Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. –H.L. Mencken

Friday Music: Entitlement


Jack White

We don’t deserve a single damn thing.

Every time I’m doing what I want to
Somebody comes and tells me it’s wrong
Whenever I’m doing just as I please
Somebody cuts me down to my knees
Yeah, somebody cuts me down to my knees

In a time when everybody feels entitled
Why can’t I feel entitled too?
Somebody took away my god given right
I guess God must have gave it to you
Yeah, I guess God must have slipped it to you

Stop what you’re doing and get back in line
I hear this from people all the time
If we can’t be happy then you can’t be too
I’m tired of being told what to do
Yeah, I’m sick of being told what to do

There are children today who were lied to
Told the world is rightfully theirs
They can have what they want, whenever they want
They take like Caesar and nobody cares
Live like Caesar and nobody cares

I can’t bring myself to take without penance
Or atonements or sweat from my brow
Though the world may be spoiled and getting worse every day
Don’t they feel like they’re cheated somehow
I feel like I’ve been cheated somehow

Stop what you’re doing and get back in line
I hear this from people all the time
If we can’t be happy then you can’t be too
I’m tired of being told what to do
Yeah, I’m sick of being told what to do

I guess nobody on earth is entitled
Not mothers, not children, not kings
Not a one single person on God’s golden shore
Is entitled to one single thing
We don’t deserve a single damn thing
