Sick Of It All

Outtakes for the Outcast tracks

Lyrics

1. I BELIEVE

I believe that joy defines success
I'm aware of what causes my happiness
I believe the distance of my reach is far beyond what
I ever dreamed

What I dreamed shaped my creed
All I need is self-belief
It's all you ever really need

I believe their world is misery
I'm aware they speak the language of despair
I believe in seeing through the fear
The fear of the future that's breeding mediocrity

What I dreamed shaped my creed
All I need is self-belief
It's all you ever really need

The opposition fuels the fire
And only strengthens my desire
To break away from what's expected
And throw it in their face
The opposition makes me dream
Of how much better I can be
To outshine their drab existence
And throw it in their face




2. STOOD FOR NOTHING

Desperate Little You
We've seen the act and it won't do
Helpless Pathetic you
It's always something, It's always something

Stood For Nothing (x4)

Show some pride, show something
You got no heart, you got nothing
Help me stay true so I'll never be like you

Stood for Nothing (x4)
(You stood for nothing)

It's all good I still believe in myself, humanity
It's all good I still believe - that's the way it's gotta be

Stood For Nothing (x4)
Piss in the dirt




3. BORSTAL BREAKOUT (SHAM 69 COVER)

I'm sitting in this cell for something I didn't do
And all I can think of is baby I think of you
Don't worry baby coming back for you

There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout

Now I've got the chance I don't care about what I do
When I done them things I done them just for you
And now I'm getting out coming back for you

There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout

Well now I'm over the wall I'm nearly home
I'm coming through that door coming back to you
Now I'm nearly home nearly back for you

There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout
There's gonna be a borstal breakout




4. STRAIGHT AHEAD

I'm for the people, I stand for them
If everybody learns to give a helping hand
You can count on me, your fellow man
In our fight for unity we stand

Look inside yourself and try to find
A caring person with a positive mind (x2)

The way I think, the way I live
I walk straight ahead, I have something to give
Always there to hold my hand
Because I care, I'll take a fuckin' stand




5. ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE (THE MISFITS COVER)

Walls start closing in around you
My twins of evil
They shake you by the collarbone
Then snap you by the ribcage
And broken bodies in a death rock dance hall
Please be my partner
Eyeballs pop, accelerated blood beat
Veins a-shaking
And all hell breaks loose
Yeah, evil is as evil does and who
Yeah, who but me could write this book of cruel
I send my murdergram
To all these monster kids
It comes right back to me
And it's signed in there parent's blood
And all hell breaks loose
Yeah, my heart is a-breaking loose
Yeah, my whole world's breaking loose
Yeah, and evil is as evil does ans who
Yeah, but who but me could write this book of cruel
I send my murdergram
To all these monster kids
It comes right back to me
And it's signed in their parents' blood
And broken bodies in a death rock dance hall
Please be my partner
And eyeballs pop, accelerated blood beat
Veins a-shaking
And all hell breaks loose
Yeah, my heart is breaking loose
Yeah, my whole world's breaking loose
Yeah, evil is as evil does ans who
Yeah, but who but me could write this book of cruel
I said my whole world's breaking loose
Yeah, my whole world's breaking loose
Yeah, my whole world's breaking loose
Yeah, my whole world's breaking
All hell breaks loose.




6. MY LITTLE WORLD

Stand still - nobody move
Don't look around, you'll ruin the mood
Progress, a dirty word
Same old shit, safe and secure

(Shut out, shut down)
Shut out, shut down don't wanna hear it
(Shut out, shut down)
Please don't take it away

Stubborn, set in my ways
A limited life don't want to change
Slow down it's not time to go
Don't want to leave my little world

What makes us afraid of progress that is made
To really understand you've got to free your mind
Can't let us get stuck in a generic rut
With a narrow view you've got to free your mind
Consistency can be such a wonderful thing
As long as you are open and you free your mind




7. SOUL BE FREE

Soul be free
Not chained in any way by petty jealousy
Soul be free
Not bound in any way by selfishness or greed

The bonds were formed over the years
Suddenly so flimsy and weak
So did they ever exist?

