Virginities (Yeehaw Junction) (click for MP3 file)

I was a boy,
And it was time for takin’ chances,
It was time for growin’ up.

I got a girl,
And it was true love everlastin’,
Up until she broke it off.

It would not have occurred to me
From hearing teenage history
That you could lose virginity
Again and again!

I got a job.
The deal was: work an honest day,
And in return, a living wage.
I was a fool.
I gotta bust my ass around the clock,
And still live like a slave.

It would not have occurred to me
From hearing teenage history
That you could lose virginity
Again and again!

I thought by now I would finally understand it,
Or at the least, that I would no longer care.
I can’t believe I can still feel this frustration.
I can’t believe I could so completely fail.

And what’s ahead of me:
A life exactly like this,
Up until the day I close my eyes.
As Death deflowers me,
Can I at least console myself
That it’s the final time?

Or will it not occur to me
From seeing my own history
That I have lost virginity
Again and again?

I thought by now I would finally understand it,
Or at the least, that I would no longer care.
I can’t believe I can still feel this frustration.
I can’t believe I could so completely fail.
We had only just learned this song before our tour, and were still working it out the day before we set out in January 2003.
