LyricsEdit

I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says, "Go ahead,"
I got my hopes up again, oh no...not again...
Feels like we only go backwards, darling...

And we'll be screamin' out, "No rules, no rules!"
Feel the energy we go through, I told you
Pump my fist like I'm supposed to, I showed you
My vision of the unsocial is so cool
Look around me and just see the same, who to blame?
See my generation has no shame, I play the game
How I see it: this is inside the future, this is nothin' that you're used to
I refuse to play the victim; my religion is to move ya
Out your power position, my army head on collision
Can't harm me out of my own skin, government need assistance
Every time that I zone in, nothin' is more convincin'
Than tellin' you that I won't bend, break, or fake partition
I can't—this is my life design, this is me takin' mines
This is what I live for, this is me taking yours
This is more than C4, this is what happens
When we're ready to build and destroy—I hope that you enjoy

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says, "Go ahead,"
I got my hopes up again, oh no...not again...
Feels like we only go backwards, darling...

I live my life a rebel, a vigilante; devils try to get at me
Pedal through this underworld, undertakers won't catch me
System made no sense, don't feel justice if you would ask me
I'll tell you everything is corrupted; don't you walk past me!
With the condescendin' look, I can tell you're pretendin'
Like you my friends and you just a henchman; I feel relentless
I feel the tension in the air, thick enough to cut through it
Or cut you with it—I come from a glove that bred a nuisance
Trespass on your property, I am properly aimin'
To go and get your democracy; this is me changin' faces
'Cause I can stand alone and die alone as long as I got pride
The victory and fight is all in my eyes
The night is young and I can see your demise—I'm waitin' for it
You can't ignore it—you live dormant, I die enormous
Big as the lies you tell, I can tell that you feel defeated
The truth will set you free and to me that's the only reason, kapoosh!

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says, "Go ahead,"
I got my hopes up again, oh no...not again...
Feels like we only go backwards, darling...
