Eleventyseven – Like You Rock lyrics

Lets reach middle america
Assume the only thing they hear is this
Tune it up spit it out see if anybody sticks
It's so simplistic, masochistic
The statistics show we're getting bored with templates
And now the kids want something different

I'm not gonna rock like you rock I'm not gonna roll like
You roll
I'm gonna drop my own kind of beat I'm gonna sing my own
Kind of song
I'm not gonna be a bodiless head that's all talk
I'm not gonna rock like you rock

Here's a brand new business model
Say a prayer then hit the throttle hard
Sell it all as a jewel case covered hope
It's imitation, segregation
Mix it down and then spoon feed it to a nation
But nobody wants to taste it

I'm not gonna dance like you dance I'm not gonna flow
Like you flow
I'm gonna top my own kind of charts I'm gonna play my own
Kind of shows
I'm not gonna be a thought you bought in a box
I'm not gonna rock like you rock
