lyrics

well the authorities called me up
and said "you may well end up in prison."
i said "i may well,
but you know i'll run away before then."
they said "you know we'll catch you."
I said "nah, you wouldn't know where to start.
you may well put in prison,
but you'll won't ever touch my heart."

they say that kids my age think they're invincible.
well that seems foolish but i still know i'll never die,
and it seems to be invincible all you gotta do is stay alive.
and i can do that on my own.
stay out of the conversation

because your laws mean shit to me.
they're just arbitrary guidelines and absolutist ideology.
and it seems to me when you're the ones
out killing in the street,
you've got no right to tell me
what to do if i want to be free.
because i'm not your property.
nah, i belong to me.

they say my generation don't stand up
for what we believe in.
i think its all cause we've been told just what to do
right from the start.
"don't break the guidelines given believe in television."
but we still know what we believe
when it comes pouring out our hearts.
