Laying in my bed tonight - before i got myself up to write this song
2AM-paper/pen - contemplating
The struuggle we're engaged in - does anybody really even care?
But then I thought of your letter and I knew better!
So i'll do it again - yeah i'll sing it again
For my family, myself, my friends, THE KIDS!

Chorus;
Thanks for the letter that you sent
Reminding me not to give in!

"Dear Punk Rock Star,
I'm just kidding - but i like to call you that every now and then just for fun. I like your attitude, I like your songs, I've been a really big fan, since i can't remember when? See there are sometimes that i feel really alone, 'cause I don't really have any friends, and I don't fit in at school. The gym coach called me a "fag" in front of the entire class, so now everyone puts me down by saying i'm gay. But i don't care because I have nothing against homosexuals and the gym teacher is an asshole! I think the things you say are important! Thanks a lot! Keep fighting!"

Chorus(repeat)
