I will aspire well beyond the ethical boundaries found in your exclusive subculture for the few, grounded on the resentment bred into you.

Lost in the labyrinth of the indefinable,
Fighting like tortured rats over such an unworthy goal.
Has substance been subverted?
Ambition run its course?
Line up at Hot Topic for your daily packaged dose. What does it mean to gather here,
In this amalgamation of rejects from your peers?
Is it "just another cheap product for the consumer's head"?

And I will aspire to leave your punk rock dream behind,
As long as it lacks courage and fortitude.
I will let you go.
So if you act out of resentment and negativity,
Then the underground scene is just another poor excuse for you.
But I will to...
But I will to...

Are we striving toward a cause,
Or rebelling just because?
We scream "UNITY!", but leave it at the door after the show.
Wasting breath decrying sellouts,
While the tobacco industry makes out--
Funny how the former is the easier course to follow.
What are our values and our moral obligations? Don't feed me straight edge; it's just another well-disguised addiction.
Are we "chicken shit conformists like our parents"?

And I will aspire to leave your punk rock dream behind,
As long as it lacks courage and fortitude.
I will let you go.
So if you act out of resentment and negativity,
Then the underground scene is just another poor excuse for you.

Such a precocious war we wage.
"Give up, give in": the enemies we keep at bay.

I will let you go.

And I will aspire to leave your punk rock dream behind,
As long as it lacks courage and fortitude.
I will let you go.
So if you act out of resentment and negativity,
Then the underground scene is just another poor excuse for you.

It's time to break this down.
I'm gonna break...
