For the Krishnacore Bands

You stuck by the scene
But did the scene stick by you?
In a few cases yes
Maybe in one or two

You routinely got called out
By Maximum Rock and Roll
And you were never gonna fit in
At the fireside bowl

But back in the day punks
Practically declaring war
As if there were anything more orthodox than hardcore
As if there were anything more orthodox than hardcore

You stuck to your guns when you were running out of ammo
Even on package tours
Supporting metalcore guys in camp
You find more common threads than you expect to in these places
Always see the holy name light up a few new faces

Back in the day punks
Still with plenty of shit to say
Covertly cashing in
On dead stock of your early demos on ebay

Where were they on the night that you first saved your head?
Drinking beer in some field place with all creation over head
Where were they when the locals were ganging up on you?
Lining up to join up with some nearly identical crew

You stuck it out for several years or maybe you moved on
Nobody’s really sure where giant Vida’s gone
Some say he’s a stunner now creeper dave says that is true
But when you point one finger at the Krishna punks
I got two fingers up for you

But back in the day punks
Singing the same old songs
About the kids that brought the banquet to the matinee
But they preached for a little too long
Yeah! But they preached for a little too long!
