"My Way" as written by and Butch Walker....
So you grew up in a town where everybody's all the same
Like a city full of zombies going by the same name
Saying eat this, wear that, think ya know just where it's at
When everybody's just alike, now tell me how you deal with that?

(This much is true)
So here's a finger, let me say it

There's the right way
Then there's my way
There's a highway
(If you don't like it, you can take it)
So just talk away
I don't hear a word you say
I'll be my way
(If you don't like it, you can take it)

You got the ultimate song, but you're fucking up the words
And you're fallin' from the bridge that goes straight into the verse
They're saying do this, do that, tell ya how to wear your hat
If everyone was just alike, I don't think I could deal with that

(This much is true)
So can you hear me as I'm saying

There's the right way
Then there's my way
There's a highway
(If you don't like it, you can take it)
So just talk away
I don't hear a word you say
I'll be my way
(If you don't like it, you can take it)

I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to
I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to

There's the right way
Then there's my way
There's a highway
(If you don't like it, you can take it)
So just talk away
I don't hear a word you say
I'll be my way
(If you don't like it, you can take it)

There's the right way
Then there's my way
There's a highway
(If you don't like it, you can take it)
So just talk away
I don't hear a word you say
I'll be my way
(If you don't like it, you can take it)

I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to
I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to
I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to
I don't want to
Be the one who
Does everything like I'm told to

(Fade out)

    General CommentWow, this song is so exciting. I love Butch Walker, and I can't wait until the cd, 'Left Of Self Centered' comes out. Anyway, this song is reminiscent of 'Sugarbuzz' and 'Freak of the Week' in that they're all those "shove it up your ass" anthems. I love it!

    General Commenti saw this guy two days ago at a really small club venue and all i have to say is that if you get a chance to see him in concert, DO IT.. you won't regret it one bit.

    General CommentI totally agree with sunBurnt.. Go see Butch! I've only gotten to see him twice at Music Midtown, once in Marvie and once by himself and he is THE rockstar. He's the only reason I love living in Atlanta.

    General CommentThis song is an ode to non conformity. Do things your way and do them becauseyou want to. Forget what everyone else does and be your own person. Rock On!

    General CommentYeah, it's basically just an angry song about doing things his own way. Always nice to have a listen.

    "If everyone was just alike I don't think I could deal with that."

    Most poignant lines in the song for me.

    General CommentChaosFluro24 has it right xD

    It's about being surrounded by clones, and still refusing to conform.
