Used to be my Hero.

amazonitunesGoogle Music

You’re not a young man and this isn’t a young man’s game
But we try it all the same
They told me all the bands I grew up with grew up themselves
Made middle of the road records just to stock HMV shelves
Well I never ever thought that it would happen to you
But I guess that I was wrong
You can’t grow out of this
Being angry doesn’t disappear with years
No matter where you hide you’ll always know the truth
Of social injustice, the millions are the proof
With a sense of right and wrong that had them shaking in their boots
How could you forget so soon?
You used to be my hero but now you’ve changed your tune
You were howling at the radio now you’re howling at the moon
And everyone before you asked why it stopped so soon
You don’t need to know why I don’t believe in you
And you know that punk’s not dead
You can’t kill and idea when an idea is in your head
So don’t believe in everything you see on the small screen
I don’t believe in teenage vampires or that people are squeaky clean
It doesn’t need to be brightly coloured to be out on your sleeve
You don’t need a Rancid shirt to believe
You used to be my hero but now you’ve changed your tune
You were howling at the radio now you’re howling at the moon
And everyone before you asked why it stopped so soon
You don’t need to know why I don’t believe in you
You used to be my hero but now you’ve changed your tune
You were howling at the system now you’re only howling at the moon
And everyone before you asked why it stopped so soon
You don’t need to know why I don’t believe in you
You don’t need to know why I don’t believe in you
You don’t need to be told why I don’t believe in you
