synthpop punk?

So, on one of my random punk comps, I found this song that I kept sorting into synthpop, but the lyrics kept striking me. So I finally looked the band (trigger10d) up online, and they do list themselves as punk.

I bought the CD. :)

Here's the lyrics to the song I have, "Most People Don't Forget":

a phantom structure stands alone
big papa throw your runts a bone
bad memories and endless itch
peace love white doves are meaningless

i'm at my best when i'm a wreck
i want my hands around your neck
i'll never need those cuts to bleed
what exactly didn't you see?

i'll never have to live there anymore
i'll never fight there anymore
i'll never have to cry there anymore
that was my house...

two more who didn't understand
for you i'll do the best i can
it's not my place to carry you
and let you do the things you do

my mama's love has always been
but her stong will was paper thin
what's an upstanding citizen?
we're not right now and never been

i'll never have to live there anymore
i'll never fight there anymore
i'll never have to cry there anymore
that was my house

i'll never have to hide in my room
so nobody noticed me
and be as small as i could be
in my old house

if i ran would you even know
just how far can a child go
strip my strength and pride from me
aren't helpless pets given for free

yeah push me back behind you
i promise not to tell the truth
don't speak until your spoken to
what do these lyrics mean to you?

i'll never have to live there anymore
i'll never fight there anymore
i'll never have to cry there anymore
that was my house

i'll never have to hide in my room
so nobody noticed me
and be as small as i could be
in my old house
