1... 2... 3... 4
Well I won't be caught living in a dead end job
While praying to my government, guns, and god
'Cause it's us against them
We're here to represent
And spit right in the face of the establishment

And now I don't believe (In having faith in nothing!)
Stand on my own (Got no sympathy!)
Wasting the youth (While being young and useless!)
Speak for yourself (And don't pray for me!)

Because we're doing fine
And we don't need to be told
That we're doing fine
Cause we won't give you control
And we don't need anything from you
Cause we'll be just fine
And we won't be bought and sold
Just like you

(A call across the Underclass)

Calling out loud with no respect
I'm not the one, just another reject
I'm the voice to offend
All those who pretend
Unsung against the grain I'm here to rise against

And now I'm desensitized (I state my place in nowhere!)
Burning the flag (Of the degeneration!)
Everyone sing (The Anthem of no future!)
Down with the mass ('Cause we're not listening!)

Well because we're doing fine
And we don't need to be told
That we're doing fine
Cause we won't give you control
And we don't need anything from you
Cause we'll be just fine
And we won't be bought and sold
Just like you

May I have your attention please...
I pledge allegiance to the underclass as your hero at large.

1... 2... 3... 4

We're the saints of degeneration
We don't owe anyone an explanation
Fuck elitists
We don't need this
We're the elite of just alright

Well because we're doing fine
And we don't need to be told
That we're doing fine
Cause we won't give you control
And we don't need anything from you
Cause we'll be just fine
And we won't be bought and sold
Just like you

    due to the timing of the song's release, as well as the lyrics, i think this is a dig at Sum 41's old guitarist
