The Rebellion Against Social Stereotypes

I'm not conforming to social stereotypes
Being labelled by society
in your definitions of culture

Looking like a popular retail store bought junkie
Wearing clothes to fit into a mould to be accepted
within your judgemental lifestyles

Rebelling against uniformity of tradition

Never will I be categorised

Receiving a stamp of approval
by what I wear and things that I do

Rules telling me how to live
Roles imposed by social structures

Restricting creative expression
Regulations forming a subculture's anxiety

Beginnings of a revolutionary upheaval....
