i wrote a song… in my mind

without a cause

i never considered myself to be a rebel.  i grew up a pretty good kid.  i always obeyed the rules, never did anything to get myself in trouble.

however, recently, i can’t help but realize that a lot of the things i do are pretty rebellious.  and when i think about it, i’m like, me?  a rebel?  no way!  but it turns out, i’m pretty rebellious.  i don’t like to go with the norm.  i remember getting my ear pierced.  i did it because i was rebeling against my parents.

for some reason, i feel like i have to be different.  although all my life all i wanted was to be “normal”, i just can’t get myself to do things that other people are doing unless i have a really good reason to.  maybe i just want to stand out?  maybe i just don’t like establishment?  i dunno, i think i just have a thing for freedom.  i mean, i can’t even sit still in a chair for 5 minutes.  i need freedom.  i can’t be confined.  maybe that’s where my rebellion comes from.

  2. hey.. i think i know where the kickin’ kids place is.

    it’s people who seem to obey rules all the time that have the scary rebellious side. not saying that you do or anything…

    ironic, isn’t it? we all try to be different and since everyone wants to be different, we’re all the same. i thought it was hilarious in south park, the emo kids are always talking about how different they want to be from the rest, and yet everyone in the group is the same.

    i feel so out of place, being the one who tries to obey the rules [most of the time].
