Born in the southern land
Where a man is a man
Don't remember too much
Warm momma
Cold touch
Post-war baby boom
Fifty kids in one room
All white
Future bright
But living in a womb

Got a TV receiver
Jerry Mathers is the Beaver
No blacks
No queers
No sex
Mouseketeers

Daddy kept moving round
I can't settle down
Always….
The lost new kid in town

Manlicher lock and loaded
JFK's head exploded
Dark figure
At the fence
End of my innocence
Hormones hit me
Chew up
Spit me
Get stoned
Get plastered
Always was a moody bastard

Guitar fool
Kicked out of high school
Joined a band
Vietnam
Momma said "kill the man"
Daddy gets real sick
Too intense I can't kick it
Buy myself a ticket to the U.S.A.

Oh my god
It's my life
What am I doing kicking up the foundations
That's right
My life
Better start looking at my destination

Hollywood sex rat
Been there done that
Jaded afraid I'd
Never get it a turn at bat
Last in a long line
Finally hit the big time
Goldmine
Feeding time
Money, fame
I get mine

Use it
Abuse it
Daddy's dies
I lose it
Get a wife
Get a son
Beget another one

My head said “God’s dead”
Motorcycle
Body shred
Big life crisis rears its ugly head

Oh my god
It's my life
What am I doing kicking up the foundations
That's right
My life
Better start looking at my destination

Well, Prozac
Lithium
Could never get enough of 'em
Last wills
Shrinks bills
Sleeping pills
Sex kills
Edge of sanity
My infidelity
Looking in the mirror and thinking how it use to be

Don't like the skin I'm in
Caught in a tailspin
Honest to God vision
Spiritual transmission
Climb aboard the life raft
Looking back I have to laugh
Take a breath
Don't know if I'm ready for the second half

Oh my god
It's my life
What am I doing kicking up the foundations
That's right
My life
Better start looking at my destination

My life
My depression
My sin
My confession
My curse
My obsession
My school
My lesson

That's right
My life
My depression
That's right
My life
My depression
