Rich kids from Hutchie

Another rainy Glasgow day
And I'm stuck in this train
With the rich kids from Hutchie

Bound for work
With a heavy heart
And they're all mocking me
In uniforms so smart

Confident and cocky
With the world at their feet
I wonder if they pity
This man the world has beat?

Anger wells up inside
As high-pitched squeals 
Pollute the air
So many lives unburdened
It just isn't fair

But this fury is really envy,
Mourning for a youth lost
I'd swap places in an instant
Even with the sullen goths

For there's no greater freedom
Than not knowing what's ahead
Memories of an office wall
Won't linger when you're dead

    Yes, loved this too. No freedom like youth, and not knowing what lies ahead. Very well expressed. Really captured your experience and feelings so well. Love, Shar
