Artist V. Art
I refuse to excuse your narcissism masked in self-contempt Go and pour your heart and soul out, as you pretend to smoke your cigarette Sing the praise of community, then set your brethren to the fire You tell 'em "Don't you break our rules" and they go tripping on your wire The more you pick at the surface The more it falls apart It's a question of "Which matters more? The artist or the art?" The artist or the art? There's a certain amount of time we get before we're sent to the great beyond And I wish you the least time possible before you're sent where you belong He called you brother. He called you flesh and bone So wrapped up in your own mind, you forgot any world outside your own And I don't wanna hear (I don't wanna hear) how hard it was for you Because the best overcame our fears and none of them included you You can write a hundred thousand songs and never know what it means to be punk You can tell me I'm not rock n roll, but the difference is, I don't give a f*ck There's a certain amount of time we get before we're sent to the great beyond And I wish you the least time possible before you're sent where you belong Yes there is a certain amount of time we get before we give our last farewell And I wish you the least time possible, and then I'll see you in Hell
