lyrics

PUNK ROCK died a long time ago,
I'm just picking up the pieces as I go.
Trying to find some good rebellious bits through
all this prejudice and fucking bullshit.
You're not making it any better,
you're not making our lives any easier.
Pumping out your constant bigotry.
You couldn't mean a single fucking thing to me.

If this is what PUNK ROCK is,
PUNK ROCK kids insulting other kids then I hate myself.

Wicked words aren't the weapons of weekend worriers,
they're the tools of the oppressors and why is always women's voices and minorities being trodden on first
and stamped into the fucking dirt.
And I know I'm part of the privileged few,
and I'm sorry to each and every one of of you.
For getting in your way, taking up your time,
with my shitty words and meaningless rhymes.

If this is what PUNK ROCK is,
PUNK ROCK kids insulting other kids then I hate myself.
And I sure as hell, hate everybody else as well,
as well.
And being offensive doesn't make you anything but an arsehole,
You're and arsehole and everyone knows it.

Not everything that comes out of your month is god-awfully pretty,
We don't think you're worth the energy.
There's hundreds of your brethren waiting in the wings,
and it's not our right to stop you saying these god-awful things.
Living in the age of online anonymity,
Targeted advertising, neo-liberal anarchy.
We like people, isn't that enough?
I guess we don't fit in your very narrow description of what it means to be a PUNK.

If this is what PUNK ROCK is,
PUNK ROCK kids insulting other kids then I hate myself.
And I sure as hell, hate everybody else as well,
as well.
And being offensive doesn't make you anything but an arsehole,
You're and arsehole and everyone knows it.
