Strollin' through the party like my name was El Nino
When I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El camino
As a kid, was a skid and no one knew me by name
Trashed my own house party 'cause no body came

I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school
Never goin', never showin' up when we had to
Attention that we crave don't tell us to behave
I'm sick of always hearing act your age

I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down

Because you don't
Know us at all we laugh when old people fall
But what would you expect with a conscience so small
Heavy metal and mullets, it's how we were raised
Maiden and Priest were the Gods that we praised

'Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and
Cutting people down is just a minor offense then
It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn
I'm sick of being told to wait my turn

I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down

Don't count on me, to let you know when
Don't count on me, I'll do it again
Don't count on me, it's the point you're missing
Don't count on me, 'cause I'm not listening

Well I'm a no-goodnick lower middle class brat
Back pack and I don't give a shit about nothing
You'll be standing on the corner talking all that kerfluffin'
But you don't make sense from all the gas you be huffing
'Cause if the ink don't stain, you'll be ringing off the hook
You're on the hit list, wanted in the telephone book
I like songs with distortion, to drink in proportion
The doctor said my mom should have had an abortion

I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down

Waste my time with a
Casualty of society
Waste my time with a
Victim of your conformity
And back down

    General CommentTo the people bashing Sum 41. This song is great. it doesn't matter what a band does with thier name or their merchandise or what they sell or anything. It's all about the music. if u like a song it doesn't matter who it's by as long as it's good. Just because they are "sell-outs" doesn't mean you like them. If u don't like this song then why did u even look it up? Don't bash on them just because they got popular. Oh... and Canada is evil!

    General Commentthis song reminds me of me and my friends:
    Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and,
    Cutting people down is just a minor offence then,
    It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn.
