WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I HAD DREAMS TO SPARE.
EVERYDAY WAS ANOTHER CHANCE TO SOMEHOW GET THERE.
GROWING UP IN UTAH WAS VERY HARD FOR ME.
HOW CAN YOU HAVE HEROES WITHOUT MTV

Uncle Harvey
HIS PARENTS WERE STRICT AND HATED ROCK AND ROLL
SPENT TOO MUCH TIME IN CHURCH AND THE SERMONS TOOK THEIR TOLL.
HE HAD NO MUSIC TO SET HIS SOUL ON FIRE
ALL HE EVER HEARD WAS THE MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR.

everyone
MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR

Uncle Harvey
SO HIS ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS COULD NEVER START
AND ALL HE HAD LEFT WAS BIG HAIR AND A BROKEN HEART.

Heinrich
ONE DAY AT SCHOOL A NEW KID CAME UP TO ME
HE HAD SOMETHING THAT WOULD SET ME FREE.
IT WASN'T POT OR COKE OR LUDES OR CRACK.
IT WAS HIS DAD'S BLACK SABBATH ALBUM ON 8 TRACK.

Uncle Harvey
HE RAN HOME AND THOUGHTS RACED THROUGH HIS MIND
COULD THIS BE THE DEVIL COMING UP FROM BEHIND.
WOULD THIS MUSIC TURN HIM INTO A HOMICIDAL KILLER
I HEARD KIDS TURNED GAY FROM LISTENING TO "THRILLER".

everyone
LISTENING TO "THRILLER".

Uncle Harvey
SO HIS ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS COULD NEVER START
AND ALL HE HAD LEFT WAS BIG HAIR AND A BROKEN HEART.

HE POPPED THE TAPE INTO HIS STEREO
HE PUT HIS HEADPHONES ON.
THE SOUNDS RIPPED THROUGH HIS BRAIN
AND THEN HE WAS GONE.

THE EVIL SPOKE TO HIM
AND HE WAS IT'S PAWN.
HE STOLE HIS DADDY'S CAR
DID DONUTS ON THE LAWN.

HE WAS A CRAZED THRILL-SEEKER WITH NO REMORSE
HE SKIPPED SEVERAL CLASSES IN HIS DRIVER'S ED COURSE.
HE OVERFED THE DOG HE'D RAISED FROM A PUP
HIS MOMMA SAID

women
IT MUST BE THE WORK OF SATAN AND THE GROUND WILL SWALLOW HIM UP.
everyone
IT MUST BE THE WORK OF SATAN AND THE GROUND WILL SWALLOW HIM UP.

Heinrich
I WAS EVIL!
everyone
EVIL!
Heinrich
EVIL!
everyone
EVIL!
Heinrich
EVIL!
everyone
EVIL!

Heinrich
SO MY ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS WERE BLOWN APART
AND ALL I HAD LEFT WAS
everyone
BIG HAIR, AND A BROKEN HEART.
