Its not selling out, its growing up
Were the words that fell from your fucking mouth
How can you throw away so much conviction
You are the weakest link
Your fucking number's up
You've lost sight and now apathy rules you

Admit your weakness to the evils of this world
Admit your weakness to be accepted
I hope you die
Confess youre fucking weakness

Its not selling out, its growing up
Were the words that proved you're nothing
Is this the only excuse you could come up with
For being a traitor
For being a liar
For being a sellout
For being a fucking sellout

Admit your weakness to the evils of this world
Admit your weakness to be accepted
I hope you die
Confess youre fucking weakness

You'll always be one step behind
You'll always be a wasted life

    General CommentDefinitely talking about breaking edge.
    Being Straight Edge and then breaking it is pretty much the definition of "selling out." And a lot of people do try and pass it off as "growing up," instead of admitting what it really is; a betrayal of all their old morales and beliefs...a.k.a. selling out. And I think that's basically the message that this song is trying to convey...except in a much more pissed off, violent way.
