Do you miss walking down Geary Street with your mom going to buy some Upper Playground t-shirts? We don't even get street cred for wearing that shit no more. Taking your morning piss at the Muni bus stop cause your roommate's passed out in the shower again.

Do you sit tonguing the root pulled fresh to make room for your new acrylic front tooth, wishing you could be at a third grade barbecue? You get hives from sporting short shorts in unkempt grass, feel bad about missing your last French class, and key every car with a personalized license plate, well I do.

Another calcium deposit, another sign that I should take care of myself. I'll be honest man, my dreams ain't what they used to be.

So after we have practice, I'll go sit up in the attic and rehearse the lines I've claimed as mine: Life is over when we say it is.
