Lyrics
Cheapskate on the hill
A thrill seeker making deals
Sugar city urchin wasting time
Town of lunatics
Begging for another fix
Turning tricks for speedballs
One more night

Making your rounds once again
Turning up empty handed
Bumming a ride
Burning daylight
Last up at dawn... tight wad hill

Drugstore hooligan
Another white trash mannequin
On display to rot up on the hill
Living out a lie
But having the time of his life
Hating every minute of his existance

Making your rounds once again
Turning up empty handed
Bumming a ride
Burning daylight
Last up at dawn... tight wad hill

Making your rounds once again
Turning up empty handed
Bumming a ride
Burning daylight
Last up at dawn... tight wad hill
Song Meaning
This is a nod to Billie's teenage of years of hanging out on a hill near John Swett High School. But rather than it being a rose-tinted look back on a dreamy teenage hang out, it talks of a "city of urchins" and living life to "rot up on the hill." It mirrors the angst found throughout the rest of Insomniac.