I just watched as my life was criticized
So I could judge who had my happiness in mind

My best interest isn't your best interest
Count me out if I'm to serve you further
My best interest isn't your best interest
Let me out if it's that one-sided

Soul be free
Not chained in any way by petty jealousy
Soul be free
Not bound in any way by selfishness or greed

Let them do what they do and make a list
Check it out and see what friends amount to shit

My best interest isn't your best interest
Count me out if I'm to serve you further
My best interest isn't your best interest
Let me out if it's that one-sided

I want the best for the souls that are close to me
I won't stand in the way of their happiness
I want the best for the souls that are dear to me
I won't stand in the way of their freedom
Their calling, their destiny

Soul be free(x4)




8. BLATTY

Shorter!
Wider!
Browner!
Greener!
And more blatty than a human egg (x4)
A Human Egg




9. 86

I want you to feel it
I want you to mean it
I don't want a closed mind which would
Just bring us down

Hit you right and hit the intellect
Hit you where it has some meaning
Understanding the philosophy
Know and see the fundamental history

86 - 86 Hardcore rebuke
Negative element - turn bad to good

There's so much to offer
So often looked over
Mistaken outsiders just see all the anger

Stay outsiders and stay that way
In your only dimension
We'll enjoy all the benefits
This community will keep it in the family

86 - 86 Hardcore rebuke
Negative element - turn bad to good
Turn bad to good

Foolish action 86 - 86
Macho faction 86 - 86
There's a dunce in the bunch, grab your shit
Hit the bricks
There's a dunce in the bunch, grab your shit
You're 86

Are you self conscious?
Think we're forgiving unneeded schisms?
NO!




10. TARGET (HUSKER DU COVER)

(No lyrics available)




11. RIP OFF (SHAM 69 COVER)

All foreign feet down Oxford Street
Faces from places I've never been
All the shops and restaurants
Ask for money that I haven't got

It's just a fake make no mistake
A rip off me a new Rolls for them

Now you kids get to grips
Don't wanna buy or eat no more
Kings Road shopping makes us poor
Time is running out for us




12. WORKING CLASS KID (LAST RESORT COVER)

(No lyrics available)




13. NEVER MEASURE UP

No one can see you, no one can see
No one can sense humility
No one can hear you, no one can hear
Inadequacy's in the air

The greatest fear for you to be
Exposed for all the world to see

Never-measure-never-measure-never-measure
Never-measure-up

I know they see me, i know they see
I know they sense humility
I know they hear me, i know they hear
Now i face my greatest fear




14. THE FUTURE IS MINE

If you want to save me leave me alone
With your sick polluted soul
If you want to save me leave me alone
The future's mine

It's such a waste of precious time, precious years
Precious feelings that are misdirected
And should be disconnected
It's such a shame to learn a lesson
After giving of yourself in all so many ways
To find it didn't pay

If you want to save me leave me alone
With your sick polluted soul
If you want to save me leave me alone - now

Don't want to compromise myself
Low self image hasn't got the best of confidence
At least not yet it hasn't
Only the least affected can be the most respected
Just to escape is worth the temporary pain and hurt

If you want to save me leave me alone
With your sick polluted soul
If you want to save me leave me alone
I've had enough this time
The future is mine
My friends objectively
Told me again and again about the things
That i refused to See




15. JUST LOOK AROUND

The question they keep asking me
How can one so young be so bitter and angry
Well, the answer is plain to see
Maybe if they wern't so blind they'd see what i see
I see the homeless livin' out on the street
On every corner they're asking for money
I try to help them whenever i can
But sometimes i can't afford to help myself
I see diseases and modern plagues of our times
The greed of our leaders has made them blind
To our problems
They spend millions overseas,
People right here are fightin' wars everyday

I see the whites that hate the blacks
Blacks against the jews, race against religion
And the're all too blind to see

When we fight each other it puts all of them at ease
It keeps us so busy, so they can do what they please
Election time comes and they're out for votes
That's when you see and hear from them the most
This is what they're calling a democracy
That's just another word for hypocrisy
We keep fallin' for the bait
When we realize, it's always too late

I see the whites that hate the blacks
Blacks that hate the jews, brother against brother
And they're all to blind to see

As the rich get richer, the poor goin' hungry
I've seen the toll it takes on the workingman's family
Education system that's obsolete
Can't hold a kid's interest or keep 'em off the street
See a father's fear, hear a mother's cry
What kind of a nation lets their children die
Government's corrupt and full of red tape
Then you're gonna ask me why i hate

Why don't you open up your eyes so you can see
Open up your ears so you can hear
Take a look around and you will find
Take a look around and you will find out why
