The Lyrics

I am friends with a few 'emo' people but they aren't stereotypical. They don't cut and go on about how horrible their lives are. They are fun people to be around and are usually trying to make ME feel better. This is directed to the idiots that have think they are emo cuz they slit their wrists and flaunt it. And think they are emo cuz they listen to Hawthorn Heights and write 'cut my wrists and black my eyes' on every piece of paper they can find.
Stop stabbin' your arm
Cuz you're to blame
You give emo a bad name

Female pants, is what you wear
Covered in make-up, rediculous hair
Chains and 'cuffs, what does it mean?
When posers you are, admit you liked Britney

Bridge: Whoa! There's so many of you
Yeah, whoa...
There's no where to run
No one can save me
From these city bums

Chorus: Stop stabbin' your arm
Cuz you're to blame
You give emo a bad name
Three years ago, they weren't like you
You give emo a bad name
You give emo, a bad name

I swear to God, guys look like chicks
Long black nails on their fingertips
An straigtedge student, now is bi
Due to the fact society told them to

Bridge + Chorus X3
Yes, the last line was crap
