lyrics

I’ve never ever seen such a pile of shit,
All these kids are branded by the music industry.
One million likes, yeah, that’s what they like,
Supporting mediocrity because it’s on TV.
And they learn in school how money makes you cool.

Now tell me, how brainwashed can they be
To pretend music sounds better with a black-tie producer,
To sell their words for the sake of audience,
To say they’re punks because they wear a "Punks Not Dead" t-shirt.
And they learn on stage how to look underage.
They learn on stage how to look underage.

I’m sorry (so sorry, sir) but to me, it’s only bullshit!
They play in front of their million likes,
But the words been changed to rhyme with prime-time,
And the set list is always the same, (You never change the songs)
And the ticket price is rising faster than the talent.

It's courtesy of the man behind the desk,
Asking the crowd for royalties cause they sing your lyrics.
And I guess they’ll willingly pay
If you keep saying you love them between every song.
And they’ll send your flowers, you will fade with them.
They’ll send your flowers and you will fade with them.

Your pedestal is nothing but unsound,
You’d better be careful if you fall.
Your music’s not yours,
And your songs can’t be sung along,
You’d better be careful if you fall.
Oh sincerely, we fuck you all,
Tonight we sing it for free.
