Taste the Poison
Abstinence works for me, not for them
Intolerance, far worse things? This makes no sense
Get high on me and mine
Take the poison
Raise a voice? The art of making noise
Attacking stance? Fist in face for personal
choice
So witless? self, self, self.
Take the poison
Two polluting lifestyle doctrines in defense
Re-assess the threats to well-being
Re-direct
And clear your heads
Dialogue (is a) powerful drug?
(not) verbal poison
Abstinence works for me, not for them.
Intolerance, far worse things? this makes no sense
Take the poisonback to top
Next on the List
Shane embury

Next on the list ?

Such a smug parasite
Smug in a comfort zone
We stepped back and watched
While you vidated
Our effects, our spirits, our souls

Opportunist scum ?
Think you're so immune ?
Opportunist scum ?
We yearn to see you removed
Opportunist scum ?
Truly spineless cint
Opportunist scum ?
Back in this lonthsome glas

Where once I was passive,
I'm ready to snap
A pound of flesh for those that you've taken
That smiling surround can't shield you forever
When it slips, we'll be there
To fuck your world !

A slap in the face
A slap in the face

Don' tturn your back, don't lower your guard.
Or assume you're safe among fellows sharks
'cause whan I catch that patronising smirk
(it) strenghtens my will
To smash your worthless buck

A slap in the face
A slap in the face
A slap in the face
Goodbye to logic for this neccesary justice
Goodbye to logic for this neccesary justiceback to top
Constitutional Hell
Mitch harris, shane embury

Everything fits nicely into place
Higher powers take the lead
Middleman sits pondering his worth
One great scheme to stem (the) objective urge

Decision-making
And power playing
One-upmanship

Show of hands
To clasp the myth
Vote in a new scourge

Everything fits nicely into place
Higher powers take the lead
Issues are decided
Before we've chance to think
And moral high ground wins the day again

Decision-making
And power playing
Principles spurned

Show of hands
To clasp the myth
Favours for my friends

It's a constitutional hell
Where they pontificate and yell
Where etiquettes out play integrity
It's a constitutional hell

Everything fits nicely into place
Higher powers take the lead
I'll sum up on all the good
You've done this earth

Nothing ! !back to top
Vermin
Barney greenway

The rats on / this earth / have nothing on you
An insect / to those which / crawl the sewers

Devourer, plunderer, deceptor

Sniff out a / scheme / and leave the scraps behind
Voracious ? insatiate ? a nose attuned to greed

Devourer, plunderer, deceptor

Evade all traps
And come out gnashing, snarting,
Gnashing, snarting !

Disguise are many
Media palm or man in the street.

They'll scavenge your emotions
And leave you diseased
They'd steal a last possession
And smile as you concede

Devourer, plunderer, deceptorback to top
Volume of Neglect
Mitch harris, jesse pintado

Speculate freely
Begrudge me intensely
Lacking a conscience
Lacking intelligence
Lesser than nothing
Lower than everything
As you drain our vitality
To a mundane reality

A form of therapy
Without compensation
A vague psychology

Free from obligation.
Intercept the negligence
Accept the consequence
Amongst barbaria
Mass hysteria

Opposite in a sign to abide
When the future is ours to decide
We continue to watch and observe
Just to find out what purpose it serves

Paralysed ? a spectacle / for all to see
Hapiness within our grasp, but out of reach

Volume of neglect
Forcibly expressed
Volume of neglect
Forcibly expressed

Devastate a silhouette ? calm and serene
Abandon / a systematic insane routine

Volume of neglect
Forcibly expressed
Volume of neglect
Forcibly expressed

Opposite in a sign to abide
When the future is ours to decide
We continue to watch and observe
Just to find out what purpose it servesback to top
Thanks for Nothing
Mitch harris

Serve my head on a plate
Pulp my heart with ill will
I did trust you,
Let to lust you, to be duped

Thanks for fucking nothing !
Serve my head on a plate
Pulp my heart with ill will
Sensed a mystique ? turn to spent air ?
Killed it dead

Thanks for fucking nothing
Scap the dephts to salvage something
Thanks for fucking nothing
Drained my all, then drop the bombshell

True, we were not joined ?
Our evey feature spliced
Though you rushed in and took a lead
Three words spouted

This contagion
Crossed all divides
Caused a shift in protective focus

Three words flouted

Unnntimely end, I should've clicked ?
A sensory cut-out
A spoiling of the harmony,
Of which we were about
I don't despise or demonise,
But I just know your form
Walk right out and move along,
And teap before you look

Thanks for fucking nothing !back to top
Can't Play, Won't Pay
Mitch harris

Ten years
Of all-sides sniping
Fairness under fire

Ten long years
Rubbished objectives
Two-pronged shower of bite

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high roller

Suited
And heftity booted
So casual and concerned

Network
Makes the acquaintance
Dance to soulless tunes

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high roller

Get this prick away from me
Smash him and the leeching clique

Fawning grin that pulls you in
Golden windshake on the take
Get this prick away from me

(we're) enemies of the music business
You corporate fuck !
Enemies of the music business
Black sheep on the cust
Enemies of the music business

Ten long years
Still didn't finish us
Much to their disdain

Ten long years
Regained the impetus
Thorns in cash-whores side

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high rollerback to top
Blunt Against the Cutting Edge
Mitch harris

Blunt / on the cutting / edge
This is a stylistic disaster
Or so I'm told
Won't meet your estimations
Do well to fold
Can't keep up
To the (dummy) run
Am I redundant ?

