Good Charlotte – The Anthem lyrics

It's a new day, but it all feels old
It's a good life, that's what I'm told
But everything, it all just feels the same

At my high school, it felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
My time spent there it only made me see

That I don't ever wanna be like you
I don't wanna do the things you do
I'm never gonna hear the words you say
And I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be

You... Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' is this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up, you, don't wanna be you

"Go to college, a university, get a real job,"
That's what they said to me
But I could never live the way they want
I'm gonna get by and just do my time, out of step while they all get in line
I'm just a minor threat so pay no mind

Do you really wanna be like them, do you really wanna be another trend?
Do you wanna be part of their crowd?
'Cause I don't ever wanna, No I don't ever wanna be

You... Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' is this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up, you, don't wanna be you

Shake it once, that's fine
Shake it twice, that's okay
Shake it three times, you're playin with yourself again

You... Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' is this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up,
Y'all got to feel me, sing if you're with me,
You, don't wanna be just like you (be just like you)
This is the anthem throw all your hands up,
Y'all got to feel me, sing if you're with me
Another loser anthem (Whoa-oh)
Another loser anthem (Whoa-oh)
Another loser anthem

    I think that this song means that people should be who they want to be, not what others tell them they should be. He's saying that he wants to stand out, he doesn't want to fit it. He doesn't want to be part of the normal crowd. He wants to be different, he wants to show people that he could care less about how they feel about him or what they say. All in all, he's saying that it's okay to be different, in fact, it's good to be an individual, to stand out. Totally amazing song.
