The Separation of Church & Skate - NOFX

Lost in a sea of combat boots, flush the bouncers with wasted youth
When did punk rock become so safe, when did the scene become a joke
The kids who used to live for beer and speed now want their fries and coke
Cursing and flipping birds are not allowed, in fact let?s keep noise levels down

Must separate the church and skate

When don?t we put pad on the kids,helmets,head gear and mouth pieces
They we could pad the floor and walls,put cameras inside bathroom stalls
We make sure only nice bands play,and we could sing my country ?tis of thee sweet land of liberty

Stop singing songs about girls and love, you killed the owl you freed the dove
Confrontation and politics replaced with harmonies and shticks
