Track Name: It's Not About You
Stand up
Get down
To face
The sound

Give up?
Know why?
We live
You die

You say
We suck
Your lies
Your muck

We made
A crew
Your shit
We’re through

Chorus -
It's Not About You!
It's About US!

(repeat everything 2x)
Track Name: Bash Us
V1 –
No excuses
No more lies
No more bullshit between the lines

Fuck your time
Fuck your life
Fuck you when you call us “out of line”

V2 –
You lost your mind
Can’t see the light
You’ve fallen in line with a typical swine

Such a waste
Fuck this place
Think about that when we spit in your face

Chorus –
It’s just what we do
It’s just what we say
You have no right to judge us that way!

Think we suck?
Think we’re trash?
You’ll have to rethink your fascist bash!
Track Name: What Side Are You On?
So tell me,
what side are you on?
Oh, wait a minute…
Let me tell you a little story

V1 –
I’ll tell you a story of a man
Who went out in life to do what he can
Said it once, said it twice
Played his tricks and rolled the dice

V2 –
His lies go out with a taste of you
Fuck it all man what a shame
Said it once, said it twice
Played his tricks and rolled the dice

So………hey you! (1x)
What side are you on?
Apparently not (2x)

- Breakdown

What Side Are You On?
Apparently, NOT MINE!

-- Say it all behind those stained glass walls
Yet you think about it, but you wreck right through.
You kept it all in yourself.
Yet you, you think about it, but you lie to yourself.
-- Say you are a friend of mine,
You’ll play those tricks cause you think I'm blind
You cramp it all in your fucking self
So tell me, what side are you on?

“What Side Are You On?” (till ending)
