Pennywise - Fuck Authority Lyrics

Someday you gotta find another way, you better right your mind
and live by what you say
Today is just another day unless you set your sights and try to find a way
I say fuck authority
Silent majority
Raised by the system
Now it's time to rise against them
We're sick of your treason
Sick of your lies
Fuck no, we won't listen
We're gonna open your eyes
Frustration, domination, feel the rage of a new generation,
we're livin', we're dyin' and we're never gonna stop, stop tryin'
Stop tryin'
Stop tryin', stop tryin'

You know the time is right to take control,
we gotta take offense against the status quo
No way, not gonna stand for it today, fight for your rights,
it's time we had our say

I say fuck authority
Silent majority
Raised by the system
Now it's time to rise against them
We're sick of your treason
Sick of your lies
Fuck no, we won't listen
We're gonna open your eyes
Frustration, domination, feel the rage of a new generation,
we're livin', we're dyin', we take the time and will endless try and destroy,
enjoy, you fight the world, become a new toy, dominate, eliminate,
do you feel the wrath, wrath of hate?

Fuck authority
Silent majority
Raised by the system
Now it's time to rise against them
We're sick of your treason
Sick of your lies
Fuck no, we won't listen
We're gonna open your eyes
Frustration, domination, feel the rage of a new generation,
we're livin', we're dyin' and we're never gonna stop, stop tryin'
Stop tryin'
Stop tryin', stop tryin'

    I did not know that a group of high ranking government officials had created their own band.... But for some reason I thought that this hit was called "screw legitimation".

  21. dust. wind

    I disagree with this, I see alot of young people doing what their told they are easily manipulated into following what politicians tell them, great song though sounds awesome

    Holden deWit

    dust. wind lol it’s honestly ironic how they want to resist “the man” or the “people in power” so they shut up and do what politicians tell them to do and what is popular claiming they are the underdogs even when they’re the majority

  22. SLR107FR31

    This song was written with President Bush in mind.

    Now in 2019 it couldn't fit more appropriately

    Oompa Loompa

    still better than any democratic leader.
    Bernie = more goverment,anti gun rights,anti freedom of speech.
    Bernie = authority.
    Just bash his head in with a baseball bat

  23. MVLGUS

    Miss the old pennywise

  24. BloodyPandaAE86

    the right wing(capitalism) is for lesser govt & lesser "big brother".

    the left wing(socialism) is for more govt & more "big brother"

    however, anarchy will never win and neither will the Independents.

    think about who you vote for next election season.

    West coast renegade

    @fkujakedmyname so you support China?

    Black Templar

    @Kropotkin The Bread Conqueror pretty sure they are waving flags of the UK mate, you also know that waving flags is symbolism, it doesn't mean they want that country to rule over them, its a banner to rally behind


    The only flag I want to see raised is a black flag
