Youth Gone Wild Lyrics

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

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

I look and see it's not only me
So many others have stood...

    Its about men going crazy in this life and there never being someone to talk to about any thing that a young man has to deal with growing up until he is a man and looking back he realizes his life as a youth he was wild. He never played by anyones rules but his own to survive everything, his boss, his family and people he loved and his friends. It was all wild inside of him not knowing what was come of his life ever, until he is a man and he is still that youth going wild in him. A problem child when your a kid,as man he is self- distructive. I remember the song and the life I was living when it came out it was what I interpretated as the front cover of the album. I wanted to know what these guys were singing about meant so I lived the songs as did all my friends at the time. They know who they are,they were at the parties too. We were all youths gone wild,some calmed down moved on. For myself it was a real world to exist in until the lines blurred and it became who I was to survive my growing world. All The Bands became therapeutic ways to understand my life.
