Lyrics:
I stood stone-like at midnight suspended in my
masquerade
I combed my hair till it was just right and
commanded the night brigade
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I
walked on a crooked crutch
I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came
out with my soul untouched
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when
they said "Sit down" I stood up.
Ooh-ooh growin' up

The flag of piracy flew from my mast, my sails were
set wing to wing
I had a jukebox graduate for first mate, she couldn't
sail but she sure could sing,
I pushed B-52 and bombed `em with the blues with
my gear set stubborn on standing
I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school,
never once gave thought to landing,
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when
they said "Come down" I threw up
Ooh-ooh growin' up

I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere and
you know it's really hard to hold your breath.
I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared, I
was the cosmic kid in full costume dress
Well, my feet they finally took root in the earth but I
got me a nice little place in the stars
And I swear I found the key to the universe in the
engine of an old parked car
I hid in the mother breast of the crowd but when
they said "Pull down" I pulled up
Ooh-ooh growin' up. Ooh-ooh growin' up
