it’s saturday lyrics – king missile

i want to be different, like everybody else
i want to be like
i want to be just like all the different people

i have no further interest in being the same
because i have seen difference all around
and now i know that that’s what i want

i don’t want to blend in and be indistinguishable
i want to be a part of the different crowd
and *ssert my individuality along with the others
who are different like me

i don’t want to be identical to anyone or anything
i don’t even want to be identical to myself
i want to look in the mirror and wonder
“who is that person? i’ve never seen that person before
i’ve never seen anyone like that before.”

i want to call into question the very idea
that ident*ty can be attached
i want a floating, shifting, ever changing persona
invisibility and obscurity
detachment from the ego and all of its pursuits

unity is useless
comformity is compet*tive and divisive
and leads only to stagnation and death

if what i’m saying doesn’t make any sense
that’s because sense can not be made
it’s something that must be sensed

and i, for one, am incensed by all this complacency
why oppose war only when there’s a war?
why defend the clinics only when they’re attacked?
why are we always reactive?

let’s activate something
let’s f*ck sh*t up
whatever happened to revolution for the h*ll of it?
whatever happened to protesting nothing in particular
just protesting ’cause it’s sat*rday
and there’s nothing else to do?
