VOTE 51/49 that's the way that we divide so Vote! Vote! Get out and fucking Vote! If fuckheads take power again we'll blame you if you don't. If the candidates for leadership Are a shit or a shit or another shit This shit believes in reward And this shit punishment Ooooooh Which one of these two do you choose? If the candidates for leadership Are a shit or a shit or another shit One shit wants to save the NHS And the other has sex with pigs say... Ooooooh Which one of these two do you choose? If the candidates for leadership Are a shit or a shit or another shit Just put your tick in any box Your choice might not get picked Ooooooh Which one of these two do you choose? If the candidates for leadership Are a shit or a shit or another shit If you put your trust in no-one And you think the system's rigged Ooooooh... Vote!

COCKROACHES We are cockroaches we can live in the cracks We can thrive on the scraps on the floor We’ll take what you’re dropping and we’ll make it work out We’re waiting for a foot through the door We’re still here We’re still all here We wait You call us the problem but we don’t really care 'Cause we’ll be around longer than you And soon you’ll move on long forgotten and gone A nuclear attack’s overdue We’re still here We’re still all here We wait The pesticide ain’t working The poison does nothing We’re constantly mutating We’re patiently waiting And your efforts are all in vain We’re hardier than you We’re waiting for a new strain Of plague or killer flu...

DIY OR DIE We got a penny for a plectrum and the drum kit’s packing in We got a bar stool for a snare stand cos all the parts are missing But none of that matters when there’s people helping out It’s the spirit of community that's what its all about DIY DIY or die The PA’s cutting out and the mics all gives us shocks so we cover them in bog roll and wrap them with our socks But none of that matters when there’s people helping out It’s the spirit of community that's what its all about DIY DIY or die Here's to all that help out to keep the scene alive Putting in for nothing back because of you we thrive The punx, promoters, bands the zinesters Non-profit labels and everyone involved! DIY DIY or die Book your own shows Make your own label Zines, records, flyers Do it yourself DIY or die DIY DIY or die...

EMPTY REWARDS Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick Work is necessary, part of the progression You say that daily labour should be my obsession So I can buy a better future and give my life away Drop everything I’m dreaming of and do just as you say You say I should dig Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick I should get on my hands and knees and I should beg beg beg to you Is that what you want me to do? Well I’m never gonna beg! I should sacrifice my time for society Be thankful for the pennies that you pay me So I can buy better furniture and give my life away Drop everything I’m dreaming of and do just as you say You say I should dig Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick I should get on my hands and knees and I should beg beg beg to you Is that what you want me to do? Well I’m never gonna beg! What are we working towards? A lifestyle that we can’t afford? What are we working towards? Empty rewards Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick Empty rewards Well I’m not gonna dig Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick I'm never going to dig Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick So don't ask me to dig Dig dig dig with a shovel and a pick I won’t get on my hands and knees and I won’t beg beg beg to you. Is that what you want me to do? Yeah that's what you want me to do Well I’m never gonna beg!

DEMONS I see racists, i see hate Arm in arm with a fascist state The KKK, they get their say And no one tells them to step down They count on mass apathy Your indifference is the key Slipping through the cracks to spew Their filth all thanks to you Deep down in the shadows the demons hide And they’re on the rise Deep down in the shadows the demons hide And you know, but you turn a blind eye I see racists i see hate Arm in arm with a fascist state They kill kill kill and yet you still Question if we should take them down You say they’re just misguided Uneducated and stupid While they spread their vile hatred And shoot more people dead Deep down in the shadows the demons hide and they’re on the rise Deep down in the shadows the demons hide and you know but you turn a blind eye There’s been a worldwide shift to the right I don’t know why but I don’t like it What’s the point in national pride if it just results in endless fighting Integrate, don't segregate division just derives more hate Its fundamentally wrong Why can’t we all just get along We’ve got to drive these demons out of town We’ll drive them out of town Fight racism fight the hate That controls the fascist state Can’t you see your apathy Will never ever take them down Any little actions help To steer us all away from hell Anything can help us win So let me hear you sing Deep down in the shadows the demons hide And they’re on the rise Deep down in the shadows the demons hide And we know, so lets put things right And we all fucking see you so we’re gonna fucking put things right Now!

BLOOD IN THE OIL I get my sugarcane from the sugar mill mafia And I get a good deal from the battery farm My only gripe is that my car takes a while to start ‘Cos there’s blood in the oil again Blood in the oil blood in the oil The engine doesn’t run Blood in the oil blood in the oil there's blood in the oil again I get my cocoa from a mob that sells it to me on the cheap They tell me sweat and tears keep us all content and the kerosene lamp gives me nothing but a flicker ‘cos there’s blood in the oil again Blood in the oil blood in the oil The flame is burning red Blood in the oil blood in the oil There's blood in the oil again Blood in the oil blood in the oil The engine doesn’t run Blood in the oil blood in the oil There's blood in the oil again Blood in the oil blood in the oil The bloodstains won’t wash out Blood in the oil blood in the oil There's blood in the oil again

CORRUPTION Batter with the baton when the bosses feel threatened Do you ever question motives or do you just comply? Do you follow orders when they seem unjust When you’re told to cover up and when you’re told to lie? Oi Oi! Tell me officer I wanna know Where do you stand when the line you draw is crossed by the powers from above, does it fucking bother you? Their corruption Thrives on you When they pull the strings do you sever all the ties Or do you run along with the bullshit and the lies? Do you turn a blind eye when you know its unjust? Do you think alone or do you you leave your mind to rust? Oi Oi! Tell me officer I wanna know Where do you stand when the line you draw is crossed by the powers from above, does it fucking bother you? Their corruption Thrives on you Corrupted and bloated are the hands where the power lies In those deformed hands, every shred of hope dies Corrupted and bloated are the hands where the power lies Open your eyes, open your eyes Oi Oi!...

