Track Name: Corp-core
CORP-CORE

FROM THE GRASS-ROOTS YOU'RE GETTING BIGGER
SELLING YOUR MUSIC TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER
NO SELF EXPRESSION, AND YOU'VE LOST ALL CONTROL
REDUCED TO A PRODUCT TO BE BOUGHT AND SOLD
THEY TELL YOU WHAT TO THINK THEY TELL YOU WHAT TO SAY
ARTISTIC FREEDOM IS NOW CAST AWAY
ALL YOUR EFFORTS WHERE IN VAIN
NOW ALL YOUR MUSIC SOUNDS THE SAME

CORP-CORE YOU SOLD YOUR SOUL
JUST A PRODUCT NO CONTROL
NOW YOUR MUSIC'S IN DECLINE
JUST A POINTLESS FASHION LINE
CORP-CORE YOU SOLD YOUR SOUL
JUST A PRODUCT NO CONTROL
NOW YOUR MUSIC'S IN DECLINE
JUST A POINTLESS FASHION LINE

ANOTHER PLASTIC PUNK IS ON THE TV
TURNING INTO ANOTHER POINTLESS CELEBRITY
YEH' YOU TOOK THE CORPORATE MUSIC ROUTE
MAKING THE MUSIC FOR THE MEN IN SUITS
FREE TO DO EXACTLY WHAT YOUR TOLD
JUST A PRODUCT WITHOUT A SOUL
ALL YOUR EFFORTS WHERE IN VAIN
NOW ALL YOUR MUSIC SOUNDS THE SAME

CORP-CORE SOLD YOUR SOUL
JUST A PRODUCT NO CONTROL
NOW YOUR MUSIC'S IN DECLINE
JUST A POINTLESS FASHION LINE
CORP-CORE SOLD YOUR SOUL
JUST A PRODUCT NO CONTROL
NOW YOUR MUSIC'S IN DECLINE
JUST A POINTLESS FASHION LINE
Track Name: Down and out
DOWN AND OUT

I'M THE MAN THAT YOU WALK PAST AND TRY NOT TO SEE
LOW SELF ESTEEM AND NO DIGNITY
LOSING MYSELF IN THE BOTTOM OF A CAN
OF CHEAP BOOZE, I USED TO BE A MAN
BUT NOW I FEEL LOWER THAN AN ANIMAL
MY CONTACT WITH HUMANITY IS MINIMAL
GOT A NAME BUT IT RARELY GETS USED
LOST COUNT OF THE TIME I'VE BEEN VERBALLY ABUSED

BY THUGS WHO VICTIMIZE THE WEAK
GOT A VOICE BUT I RARELY SPEAK
LIVE IN A FLAT THAT LOOKS LIKE A TIP
THE RENTS OVERDUE BUT I COULDN'T GIVE A SHIT

SCRAPE TOGETHER SOME CHANGE SO I CAN BUY
ANOTHER BOTTLE OF BOOZE TO NUMB MY MIND
KNOW MY LIFE'S SHIT BUT WHY SHOULD I CARE
STARRING AT THE WORLD THROUGH AN ALCOHOLIC BLUR


'DOWN N OUT STINKING OF PISS
LYING IN THE GUTTER AND I'M COVERED IN SICK
HOW BAD WAS MY LIFE TO END UP LIKE THIS
GIVE ME THE RAZOR LET ME SLIT MY WRISTS
MY NAME'S AT THE TOP OF MY OWN SHIT LIST
IF I DIE TODAY I WONT BE MISSED
DOWN AND OUT STINKING OF PISS'

HIT THE BOTTLE SO MUCH TO TRY AND FORGET
THE LIFE I ONCE HAD, ALL THE REGRETS
OF PAST MISTAKES THAT I MADE
WHEN I'M SOBER I REMINISCE ABOUT THE BETTER DAYS
USED TO HAVE MONEY, USED TO HAVE A WIFE
RAN MY OWN FIRM USED TO HAVE A LIFE
THEN THE RECESSION DROPPED ME IN THE SHIT
MY FIRM WENT INTO RECEIVERSHIP

SOLD MY HOME TO CLEAR MY DEBTS
THE STRESS GOT TOO MUCH SO MY WIFE LEFT
LOST IT ALL I FEEL SUCH A FOOL
JUST A VICTIM OF TORY RULE

LOST THE STRENGTH TO GET BACK ON MY FEET
DRINK WASHES AWAY THE BITTER TASTE OF DEFEAT
WHEN YOUR DISGUSTED BY THE SIGHT OF ME
JUST REMEMBER THE MAN THAT I ONCE USED TO BE

