Track Name: I Love my Job
IT’S GOT STAFF APPRAISAL
IT’S GOT MEETING ROOMS
AN H.R. DEPARTMENT
AND A SWIPECARD ENTRY SYSTEM

I LOVE MY JOB

IT’S GOT POLICIES & PROCEDURES
ITS GOT A STAFF CANTEEN
A BACKED UP TOILET
AND A FUCKED UP CHRISTMAS PARTY

I LOVE MY JOB

IT’S GOT POLICIES AND COMPLIANCE
TEAM BUILDING EXERCISES
AND A HARDLINE ATTITUDE TO LUNCHTIME DRINKING…

I LOVE MY JOB
I LOVE IT
I LOVE MY JOB
Track Name: Spit on Your Flag
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOU DISPLAY A FLAG?
IS IT SHORTHAND FOR YOUR VALUES?
OR IS IT NOTHING MORE THAN ALLEIGANCE TO A BRAND
LIKE BEANS OR DETERGENT?

I SPIT ON YOUR FLAG
AND YOU CAN SPIT ON MINE

DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL INCLUDED?
I GENUINELY DON’T UNDERSTAND
‘COS TO ME IT SEEMS EXCLUSIVE AND AGGRESSIVE
A STANCE BORNE OF FEAR OF DIFFERENCE AND CHANGE

I SPIT ON YOUR FLAG
AND YOU CAN SPIT ON MINE

PRIDE IN YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS IS A WONDERFUL THING
BUT PRIDE IN YOUR BIRTHPLACE JUST MAKES NO SENSE!
IT’S JUST A PATCH OF EARTH ON WHICH YOU HAPPEN TO BE BORN, SO…

I SPIT ON YOUR FLAG
AND YOU CAN SPIT ON MINE
Track Name: Brutal Regimes
FROM EUROPE TO THE MIDDLE EAST
EVERY CORNER OF THE EARTH
FROM THE PLAYGROUND TO THE PENAL SYSTEM
FEAR THE WORST AND WHAT YOU’RE WORTH

IN EVERY WALK OF LIFE
BY GUN, WORD, POLICY OR KNIFE (I SEE…)
BRUTAL REGIMES

FROM THE TERRITORIAL MARKINGS
OF GANG CONTROLLED ESTATES
TO GOVERNMENTS’ DEPLOYMENT
OF AGENTS OF THE STATE

FROM MEETING ROOM TO FACTORY FLOOR
FROM PARLIAMENT TO MEDIA ROAR
FROM PUBLIC VIEW TO PRIVATE SPHERE
UNDERMINE AND INSTILL FEAR
SEXUALIZING KIDS FOR PROFIT
AND SELLING US EMOTIONS
Track Name: You're Fucking Dead
COCCOONED IN THE CERTAINTY OF THE PAST
NOT WHO YOU ARE BUT WHAT YOU WERE

WHEN YOU GET IT IN YOUR HEAD
THAT YOUR BEST DAYS AREN’T AHEAD
YOU’RE FUCKING DEAD

QUOTIDIAN GRIND IT BREAKS YOU DOWN
THE PAST ACTS AS A COMFORTING WOMB

AND ALL THE TIME YOU’RE LIVING YOU DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT FOR
THE SCREEN EMITS A LIGHT BUT YOU DON’T HAVE ONE ANYMORE
A LIFE ON AUTOPILOT, NO HEART BEATS IN YOUR CHEST
YOU’VE GIVEN UP ON LIFE…YOU’RE FUCKING DEAD
Track Name: Friday Night War
ANOTHER FRIDAY, ANOTHER NIGHT OUT
CRAWLING ALL AROUND THE TOWN
SPILL OUT FROM THE CLUBS & BARS
TIME TO GET SOME MORE BATTLESCARS?

I DON’T WANT TO FIGHT IN YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT WAR – I’M A REFUSENIK
I DON’T WANT TO FIGHT IN YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT WAR – I’M A CONCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR

FUCKED BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION
NOW COMES PARANOID AGGRESSION
GET ON SOME POOR BASTARDS’ CASE
STICK A BOTTLE IN THEIR FUCKING FACE

YOU’RE DOWN IN THE CELLS AND YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT
OR YOU’RE IN A & E AND YOU’RE SMASHED TO BITS
AND THE WORST OF IT IS YOU CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT FOR… JUST SOME FRIDAY NIGHT WAR
Track Name: Into the Light
CAUGHT IN A TRAP OF YOUR OWN DESIGN & FED ON A DIET OF LIES
CHURCH, MEDIA & STATE HELP YOU SEAL YOUR OWN FATE & YOU ‘KNOW YOUR PLACE’ FOR LIFE

SHAKE OF THE DARKNESS THAT HOLDS YOU – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT
RESIST ALL THE PAIN THAT HAUNTS YOU – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT

YOU CAN’T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU GOT HERE & NO CLUE HOW TO MAKE YOUR ESCAPE
ALL THOSE PEOPLE YOU KNEW THEY WERE JUST LIKE YOU & YOU DON’T WANT TO SHARE THEIR FATE

REJECT MOST OF WHAT THEY TOLD YOU – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT
WHEN YOU’RE SICK OF ALL THAT CONTROLS YOU – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT

POLITICS? CULTURE? SOME NEW CERTAINTIES? WHEN THE OLD ONES HAVE CRUMBLED TO DUST
MORE DARK AVENUES FOR THE SOUL TO PURSUE, MORE PROMISES RIVEN WITH RUST

WHEN THIS WORLD HOLDS NOTHING FOR YOU – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT
WHEN THE PRICE YOU’RE PAYING IS TOO HIGH – STEP INTO THE LIGHT, INTO THE LIGHT
