Track Name: REALITIES OF WAR
War is a black hole to avoid
The realities of war are so disturbing
The declare it but they don't hear the cries of fear

War is a black hole to avoid

Mutilated corpses and charcoal flesh
Litter the battlefields
But their dead bodies are not to be found

War is a black hole to avoid
Track Name: THEY DECLARE IT
They have the right what fuckin' right?
To say I must fight in their fuckin' wars
They declare it!

Why should I fight in their fuckin' wars?
When they don't consult my views of war?
They declare it!

Why should I fight in their fuckin' wars?
Why should I do their killing and be killed?
They declare it!

It's nothing to them if I were dead or alive
All they want is death or glory
They declare it!

They! They! They declare it!
War! War! War!
Track Name: BUT AFTER THE GIG
Leather and sweat fills the atmosphere
I sense an enjoyment as I pogo too
The anarchist words being shouted out

Thats not real music
And I'm just shoutin' and screamin'
But thats the response to an anarchist meeting

But after the gig,
Its back to obeying their every say,
Back to be being those
Poor lambs led to the fuckin slaughter

You think that this is a turn of phrase
Realism is what we're preachin
Are you really so afraid?
Track Name: SOCIETY'S VICTIM
I'm just a victim of your wildest lies
Send in my photo with another name

I'm society's victim

Nobody has to get you to buy it now
That's your concern and I don't vote

I'm society's victim

I'm just the subject of discussion now
The one no-one admires

I'm society's victim

I'm not just sufferin' from paranoia
It's invented by you and them

I'm society's victim
