1. We're Only Gonna Die     [info]

early man walked away as modern man took control
their minds weren't all the same, to conquer was his big goal
so he built his great empire and slaughtered his own kind
then he died a confused man, killed himself with his own mind
go!

we're only gonna die from our own arrogance


2. Latch Key Kids     [info]

in this world today there ain't nobody to thank
just blame it on the kids and toss 'em into the tank
and if they yell for justice we'll hide them from the light
so that when they learn the truth they won't be scared of the night
1, 2, 3, 4

put the key in the hole when you get home from school
I'll be home by 8:30, your father will too
if you cause any trouble then I don't want to see
'cause you'll go straight to bed and you won't have no TV


3. Part III     [info]

the final page is written in the books of history
as man unleashed his deadly bombs and sent troops overseas
to fight a war which can't be won and kills the human race
a show of greed and ignorance, man's quest for dominance

they say when a mistake is made, a lesson has been learned
but this time, there's a second chance, the hate engulfs the world
a million lives are lost each day, a city slowly burns
a mother holds her dying child, but no one is concerned!


4. Faith In God

it's all right to have faith in God
but when you bend to their rules and their fucking lies
that's when I start to have pity on you

you're living on a mound of dirt
but you can't explain your reason for existence
so you blame it on God
so much hatred in this world and you can't decide
who's pulling the strings
so you figure it's God
your whole life foreshadows death
and you finally realize you don't want to die alone
so you'll always have God

it's all right to have faith in God
but when you bend to their rules and their fucking lies
that's when I start to have pity on you

there's people in the world today
who say they're Jewish, Christian and such
they're all ignorant fools
they'll tell you you can't have your own way
unless you pay money and dedicate your life
or you'll be damned in hell
don't be feeble like all of them
you have your own brain full of thoughts and choices
so use it don't let them use you


5. Fuck Armageddon... This Is Hell     [info]

there's people out there that say I'm no good
'cause I don't believe the things that I should
and when the final conflict comes, I'll be so sorry I did wrong
and hope and pray that our Lord God will think I'm good

countries manufacture bombs and guns
to kill your brother for something that he hasn't even done
smog is ruining my lungs, but they aren't sorry they've done wrong
they hide behind their lies that they're helping everyone

in the end the good will go to heaven up above
the bad will perish in the depths of hell

how can hell be any worse
when life alone is such a curse?
fuck Armageddon, this is hell

we're living in the denoument of the battle's gripping awe
so what's the use of being good to satisfy them all?

how could hell be any worse?
life alone is such a curse!
fuck Armageddon, this is hell


6. Pity

I show pity on the human race
on the ignorant plenty who devote their lives
to an icon that they've never known
I show pity on eons past
when early man started the first civilization
and human aggression was born

I show pity on the future to come
when the government system will be omnipotent
and we'll be worse off... than we are now!

pity, pity, on the billions of ignorant people
pity, pity, on the masses of aggression
pity, pity, on the future centuries to come
on the billions of ignorant people
on the future centuries to come
on the masses of aggression

it's all a matter of looking at the past
it's all a question, are we gonna last?
if we endure the aggression that's inside all of us
we'll wipe out our own species and thus... the world!

pity!
pity on...
on the masses of aggression
on the billions of ignorant people
on the future centuries to come
on the masses of ignorant people
on the future centuries to come


7. In The Night

in the city, the day is too hot
and you're hoping for relief, 'cuz your head is filled with pain
but you get no relief, 'cuz the night is the same...

in the night, in the night you see through jaded eyes
in the night, in the night you feel barely alive

you live your life in darkness, you've got pennies on your eyes
but you say that it's all right, 'cuz you've never lived a lie
as you crawl back to your womblike existence in the night

you can't see no light, but you hear those heavy footsteps
and the little man inside twists your tormented mind
your mind is filled with shadows, your palms are wet with sweat
limbs are bound and tangled in a fatal net
there are two things you can do
one is turn and fight
the other's run headlong into the night

in the night, in the night you see through jaded eyes
in the night, in the night you feel barely alive
you can't see no light, but you hear those heavy footsteps
and the breathing at your side, is it yours, or is it
good bye!


