posing for the cameras/ posing for the postcards/ we lower ourselves to parody of what society wants us to be/ they don't want to know that punk means freedom/ they would rather see us fighting each other as we do on the TV screen/ but don't forget that we don't want your money and we don't need your glory/ we become less than nothing ourselves/ are you a punk?/ than be proud of yourself/ tell them to fuck off/ i saw a thing last night/ the punks got caught up in the glory of the camera/ they were making a mockery of themselves/ starting fights in the pit pretending to be something they weren't/ never pretend to be something you're not/ don't be afraid to show who you are/ don't let yourself be used/ don't forget that we are above them/ they are less than nothing to us/ remember that society fucking hates us/ we are the fucking pukes/ don't let them ever forget...

    General CommentIt's about how punks were portrayed on TV at the time. They were shown as being little more than violent thugs, rather than (for the most part) intelligent individuals with something to say.
