Napalm Death

The Peel Sessions - Double Value tracks

Lyrics


First Session (September 13. 1987)

1. The Kill

There's nothing left to gain
You have just been led

The kill, after death, the kill

The shit you were promised
Means nothing now you're dead

The kill, after death, the kill




2. Prison Without Walls

Trapped
Inside your head
Insular, living dead

Existing for a purpose you'll never find
Inducements, distortions contorting your mind

External sources maintain control
Programmed existance, fulfill your role

You've got a brain, shake off the reigns
Smash the shackles, break the chains




3. Dead

Die!




4. Deceiver

Becoming wary of your lies
Your disguise the truth belies

Only fooling yourself
Pretend to bite the hand that feeds
But you won't discard your security

The transparency of your fantasy




5. Lucid Fairytale

Delude yourself with the notion
That life's viewed defiantly through your eye
Subconsciously following the flock
From which appearance is the only exemption

The stagnant illusion of change
Concealed behind your disguise

What's perspicious on the surface
Is artificial inside
When views are merely symbolic
Of an image you hide behind

The stagnant illusion of change
Concealed behind your disguise




6. In Extremis





7. Blind To The Truth

Behind the transition
Lies a sense of ambiguity

Why hide behind the truth
Of what you are?

Your character becomes distorted
In the quest for an identity

Why hide behind the truth
Of what you are?




8. Negative Approach

Nothing I can say
That hasn't already been said
Generic words and thoughts
Similarly expressed

This primitive stance
Feelings of angst
Matters relating
To circumstance

"Unfounded reactions
Just part of the faction"
Conform?
I wouldn't give you the satisfaction




9. Common Enemy

Bitching
Back Biting
Senseless Infighting

"United we stand
Divided we fall"
The common enemy that overshadows us all




10. Obstinate Direction





11. Life?

Never hope nor choice
Emotionless and cold
This is life

Illusions shattered
An existance of lies
Constant struggle
Freedom denied

At their feet
Submission
No sanctuary in death
Drugged up fucked up
Is that all you're worth?




12. You Suffer

You suffer
But why?




Second Session (March 08. 1988)

13. Multinational Corporations

Multinational Corporations
Genocide of the starving nations




14. Instinct Of Survival

Advertise the product you make
Never give but always take
Kill and lie for security
Your shit on supermarket shelves to see

Instinct of survival

Advertise the product you make
Never give but always take
Clingfilmed flesh and genocide
A contented life while millions die

Instinct of survival

The multinational corporation
Makes its profit from the starving nation
Indigenous people become their slaves
From their births into their graves

The multinational corporation
Takes its profits from the starving nation
Another product for you to buy
You'll keep paying until you die




15. Stigmatized

Blissfully ignorant
Content and unaware
Not your problem
Why should you care?
Not normal
An easy target for release
Infected from birth
This sickening disease

You sanctimonious slime
Understanding discarded
The truth is clear
It's you that's retarded




16. Parasites

Permissive slaves
To their methods of greed
From our needs
The leeches feed

When will you see?
We'll never be free
While we sanction
This plutocracy




17. Moral Crusade

A superiority complex
Pious, holy to the hilt
Outward displays of cleanliness
Masking their inner feelings of hate and guilt

Your morality is hypocrasy
Obsessive self esteem
Enforcing your ideals
Your puritanical dream

Gather your flock
Gullable fools
Dictate restrictions




18. Worlds Apart





19. M.A.D.

Stark, bleak, wasted
Devastated

When?

All life
Totally annihilated

Die!

Does it have to be this way
Is this the price we're gonna pay?




20. Divine Death

Cleansing impurity
Siezure of insecurity

Divine death

Individuality disabled
Blinded by fables

Divine death

Easy prey
You will pay
Mourn life's loss
Rotting on that cross

Divine death






21.C.S. (Conservative Shithead) (Eminent)

Arrogant
Ignorant
Affluent
Desensitized
Devoid and blind
All compassion nullified

Paragon of virtue
(Paragon of shit)




22. Control

There is a fascist
Inside of you
Controlling your life
And what you do

Fascist control

There is a fascist
Inside your head
Controlling your thoughts
Until your death

Fascist control




23. Walls

(SIEGE)

Walls that part humanity
Over which I cannot see
Walls as old as history
Cast a shadow over me

Break down the walls
Take down them all
Break down the
Take down the
Shake down the

Walls that divide the nations
Keep them in isolation
Segregate the populations
Beat down the opposition

Break down the walls
Take down them all
Break down the
Take down the
Shake down the

Barriers that divide
Trapping me inside
Bring apartheid to an end
Cross the border
Make a friend

Break down the walls
Take down them all
Break down the
Take down the
Shake down the walls




24. Raging In Hell





25. Conform Or Die





26. S.O.B.

S-O-B!
