Cornered in the alleyway, back street kids live for today
We're kinda weird to you, you can't stand anything we do
We have the right to choose, 'cause were born to lose
We may be fucking sick, at least we know were free

My mind is not for rent, I won't listen to what you say
You better take a hard look, we are sick of your fucking rules
By the ink on my skin, you can see that im the real thing
Up the fucking punx, our sound is fucking strong

Proud to be punk
We don't give a fuck
Proud to be punk, whoa
Up the punx!

Cornered in the alleyway, back street kids live for today
We're kinda weird to you, you can't stand anything we do
We have the right to choose, 'cause were born to lose
We may be fucking sick, at least we know were free

My mind is not for rent, I won't listen to what you say
You better take a hard look, we are sick of your fucking rules
By the ink on my skin, you can see that im the real thing
Up the fucking punx, our sound is fucking strong

Proud to be punk
We don't give a fuck
Proud to be punk, whoa
Up the punx!

You can put us down, you can call us fucking names
Try to divide us by trying to classify us
Call me fucking names, tell me punk is dead
The more you try to bring us down the stronger we will get

Cornered in the alleyway, back street kids live for today
We're kinda weird to you, you can't stand anything we do
We have the right to choose, 'cause were born to lose
We may be fucking sick, at least we know were free

My mind is not for rent, I won't listen to what you say
You better take a hard look, we are sick of your fucking rules
By the ink on my skin, you can see that im the real thing
Up the fucking punx, our sound is fucking strong

Proud to be punk
We don't give a fuck
Proud to be punk, whoa
Up the punx!

    General Commentdear Underthegun89, im sorry but u sound like some fuckin hippie who just got beaten up by a punk lol, how the fuck could they be nazi? the singer is from equador u dipshit, and also u sound like some 15 years old kid who cant get into a club to see a show or some kid whos mum wont allow to get a mowak...the thing is each band has their thing, imagine if every punk band only talked about politics?
    there are some political bands that are great , anti-flag, propagandhi, subhumans, conflict and some are just rubbish like crass...so do ur homeworkd, its gettin late

    General Commentdiypunx, you're being ridiculous. How does being from a certain country dictate that they can't be Nazi?! Nazis can be from anywhere in the world, its about beliefs not where you're heritage. Also how are Antiflag, the punk band that make CAsualties look like idiots, "communist" ...? Brush up on the old politics, mate

    General Commenthas anyone even considered that maybe the line about the ink on his skin might be making a subtle jab at how people tend to sterotype? The prejudice against punk is huge so maybe he's saying "I know you're consider me a snot nosed brat cuz of how i look, but i don't care!". I think you are getting far too caught up in all of this you guys. but's that my opinion.
