Lyrics:
Bigger Than Punk Rock
union boss is signing
worse than bad deals
in return for an office
no-show work and free meals
the foreman's a bully, bossing workers around
sucking up, kicking down, striving for promotion
backstabbers rewarded by management
the less the workers get, the more to themselves

ch:
it's bigger than punk rock x2
bigger than punk

turning punk into
music business
crying for too long
in the wilderness
what words to spread? there were no ideals
just for show, bought and sold, never ever for real
hardcore pop, social liberal lyrics
jesters praise big corporate profits

ch:
it's bigger than punk rock x4
bigger than punk

unions, now insurance companies
cheap home, family, pet insurances
the revenues: member fees and dividends
from the investments of the strike funds
money over bullshit; workers rights
bottom line, there won't be no fight
the cash flow guarantees the unions existence
a means to an end

ch:
it's bigger than punk rock x2
bigger than punk
