Track Name: 01. Generation
01.GENERATION
Tough to get by and to get through borders, security... fucking prejudice against the odd looking, poor and few no chance! no rest for the restless, so we take pride in the ditch
yeah we rise from the pit
and we exist the system, nothing good comes out of it
NO JOBS NO CASH! FOR OUR GENERATION
ALL UNEMPLOYED AND WE GET NO RELIEF
THE YOUTH IS FUCKED WITH CHAINS AROUND THE NECK
THEY'LL BAN SQUATTING AND WE WILL SLEEP AT THEIR DOORSTEP You can clean some dust that is not yours
Get look down on all day long
Sign a contract to be the slave of a filthy fast food chain
You can make the same move all day long in a factory
But it ain't no dance of freedom and liberty
NO JOBS NO CASH! FOR OUR GENERATION
ALL UNEMPLOYED AND WE GET NO RELIEF
THE YOUTH IS FUCKED WITH CHAINS AROUND THE NECK
THEY'LL BAN SQUATTING AND WE WILL SLEEP AT THEIR DOORSTEP fuck all to do in the gutter
so you let yourself go, you let yourself go!
the new school are calling it quits
if they ain't got no money they don't give a shit
whatever happened to the struggle
and getting in trouble
with the world you think you know
no, you're gonna end up on your ass
let the bastards run your own show!
NO JOBS NO CASH!
Track Name: 02. The War
02.THE WAR
one life time to go
i've been a wasted vision in the cold brown snow tossing and turning in my epileptic skin
i knew i was trouble i was made of sin
i had to get the fuck out of the state i was in
spit the murder, i've been smothering my heart in shit
my heart in shit
but the war's still going on
between the fascist television
and the struggling musician
and the kids are having fun
at the fancy night clubs
and the dirty old pubs
but the war's still going on
because the big ben's counting on the money in your pocket in your pocket.. the money in your pocket
i'm on the road where the fire used to live
the ashes of an outbreak, roaming in the pit
this is it!
evacuated space in the market
of a liberated age
we're just another target
i found a man he's a hard living wreck
told me i should grab my fate by the neck
i'm on the road less travelled, i'm not there yet
i had a plan in mind but i tend to forget
Track Name: 03. Great Value
03.GREAT VALUE
great bargains on my groceries
buy one get one free for only 99pm
save 10% that's my best guarantee
Let me be your ritual
Consume me ­ Be satisfied
I’ll get you high before my enemies outside
I am the great value of your supermarket
Better than half the price on the things you wanna get
Bundle and mix and match you and I can make it worth its cost Let’s get it celebrated with a discount
Oh! My best friend
All the brave workers turn into job seekers
Now that I have automatic cashiers
I sacrifice for you dear customers
i have everything that you need
for you saven days a week
think more of less and i'll make you believe
I am the great value of your supermarket
Better than half the price on the things you wanna get
Bundle and mix and match you and I can make it worth its cost Let’s get it celebrated with a discount
Track Name: 04. SHOT!
04.SHOT!
you got skills to make into ammunition
if they can load up your guns, with high opinions take a walk on the wrong side of town
in every city it's the same old sound
the television's got no soul
and the radio murdered rock n' roll
it's a modern zest we can't control
dead bodies and novelties in a big black hole
shot down; all originality
shot down; genuine insanity
shot; the aspirations of our kind
buried in the yard of a corporate mind shot down; the furthest pilgrim
shot down; all the women and children shot; and they say it's for the best
can't you fucking tell this world's a mess?
step up and book that one way ticket
with a skeleton corpse driving down your spirit
rough ride to the edge of possibility
some will never be the filthy hypocrites they used to be
and when the war's good and done you'll find a home for everyone through chaos came the perfect end to every liar you thought were a friend
they got shot down; for originality shot down; genuine insanity
shot; for the visions of our kind
buried in the yard of a corporate mind shot down; the perverts and cowards shot down; the tyrants in power
shot; and we'll kill them all one by one they'll take the fall
Track Name: 05. Man Down
05.MAN DOWN
Some psychopaths killed another man
The country’s in bits ‘cause it’s one less soldier
How many families do they destroy at war
For their government ­ They’ve got no reason
was it all set up such revenge
spit the rage of those who pray for change
troops kill and rape and kill some more
but it won't be on the news
So I, I have to say just don’t believe
This bullshit all the way
You play with fire ­ You’re gonna get burnt
Don’t declare war if you don’t wanna fuck with rebels lies are told on the breaking news
but they won't mention the power abuse
and the fascists set up their nasty plans
to brainwash everyone as much as they can
All nazi scums the salute in the air
They will lynch everyone if we don’t give a care They’re marching away with pride and hate
And the number’s rising..
