Suburban Sham

Surburban Sham

No brainwash
No uniform
No endless nine to five
No middle class hell
No office jail cell
Gotta fight to keep alive

Don't need no rules
Don't need no laws
Don't want to be told what to think
Don't need a tie
Or some capitalist lie
I ain't some missing link

I don't wanna fight
For the government
In some stupid, meaningless war
Ain't gonna die
Without knowing why
Are countries worth dying for?

Don't want no part
In democracy
In electing some corrupt government
Don't wanna be lost by the wayside
Can you tell me which way the revolution went?

Ain't gonna follow no leaders
Down into obscurity
Ain't gonna be lost in this landslide
Of dreamless mediocrity

I don't care if they call me a madman
A fool with a misguided cause
Never been part of their average
I'm the statistic that won't fit on the page

You can call me an anarchist
You can call me a jerk
You can say that my head must be light
But I'll never listen
To some crooked politician
Who can't get his priorities right

Not going to be nice
With some quiet surburban wife
These conformist shoes don't fit right
Don't wanna be quiet
Gonna raise me a riot
Ain't gonna give up my fight

If that's the way it's gotta be
If the big guy's always gonna win
I'll ring my bell and give 'em hell
I ain't ever gonna give in

No brainwash
No uniform
No endless nine to five
No middle class hell
No office jail cell
Gotta fight to keep alive
