We're breaking all the rules
                      D

We gonna do what we like
G 
So raise that bird up high
Em 
And when they ask you why
D 
Just stand there laugh and smile

                                  D          
Thanks for the ropes you used to hold us down
C                           G                              
Cause when I break through I'ma use them to reach the cloud

Look Ma I finally made it
G 
This world is too damn jaded

Outro: C  G  Em  D

Yo, if you don't like what they tell you to do
Don't do it
If you don't want to be who they want you to be
Screw it
It's your world
It's your life
And they ruined it
Role models
Tune in
Turn up
Drop out
