Can I graduate
Can I graduate
Can I look in faces that I meet
Can I get my punk ass off the street
I've been living on for so long
Can I graduate
To the bastard talking down to me
Your whipping boy calamity
Cross your fingers, I'm going to knock it all down
Can I graduate
Echo fading we can't let go
She goes walking by in slow mo'
Sell your heart out for a buck
Go on fade out before I get stuck
Talking to somebody like you
Do you live the days you go through
Will this song live on long after we do
Can I graduate
Can I look in faces that I meet
Can I get my punk ass off the street
Won't die on the vine I want to knock it all down
Can I graduate
Echo fading, candle blow
Did you flash out long ago
Cross my fingers, I don't know
Someone poked you down below
Can I graduate
Can I graduate
Can I graduate
Can I graduate
Can I graduate
Can I get my punk ass off the street
Can I look in faces that I meet
I'm not waiting here for you to die
Will this song live on long after we do

    People think this song is about graduating from highschool or something. That's ok, songs can have different meanings for everyone. Still, the song was written about heroin use. "Graduating" is a term that refers to shooting up and then making it through the first couple of minutes after shooting up without puking. Most people puke the first time they use heroin, its just a fact.
