about

Tried college for a bit. Met a kid named Dennis.

lyrics

17 and just a kid
I was honestly indifferent, I just went because my brother did
But, I don't think that it's for me
At least with you I've found a kindred soul who don't mind crushin' 40's
Just myself- that's all I wanna be
Pull down the shade, there's nothin' there that I would care to see

And my head is killing me.

So you offered me a percocet
And I wasn't quite sober yet
So I said "Fine, I won't decline
it might just help to ease my mind
And speaking of, I'm thinking more and more
'What the hell am I here for?'
Dennis do you ever feel that way?
And let's not go to class today."

So much for a clean slate
They find my personality is difficult to venerate
But, they don't know a thing about me, and I
can't have conversations with these trust fund dicks from Suffolk County
I'm thinking coming here was a mistake
An' if I left well how much difference could it really make?

Man, it hurts to be awake.

So you offered me a percocet
And I wasn't quite sober yet
So I said "Fine, I won't decline
it might just help to ease my mind
And speaking of, I'm thinking more and more
'What the hell am I here for?'
Dennis do you ever get that way?
And I don't wanna go to class today."

So I dragged on a cigarette
You asked what had me so upset
"Kid, I hate to see ya look so down."
Well Dennis, between you and me
Given the opportunity
I'd like to burn this whole place to the
ground.
