lyrics

It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end

First things first you'll be seeing a trend
Start with the background it leads to the end
Another youth story it's about to unfold
But this time, this one's closer to home
Born with bad intentions or just malicious purpose
Alone and growing up almost felt I was a burden
You had a short fuse here I am a short circuit
We all have flaws and I know nobody's perfect
Trouble from the start, it shouldn't be a shocker
Glued to computers ever since I was a toddler
Tried to boot DOS on the blank screen then
Remember me stuffing floppies in our old IBM
You came home from work and reacted so quick
Floor covered with five-and-a-quarter-inch disks
Don't worry yet, the drives were never broken
Wait until I started with the phone line and modem


It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end

Now I'm online, tempted by the options
But I'm a teenager with plenty other problems
Chemical imbalance body going through the changes
Life in the questionable unset stages
My friends online they were hacking for fun
And provided acceptance, at home I had none
Inspired programmer who noticed a draw
Viruses, spammers, I coded it all
Began to make a name, everybody wants a copy
Compress it, encrypt it, and save it to a floppy
Slack space, swap, there were more crazy tricks
I was serving up warez on a 486
Kept it all a secret, none if it pronounced
Then the ISP called and suspended our account
Couldn't give it up, had to bypass restrictions
Yes there is a substance but it's different from addiction

It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end

It's not looking good
I just keep screwing up
What am I doing?

My life was a wreck, almost burned to the ground
But the case was dismissed before the verdict was found
A new person now, look I turned it around
So if I made a change you can learn to be proud
Cause you got me through to high school, it wasn't a breeze
Six years in college and I finished my degrees
Shifted to the right track, kicked it into gear
Took the skills I developed and I made it a career
Average Joe Citizen, my record is clear
Benefits and wage, pay my taxes every year
I'm sorry that the gray hair will never be undone
But at least you can now just be happy for your son

It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
It's the beginning of the end
