Everyone is on the way out Everyone gets knocked down
Your time has come and gone
Everything fades away and moves on But I'll still be here
In a food pantry in Springfield, Massachusetts
In the Mellow House Garage in Albany, California
In the Cupertino library with Al and Gwen
At the Eco-Action center in Austin
In an abandoned sewage treatment plan in Las Vegas, NV
In the video store in Albuquerque with Scared of Chaka
In the blue chair in Tampa Florida
At the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma
In A field in Dayton Ohio
At Mrs. Neilson's farm outside of El Centro
In the basement of ABC NO RIO
At the Neilhouse in Columbus Ohio
In Little Rock at the Das Youts a Go Go
At the Dick St. House in Greensburough
In Curtis' basement and The Loft in Sacramento
At Marties in Sweet Home Mankato
At the graveyard in Lexington Kentucky
At the baseball diamond in Peaceful Valley
At JJ's Rose Arcade in Rapid City
In the living room at 1640
In an abandoned warehouse in Miami
At Owns Pizza and New Method laundry
At Club Foot and the Farm in the city
At the Dupont circle in Washington DC
Where I can Work the door at 924
Gilman St. in Berkeley
and the People's Park where the food is always free
I'll still be here
Cuz the only ones who know the truth are under 14
They play in a band in a garage in the middle of Missouri
They don't really know how to play but they got some songs
and They got a lot to say
They sing about how racism sucks and the police are fucked
I'll still be here
Oh darlin' you, you got what I need
And you say he's just a friend, but he works for A and M
Oh darlin' you, you got what I need
And you say he's just a friend, but he wants to buy your

    General CommentI think this song was about Fifteen not wanting to get signed by a bigger label, "And you say he's just a friend, but he wants to buy your band". And he talks about "I'll still be here" I think that might be because since they didn't sign he thought they might never go anyplace. I'm probably wrong...

    General Commenti think maybe that has a little to do with it, but it's more about the presence and solidarity of punks and activists all over the country.

    ps. Scared of Chaka rules.
