Everything must regulate
Maybe so, I need you!

Give me all the fixes the therapy,
I'm needing more and more

Advertise and specialize,
Just tell me what to do.

Confucious think you're up the shack,
They got you where they really want to.

Well, life is structured, everything you own has been manafactured,
you have no say,
Your progress here is guaranteed.

(Hopeless!) Just let me out of this fucking world, this is
(Hopeless!) Rot away in front your T.V., you're gonna be
(Helpless!) Do anything for yourself,
I'm trapped in your society!

You run your life, hey!, you're on a ride,
Hey, it's just like Disneyland!
You see the car, but you turn around,
And it's all been safely planned.

Regeneration is the game; Your nation will endure,
You freedom has been convienantly shacked,
So show it some damn respect!

Well, life is structured, everything you own has been manafactured,
you have no say,
Your progress here is guaranteed.

(Hopeless!) Just let me out of this fucking world, this is
(Hopeless!) Rot away in front your T.V., you're gonna be
(Helpless!) Do anything for yourself,
I'm trapped in your society.

    General CommentThese were transcribed from the best of my ability from the song.

    It's a short Studio demo released by The Offspring in 1987, under the name "Manic Subsidal"... needless to say, 3 years later, they recorded their first commercial album.

    General CommentActually, it was released in 89, which is two years after that... but that's a weird thing.
