Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
C             Am
Punk is dead, punk is dead,
F                 C
Yes that's right, punk is dead,
C             Am
Punk is dead, punk is dead,
          F                             C
It's just another cheap product for the consumers' head,

C                 Am
Bubblegum rock on plastic transistors,
F                            C
Schoolboy sedition backed by big time promoters,
C   Am
CBS promoted the Clash,
F                       C
but not for revolution, just for cash.
C                               Am
Punk became a fashion just like hippie used to be,
F                        C
and it ain't got a thing to do with you or me

C                         Am
Movements are systems and systems kill,
F                                C
Movements are expressions of the public will.
C                                 Am
Punk became a movement cause they all felt lost,
F                                  C
but the leaders sold out and now we all pay the cost.

[repeat chorus]

C                     Am
Punk narcissism was a social napalm,
F                            C
Rock star punk bands started doing real harm,
C                     Am
Preaching revolution, anarchy and change,
        F                               C
As they sucked from the system that had given them their name.

C                         Am
Well I'm tired of staring through shit stained glass,
I'm tired of staring up a superstar's ass,
C                     C
I've got an ass and a heart and a name,
    Am                              F
and I'm just waiting for my fifteen minutes fame.

    C                C
And me, yes me, do I want to burn?
   Am                            F
Is there really something that I can learn?
     C                      C
Do I need a business man to promote my angle?
      Am                          F
Can I resist the carrots fame and fortune dangle
  C                               C
I see the velvet zippies in their bondage gear,
    Am                        F
The social elite with safety pins in their ear,
  C                            C
I watch and understand that it don't mean a thing,
    Am                         F
The scorpions attack, but the systems stole the sting

[repeat chorus]
