Opening track of Young Offenders debut Album (to be released Jan 2020)


Well I do exactly what I want
Even if you think it’s right or not
You can do just as you please
Because I don’t care it don’t phase me

Well I’m not perfect of that I’m sure
I’m not wasting my time no more
I don’t mind won’t tell you what to do
The world we live in it has control of you

So I do what I want when I want to
You can try but I won’t listen to you
You can beat me ’til I’m black and blue
But I’ll still do what I want when I want to

You're not livin' you’re all just slaves
To the dollar sign break your backs all day
Don’t you want a little more
There’s a big wide world for you to explore

9 to 5 has a purpose I guess
Gotta pay your bills and pay your rent
But I don’t wanna waste my life
Making money for some other guy
