Track Name: Word About Town
THE WORD ABOUT TOWN IS THEY’RE THE BOYS IN BLUE
NOW RUN NOW BOY OR WHAT YOU GONNA DO?
THE WORD ABOUT TOWN IS THAT THEY’LL STITCH YOU UP
STICK YOU WHILE YOU’RE DOWN AND SLAM ON THE CUFFS
THE WORD ABOUT TOWN IS YOU’RE GOING DOWN
THE WORD ABOUT TOWN IS YOU’RE GOING DOWN

PROSECUTION SEEKING RETRIBUTION
INNOCENT ‘TIL PROVEN WITH ONE EXCLUSION
A PREDETERMINED OUTCOME WITH ONE CONCLUSION
YOU’RE DAMNED NOW BOY BY YOUR INSTITUTION
DIDN’T REALLY MATTER HOW YOUR LAWYER FOUGHT
WHEN YOU’RE FORCED BEFORE A BIASED COURT
AN EIGHTY POUND FINE FOR A SECTION FOUR
BUT THEY KID YOU NO CHANCE WHEN THE PRESS IS BOUGHT

CREATORS OF CIVIL LIBERTIES
LIE IN BED WITH PRIVATE SECURITY FIRMS
PHILIP MAY'S G4S LINE THE POCKETS OF THE ALREADY RICH

HOW MUCH MORE ARE WE WILLING TO GIVE?
Track Name: Fighting Crime
YOU SAID YOU'D JOIN THE FORCE
TO HELP THOSE POOR AND NEEDY
BUT THE FORCE THEN CHANGED THEIR LAWS
THAT TURNED YOU SAVAGE AND GREEDY
NOW YOU STAMP YOUR FASCIST FEET
ON THE FACES OF THE ABUSED
TREAT THEM LIKE A PIECE OF MEAT
THEN BEAT 'EM TILL THEY'RE BRUISED
NOW YOU'RE FEELING BIG
A MAN THAT'S ALL GROWN UP
BUT YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING PIG
PLACING CHARGES THAT ARE ALL BLOWN UP

FIGHTING CRIME
PROTECTING PEOPLE
YEAH RIGHT

NOW THE SMILES WIPED OFF YOUR FACE
REPLACED BY A STERN BROW
AND VIOLENCE HAS REPLACED
THAT YOUNG BOY FROM THE TOWN
NOW YOU WEAR YOUR STAB PROOF VEST
AND LET YOUR TRUNCHEON DO THE REST
IT'S YOUR VIOLENCE I DETEST
AND I'LL SPIT ON YOUR FUCKING CREST
I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR AUTHORITY
IF IT MEANS FUCKING THOSE IN POVERTY
CARVE A KNIFE THROUGH COMMUNITIES
WITH YOUR NARROW MINDED SCRUTINY

FIGHTING CRIME
PROTECTING PEOPLE
YEAH RIGHT

YOU THINK YOU'RE FUCKING BIG
BUT YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING PIG
YOU THINK YOU'RE FUCKING BIG
BUT YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING PIG
Track Name: No Sleep
WHEN YOUR STATE BACKS THE CHURCH FOR AN ARBITRARY CAUSE
IT'S THE POOR THAT FEEL THE HURT AS THEY PASS INHUMAN LAWS
THEY'LL SILENCE YOU WITH BIG WORDS AND TELL YOU THEY ARE YOURS
THEN THEY'LL STAND BACK AND WATCH AS YOUR YOUNG ARE SENT TO WARS

THERE'S A STIRRING IN THE WHITE HOUSE
NO SLEEP AT NUMBER 10
THE FAT CATS ARE WORRIED THAT THEY WON'T GET BACK IN
THERE'S AN ANGER ON THE STREETS
NOW PEOPLE START TO MASS
WE'RE COMING FOR YOU FAT CATS

SAYING DO UNTO OTHERS AS THEY'D DO UNTO YOU
BUT YOUR READING FROM THE BIBLE AND GIVING TO THE FEW
YOU'RE ALL SICK TWISTED BASTARDS YOU GIVE ME DEJA VU
YOU SOUND LIKE MARGARET THATCHER, REAGAN AND FRIEDMAN TOO
YOU LIED AND LIED UNTIL YOUR TONGUE CAME OUT
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOUR POLICIES ABOUT?
MORE LIES ON LIES AND ALL THE SHIT YOU SPOUT
WE'RE WORKED AND WORKED YET WE STILL EARN NOWT

