21 Guitar Salute
Ready, Aim, Fire

You work all fucking week,
go out on Friday night
You're looking for some action
and you settle for a fight

Okay, steady, get ready
everybody pull in the loot
We got the equalizer
it's a 21 guitar salute

It's a 21 guitar salute, it's a 21 guitar salute
It's a...

We saw him sitting there,
a-drinking my beer
And I went in for the war
it's 7 o'clock on a Saturday night and I'm so fucking bored

Okay, steady, get ready
everybody gets to shoot
We got a 21 gun salution
it's a 21 guitar salute

It's a 21 guitar salute, it's a 21 guitar salute
It's a...

[solo]

Okay, steady, get ready
everybody pull in the loot
We got the equalizer
it's a 21 guitar salute

It's a 21 guitar salute, it's a 21 guitar salute
It's a...

I hear the sounds of marching feet in the distance
and there's a bloody revolution in the air
And I know what this looks like, but it isn't
'cause I just want to blow something upback to top
Fortunate Son
[Originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival]

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
Ooh, theyíre red, white and blue.
And when the band plays hail to the chief,
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, lord,

It ainít me, it ainít me, I ainít no senatorís son, son.
It ainít me, it ainít me; I ainít no fortunate one, no,

Yeah!
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, donít they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,

It ainít me, it ainít me, I ainít no millionaireís son, no.
It ainít me, it ainít me; I ainít no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, lord,
And when you ask them, how much should we give?
Ooh, they only answer more! more! more! yoh,

It ainít me, it ainít me, I ainít no military son, son.
It ainít me, it ainít me; I ainít no fortunate one, one.

It ainít me, it ainít me, I ainít no fortunate one, no no no,
It ainít me, it ainít me, I ainít no fortunate son, no no no,back to top
On the Attack
the scene often changes, the kids come and go but history's for sure and this much i know. the root of tough music for america's youth was old school hardcore, you know it's the truth! this is my world, wolfpack, last rights. the kids will have their say another wasted night. there's many forms of music, and they all play a part, as long as the meaning comes straight from the heart. so open you eyes and please use your brain, 'cause punk, oi!, and hardcore, are one in the same because today we carry on, and the numbers have grown, a social movement that we call our own. so let's stick together with our friends at our backs, because the climate is changing, we're on the attack!back to top
Watch Your Back
This is a DKM cover of the cock sparrer song

Everybody's talking about
revolution, Everybody's talking
about smash the state. Sounds
to me like the final solution.
Left wing, right wing,
full of hate.
chorus: We don't wanna fight,
because you tell us to. So
watch your back when you
attack ', Coz we might just turn
on you.
Things get worse with every
hour, the future fades into the
past. All they want is total
power, climbing on the backs of
the working class. We don't
wanna be part of no new
religion, we don't wanna be
part of a political dream. We
just wanna get on living our
lives.back to top
Vengeance
[Originally by The Nips]

Well I remember the times you put me down on the floor
Spreading it around like a cheap little whore
But now you've finished with your fancy man
A skinny little runt from Birmingham

I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance, gonna get it somehow
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
I'm gonna really make him pay for what he's done
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
Nobody spoils my fun

Well I was crying
But now I've stopped
And you were lying
The penny's dropped

So shut your mouth and lay on the bed
And when I'm finished with you, I'm gonna break his head
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
I'm gonna really make him pay for what he's done
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
Nobody spoils my fun

Well I had my very last night with you
You pushed me too far and now we're through
You're running to the car and you think you're cute
But you're the kind of bitch that they ought to shoot

I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance, gonna get it somehow
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
I'm gonna really make him pay for what he's done
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
Nobody spoils my fun

Well I was crying
Yeah, But now I've stopped
And you were lying
The penny's dropped

So shut your mouth and lay on the bed
And when I'm finished with you, I'm gonna break his head
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
I'm gonna really make him pay for what he's done
I'm gonna hit him, I'm gonna kill him
Nobody spoils my fun
Nobody spoils my fun

I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance, gonna get it somehow
I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance, gonna get it somehow
I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance and I want it now
I want vengeance and I want it
I want it now!back to top
Warlords
[Originally by F.U.]

Five years ago you were safe with your TV
Never even though what your future might be
Now youíre just a packrat picking through the rubble
Scared of your own shadow trying to hide from the trouble
Where is that comfort to which you were devoted?
Werenít you surprised when your world exploded?
Your hiding days are over now that weíve found you
Resist or surrender doesnít matter weíll destroy you

Warlords join us or weíll blow you away

Maybe you got brains maybe youíre ruthless
Maybe youíre lucky and we might let you join us
Maybe you just got something that we need
Your house or your food or your guns or your body
Donít ask us for mercy we donít know what it means
The closest friend I got is my m-16
We like to have fun we love to go berserk
Murder rape and pillage hey itís all in a days work

Warlords join us or weíll blow you away

A trail of victims a legacy of blood
We left the competition bleeding in the mud
We got the numbers we got the guns
And if you got more than us we know enough to run

Warlords join us or weíll blow you awayback to top
Alcohol
[Originally by Gang Green]

Got the time when the sun goes up
We'll drink until we drop
My love for hundred brews
That soothes, the foot's been dropped
Not enough for the men on the walk
I drive and drink till I drop

No doubt about it
Can't live without it
No doubt about it
I can't live without it, alcohol
Alcohol

Why it's my destiny?
You get the beer
We get the time
You get the coke, gimme a line

No doubt about it
Can't live without it
No doubt about it
I can't live without it, alcohol

Got the time when the sun goes up
We'll drink until we drop
I drive and drink till I drop

You get the beer
We get the time
You get the coke, gimme a line

No doubt about it
Can't live without it
No doubt about it
I can't live without it

Mob Mentality
[This song is done by 'McBusiness' which is a combination of the Dropkick Murphys and the Business]

Styles and opinions change faster than the world
For plastic punks seeking teenage pleasure
You donít know what it is to earn your pay
What do you know about the scene today

I see youíre living in a mob mentality

Wanna be a working class old school
Youíre A deadhead around the block
Thinking youíre one of the mob
Youíve only been around since Ď92
Nirvana Offspring Green Day too

I see youíre living in a mob mentality
What do you fucking know
You best get ready for a forced reality
Can you stand on your own

Skinheads on the web page punks on the net
You know what itís about well I think you forget
Chocking on your greed is the price you pay
What do you know about the scene today

I see youíre living in a mob mentality
I see youíre living in a mob mentality
What do you fucking know
You best get ready for a forced reality
Can you stand on your ownback to top
Informer
[Originally by The Business]

Why'd you give him 18 years
Leave a family drowning in tears
Baby boy baby girl
Now their lives a living hell

Some say it shouldn't be done
But life on the dole ain't no fun
Shouldnít have been done
Youíre an informer

You didn't have to name him to the law
Just trying to stop from being poor
Hopes the kids will pull through
Without a dad coz of you

Some say it shouldn't be done
But life on the dole ain't no fun
Shouldnít have been done
Youíre an informerback to top

The numbers, alright

19 men were tried and fired
August 26th through 29th
For violation of rule 35
The forbidden right to organize
They suffered the loss
Of their lively hood that night
That night!

A city tear on the thin blue line
A thousand plus walked off the charts
To support their brother's hearts
The anti-union threw a bitchin' course
Demanded loyalty and any price
On the thin blue line
On the thin blue line
On the thin blue line

19 men were tried and fired
August 26th through 29th
For violation of rule 35
The forbidden right to organize
They suffered the loss
Of their lively hood that night
That night!

For violation of rule 35
The forbidden right to organize
They suffered the loss
Of their lively hood that nightback to top
