Against All Authority – Nothing To Lose lyrics

He's running wild through the streets at night
But he's hiding in the shadows by the break of day
He's got a clip-on Spydarco knife
But it's just for keeping the wolves at bay
2 AM, fucked up again
He's living with the bottle cause he's living with the pain
Insane, poking veins he's standing in the rain
He's go nothing to lose and everything to gain
Unwanted, unforgiving
He's tired of fighting and he's tired of living here
Swigging bear with nothing to fear
He's got nothing to lose... so he's always winning.
He's suffocating - the pain can be excruciating
And liberating - it helps him forget the world he's hating
Now he's waiting - and there won't be any negotiating
He's got nothing to lose, he's been bloodied and he's been bruised
He ain't taking anymore abuse
He's had enough of theirs institutions
And all the rules he was told to obey
They offered no solutions
So he hit the street before they put him away
In a deprogramming youth care center
To rid him of his insubordinate ways
"You know that boy ain't right"
Is what you'll hear his parents say
Down on the world and down on his luck
He's got nothing to lose he don't give a fuck about shit
Takin' risks in the street throwing bricks
With nothing to lose... you drove him to this
Trying hard to forget the past
He's sleeping under the overpass
Of I-95 just trying to survive
Just waiting for the moon to arrive
