The Lyrics

This is going to sound really cheesy: I wrote this parody for all the pop-punk bands and how they're so viciously, well, ripped up because they're not punk enough. It's like nobody cares about the effort they put into it and the talent they posess.
Punk rock
They say it's not your thing
"The only lyrics
That you can bring
Are the easy things
Of high school breakups back that spring
It's all that you can't leave behind."

And if stereotypes will keep us apart
And if the critics feel like you're a long way off
And if your patience should crack
Before the second you turn back
Oh no, they're wrong

Rock on
Rock on
You're a punk, they can't steal it
No they can't even feel it

Rock on
Rock on
Rock on tonight

You're packing some punk rock that you made
None of us has heard
A song that has to be believed
To be seen

You'll have us blown away
A singing group
At a mosh pit rave
Who will only scream
Only sing for anarchy

Rock on
Rock on
The punk you got
They can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it

Rock on
Rock on
Rock right on tonight

And I know it bites
That you get in fights
With guys that say you're not punk

Rock on
Rock on

"Punk
Hard to know what it is
If you never been one"

Punk
I can't say what it is
But I know you are

Punk
That's who you guys are

And I know it bites
That you get in fights
With guys that say you're not punk
Rock on

Don't give a s***
You've got to not give a s***

All that you scream
All that you sing
All that you write
All that you bring

All that you give it
All that you say
The critic they just don't give a s***

All that you perform
All that you care

It's only time
And I'll never give up on you guys

All that you scream
All that you sing
All you write up
And all that you bring

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate
Please don't rip into me with the comments, okay?
