Parents losing touch with all the teens
No remorse for becoming your son's fiend
Build their trust, then violate it
While your kids are out there, but getting high?
Now your son's got a mind of his own
You cry at night cause he is not your clone
There's a scapegoat, he must be on drugs
Waste your cash on tests
Get out the bugs
Let's get out the bugs

Just a swipe across his desk
Use our fairly accurate test
Weekly gunpoint urination
Makes up for lack of parent-teen communication
Big brother, bigger mother

Just when you thought that it was safe
You thought your parents got used to your ways
Family has conspired to take you out
They bend you til they get what you're about
Parents bought a product, it's not fair
And I know the company don't care
Mismatched results could get it wrong
When they could have the answers all along

I don't wanna talk, just need a cloth
No no no is not enough
You've got a mind of your own
Figure it out:
We are not your clones
Big brother, bigger mother

We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
