Growing up, all alone.
A rundown neighborhood, foster homes.
I had to work for what was mine.
Handing out beatdowns and committing crime.
I wanna know,
how far would you go
to protect the edge, would you take THE PLEDGE?
My little cousin, age 13,
caught her with a cigarette, I broke her fucking knees.
Had a teacher try to change my ways,
I beat his ass just the fucking same.
Raised as an orphan, no hope to pull through,
'til I was busting heads with the CROWBAR CREW...
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE
TO THE STRAIGHT EDGE
TO NEVER FALTER
THIS IS MY PLEDGE
WE STAND FOR JUSTICE
WE STAND FOR MIGHT
UNDER THE X
STRAIGHT EDGE FOR LIFE.
