Track Name: Warmonger
Not making us safer
You’re making things worse
You’re endless need for war
Has become our curse

War monger

Bombing from the skies
A simple act of terror
Killing to achieve your aims
A bloody act of murder
Track Name: Such A Pretty Face
Such a pretty face - all made up with blood
Such pretty face - ruined by death
Look into their eyes - swollen with tears
Look into their eyes - Is there no hope left?

They are still experimenting - Animals are still suffering

Such a unique life - tortured to an end
Such a unique life - you had no right to take
Can’t you see the pain - behind their painted lips
Can’t you see their pain - The choice is yours to take

For your pretty face - animals are suffering

Such a pretty face - all made up with blood
Such pretty face - ruined by hate
Look into your eyes - just the same as theirs
Look into your eyes - time to liberate

They are still experimenting - Animals are still suffering
For your pretty face - animals are suffering
Time to see the pain and wipe away the suffering
Track Name: Armchair Racism
Read too many tabloids and your mind is full of hate
Starting to believe it’s you that makes this country great

But you’ve been told a lie, hooked into a con
And if this country can be great,
It won’t be great until the day you’ve gone.

Start looking for scape goats and you’ll find them everywhere
The World is full of problems we must take an equal share

But you’ve been sold a con, hooked into a lie
And if this country can be great
It won’ the great until the day you die
Track Name: Car Crash TV
Can't face any more
Of the visual assault
Brain turned to mush
And it's your fucking fault

Twisted and broken, unable to flee
Cut from the wreckage of car crash TV

Wave upon wave
of soporific crap
Endless inertia
Enmeshed in your trap

Twisted and broken, unable to flee
Cut from the wreckage of car crash TV

Vacuous celebrity
Sickening plots
Welded to the couch
While my mind slowly rots
Track Name: History Repeats
Like 1933
Never learn from history
Sleepwalking to the right
Might is never right

Ruled by an elite
Who's power we must defeat
Now vote with your feet
Get out on the street
Track Name: Bullshit Detected
We're not a Hollywood soundtrack
Won't be featured in a video game
This ain't no lucrative comeback
And we're not looking for fame

Bullshit detected

No tour bus, no rider
No solo in this song
You'll find us in the garage
With the bullshit detector on
Track Name: Theft
Only care about your friends
Taking money from the poor
Watching your share dividends
Pushing us into the floor

Line them up against the wall
Bankers, wankers, one and all

Skimming off such huge amounts
Hiding politician’s names
Opening offshore bank accounts
Telling us we’re all to blame

Line them up against the wall
Bankers, wankers, one and all

Desperate people locked away
circumstance their only crime
While you make your get away
It should be you who’s doing time

Line them up against the wall
Bankers, wankers, one and all
WANKERS
Track Name: Government Stinks
Knee jerk reactions made by jerks
A government not for everyone
Nothing you say ever seems to work
We'll keep protesting 'til you're gone

Government stinks
The country sinks
Government lies
The country dies

Knee jerk decisions to please the masses
Everything you say makes you seem like fascists
A government not for everyone
We'll keep protesting until you've gone

Government stinks
The country sinks
Government lies
The country dies

A tabloid press to promote your lies
Hatred wins as compassion dies
No interest in what's best for all
We'll keep protesting until you fall
Track Name: If The Cap Fits
Do you think our songs
Are all about you?

If the cap fits (wear it)

Do you think our songs
Are written about you?

If the cap fits, then wear it!
