I'm a person just like you.
But I've got better things to do.
Than sit around and fuck my head.
Hang out with the living dead.

Snort white shit up my nose.
Pass out at the shows.
I don't even think about speed.
That's something I just don't need.

(Chorus)
I've got a the straight edge.

I'm a person just like you.
But I've got better things to do.
Than sit around and smoke dope.
'Cause I know I can cope.

Laugh at the thought of eating ideas.
Laugh at the thought of sniffing glue.
Always gonna keep in touch.
Never want to use a crutch.

    This is such a powerful song. It was with this song that the straight edge movement began. It was this song that started such an uprising in young people to realize that substance abuse was wrong.
    Along with many other rockers who believe this, I am straight edge.