GONNA BLOW There’s no time to waste start a family Get a car and house before you grow too old Life is a race I’m lagging far behind it’s getting out of hand I can’t keep control I’m one mind with two arms and a fuse that's not so long I’m one mind with two arms and a fuse that's getting shorter everyday Gonna fucking blow It’s ingrained into our society juggle jobs and life develop health issues It’s all normalised and washed away with drink The clock is ticking down there’s too much to do I’m one mind with two arms and a fuse that's not so long I’m one mind with two arms and a fuse that's getting shorter everyday Gonna fucking blow “Tough shit my friend, just put up with it grit your teeth and fight!” That's your advice? Now tell me this Where can I opt out? Where are my choices? If this social mould fits so fucking well then why am I in crisis? I’m gonna fucking blow

TILL THE DAY I DIE My privacy is taken away from me It doesn’t exist in a world so mad for information My activity is monitored constantly I’m a number and a list of stats just for your satisfaction Your eyes are burning right through Burning right through the back of my skull Your eyes are watching me until the day i die Till the day You own my face its saved to a database The colour of my eyes the lines the cracks the scars all features I can’t embrace this invasion of my space As the relentless search for data sweeps through darker reaches Your eyes are burning right through Burning right through the back of my skull Your eyes are watching me until the day i die Till the day I can try and hide but there’s always someone watching A thousand eyes around me and they capture everything My postcode my name my birthplace my street My workplace my face my enemies and my friends Your eyes are burning right through Burning right through the back of my skull Your eyes are watching me until the day i die Till the day

ASSEMBLY LINES AND MISERY Clock in Clock out Workin’ workin’ workin’ everyday Clock in Gotta gotta gotta get paid Clock out Every day every day every day every day Clock in and clock out and work your life away It’s a travesty You acquaint yourself with misery Day by day by day In a factory For a faceless corporate company Work your life a way Assembly lines and misery Day by day by day Doesn’t really seem like fun to me Work your life away A windowless room and a coffee machine Day by day by day Doesn’t really seem like living the dream Work your life away

ZOMBIE Joining the ranks of the living dead A smile with no feeling just to cover up the dread Of another day at work, the mundanity Clock in clock out It’s insanity! I lost my mind killed off by a lack of stimulation Lost initiative lost a shit to give, lost the will to live I’m fading out And I I’m dead inside From the boredom I try to hide A mindless zombie Rotting away decomposing As the clock slowly ticks rigor mortis setting in Another day at work, it’s killing me again The routine never changes, It’s driving me insane! I lost my mind, killed off by a lack of stimulation Lost initiative, lost a shit to give, lost the will to live I’m fading out And I I’m dead inside From the boredom I try to hide A mindless zombie

PAY YOUR SINS AWAY Pay your sins away God needs your money he could use another shrine Another church, cathedral or a statue would be fine A solid gold crucifix will keep you safe from hell Where the poor and tainted miscreants are left to dwell God wants your money yeah god wants it all Buy place in heaven with your hard-earned capital You can use your riches to cleanse your holy soul A generous donation negates lack of self control Look up at the sky get on your knees and pay pay pay pay pay your sins away You can live guilt free starting from today Pay your sins away God needs your money its to keep the devil out Help him with your savings if you want to be devout The holy golden gates of heaven, they don’t come cheap A prayer with no cash will make the baby Jesus weep God takes your money its all part of the deal See a wealthy pastor put your hands together kneel The adverts and the billboards are all calling out to you Mass marketing to keep the lords word in the public’s view Look up at the sky get on your knees and pay pay pay pay pay your sins away You can live guilt free starting from today Pay your sins away

BUILT TO BREAK I need a replacement its already outdated Yet another malfunction fucking data corruption Obsolescence, pre-planned its a devious method A way of shortening the lifespan of all sought-after goods Built to break in our hands Built to fall apart with a well placed mistake Intentional malfunctions that result in destruction Built fucking break Lost to decay it all soon rots away Inflated demands are rising, and the prices are climbing Never satisfied a newer model takes the reigns and all we do is fuel the fire we’re just oxygen to flames Built to break in our hands Built to fall apart with a well placed mistake Intentional malfunctions that result in destruction Built fucking break Disposable replaceable Its out of date a month has passed Nothing’s ever built to last Everything is set to expire Disposable replaceable Faults are there placed purposely Badly soldered circuitry Dodgy parts loosened screws and wires Obsolescence pre-planned its a devious method A way of shortening the lifespan of all sought-after goods.