8. Damned To Be Free

death and the shadow that it casts on life scares me little or none
people tell me of a divine right and the happy chosen one
I'm a freak 'cause my morals clash with others in the world
I go home while they work hard, then they same I'm wrong

there's only one place to be, while living with tragedy
if their sins affected me, I gotta be damned to be free

freedom is responsibility, pay more than it's worth
instincts tells us not to die, hazy myth since birth
learn their rules, play their game, deceive yourself in haste
turn your own brain into dust; it's not theirs to waste

there's only one place to be, while living with tragedy
extract the nectar, burn the tree, I gotta be damned to be free

thinking... this world it ain't so bad
dying... it's just another fad
working... 8 hours, that's not for me
dying... it's just your destiny


9. White Trash (2nd Generation)     [info]

wasted children, fixed blank eyes, blood and sweat, we socialize
broken homes from which they come, beer-stained dad, compliant Mom
fear and love, much despised, replaced by comfortable lies
teenage classic, more cliche, one step further on the edge of decay

white trash, 2nd generation, white trash, 2nd generation
white trash, 2nd generation, don your crown and cleanse the nation

are you ready to fight for your morality? Right wing allies, white supremacy
pretty fascist on the tube draped in red and white and blue

white trash, 2nd generation, stupid foibles, indignation
offspring of suburban fright, pearl-white creatures of the night
white trash, 2nd generation, white trash, 2nd generation
white trash, 2nd generation, don your crown and cleanse the nation

stiff blue collar, coat and tie, brand new breeds side by side
Christian ethic, right extremes, shoved down our throat as the American Dream


10. American Dream

I hate my family, hate my school, speed limits and the golden rule
hate people who aren't what they seem, more than anything else, American Dream
American Dream's gonna swallow you whole, it's bursting at the seam
it'll sweep you away, so enjoy it today, tomorrow you'll be old thus useless

American Dream... American Dream....
American Dream, that's ok, 'cause no one dare give you away

I hate my job, I hate your God, I hate hypocrites and common slobs
hate people who aren't what they seem, more than anything else, American Dream
promise me today I'll have a Chevrolet, with whitewalls on the side
one boy, one girl, comfortable lies

the American Dream... American Dream...
American Dream, that's ok, 'cause no one dare give you away
American Dream!
(bleah!)


11. Eat Your Dog

weak and sick, dying in the sand, no such thing as a promised land
don't lose faith in a better life--reincarnation, poor excuse
you're dying you assholes, your religion can't help you now
dying and starving in the fields you used to plow
rotting bones in your barren fields
Worshipped creature's supposed to heal
he won't save you and he won't save me
See what you want to see
Hindu religion in the mind of a working Joe
starving and dying in the fields you used to know
you're tied and bound to a God's useless advice
bloated stomachs from aching diseases hold back the fight
in the end you'll return once more to die again
go on 'til you can't no more in non-eternal sin


12. Voice Of God Is Government

neighbors, no one loves you like he loves you
and no one cares like he cares
neighbors, let us join today in the holy love of God and money
because neighbors, no one loves you like He loves you
and what better way to show your love than to dig deep into your pockets
dig real deep, until it hurts. Alleviate your guilt
free yourself once again, because he gave to you, brothers and sisters
please give a 10, 25, or 50 dollar tax-deductible donation
and I assure you your modest pledge will be used to censor TV and radio
ban questionable books, and contribute to many other Godly services
no longer will young Christian Americans hedonistically indulge
in masochistic submission to rhythmic music, for with your monetary support
there is no end to what we can achieve in this country

