The Underground In America Lyrics by Pantera

The Underground In America Lyrics

    Put in position to wage teenage mayhem
    A common affair for the ones who are juiced
    If it is weakness that grants us the power
    We thrive on what's stronger than most of the world
    Glass breaks / the dimming lights /sweat, heat and profane debate /
    The smart ones stay on the outside / while drunken heads and arms erupt
    Centered man swings a punch, spits a tooth, postures odd
    A punk rock escapade/five bucks a head to be king dick in the crowd
    We are the ones who must sport the position
    Cheap beer / trendy clicks / lesbian love is accepted and right
    Shaved heads meet hair in the mix / blending the 80's and 90's with hate
    Shows on / dates canceled / kicked out for reasons that seem so unfair
    Skin crusts against the cops / a foregone conclusion that's tired and beat
    Ringworm,crabs and lice / V.D. ecstasy, speed and horse
    A heaven / of unmatched importance / an honor of sex to be stuck by the punk
    Rich homes / with money and food / abandoned for the bums on the street
    A lifestyle that's unexplainable / don't try and save what is all meant to be
    If it is free/from family that's seen / you can just keep it if you must beg
    It's better instead / you must follow the etiquette
    You know when it rains you're in your bed at home
    You act so real when you are alone
    You better not let the mohawked crowd see
    Give it five years, you'll retire your piercings
    You must admit that you mimic the weaklings
