Looking down the barrel of a gun
Can't see what you have won
Underline putting the emphasis on fun
catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye
of all the traits I try to hide

Don't beat yourself up about the future
just drink yourself into another stupor
We're middle class, white
Suburban males

Nothing that is said or is spoken
Puts the truth in the open
No regrets we don't lie about our sheltered lives
I didn't realise that it mattered
where you came from
Take a look at yourself

Looking down the barrel of a gun
Can't see what you have won
Why try to hide when you might
just as well have been crucified
Why be ashamed when there's nothing that can be done
Take a look at yourself

    General CommentSeems to be a song about Frenzal themsevles and people believing they have no credibility because they didn't come from a broken home or grow up on the streets and therefore aren't allowed to be a punk band.

    Seeing as they started from St Ives High (in a sheltered suburban area of Sydney known as the upper north shore) and this is a fairly early song it makes sense.

    My OpinionIm thinkin they def deserve to play punk... I can definately relate to their aussie sense of humor/ name dropping/ references. It all makes sense to me....
