Walls all painted with graffiti art in the middle of the stage
All the straight edge hardcore kids are circling up
Their favorite band is playing some chords
The singer is setting it off
All heck breaks loose
On the floor of the mosh pit
On the floor of the mosh pit
Oh how them days seemed to have passed
Getting older just isn’t the same anymore
Could have been singing along
Until the voice is cracked
Or jumped off the stage
Until the feet can’t leap into the crowd anymore
Maybe even thrown a windmill
All that has lost its feel

Time has come and gone
Got to find something positive
To bring back the vibe of teenage roots
Can’t lose focus on what was so meant to be
I’ll get this back until it takes hold
Even for those who are not tough enough to do it
What has been running through the mind for so many days
It could break loose from its chains
Find the core of what meant something in those years of the 90s
Paying at the door was so cheap
It was a thrill ride that never passed
All it did was keep the pride full of momentum
Which could last forever

Chug on the breakdowns
This is for real

Hear the train rolling down
Listen for the yell of voice
It hits so hard, like a ton of bricks
It’s got a never ending feel
There has got to be something to hold onto
Broken records can’t be all over the ground
Come throw down that spirit filled music
Ahh, Help us find a body to move all over this space
The walls are cracking
They must be reinforced with something full of unbreakable strength

Call all who can last in this rage of night
Find a band to wake up the ghost
In this underground no mold of years
Before it can’t exist anymore

Ahh, It was disregarded as hope deep inside the heart
Breaking down the barriers
To rise above the negativity

No holding back
Just going the distance
Having struggled for so long
All that was there is gone
I dedicate this song to those friends of mine
Who brought me into what hardcore music is
For we all stand together
Never letting one fall back
All of us are united
Never stopping to let go.
