The fourth of thirteen songs on my Concept Album, "Albion Moonlight and the Sea of Troubles". (8)
i remember when the riot got real quiet
and angus and his brother took a back seat on the shelf.
and KJET played joey and dee dee, boy tumbled for me,
by the mirror in the bathroom, that’s where i found myself.
and i admit i loved those young guns, a karma chameleon,
when you’re only a lad, you need a little tenderness.
with paint around my eyes and a shaved head, some wanted me dead,
so i went up the junction to the decline of the west.
“kid what are you a fag? ‘cause you ain't tough.
you must be gay to listen to that stuff
and you think wearing pink gives you a place where you fit in,
but this town’s way too small, can’t you see?
you ain't what coach wants you to be,
sing your pretty little songs, if it gives you so much joy,
but we’ll make sure it hurts to be a hated choir boy,
we’ll make sure it hurts to be a hated choir boy”.
with new old friends like major tom and ziggy played it left hand,
changes always came and no one ever was to blame.
our immunity was laughter, in late discoveries after
and those of us you spit on just go further in the game.
and how those sisters gave me mercy, unearthly, just like percey,
when bela was undead and sanctuary was for sale.
in the dark and misty moonlight, with she’s in parties all night,
i went down fascination street and i wore a heavy veil.
“kid what are you a corpse, are you on “A”?
around the world in just one day.
and you think wearing black gives you a place where you fit in.
this city is so small, can’t you see?
you ain't what mom wants you to be.
forever young? a wasted life on poetry and chasing joy.
do you like how it hurts to be a hated choir boy,
do you like how it hurts to be a hated choir boy?
and at last people are just people. it was foreseeable
that i’d immortalize you, ‘cause everyday i write the book.
and i have also been a tough creep, but dirty deeds are dirt cheap
and either way they judge you based on how they think you look.
so, hey, what am i now? it’s no concern of yours. if anything, i’ve sorely learned,
unless you’re true to you, there ‘aint no place where you’ll fit in.
this world is so small, can’t you see?
you’ll always be what you will be.
you can’t go home expecting anyone to validate your joy.
do you remember me, i was a hated choir boy,
do you remember me i was a hated choir boy...?
waa, waa, waa, waa, waa...
