Jeffrey Lewis - Punk Is Dead chords version 2

C AmPunk is dead, punk is dead,
F CYes that's right, punk is dead,
C AmPunk is dead, punk is dead,
F CIt's just another cheap product for the consumers' head,
C AmBubblegum rock on plastic transistors,
F CSchoolboy sedition backed by big time promoters,
C AmCBS promoted the Clash,
F Cbut not for revolution, just for cash.
C AmPunk became a fashion just like hippie used to be,
F Cand it ain't got a thing to do with you or me
C AmMovements are systems and systems kill,
F CMovements are expressions of the public will.
C AmPunk became a movement cause they all felt lost,
F Cbut the leaders sold out and now we all pay the cost.
[repeat chorus]
C AmPunk narcissism was a social napalm,
F CRock star punk bands started doing real harm,
C AmPreaching revolution, anarchy and change,
F CAs they sucked from the system that had given them their name.
C AmWell I'm tired of staring through shit stained glass,
F I'm tired of staring up a superstar's ass,
C CI've got an ass and a heart and a name,
Am Fand I'm just waiting for my fifteen minutes fame.
C CAnd me, yes me, do I want to burn?
Am FIs there really something that I can learn?
C CDo I need a business man to promote my angle?
Am FCan I resist the carrots fame and fortune dangle
C CI see the velvet zippies in their bondage gear,
Am FThe social elite with safety pins in their ear,
C CI watch and understand that it don't mean a thing,
Am FThe scorpions attack, but the systems stole the sting
[repeat chorus] C,Am,F,C 2x
