all Sick Of It All lyrics



No Cure
No cure, no end in sight.
No cure for poisoned minds.
No change, no change, after all this talk still living foul.
Ignorant, Ignorant, you think we would've learned by now.
Over and over same mistakes as before.
No end, no end, look around no end in sight.

When the damage done is to extensive.
Everyone ignores consequences.

Hatred, hatred, the only thing we give ourselves.
Heartless, heartless, no regard for anyone else.
Sickening, sickening, the way that greed rules our lives.
No cure, no cure, for the disease called mankind.

Look deep inside - for the cure to what ails mankind.
Look deep inside - we've got to live a more righteous life.
Look deep inside - can't change the world.
but you can change yourself...back to top
Insurrection
Resentful, I'm sure the feeling is mutual.
Power for those with the most capital.
Upper echelon not in touch at all.
Grabbing at straws, desperation.

Whatcha' gonna do about it?
Where are you gonna run?
Whatcha' gonna do about it
that you haven't already done?

No more joy in the lives of the skuoned and exited
Screaming from silence,
pent up inside us. All this frustration,
has bred all this violence.

In the commotion power was at hand,
in the confusion wealth was up for grabs,
both looked appealing we took all that we could,
control was ours and then we understood.

Helpless, I'm sure the feeling is typical.
Glory for those with the most capital.
Upper echelon we rule with an iron hand.
Crushing any insurrection.
Whatcha' gonna do about it
There's nothing you can do...back to top
Consume
No use ignoring me, I represent the darkest thing you feel.
No use avoiding me, I'm woven in the fabric of your being.
Don't back away from me, I feed on apprehension and fear.
Don't back away from me, don't blind yourself to what you really should be seeing.

A part of you that will consume if given the chance to,
A part of you that will abuse whenever allowed to.
A part of you that will consume if given the chance to,
A part of you that wants to see you loose it all.

C'mon, see what you get.
C'mon, when will you
Come to terms with what's inside,
Come to terms with what you try to hide.

Emotion overload, might really mean the end of the road.
Emotion overload, might mean the end of everything you know.
Emotional check, just might reveal emotional wreck.
Emotional check, just might reveal your weakness 'cause you've finished.back to top
Who Sets the Rules
Fly by night scenester, Fly by night hipster
One more newjack wants to set the rules
Fly by night scenester, Fly by night hipster

Never suffered, never paid the dues living contradiction,
live a lie oh so fashionable what a goddamn pitiful sight it must
be a great thing knowing it all spreading nausea with a brazen show of gall

Who sets the rules
The snobby fools
Who sets the rules

The facist who wants to rule
Living independent what a joke those caught dipping in a trust fund won't go
broke all this rhetoric is so hard to bear when the fool assumes a high and mighty air
People come and go, only some can really know who is laughable
who should be on a pedestal.

Trendy we'll see in the future what'll be, who is obsolete
The one who takes it to extremes.back to top
Goatless
Before us is an empty slate
we can impress how we please
Bombard them with the usual schlock
whatever we've got up our sleeve

Teach them that violence can solve all their problems
Teach them to act on a whim

The horror the one we present is just where the horror begins...
Violent fantasy, comes reality the effect will be quite a tragedy

We'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
of blame, Before us is a twisted world
no one can work out the knots we've got
an enemy here they could be blamed for a lot

We'll say they're the problem,
we'll say they're the cause
they'll be the scapegoat now - goatless - we'd be on the spot
we can't let the truth come out If
the pressure cracks another
and they know who to come after whe'd be goatlessback to top
Step Down
In the underground, integrity lies within
in the underground, image doesn't mean a thing
when the substance lacks it's plain for all to see
if the deal is right then respect is where it should be.

For the fakes and frauds it's a fucking fashion show
total compromise will have them sell their soul.
all the negative all the useless influence
all the emptiness all the violent detriment
makes no sense...

Please have more to give than fashion and images
please have more to give than fashion and images

Caught up in a trap of media crap that's no way to live
Caught up in a trap of media crap so little to give
Caught up in a trap of media crap that's no way to live
Caught up in a trap of media crap so little to give

In the underground, integrity lies within
in the underground, image doesn't mean a thing
we can do away with this negativity
it's a golden day we can force them to stepdownback to top
Maladjusted
Nothing satisfies, nothing will cause it won't get a chance to.
Altered spirit and altered mind take a turn for the worst soon.
Fear has struck, fear is stuck maladjusted

Assurance won't sit well at all cause no one is trusted
You've got what you wanted
the reason you came
control action control of the game

See through the happiness,
see through the sappiness
Seen through the front that obscures all the truth
and see ugliness, torture, torture and ugliness

Selfishness lost in a quagmire of human filth

Fear has struck, fear is stuck Maladjusted
Fear that rules a twisted fuck, Maladjustedback to top
Scratch the Surface
Scratch the surface serve a purpose
Scratch the surface don't waste my time

Such an empty life, night after night
All hidden faults, are such a shallow sight

Such simple sheep, herd to the creeps
Beauty is null, barely skin deep

What is the force that drives the superficial
Tell me what keeps their minds remaining little
What is the force that drives the superficial
Tell me what keeps their minds remaining...
So afraid of what they'd see underneath the fantasy
So afraid to actually Scratch the surface.

