i was a teenage anarchist lyrics – against me!

i was a teenage anarchist

i was a teenage anarchist, looking for a revolution.
i had the style, i had the ambition.
i read all the authors, i knew the right slogans.
there was no war but the cl*ss war.
i was ready to set the world on fire.
i was a teenage anarchist, looking for a revolution.

do you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?

i was a teenage anarchist, but the politics were too convenient.
in the depths of their humanity all i saw was bloodless ideology.
and with freedom as the doctrine, guess who was the new authority?
i was a teenage anarchist, but the politics were too convenient.

do you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?

i was a teenage anarchist, but then the scene got too rigid.
it was a mob mentality, they set their rifle sights on me.
narrow visions of autonomy, you want me to surrender my ident*ty.
i was a teenage anarchist, the revolution was a lie.

do you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?

i was a teenage anarchist.
