    Some sentences from a song

    Hello!

    Can someone help me to clarify the meaning of the some song lyrics parts?

    Here's the lirycs: Up On The Hill Lyrics - Fun Lovin' Criminals

    1) while they taking their lump
    what it means?

    2) Had a mind of my own like west gave to freddy
    As freddy got clipped, man, so did my youth
    Spending nights with my rights, knocked out my tooth

    all the words seems familiar )) but totally not sure what it's all about

    3) A shot clock is dropped,
    what it means?

    4) Live a life of your dreams,like boz did lido
    not sure what BOZ DID LIDO is

    Thanks for helping!

    Не "West", а "Wes". Wes Craven - режиссер, снявший "Кошмар на улице Вязов", ну а Freddy, понятное дело, Freddy Krueger.

    A shot clock is dropped, choose when you choose
    Могу только догадываться. "Shot clock" называют счетчик времени до конца атаки в баскетболе. И фраза может значить, что этот счетчик остановился (или сброшен) и теперь у тебя есть время, чтобы сделать выбор.

    First - thank you very much for attention to my request! The things become much clearer )

    but i still can't catch a "message" of an author in these 2 parts - about Boz Scaggs and especially about Freddy. What is the meaning or those metaphors? Maybe someone will be able to clarify it...
