There's no use saying that my cities burning
In the place where I live only leaves are burning
No use talking about the man in the street
In the place where I live we don’t feel his heat
There's no use saying that my people are crying
Cause I'd be posing, I’d be lying
No use talking about no revolution
In the place where I live we don’t know smog and pollution
But there's something that I know all about
Cause I’m feeling rejected I’m feeling left out
I kinda hate your guts but I wanna have friends
I wanna feel good even if you pretend
I’m sitting by myself its Saturday night
I could get stoned but I don’t feel right
There's nothing wrong with me it must be all of you
Cause I'm feeling rejected no matter what I do

    General CommentI think in the beginning of the song he's talking about he's talking about the legitimacy of the punk state-of-mind he is in. It's kind of like coming to terms with things and even though he may seem dramatic about his life or cause ("saying that my city's burning," "saying that my people are crying"), it's really not as legit as it seems ("only leaves are burning," "I'd be posing, I'd be lying").

    In the 2nd half of the song he just seems realistic about his situation. He's realizing that he feels rejected and hates everyone at the same time ("I�m feeling rejected I�m feeling left out
    I kinda hate your guts but I wanna have friends"), and part of him does want to "feel good, even if you pretend."
