Skater’s Life
Everyday it’s not the same
I’m not living a life that’s lame
I’ve always got something to do
And I don’t care if it bothers you
Got me my skate and I’m on my way
Got to create something new today
Baggy t shirt and shredded jeans
I’m not a victim of the regular scene

And I’m living a skater’s life
And I’m living a skater’s life

To a halfpipe or a city street
This is where all the skaters meet
Frontside, backside or contorted air
Handplant, curbgrind, sessions blare
It’s a life that most can’t see
I got no rules controlling me
People say we get way outta hand
Those fuckin’ idiots just don’t understand

And I’m living a skater’s life
And I’m living a skater’s life

    Remember when they played CB’s and we made fun of them for their long hair?

    Glad to see Beyond Possession getting some love on DC. Along side of SNFU, Beyond Possession holds a near and dear place in my heart. Being a skateboarder from the Canadian prairies, you had to love Beyond Possession. I was fortunate to see them a bunch of times… and they always delivered. One specific show comes to mind. We drove down to Calgary to see them play with SNFU in a sort of battle of the prairie skate rock legends. This would have been late ’80s. Both bands were in their prime, and there was some healthy comradery and competition. Plus, the local skate scenes were well represented with a lot of the local rippers from both cities in attendance. Both bands destroyed. After the show, a great street session was always had on the smooth streets of Calgary. Another time, BP opened up for Suicidal. Not good for Suicidal, as they had all sorts of trouble following the insanity that was BP live. Attending their Calgary reunion show was one of the most fun shows I have ever seen. Old Calgary skate heads came home for the extravaganza and the place was packed to the gills. Such a good vibe and almost as fun as early BP shows. Every day is not the same, and I won’t live a life that’s lame…
    Thanks DC

    Rad story Dave!!!! Just got back from Montreal and saw some kids skating some stairs where the snow was shoveled. Dedication. Reminded me of when I was a kid back in Ohio.
