Skid Row – Youth Gone Wild lyrics

Since I was born they couldn't hold me down
Another misfit kid, another burned-out town

I Never played by the rules and I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere

I look and see it's not only me
So many others have stood where I stand
We are the young so raise your hands

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

Boss screamin' in my ear about who I'm supposed to be
Get a 3-piece Wall Street smile and son you'll look just like me

I said "Hey man, there's something that you oughta know.
I tell ya Park Avenue leads to Skid Row. "

I look and see it's not only me
We're standin' tall ain't never a doubt
We are the young, so shout it out

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild
We are the youth gone wild

    This is another '80s song about how that generation of kids were so misunderstood. Told what to wear, how to look, what to say. This song is about fighting that; go wild and do what you want. This song reminds me of the late '60s a lot, not with the sound but with the lyrics. Like the whole Helter Skelter time period; take back your life period. This generation, the late '80s, were the "problem child," they were considered punks because they fought a lot of the congressional thinking. Them, and the '60s kids, are the reason our generation can act the way we do. Why we can stand up to teachers and our parents without getting beaten. Why we can fight for what we think is right with less consequence. They broke that barrier for us, and how do we repay them? By not giving a damn about any of it.