Integrity dressed down
By the cuts of their threads

Nice and neat
(with a) sideline in grief ?
I'll say inkempt

A real cutting edge is the scourge of the norm
For all the angst, you're tantrum-fuelled dolls

Abrasiveness a convenience
Sell for a score
Come up clean doing the dirty
Cut and run, then dissolve

Mould in motion
See straight through
Transparent you

A real cutting edge is the scourge of the norm
For all the angst, you're tantrum-fuelled dolls

I'm blunted, I'm blunted against the cutting edge
Sharpeness diminished through truth to myself

I'm rusted, I'm rusted against the cutting edge
Sigh-times cloud over when met with pretence

Together,
Drop the act !
Drop the act !

I'm blunted, I'm blunted against the cutting edge
Sharpeness diminished through truth to myself

I'm rusted, I'm rusted against the cutting edge
Sigh-times cloud over when met with pretence
Drop the act !
Drop the act !back to top
Cure for the Common Complaint
So drawn? I warm to the fire in their hearts
This ain't romantic gesturing
It's a hand to head the charge
To the indifference of the preening, idle rich
Such champions are cancerous, tumours in the gut
of affluent bliss
Why let these scab observers tag them trouble-makers?
It's naive? You're on a leash.
This is the cure for their common complaint [x2, second time scream]
Ditch the gullibility
Strike 'til the green runs dry
bring them to their knees
Or squander as they thrive
Reject the cure for their common complaint [x2, second time scream]
On break,
Agitate!
Hoist those standards, arm in arm
Walk the walk and talk the talk
Agitate! Agitate! Agitate!back to top
Necessary Evil
I dissolve to a dream of the past
Terminate. to remove. falling fast.

At the end of the chain thoughts collect
Execute. a degree. I defect.

What’s it worth ?
Sacrifice the earth. it bleeds.
Meet your needs.
Devilish deeds.

Reconcile. understood. contemplate.
Desecrate. to denounce. detonate.

Tentative. to reject. overdue.
Final stage. tocomplete. follw through.

Far too late.
Absolute hell ? this hell.
An empty shell.
Desolate cells.

A necessary evil ? bargaining pleas.
Held at ransom ? our souls diseased.
A necessary evil ? the dominant role.
There’s no escape ? you crossed the solitary line.back to top
C.S. (Conservative Shithead), Pt. 2
Jesse Pintado

Tiresome / -out-grown / rebel's seen the light.
Re-a / djusted ? Dissolved his stauch defiance.

The Anti-Christ shifts to the right.
He wears his 'X' and reviles mine
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears

Moved out of / step-seeking distorted views .
Slack-brained soundbites serve his public slop
Decries our values in decline.
But should we starve, then that's just fine.

Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Knee-jerk reactionnary.
The Anti-Christ shifts to the right.
His past a convenient oversight.

Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Decries our values in decline.
He'd flick the switch and watch us fry.back to top
Mechanics of Deceit
Shane embury

Cloacks of sickness / keeping us sweet
Delusional blackness / fictional madness
Visionary blackness / traps are set
Revolting mind doors conspiring our downfall

Which came first ? the lies or deceit ?
Why did the suffering cross the divide ?
The dealer sold his soul / to hide
And left us on the other side.

The business lessons for which we burn
Desolate loops in which we turn
Saga of fools, a voyage of trust
No contracts bound.

Gathering dust
Which came first ? the secret or the crime ?
Where does the loyalty cross the line ?
The dealer sold his soul to hide
And left us on the other side.

Tranquillise our denial
Vengeance is mine
Capitalize / on regret
Kick aside what aspires
Vengeance is ours
Our defence won't expire

Eat-the-shit with-a-smile don't-be-frail
Our word is bond.
Face the wall ; fill the mould that we take
And break with our hands
Sign the line ; it's your life
Don't be squeamish
Take he time, take the sweat
Clock back your tongue

Mechanics, mechanics, mechanics of deceit
Glorified, butchered, bathed in malice
Sign the line ; it's your life
Don't be squeamish
Take he time, take the sweat
Clock back your tongue
Eat the shit with a smile don't be a frail

Cloacks of sickness / keeping us sweet
Delusional blackness / fictional madness
Visionary blackness / traps are set
Revolting mind doors conspiring our downfall

Which came first ? the lies or deceit ?

(The Public Gets) What the Public Doesn't Want
Name your price for progress
Impoverished settle the bill
Clear a path--coming through!
Clear a path--coming through!
Stylize
Making it easy/ on the eye
Keep our distance--too underformed to grace the sublime
Flatter to decieve
Building arthouse cosmetics
Like a mismatched prosthetic
Like a mismatched prosthetic
Spreads like wildfire
Burgeoning yuppie nirvana
Highbrow aesthetics
Decadents always crave more
Marvel at/ the sleek design
The wilting talk/ of curves and lines
A piece-de/ resistance
To banish my pig-norance
The public gets/ what the public doesn't want
What use is this/ to man or beats
It glosses over/ basic needs
The public gets/ what the public doesn't want
Access denied/ we're utter philistines
Access denied/ we're utter philistines
Caged in the exclusion zone
Pass away/ in sepia tones
The public gets/ what the public doesn't want
Access denied? Accept we're cultural slime
Access denied? Accept we're cultural slimeback to top
Fracture in the Equation
Jesse pintado

Battered frantic, dressed in tragedy
Reach the point where time's caught up ? why me ?
Paths we choose, the sorrows we cause.
It's all forgotten instantly as pain calls.

Just a fracture
In the equation of designs
Self-destructure
Drawing out life

Neutral unknown, a nervous calm
Answers tactically arranged ? stalling time.

Just a fracture
In the equation of designs
Self-destructure
Drawing out life

Second chance.back to top
