Wasted Youth

I’m back, will blog properly later but have just been listening to Meatloaf in the car and was very struck by the lyrics! I’ve blogged before on maturation and that teenagers are trying to find their way in a world where the adults aren’t sure of the way themselves. Listening to this at volume is more fun though!
Everything louder than everything else
They got a file on me that’s a mile long
And they say that they’ve got all of the proof
That I’m just another case of arrested development
I’m just another wasted youth
They say that I’m in need of some radical discipline
They say I gotta face the truth
That I’m just another case of arrested development
I’m just another wasted youth
They say I’m wild and I’m reckless
I should be acting my age
I’m an impressionable child
In a tulmultuous world
And they say I’m at a difficult stage
But it seems to me to the contrary
Of all the crap they’re gonna put on the page
That a wasted youth is better by far
Then a wise and productive old age