YOU INDOCTRINATE THE MASSES TO SERVE YOUR NEW REGIME
BUT THE GOVERNMENT IS FAILING IT'S BURSTING AT THE SEEMS
WHEN YOU FALL, WE WILL RISE, THIS YOU CAN BELIEVE
ARM YOURSELVES SUPPORT THE CAUSE AND THEN WE WILL BE FREE

I DREAM OF THE DAY WE CAN SMASH OUR STATE
NO WORDS CAN EXPLAIN MY FEELINGS AND HATE
YOUR AUSTERE MEASURES THEY JUST DON'T RELATE
BUT WHEN YOU REALISE YOU'RE GONNA BE TOO LATE
Track Name: Colour Black
IF THIS IS MAN
I GIVE YOU DEATH
SAID THE WOLF
TO THE LAMB
HERE'S YOUR LAST BREATH
DON'T PROVOKE
THIS AIN'T NO JOKE
TRY NOT TO CHOKE
ON FOSSIL FUEL SMOKE

FOR TONIGHT WE'LL FIGHT THE EARTH
NOT FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE
WE WILL REBIRTH
AND LIFT THIS HATED CURSE

FOR TONIGHT IT IS OUR TURN
FOR TONIGHT WE'LL FIGHT THE EARTH
FOR TONIGHT WE STAND UNITED
TONIGHT WE'LL GO DOWN FIGHTING

THEY MAY TRY
TO TURN THEIR BACKS
WHILST WE FLY OUR FLAGS
THE COLOUR OF BLACK
BUT WE'LL STARE
OUR ENEMIES
RIGHT IN THEIR EYES
BECAUSE TONIGHT WE'LL TAKE
NO-ONE ALIVE
Track Name: Welfare Warfare
DROPPING BOMBS ON HUMAN BEINGS
THEIR ONLY CRIME BEING FLEEING
A PLACE YOU SAID YOU FREED
YOUR WAR ON DRUGS IS
MAKING ME NEED WEED
DON'T BELIEVE
WHAT YOU'RE LED TO BELIEVE
SURGERIES ARE CLOSING
AS THE DYING TURN TO DEAD
A MASSIVE BURNING TRACK
THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAVE TREAD
DID YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT
THAT PIG FUCKER SAID?
A TEN YEAR DARK HOLE
AND NOW WE'RE IN DEBT

WELFARE WARFARE, WELFARE WARFARE
WELFARE WARFARE AIN'T GOING OUR WAY
WELFARE WARFARE I'M GOING INSANE
WELFARE WARFARE WHERE'S OUR PAY
WELFARE WARFARE AND HATE THE STATE

OUR NHS IS NEXT ON THE LIST
BY NEXT POLLING DAY IT MIGHT NOT EXIST
WHEN LIARS SPEAK WITH LIONS
NOTHING WILL EVER GET FIXED
THEIR SPREADSHEETS ARE DOWN
THE BOXES ARE TICKED

OUR MONARCHY'S SO SACRED
AND THE PEOPLE ARE FILLED WITH HATRED
IT ALL SEEMS SO DATED THIS SYSTEM THEY'VE CREATED
THE FAT CATS THEY INSTATED
AND LIVES THEY'VE COMPLICATED
I DETEST THIS NATION ‘CAUSE IT'S FUCKED OUR EDUCATIONS

OUR EXISTENCE IS THAT OF AN UNDERPAID SLAVE
DIGGING DEEPER AND DEEPER THEN DIGGING OUR OWN GRAVES
I'M NOT OK SO DON'T TELL ME TO BEHAVE
SHUT DOWN YOUR EMOTIONS AND TRY TO BE BRAVE
DON'T DROP ON YOUR KNEES AND BOW DOWN AND PRAY
TRAVELLING FURTHER AND FURTHER INTO MY OWN CAVE
WHERE RAVENS DON'T RAVE OF A TIME THAT ONCE SAVED
OUT WHERE MONKEY'S ARE AFRAID BUT THERE'S MONEY TO BE MADE
A FLASH CAR AND SMART SUIT IS ALL THAT YOU CRAVE
YOU TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELF AND TRY NOT TO COMPLAIN
THEN I JUST REALISED THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGED
Track Name: Cyclic System
POLITICALLY LEFT, POLITICALLY RIGHT
PICK A SIDE, GET A SEAT, ‘CAUSE THERE’S GONNA BE A FIGHT
VOTE FOR A PRODUCT
VOTE JUST TO KEEP YOUR RIGHTS

