Lyrics

 

The Unintended Consequences of Economic Sanctions

We all have a motive
What’s your fuckin motive?
What’s your role in control
In a land you have no vote in
Half a million children dead
Albright said it’s worth it
Consequence
Self sefense
Boil over
Blowback
Global Blowback in your face. The Human Race
Global Blowback
When all is lost at a human cost there’s nothing to gain, nothing to lose
All is lost at a human cost. Nothing left to fucking lose
Your family. Your friends. Your life. Your means.
Your possessions. Your pride. Your ideologies.
When you pay with your life, what are you affording?
Residual embargoes are a message we’re deporting
Palaces are stiffed with lies
Rotting bodies breeding flies
Dictators will still ignore
While sanctions crush the people’s lives
Global Blowback in your face. The Human Race
Global Blowback
When all is lost at a human cost there’s nothing to gain, nothing to lose
All is lost at a human cost. Nothing left to fucking lose.

 

Improvised Explosive Device

Drivin in my plated hummer towards Kabul
Passin all the dusty men, boys and mules
Shrapnel from a landline takes out my man
Innocence dismembered in Afghanistan
It’s my IED
Gonna make you scream
Gonna make you bleed
Shock and awe yea
Civilian targeted warfare
Shock and awe yea
There’s no fucking difference
There’s no us, no them
Bombing at Baghdad University
On the day I’m supposed to defend my PhD
Buildings are in rubble reduced to the ground
Professors body parts  are laying around
It’s my IED
Gonna make you scream
Gonna make you bleed

 

REVOLUTION

It’s time to be heard
We’ve got our demands
Assemble all your nerve
Revolution is at hand
Minority and Queer Rights
¡Viva Indigenous!
Politicians can’t hear
They’re hiding behind opulence
Cops interfere and streets are filled with violence
It’s time to revolt
to be heard
We’ve got our demands
Assemble all your nerve
Revolution is at hand
The laissez-faire economy don’t  have your back
Perverse subsidies for Halliburton, Cheney’s ass
Oil companies are spewing out particulates
It’s time to revolt!
This world is nobody’s but ours
We can build another way
Start the Revolution
Join the Revolution
Fight  the Revolution
Win the Revolution
Join! Fight! Win! Now!
National Health
Preventing more catastrophe
Share the wealth
A grassroots up economy
Liberate trade
end the bullshit tariff charade
It’s time to revolt!

 

FOREIGN POLICY

In the name of defence
In the name of democracy
Throwing away lives
Trampling liberty
Geneva is a joke
Kyoto don’t mean shit
We’ll sign a global treaty
But we won’t fucking ratify it
Propping up abusive regimes
Ends to a monetary means
Fund you while you do as we say
And hang you the next day
Bloodstained hands of the corrupt
Use exploitation as a front
Expose the shadow government
The price to buy back our world is going up
Hidden empires of disgrace
Perpetuate a dehumanizing, colonizing rat race
Leaders transpire, taking down the liars
Running out of kindling for our global fires

Fuck the world cops
When will it stop
Watching the dollar drop
When will we wake up
Abu Gharib, SOA, Covert Operations by the CIA
Israel, Palestine, Maintaining artificial lines
Lend and spend, forcefully amend
Remember that Rome fell in the end.

 

PROPAGANDA

Propaganda fuels the fire
Punishment condemned by the liar
Underprivileged do your bidding
Selfish follies cannot be hidden
From Us
Watch Fox News
Get depressed
Take your pills
Every Day!
Sit there in your leather chair
Another vacation without a care
Now you know that it’s too late
Thoughts of lives all lain to waste
Watch Fox News
Get depressed
Take your pills
Every Day!
It’s time to rehabilitate
Where the losers now
Because of you
Shouldn’t even be here
You know the truth
It’s the youth that feel the noose

We will not be left behind
We will sever these evil lies
Propaganda

 

TRANSPLANT OF THE SLOTH

Live shit eat fuck die trash burn
I don’t care what you say
Live shit eat fuck die trash burn
Things are gonna go my way
Live shit eat fuck die trash burn
I’m just hangin in the trees
Live shit eat fuck die trash burn
Watchin moss grow on me
Life so inane it’s hard to explain
Try to smile but there’s nothing there
Breakin the chain. Free deranged!
Looking back at a blank stare
Life so inane it’s hard on the brain
Get yourself, if just for fun,
Breakin the chain. Set yourself free.
A band new heart and a new left lung
It’s a Transplant of the Sloth
A Platypus and a white-winged moth

