You all hate your children
They're too fat to feed
You're on medication
Taking pills to sleep
I think I'm doing just fine
Compared to what you've been doing
I won't get vaccinated
Insurance costs too much
You think you're so persuasive
But I'm not giving up
Saving my life
It's not what you're doing

I, I won't justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I like to step on cracks
I go against the odds
You think my world is flat
Do I turn you on?
Maybe, yeah I'm wrong
But I like where I'm going
I leave when others stay
I never re-decide
I don't mind if you wait
But I don't waste my time
Crazy is just fine
'Cause I like where I'm going

I, I won't justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when it wasn't so hard
I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when, I remember when

I, I didn't have to justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when it wasn't so hard
I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when, I remember when

    General Comment@MikeSak @MikeSak Not everything is political. You could ( anyone could) listen to any song written and turn it into whatever YOUR thoughts are. So really unless there is a interview where they say the meaning behind the song. Its pretty much gonna mean whatever the person listening is going to associate it with in their head/from what's going on in their personal life.
    BTW We were trillions of dollars in debt before Obama started being President. That's not a easy thing to fix. I know I would not want the pressure of trying to fix Bush's giant mess (like the trillions of dollars in debt) oh and btw I personally am not a fan of Obama.
    AND I SO HATE HOW SOMETHING AS EASY AS SONG LYRICS HAVE TO BE TURNED INTO POLITICS!!!!
    Have a great Holiday :)
