Cause tumblr loves this type of shit.

This is a song about rebellion 
This is the fucking opus of a unique subculture 
You got a lot of nerve showing your face around here 
Not even ironically oblivious to this groundbreaking shit 

No table manners 
No bedtimes 
No fucking flossing, punk rock or die 

And we’re gonna smoke weed every fucking day 
We’re gonna smoke weed every fucking day 
We’re gonna smoke weed every fucking day 
We’re gonna smoke weed every fucking day 

And well, you got a lot of nerve showing your face around here 
I bet you’ve never even read Steven Blush’s American Hardcore
