Got your own interpretation of these lyrics? Scroll down and share it!

It could happen to you,
A defect from the wasted outskirts of Los Angeles
With a crumpled-up pass for the RTD
And no authority or trajectory
On the brink of insanity.

You'd better believe it,
Because it's written all over your face
Just a neighborhood reject,
Out of step and out of place,
You'd better believe it.

Would you ever have thought
Persistence could prevail
Against the almost
Unbearable weight of the system?
With nothing better to do,
And no one else who you can look up to.

You'd better believe it
Because it's written all over your face
A political defect,
Out of step and out of place,
You'd better believe it.

And the future is bright
When ideas run astray
So turn out the light,
A punk can't have a say,
Sometimes desire is all that's there
Who said life was fair?
