Growing Up a Nerd
I grew up on purple people eaters
And teenage meetings in the sky
Where we fought on angels wings
To see the posh kids die.
We wore blue jeans and doc martens
We lived to see our best friends fall
If only we’d walked over to them
Or even tried to crawl.
All I know is that we can’t stop
Battle blues and all seems lost
Parents lose their children too
We can never know the cost.
I’m just one more nerd who lost
Himself in fanciful dragon games
Where I could be the monster and
Eat the posh kids in their shame.
