Song Description

Fast-paced alternative pop-punk electronica in the vein of Blondie, Patti Smith and Garbage. Feel-good, vengeful!

Story Behind the Song

The song is about reclaiming individuality and not allowing bullies to mould us into something we are not.

Lyrics

JUST COS YOU SAY SO

VERSE 1
DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO DO; I AM NOT AN EXTENSION OF YOU
DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO SAY; I'LL ARTICULATE IN MY OWN WAY
DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO FEEL; WHEN NOTHING THAT YOU KNOW IS REAL
DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO WEAR; FASHION NEVER REALLY WAS YOUR FLAIR

CHORUS
EVERY LITTLE ONE AN INDIVIDUAL, BLIND - YOU HIDE BEHIND YOUR INDIFFERENCE
EVERY SINGLE ONE IS AN ORIGINAL, BLISS? TO HIDE BEHIND YOUR IGNORANCE
AND I WON'T DO WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO FEEL, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE- JUST COS YOU SAY SO.

VERSE 2
I TOLD YA -
DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO THINK, WHAT? YOU THINK YOUR SHIT DON'T STINK?
AND DON'T YA TELL ME WHAT TO BE, AW, THE BIG BAD BULLY WANTS TO CENSOR ME

CHORUS

MIDDLE 8
WHAT ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF?
IT TOOK SO VERY LONG TO SEE PAST YOUR INSECURITY
YOUR ARMOUR SHOWS A CHINK -
ANY LIGHT GETTIN' IN? TO STOP YOU TAKING YOUR DARKNESS OUT ON ME
YOU HAVE NO, CONTROL O-... VER THIS, I'M DONE
STROKING YOUR VANITY

FINAL CHORUS
EVERY LITTLE ONE AN INDIVIDUAL, BLIND - YOU HIDE BEHIND YOUR INDIFFERENCE
EVERY SINGLE ONE IS AN ORIGINAL, BLISS - TO HIDE BEHIND YOUR IGNORANCE,
AND I WON'T DO WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO FEEL, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE,
WHO YOU WANT ME TO SEE, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO WEAR, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO SAY, HOW YOU WANT ME TO PLAY,
WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BELIEVE, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO CONCEIVE, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO ACHIEVE, HOW YOU WANT ME TO BREATHE,
HOW YOU WANT ME TO LIVE, HOW YOU WANT ME TO DIE, HOW YOU WANT ME TO CRY AND HOW YOU WANT ME TO LIE, JUST COS YOU SAY SO

BACKING VOCALS
