> THE LYRICS / THE EP COMPILATION

Circle pit 

We pride ourselves in the integrity of our herds, but words are just words are just words. While the brand you wear is the same as mine, we can´t be out of step if we´re still in line. One more round - we wouldn´t want to trade new ground. Another circle drawn for another carbon copy as we limit ourselves to the flag of our flock. Circle pit mentality - individ removal - cut to fit - for punkrock head approval. A shepherd vacancy, but don´t look to us. All that phony Beatle mania has bitten the dust. The circle complete in the imitation zone - find a new king for the throne.

Lick it clean 

With my face smashed against the concrete I find it hard to speak. The inevitable freedom of oppression and I stay down. Kneel down to our masters that left us to die - we´ll get our taste of freedom licking the pavement clean. Obey the truth or suffer the consequence, smiling face with teeth kicked in. We nod and we move along, we nod as we sing along. Kneel down to our gods that left us to die - we´ll get our taste of freedom licking the pavement clean. Give praise to our opportunities - give thanx with our hands tied. We laugh when patted on the back and then we die. And I still believe every word - and all the great heroes. And I still believe every word - and all the grand promises. And I still believe every word - and all the stunning progress. And I still believe every word - and still I stay down. I have nothing so I get my head kicked in. Won´t make a sound. Thanx again...

Jag äter inte mina vänner 

Djuren, djuren är människor, katter är människor. Hundar är människor. Hästar, hästar är människor. Apor är människor. Kossor är människor. Och människor ska vara vänner, det finns inga "dom" bara "vi". Det finns något vackert i allting som föds. Jag äter inte mina vänner för dom är en del av mig - som jag kan leva med och växa med i all evighet. Tanken, tanken är männsikor. Fåglar är människor. Elefanter är männsikor. Råttor, råttor är människor. Ormar är människor. Lammet är människa. Och lammet skall leka med hajar när freden är mer än ett ord. Det du äter skall döma din själ. Jag äter inte mina vänner för dom är en del av mig - som jag kan leva me och växa med i all evighet. Hur kan vi vara fridfulla när vi skapar sån misär. Hur kan vi vara kärleksfulla när vi kärleken förtär. Låt kärleken vara nu. Låt sanningen vara du... Jag äter inte mina vänner för dom är den del av mig - som jag kan leva med och växa med i all evighet.

Cheap... 

In for the kill, we'll make the final call. Serve you happy, serve you happy, glad that we are in control. All watered down, our rescue, leaves you naked. Cure the symptoms, then slam the nails down. Cheap excuses, cheap promises, cheap lifes. Sold you cheap. You can't depend, we sold you long ago, provide the cure, provide the laws, first make you sick. We'll redefine, all changes gone by call. All spoken, all broken, doesn't mean anything at all. Take some more- and you'll settle for less Take some more- and you'll settle for nothing Cheap excuses, cheap promises, cheap lifes. Sold you cheap. We'll pay the cost for all the living that is lost. Arrgghh...

Burn it 

Another page in a history book. Another lie to justify the lands we took. Another page in a history book. Another lie to forget the lives we took. History repeats itself in another second. Exploitation for generations and we just don´t get it. Burn it - burn this lie down. Burn it - no more enslavement. Burn it - burn this history page. Burn it - just burn it. Human life is still worth less than possession of power, and we are the slaves of today under fascist co-operations. Structured to maintain the awareness and civilizations we made. The lands we plundered and the cultures we raped, we are all a part of progression. The victims of a capitalist system, just statistics in history books that glorify the mass murders and the genocides. What has changed and what have we accomplished in our strive for equality? Oppression rules and money controls in a world where war is still beneficial for those in power. In a sexist, racist, homophobic existence we still fight for freedom.

Symbols 

How come your symbols of freedom only restrict? How come your symbols of pride to me ain´t worth nothing? What better way to oppress us than to make us safe. To make us nod in approval to the limits we created. Our freedom our bill of rights just assureanced to make us abide. To make us serve their purposes and to serve our time. But I will destroy a system that's built on greed, I will destroy tradition that make us bleed, I will shut down the power of all who have lied to me, I will defy their image of what they wan´t me to be.

