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
