Prisoner Of Society - Lyrics by The Living End

Well we don
t need no one to tell us what to do
Oh yes we
re on our own and there
s nothing you can do
So we don
t need no one like you, to tell us what to do
We don
t refer to the past when showing what we
ve done
Our generation gap means the war is never won
The past is in your head, the futures in our hands
Cos I
m a brat  And I know everything
And I talk back  cos I
m not listening
To anything you say
And if you count to 3
ll see it
s no emergency
ll see I
m not the enemy
Just a Prisoner of Society
