lyrics

Degenerate I’m not a degenerate (x3)
No

When I’m feeling bad
I want to dress in black
Sneak around like a ninja
Maybe chuck a brick through a window
When I’m feeling down
I like to drive around town
Block everything out
With the radio loud
With the radio loud

But I’m no degenerate
I’m not greedy - I’m not a user
I’m no degenerate
Not a cheater - not a killer
I’m no degenerate
Not stealing, wheeling and dealing
I’m no degenerate
and I don’t need your stamp on my head

So don’t put the judge on me
If I don’t smile pretty
I’m just trying to survive
Find a reason to stay alive
If I disturb your peace
Just let me pass on by
Don’t call the police
They just might shoot me down
Just for playing my radio loud

But I’m no degenerate
I’m not greedy - I’m not a user
I’m no degenerate
Not a cheater - not a killer
I’m no degenerate
Not stealing, wheeling and dealing
Not trying to fight, I’m just blocking you out
With the radio loud

[BRIDGE]
[CHORUS]

I’m not trying to fight, I’m just blocking you out
with the radio loud

I got my radio loud
I got the KOOP and the Radio 101
I got the KVRX playing that sick metal
I got the KAOS
