With a bit of loose change in my pocket
Yeah my soul is stubborn
And nothing'll stop me
And I know where I'm going
I'll go at it alone
I know where I'm going
Yeah my minds still strong

So step in my way
And I'll knock you down
Like a thousand shit bricks
I'll drag you to the ground
I'm done with crumbling under my fears
I'll make it my own way
Through blood sweat and tears

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Freedom of expression
In a world with no repression

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Freedom of expression
In a world with no repression

You can't pay this piper to play your tune
I'll say what I want
So you can sit and endure
And I've been told in hope
That degenerates change
Not in this case
Insane I'll remain

And I've been kicked when I'm down
And I've been told I'm nothing
Well I'm back for you fuckers
Don't tempt me
I'll crush em
I'm sick of hypocrisy
And fabricated acts
Where love for music
Is sacrificed for cash

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Freedom of expression
In a world with no repression

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Freedom of expression
In a world with no repression

Oi oi oi oi oi oi oi oi oi oi oi oi, whoa!

Take back this bottle of liquor
Cos I found something
Gets to my heart a little quicker, and
Take back this bottle of liquor
Cos I found something
Gets to my heart a little quicker, and
It does something to me
Moves right through me
Head rush I can't forget
Nothing I'll live to regret
This rock n roll it moves me
Moves right through me
Is my integrity
It's what it takes to set me free

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Freedom of expression
In a world with no repression

And I'll live for rock n roll
And I'll die before I sell my soul
Yeah I live for rock n roll
Screw your industry, I won't let it go!

Thank you, Cleveland!

    General CommentHaha. Well the "Thank you, Cleveland" at the end is a reference to Spinal Tap, obviously.

    This song is awesome. Sort of like a middle finger to either big bands who "sell out" or record execs who pressure bands into "selling out".
