Well the authorities called me up
said you may well end up in prison
I said I may well but you know I'll run away before then
Said you know we'll catch you
I said naw you wouldn't know where to start
You may well put in prison but you'll won't ever touch my heart

Say that kids my age think they're invincible
Well that seems foolish but I still know I'll never die
And it seems to be invincible all you gotta do is stay alive
And I can do that on my own just stay out of the conversation

Cause your laws mean shit to me
They're just arbitrary guidelines and absouloutless ideology
And it seems to me when your the ones that kill in the street
You got the right to tell me what to do if i want to be free
Cause I'm not your property
Now I belong to me

They say my generation don't stand up for what we believe in
I think its all cause we've been told just what to do right from the start
Don't break the guidelines given believe in television
Well we still know what we believe when it comes pouring out our hearts

    General Commenti love the quickness of the guitar and the anxiety in his voice. it's like mayer's 'waiting for the world to change' with actual depth! aha, that's an awful analogy. "well we still know what we believe in when it comes pouring out our hearts" is totally reflected in the song, it's soo hot.
