about

I don't listen to pop radio much at all. So I missed when this Kelly Clarkson song first came around. But when it was used in an episode of Doom Patrol, MAN OH MAN did it get everyone's attention.

lyrics

(spoken)
We come into this world unknown
But know that we are not alone
They try and knock us down
But change is coming, it's our time now

Hey, everybody loses it
Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes
And hey, yeah I know what you're going through
Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive

Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Hey, this is not a funeral
It's a revolution, after all your tears have turned to rage
Just wait, everything will be okay
Even when you're feeling like it's going down in flames

Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
You've just gotta turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

They can't do nothing to you, they can't do nothing to me
This is the life that we choose, this is the life that we bleed
So throw your fists in the air, come out, come out if you dare
Tonight we're gonna change forever

Everybody loses it
Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
We're all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh, woah-oh-oh, woah-oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us