'DOWN N OUT STINKING OF PISS
LYING IN THE GUTTER AND I'M COVERED IN SICK
HOW BAD WAS MY LIFE TO END UP LIKE THIS
GIVE ME THE RAZOR LET ME SLIT MY WRISTS
MY NAME'S AT THE TOP OF MY OWN SHIT LIST
IF I DIE TODAY I WONT BE MISSED
DOWN AND OUT STINKING OF PISS'
Track Name: False nationalism
FALSE NATIONALISM

UNION JACKS ON COUNCIL FLATS
HUNG UP BY UNEDUCATED PRATS
TALKING ABOUT PRIDE AND BEING PATRIOTIC
ACTING LIKE A CLONE, SOCIALLY ROBOTIC
FLY YOUR FLAG, CRACK A VACANT SMILE
EMPTY SLOGANEERING IS YOUR STYLE
ACTING THE BIG SELF RIGHTEOUS HYPOCRITE
YOUR HEART IS PURE, YOUR MINDS FULL OF SHIT

FALSE NATIONALISM I NEVER UNDERSTOOD
THE UNION JACK IS DRENCHED IN BLOOD
SYMBOL OF OPPRESSION AND SLAVERY
FLY YOUR FLAG OF HYPOCRISY

HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF SOMETHING, IN WHICH YOU GOT NO CHOICE?
HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF A COUNTRY, THAT DOESN'T WANT TO HEAR IT'S PEOPLES VOICE?
HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF A NATION, SENDING SOLDIERS OFF TO DIE?
HOW CAN YOU PROUD OF A KINGDOM, THAT WENT TO WAR FOR A LIE?

BRAINWASHED BY THE NEWS AND THE TV
ANAESTHETIZED BY ALL THAT YOU SEE
THE MEDIA IS CONTROLLED BY THE GOVERNMENT
NO MORE UGLY DISCONTENT
UNHOOK YOUR MIND FROM THE REAL SITUATION
FALL IN LINE WITH THE ZOMBIE POPULATION
TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO START A FIRE
BURN THIS FLAG OF THE CRIMINAL EMPIRE

FALSE NATIONALISM I NEVER UNDERSTOOD
THE UNION JACK IS DRENCHED IN BLOOD
SYMBOL OF OPPRESSION AND SLAVERY
FLY YOUR FLAG OF HYPOCRISY

HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF SOMETHING, IN WHICH YOU GOT NO CHOICE?
HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF A COUNTRY, THAT DOESN'T WANT TO HEAR IT'S PEOPLES VOICE?
HOW CAN YOU BE PROUD OF A NATION, SENDING SOLDIERS OFF TO DIE?
HOW CAN YOU PROUD OF A KINGDOM, THAT WENT TO WAR FOR A LIE?
Track Name: Chain of debt
CHAIN OF DEBT

WORKING FOR A SYSTEM TO FUCK THE POOR
YOU'RE JUST A TRAITOR TO THE WORKING CLASS CAUSE
DID YOU FORGET WHERE YOU CAME FROM
TREATING PEOPLE IN DEBT LIKE LOW LIFE SCUM

'THERE'S DEBT COLLECTORS AT MY DOOR
THESE VAMPIRES THAT KEEP ME POOR
ALL WASHED UP I'M A NERVOUS WRECK
A CHAIN OF DEBT AROUND MY NECK'
'THERE'S DEBT COLLECTORS AT MY DOOR
THESE VAMPIRES THAT KEEP ME POOR
ALL WASHED UP I'M A NERVOUS WRECK
A CHAIN OF DEBT AROUND MY NECK'

THERE'S NO FUCKIN HOPE FOR THE WORKING CLASS MAN
YOU CAN WORK HARD BUT THEY JUST DON'T GIVE A DAMN
SO DOWNTRODDEN INSIDE MY HEAD
SLAVE TO A LIFE STYLE ALREADY DEAD

'THERE'S DEBT COLLECTORS AT MY DOOR
THESE VAMPIRES THAT KEEP ME POOR
ALL WASHED UP I'M A NERVOUS WRECK
A CHAIN OF DEBT AROUND MY NECK'
'THERE'S DEBT COLLECTORS AT MY DOOR
THESE VAMPIRES THAT KEEP ME POOR
ALL WASHED UP I'M A NERVOUS WRECK
A CHAIN OF DEBT AROUND MY NECK'

