Lose the costume
The days of dress-up are gone
Time to join in and put a different outfit on
Maybe thats harsh well lets find a happy medium
Be responsible and you can wear it in the evening

This dude took pride in his cause everyday
Put on his costume which defined who he was
He said he didnt care he liked being unique
Accused the rest of the world of being a bunch of sheep
Lived his life going against the grain
Spent all of his time with those who felt the same
Hit his mid-twenties and still nothings changed
Except his boys who chose to grow with age
Now hes looking for friends with the same behavior
He hangs out on campus with a bunch of teenagers
Hes punk rock hes hip-hop hes everything the system’s not
And he likes it that way he likes being on the defense
He likes having something to fight against
He likes calling himself a revolutionist
Im sorry but you have an identity crisis

(chorus)
Lose the costume
The days of dress-up are gone
Time to join in and put a different outfit on
Maybe thats harsh well lets find a happy medium
Be responsible and you can wear it in the evening
And on the weekends when its appropriate
You can make believe for a minute
Stir up some controversy and have fun
But hang-up your angst when play time is done

Ignore the truth and neglect your responsibility
Because you cant decipher the real world from your hobbies
This whole starving artist shtick youve been running with is wearing thin
Put it to an end and grow old gracefully
Time for you to start cooperating cuz rent aint free
And neither is your familys needs
What you want and should expect are two different things
You think the rest of the world likes their suits and ties working nine to five just to get by?
Maybe, I mean if theyve figured out what it truly means to make this life count
But that dont sit well with youre anti-authority
Me against the world sub-genre category that youve placed yourself in
Do you honestly think the average man celebrates the system
But they cooperate
