she's a painting outta focus with no good sense of intention she's authentic
she's a model of disaster with a heart of revolution
she's so innocent, but guilty's her plea
everybody wants to save her from herself, they really want to save themselves

she's got the grace of a tourist, with the charm of demolition
she's a poem without a meter or rhyme a random design
of a flower like a rose no one really knows
she's a master piece deserving restoration or condemnation time will tell us
if she's a lifer or a decomposuer she's the rose no one really knows

    General CommentI tore this song apart with dictionary.com, and after finding the meaning of the title (look up Decomm and Poseur) I think it's absolutely brilliant. I've never been as impressed with nofx as I am after looking deeply into this song... Absolutely brilliant.

    General CommentThe first time I really looked at the lyrics of this song I think it reminded me of democracy. Especially after hearing a song like idiots are taking over. Mostly some of the words that popped in there would give me the idea of that, such as revolution.

    General CommentDecomposeur is a play on the word Decomposer, while being it's own word at the same time. Great song. Brilliant, I say!

    General CommentIt does seem to make sense that it is about America. I never caught on to that.

    General CommentI think it's about the punk scene and saying how we'll find out if she's a lifer or a posuer
