Cooperate

Loose the costume the days of dress-up are gone time to join in and put a different outfit on maybe that's harsh well let's find a happy medium be responsible and you can wear it in the evening.

This dude took pride in his cause everyday put on his costume which defined who he was he said he didn't care he liked being unique accused the rest of the world of being a bunch of sheep lived his life going against the grain spent all of his time with those who felt the same hit his mid-twenties and still nothing's changed except his boys who chose to grow with age now he's looking for friends with the same behavior he hangs out on campus with a bunch of teenagers he's punk rock he's hip-hop he's everything the systems not and he likes it that way he likes being on the defense he likes having something to fight against he likes calling himself a revolutionist I'm sorry but you have an identity crisis.

Loose the costume the days of dress-up are gone time to join in and put a different outfit on maybe that's harsh well let's find a happy medium be responsible and you can wear it in the evening and on the weekends when it's appropriate you can make believe for a minute stir up some controversy have fun but hang-up your angst when play time is done.

Ignore the truth and neglect your responsibility because you can't decipher the real world from your hobbies this whole starving artist shtick you've been running with is wearing thin put it to an end and grow old gracefully time for you to start cooperating cuz rent ain't free and neither is your family's needs what you want and should expect are two different things you think the rest of the world likes their suits and ties working nine to five just to get by maybe I mean if they've figured out what it truly means to make this life count but that don't sit well with your anti-authority me against the world sub-genera category that you've placed yourself in do you honestly think the average man celebrates the system but they cooperate.

Chorus

Looks like we got ourselves a case of a young man trying to find his place feel the tension from his independance slipping eating his ideals as the real world grips him what a sad little human being and I'm sorry that might be mean but you've been picking on folks in the name of your scene now you lose the costume and come clean and that's just the thing is it your cause or your outfit I guess it meant nothing at all in a sense cause then if it did your involvement would mean more than middle fingers and the opportunity to instigate arguments but you like being on the defense you like having something to fight against even without a cause you like being a revolutionist I'm sorry but you have an identity crisis.
