Turncoat
! KILLER! LIAR! THEIF!
criminal with protection of the law!
state lies dressed up as evening news
(we're tired of lies we want the truth!)
broadcast by corpses courting you
(we're tired of lies we want the truth!)
most people they will never know
(we're tired of lies we want the truth!)
with you or against you?
then i am against you because you're a...
TURNCOAT! KILLER! LIAR! THEIF!
criminal with protection of the law!
TURNCOAT! KILLER! LIAR! THEIF!
criminal with protection of the law!
in your corner
makes me wanna
ooohhh!
douse myself in gasoline
civil servants fall in line for you
too brainwashed to see the truth
you use anyone you can
whoaaaaa!
TURNCOAT! KILLER! LIAR! THEIF!
criminal with protection of the law!
TURNCOAT! KILLER! LIAR! THEIF!

Rank-N-File
im standin with the rank-n-file
im marchin with the underground
our black hearts worn on our sleeves

let my imagination go
and drop me where
i feel most scared
snap back already giving thanks
im not trapped working a sweatshop somewhere

this songs for those less fortunate
locked in a world where both ends are not meant to meet

-chorus-

let my IMAGINATION go
and drop me where
i feel most scared
synaptic flashes in my head
then total thanks again
im not soldiering somewhere

this song is for the countless souls
who died in vain for someone..else's gain

-chorus-

left my birthplace for foreign streets
to strange places new faces i flew
shoeless kids stood on the corner
their eyes were transfixed on you

so im standin with the rank-n-file
im marching with the underground
my black heart worn on my sleeve
im standin with the rank-n-file im marchin with the underground
WITH OUR BLACK HEARTS WORN ON OUR SLEEVES!
ALL RIGHT!

Post-War Breakout
IM A POST WAR BREAKOUT!
And a post war breakdown
I’m a post war syndrome
And a post war hero

JUST A POST WAR NERVE CASE
In a pro war age, and a post war history face

IVE GOT A MEDAL IM A HERO!
IVE GOT AN ID IVE GOT AN EGO!
IVE GOT A POCKET BOOK NO DOUGH
Just a postwar shock job

I’m an evil minded breakdown
I’m a vulgar thinking crackdown
I’m a non commie drifter
I’m an ex- G.I for sure, oh sure

Just a post war nerve case
In a post war age
And a post war history face

-chorus-back to top
Sold as Freedom
you want to save the world?
i can tell you what to do!
you want to end terror?
this solution is for you!
answer the call up
join the proud the few
pull on the trigger with heart and soul
cuz war is peace
now we know
fight fire! with fire!
douse violent flames with gasoline!
Fight your fire! with fire!
Spite your foe with an all out holocaust
fight fire! with fire!
pour gasoline on the world inferno
burn it so hot that the world incinerates
when they're all dead we'll have no issues to resolve
to end terror it takes a special skill
kill, kill, kill?
till there's nothing left to kill
don't question orders-do your job and move
its a 9 to 5 and a 5 to 9 to make sure no one's left alive
fight fire! with fire!
douse violent flames with gasoline!
Fight your fire! with fire!
Spite your foe with an all out holocaust
fight fire! with fire!
pour gasoline on the world inferno
burn it so hot that the world incinerates
when they're all dead we'll have no issues to resolve
JOIN NOW! DON'T WAIT!
MAKE DEATH, YOUR DATE!
SALUTE AND FIGHT!
FIGHT FOR THE WEALTH OF THE FEW!
trapped in a flag and sold to you
sold as freedom
its up to you to see through lies
by those who've led us to endless world strife
what this world needs is something new
what this world needs right now is you
any dumb fuck can murder
KILL!...KILL!...KILL!!back to top
Power to the Peaceful
Sons and daughters of a dream
The urge to struggle for an ideal
To stay and fight
Oppose war fever
Refuse to kill or be killed
There's voices calling in the wind

Power to the peaceful
Power to the peaceful
Whoa-oh

Let's go
Oh yeah
Alright

With a readiness for war
They come down hard
In dissent of all forms
Blood and militaryism
Has swept the country by storm
There's voices calling in the wind

Power to the peaceful
Power to the peaceful
Whoa-oh

Power to the peaceful
Power to the peaceful
Whoa-oh

This is not a war
Of the urging people
This is not a war
Of economic independance
It's is a war of conquest
It's a war for military power
It's a war for money
The road to universal slaughter

Whoa no
Yeah go

Sons and daughters of a dream
The urge to struggle for an ideal
To stay and fight
Oppose war fever
Refuse to kill or be killed
There's voices calling in the wind

It's power to the peaceful
You know it's power to the peaceful

Alright
Check this out
There's repression and intolerance
On any deviation from the norm
In all factions
Of your life
At this time of entry
Into war

Say Hey
Do you know what to say?
Then say HEY
Yeah you know what to say?
Then say HEY
Do you know what to say?
Then say HEY

Power to the peaceful
Power to the peaceful
Whoa-oh

Power to the peaceful
Power to the peaceful
Whoa-oh

Alright

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Yeah!back to top
Mind the G.A.T.T.
this song is tight the lyrics are easy and fun with cool big words!

