I must've started life with a checklist
I took the rules and broke 'em in two
I must've started life with a checklist
And the first was not giving in like you

You're burned out
Asking which half is me

You don't have to dress up
It's not a fucking fashion show
You don't have to kiss up
I'm never going to go that low

My life's my book
It is the story of what I write

My life's mine
And no one said you could change what I write

My life
Too late, too soon
My life
Too late for you

    General CommentNon conformity, being yourself, not doing things to please anyone but yourself, doing whatever the hell you want. This song is my fucking anthem.

    General CommentThis song is basically amazing.

    "You don't have to dress up
    It's not a fucking fashion show"

    Every time I see Big D, and I see annoying scenester fans that all look the same singing along with this song, I laugh. Really hard.
