"Get What You Want" as written by James Valentine, Elizabeth Anne Berg, Jason Lyon Boesel, Alex Greenwald and Stephen Michael Runion....
Disappointed?
You know there’s never gonna be a cheery face inside this crowded room
Think you're the shit now
Because my lingo
Is so outta the loop, well yes I’m outta the loop

Let's turn our nose up
Become a snob because we're treading on rooves
Cos we’re so fucking cool
Oh give that act up
You know you geeks that conglomerate in this city we speak of

[Chorus]

Cos you don’t always get what you want!
I know you can [x3]
Cos you don’t always get what you want!
I know you can [x3]

Attack attack
My disposition got the vulnerable predators on the loose
Yeah let's be vulgur
With some internet sex naked computers

I wish I could feed you some Ritalin
So maybe I could get a reaction
Or maybe even a visual expression
But it’s not your fault if you really don’t wanna

[Chorus] x4

Attack attack
My disposition
Your tennis shoes, oh yeah your ten issues
Whatever am I, to do?

I wish I could feed you some Ritalin
So maybe I could get a reaction
Or maybe even some visual expression
But it’s not your fault if you really don’t wanna

[Chorus] x2
You don’t always get what you want! [x4]

    General CommentOkay, I'll take gpinai91's word for this, seeing as they were posted by Sarah herself, though they sound pretty much like the lyrics you posted yourself.

    Thanks to divicool72 and brokenspeech__ for you suggestions too.

    I heard this song was about hipsters?

    General CommentI think this song is about being who you aren't and pretending to be someone else just for the hell of it.
