Lyrics
Well I remember at a party
A couple a years ago when I saw an emcee.
He ripped the mic then he passed it to me,
I learned a little lesson, he helped me to see.
It's not about choosing guitar or the decks;
It's doing it yourself that gets the respect.
Stuck like a sign, now was the time
I was ready for the beat, ready for the bassline and boom!
Now we're mixing the sound for the show
So punks say Oi! B-Boys say Bo!
We've seen them come and I've watched the bands go,
I'd better get a dedicated outlook yo.
And that's the reason that we came and add a twist.
I thought that punk was all about the freedom mister!
Don't want to be the sound to tick off your list,
We're bigger than this punk rock.

Well anything we call 'punk rock',
In a category called 'punk rock'.
'Punk rock' is only ever going to be punk rock.
Some things are bigger than punk rock.

Look around,
No, we aren't unified by guitars crashing down.
Revolution is more than sound.
We're better together and still we're going nowhere,
Can't see the wood for the scene.
But in the s***es between lies the truth that we've got
And it's bigger than punk rock.

Anyway, never going to never pin us down,
Any style, play it from a squat to a stage,
Strike Anywhere, spread it about like shareware.
Anyone far beyond little pond, respond,
Yet, this mindset;
Preach the converted, yet we forget
It's just Minor Threats and fanzines are
Empty of meaning if we're not being UK.

Stop pretending that it's not UK.
Not America we're in UK.
Got to sing it like we're from UK
And maybe then we'll find a way.
Look around,
Do we have all the unity we sing of in this crowd?
Revolution is more than sound.

We're better together and still we're going nowhere,
Can't see the wood for the scene.
But in the s***es between lies the truth that we've got
And it's bigger than punk rock.

Round in circles. I can't see this. Revolution.
More than just a sound.

We're better together and still we're going nowhere,
Can't see the wood for the scene.
But in the s***es between lies the truth that we've got
And it's bigger than punk rock.

But in the s***es between lies the truth that we've got
And it's bigger than punk rock.
