DIY Revolution

the revolution's upon us
but it's not what you think
there won't be any slogans,
protests, prophets spilling ink
this time there won't be leaders
no cause to join or lead
just walk away from where they need you
no young minds to warp or feed
this revolution needs no push
no spark to start the flame
the revolution's here and all we know
is we don't think the same

like brick by brick in ancient Egypt
pyramids were made
but like them our's aren't built for us
so fuck the pharaohs we're not slaves

your band's a revolution
so fuck what people say
so's your zine, your record label
no one can take that away

the capitalist system's fucked
cause you're not pushed by wealth
just use this tactic with all your work
this new world's begun now
so DO IT YOURSELF!

this time there won't be leaders
no cause to join or lead
just walk away from where they need you
no young minds to warp or feed
this revolution needs no push
no spark to start the flame
the revolution's here and all we know
is we don't think the same

your band's a revolution
so fuck what people say
so's your zine, your record label
no one can take that away

Down In It

what's up with this shit?
what's up with this shit?
i'm getting too cold
i'm getting too old
what's up with this shit?

people talk about how they're down in it
people talk about how they are with it
all they know is what they're told
never too young and never too old

down in it
down in it

i hate when people talk about the way they are
when they talk about their brand new car
holy shit! never mind it
i think it's gonna make me spit

down in it
down in it
what's up with this shit?
what's up with this shit?
my mind is bold
it's what i'm told
what's up with this shit?

i think i'll run away with a gun
step on the gas and have some fun
i'll shoot those fuckers
right in the face
and speed away without a trace

down in it
down in it

i cannot take this shit any more
get pissed off make a loud noise with the door
i see the end is finally near
i was never able to see so clear

down in it
down in it
down in it
down in it

Punk Rock High (Part II)

i'll never forget
the way you spoke to me
condescending asshole
you never broke me
i've gone a long way
and you're still sitting there
i dealt with anger
when you did not even care

i don't plan to sit back and wonder
what it would be like if you'd pushed me under
and now those days are long past
and i've moved on and grown
but not into the mold you made
and not into the life that you've known

those days are getting darker
those times are long ago
those nights, consumed with anger
i had time to let them go
in hindsight things are clearer
when the details fade from view
my goals are drawing nearer
now I know i'll never be like you

i had beliefs
like you could understand
we can't all think like you, no
we can't all hold your dirty hand
you chose to live your life alone
and reap the benefits
by now you know that money's cold
your security's not worth shit

and so i sat there
like time and time before
punished for my freedom
and for my dreams of more
i could miss my doorway
you were sure to let me know
but i am not your whore
so fuck you and your fucking window
of opportunity
it's not opportune for me
and i don't have the answers
but you don't have the means to set me free
when freedom's what we want
but free is what you're not
some things can't be bought with cash
especially when cash is all you've got

in hindsight things are clearer
when the details fade from view
my goals are drawing nearer
now i know i'll never be like you
i know i'll never be like you
i know i'll never be like you
i'll never be like you

as you knew well
i've been through hell
so live your life
don't live mine
don't live mine
don't live... mine

We Don't Need This Structure!

you've outstayed your welcome
you don't represent us

you asked me for my patience
not knowing what you'd get
a paranoid amalgamation's
got you by the dick
you've got your cops and bullshit laws
and now they weigh you down
you'd think your forefathers saw this
when they spread this around

so what has all this brainwashing got you?
it hasn't got you shit
a sea of dissent waste's your time
as life's sucked from your tits
so wouldn't it be best for all
if we just dropped this game?
a hundred years look back on now
with pride and not with shame

all government's
still government
no government's
free government

i don't need you
you don't need me
i won't rule you
we can both be free

this twisted system taught me
learn all that i can
some you try to keep in darkness
lucky one i am
but when it came for me to rule
i couldn't bring myself to it
no need to keep the heirarchy
and make the powers switch

now it's time
revolution
no more masters
overcome this
no more slaves
fuck this status
no more classes
new ideas
the time has come now
fuck civilization!

Symphony Of Tragedy

one's too many
but fifty's absurd
how many women must be screaming
before they cannot be ignored

a sunny sunday
the heart of central park
relax, feel safe
the cops will do their part
a gathering, it should be fun
but our society
breeds sexism

so tell me who's to blame
and tell me what's the cause
men with no shame?
could it be our "peacekeepers"

something's wrong when we can't gather
without violence
what the fuck's the matter?

what's going on?
what's gone wrong?

when pain entertains
we have lost touch
people become property
and are looked upon as such

something's going on
something's gone wrong
something's going way wrong
and i don't know why

some men must be creeps
all I know's the problem runs
much more deep
than men's fragile libidos
taken way to far
some things need to end
before they start
if our culture breeds
complacency
we can't expect society
ever to be free
never to be free
never to be free

don't go out
no one's safe
tonight
tonight

the stage is set
you can bet
we'll all do our part
every sexist act
instrument
in this symphony
of tragedy

this will be the way
unless we can change

cops who must fear for their jobs
because of racist acts involved
politics have shaped their actions
not morals or even infractions
"there for the people" but hearts aren't their guide
on wonder some assholes got a free ride
sexist acts occur, or worse, of course
unless we kill them at the source
stop treating others like your toys
and no more boys will be boys
