never said it would be like this right

everyone says that they're better
everyone says that they're strong
everyone tries to intimidate
they're probably right all along

but they're all fighting
putting us down
tattoos on motorcycles
don't want us in their town

so many times that i've been told
to change for the sake of blind hellos
one thing i learned in
all of these lies
all of these days
all of these cries

words come back
words come back
words come back to you
they come back to you
words come back
and haunt you someday
and haunt you someday
haunt you

torn out in the side of ways
you see our name
torn out please get out of the way
you see our name
dedede(?) side of ways
you'll see our name
you'll never escape it, it's your name

its your name
its your
its your name
its your
its your name
its your
its your name
its your name
its your name
words come back
words come back to you
they come back at you
they come back at you
its your name
its your name

(I tried to decode these lyrics by ear because I didn't find any on the internet yet. Thus this is by no means done without mistakes because it isn't easy to hear and i'm no native speaker. If you hear it better, please feel free to correct me.)

    General Commenti have thought about it for quite a while now, and i'm totally serious about it: this is the best punk rock song ever written.

    General Commentfirst song i heard of theirs, and i only have the album 'every song', which is quite different, but still brilliant. best punk song, just might be.
    as for the meaning, just about people bein dicks to eachother? i know the whole hip hop thing wasnt really as big as it is now, but that first stanza totally makes me think of rappers - all claiming to be the flyest, toughest guys around. i dunno.
    fantastic song
