Lyrics


1. REALITIES OF WAR

War is a black hole to avoid
The realities of war are so disturbing
They declare it but they don''t hear
The cries of fear

War is a black hole to avoid

Mutilated corpses and charcoal flesh
Litter the battlefields
But their dead bodies
Are not to be found

War is a black hole to avoid




2. THEY DECLARE IT

They have the right what fuckin' right?
To say I must fight in their fuckin' wars?
They declare it!

Why should I fight in their fuckin' wars?
When they don''t consult my views of war?
They declare it!

Why should I fight in their fuckin' wars?
Why should I do their killing and be killed?
They declare it!

It's nothing to them if I were dead or alive
All they want is death or glory
They declare it!

They! They! They declare it!
They! They! They declare it!
They! They! They declare it!
They! They! They declare it!
War! War! War!




3. BUT AFTER THE GIG

Leather and sweat fills the atmosphere
Stretchin and drippin just to pogo too
The anarchy show they shout it out

There is no real music
And I'm just shoutin' and screamin'
But that is a response to an anarchist meeting
But after the gig is my true bender
Every shake back to me goes
Poor lambs this is a fuckin slaughter

You think that this is a turn of phrase
Realism is what we're preachin'
Are you really so afraid?




4. SOCIETY'S VICTIM

I'm just a victim of your wildest lies
Send in my photo with another name

I'm society''s victim

Nobody has to get you to buy it now
That's your concern and I don''t vote

I'm society's victim

I'm just the subject of discussion now
The one no-one admires

I'm society''s victim

I'm not just sufferin' from paranoia
It''s invented by you and them

I'm society's victim




5. FIGHT BACK

Bristols riots was a result of people''s anger
Towards the system

Fight the system fight back
Fight the system fight back

People die in police custody
Where''s the justice in that, don''t see none

Fight the system fight back
Fight the system fight back

We''ve been shit on far too long
There are no equalities, no freedom

Fight the system fight back
Fight the system fight back

Stand up fight for freedom
Stand up fight for your rights

Fight the system fight back
Fight the system fight back
Fight the system fight back




6. WAR'S NO FAIRYTALE

Government and queen are your only enemies
Don't be fooled by their plastic smiles

War's no fairytale, guns and bombs aren't fucking toys

They don't wanna know your views of war
They never stop to think about you

War's no fairytale, guns and bombs aren't fucking toys

They want you kept in the darkness
of the realities of war

War's no fairytale, guns and bombs aren't fucking toys

Meat flung yards apart from bodies
Are typical sights of war

War's no fairytale, guns and bombs aren't fucking toys




7. ALWAYS RESTRICTIONS

Twisting words words for their own gain
Led up another garden path
Kept in darkness and fed on crap

It's a messed up, fucked up fuckin' system

They're always there with their restrictions
Always there to put you down
Anarchy's the only solution now

It's a messed up, fucked up fuckin' system

Twisting words words for their own gain
Led up another garden path
Kept in darkness and fed on crap

It's a messed up, fucked up fuckin' system

They're always there with their restrictions
Always there to put you down
Anarchy's the only solution now

It's a messed up, fucked up fuckin' system




8. YOU TAKE PART IN CREATING THIS SYSTEM

You take part in creating this system
That we all must suffer in
We can't stop going round and round
We got to fix this rat race

This is the system you helped to create

They use you for corruption schemes
You're the unrealized and intended
You're the one the one they don't like
You let them know your fears

This is the system you helped to create

You ask me why I'm fighting the system
Why I'm preaching anarchy
I'm fighting for the freedom
Fighting for the rights
For the likes of you and me

This is the system you helped to create
This is the system you helped to create




9. RELIGION INSTIGATES

Well you ass crawling bastards suck my arse
Religion, Jesus Christ, it''s all a fucking farce

A stray bullet kills an innocent child
Nothing's gained and nothing's solved

Religion instigates this hate and war
As another victim life escapes through gunshot wounds

A stray bullet kills an innocent child
Nothing's gained and nothing's solved




10. DECONTROL

They fill you up with their fucking lies
You're the victims of government schemes
They take liberties they've no right to take
And you believe they''re oh so right
They only show concern when war is declared
Cos you're their power and glory
This whole affair''s so fucking unfair
It's so fucking sick

Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol

We're being shit on far too long
We're being shit on far too long
We're being shit on far too long
We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long




11. NO T.V. SKETCH

The limbs of a child stick out of debris
It is no T.V. sketch

No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch

It ain't the work of make up artists
This wounded flesh and blood

No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch

A child lies dead in a pool of blood
It is no T.V. sketch

No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch

It ain't the work of make up artists
This wounded flesh and blood

No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch
No no T.V. sketch




12. TOMORROW BELONGS TO US

You're so afraid to stand up
But without you they are nothing

Unite unite unite and fight
Tomorrow belongs to us
Unite unite unite and fight
Tomorrow belongs to us

Why should we suffer to fulfil
Their schemes of position and greed

Unite unite unite and fight
Tomorrow belongs to us
Unite unite unite and fight
Tomorrow belongs to us




13. NEVER AGAIN

A blinding light and firestorms agonised crying
Never never never again
Never never never again
Unanswered cries of help panic and desperation
Dazed and stricken survivors
Search for lost families
Choking dust crazy with thirst
Drinking from poisoned pools and streams




14. DEATH DEALERS

Britain among others
Deal in death
When selling arms to developing countries
Where there is urgent need for medical programmes




15. TWO MONSTROUS NUCLEAR STOCKPILES

Should east and west be ever divided
Resigned to livin' livin' in fear




16. STATE VIOLENCE STATE CONTROL

Kept in line with truncheons
Rifle butts and truncheons
This is state control this is state control

State control state control
This is state control

Beaten up behind closed doors
Cracked and bruised ribs bloody mouth
Cracked and bruised skull bloody mouth

State control state control
This is state control




17. DOOM'S DAY

And now the end the end is near
It's time to say our last goodbyes

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Is it reality or just a nightmare
Nightmare nightmare

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
No escape no escape

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Is it reality or just a nightmare
Nightmare nightmare

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day




18. WARNING

They stand on the outside looking in
They stand on the outside looking in
They stand on the outside and feed you shit
They stand on the outside and feed you shit
They keep you in the dark
Poison poison poison your mind
There is no truth in what they say
There is no truth in what they say
Propaganda and lies
Propaganda and lies




19. WHERE THERE IS A WILL

We as one hold the key to the door
The door to peace and freedom
Where there's a will there's a way




20. IN DEFENCE OF OUR FUTURE

We have no choice but to fight back
In defence of our future
In defence of our future
It''s up to you you and I
To make a stand to make a stand




21. ANGER BURNING

Inside I feel anger burn
Inside I feel anger burning
Burn burn burn
And the flame is burning burning higher




22. THE PRICE OF SILENCE

Living in a shadow shadow of fear

This is the price the price of silence

Waiting in death row one foot in the grave

This is the price the price of silence




23. BORN TO DIE IN THE GUTTER

Homeless and alone hungry and cold

Born to die to die in the gutter
Born to die to die in the gutter

Dying of exposure in the cold night

Born to die to die in the gutter
Born to die to die in the gutter

Homeless and alone hungry and cold

Born to die to die in the gutter
Born to die to die in the gutter

Left you for dead in the cold night

Born to die to die in the gutter
Born to die to die in the gutter




24. THE MORE I SEE YOU

From where I stand I see
Pain suffering and misery

The more I see the more I see
The less the less I believe

From where I stand I see
Hate violence and war

The more I see the more I see
The less the less I believe




25. PROTEST AND SURVIVE

The savage mutilation of the human race is set on course

Protest and survive
Protest and survive

It is up to us to change that course

Protest and survive
Protest and survive




26. IGNORANCE

Propaganda on the T.V.
Propaganda in the News
To keep us all divided
To keep us all in line

Your ignorance is
Ignorance is their bliss

Slaves by your own compulsion
Puppets in a playing hand
Slaves by your own compulsion
Puppets in a playing hand




27. NO COMPROMISE

Just like little children
They put themselves away
From any compromise
From any compromise

No compromise no let up
No let up in sight
No compromise no let up
No let up in sight

They stand so proud and tall
So full of themselves
Legends in their own minds
Legends in their own minds

Waiting from a distance
In twisted pleasure
Taking pleasure in our pain
Taking pleasure in our pain

To satisfy their mania
Children little children
Fall like fallen leaves
Fall like fallen leaves
