  • Find table spaces, say your social graces
    Bow your head, they're pious here
    But you and I, we're pioneers, we make our own rules
    Our own room, no bias here
    Let 'em sell what they are sellin', there are no buyers here
    So gather all the rebels now, we'll rebel-rouse and sing aloud
    We don't care what they say no way, no way
    And we will leave the empty chairs to those who say we can't sit there
    We're fine all by ourselves

    So hey, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
    No mistakin', we make our breaks, if you don't like our 808s
    Then leave us alone, 'cause we don't need your policies
    We have no apologies for being

    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be alright, don't mind us)
    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be just fine, don't mind us, yeah)
    Find me where the wild things are

    I lose my balance on these eggshells
    You tell me to tread, I'd rather be a wild one instead
    Don't wanna hang around the in-crowd
    The cool kids aren't cool to me
    They're not cooler than we are

    So hey, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
    No mistakin', we make our breaks, if you don't like our 808s
    Then leave us alone, cause we don't need your policies
    We have no apologies for being

    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be alright, don't mind us)
    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be just fine, don't mind us, yeah)

    We will carve our place into time and space
    We will find our way, or we'll make a way (say hey, hey, hey)
    Find you're great, don't you hide your face
    Let it shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine

    So hey, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
    No mistakin', we make our breaks, if you don't like our 808s
    Then leave us alone, 'cause we don't need your policies
    We have no apologies for being

    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be alright, don't mind us)
    Find me where the wild things are (oh my, we'll be just fine, don't mind us, yeah)
