    I do not listen to a lot of punk rock anymore. But these guys will always have a special place in my heart.

    What do you think of the song? Any other similar songs?

    "Three thousand miles of wilderness overcome by the flow
    A lonely restitution of pavement pomp and show
    I seek a thousand answers I find but one or two
    I maintain no discomfiture my path again renewed

    Against the grain
    That's where I'll stay
    Swimming upstream
    I maintain against the grain

    Here labeled as a lunatic sequestered and content
    There ignored and defeated by the government
    There's an oriented public who's magnetic force does pull
    But away from the potential of the individual

    Against the grain
    That's where I'll stay
    Swimming upstream
    I maintain against the grain

    The flow is getting stronger with small increments of time
    And eddies of new ideas are increasingly hard to find
    You need all that the other has your right to seize the day
    But in all your acquisitions you will soon be swept away

    Against the grain
    That's where I'll stay
    Swimming upstream
    I maintain against the grain

    There's a common consensus and an uncomfortable cheer
    A reverberating chorus that anyone can hear
    It sings, 'Leave your cares behind you just grab tenaciously'
    This lulling sense or purpose will destroy us rapidly

    Against the grain
    That's where I'll stay
    Swimming upstream
    I maintain against the grain

    Against the grain..."
