Hardcore rules here are two
Hate Ronnie Reagan no matter what he do
Question authority I’d really like to know
Who got the authority to make those rules

Question the authority that says question authority
Gonna hafta see for yourself

Left right wing bands, bands without a stand
It is a fad or is it a command
We’re no role models cos as for us
Our Role Model died for us on the Cross

We looked all over and when it was done
The Truth we thought was a lie was the truest One
The Cross Resurrection the Forgiveness of sins
And the Spirit inside adds up to more than a whim

Its the devil’s world so there’s no surprise
Just mention Jesus no comfort inside
Try to hide it by ridiculing Him
Shouldn’t that be telling everybody something
