You waited long for 21.
For me the fight has just begun.
You get in clubs, drink alcohol,
It makes you feel you're ten feet tall.
I don't wanna grow up,
I'm never getting old.
I'd rather work from 9 to 5
Than drink to stay alive.
I'm gonna stay young until I die! (2x)
You grew up fast, now you'll die soon.
I'll never fucking be like you.
You finish college, grab a wife,
You're dead before you're 35.
(Repeat Chorus)

    General Commenti think is about staying hardcore and not "growing up", not becoming like a "normal adult" drinking moving on settling down with a steady job and so on

    General Commentthis song is mos definitly about how a lot of people become pretty much zombies - take my parents for example. their lives pretty much revolve around work and the TV shedule.

    General CommentFor me, it's a song about creating a new idea of adulthood, one that is a more logical conclusion of youth rather than the alcohol-soaked mindless consumers that most of us become. Classic band, classic song.
