the kids sing out in defiance
against the world that has forgotten them
and the media asked why are the kids so angry

afterwards they'll go back home
to their uncaring fathers
and misunderstanding mothers
and they'll dream of a time that
they're back again with all their friends
at another show

where they will sing
these are the days
these are the days we will never forget

Sixteen and all alone
searching for a place to call her home
thinking by the bottle
or maybe even worse

but she passed her self destruction
when she found a better place
at the show with the kids
the excitement of change

singing along with every kid in the crowd
she breathed in deep and she sang aloud

these are the days
these are the days
these are the days we will never forget

he was never called cool
no he never fit in
cuz he thought for himself
and he went against the trends

but the abuse at school
was finally setting in yeah
so the day he found a place to go
with the other punk rockers at the punk rock show

he showed up to the show with his new allies
he forgot about school
as tears came to his eyes

and he said
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days we will never forget
no

sitting under the corner light
my sixth string in my hand
play my songs all by myself
thinking there's no one out there could understand

but it wasnt too long before
i realized i was wrong
and i found myself singing from a stage
a chorus of voices singing along

and we sang
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days we will never forget
yeah we sang
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days we will never forget
we will never forget

    General CommentI like this song, Justin Sane is good at writing lyrics and getting the point across in song ... his voice is rugid and not quite smoothed over but that's what I love about it ... plus this is a god song just to chill to ... it describes what people feel and tells a story at the same time ...

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is pretty clear. It's about kids and even Justin himself finding a place in the punk scene and a place to belong. I'm sure many kids can relate to this, because for many of us our entry into the punk scene was similar to the stories he tells.

    I myself can really relate to the third verse. That one really touches me because it's so close to what i felt.

    General CommentI want to buy the CD but I'm too poor. I'm sure I could download it and not feel like a scum since the music is more about what's being said than the money.
