Rise Above
by Black Flag

Jealous cowards try to control
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
They distort what we say
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
Try and stop what we do
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
When they can't do it themselves
Rise above, we're gonna rise above

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use

Society's arms of control
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
Think they're smart, can't think for themselves
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
Laugh at us behind our backs
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
I find satisfaction in what they lack
Rise above, we're gonna rise above

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, but it's no use

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, but it's no use

We're born with a chance
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
I am gonna have my chance
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
We are born with a chance
Rise above, we're gonna rise above
And I am gonna have my chance
Rise above, we're gonna rise above

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use
Rise above
Rise above
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
We're gonna rise above
We're gonna rise above

When punk was about how you played, not how you dressed.

Punk was about what you said, now how you said it!

Angel Westbrook

you realized they would beat up people based on shoes they wore and the music they listened to it was very much as look based as it is now

@Badusername2000 Despite the fact they all sound substantially different; what do The NY Dolls, Discharge + Rancid have in common? Just another false musical term; a 'genre' used to market music to adolescents looking for an identity.

Badusername2000

its not about how you dress now, the style is secondary, the music is still the most important part

After seeing what's been going on in Minneapolis, I immediately thought of this song.
