No I’m not married or knocked up
don’t care that Holly from high school has a good job
why’s it gotta be all set and backed up?
my vision’s different from yours, but i’m no snob
there’s no timeline, there’s no date
Don’t expect anything now, I can wait
It’ll happen… I think, I hope, I want, I need
I’m not about normal, it’s a rebel creed
Got out of town, went to school
did what that right, but i wanted something more
didn’t just party and be a teenage fool
It’s music, It’s crazy, and it’s my big score
(repeat chorus three times)
This is a song written for The Ballad of Helene Troy called Rebel Creed. I wrote twelve songs for the story. This is probably the most simple and punk based. It follows a standard C/G/F power chord. That’s all I have, music-wise. I cut about 10 words – some I’s and other articles. But you get the jist. It’s also in response to Velvet Verbosity’s 100 word challenge “Rebel” http://www.velvetverbosity.com/ Since I’ve already used Bikini Kill’s Rebel Girl in another post. I’ll drop David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel but use Joan Jett’s version to give you some idea of how this would go in a non-fictional world.