So I, I have to say just don’t believe
This bullshit all the way
You play with fire ­ You’re gonna get burnt
But you’ve signed a contract with death anyway Once again it’s no surprise the cops are on their side They’re beating us down ­ to give them a chance
To break down the voice of tolerance
Track Name: 06. Capital Machine
06.CAPITAL MACHINE
Well I’ve been travelling through the mountains and the seas Digging things I’ve never seen in many countries and cities Something would not crack my face into a grin
The street’s a victim of the capital machine
All them greedy pigs and disgraceful companies
Always safe and sound on their side of the fees
Fighting over cash adverts and taxes
They don’t seem bothered by their fuckin moron disease Who does wear the crown where the future’s got no soul We bought what they sold and now we fight and fall History repeats itself with burning centuries
Now just to feel safe we stay locked up in factories They all want my pennies ­ each other enemies
That’s the way it is for them beautiful trees
They say the grass is green and the skies are blue
Somewhere in between it’s time to change your point of view Billboards make you smile like a newborn child
They make me wanna die or rot into the wild
Can you stand this world if I had a final word
I’d say matches and gasoline for the best and for the worse
Who does wear the crown where the future’s got no soul
We bought what they sold and now we fight and fall
History repeats itself with burning centuries
Now just to feel safe we stay locked up in factories
If hope has nowhere to go and find answers we don’t know
The talk in the wind by those made of sins is all bullshit and bullshit If some can be smart enough to change these times that are rough Some will call treason and send’em to prison
Here we are... Controlled by tax­dodgers
Track Name: OH NO!
07.OH NO!
I wake up to savour my fag and coffee
Have a look at the news my dear good ol’ muse
War cuts and debts I get served for breakfast
Riots on the rise since all hope’s gone to dust
On the bus to get downtown everyone looks depressed
The gran next to me hides her precious wallet
I’d give her my seat if the wagon was full
We’re all stigmatized and I’m wearing a hood
OH NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
My head in my hands I just don’t understand
At the supermarket do you wait in the queue
Crisis like best diet man it’s just a preview
I have friends they have to sell many grams
To make sure they feed the babies in the prams
Drunks on the pavement getting shitfaced on booze
Teach me revolution but they wear nike shoes
We’re all rotten fruits of a corporate nation
Goods under my coat I laugh at damnation
OH NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
My head in my hands I just don’t understand
We used to vote for hope and glory but now the world’s fighting back with fury
And fear resistance to the same old story ­ endless corruption in every city Fuck police and bankers newspapers all liars
Politician leaders and racist piss takers
They make war to claim peace over land over oil
Over god and money ­ over where you come from
Track Name: 08. Radio Caroline
08.RADIO CAROLINE
The world was at war at the break of a new age
Those who lit the fuse would take all your wage
So they could keep loading the guns that you’d soon be using
They’d force you to kill until the crime becomes a thrill ­ no!
Meanwhile a few scammed to pay less than you
Their pockets were full and their collars weren't blue
Yeah the corporate man knew how to shake them double­crossing hands Of bankers and lawyers in some Jersey Island
Radio Caroline against the offshore
The banking snowball she couldn’t take no more
Radio Caroline dodging fm waves
To tell everyone who’s digging our graves
Tricks get dirtier today if you know which cards to play
Evasion ­ Avoidance ­ A grand lawful difference
No consideration at the poll station for me
A speech for the throne don’t suit me to believe
I believe ­ I believe There’s fuckall I believe in now
Nothing at all!
Radio Caroline against the offshore
The banking snowball she couldn’t take no more
Radio Caroline dodging fm waves
To tell everyone who’s digging our graves
No share’s getting fair high up from the chair
Just count the years of famine and war from now to before
Money’s a whore ­ All the ressources blowing in the breeze
Everything’s seized where the soul of a man ain’t no more than that
No more than that...
Track Name: 09. Centre Stage
09.CENTRE STAGE
center stage, dim lights now, curtain falls
you were my obsession back when i thought i knew it all death on your shoulder, i was only laughing for you
but somewhere in the shadows i was crying cuz i knew it was true
linger in the alleyway with me,
i was never too busy, i was never too tough crawling back and forth in the gutter
all the stars in the sky were never bright enough
and you said
"everyday is different but basically it stays the same but baby when you're 29 you're gonna look so fine
i hope by then you still remember my name
and when we turn 40 if we've bored and we're lonely let's get married, let's get lost"
then you spun me round and round,
and round and round and round
centre stage i was alone you were gone
sunny california couldn't wait to kill another one walking wonder and it makes me wonder where will i go when i'm gone
and where will i go till then
oh and when... will i go?
