Lyrics

On the way, trying to get where I'd like to say
I'm always feeling steered away
By someone trying to tell me what to say and do
I don't want it, I gotta go find my own way
Gotta go make my own mistakes
Sorry, man, for feelin', feelin' the way I do

On yeah, oh yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in their meaning of life
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Not for me, I'll do it on my own
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
Can't make it work your way
Thanks, but no thanks

Whoa...

By the way, know your path has been tried and so
It may seem like the way to go
Me, I'd rather be found trying something new
And the bottom line in all of this seems to say
There's no right and wrong way
Sorry if I don't feel like living the way you do

Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in their meaning of life
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Not for me, I'll do it on my own
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
Can't make it work your way
Thanks, but no thanks

Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in their meaning of life
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Not for me, I'll do it on my own
Whoa yeah, whoa yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
Can't make it work your way
Thanks, but no thanks

Whoa...
