The A Lazy Punch (ALP!) concept is not hard to understand. A Lazy Punch stand for everything you hate. Whether it be the dickheads in our parliment, who have been screwing up this country ever since the first stupid brit set foot upon this land, they stuck up a foreign flag and called this place Australia. Yes we stand on stolen land. Now, we've come a long way since then, but some racists just wont change. FlagSong goes out to you guys. Don't get me wrong - we don't hate Australia, we love the country and the people within. We think it's the best place to live, definantly. But the Australian flag burns in FlagSong because of the selfish people who put it there in the first place, and the racists who believe that it was right. On a lighter note ALP stand strong against this new wave of pop that is so wrongly calling it's self punk. They're selling out the name, not the music - cause what they're playing... That's just not punk! These days if you mention a "punk" people think you are referring to that cool popular guy who's wearing a trucker hat and a studded belt. That's exactly our point - punk is 100% opposite to popular things. It's all about being hated. We hate the pop culture in return, the social norm, the accepted way of living life. People living that accepted life call us immature, maybe they're right - I don't care! There's no variations. These people are carbon copies. Life's just plain boring when everyone's the same! That's the whole idea behind All The Same, everyone's competing, to be the coolest, to get the best fucking HSC mark. Relax! It's just an exam! It's not the end of the world. But it's sad when you hear that employers aren't even hiring descent people just because they lack a piece of paper with number's, percentages and graphs on it, graphs showing your rank in the state. Your rank in society. You're just a number you know. That's all they care about anymore. Your position. These days some people have just forgotten their morals. Maybe they never had any to begin with, but any decent person should know that there's alot more to someone than their acedemic ranking. All of us have to live and breathe this stuff every day, whether we like it or not. But you can take a stand you know. Go against the current trend. Swim upstream. Stand with us, while every other number marches forward in uniform, in time, on command. Stand with us and yell our message loud, because if you dont yell, the others wont hear you. Spread the word. You don't have to live just like everybody else. ALP is your voice against all that. So go on, TAKE A PUNCH! - even if thay do call us lazy.
