The Lyrics

Okay, so I know this isn't the best one I've done, but still It's kinda funny and I would like people to comment. Thanx and I hope you like it!
Well everything is just not how I want it to be
First I was runnin from the cops cuz I thought this stuff was free
Now I pretend that I am not the criminal I am
Stealing item after item just cuz I think I can
I think that they got tired of my lies and they're just
(Saying I'm a troubled youth)
I don't wanna go to jail, So I'm

(Hiding away from you)
"Hands behind your back now."
(I don't wanna be hand cuffed so let me go)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Let me take back my life,I'd rather shop lift alone)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Anywhere on my own where I can steal)
"Hands behind your back now."
(This is all a dream, it's not real)

I remember when they gave me gifts
Gave me money and said that I just should not shop lift
Rember going to the station time and time again
I only got caught cuz I wasn't really fittin in
A rag picker in an expensive store And I'm
(Hiding away from you)
But the more I take the more I break cuz I'm

(Hiding away from you)
"Hands behind your back now."
(I don't wanna be hand cuffed so let me go)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Let me take back my life,I'd rather shop lift alone)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Anywhere on my own where I can steal)
"Hands behind your back now."
(This is all a dream, it's not real)

This isn't what I wanted to do I never thought that what I stole would have me runnin from you
Eat this
This isn't what I wanted to do I never thought that what I stole would have me runnin from you
Eat this
This isn't what I wanted to do I never thought that what I stole would have me runnin from you
Eat this
This isn't what I wanted to do I never thought that what I stole would have me runnin from you
Eat this
Eat this

(Sh*t!)
"Hands behind your back now."
(I don't wannna be hand cuffed so let me go)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Let me take back my life I'd rather shop lift alone)
"Hands behind your back now."
(Anywhere on my own where I can steal)
"Hands behind your back now."
(This is all a dream)
(This is all a dream, it's not real)

I really like LP and immitation is the greatest form of flattery..... however.... just 'cuz u changed a few words doesn't make this funny. I, for one, appreciated your effort. I think this needs more work. Try taking larger risks with your writing. Your pacing may not be what you're used to but perhaps you'll appreciate your work more with a greater effort..... pacing will come later.

I like Linkin Park too I wasn't dissing them or anything. It was just an easy song to make fun of.
