I look at how you live
And I see how sad you are
You're the one who brought you down
You could've gone so far
Now you just do drugs all day
Deteriorating fast
And you're so fucked from shooting dope
Your veins are all collapsed
I don't wanna be like you...so I won't
I take a look at my parents
And see how they scream and fight
My mother even tells me
That she cries herself to sleep at night
Dad's gone to the bottle
But he says he's doing fine
And all my younger siblings
Being raised on ugly lies
I don't wanna be like you...so I won't
Let's go!
Pick it, pick it up!
Right!
Pick it up, pick it up
That's right!
Once a revolutionary fighting for a cause
Now a successful buisnessman
Who'd never break a law
You say, "Thank God I grew up, I was such a stupid kid."
But if everyone gave up like you
No one would ever win
I don't wanna be like you...so I won't
And I won't let anyone tell me
What I'm supposed to be
I won't bow down to authority
I won't compromise, gonna stay angry
I won't ever let this world break me
I don't wanna be like you...so I won't
I don't wanna be like you...so I won't
No I won't!!!
