"Thank You" as written by Evan Bogart, Emanuel Kiriakou, Andrew Goldstein, Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller....
Yo, this one right here is for all the drop out-of-schoolers.
The future cougars, the Mary Jane abusers.
The ones that chose to be losers, for all the Misfit Kids and total outcasts MKTO.
This one's for you role models.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong, we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, 'cause there's nothing left to lose.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies.
Thank you for the wars you left us to fight.
Thank you for the world you ruined overnight.
But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Thank you for the world you broke, like yolk and it ain't no joke.
So cold and there ain't no coat, just me, my friends, my folks and
We better do what we like.
So raise that bird up high and when they ask you why.
Just stand there laugh and smile.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong, we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, 'cause there's nothing left to lose.

Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na (Thank you)

Thank you for the times you said, "Don't make a sound."
Thanks for the ropes you used to hold us down.
'Cause when I break through I'ma use them to reach the clouds.
We ain't comin' down, we ain't comin' down

Look, ma, I finally made it, this world is too damn jaded.
My life is just like Vegas, go big, go home get faded.
Been a problem since '92.
Can't shut me down curfew and them girls I'll take a few.
Do what I wanna do.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong, we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na (Thank you)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
From head to toe from the soul you ripped apart.
I say, "Thank you", I say, "Thank you."
Yeah oh, thank you

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don' tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong, we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong, we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose. (Thank you)

Na na na na (Yo if you don't like what they tell you to do)
Na na na na na na (Don't do it)
Na na na na (If you don't want to be who they want you to be)
Na na na na na na (Screw it)

Na na na na (It's your world, it's your life)
Na na na na na na (And they ruined it)
Na na na na (Role models, tune in, turn up)
Na na na na na na (Drop out!)

    My InterpretationI think it's about some people getting out of school and just pretty much just telling the adults they don't give a crap about what they think, and that they are going to live their own lives, and they are going to make their own generation. They arn't going to be exactly like everyone else and they are going to be different. So i really like this song because it really encourages you to be different, and not conform.
