  • Storming through the party like my name was El Nino
    Well I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El camino
    As a kid, was a skid and no one knew me by name
    I trashed my own house party 'cause no body came

    Well I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school
    Never going, never showing up when we had to
    Attention that we crave don't tell us to behave
    I'm sick of always hearing act your age

    I don't want to waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down

    Because you don't
    Know us at all we laugh when old people fall
    But what would you expect with a conscience so small
    Heavy metal and mullets is how we were raised
    Maiden and Priest were the Gods that we praised

    'Cause we like having fun at other peoples expense and
    Cutting people down is just a minor offense then
    It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn
    I'm sick of being told to wait my turn

    I don't want to waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down

    Don't count on me, to let you know when
    Don't count on me, I'll do it again
    Don't count on me, it's the point you're missing
    Don't count on me, 'cause I'm not listening

    Well I'm a no-goodnick lower middle class brat
    Back packed and I don't give a shit about nothing
    You be standing on the corner talking all that kerfluffin'
    But you don't make sense from all the gas you be huffing
    'Cause if the egg don't stain, you'll be ringing off the hook
    You're on the hit list, wanted in the telephone book
    I like songs with distortion, to drink in proportion
    The dentist said my mom should have had an abortion

    I don't want to waste my time
    Become another casualty of society
    I'll never fall in line
    Become another victim of your conformity
    And back down

    Waste my time with a
    Casualty of society
    Waste my time with a
    Victim of your conformity
    And back down Writer/s: Dave Baksh, Deryck Whibley, Greig Nori, Steve Jocz

  • Jay from Jackson, Msin his concerts sometimes he'll say "But what would you expect with a dick so small," instead of "Country so small."
  • Scott from Boston, MaI laugh every time I hear "Storming thru the party like my name is El Nino." I don't know why. It makes me think of that one guy at every party who thinks everyone there wants to listen to everything he has to say.
