Fat Lip Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Strollin' to the party like my name is El Nino
Well I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El camino
As a kid, was a skid and no one knew me by name
I trashed my own house party 'cause no body came
Verse 2
Well I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school
Never going, never showing up when we had to
Attention that we crave don't tell us to behave
I'm sick of always hearing act your age
Verse 3
I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down
Verse 4
Because you don't
Know us at all we laugh when old people fall
But what would you expect with a conscience so small
Heavy metal and mullets is how we were raised
Maiden and Priest were the Gods that we praised
Verse 5
'Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and
Cutting people down is just a minor offense then
It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn
I'm sick of being told to wait my turn
Verse 6
I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down
Verse 7
Don't count on me, to let you know when
Don't count on me, I'll do it again
Don't count on me, it's the point you're missing
Don't count on me, 'cause I'm not listening
Verse 8
Well I'm a no-goodnick lower middle class brat
Back packed and I don't give a shit about nothing
You be standing on the corner talking all that kerfluffin'
But you don't make sense from all the gas you be huffing
'Cause if the egg don't stain, you'll be ringing off the hook
You're on the hit list, wanted in the telephone book
I like songs with distortion, to drink in proportion
The dentist said my mom should have had an abortion
Verse 9
I don't want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society
I'll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down
Verse 10
Waste my time with a
Casualty of society
Waste my time with a
Victim of your conformity
And back down
