Rock 'n' Roll Rebel

They couldn't see what I thought would be so obvious They hide behind the laws they made for all of us The ministry of truth that deals with pretense The ministry of peace that sits on defense I'm washing my hands of what they're trying to do It's for me, it's for me, it's for you, it's for you I'm just a rock 'n' roll rebel I'll tell you no lies They say I worship the devil They must be stupid or blind I'm just a rock 'n' roll rebel They live a life of fear and insecurity And all you do is pay for their prosperity The ministry of fear that won't let you live The ministry of grace that doesn't forgive Do what you will to try and make me conform I'll make you wish that you had never been born Cause I'm a rock 'n' roll rebel I'll do what I please Yes I'm a rock 'n' roll rebel And I'm as free as the breeze I'm just a rock 'n' roll rebel They'll try playin' with your heart They know it rules your head If they could read between the lines You know they'd see the real day God only knows why they couldn't see the obvious Is it because they manifest the incubus The ministry of war that got caught in the draft The ministry of joy that still hasn't laughed When it's all boiled down and the day's at an end I'll give you no bullshit and I'll never pretend Cause I'm a rock 'n' roll rebel I'll tell you no lies They say I worship the devil Why don't they open their eyes I'm just a rock 'n' roll rebel A rock 'n' roll rebel I'm just a rock 'n' roll rebel
