I came up with this after spending a whole afternoon listening to old Britpop CDs; Oasis and Blur obviously, but also Supergrass, Elastica, Suede, Pulp etc. I was trying to get a similar feel. It's a bit different to my usual dark, heavy stuff but I thought I did OK.

Standing on the footpath, loitering
We look like we're losers but we got big dreams
One day when we all feel cool enough
We're gonna sneak into R movies and love the screams

Some say we got no future at all
Spending the rest of our lives hanging by the crackshack
To us it's more than just a house
It's the vault where all our proudest memories are stacked

Welcome to the crackshack, welcome to the crackshack
This is where we come before school
We smoke a joint
And sit around
And act like we're super cool
Welcome to the crackshack, welcome to the crackshack
This is where we spend our afternoon
We go back home
At crack of dusk
But we will be back soon

Who gives a f*ck about the future
We live for the now and we got all that we need
Stand on the corner, huff magic dust
Keeping our idyllic childhoods away from adult greed

Our haters tell us that we're losers
A pack of nerds on drugs who happen to be lonely
I don't know about youse
But I don't need no one else
Cause you got me to look after you
And I got you to look after me

Welcome to the crackshack, welcome to the crackshack
This is where we come before school
We smoke a joint
And sit around
And act like we're super cool
Welcome to the crackshack, welcome to the crackshack
This is where we spend our afternoon
We go back home
At crack of dusk
But we will be back soon

One day we wake and the crackshack's gone
The day before, whitey made the first fifteen
The Asian threw an epic sweet sixteen
And n!gg@ boy, he got himself a fine new girl
All of our memories, they went up in smoke
All our dreams, they couldn't help but die
As it turns out, it was just a lie
The legend of the crackshack is lost to the world

Welcome to where the crackshack was, kids
This is where we hung before school
We would smoke joints
And sit around
And act like we were cool
Welcome to where the crackshack once stood
This is where we wasted afternoons
One day we went home
As dusk shone down
And we would never be back soon.

EDIT: Alittle extra context if it helps; no, the crackshack isn't a drug house, it's an old abandoned house where me and my old mates used to go hang out and do the sorta sh*t I'm talking about.

can see where you are coming from with this,thought the two verses between our haters and i got you to look after me got a bit sort of rambly but that could be just me or somthing that happens often with this sort of work the longer they get the more it loses form.
I know if I write somthing long i seem to end up looking to get to the end rather than flowing until it ends.
Other than that its got elements of most peoples lives at one time or another.
