People always try to second guess you
They don’t want to ever hear the truth
Feels like no one, no one really gets you
They think you’re lost or just confused

When they’re coming on, coming on strong
When they’re bringing you, bringing you down
When they’re making you feel like you’re wrong
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you

Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Lurking in the darkness
Hiding in the shadows
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Waiting for you to fall
Hit the ground then stand tall
Don’t let the bastards get you down, down, down
Don’t let the bastards get you down, down, down

You don’t need permission to be brilliant
Who cares what those motherfuckers say
Turn their heads to the right side of history
You’re perfect and you’ll always be that way

When they’re coming on, coming on strong
When they’re bringing you, bringing you down
When they’re making you feel like you’re wrong
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you

Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Lurking in the darkness
Hiding in the shadows
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Waiting for you to fall
Hit the ground then stand tall
Don’t let the bastards get you down, down, down
Don’t let the bastards get you down, down, down
Don’t let the bastards get you down

Don’t let the bastards get you
Don’t let the bastards get you
Don’t let the bastards get you
Get you down  (I said)
Don’t let the bastards get you
Don’t let the bastards get you
Don’t let the bastards get you
Get you down

When they’re coming on, coming on strong
When they’re bringing you, bringing you down
When they’re making you feel like you’re wrong
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you

Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Lurking in the darkness
Hiding in the shadows
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let them get to you
Don’t let the bastards get you down
They’ll always be around
Waiting for you to fall
Hit the ground then stand tall
Don’t let the bastards get you down
Don’t let the bastards get you down
Don’t let the bastards get you down
Don’t let the bastards get you down
Don’t let them get to you