the voice of God is government. The voice of God is government
the voice of God is government. In God we trust, sinners repent!
1,2,3,4

can't you see what we believe in, all our thoughts, all our reasons
pursuit of life and liberty and happiness we cannot see?
speak of truth with a mighty voice, but politics are your real choice
hire men to change the law, protect and serve with one small flaw

if we shun God and Jesus Christ, religious love is sacrifice
love for God is shown in cash, the love they send is mailbox trash
with every pamphlet we receive, more money asked for Godly needs
build a million dollar church, with money spent on God's research

on late night TV, God can heal, a certain force you cannot feel
love for money in God's name, religion's now a TV game!
build a million dollar church, with money spent on God's research
build a million dollar church, with money spent on God's research

voice of God is government. The voice of God is government
voice of God is government. In God we trust, sinners repent!
yeah!


13. Oligarchy

presidential election every four years
but neither man we can see or hear
urgent cries for society
but he can't see the blood on me

do you see?
do you see too much for me?
try that with our oligarchy
try that with our oligarchy
oligarchy, oligarchy


14. Doing Time

see the fight, old men crying, deny their ruin
watch them try. the cynic laughs at the optimist's closed eyes
darkness falls, curtain calls, the cynic's beer soon overflows
other watches, has a drink, and from the same cup
they drink
I'm doin' time, how long I don't know

William had 26, blew his brains out, now look at him
John had only one, watch the mother mourn her only son

I'm doin' time, how long I don't know
I'll kiss goodbye my brain and body
and go to sleep for generations
and go to sleep for generations

salvation
cease concentration
you'll only lose the fight
don't tell me what's wrong or right!
you're losing sight
you're just gonna die anyway!


15. Bad Religion

see my body, it's nothing to get hung about
I'm nobody except genetic runaround
spiritual era's gone, it ain't comin' back
bad religion, a cabal, that is all that's left

hey Mr. Mind, stop wasting my time
with your factory precision
factory precision is your

bad religion, too good to take
indecision, it's not too late
bad religion, bad religion
ay!

don't you know the place you live's a piece of shit?
don't you know blind faith in life will conquer it?
don't you know responsibility is ours?
I don't care a think about eternal fires

listen this time, it's more than a rhyme
it's your indecision (it's conjured up in lies - w wersji z "Back to the Known")

your indecision is your

bad religion, too good to take
indecision, it's not too late
bad religion, too good to take
indecision, it's not too late
bad religion, bad religion
bad religion


16. Politics

Economy, techonology, does it really work?
The guy running the government (is just) another jerk
Try to teach some values and they all erode away
You're lucky if they listen to a single word you say

What is right and what is wrong? The government decides
You don't have to like the laws as long as you abide
We're all being oppressed by (the) upper, middle class
The government you vote for is the one that you possess

I'm so tired and now I'm through. I'm through and so are you
Oppressive fear from the president. (It's) us, not the government
We control the masses of the whole entire race
Soon our streets will all be filled without a happy face

(slowa w nawiasach to tekst, ktory Graffin napisal do tej piosenki, jednak przy spiewaniu go pomija)


17. Sensory Overload

they're all just suicides, in a social way
I'll never need that dormant time, I'll tell you why
'cause I think about it all the time
I think about?
I am?
sensory? you
I don't know why, trust me
it's bleeding me

I don't know why, God, it's social suicide
sensory overload, what a hell of a time
gotta sensory overload, gotta free your little mind
free your little mi-i-mind. oh!

go!
'cause I think about?
I think about?
think about playing these games for real
I wanna write down all the things I feel
don't wanna hide from the things I hear
I don't know why, trust me
oh God it's bleeding me

I don't know, God, it's social suicide
sensory overload, what a hell of a time
gotta sensory overload, gotta free your mind
free your little mi-i-mind, your little....


