Other side

October 19, 2011
I’d prefer the other side of the tracks
The side where they fend for themselves
Where freedom is alcohol and they all want a taste
Where the hopeless roam and they solve problems with knifes and gun powder
The side of the boys who will break my heart
And strangers will stab my spleen into my soul
Where the gangs hang out and the train tracks are the boundary line
I want to fall in love with a tattooed boy who wants nothing to do with me
I want the wrong side of the train tracks