linger in the alleyway with you,
someone thought we were lovers, someone thought we were friends,
and someone thought we hated each other i guess we fell for the weather
oh we were everything
and you said
"everyday is different, but basically it stays the same but baby when you're 29 you're gonna look so fine
i hope by then you still remember my name
and when we turn 40 if we're bored and we're lonely let's get a home and have a kid or two"
then you spun me round and round
and i spun around with you
i made my way through the dirt and you were full of surprises make way for the rich and the fury oh you were always in a hurry
and i'm still waiting for you a smile to put me to bed
Track Name: 10. One Too Many Times
10.ONE TOO MANY TIMES
This goddamn reality is trying to take me
I’m such a mess tortured by my weakness
I pass out on the street in parks and in buses
Southbound tonight with my bad habits
And I have to make it back to this little factory
In the city I’m cradled by the siren symphony
And I lose my shit tonight ‘cause I hate the human race
And I’m losing my faith
Please keep me away from this bottle of gin ­ Those amphetamines Or I’ll fuck up once again ­ One too many times
A nervous breakdown ­ I pick up fights all over town
I feel all survival but I’m all suicidal
Wish I could be kind but frustration speaks my mind
Nothing is easy ­ Well I heard this song before
My motivation swallows up in slow motion
Small problems get bigger with them silly addictions
Now I’m screwed and handcuffed that’s right
And guess what? ­ I’ll sleep in jail tonight
And I lose my shit tonight ‘cause I hate the human race
And I’m losing my faith
Please keep me away from this bottle of gin ­ Those amphetamines Or I’ll fuck up once again ­ One too many times
Track Name: Die! Police Die!
11. DIE! POLICE DIE!
We fight against crime they say ­ But at the end of the day
Who has got killed in the fray ­ Innocents anyway
When they beat you to the ground far from the eyes of town
You know you won't be safe and sound ­ In a concrete cell they’ll kick you down Police! Police!
Do you see a peacemaker in them? ­ If you do I don't feel the same ‘Cause sticks and guns made their lives a mistake
We blame the shame of this society ­ Social control is a tragedy
With hearts made of concrete these murderers are the real thugs on our streets Now goodbye! And die! Police die!
Hunting the youth on the street ­ just to fill statistics
Politicians craving bad critics will make the news so dramatic
All they protect is money ­ the state and big companies
At every protest they’re ready in favour of the enemy
We blame the shame of this society ­ Social control is a tragedy
With hearts made of concrete these murderers are the real thugs on our streets Now goodbye! And die! Police die!
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE! FUCK THE POLICE!
The world is on the street marching in the name of peace
They lynch rape kill with no limits
All we want is to be free from the lies and all the poverty
Free speech is a right mister officer
Your violence is not but we cry and we suffer
You’re the garbage of every age ­ The more you’ll cage the more we’ll rage
We blame the shame of this society ­ Social control is a tragedy
With hearts made of concrete these murderers are the real thugs on our streets Now goodbye! And die! Police die!
Track Name: 12. All gone Wrong
12.ALL GONE WRONG
There’s morons and cowards ruining these modern times
And they never seem ashamed by the horror of their acts
Set the streets on fire ­ That’s all we can afford
Greed’s a bunch of men’s heaven for some trillion people’s hell
At the end of the day the system killed your conscience yes!
What we’ve seen ­ What we’ve touched everything was all business And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
In this CCTV reality show
And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
Nothing never heals in this consume and die wounded society and we're stuck in the void of a profiteering man
he's got your dressed in uniforms and suits that suit his plan set the streets on fire before we get to old
this city needs the riot of the souls that aren't sold
we've been grabbed by the hands that'll never understand and dragged into this vile game of supply and demand
And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
In this CCTV reality show
And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
Nothing never heals in this consume and die wounded society They point their fingers at your foreign brothers
And the hate they create to stigmatize the difference
I’m sorry but let me say all of this is so sketchy
And there’s police everywhere but no justice anyway
Deals are never fair ­ money goes so rare
I’m sorry but let me say we’re all fucked as far as I can see And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
In this CCTV reality show
And It’s all gone wrong! And it’s all gone wrong!
Nothing never heals in this consume and die wounded society
Track Name: 13. Running Behind
13.RUNNING BEHIND
Still in bed at the break of dawn when the big boys come knock at the door A 9 to 5 to give the poor more problems than the day before
They say if we don’t let them in they’ll use what they can to crack in
Jog on man we owe you nothing ­ stick a needle in your eye and keep trying! Frustrated at the way we live ­ shame on your goals to achieve
I’ve got something up my sleeve among stories you’ll never believe Through the sound of good old tape plan B’s slowly taking shape Let’s crawl under the back gate and crowbar the fire escape You’re still running behind and we’re doing just fine
We’ve seen it’s before it’s just another time
It’s like playing cat and mouse ­ we’ll find somewhere to hide
Won’t you give it all up ­ Won’t you give it all up
It’s our lives! our time! and our fight!
We don’t have much but keep us tight
A forgotten soul died tonight ­ it don’t shake your evil mind
No one’s safe from things to lose ­ you might as well one day sing the blues About the holes in the soles of your shoes
You’re still running behind and we’re doing just fine
We’ve seen it’s before it’s just another time
It’s like playing cat and mouse ­ we’ll find somewhere to hide
Won’t you give it all up ­ Won’t you give it all up
YOU CUNT!
