"Anklebiters" is a song by the American rock band Paramore, and is the tenth track from their self-titled fourth studio album. The song was written by the band's lead singer Hayley Williams, rhythm guitarist Taylor York and Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Hayley Williams told MTV News that this song came from a period of deep introspection and its subject matter helped frame the entire Paramore album. "The title came first, which never happens, but I just thought, I liked the term 'Anklebiters,' when you're talking about kids or babies," she said. According to the band, the song addresses people who can't think for themselves. Williams told Spin: "To me there was this thread throughout the album of wanting to be able to grow up and move forward. And when you do that in your life, there's always people that are going to try to hold you back. Or they're going to try to tell you, 'You don't need to do this, because this is the right way to go.' Or you don't need to grow up, because this or that. And it's about those people, and it's about not listening to that but listening to your heart, and what do you want out of life? Who do you want to be? Versus all this outside influence that I think we get so caught up in, especially in the age of the Internet and all the different opinions that we hear so loudly every day.". Williams explained to Kerrang! Magazine that the song is about "embracing who you are, your differences and quirks. "Some people wanna pull you down and say you're wrong," she continued. "But you keep fighting and say, 'No, this is who I am.'"

Anklebiters - Paramore

Why do you care what people think?
Are you hooked up to their leash?
You know anklebiters
Ate up your personality.

Try to remember how it felt
To just make up your own steps
And let anklebiters
Chew up, spit out someone else.

Fall in love with yourself.

Because someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.
Someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.

Why you wanna please the world
And leave yourself to drop dead?
Someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.

What do you actually expect?
A broken mirror to reflect?
You know, anklebiters
Gave you a false perception.

And why do I defend
(C'mon, c'mon) your ignorance?
Oh, why do I defend
(C'mon, c'mon) the state you're in?

You should fall in love
With yourself, oh, again.
Fall in love with yourself.

Because someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.
Someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.

Why you wanna please the world
And leave yourself to drop dead?
Someday you're gonna be
The only one you've got.

Anklebiters! Anklebiters!
Someday you're gonna be alone!
Anklebiters! Anklebiters!
