smooth punk

The world’s a fucked up place,
but it depends on how you see it
Life is full of change,
you grow up and then you feel it.
But smooth seas don’t make good sailors,
Jump ship and head for failure,
Find yourself a tragedy,
Slowly lose your sanity
—  Neck Deep - Smooth Seas Don’t Make Good Sailors

[Clockwise] Dave Prazak, BJ Whitmer, CM Punk, Colt Cabana, Rugby Thug Trent Baker, Paul E. Smooth, Summer, and Chris Hero
