The Burnout Knew Better
written by: Reed Ferguson

(The Burnout knew better in ’91)

You’d go to Woodstock without knowing Hendrix
Quote “Stairway to Heaven” without loving Zeppelin
You know “21 Guns” so you say you like punk
Do you even know of the Ramones?

The Burnout knew better in ’91
He saw through your poser-act fun
He said, “You know not what it means”
And you care not what it means
You just like to shoot your guns
But we know you’re the one
That the Burnout warned us of

You think you’re so hipster with your fake flower crown
Do you even flowers, or is it just for the crowd?
One minute rebel, one minute tamed
You’re not really different if you’re exactly the same

The Burnout knew better in ’91
He saw through your poser-act fun
He said, “You know not what it means”
And you care not what it means
You just like to shoot your guns
But we know you’re the one
That the Burnout warned us of
