Commissioned by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston to provide a song for the 10 year anniversary of their Teen Council program.

lyrics

High school was when I first came through
Teen Council, CAMH, I thank you
Now there's nothing that I can't do
Cause you taught me how to use every dang tool
Possible, now I make things optimal for the optical
I'm hopped up on some Mountain Dew
And I'm up all night like a hospital
Got four shows going on next month
And I gotta work on all them at once
Got a fashion show, it's not a hassle though to handle clothes
And I get food to munch
I didn't have to pay for lunch
At the CAMH I never have to pay for much
I'm gettin' paid and stuff for months and months
For having fun, getting work done, I'm coming up, son

Seen faces that I never thought I'd ever know
Been places that I never thought I'd ever go
I love it so
Won't let it go
Teen Council

Mayne, fool, who knew colored pencils and stencils
Could get me into school, university, jobs
Well, it works for me
Don't you know? I love my life
Since I been at the CAMH things feel alright
Showing films at the Fine Arts [Museum], hanging at Menil Park
Instilled in my heart is this art
Getting paid more than minimum wage
At the end of the day I'm feeling I made
A change, a difference, all with good friends
I went the distance and got it in
At the battle of the bands a rapper man
Threw a drum through a window and cut a girl hand
But even when things don't go as planned
We make it happenin' and win

Seen faces that I never thought I'd ever know
Been places that I never thought I'd ever go
I love it so
Won't let it go
Teen Council
