"Don't Wanna" as written by and Jordan Jeffrey Gatesmith....
Standing off with a girl named Rose
The tattoo on her neck says "so it goes"
She's dying for the chance just to let us know
That much like her, we're being sold

Well you don't have to be a punk if you don't want to
You don't even have to date girls if you don't want to
You don't have to be Kurt Cobain if you don't want to
You don't have to listen to The Germs if you don't want to

Every place is the same
So you moved to Minneapolis and changed your name
Now you're watching TV in a scummy bar
Thinking "what is this shit?", there's no such thing as fun

Well you don't have to be anyone if you don't want to
You don't have to get a job if you don't want to
You don't have to read Ayn Rand if you don't want to
You don't have to listen to The Smiths if you don't want to

The truth is nothing but a waste of time
A hung up old suit and a runaway bride
The only thing that should frighten you is nothing
Kicking around, building confidence for something

Well you don't have to be a punk if you don't want to
You don't even have to date boys if you don't want to
You don't have to be fooled twice if you don't want to
You don't have to listen to me if you don't want to, no
