Charles Atlas Lyrics

by AFI

You've seen it all a thousand times
(You've seen it all a thousand times)
You've heard it all before
(You've heard it all before)

You've danced the steps
You wrote the rhymes
So passe, too many times
But you're hollow at the core

Two generations passed you by
(Two generations passed you by)
You think there's nothing left
(You think there's nothing left)

But look around and you will see
What our world has grown to be
We are the now, not the past

Can't you even try to see
The strength with which we've built ourselves to be
I know that you will never be
Able to destroy what it's meant to be

You've never seen the likes of us
(You've never seen the likes of us)
We are your novelty
(We are your novelty)

A brand new trend with mass appeal
Don't like the truth, don't like what's real
You're jumping into something you'll never understand

You think that it's a passing phase
(You think that it's a passing phase)
It's our entire life
(It's our entire life)

You revel in rebellious ways
Rebellion that the media made
When you change your channel
We'll smash your TV

Can't you even try to see
The strength with which we've built ourselves to be
I know that you will never be
Able to destroy what it's meant to me

Can't you even try to see
The strength with which we've built ourselves to be
I know that you will never be
Able to destroy what it's meant to me
