A stanza that summarizes the teenage me

From Brian Fallon, of The Gaslight Anthem, in the song, "Boxer," from the upcoming (this Tuesday, and yes, I've preordered it and it's on its way to me) CD, American Slang.

Took it all gracefully on the chin,
knowing the beatings had to someday end.
You found the bandages inside the pen
and the stitches on the radio.
Oh, hell, yeah. Still do.
