The Sand In The Gears

Be More Kind - 4:04
Can’t I just spend the next four years at a punk show?
I want to spend the next four years in the front row.
Because if the world outside is going to shit,
You will find me in the centre of the circle pit.
I want to spend the next four years at a punk show.

Can’t I just spend the next four years getting wasted?
Maybe if I drink enough whisky shots I can face it.
Because if we’re welcoming in World War Three,
I’m waving goodbye to my sobriety.
I want to spend the next four years getting wasted.

What do we do if they don’t represent us?
What do we do?
I thought that we were winning the war
Against the homophobes and the racists.
You can’t be serious man,
Awe can’t be this fucked...
Well I’m sorry friends,
I guess it’s time to suck it up.
Don’t go giving up now,
Here’s what we do:

We can’t just spend the next four years in a safe space.
I’m going to spend the next four years getting outraged.
Every single day, let’s find a brand new way
To let the motherfuckers know that we can’t be swept away.
I’m going to spend the next four years on the barricades.

A change is going to come, and there’s nothing to be done.
A change is going to come;
The only thing to decide is which way you’re going to jump.
So don’t give into the hatred,
Don’t give into the fear,
Pour yourself a shot of anger to go with your beer.

Let’s be the sand in the gears for the next four years.
Trust me, it’s going to be a long four years.
