​You Can't Hold Me Down

This song is by Shock Therapy and appears on the album Adventures In Good Music (1992).

I cannot begin to see the future
Bright as the light of my mind may be
Spending my hopes on a channel changer
Wasting my life on a fucking TV

If I begin to see that filthy soul
By looking myself in my blood-shoot eyes
Ill smash that image into tiny pieces
Ill smash my life into tiny pieces

I've never gained an ounce of tranquility
Without a pound of self-abuse
Floating through my soul on a river of shit
Drowning my conscience with bad excuse

I will always try to stop waking up
By beating myself with personal sin
I will smash my soul into tiny pieces
Smash my life into tiny pieces

You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down

I've just built myself another system
For stopping the world for coming in
It works like a man with self-respect
But its just a little boy in trouble again

Your sympathy has never been good enough
I can hurt myself better without your help
I want to smash my life into tiny pieces
Smash my life into tiny pieces

You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down

Life is a prison with oxygen walls
Keeping my soul encased in flesh
I've spent my life looking for escape
I'm living out my fear of fun

If I begin to feel my freedom is threatened
If I feel my heart is going soft
I will smash my heart into little pieces
Smash my life into little pieces

You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
