"Kick-Ass" as written by Michael Holbrook Penniman, Nadir Khayat and Jodi Maureen Horovitz....
We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

We could rule the world
On a silver platter
From the wrong to the right light
To an open stream

With a crash and burn
We could make it better
Turn it upside down
Just you and me

We are the dream
No other way
To be

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

I could change the world
I could make it better
Kick it up and down
Take a chance on me

When you fake a smile
And you think you're better
Gonna put it down
Rip it at your feet

No bridge to burn
Nowhere to turn
For me

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

What do they know about us?
Are they thinking of somebody else?
Are they wondering what we might be?
Are they thinking of you or of me?

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong

We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

    My OpinionReminds me of a freedom fighter... Y'know, with those phrases "We could rule the world" and "We're not looking for where we belong".

    Another great song from Mika and it really goes with the movie :D
