Since you were born you watched TV
cartoons with violence and greed
in your world all that was OK
your parents never taught you right
from wrong, brother taught you to fight
it's time to show them what you've got
Time to show them what you've got

An attitude, a fancy car
your buddies got your back
your parents' house compared to yours
looks something like a shack
in your thirty seven guns
the bullets painted red
a simple stare is all it takes
to fill 'em up with lead but
Why, are you acting like you're someone else?
Why, can't you stop thinking about yourself

Last friday night you went driving
a stolen car and golden rings
it was something you just had to do
your little friends the cops caught you
you're sentenced for a long time
now tell me what you're gonna do
in a world where no one cares
labels i don't want to wear
i had a dream that i could once walk
safely in the streets
you had to take it away from me

    General Commenti actually know the guy who wrote this song is name is médérik bérubé he's my sound man and he wrote this song i think it was around the period reset were recording there demo and they recorded the song and he left the band to start another band ... pierre and chuck from simple plan were in this band ... so yeah it's a great song and it's canadian writting by a guy who speaks french :P

    General Commenta really awsome song, first reset song i heard, it has a video as well, anyways this song seems to just be about a kid who wasnt raised right and who's life reflects that, it has a really obivous meaning

    simplan does suck.

    General CommentWow. Pierre sounds really different now.

    I wonder what it would be like if Simple Plan were still Reset...

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. "In a world where no one cares, labels I don't want to wear" I love that line, stating that he doesn't want to be stereotyped and put into groups, he wants to be an individual.
    And for the record, Reset is about 6378463941 times better than simple plan, I absolutely love reset, but simple plan? not quite.
