Old punks don’t die… (321)

…they just cash in. Another Interpreting Lyrics post.

I should have known our time had come and gone
Just move aside and let the young punks ride
The wave of adulation, in complete capitulation
We had our day is there anything left to say?

Old punks don’t die
They just cash in

I should have seen the videos on the screen
Selling out our souls for platinum green
Radio friendly and marketability, the new language of the scene
Punk was finally “In” said Rolling Stone and Spin

Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.
Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.

I must admit
I don’t go in the pit like I used to anymore
Stealing the bands beer to share out on the floor
I try to hang out, but i tire faster now

Yes I still believe
I have that punk disease
But fighting in the streets is so hard on the feet
I find my support greater smoozing backstage.

Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.
Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.
Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.
Old punks don’t die
They just cash in.
