the handbook for revolutionaries part 1
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.
the music's gotten boring it's because of the people who want everyone
to sound the same. It's time to get our priorities straight, skip the uniforms,
quit the punkier-than-you-attitude and start realizing that if punk and
hardcore will ever be a threat we need to get our shit together. 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
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...
It's over and over again the ones who can't afford it are being the ones that are sacrificed in the name of our nations welfare and market adapted economy. Single-mothers, students, old, and the blue collar workers have to sacrifice themselves for big business and capitalist schemes. It's time to fight back...
