lyrics

I've been marching in time with the grand old men
Sold my soul to the rebel, bought it back again
Held a rock in my hand and a tear gas can
I killed God and I've been born again

I ain't felt half as old as I do right now
For all the causes I've taken and disavowed
But you’ll nudge and insist I take up your sword
Assume I'll join in to your world word wars

You worship opinion
Read news, form your own views
Believe you're the cool kid
But I'm just not with you

All you cult fucking leaders are full of it
They got no right to tell you to tell me what to think
Ain't it weird that they’re always the only one
The one dear leader you can trust, son

You question my honor
I question your sanity
You call me a sellout
Go sell your conspiracy

No, I won’t try to fit in any farther
I know it ain’t too rock and roll to think with my own brain
And there won’t be no jumping off of no bridges
For each messiah that you bring
Beneath the noise my inner voice still rings

Come back and talk to me
Slow down and talk to me
You know in your heart the world's not out to get you
Come out and talk to me
Settle down and talk to me
There'll be a new club to join when this falls through

No, I won’t try to fit in any farther
I know it ain’t too rock and roll to think with my own brain
And there won’t be no jumping off of no bridges
For each messiah that you bring
Beneath the noise my inner voice still rings

The rocket launch contdown
It's Oz coming out now
It's making you sober
The election is over
