Outsider 02:44
Outsider dont listen coz theyre full of shit dont need someone telling you that you dont fit you dont meet the status quo dont got the right cloths you aint in the know got my music and i got my escape your transparent world I just cant take acting like a stray but thats okay coz i didnt really wanna belong anyway coz im an OUTsider dont understand these changes inside or how it feels like when worlds collide judgmental clik which you'll never fit vacant outsider degenerate look you up and down with blinded eyes scapegoating you with their ignorant minds flip em the V n let it all hang out this is wot living lifes all about sexuality within, colour of your skin body shape or place of origin all amunition for the other side protecting their own pain deep inside social norms and moral codes these justifications soon will implode Im anti religion and anti state anti greed and anti hate something burning burning inside its a freedom freedom denied its your life claim it back the whole worlds under attack
THEY'RE ON TO YOU Our human rights and liberties Are violated in discrete In the name of state security The government's inflicting fear All common sense has disappeared forcing through the anti-terror bill THEY'RE ON TO YOU - OBSERVATION, INFILTRATION THEY'RE ON TO YOU - BIOMETRIC REGISTRATION Their anti-protest policies ID-cards compulsory Police state or free democracy? Shoot-to-kill with no regrets Executed by the pigs 7 shiny bullets in the head their regulations and legislations designed to oppress and control fear exploitation a frightened nation just how far will this system go
Enemy's Enemy History lesson we neglected to learn play with fire boy you gonna get burned covert operation training freedom fighters Global war on terror is now ignited My Enemy’s enemy is one step ahead of me coz your morally blind My Enemy’s enemy is now my own enemy Hypocrisy defined a horrible depiction of the perfect irony mutilated bodies groaning in agony who's the freedom fighters and who's the terrorists its god against god the war of supremicists we re ALL the victims but who takes the blame its a war of religion and capital gain oil and greed - commerce and creed - a change in foreign policy is what we need
CLUSTER BOMBS How you work - Feed Family Sleep at night - live conscious free you clock it in - bomb factory abhorrent need - life misery If there is one thing to stop - Ban cluster bombs The blind eye - land of the free Dont say stop - Stop Israel plea The show corrupt - with hypocrisy Hear the screams - humanity
No Escape 02:30
NO ESCAPE Global temperatures are rising Storms and floodings terrorizing Our climate's changing day by day Ignorant economic policies Filthy corporate idustries Profit over people is what they say HOW MANY MORE DISASTEROUS WARNINGS THERE'S NO ESCAPE FROM GLOBAL WARMING Bush and Exxon's dirty connection United States Kyoto rejection While they're the worst polluter in history This society's oil addiction Carbon dioxide emissions Won't get us through this century There's no escape There's no denial
Blown It 02:43
Blown It Night time out on the piss more mixed drinks mean mischief red bulls too strong spliff wake in cell feeling so sick bad buy bought on bad sleep more to the point didnt come cheap sixth sense seemed a bit dodge now its no joke need a new job Oh no - only gone and blown it Oh no - really gone and blown it now Thought it was a bit risk got me tax disc sealed with a kiss cop stop called it in quick summoned for a dick feel a right thick so sweet girl of my dreams then it went off torn at the seams claptrap gave it some yap now she just thinks Im a big sap
Running out of time materialism instilled from birth financial wealth equates your lifes worth consumer culture and social ills the war machine profits as it kills inherent greed of the chosen few bitten off more than they can chew we're running out of time taken for granted all the things weve known Now its time to reap what weve sewn but weve planted the seeds of discontent diplomacy used to circumvent global industry tipping the scales turn back the clocks or disaster prevails coz it takes so much effort to make us pay attention too busy consuming to think of prevention polluting exploiting with reckless abandon human neglect til no one is left standing
Intelligent Design Natural Selection or intelligent Design argument's lost its a compromise creationist theory dressed in a lab coat turning our classrooms into a joke we dont want it-we dont need it the unquestionable truth imposed upon our youth see you across the protest line Do the monkey dance Imaculate conception and adam and eve these are fables to large to believe the evidence is plain to see on display as natural history children arent born into religion its imposing creed without question being denied the freedom of choice unquestionable truth to silence our voice
Wake Up 02:31
WAKE UP Force-fed what to think and see through newspapers and on TV Your politics and religion are brainwashing society Your cencorship and education are designed to control our minds Don't ever let someone decide for you what is wrong and what's right Wake up - And stop this useless hypocracy Wake up - And start fighting the real enemy Your preachings and condemnations on what we're supposed to be Is contradicting the ideal of individuality You're boxed in and restricted by rules you yourself create Take a close look there ain't much difference from a system you so much hate
Still Bored 01:51
Still Bored as soon as we get a venue the council shuts it down dont wanna pay to play in the poxy part of town so we make our own fun but from the cops we gotta run thats why we look so bored so sick of being ignored coz we re still bored put on a gig - work a p.a. pick up an instrument - learn how to play start a label - write a zine get involved - support your scene
Mindless Violence Human temper devoid of logic unfocused anger defeats the object it permeates every walk of life from western culture to middle east strife theres only one more heinous crime the glorification of violence sublime the fundamental root of the cause human nature permanently flawed eliminate mindless violence your in the humour coz its friday night but something tells me you just like to FIGHT your violence addiction is fucking obscene makes no difference who you make bleed dealing with issues when youre pissed you do your talking with your fists your seeing red just like the other side Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde I saw you kick a man in the head til he bled adrenaline was pumping you left him for dead Kubriks classic misunderstood or reinacting Boys N the hood counteractive macho violence, guilt personified by your silence bangin on about respect and pride but to all and sunder youve denied It aint about being a pacifist but a show of respect to co exist deny the value of human life brought to an end from a switchblade knife
KOYAANISQATSI Afflicted are the innocent victims of our negligence cobwebs strewn across the sky suffocate our air supply burnt out land and boiling oceans self destruct now set in motion Koyaanisqatsi - dead planet out of balance life in turmoil rape and mine the land and soil ecology disintegrates mother nature accepts her fate container of ash thrown from the sky on poisoned air we choke and die
Bolloxology 03:01
Bolloxology Your peerage title grate me and blue blood dont impress me in all the greater scheme of things billboard press propaganda dont wanna understand ya you overplay and saturate you try your best deceiving you swear by your belief in that you're the only way to be you all deserve the gander dont wanna yield and pander the dogma ideology Its all bolloxology Sectarian division n all your useless killing you oughta know you get the fuck your here and now a human try seeing through and tune on dont be another stupid suck To jumped up gits all look at me all high on gang mentality like a bad apple in police these sad old tactics never cease