All mirrors hide... Faillure inside
That's maybe why they take so much

Big money lies, big lyin' eyes
Eye's are the soul of big dollar signsback to top
Free Spirit
We've taken to much for granted
the basis that some are denied
some choose to ignore this right while others would give up their lives.
For the chance to voice their opinions through all of the torture and crime
lies and deception won't change the direction of will in it's fight to survive
Freedom, not free, freedom

Even when kept in restraint the spirit continues to thrive
lies and deception won't change the direction of will
in it's fight to survive

Figures of oppression breathing down our necks
Free spirit continues to thrive
Free spirit in the face of denial this oppression,
the depression answer it with indignationback to top
Force My Hand
Why do what you do? Is this major malfunction new
Isn't it clear to everyone here
What died deep inside
Is benevolence now denied
What about pride was it cast aside

So when I see you friend companionship will come to an end
cause of the way you drove me to dismay.

Force - force my hand - forced to take a hostile stand
force - force my hand - forced into a violent plan
Never gonna want another like it

Benefit me benefit you please benefit the whole damn world
nobody needs your criminal greed couldn't you change -
rearrange put your character back in place
it's a waste to see someone so base Guilt is put away for another day
conscience really non-existent only in the way Lowest of the low
caught in undertow swimming in a sea of dirt sinking as you go Please don't do this...back to top
Desperate Fool
Crime, crime against the soul
it does more damage than anyone
can know as the voctims suffer,
the secrets that they hold will eat away inside them 'till they finally explode.

Desperate fool - unforgivable - We're gonna do away with you
Desperate fool - unforgivable - Your kind won't stand a chance you call yourself a man?
Let's leave your fate up to those who've been raped.
You impose yourself a lot no means no,
you don't know when to stop it's body,
it's soul it's all humanity that's what's violated can't you see you're really hated
Step up the plate you challenge fate you've earned a castration
you're face to face with your victims rage you deserve this lacerationback to top
Return to Reality
Return to reality Avoiding the treachery
Return to reality Witness against the fools of the world
playing a game so cruel
how long before the lesson is learned
will it be understood

Witness against the fools of the world
caught up in their own trap see how they look
so insecure just holding their weakness back

Suddenly stripped of focus in life
suddenly faced with loss
hitting just like a slap in the face bringin' it down to earth
Channeling this aggression,
confused how will it manifest keeping the sanity
without just keeping it all repressed

In the end what presents itself is the truth and the ugliness
never seen when the eyes are closed or blinded...
The effect of the file world amplified upon return
and so tempted to play the game so malicious...

Witness against the fools of the world playing a game
so cruel how long before the lesson is learned
will they ignore the words
Witness against the fools of the world caught up in their own trap
see how they look so insecure Fakely hard in their own actback to top
Farm Team
A new direction, old approach
ideas are borrowed, bought and sold
they take the credit, not the blame
leading the blind in their game
They want control with no truth
the token phrases won't come thru
Don't rest your hopes, on their backs
When their gone they won't look back
They're on the outside and looking in
for what can shape the latest trend
they'll rape the substance with no return, and steal the credit not
earned you think that we're the ones the ones who lost out when
the rules were set to win at any cost we'll stand defiant, we'll stand alone
Through years of disrespect that desecrates the soul
The times are changing but not our minds
The spirit strenghtens with the passing of time
We'll stand defiant, we'll stand alone
Through years of disrespect that desecrates the soulback to top
Cease Fire
I will never yield in my restoration won't look,
won't look back though
I was torn to pieces nothing will destroy my determination
I won't be surpressed my voice will now be heard
Cease fire - What did I say I didn't mean to blow the world away
Cease fire - What do you know my mouth is like the barrel of a gun
Cease fire - What did I say, disarm (It's time to just disarm)
You're to cautious in the new day of this nation
it's so volatile words can cause an explosion so
I went to far so I shred up action
I had no idea the end would come so easy
Disarm, disarm, we're too far gone, we're to far gone
Someone please put out the flames
Yeah I know it's me to blame
Arrogance will never payback to top
