lyrics

you can't do rock and roll wrong. now that's my fucking way to think. and passion doesn't just come from a simple 3 chord pop punk progression. so stand up and take a look and you'll find yourself in a sea of amazing friends. and it just goes to show that your bank account means nothing to them. it sure doesn't to me or to this diy scene. so what's your score that's been calculated by hollow social norms. and in your heart have you found a place where it seems somewhat clear. where you can rise above and get past creative killing standards today. so let's ascribe new values to our lives. so how can we rate ourselves by numbers and letters and not ignore diversity within ourselves? putting money over mind equates emptiness. when we were young we were told to follow footsteps. but when the foot steps on our dreams it's time to walk away. if we can walk together we can get past those numbers and letters. if we can rock together we will get past those numbers and letters. there's no score. there's too many things our consumer culture just ignores. so in our world let's build a place where it is always clear. where we resist and refute competition and put our value in community. so let's ascribe new values to our lives