Sunflower princess 

The weight of my words is not enough to make up for the words I didn´t say. I´m sorry, I didn´t wan´t to close the door, just afraid to suffocate. Inside this these arms I find comfort, I will try not to break another mirror because that would mean that I would only break myself. This body, where has it taken me, forsaked me. Let me be. My eyes never felt this soar. If I only had known more, self centered, myself to blame. Death is fucking you insane. A selfish boy with fear and doubt afraid to let it inside. I promised myself that I won´t break it another time. No questions asked, just answers taken. My guilt, my thoughts, my mind were whose to judge? I think I need to breath, to let the door be open but the only one who is choking me is myself. Why can´t I see that you are the sun, the rain, the fuel I need inside. Why can´t I see? I´ll try. I won´t listen. I´ll cry. Sunflower princess.

I am not me 

I will choose my diet with care and like that wasn´t enough, I already wrote a good bye note to say farewell to you. Your TV-world, your fake ideals, your selfish ways, compromising truth. Nothing has to come to an end. I´m so glad I never followed you. Impossible to progress, burn your flag to possess the strength and knowledge that you repress. I choose my diet with comfort and like that wasn´t enough I wrote you a thank you note for what you tried to make of me. A prepackaged blueprint, a cut to fit product. Thank you for absolutely nothing. We are just blueprints - we are just products. Individuality lost to conformity - I am not me. we are just blueprints - we are just products. Individuality now means anonymity - we are not free.

Everlasting 

This one will not change - turn down that fad again. Complacency - overcome, overdone. Everlasting - I´ve won. No second chance - it´s just begun. Stuck down in convenience, tradition chosen way. Who describes, who decides our idea of fun? I will not become what I despise, I found a reason, your truths are lies. Directed, attached. Reason will overcome the bounds of conformity. We are still waiting. Struggle to overcome generations of second hand liars. Struggle to overcome the past mistakes.

The real 

The real revolution starts within. Lock down and caged, our lives directed. We just can´t ignore the real reasons. We are just as much to blame an anyone else. Silent in apathy we won´t make a difference. How can we say that we are a part of the problem, that´s not true. Stereotype values and intoxication won´t bring about change. There´s a reason for the rejection, I feel it in my range. A protest to insuffíciency, a purpose to save and heal. A balance to recover the distorted picture. Words means nothing - action is what counts when I comes down to it - don´t count me out.

Pretty face 

I try to write every line with perfection. Scarred to constant remember the violence, the wound you put me trough. I never meant the pain to you. Weak one shall continue as weak one and when it hurts it won´t be the last time. Clouded thoughts makes it harder to fly. Your pornographic dream is a lie. This pretty face. Suppose I could oppose the role that you set for me. The object you tried to make of me. But this time I will just close my eyes. Bite my lips and and try not to cry. Point that gun at your own head, kill this male ego dead. Constantly fueled, constantly fed, watch this beautiful skin turn red. Your constant abuse, your constant comments, your constant date rapes and constant drive to destroy this pretty face.

Perception 

Pacifying, uneducating - what did you learn on TV today? Network and media controlling the masses. Feeding us lies made up to be true. By abuse use reality can be twisted into the reality that fits us today. Cause we never doubt the genuinity of the things they told us. We follow their rules as hypnotized fools. No questions asked but the answers are all given and who sets the rules - who sets the rules? It serves us ideals, fashion and prejudice. What better way to learn about life. Glamorizing death but hiding the real facts. And it's worth for us to see through their eyes. But we can see so much more then their selective, subjective flow of information. We never question - the integrity of their faces. We never question - the intention behind - We never question - the stories told to us. Cause we just follow blind.

Who died? 

Simple solution, rejected for a change of views. I'm just evolving, I'm not better than you. I've changed - you said - I said - it's sad. You don't accept, the things that I believe. It will bleed, cause I still feel. I've changed - you said - I said - it's sad. Too bad you didn´t see the other side of me. Losing you it really hurt me. I'm not superior, I'm just a human being, so losing you it really hurt me. Cause you didn't take the time to see...

