One day, you'll be dead and gone
But this world won't be over
So let's build something strong
Something that will last.
When I look around, I can't see
The things that my parents promised me
We've come so far,
but how far have we gone off track?
It's time to look at what we've done.

To me, punk rock means dirty knees, bikes, not cars.
To me, it means being sad when you can't see the stars
At night.
So let's get on our bikes and ride downtown
Climb the Clear Channel billboards
And tear them down.

They say it's a dream,
Well I hope not, 'cause I believe in it.
It's not just a dream to me.
It's not just a dream to me.
It's not just a dream to me.
It's more than just a dream to me.
