And liars got that corner now
and they've got flyers everywhere
with ex-school treasures for hire
and whitesnake riffs dressed up like Sid Viscosity
As lice is living in your practice room couch
you're not the only one who's doing without
daddy doctor's son punk rocker shouts
"Dad the A.C.'s broke in our hardcore
punk rock vacation, vacation rehearsal house"
now, now, now
we'll get right on, that, I'm sure it's just the thermostat
I'll buy your band a few twelve packs
but your mother wants her bracelets back

clack, clack, clack
shhhh

    General CommentI think this song is about how modern punk/rock bands have lost sight of what it actually meant to be punk. The song describes a bunch of rich high school drop-outs trying to imitate bands such as the Sex Pistols. The problem lies in the fact that these spoiled yuppies don't really have much to complain about:

    "Dad the A.C.'s broke in our hardcore
    punk rock vacation, vacation rehearsal house"

    If this is the biggest problem in your life then maybe a punk band isn't your thing.

    General CommentI agree completely, Grandaddy used to be punk and the conditions they lived in made it true.