18. Slaves

don't try to say that I threaten your freedom
we've done without for 20 years, so think if we really need 'em

we're all just slaves for the troop commanders
we're all slaves

we can blow up things better than in any country except this one
waiting for it too then you realize it ain't too much fun
we're in a country, Democracy, supposed to be the best on the globe
living? for the high class clones


19. Drastic Actions

heard a word, suicide
not from one, but from thousands that tried
the lawyer's wife and the teenage brat
one thing in common, they all wanted out

and it's plain to see
it goes for you and it goes for me
and all the screwed up little girls and boys
all thrown in without a choice

but I heard him say
"I want out
no complaints and no doubts
just a chance to go on"

I heard a word, suicide
and not from one, but from thousands that died
want some attention and a little less regret
a teenage fluff, little threat

and there are those, there are those who think
that drastic actions will make them unique
it's really all the same
that no one's happy and nobody's to blame

and the moral to this story is old
it's quite taboo, seldom told
the seed is reaped before it's sown
a bad choice was never resolved


20. World War III

U.S. government blew its plan
Too much money down the can
Look and listen to what the president says
The first lady is a fuckin' lez.
They think they know it all
American, Russia, China are about to fall
Lethargy will overrule
U.S. government's wading pool

World War III

"Forget it!" came from the president's door
"I'll make us have another war
It don't matter what the people think
We have to save our precious brink
Here I go, I'll push the (first) bomb
Yeah, it's headed straight for Guam
All the rest will release soon
Right into your living room"


21. Yesterday

run, but don't be scared to look behind
stop, don't wait too long, make up your mind
the end is almost here
the sky, the air, so nice and clear
the sound of dirt decay
and the ringing in the air is the screen debris of yesterday

there, now that you know it's not so bad
see, the good things soon flow proximad
so few try to enhance
we don't deserve another chance
just laugh along the way
and kiss your ass goodbye with a shadowed dream of yesterday

yesterday, the good old days
yesterday, the way we used to play
yesterday, it just got worse and worse
yesterday, the future's been rehearsed

run, but don't be scared to look behind
stop, don't wait too long, make up your mind
the end is almost here
the sky, the air, so nice and clear
the sound of your decay
and the ringing in the air is the sweet debris of yesterday


22. Frogger     [info]

(nice going, spazz)

I'm tired of this city, all this toil and strife
trying to cross the boulevard, playing Frogger with my life
Frogger with my life


23. Bad Religion


24. Along The Way

I refuse to abuse what is kind to the Muse
but it's there and it's happening to me along the way
as we go through the snow, we cannot forget our foes
but the dinner's always waiting at the table 'long the way, yeah

what you see, not for me, isn't what you planned to be
but you'll have what you wanted in the end along the way
and we'll try as we cry and our brothers pass us by
to be strong through the ages of our tears along the way, yeah

now we grow as we show that the morals we must know
will be shapen and mistaken by the falls along the way
but forget, don't regret, to find love and happiness
unless you're willing to be strong when they are gone along the way
like Tommy, you are free, and you will not follow me
until we see each other once more on the path along the way


25. New Leaf

when everybody dies around you, from someone else's gun
it really makes you stop and think about the years to come
something good had to happen to the human race
we all had better stop hoping and set our heads on straight

you've gotta turn over a new leaf
'cause that old one's turning on you
we've gotta turn over a new leaf
if the future's only hoped for, we are doomed

today is over, it's already shot, so we can think about ourselves
they keep on working on our nature, they're saying that can only help
start throwing out your pockets, keep what you really only need
save life and Earth and water, there can't be any other need

you've gotta turn over a new leaf
'cause that old one's turning on you
you've gotta turn over a new leaf
if the future's only hoped for, we are doomed

you've gotta turn over a new leaf
'cause that old one's turning on you
we've gotta turn over a new leaf
and let your love come on through
you've gotta turn over a new leaf
'cause that old one's turning on you
we've gotta turn over a new leaf
a new, a new, a new


26. Bad Religion


27. Slaves
