lyrics

Your advertisements say to me
I should not smoke cigarettes
But I’m going to smoke them anyway
I don’t care what you say

Your propaganda tells me
I should not drink so much beer
But I’m going to drink it anyway
I’m going to live my own way

I don’t want to be the one stuck in a rut
Thinking about what I could have been
I watch everyone who is just like me
And realize I can never be one of them

I’m not going to set at home
Thinking about my self-destruction
No time to take stock
Of my self-destruction
I’m not going to be the one
Complaining about my self-destruction
I’m just going to live it up
Not worry about my self-destructive ways

Everyone keeps telling me I’m
Too old to go to the show
But I’m going to go anyway
I don’t care what they say

Everyone keeps telling me that I’m
Too old to jump and dance
But I’m going to dance anyway
I’m going to live my own way

I don’t want to be the one stuck in a rut
Thinking about what I could have been
I watch everyone who is just like me
And realize I can never be one of them

I’m not going to set at home
Thinking about my self-destruction
No time to take stock
Of my self-destruction
I’m not going to be the one
Complaining about my self-destruction
I’m just going to live it up
Not worry about my self-destructive ways

Everybody tells me what they say
Is for my own good
But I’ll decide what’s for my good
I don’t care what you say

Everyone keeps telling me
To settle down and be like us
But I don’t care if you’re too afraid
I’m going to live my own way

I don’t want to be the one stuck in a rut
Thinking about what I could have been
I watch everyone who is just like me
And realize I can never be one of them

I’m not going to set at home
Thinking about my self-destruction
No time to take stock
Of my self-destruction
I’m not going to be the one
Complaining about my self-destruction
I’m just going to live it up
Not worry about my self-destructive ways

Self-destruction
Self-destruction
Self-destruction
