the idea behind this song was "something happened on the way to better," as in recovering into a normal person. the "something happened" would have been all those porno stores, the philly "gay live network," a life needing friendship and human relations but having them last for an afternoon. or a night.

by the way, "t.b.i." is "traumatic brain injury"

something happened on the way to manhood

i had a life that mattered once,
but you don't know who you are in high school and
i had my head go hit the ground
and since my car crash, how many times have i said i'm sorry
(my bended mind)
i'm so sorry

how can something that should have passed, last?
how can one thing that strifes last so long
well, i should know, i have had all these doctors
tell me what i have
and how many times have they mentioned scarring
(scars of the mind)

and i know i have one bent, damaged mind
cuz i'm no teen, i'm high school night-dreamin'
i've had my scarring with a t.b.i.
maturity's not bequeathing me

i'm always lost as someone grown-up
cuz something happened on the way to manhood
i knocked the road and bleeded from my head, so
since my hard car-crash, how many times have i said i'm sorry
(impress no minds)
yes i'm sorry (i'm blind)

and i know i have one bent, damaged mind
cuz i'm no teen, i'm high school night-dreamin'
i've had my scarring with a t.b.i.
maturity's not bequeathed me

i have one bent, damaged mind
cuz i'm no teen and high school is over
i've had my scarring with a t.b.i.
i'm all sixteen, get me older

they say the blast when it hit impedes mind-growth
and i believe it
relating to adults, in me i see a youth
the shows i like have the teens in

i had a life that mattered once,
but you don't know who you are in high school, and
i had my head go hit the ground
in my traumaed past, how many times have i said i'm sorry
(my bended mind)
i'm so sorry (blind mind)

and i know i have one bent, damaged mind
cuz i'm no teen, i'm high school night-dreamin'
i've had my scarring with a t.b.i.
maturity's not bequeathed me

i have one bent, damaged mind
cuz i'm no teen in high school, i'm older
i've had my scarring with a t.b.i.
almost forty, see the teen in me
