I wanna be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I wanna be the minority

I pledge allegiance to the underworld
One nation under dog
There of which I stand alone
A face in the crowd
Unsung, against the mold
Without a doubt
Singled out
The only way I know

'Cause I wanna be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority

Stepped out of the line
Like a sheep runs from the herd
Marching out of time
To my own beat now
The only way I know

One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
"For crying out loud" she screamed unto me
A free for all
Fuck 'em all
You are your own sight

'Cause I wanna be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I wanna be the minority

One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
"For crying out loud" she screamed unto me
A free for all
Fuck 'em all
You are your own sight

'Cause I wanna be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I wanna be the minority

I wanna be the minority
I wanna be the minority
I wanna be the minority
I wanna be the minority

    Youth. he's living the reality that he is no longer a child. not able to find hidout or cover in his parents, or other adults that take the blame for you when you are young and inexperienced, still learning about life. He wants to to relive the days where he was young and enjoyed life, regreting some mistakes he madde and couldn't fix as an adult. he's old and tired of being told to follow the law or to do this or that. being a kid not responsible for anything.YOUTH

    He's sick of all the discrimination bull***. He's growing up and realizing how the world can be. He doesn’t like what he sees and he’s not gonna accept it. Power to the people! :)
