Lyrics

Born in the back seat of a stretch limousine
Your father was a kick-ass drunk and rattlesnake mean
He beat your momma just because he could
He liked to hurt you and you knew he always would
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest scenes left lying on the cutting room floor
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest dreams left lying on the cutting room floor
You’re just a self-centered arrogant prick
That’s what you were bred to be
Silver spoon in your mouth and a switchblade ready to go
You ran into trouble with anybody who ever told you no
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest scenes left lying on the cutting room floor
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest dreams left lying on the casting couch floor
They left you on the tarmac in the pouring rain
What do you think they were trying to say?
You kept a secret list of the good and the bad
It was good to be good and it was bad to be bad
And when you got hurt it made you feel mad
It made you feel good to hurt back ten times as bad
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest scenes left lying on the cutting room floor
We’re all just damaged goods
The greatest dreams left lying on the juvie hall floor
They left you on the tarmac in the pouring rain
What do you think they were trying to say?
Faceless voices in the air
Nameless numbers they don’t care
