I know you want me to entertain
Don't want me to be lame don't wanna hear me say
Stuff that might sober you up
And make you give a fuck
Too bad, you're out of luck!
Because I'm not that funny of a guy, and besides
I've got too many questions in my mind
Like why do I so often resent the world I'm living in?
And am I boring you yet with the same old shit again?
Did you know that change is within reach?
And it starts with ourselves.
The stuff we learn and the stuff we teach!
The willingness to be honest with ourselves
And everybody else is the first step to cooling this hell
And did you know that music is a very powerful thing?
And lyrics can be more than just mindless singing?
And maybe you can't change the world, but you can change yourself
And the music should be fun, but sometimes there's something else...
Entertainment vs. enlightenment
You learn the words to every single verse
Entertainment vs. enlightenment
But it still doesn't make a dent
Entertainment vs. enlightenment
Somebody took the time to write these lines
Entertainment vs. enlightenment
So think about what they meant yeah,
And did you know that music is a very powerful thing?
And it's a lot more fun than sitting around whacking (I don't know about that)
And maybe you can't change the world, but you can change yourself
And music should be fun, but sometimes there's something else...
The things you call important are making me see red
The patches that you wear and the spikes on your head are nothing but a fashion show
And you judge everyone on a sliding scale of "punk" like you were the first one
You say music with a message is a fucking bore?
I guess it takes away from the punk points you score
But you hate it cause it makes you think I think you hate it cause it makes you think.
