally about meatheads who fight at shows.
Should've left that attitude back at home
Center of attention through tension
Begging for respect through the unsaid
Resorting to disruption when you hate something
Should have left that attitude back at home
Striving to dominate to feel safe
Showing your strength to the unknown
You probably won't quit when you hurt someone
What the hell are you fighting for?
I hope it's something you really believe in
Because someone got a fist in the face cause you're feeling weak
Now you're causing all these problems that nobody needs
You've got no good reason
Just an attitude
