It 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
Now we gotta figure out
Where to go
I caught it at a rave
(did it give you vaccination?)
I saw it on my T. V.
(did it lighten up your load?)
And every fucking D. J.
(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 again
(was it all a bunch of hype?)
You say, "I'm losing inspiration
one band at a time
I gotta know there's someone, somewhere, out there
singing for our side. "
Where I come up, we share the mortar and the glue
and what we build together, we share that too
and the wing may come, and the rain may fall
but we stand together, or we don't stand at all
where are you going to now
now that the goings gone?
So heres to your survival
and swimming up the stream
crossing over one dam after another
until we get to Rock and Roll Heaven's Gate

Icaught it at a rave
(did it give you vaccination?)
I saw it on my T. V.
(did it lighten up your load?)
And every fucking D. J.
(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
