"Punk Song #2" as written by and Daniel Johns....
I live for yesterday
No one cares or understands
Don't feel pain, I'm made of steel
I can't answer you
If you ask me how I am 'cause I,
I don't know just how I feel

I can feel
Any pain you give me
But I'll take it and throw it away

I'm a hypocrite
But that's okay 'cause I do like it
But I am careful who I burn
I am free falling
With no parachute at all, but
I don't have any concerns

I can feel
Any pain you give me
But I'll take it and throw it away
I will kneel
To any king you give me
But I'll tell you what I'd say

Why are you any better than anyone else ?
Why are you so good ?
Why are you any better than anyone else ?
Why are you so good ?

Why are you any better than anyone else ?
Why are you so good ?
Why are you any better than anyone else ?
Why are you so good

    General Commentnow about the lyrics: it must be about him being pulled down by someone. could be blamed, bullied or dumped... i can't really tell from the lyrics. can anyone? it however seems to me that he is distancing himself from his feelings, being another familiar punk "i don't care" i.o.w. "i try really hard not to care" theme :D. punk song #2, good title and punk rock song. i really like it!

    General CommentHah yea Daniel does have a killer awesome voice, in this song, and in all of them. I just bought the new CD, Diorama, a few weeks ago. It kicks ass.

    General CommentI agree with rubberducky, this song is just more proof that Silverchair has a songwriting gift that transcends genre. they could make a country song that sounded good...with chord progressions and everything...
