lyrics

I N T R O
You build your smug stabilities
To keep from feeling ill-at-ease
You carefully construct your world
Just wait till I have fucked your world

V E R S E 1
I never met a paradigm I couldn’t disrupt
I’m gonna make some changes
and they might be abrupt
I’m a man on a mission, of creative demolition
So get with the future,
or your ass is sure to be whooped

You want improvement but it’s only a patch
Take my constructive feedback
and start over from scratch
If tired ways of seein’ have got you disagreein’
The best way to fix this mess,
is just to hand me a match

P R E - C H O R U S 1
Forget your status quo
Alas, it has to go
So you can learn to detach

C H O R U S
If it ain't yours, take it
If it ain't true, fake it
If it ain't broke, break it

V E R S E 2
People look at me like I gone off of my meds
But ya cannot make an omelet
without breaking some heads
So now you gotta scramble
But don’t ya take the gamble
Of tryin’ to make a better plan,
I’m gonna rip it to shreds

You wanna know what I’ve been drivin’ at here?
You best give up the wheel
and let the blind man steer
I’m an innovator. You’re gonna thank me later
So get with the program now.
Am I makin’ it clear?

P R E - C H O R U S 2
Your rules do not apply
They’re for the little guy
Me, I’m a true pioneer

C H O R U S
If it ain't yours, take it
If it ain't true, fake it
If it ain't broke, break it

B R I D G E
You say you don’t want a revolution
But if you’re not a part of the problem
You’ll never be a part of the dissolution

I N S T R U M E N T A L

P R E - C H O R U S 3
I need to rock the boat
You sink so I can float
Thank you for playing your part

C H O R U S
If it ain't yours, take it
If it ain't true, fake it
If it ain't broke, break it

L A S T C H O R U S
Nest o’ hornets, shake it
Sleepin’ giant, wake it
If it ain't broke, break it
If it ain't broke, break it
