lyrics

What was the point of bands like The Damned, The DK’s and The
Clash
When mainstream radio was run by super groups?
Punk Rock’s a force for change, it’s dangerous, it always was and should be
How soon we all forget where the movement started from?

Politics belong in Punk Rock
Politics are the foundations of Punk Rock
Just because we don’t agree doesn’t have to mean we can’t be friends
That’s the point. We have our own opinions
Punk Rock should make you think

I’m sure you’ve noticed crazy people on both sides
Social justice is important, but let’s not lose our fucking minds
And calling people “snowflakes” makes you look like you’re a jerk
Holy shit...(EVERYONE SUCKS!)
Nobody ever shuts up, they drive us all berserk

But we need an open forum of discussion
We need a place where everyone is free to speak their minds
We lose sight of the truth when we silence those who disagree
Freedom of speech only works when you are truly free

Politics belong in Punk Rock
Politics are the foundations of Punk Rock
Just because we don’t agree doesn’t have to mean we can’t be friends
That’s the point. We have our own opinions
Punk Rock should make you think

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up, pick it up Pick it up-up-up!

Politics belong in Punk Rock
Politics are the foundations of Punk Rock
Just because we don’t agree doesn’t have to mean we can’t be friends
That’s the point. We have our own opinions
Punk Rock should make you think

Politics belong in Punk Rock
Politics are the foundations of Punk Rock
Just because we don’t agree doesn’t have to mean we can’t be friends
That’s the point. We have our own opinions
PUNK ROCK SHOULD MAKE YOU THINK!
