Electable (Give It Up) Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

I came up like everyone
They taught us all the same
I said what they told me to say
And then from that they grade

Give up repeating the facts
Fact can be arranged
Here I am, I'll take my chance
Now play the record straight

Give it up
Give it up

Talking points from talking heads
With automotive smiles
Now there's no higher ground to stand
Than bottom of the pile

Give up acting unaware
You can't ignore the crime
The enemy is you as well
The enemy is I

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up
Give it up

Not in my name
You don't speak for me
I am my voice
And I wanna scream

You want my air
You want my life
I act as one
But I'm not alone

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up
Give it up

Give it up
