I wanna live life duty free, let my instincts take the lead.
I wanna take what I can get, don't wanna choose, don't wanna beg.
I want down from this family tree - I don't need no upward mobility.

I wanna unlearn what I've learned, wanna unearn what I've earned.
Wanna burn my bridges down, find a place I can't be found.
This is my manifesto destiny - tearing down this upward mobility,
'cause I'm tired of standing upright.
The taller we become, the more dollars we can grab from that highest
branch,
and they'll step on your back, given the chance-
but not me, I'm a bipedal backpedalin' just as sure-footed as I can.

I'm no high society man - no suit and tie, no dapper dan.
I'm no happy family man - no husband, ain't no dad.
I'm a goddamn caveman, this upward mobility is more than I can

understand.
I won't stand, no, I won't stand for it...
I'd rather be all hands and knees. Yeah, I'd rather be swingin' in the
trees
with the monkeys and junkies and bums and sloths and jailbirded
canaries,
Yeah, that's me - I'm a bipedal backpedalin' from sea to shining sea.
