Anti-flag – Their System Doesn't Work For You lyrics

One day while sitting in my room
You came in preaching
Your words predicting doom
You've never once been
Because I'm not
Happy with me,
What you want me to be.. No!!!
To pray and go to school

You tried to teach me
You tried to teach me
To be the system's tool
What I was smart enough to see
But you missed
That their system doesn't work

Oh.. You can be what you want to be
For you or me
Oh.. Don't believe what they say is true
Oh.. Their system doesn't work for you
Oh.. Don't have to choose

To join the corporate army
Don't try to figure out what's wrong or right
For god and country give up your life,
You never tried to stop, to look, to see
That you're exactly what you're told to be
You did everything fucking right
You followed the system's guiding light
To fucking get a job,
And now you fucking bitch to me
When you don't like
You fucking corporate whore
That life you've got

For you or me
Oh.. Don't believe what they say is true
Oh.. Their system doesn't work for you
Oh.. You can be what you want to be
To join their corporate army
Oh.. Don't have to choose

Don't have to choose
To join their corporate army
To join their corporate army
Don't have to choose, don't have to choose

Your choice... (x8)
