Lyrics

1. BOMB THE BASTARD

Iraq bombed 'cause Clinton has fucked
Civilians died, to cover it up
Bombraid tactics and propaganda
Clinton's blowjob led to massacre

Bomb the bastard


2. JUDGED TOO SOON

People judge, McDonalds burnt,
But do they judge McDonalds crimes?

They judged too soon

Third world workers, being killed
While producing ''Mc surprise'' kit

They judged too soon

Ronald McDonalds' killing task
You can find it, behind his mask


3. WAGE WAR

Hey governement, do you give a fuck?
About the ones without a job
You say you create new jobs, but for who?
They surely ain't paid as good as you

Our governement promises to create new jobs
But what if they just ain't paid enough
To live a healthy and decent life
In their own wages, they have to put their knifes


4. TO SERVE... TO PROTECT

To serve, to protect is what the state says
You see them around, in uniforms they're dressed

To fight criminality, for better security
But still I'm afraid of police-brutality

Why are they hassling me?
Why are they picking on me?
I guess it is their job
To serve and to protect


5. HAND IN HAND

They raised their arms at our gig
Shouting sieg hail, they think it is hip
They got kicked out and started again
Then cops came, defending them

Now they've pushed us, pushed us too far

Our state says they won't give them a chance
But cops and fascists go hand in hand
When there's trouble, we're the bad
The fascists go free is what the cops said

Now they've pushed us, pushed us too far


6. SCARED

Your way of life does not interest me
You claim you're proud, but in fact you're weak
The pride you have is fucking false
It's your insecurity behind a mask

You're scared
Alone
You're scared
Of yourself


7. HOMES NOT DOMES

Nice ancient buildings left to rot
Bought to make place for concrete blocks

Squat abandonned buildings now
'Cause homelessness is still around

Capitalists don't give a fuck
They only wanna make another buck


8. FULL OF HATRED

The Flemish Block is back again
To play their fucking nazi-game
Full of hatred

Good at manipulation
To start a new fascist-regime
Full of hatred

A dead nazi, a tragedy?
But 10 millions other, a fantasy?
Full of hatred


9. WHO CARES

Marching soldiers in the streets
Is this the state you wanna see?
Beating those who do not fit
Beating those who do not fit

Who cares?
Do you?
Who cares?
Uhh?


10. EURO NOMOUS

The Euro-currency is coming near
I question why it's coming here
They wanna make Europe ''one''
But who will profit, when it's done?

United cash for the rich
Social security, what about this?

Promising a bright future
While homelessness still occurs
United Europe, but for who?
Will it be a glorious boom?


11. ONE SIDED VIEW

Put on your TV and what do you see
Pseudo-truth for you and me
One-sided news and reality-shows
Cops and army look like heroes

Don't be fooled
By the news
Their one-sided-views
System-tools


12. WRONG WAY

They're coming to gigs to beat the ones
Who smoke and drink and fucking eat meat
Is this the way to communicate
With the ones in information-need?

A vegan fascist does not make
A good fascist, oh no way
Wrong way, nothing is gonna change,
Animal rights, pushed further away


13. I THOUGHT

Sat on the bus and had some beer
Went to a gig, quite far from here
Police came and asked my name
''Not your business'' was my reply

Cops were bashing up, up my head

I thought this was a free country
But some seem more free than me
Equality and democracy?
Act to make it reality

Cops were bashing up, up my head


14. LIVING IN HELL

Living in hell - political refugees trying to escape
Living in hell - they're being hunted by the state

Hunted - just suppose it were you
Hunted - just what the fuck would you do

Living in hell - the risk of being put to death
Living in hell - you're not welcome, our stage says

Hunted - just suppose it were you
Hunted - just what the fuck would you do


15. COOL FOOLS

On gigs, they're cutting their fucking arms
To a looser-crew they wanna belong

Pain, pain, pain - for what gain?
Pain, pain, pain - you loose again

Self-mutilation, yeah, that's really tough
Just go ahead and fuck yourself up

Pain, pain, pain - for what gain?
Pain, pain, pain - you loose again

If attention is what you need
I just love to see a looser bleed


16. TELE-CONNING

Why do they shove it, all down our throats
''Tele-shopping'', needless things to be sold

People are buying, things they can't pay
And the result, in debts they will stay

Indoctrination, things to be bought
People they buy, without a thought
