All I Want [Live]
by The Offspring



Day after day your home life's a wreck
The powers that be just
Breathe down your neck
You get no respect
You get no relief

You gotta speak up
And yell out your piece
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
'Cause I'm sick of not living

To stay alive
Leave me alone
I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled

That's all I want
All I want
How many times is it gonna take
'Til someone around you hears what you say

You've tried being cool
You feel like a lie
You've played by their rules
Now it's their turn to try

So back off your rules
Back off your jive
'Cause I'm sick of not living
To stay alive

Leave me alone
I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want

All I want
I said it before
I'll say it again
If you could just listen

Then it might make sense
