"the world as we know it is not gonna last forever and these could be the last days, so let's spend them together, and let's NEVER SURRENDER!"


it's been raining for a couple of days now
and my dad's pond is overflowing
the orange fish are at the back door
the toxic flood-water is glowing
and we shake our heads
and get in the car
forget those things we said
making love under the stars stars

i go back and forth daily about us-and-them
and who's really to blame
but i think it's pretty clear who has got the most to gain
from a divided up society that's terrified of honesty
and we can't discern our enemies
so we give them our complicity

they make beer, and we buy it
they make cars, and we drive them
they build walls, we just give in
they build boxes that we live in
they make gods for us to pray to
jobs to give our days to
binaries of gender
but they can't have our surrender

we look at the world around us
and everything we see is crazy
so we drink and we smoke and we watch the tv
they say "don't take your life so seriously"
i say this is the only way i know how to be

‘cause we need passion not fashion
we need food not lawns
we need action not factions
we need everyone here to be singing along
we need stories not glory
we need friends not fans
we need guitars not rock stars
we need more than just loud drunk straight white male punk bands
let's destroy out of love
and build out of anger
get our heads out of our asses
and see our lives are in danger

because the world as we know it
is not gonna last forever and these could be the last days
so lets spend them together
and let's never surrender
