She's always askin' him what he wants to do
How many times does he have to say, he's fuckin' confused
He'd run away but there's nowhere else to run
Why do they try to conform us we just wanna have fun
We gotta fight fight fight
Fight for our Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
"Why don't you go to school? You need to grow up"
They're so infatuated like growing up
Is something you shoot up
Some girls my age they want to have a baby
Some of them wanna get married...they're fucking crazy
We gotta fight fight fight
Fight for our Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
Adults try to bring us up to be and act like them
If we don't act alike discard and try again
There is no room deep in their eyes for an individual
"Conform" and "stand in line" make sure you fit the mold
It's alright to grow old, to mature and become wise
Too bad all they seem to want is to die in ignorance
"Straighten your back, straighten your face and lose your grin"
"It's time to be serious, think hard but always give in"
"You are the inferior, open your eyes and close your mouth"
"Grow up to be just like me watch and follow with no doubt"
Train children just like a dog
"Try not to get in the way"
"When I talk you should obey"
"Try not to get in the way"
It's not a war
What are you fighting for
Life's not a war
There's no need to conform
We need help but not every day
There's no need, no need to use force
We need help but not in every single way
We don't need utter control
"Why don't you go to school? You need to grow up"
Like growing up is something you can shoot up
All of us we'd run away but where would we go?
Just loosen your grip on our leash you don't have to let go
We gotta fight fight fight
Fight for our Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth
Confused Youth

    General CommentTrue yo this song is good and it does prove a point. There is no need to force kids to do things when they are confused...i mean they should be having fun and learning from trial and error, not being told what school to go to or how to do things in life. That's fuckin wrong.

    General CommentI think this song is about trying to be yourself and be free and going your own way, while society constantly tries to get you to conform and join it and don't take you seriously. "Why don't you go to school, you need to grow up" - like growing up is something that you just shoot up! " I love that line.

    "Just loosen your grip on our leash you don't have to let go" meaning your still on a leash, their leash and as long as you are they're happy, and you feel more free still cause the grip is looser then it used to, but none the less you're on the leash and controlled.
