Cooler than thou attitudes. You act like you're all so fucking perfect. I hate the way you dance. Scrub the X's off your hands and step in the emo door. You don't have to play, just stare at your amps as you sit on the floor. If you're so pure, why do you smile and say hi to us at all the shows? And if you're so pure, why don't you save it cuz we all fucking know. If you're so pure, protest or do whatever you can. But if you're so pure, stop calling yourselves a hardcore band. You've lost your punk points. You've broken the #1 rule: Talkin' shit about others who could care less about your views. In it for the trend. Just keep telling yourselves you care and every six months or so, change your identity like the color of your hair.
