The stories that I've heard,
of days that are gone
Make me so sad for our scene because it’s gone
No one seems to get it,
Shows are just like fights,
When fists are thrown over words,
Nobody is right.

Lost in a photo,
A photo stained with time,
Caged in a crack in the back of your mind
The doors that we’ve opened when the windows shut us out.
The voices we’ve used when we were told not to shout.

I wish that we would get it,
What it’s all about,
I wish that we were more than just another crowd.

I really want it back,
The new deal is through,
The way that they hung out back in 1982.

I’m gonna make a change and I’m going to start with me,
The 1980’s punk scene was a better place to be.
If more people tried maybe we’d have more fun,
Let’s take it all back to those days that are done.

Back in the 80’s,
I wish I had been there,
A time when people weren’t judged on the way they wore their hair.
A time that I hold sacred,
I don’t know where it went,
A time that taught me so much,
So many don’t know what it meant.

Lost in a photo,
A photo stained with time,
Caged in a crack in the back of your mind
The doors that we’ve opened when the windows shut us out.
The voices we’ve used when we were told not to shout.

I wish that we would get it,
What it’s all about,
I wish that we were more than just another crowd.

I really want it back,
The new deal is through,
The way that they hung out back in 1982.

I’m gonna make a change and I’m going to start with me,
The 1980’s punk scene was a better place to be.
If more people tried maybe we’d have more fun,
Let’s take it all back to those days that are done.

It used to be a movement that wasn’t going to fail,
Now a days it’s all recycled,
Everything is stale.
So much separation so eager to fight.
Learn from all that’s happened,
Learn to make it right.

Lost in a photo,
A photo stained with time,
Caged in a crack in the back of your mind
The doors that we’ve opened when the windows shut us out.
The voices we’ve used when we were told not to shout.

I wish that we would get it,
What it’s all about,
I wish that we were more than just another crowd.

I really want it back,
The new deal is through,
The way that they hung out back in 1982.

I’m gonna make a change and I’m going to start with me,
The 1980’s punk scene was a better place to be.
If more people tried maybe we’d have more fun,
Let’s take it all back to those days that are done.
