i'll tell you about pUNk ROCK
a word used by dILETTANTes
music that takes up the energies and the bodies and the hERATS and the souls
of YOUNG men
who give what they have to it
everything they have
a term that's based on contempt
everything that's ROTTEN about rock'n'roll
i don't know johnny roiTten
blood and sweat
you see, what sounds to you like a big load of trashy old NOISE
is in fact
the brilliant music of a genius
it's quite beyond my control
i don't feel pleasure and I don't feel pain
do you understand what I'm talking about?
have you ever felt like that?
couldn't feel anything and you didn't want to either
you know? like that?
do you understand what i'm saying sir?
so you're 40
