"Too Official" as written by Sergio Vega, Tom Capone, Walter Arthur Schreifels and Alan Cage....
Give someone some piece of your mind.
Shine it, shine what you've been assigned.
Has your identity sold out?
Sit in the back and make no sound,

This earth will swallow you down.
Honest it makes you sick.
You don't act on what you think's right.
Honestly want to kick down doors that keep you in.

Let your hair down.
Sometimes relax your stiff posture.
Or so they say, all work no play make you dull.
Chance to change the patterns we're born to.

A fear of appearing too concerned,
Try to speak, but the words just get stuck.
Honest it makes you sick.
You don't act on what you think's right.

Honestly want to kick down doors that keep you in.
Each time you get to raise your hand for changes You don't know your luck,
So put yourself to use like,

You were taught by, by your heroes.
You speak your mind, that's something.
You speak your mind, that's something.
We don't get it too often.

    General CommentFirst off I would like to say that "Slip" by Quicksand, the CD which "Too Official is from" is a great album and it helped me get through some shit in high school. Like most of the CD, "Too Official" deals with the loss and repression of individualism in an increasingly modernized, capitalized world. This specific song deals with someone who just does what one is told and never speaks for oneself. Clearly though, the person the speaker is addressing is frustrated with his/her current state and wants to break free from it which seems to happen in the very last stanzas.

    General Commenti agree on what robotrock had to say - both, about the song, and about what a great album SLIP is. i don't own manic compression, but apparently it wasn't the same high quality, although the singles (thorn in my side & delusional & brown gargantuan) sound great.
