Punk Rock Song (Original: Bad Religion)

Lyric

Have you been to the desert?
Have you walked with the dead?
There's a hundred thousand children
being killed for their bread

And the figures don't lie
they speak of human disease.
But we do what we want
and we think what we please.

Have you lived the experience?
Have you witnessed the plague?
People making babies
sometimes just to escape.

In this land of competition
the compassion is gone.
Yet we ignore the needy
and we keep pushing on.
Keep pushing on!

This is just a punk rock song!
Written for the people
who can see something's wrong
Like ants in a colony we do our share
but there's so many other fucking insects out there.
And this is just a punk rock song!

Have you visited the quagmire?
Have you swam in the shit?
The party conventions
and the real politic.

The face is always different,
the rhetoric the same.
But we swallow it all
and we see nothing changes.
Nothing has changed!

This is just a punk rock song!
Written for the people
who can see something's wrong
Like workers in a factory we do our share
but there's so many other fucking robots out there.
And this is just a punk rock song!

10 million dollars on a losing campaign.
20 million starving and writhing in pain,
Big strong people unwilling to give,
small in vision and perspective!

One in five kids below the poverty line,
one population running out of time.
Running out of time!

This is just a punk rock song!
Written for the people
who can see something's wrong
Like ants in a colony we do our share
but there's so many other fucking insects out there.
This is just a punk rock song!

And the figures don't lie
they speak of human disease.
But we do what we want
and we think what we please.

One in five kids below the poverty line,
one population running out of time.
Running out of time!

This is just punk rock song!
This is just punk rock song!
This is just punk rock song!
