Didn't happen for you
No one wants to hear the truth
Coming from three political queers
Plucking the punk rock bloom

So you break up the band
And leave us all in tow
Yeah, now we gotta figure out where to go

I caught it at a rave
(Did it give you vaccination?)
I saw it on my TV
(Did it lighten up your load?)
And every fuckin' DJ
(Did you feel affilliated?)
Is telling me I'm free
(Like you really had a home)

Free to be a loser
(Were the ticket prices too high?)
Free to be a trend
(Were the lights too bright?)
Free to be a backlash over and over and over again
(Was it all a bunch of hype?)

You say, I'm losing inspiration one band at a time
Because I gotta know there's someone
Somewhere out there singing for our side

I come up, we share the mortar and the glue
What we build together, we share that too
And the wind may come and the rain may fall
But we stand together or we don't stand at all and I say

Where are you going to now?
Now that the going's gone
Where are you going to now?

Here's to, here's to your survival
And swimming up the stream
Crossing over one dam after another
Until we get to rock and roll Heaven's gate

I caught it at a rave
(Did it give you vaccination?)
I saw it on the TV
(Did it lighten up your load?)
And every fucking DJ
(Did you feel affiliated?)
Is telling me I'm free
(Like you really had a home)

Free to be a loser
(Were the ticket prices too high?)
Free to be a trend
(Were the lights too bright?)
Free to be a backlash over and over
Until I get to rock and roll Heaven's gate
