Lyrics Edit

Call it what you want

Call it what you want

I said just call it what you want

Call it what you want

Yeah we're locked up in ideas

We like to label everything

Well I'm just gonna do here what I gotta do here

'Cause I gotta keep myself free

You're ducking and moving just to hide your bruises from all your enemies

And I'm in the crossfire dodging bullets from your expectancies

We've got nothing to lose

You better run and hide

Yeah you've crossed the line

I've got a knife behind my back (just sayin')

We've got nothing to prove

Your social guides give you swollen eyes

But what I've got can't be bought so you can just

Call it what you want

Call it what you want

I said just call it what you want

Call it what you want

You've taken your words and you take your judgments

And stick them onto everything

If it don't conform to what you were born into,

Then you run the other way

You say, "now what's your style and who do you listen to?" who cares?

Well that rat race ladder-climbing fake-face smile's got nothing on me

We've got nothing to lose

You better run and hide

Yeah you've crossed the line

I've got a knife behind my back (just sayin')

We've got nothing to prove

Your social guides give you swollen eyes

But what I've got can't be bought so you can just

Call it what you want

Call it what you want

I said just call it what you want

Call it what you want
