...[B]The Offspring[/B] are pretty spry for old guys. And, hey, at least they're not [a]Green Day[/a].

It's all a send up, and a damn good one...

[B]The Offspring[/B] might be about as glamorous as the circa-'76 punx still touring the nostalgia circuit, but their teenage fans don't let the side down...

I am the one, your help Iâve refused
Your offering hand, just set off the fuse
Oh, I am the rock that pushes away
I gave up tomorrow despite today
How does it feel
When you have it all?
How can you live
With nothing at all?
When the day begins all the guilt sinks in
And I look on the wreckage of the night
Though I try to break free, the cycle breaks me
Am I ever gonna see the light?
In my perfect isolation
I can stay here for awhile
Antidotes and revelations
Just extend my own exile
Now I donât know and itâs hard to explain
But it seems like things are just kind of insane
Because the world is crying but nobodyâs listening
So please leave a message on my cell phone
She wakes up, rage and grace
Pulling me closer, pushing away
And me, the sharpest thorn on your vine
Twisting and turning, we're all intertwined
One is for envy
And one just for spite
The cuts in my heart
They show in your eyes
Letâs make this complicated
Thinking is overrated
Weâre busting out
Of this shitty little town and
There's a moment in time and it's stuck in my mind
Way back when we were just kids
'Cause your eyes told the tale of an act of betrayal
I knew that somebody did
This time youâre really dead
Once followed but always led
You thought youâd rise above it all
Itâs all inside your head, all ripping it up in shreds
Show me how to lie, youâre getting better all the time
And turning all against the one is an art thatâs hard to teach
Another clever word sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line a mob jumps to their feet
I am the one, camouflage and guns
Risk my life to keep my people from harm
Authority vested in me
I sacrifice with my brothers in arms
