"No Pride" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Well, I am just a mutt
And nowhere is my home
Where dignity's a land mine
In the school of lost hope
I've panhandled for life
'Cause I'm not afraid to beg
Hand me down your lost and founds
Of second hand regret

You better swallow your pride or
You're gonna choke on it
You better digest your values
'Cause they turn to shit
Honor's gonna knock you down
Before your chance to stand up and fight
Well, I know I'm not the one
I got no pride

Well, sects of disconnection
And traditions of lost faith
No culture's worth a stream of piss
Or a bullet in my face
To hell with unity
Separation will kill us all
Torn to shreds and disjointed
Before the final fall

You better swallow your pride or
You're gonna choke on it
You better digest your values
'Cause they turn to shit
Honor's gonna knock you down
Before your chance to stand up and fight
Well, I know I'm not the one
I got no pride
Shuh!

You better swallow your pride or
You're gonna choke on it
You better digest your values
'Cause they turn to shit
Honor's gonna knock you down
Before your chance to stand up and fight
Well, I know I'm not the one
I got no pride

I got no pride
Close your eyes and die
I got no pride
