For Abbie Hoffman

lyrics

My mind is filled with confusing emotions
I'll tell you why - it's because of these notions
You can tell me I can choose exactly who I wanna be
But that doesn't really sound that truthful to me
When I was young you told me how to behave
In the back of my mind, your seeds made me a slave
And later in my life you pressured me to death
To make the right the decisions - the ones that fit you best

I don't want to be a fucking fish in your fucking sea
And I don't want to be a victim of authority
My mind is my own, though your power is major
But that's because you steal the fruit of my labour

Being different is harder than you think
And if you see yourself as different you need to realise one thing:
Dont conform to uniforms! Be your-fucking-self!
You're different in your mind, not in what you wear
But somehow you still conform to another scheme
And it doesn't matter how much you try, you won't fulfill your dreams
But if you don't wanna be tamed, and put in place
Lace up your boots and kick the rulers in their faces

I don't want to be a fucking fish in your fucking sea
And I don't want to be a victim of authority
My mind is my own, though your power is major
But that's because you steal the fruit of my labour
