Minor Threat
How do you do, I figure we've met
My name is Ian, and I'm from Minor Threat
You know, I count on music to be a good bet
??? after every cent

(Yeah, yeah)

We don't care
We don't pose
We'll steal your money
We'll steal your shows

I've got some money, and I'm feeling fine
A couple of dollars, everything in time
Well you know, I'm gonna be all right
With the money I'm making off of YOU tonight

(Sucker!)

We don't care
We don't pose
We'll steal your money
We'll steal your shows

(You know something?)

The trouble with money, is that I want more
So let's, let's raise the price at the door
How much tonight, three dollars or four?
You know we'll make a million when we go on tour

(Yeah, that's the way I've been thinking about it)

We don't care
We don't pose
We'll steal your money
We'll steal your shows

(You know that's the way it is, man, it's dog-eat-dog, ha ha!)

I'm taking a walk on the yellow brick road
I only walk where the bricks are made of gold
My mind and body are the only things I've sold
I need a little money 'cause I'm getting old

(Well, that's the way it goes, isn't it? Yeah!)

We don't care
We don't pose
We'll steal your money
We'll steal your shows

Yeah, you don't care and we don't pose
We'll steal your money, we'll steal your shows
That's the way it is in this world...right?
Ain't that right?
Boy, you had us pegged all along...damn!

There's no place like home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
So where am I?

There's no place like home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
So where am I?

There's no place like home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
So where am I?

There's no place like home, right?
There's no place like home
So where am I?

There's no place like home
There's no place like home
So where am I?back to top
Stand Up
Life's not been good for you. It's just not fair. You did nothing to deserve
it. You did nothing at all. Sit back and watch. It turns from bad to worse.
No matter how loud you cry it always hurts.
Boy I'm glad I'm not in your shoes.
How could things get any worse for you? You're so fucking alone. How could
tings get any worse for you. I don't blame you. When you piss and moan.
Everybody gets what you should've got. Everybody takes your opportunities.
Everybody gets the breaks that belonged to you. Everybody takes your just
desserts.
Life's not been good for you. It's just not fair. I've got some news for
you. Nothing is fair. I wish there was a way. To make all beter. I pray
for a way. To make you happy. 'Cause I'm sick and I'm tired. Of your
whining, complaining, bitching, etc.back to top
Seeing Red
I'm gonna knock it down anyway that I can. I'm gonna scream. I'm gonna yell.
I don't want to have to use my hands.
(Chorus)
It's like screaming at a wall. Someday it's gonna fall.
You built that wall up around you. And now you can't see out. And you can't
hear my words. No matter how loud I shout.
(Chorus)
You're safe inside and you know it. 'Cause I can't get to you and you know I
resent it. And my temper grows.
You better reinforce those walls. Until you don't have no room to stand.
'Cause someday the bricks are gonna fall. Someday I'm gonna use my hands.back to top
Bottled Violence
Maybe it was no one's fault. I know it wasn't mine. But now that you've
moved along. I guess I'm next in line. I thought we had the same ideas. But
you, you proved me wrong. I've been played the fool before. But never for
quite so long.
(Chorus)
Betray.
So what now? Do we shake hands, and go on our separate ways? Or do I open my
mind, and follow you into the haze? No, I'll see you tomrrow. Same channel,
same time, same place. I'm not going anywhere. 'Cause I quit your fucking
race.
(Chorus)
Goddamit, we were supposed to stay young. And now it's over, it's finished,
it's done. Normal expectations, they were on the run. But now it's over,
it's finished, it's done.back to top
Small Man, Big Mouth
Compete, compete, do it for the boys
Empty barrels make the most noise
You're always on the move
You've always got something to prove

What the fuck are you fighting for?
Is it because you're five foot four?
You better be happy with what you've got
You'll never get any more

You laugh at a man when he tries
You're trying to make up for your size
To you life is a rivalry
Keep a step ahead of me

SMALL MAN, BIG MOUTHback to top
Straight Edge
I'm a person just like you. But I've got better things to do. Than sit
around and fuck my head. Hang out with the living dead. Snort white shit up
my nose. Pass out at the shows. I don't even think about speed. That's
something I just don't need.
(Chorus)
I've got a the straight edge.
I'm a person just like you. But I've got better things to do than sit around
and smoke dope. 'Cause I know I can cope. Laugh at the thought of eating
ideas. Laught at the thought of sniffing glue. Always gonna keep in touch.
Never want to use a crutch.
(Chorus)back to top
Guilty of Being White
[POOR MEMORY--SORRY]
i'm a bored boy born in the road
some say my manners ain't the best
some of my friends they've been in a whole lot of trouble
some say i'm no better than the rest
but tell your mama and your papa
sometimes good guys don't wear white
everyday i work hard
at night i spend a restless [?] time
with all those rich kids and their lazy money
you can't hold a candle too long [?]
but tell...
sometimes...
good guys bad guys which is which?
the white collar worker or digger in the ditch
man who's to say who's the better man
of those two i do the best i can
you thought i had a dirty mind
all the messed up chicks all the changing times
white filth and easy living
you can't come come close to the love that i've given
but tell..
sometimes...back to top