The new deal 

Nazi propaganda, another lie. You don't get it, never did, never will. Try to deny events of history, so blinded by your white pride that you don't see. Excuses, excuses to cover up the facts. You're blindfolded. To scared to look back. The fake empire is on the rise, but most people don't care and they don't open up their eyes. If you make up a lie and sell it big enough some people will buy cause they are stupid enough. We gotta stop this hate. We gotta end this trend. The silent majority, too scared to see that fear and aggravation only brings violent ways. Cause when foreign hostility is at it's peak people seem to go for the easy answers. In this time and age it is easy to create a "new" wave or movement that inspires hate. A trend of dividing, just right in time, when immigration, overpopulation is on everyones mind.

Guilty 

We are not in need. We are just too confortable to care...to change. How kan we say not gulity. How can we plead that we're not responsible, that we're just satisfying our need. But who does it really satisfy? A fucking industri that promotes murder, destruction and brutality. We lost our compassion, lost our consciousness. How can murder be justified and extinction legal. In the name of progress and profit we've chosen our fate. Cause as long as we continue to support this killing technology we'll only have ourselves to blame when the worlds coming to an end.

Hate breeds hate 

Foundation of a nation built on fucking lies. Another welfare state tumbles and dies. System of oppression in the land of the free. Your equality and freedom means nothing to me. The rich pulls the strings of the politicians. To the voice of the people noone is really listening. I thought it was called democracy. I don´t think you know what the word means. Hate breeds Hate. People going crazy hunting their goals. Struggling to the top without any control. I see the green illusion developing greed, overcoming common sense and what we really need. Diseases spreading all across the land. Crack kills so does guns in their hands. American interference in another war. Do the public know what the fuck for?

Break 

You say the problems don't concern you. Well, wake the fuck up cause they really do. How many ways are society going to fuck it up? How many lies until we've had enough? We gotta start to care about the consequences. Take a look around, it doesn't make any sense. Pollution, oppression, violence and destruction lies, deceit, poverty and corruption. Our ignorance has made us blind to the problems that we are facing. Our indifference, our tolerance makes me sick. Indoctrinate lies, covering our eyes. Mold us into the mainstream, taking our lives. We gotta break these chains...

Where's equality? 

Look at these differences we've created, marked, branded thaught to be hated. Biological differences cant imply hate but mindlessness and indoctrination can. Values maintained and held through time force fed upon our weak minds. Yesterdays segregation is still a truth, equal values, no way. You say things are different - no, Its still the same. You say things are different - some things don't ever change. Some say we have an equal society. No, no its not the way that I see. When people are oppressed for their sexuality and AIDS is still a gay disease. When woman don't have the right to choose cause it's against church morality. Then how can we say, how can we claim that we have equality?

Soft 

To much degredation - I'm going to tell the truth. I'm going to spit it out - bring it out - twist the chords - Too much bullshit inflicted - too many stories told. I'm fed up with lies - so fed up - no more. I'm not going soft like you. Too much pressure taken - you've lost the cause. You lost your self esteem - your conscious mind. I'm still in touch with reality - I'm still going to fight. I'm infrangible - I'm still here. I'm still here - I'm still hard. I'm still here - but you've gone soft. The edge hasn't gone dull.

I Wish

I wish that I, I wish that I, I wish that I could pick myself up. Trapped, imprisoned, I know no other way to be. No matter how hard I try I'm never gonna be really free. Surrounded by lies, try to hold my integrity, searching for a higher goal, trying to find the real me. I wish that I - could change my values and ignore the hate inside. I wish that I - could put the pieces back and make another try. Being dragged down in this ocean of fools, their golden horse god, obey their master, money rules. Try to reach the surface but my emotions drag me down, I cant control myself, my rage makes me drown. I try, I try, I try to look beyond the whole, its time to realize there's gotta be something more. In acts of selfishness we tend to ignore what we really are living for.
