FOR THOSE THAT HATE PUNKS (THE FINGER TO YOU!!) (B.Powell)

I can't take your shit no more
I've worn it like some dirty shirt
You see me as a fucked up thug
And you can't do anything but hurt
With your looks and your words you hurt and destroy
You drag away the kids that you think I annoy
You chew me up and spit me out like an old toy
I ain't what you think!

I'm a punk and I like it
I'm a punk and I like it
I ain't the guy you think you hate
I'm not a sucker who'll take the bait
I'm a punk and I like it


Because I drink a little beer
And go to see some punk rawk bands
You think I'm a sicko who'll bash up your kids
Steal all your money and tear you to shreads
Leave you with nothing but memories and threads
I ain't like that

I'm a punk and I like it
I'm a punk and I like it
I ain't the guy you think you hate
I'm not a sucker who'll take the bait
I'm a punk and I like it


I don't care what society thinks
The lying from you just fuckin' stinks
For those who know me better than you
They can justify that this fact is true

That I'm a punk and I like it
I'm a punk and I like it
I ain't the guy you think you hate
I'm not a sucker who'll take the bait
I'm a punk and I like it


I'm a punk and I like it
I'm a punk and I like it
I ain't the guy you think you hate
I'm not a sucker who'll take the bait
I'm a punk and I like it


"This one's about how just because I look like a punk with my mohawk and Rancid/Clash t-shirts and hematite necklace, people look on me as being someone that would cause harm to people. For one thing I'm totally anti-violence. Secondly, people get this stereotypical image of us and it ain't justified. Frankly, I wear what's comfortable and I don't care what others think." - Brian
