This culture tied to me
Is too much for me
Tied to me
This culture is too cold for me
These malls are too crowded, way too crowded for me

Cuz I don't want to be (a face in the crowd)
The way I used to be (same old sound)
I want to twist and shout
I want to write about
I want to speak aloud

Cuz I don't want to be (a face in the crowd)
The way I used to be (same old sound)
I want to twist and shout
I want to learn about
I want to speak aloud

This future tied to me
Is too much for me (oh no, oh no no no...)
Tied to me
This future is too cold for me (oh no, oh no no no...)
This armpit of oil is too soiled for me

Time's just another wasted time
Time's just another wasted day

Time's just another wasted time (yeah)
Time's just another wasted day (yeah)

So you know
Time's just another wasted time (yeah)
Time's just another wasted day (yeah)

So you know
Time's just another wasted time (right)
Time's just another wasted day (right)

Now it's time, Now it's time
Cuz I don't want to be (a face in the crowd)
The way I used to be (same old sound)
I want to twist and shout
I want to write about
I want to speak aloud

Cuz I don't want to be (a face in the crowd)
The way I used to be (same old sound)
I want to twist and shout (a face in the crowd)
I want to learn about (same old sound)
I want to speak aloud (a face in the crowd)

    General CommentTo me this song means becoming your own person and not just wasting your time and being like everyone else.