A brand new history silent and quickly. spakless in your eyes-hope your not missing.
The flash points/sign posts ethcing the future from here. ancient ancestors transmitting
VIA a pool formed from rainfall where my reflection stares back at me and says.
As the sun sets bright over ancient earth and disappears from view. The spirit of the world
will rise from the dis again, our voice sings in union. Lifeless. Soulless.
secret abyss, plotting the worlds doom. Production and comsumption wakes the sleeping world to sing
again. our voices singing union. from the african coast to the Australian mainland, watch your brothers back
watch your sisters back. the american plains to the sea of japan in your own backyard or in a far off foreing lands.
we find our adversaries woven of the same thread as evil hacks and rips at every corner of the world.
the peoples voice will sing as one voice. are voices sing in union. the implement a paul hawkens-esque
model for the world . the peoples voice will sing as one voice. our voices sing in union. The arabian sea to the
coast of chile. watch your brothers back watch your sisters back. the plateau of tibet to the bay of biscay.
in your own backyards or far off foreign lands. we find our adversaries woven of the same thread rethink.....
Fucking dig in! dont sit there and take it! they built it we can break it! WE'RE NOT GONNA STAND FOR ANY G.A DOUBLE T'S!back to top

Wake Up!
If I had a lighter in hands
With some oily rags
Is that what it'd take
To wake you from your sleep?
Woke up from your
American dreams
To be surrounded
Surrounded in flames!

You've got to scream
To make your voice heard
And I won't stop screaming
Until mine is heard

Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!

YEAH!

And if we blocked the streets
Everyday
Face down on the pavement
As we lay
You're angered
Cause you're five minutes late.
What happens next time
When we stop you all day?
Yeah, next time
When we stop you all day?

You've got to scream
To make your voice heard
And I won't stop screaming
Until mine is heard

Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you
Wake Up!
Wake Up!
To the world around you

And it's the same song sung
Sung at the top of our lungs

Tearing Down the Borders
This is an awesome song by a kick ass band....i will sumit more anti-flag lyrics soon enough....

Song: Tearing Down The Borders
Artist: Anti-Flag
Album: The Terror State

No one flag flies over the multi-national company.
No allegiance to the board's homeland, fellow citizens, the flag born of their country.
As the brainwashed nationalists move,
To shed their blood on battle fields.
War profiteering rich watch their stocks reap high yields.

We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.
We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.

GO!

No patriotic pledge from multi-national companies.
Only a commitment to lock away equality and steal away all freedom from the poorest of the poor.
So that the boardroom can insure
their stockholders profits are higher in return.

We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.
We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.

It's our world.
Let's take it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's our world.
Let's take it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's our world.
We want it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's your world.
Take your world back!

Take it, fucking back.

There's a call
A ringing sound
Around the globe
Its gaining ground
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh.

There's a voice in your heart
It beckons you to do your part
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh!

The line is drawn
In the sand
On one side your a slave
The other a free man
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh!
There's a call
Freedom's sound
Around the globe
Its gaining ground!
We're tearing down the border
We're tearing down the border
We're tearing down the borders, WOAH!back to top
Death of a Nation
When all you need was a little motivation
They pointed fingers and yelled dead generation
When all you need was a little care
You get nothing but an old white hair bland stare
Have you ever needed an ounce of love
And all you got was a whole lot of fucked
So say your prayers
It's the death of a nation
Say your prayers
For the dead generation
Condescending broad generalizations
Get real old real fast
Just because most hippies and their parents have sold out
Does not mean that you, your children and their kids won't last...
So say your prayers
It's the death of a nation
Say your prayers
For the dead generation
Agressivness is godliness
Combativness is holiness
Destructiveness is faithfullness
Deadliness is devoutness
Praying to a god that they created
And know damn well does not exist...
We find them on their kneesback to top
One People, One Struggle
the people united will never be defeated! (x6)
ALL RIGHT!
time to see the world as a whole
time to light the fire with the fuel
thats a conscience movement in our hearts
everywhere you look red, white and blue
everywhere you look they're fooling you
every revolutionary was once considered an enemy
cointel undermined the life of Dr.Martin Luther King
everywhere you look red, white and blue
everywhere you look they're fooling you
one people, one struggle
stand united, stand peaceful
one people, one struggle
time to see the world as a whole
time to light the fire with the fuel
thats a conscience movement in each and every one of your hearts
everywhere you look red, white and blue
everywhere you look they're fooling you
one people, one struggle
stand united, stand peaceful
one people, one struggle
one people, one struggle
stand united, stand peaceful
one people, one struggle
the union of free thinking
colors don't mean liberty
the union of free thinking
the union of free thinking
the people united will never be defeated! (x4)
one people, one struggle
stand united, stand peacefulback to top
