Don't Sell Me Short (Bad Religion)

We don't need any more mountains because the trail builders failed to give us passage there so we can't reach the sky we don't need any more failure there is human tragedy that's written everywhere and we are all too young to die like a mystery that's here to stay some people never go away cuz they've got something to say don't sell me short! you've been wrong too long don't brush me off just because I don't belong like it or not I'm all you've got, dispose when I'm shot just don't sell me short, I might not be who you thought we don't need any more fables because the writers have passed and left us lessonless and we must find our own way we don't need any more privilege there is vivid desperation that is powerless that no surplus can repay like the fix of rapture in a trance oh, fates are sealed by circumstance so you've got to take a chance don't sell me short! you've been wrong too long don't brush me off just because I don't belong pass me on by, ignore my cry, forget me when I die just don't sell me short, not while I'm still alive everybody's talking about heaven on earth, I'm still trying to figure out just what I'm worth I'm full of emotion and stuff you can't contain and you just want to flush me down the drain but you can't make me go away
