All of the promise but minus the knowledge
Why bother now that they teach punk rock in college
Co-opted culture, misguided intention
Hardcore's extinction almost guaranteed
So gifted and smart, everyone looks so pretty
But where is the danger in hot topic city?
Most of them never get past what's on TV
This demographic has a new obsession
This demographic thinks the singer's cute
This demographic doesn't have a f*cking clue
You say I'm bitter, I'm just jealous
I just resent my lack of success
Why should I even care about this?
Why don't I give it up, accept this?
A shitload of talent, but there is no deep end
Forget about passion, there's none in the bloodstream
Follow a band, what's the point, what's the meaning
Why does everybody f*cking sound the same
They played 15 shows now they're signed to a label
See them look sexy on magazine covers
Make-up applied and they're all photo-friendly
This record label has the perfect roster
This record label has a formula
This record label made you an instant millionaire