A CHAIN OF DEBT WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK
PULLING TIGHTER CHOKING ME TO DEATH
COLLECTION AGENCY WONT LEAVE ME ALONE
SCARED TO ANSWER THE FUCKIN PHONE
I'VE GOT DEBTS THAT I CANT AFFORD
SO NOW THEY WANT ME IN COURT
CANT KEEP UP MY MINIMUM PAYMENT
NEED TO MAKE A NEW ARRANGEMENT
Track Name: Skull and bones
SKULL AND BONES

HAND PICKED SCUM CONTROL THE EARTH
TO RAPE THE LAND FOR ALL THEIR WORTH
WE GET CONDITIONED FOR STATE SLAVERY
UNDER THE SHROUD OF DEMOCRACY
TO SERVE A SOCIETY BASED ON GREED
ALLOWED TO TAKE MORE THAN THEY NEED
NATIONS STARVE TO FUEL THEIR GREED
FEATHER THEIR NEST AND WATCH THEM BLEED

FROM THE BLUE-BLOODLINE TO RULE THE STATE
INHERITED POWER THAT KEEPS YOU GREAT
SECRET SOCIETY OF POWERFUL MEN
ENGINEERING WHAT'S RIGHT FOR THEM

BROTHERHOOD OF DEATH THE SINISTER CLAN
TEACHING MEMBERS TO EXPLOIT MAN
THE ILLUMINATI'S YOUTH TRAINING SCHEME
VILE NEPOTISM PUSHED TO THE EXTREME
BUSH ONE AND BUSH TWO YES INDEED
BOTH BELONG TO THIS CULT OF GREED
TAKE A CRASH COURSE IN WORLD DOMINATION
FUTURE PARASITES OF CIVILIZATION

FROM THE BLUE-BLOODLINE TO RULE THE STATE
INHERITED POWER THAT KEEPS YOU GREAT
SECRET SOCIETY OF POWERFUL MEN
ENGINEERING WHAT'S RIGHT FOR THEM

THE SECRET SOCIETY OF SKULL AND BONES
THE BROTHERHOOD OF DEATH
PRIVILEGED OFFSPRING OF THE UPPER ECHELON
TAKE THEIR FORMATIVE STEPS

HAND PICKED SCUM CONTROL THE EARTH
TO RAPE THE LAND FOR ALL THAT THEIR WORTH
WE GET CONDITIONED FOR STATE SLAVERY
UNDER THE SHROUD OF DEMOCRACY
Track Name: Scarred Society
SCARRED SOCIETY

ALL THE MISERY OF MODERN TIMES
HANGS SO HEAVY UPON MY MIND
WISH I COULD WALK AROUND SOCIALLY BLIND
THEN SOME PEACE I COULD FIND
BUT I WITNESS THE SUFFERING OF MAN
SOMETHING THAT OTHERS JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND
FAMINE – WAR - DEATH- ADDICTION
THE PAIN OF THE WORLD THAT KEEPS INFLICTING

TIME WONT HEAL A SCARRED SOCIETY (X4)

MOST PROBLEMS IN THIS WORLD ARE CAUSED BY LACK OF WEALTH
FAMINE, WAR DOWN TO QUALITY OF HEALTH
LACK OF AMBITION AMONGST MUCH OF THE YOUNG
TRAPPED IN ADDICTION WHERE THEY FEEL THEY BELONG
HEALTH CARE DENIED TO THE TERMINALLY ILL
UNLESS OF COURSE THEY CAN FOOT THE BILL
CHILDHOOD POVERTY IN THIS RICH NATION
MORE EVIDENCE OF A FAILED CIVILIZATION

TIME WONT HEAL A SCARRED SOCIETY (X4)
Track Name: Prison factory
PRISON FACTORY

CORPORATE GIFT TO THE THIRD WORLD NATION
COME TO DELIVER YOUR SALVATION
DON'T STARVE TO DEATH JUST GET ON BOARD
FAR TO BIG TO GET IGNORED

'SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE
SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE'

THEY WILL COME KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR
IT'S BETTER THAN WHAT YOU HAD BEFORE
SWEEP YOUR CULTURE OUT THE WAY
NOW THEY OWN YOU FOR A DOLLAR A DAY

'SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE
SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE'

WORKING ALL DAY JUST TO KEEP THE PEACE
FOUR HOURS SLEEP IS YOUR ONLY RELEASE
JUST BOW DOWN AND OBEY THEIR ORDERS
BECOME A SLAVE TO THIS NEW WORLD ORDER

'SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE
SET UP A BIG BAD CORPORATE PRISON FACTORY
DON'T YOU KNOW WORK WILL SET YOU FREE'

PRISON FACTORY

MODERN DAY SLAVERY BECOMES LEGALISED
BUT WELL HIDDEN FROM YOUR CIVILIZED EYES
MORE PROFITABLE TO SHIP THE WORK OVERSEAS
TO EXPLOIT THIRD WORLD SWEAT-SHOP EMPLOYEES
WORKERS RIGHTS AND UNIONS ARE OBSOLETE
THEY EARN JUST ENOUGH SO THEY CAN BARELY AFFORD TO EAT
CHILDREN WORKING IN CONDITIONS HAZARDOUS TO HEALTH
WHILE THE FACTORY OWNER AMASSES VAST AMOUNTS OF WEALTH

PRISON FACTORY

WHILE YOUR KIDS GO TO SCHOOL FOR AN EDUCATION
OTHERS WORK IN THE PRISON FACTORY POPULATION
LIKE VICTORIAN WORK HOUSES BUT IN MODERN TIMES
NO ONE WILL EVER GET PUNISHED FOR THESE CRIMES
YOU MIGHT THINK ABOUT AND ASK YOURSELF WHY
BUT RICH CORPORATIONS MADE IT LEGALISED
MONEY BUYS THE LAW TO EXPLOIT THE POOR
THEY ALREADY OWN THE WORLD BUT THEY STILL WANT MORE!
Track Name: System abuse
SYSTEM ABUSE

SYSTEM ABUSE A RICH MAN'S CRIME
ANOTHER SIGN OF OUR TIME
FLEECE THE SYSTEM FOR THEIR GAIN
WE ARE THE ONES THAT THEY BLAME
WAGES CUT TO INFLATE
ALL THE WEALTH OF THE CAPITALIST STATE
WE GET ROBBED WITHOUT FAIL
LEGALIZED FRAUD ON A MASSIVE SCALE

RETRIBUTION SABOTAGE MUST BEGIN
BECOME THE ENEMY WITHIN
MY LIFE ISOLATED ALONE
FROM THE FREEZER TO THE MICROWAVE- A WORKING CLASS DRONE

THEY SET THE SYSTEM THAT THEY ABUSE
THE CARDS ARE STACKED TO MAKE US LOSE
THEY SET THE SYSTEM THAT THEY ABUSE
THE CARDS ARE STACKED TO MAKE US LOSE

MAKE US FEAR FOR OUR JOBS
AND OUR PENSIONS THAT GET ROBBED
MORTGAGE RATES THAT INFLATE
REPOSSESSION AT A RAPID RATE
WHAT YOU EARN THEY WANT TO TAKE
WITHOUT THOUGHT FOR WHAT'S AT STAKE
LOSE YOUR JOB LOSE YOUR HOME
BLEED YOU DRY THEN LEAVE YOU ALONE

RETRIBUTION SABOTAGE MUST BEGIN
BECOME THE ENEMY WITHIN
MY LIFE ISOLATED ALONE
FROM THE FREEZER TO THE MICROWAVE- A WORKING CLASS DRONE

THEY SET THE SYSTEM THAT THEY ABUSE
THE CARDS ARE STACKED TO MAKE US LOSE
THEY SET THE SYSTEM THAT THEY ABUSE
THE CARDS ARE STACKED TO MAKE US LOSE
Track Name: Trigger finger
TRIGGER FINGER

THERE'S EXCITEMENT DOWN AT THE STATION
GLOVES ARE OFF TIME TO FEEL THE THRILL
THE RULES HAVE CHANGED FOR THE SITUATION
TODAY THEY'VE GOT A LICENSE TO KILL

NO TIME TO THINK / NO TIME TO WAIT
PART OF THE TEAM NO TIME TO LINGER
DRAW THE WEAPON FIRE IN HASTE
WITH AN ITCHY TRIGGER FINGER!

NEVER THOUGHT THAT THE DAY WOULD COME
BRITISH POLICE WOULD CARRY GUNS
NOW IT SEEMS THAT THE DAY IS NEAR
THAT WE ALL MUST LIVE IN FEAR

NOW THE TARGET IS IN SIGHT
THE HATRED BUILDS THEY'RE SEEING RED
TAKING AIM GOTTA DO IT RIGHT
GONNA SHOOT SOME POOR FUCKER DEAD

NO TIME TO THINK / NO TIME TO WAIT
PART OF THE TEAM NO TIME TO LINGER
DRAW THE WEAPON FIRE IN HASTE
WITH AN ITCHY TRIGGER FINGER!