THE STRATEGIES INSULTING AND THEIR LIES ARE UNASHAMED
FORGET WE STILL HAVE FEELINGS
FORGET WE STILL HAVE BRAINS
VOTE FOR A PRODUCT
VOTE JUST TO KEEP IT THE SAME

THE PAPERS POINT THEIR FINGERS IN PREDICTABLE POSITIONS
AT ANYBODY SLACKING OFF AND AT ANYBODY DIFFERENT
VOTE FOR A PRODUCT
VOTE JUST TO MAKE YOUR AMENDS

SO VOTE FOR FOOLS IN A CYCLICAL PROCESS
OR SPOIL YOUR BALLOT AND CALL THAT PROGRESS
FRIGHTENED PEOPLE FAIL TO TAKE UP NOTICE
THIS SYSTEM WILL FAIL
THIS SYSTEM MUST FAIL

CORPORATE MEDIA LIES
YOUR HEAD IS FULL OF PARANOID SPIES
SO HATE WITH YOUR VOTE
AND KEEP ON HATING TILL YOU CHOKE

THE DAMAGE IS DONE NOW THERE'S NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN
STUCK IN A RUT WHILST WE COULD BE HAVING FUN
SO HATE WHO THEY SAY
KEEP ON HATING WHILE YOU PRAY

YOU’RE WRAPPED AROUND THEIR FINGER AS THEIR FINGER HITS THE TRIGGER
SQUEEZED IN TIGHT ALL THE PEOPLE FIGHT AND BICKER
SO HATE WHO YOU ARE
HATE ‘CAUSE YOUR KEPT IN THE DARK

SO VOTE FOR FOOLS IN CYCLICAL PROCESS
OR SPOIL YOUR BALLOT AND CALL THAT PROGRESS
FRIGHTENED PEOPLE FAIL TO TAKE UP NOTICE
THIS SYSTEM WILL FAIL
THIS SYSTEM MUST FAIL
Track Name: Dead Native
TRIBE LEADERS GATHER IN SILENCE
TO PLAN WHAT SHOULD BE DONE
WHILST MASSES GATHER IN VIOLENCE
THIS EARTH JUST NEEDS TO MOVE ON
YOU SEEM TO THINK YOU STAYED NATIVE
YOU’VE BECOME SO DEAD NAÏVE
WITH NOTHING TO STOP THE BLEEDING
OF MOTHER NATURE’S TREES
YOU CAN’T SEEM TO SEE WE’RE LIVING
IN A LAND OF HATE NOT DREAM
AND IT MIGHT TAKE A WHILE TO NOTICE
BUT WE WILL NEVER BE FREE

WITH STRONG DEPENDENCE ON THIS LAND
WE USED TO LIVE HAND IN HAND
NOW OUR DREAMS OF OUR WONDERLAND
AND STRONG GUNS THEY JUST COULDN’T WITHSTAND
NATIVE PLEAS WENT ON IGNORED
YOU MOVED THEM ON WITH BLOODY FORCE
THE LAW OF TERRA NULLIUS
NO RIGHT TO CLAIM SHORES THEY ARE NOT YOURS

WE’RE DEAD NATIVE
WE WILL NEVER BE FREE

THERE WILL BE NO FINAL REPRIEVE
THERE’S NOT GONNA BE A TIME TO GRIEVE
THE TIME IS NOW TO APPEASE
TO THIEVE FROM THE LAND IS SO NAÏVE
WHILST THE EARTH IS TURNED TO CONCRETE
RIGHT BENEATH OUR FEET, YEAH
AND THE OLD TRIBES ARE BECOMING
SO EXTINCT AND OBSOLETE

WE'RE DEAD NATIVE
WE WILL NEVER BE FREE
