Your Straightedge?

This song is about how people think being straightedge is not as good as smoking and drinking and throwing your life away. We don't dislike everyone that is not straightedge, but this is just what we believe. we don't think its right to pay people to kill ourselves... and besides, what kind of peers would we be... preeching about unity and love, you cant find that in drugs.

being made fun of for not doing any drugs
no drinking or smoking, "you straightedge fags are a bunch of fucks"
"you dont know what your missin, its so cool"
no thanks man, i'm not a fucken fool
 
why is it bad to be straightedge?
i dont want to throw my life away
because of that "i'm fucken gay"
well thanks man, i dont know what to say
i'd rather live then throw my life away
 
i cant wait to see your grave in three years
your family's faces letting go those tears
they cant help but be mad under all the sadness
for all the drugs you had and the "good" that came out of it
 
why is it bad to be straightedge?
i dont want to throw my life away
because of that "i'm fucken gay"
well thanks man, i dont know what to say
i'd rather live then throw my life away
 
why is it bad to be straightedge?
i dont want to throw my life away
because of that "i'm fucken gay"
well thanks man, i dont know what to say
i'd rather live then throw my life away
