She says she's read too many fashion magazines
She's forgotten what real love is like
And as the basement collects more kids off the street
They smoke themselves to death waiting for the band to begin

They have been tuning up there for an hour now
And I don't think I can stand another minute more
Just then the first chord strums and the drums set in
And I know what I have been waiting around for

'Cause no one's going home until the morning comes
No one's gonna sleep until the sun comes up
Did you hear those first two songs? They were fucking tough
And the band is not going to stop until the cops show up

So hold your applause until the end
And wait for the sadness to set in
'Cause that's the only feeling that's worth it

He say he's done with the pop music scene
There's too many opinions and so few are worth a shit
He has got to learn to act a little more mean
'Cause the mean ones always end up with the record deals

And it is only when I'm angry that I feel complete
When we are screaming at each other is when I am most happy
I hang out with my friends and then I get depressed
And I drink myself to sleep with any strength that is left

And I quit going to church a year ago
And my teachers thinks that my faith is gone
But I can do without the Eucharist
I found God in a Solid Jackson song, song