NEVER THOUGHT THAT THE DAY WOULD COME
BRITISH POLICE WOULD CARRY GUNS
NOW IT SEEMS THAT THE DAY IS NEAR
THAT WE ALL MUST LIVE IN FEAR
Track Name: Social leper
A song about how having no hope and no place in society
Track Name: Cross the line
CROSS THE LINE

HAD A SHOT OF FAME AND SUCCESS
WE PATTED YOU ON THE BACK, WISHED YOU THE BEST
OFFERED OUR RESPECT AND SUPPORT
IT WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING, THAT'S WHAT WE THOUGHT
IT DISGUSTS ME HOW SUCCESS CHANGED YOU
SURPRISED HOW QUICKLY YOUR EGO GREW
DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE PEOPLE FROM YOUR PAST
REMEMBER THE FAME MIGHT NOT LAST

'SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
BEWARE SUCCESS MIGHT NOT LAST
SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
ONCE YOU CROSS THE LINE YOU CAN'T COME BACK

SO YOU FABRICATED A STREET LIFE HISTORY
TO GIVE YOURSELF SOME CREDIBILITY
GANGS, GUNS, DRUGS AND POVERTY
LYING LIKE THAT HAVE YOU GOT NO DIGNITY
GOT NO TIME TO STOP AND CHAT
MIX WITH THE UPPER-CLASS ACTING THE TWAT
NOTHING TO THEM BUT THEIR PET PLEB
AS THEY NOD AND PAT YOU ON THE HEAD

'SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
BEWARE SUCCESS MIGHT NOT LAST
SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
ONCE YOU CROSS THE LINE YOU CAN'T COME BACK

RUBBING COCKS WITH THE MEDIA TYPES
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SYCOPHANTIC ARSE WIPES
SOLD YOUR SOUL FOR A SLICE OF FAME
GOT NO RESPECT GOT NO SHAME
TOOK A CULTURE BORN FROM THE STREETS
SOLD IT ON TO THE UPPER CLASS ELITE
SWALLOWED THE FAME, SHIT OUT YOUR PRIDE
AS YOUR INTEGRITY SLOWLY DIED

SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS
SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
CROSS THE LINE
YOU CAN'T COME BACK
Track Name: Age of deception
AGE OF DECEPTION

STATE GANGSTERS ON A GLOBAL STAGE
SET A NEW AGENDA FOR A BRAND NEW AGE
A SOCIETY CONSUMED AND EASILY LEAD
CONSUMER SLAVES THE NEW LIVING DEAD

THE MORE YOU HEAR THE LESS YOU LEARN
AS THE WHEELS OF PROPAGANDA TURN
YOU FIGHT THIS ADDICTION BUT NEVER WIN
IT'S STATE CONTROL FROM WITHIN
THE MORE YOU HEAR THE LESS YOU LEARN
AS THE WHEELS OF PROPAGANDA TURN
YOU FIGHT THIS ADDICTION BUT NEVER WIN
IT'S STATE CONTROL FROM WITHIN

THE MEDIA CONTROLS WHAT YOU THINK AND SAY
TO SLOWLY STRIP YOUR SOUL AWAY
ALL THOUGHT AND OPINION BECOME OBSOLETE
THIS IS THE WISDOM OF DEFEAT

THE MORE YOU HEAR THE LESS YOU LEARN
AS THE WHEELS OF PROPAGANDA TURN
YOU FIGHT THIS ADDICTION BUT NEVER WIN
IT'S STATE CONTROL FROM WITHIN
THE MORE YOU HEAR THE LESS YOU LEARN
AS THE WHEELS OF PROPAGANDA TURN
YOU FIGHT THIS ADDICTION BUT NEVER WIN
IT'S STATE CONTROL FROM WITHIN

I NEED THOSE TRAINERS I NEED THAT PHONE
NEED A BIG TELEVISION IN MY HOME
THIS CYCLE ENDLESSLY REPEATS
WITHOUT IT WE ALL FEEL INCOMPLETE
PREYING ON THE DELUDED MINDS
IT'S THE DUMBING DOWN OF MANKIND
TOLD TO ASPIRE TO A LIFE OF PERFECTION
CAUGHT UP IN THE AGE OF DECEPTION