 

RIVAL CORPORATE SOCIETY

Resist don’t let big business choose
the truth you read your daily news
fight don’t let the corporate scheme
rule your life influence your dream
Think it must be wrong
my local business gone
Value your concern
the price you pay more than you earned
Rival corporate society
Resist corporate society
Rethink corporate society
Rival corporate society
Stand against the current strong
don’t let them take the family farm
Find your corporate conscience
we demand more than profits
Choose be careful what you buy
your dollars fund the corporate lie
Speak with your purchases
boycott the ignorance
Rival corporate society
Resist corporate society
Rethink corporate society
Rival corporate society

 

CUT THE JUG

Cut the jug, bleed it out
Cut the jug, bleed it out
Cut the jug and bleed it out
One by one down the line
One by one they’re smart as swine
As their flesh to the knife
No lives were lived to sacrifice

Nine to a cage nine to a cage half is their age
Cut off their wings, cut off their legs
Peck out their eyes no comprimise
Nine to cage nine to a cage
Cut the jug, bleed it out
Cut the jug and bleed it out

 

MARINA FOLKS

This is a song about douchebags

 

TOXIC ASPHYXIATION

Trapped in waste trapped waste, we’re trapped in waste, our lives constrained
Burning plastic, burning planet, fate is wrapped in cellophane
Nothing can be bought or sold without compulsory branding
Your face takes on the imprint of the bag you are inhaling
Supply supply supply supply what no-one is demanding
All this waste taking up space, constantly expanding
Pelletized components of our modulittled lives
Defects are an effect, that should come as no surprise
Lickin plastic bathroom stalls
Sippin on bisiphenol
Plastic people plastic pets
Generation plastic next
Open wide it’s time to consume
Your daily dose of polycarbon crude
Gyre gyre funeral pyre
Roving oceans of our bile
Unnecessary evils in our necessary goods
Leeching poison ions into propylene packaged foods
Hey little baby what you really need is another dose of melamine!
Nothing can be bought or sold without compulsory branding
Your face takes on the imprint of the bag you are inhaling
Pelletized components of our modulittled lives
Defects are an effect, that should come as no surprise
It’s an abscess on your head
Your face looks like the walking dead
Saran wrapped corpse in tupperware
Surrounded by plastic everywhere
Toxic Toxic Toxic Asphyxiation!
Toxic Toxic Toxic Asphyxiation!

 

Ballistic Bike

Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!
Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!
Critical Mass!!!!
Never stop. up a hill. on your right. through a light. Underpass!
Don’t hit me with no gaddamn car
I’m not a fucking hipster
I don’t shop at trackstar
This old frame takes me everywhere
strap in yr feet and take a dare

Flyin down the open road
Spin my feet away we go

Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!
Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!
Critical Mass!!!!
Never stop. up a hill. on your right. through a light. Underpass!
Take the road with a biker flock
Driver gives you shit
Pop him w/ yr U-lock
Cops bust me speedin in a 45
That’s the kinda shit makes you feel alive

Flyin down the open road
Spin my feet away we go
Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!
Crazy bike! Ballistic Bike!

 

WAR MONGER PIG FUCKS

This attack is no new game
This war plays out the fucking same
Big fat fucks in their high up places
Manipulating lives from strategic bases
Taking the young in their dire straits
See an opportunity to perpetuate
Give them guns and brainwash their minds
Set them free on the front lines
Mowed down left and right
Long term dreams smashed
Blight!
Face the facts at this moment right now
It should be us the people
Taking our leaders down
This fight is wrong and it’s on our dime
Our hands soaked with blood
Yours and mine
Look real close at what’s going on
It’s been happening since before Vietnam
It’s been happening behind our backs
In front of our faces from all kinds of places
Manipulation though a common fear
The sky is falling, the end is near
Take cover now and give us your young
So we can kill the innocent, with guns!
Face the facts at this moment right now
It should be us the people
Taking our leaders down
This fight is wrong and it’s on our dime
Our hands soaked with blood
Yours and mine
There’s no way to do this nice
They’ve walked over us once
They’ll walk over us twice
In their minds we’re hippies or sheep
In front of TVs awake but asleep
Passive voices will get us nowhere
Rise up, speak up, do your share
Face the facts at this moment right now
It should be us the people
Taking our leaders down
This fight is wrong and it’s on our dime
Our hands soaked with blood
Yours and mine

1975

A nostalgic love song
