The Lyrics

This is a tale about what happens when you try to impress your friends by doing stunts on MTV's "Jackass".
I saw this cool stunt on Jackass MTV.
I thought it was a cinch it looked so easy.
Now I'm in, Now I'm in
Traction, traction, traction, traction
Rode a wrecking ball
'Cause friends were pushing me
Now I'm recognized for my stupidity.

"Fire, fire, fire, fire"
They yelled as they lit me
Higher, higher, higher, higher
I thought I was dead, man
And that's why
Everybody laughs for I'm in traction
I really couldn't blame them for their reaction.
And now my legs and insides bleed
Years of rehab guaranteed
And everybody wants to keep me in traction.

Oh, I was suicidal 'cause he was my rival.
He told everyone that I'd break my knees
Oh there were times that I would leave 'em behind
I'm just another victim of realit-TV.

"Fire, fire, fire, fire"
They yelled as they lit me
Higher, higher, higher, higher
I thought I was dead, man
And that's why
Everybody laughs for I'm in traction
I really couldn't blame them for their reaction.
And now my legs and insides bleed
Years of rehab guaranteed
And everybody wants to keep me in traction.

Now I'm in, now I'm in traction.

Everybody laughs, at my body cast
Everybody laughs, at my body cast

GUITAR SOLO

Everybody laughs for I'm in traction
I really couldn't blame them for their reaction.
And now my legs and insides bleed
Years of rehab guaranteed
And... ev...ery...bo...dy... wants... to... keep me in....
TRACTION! TRACTion, TRAction, traction...tra...
The boy in this not -so- true story survived, but he now walks in a straddling position.
