Let me take you into my world
Let me show you about my generation
See, we’re seen as little boys and girls
Just a disgraceful abomination
We never get no say
So I’m speaking out, to defend our name

Well I’m only a teen
But I’m not just a teen
And I’m tired of the way I’m treated
Gonna find my way to freedom
(Problem with that, you gotta problem with that)
Well listen up, ‘cause I know I gotta choice
I’m gonna damn well make it
I know I gotta voice
I’m gonna damn well use it

What will it take to make my voice heard?
What will it take to use my own words?
To prove I’m more than just a teen
Isn't it true that we’re all equal?
Why is it then our fun’s illegal?
Why am I seen as just a teen?

You’ll never know the things I could do
Just let me, I could be someone
Don’t judge me, as I don’t judge you
Don’t bitch at me just because I’m young
Either give me a chance to be myself
Or fuck off, ‘cause I don’t need your help

Well I'm only a teen, but I'm not just a teen
And I'm tired of the way I'm treated
Gonna find my way to freedom
(Problem with that, you gotta problem with that)
Well listen up, 'cause I know I gotta choice
I'm gonna damn well make it
I know I gotta voice
I'm gonna damn well use it

What will it take to make my voice heard?
What will it take to use my own words?
To prove I'm more than just a teen
Isn't it true that we're all equal?
Why is it then our fun's illegal?
Why am I seen as just a teen?

You can try but we won't be silenced
And nothing you can do is gonna change us
You call us twisted, you call us violent
Dysfunctional, but guess who raised us?!
Mom and dads that hate each other
We’re the ones that have to suffer
Abusive fathers who need in prison
Neglecting moms who’d rather see their boyfriend
Alcoholics, single moms
So you see, you’re also wrong
Yet we’re the ones who get the blame
For your actions, for our pain
We’re told that we’ve got freedom
But you vote on how we’re treated
DEMOCRACY MY ASS!

What will it take to make my voice heard?
What will it take to use my own words?
To prove I'm more than just a teen
Isn't it true that we're all equal?
Why is it then our fun's illegal?
Why am I seen as just a teen?

What will it take to make my voice heard?
What will it take to use my own words?
To prove I'm more than just a teen
Isn't it true that we're all equal?
Why is it then our fun's illegal?
Why am I seen as just a teen?

You can try, but we won't be silenced...
