    Stormin' through the party like my name was El Niño
    When I'm hangin' out drinkin' in the back of an El Camino
    As a kid, was a skid, and no one knew me by name
    Trashed my own house party 'cause nobody came
    Well, I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school
    Never goin', never showin' up when we had to
    Attention that we crave
    Don't tell us to behave
    I'm sick of always hearin' "Act your age"
    I don't wanna waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down
    Because you don't know us at all, we laugh when old people fall
    But what would you expect with a conscience so small?
    Heavy metal and mullets, it's how we were raised
    Maiden and Priest were the gods that we praised
    'Cause we like havin' fun at other people's expense, and
    Cuttin' people down is just a minor offense, then
    It's none of your concern
    I guess I'll never learn
    I'm sick of being told to wait my turn
    I don't wanna waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down
    Don't count on me
    To let you know when
    Don't count on me
    I'll do it again
    Don't count on me
    It's the point you're missin'
    Don't count on me
    'Cause I'm not listenin'
    Well, I'm a no-goodnick lower middle class brat
    Back-pack and I don't give a shit about nothin'
    You be standin' on the corner talkin' all that kufuffin
    But you don't make sense from all the gas you be huffin'
    'Cause if the egg don't stain, you'll be ringin' off the hook
    You're on the hit list, wanted in the telephone book
    I like songs with distortion
    To drink in proportion
    The doctor said my mom should've had an abortion
    I don't wanna waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down
    Casualty of society
    (Waste my time with them)
    Victim of your conformity and back down



    I immediately thought of this

    When you allow the world to dictate who you are you have lost your self


    That’s how cults get ahold of peoples minds

    Individuals reach a point of being nothing but a vessel for the dictates of others

    I love singing those lyrics with these young Canadian men as they spend their time making music that satisfies their love of Life


    Punk/new wave was like a breath of fresh air during the Bush lies


    They refused to wear that garment too tight

    The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.
    Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window.
    “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.
    “Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room …. just wait.”
    “That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.”
    She went on to explain, “Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.”
    And with a smile, she said: “Remember the five simple rules to be happy: 1. Free your heart from hatred. 2. Free your mind from worries. 3. Live simply. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less.

    You wear your trump garments so tight they have fused into your skin and brain


    You always think It's of your concern


    You always learn the lies your ordered to learn



    You always wait your turn when ordered to


    You always waste your time with the ordered lies

    You Become another casualty of society


    You always fall in line



    You always become another victim of conformity


    You never ask your masters to back down



    Your master can always count on you



    You always let your masters know when



    Your masters can always count on you


    You never question once let alone do it again



    Your masters can always count on you



    You never question your masters so there is no point they are missin'



    Your master can always count on you



    'Cause You are always listenin'

    I think that is part of it


    Wearing the woes of the world too heavy will kill you and every ounce of your joy
