I don’t know what you think
and I don’t know why you drink.
I don’t know why you try to give me drinks all the time. Some people say "respect" other people say "reject"
but that’s your choice.

I don’t want to be like you,
where every night you’re drinking juice.
Where every night you need a friend to drink that bottle to the end.
I don’t really think it’s bad. I just think it’s kind of sad,
but that’s your choice.

Just have a drink.
Just let me think.
Just have a drink.
Just let me think.
Don’t wanna drink and
don’t wanna smoke
and after all that I’ve been told.
I just wanna stand and make my pledge to be
STRAIGHT EDGE!

    General CommentIm sXe and i think this is one of the most intelligent songs ever written in the history of mankind. If you are like me go download Minor Threat - Straight Edge. Same message just more faster and harder.

    General CommentI'm sXe too and I think this song is really good : not that the lyrics a really deep or something like that, but it teaches us one thing : TOLERANCE!!! We don't drink, but we don't have to judge the others!!
