Track Name: NO ONE CAN BREATHE
Smog, is burning my lungs, the air is black, no turning back
Smoke, fills the cities, it clouds the streets, no one can breathe
Fire, burns the forest, down go the trees, the earth it bleeds
Waste, in the oceans, and in the seas, the fish can’t breathe
Poison
Destroys us
Black air
Death’s stare
Blood, coughing and retching, gasping for air, too late to care
Gone, are the gardens, gone are the bees, how will we feed?
No one can breathe – yet we still plough forwards
We're stoking our Cheynes – action is rare
No one can breathe – fighting against ourselves
We're stoking our Cheynes – death in the air
Time, was on our side, it was wasted, we just quit
Fate, always against us, human nature, there is no cure
WARNINGS WERE THERE
NOBODY CARED
PRIORITIES
NOW WE CAN’T BREATHE
Destined for failure
Earth's final traitor.
Track Name: THEY'RE WATCHING OUT FOR YOU
Hiding in the undergrowth
From the pricks in the red coats
Wondering what I have done wrong
They killed my family
Why can’t they leave us be?
I can’t keep running any more
The sabs are there for you
They’re watching out for you
They’re always on your side
Your rights won’t be denied
HUNT SCUM – FUCK YOU!
HUNT SCUM – WANKERS
Who are those on horseback?
Those hounds are on my track
They’ll catch my scent then I’m done
Who are those hiding my scent?
Following the ones in red
They’re giving me a fighting chance
The sabs are there for you
They’re watching out for you
They’re always on your side
Your rights won’t be denied
Track Name: WHO'S TO BLAME?
WE MIGHT BE THE ONES THAT CUT DOWN THE TREES
BUT IT’S NOT OUR FAULT THE EARTH’S ON ITS KNEES
DECENT PAY IS ALL THAT WE WANT
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WORLD IS NOT OUR FAULT
A JOB IS A JOB IN THIS CRUEL WORLD
THE REPERCUSSIONS NOT OUR CONCERN
BLAME THE ONES THAT PAY OUR WAGE
BLAME THE ONES WITH THE KEY TO THE CAGE
WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME ME IT’S JUST EMPLOYMENT
WHO’S TO BLAME? IT’S PLAIN TO SEE WE ARE A SERVICE
WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME US, WE ONLY GOVERN
WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME ME, IT’S FOR MY FAMILY

IT’S NOT OUR FAULT, I PAY THEM WELL
IF WE DON’T DO IT, SOMEONE ELSE WILL
OUR COMPANY IS NOT TO BLAME
WE’RE JUST A VICTIM OF FINANCIAL GAMES
DON’T BLAME US, OUR PEOPLE ARE POOR
THIS GOVERNMENT’S BETTER THAN THE ONE BEFORE
WE ONLY DO IT TO HELP THEIR LIVES
IT’S NOT OUR FAULT, THEY ARE NOT OUR CRIMES
Track Name: FORGOTTEN
Is this what we wanna see?
People dying in poverty
No one caring about their lives
So much unchecked genocide
Streets filled with invisible people, see no evil, hear no evil
Developed nations with shacks for houses, no help given, could do without them
How many more forgotten people, will die before we take action?
I can’t accept that we need food banks, so much waste, food thrown as trash
How come we can’t help a refugee? Bailing banks out is what we need
Celeb weddings make the newspapers, wars abroad don’t concern the nation
More concerned with some fucking bake off, than the fact that people are killed off
Please don’t show us the horrors of war
Fashion gossip is what I paid for
No need to know about Syria, or the spread of diphtheria
Let’s all get on with our lives, couldn’t help even if I tried
Hunger, in this day is just evil, we must be better people
Act before it is too late. Help!
Greed is, much worse than free movement
Don’t pretend you’re above it, it could happen to you too. Help!
Track Name: EXCUSE TO KILL
Violent and mean
Your thinking is obscene
Fantasies of causing pain
You say it's legit
Society asked for it
What the hell goes through your brain?
Religious wars
Vermin killing course
Why would you choose to do that?
Not justified
No being needs to die
Pretending that there is just cause
Screaming in pain
Your actions to blame
Claiming it's traditional
Part of the game
To pretend you are sane
Your choices define who you are
Excuse to kill - fox hunter or matador
Abuse at will - thinking you're special
Excuse to kill - living life by taking life
Abuse at will - psychopathic drones
Being a doctor or a cleaner
Too boring for you
No excuse to make them suffer
No anguish to view
Content with brutal life choices
Death is your desire
Killing for your pure satisfaction
I question how you're wired
WRONG IN THE HEAD
ENJOYING DEATH
PRETENDING YOU’RE GOOD
THIRSTING FOR BLOOD
Track Name: WHAT IS THIS PLACE? (NOT ON YOUR OWN)
Looking at the newspaper, again you feel despair
You question if this mental world can ever be repaired
Another unjust law upheld, another species dies
Wondering how to function, don’t others empathise?
Feeling like an alien, lost in a faceless crowd
Every breath is an effort, but others seem so proud
Can’t understand the world, does anybody care?
So few speak up or act, whilst most others just stare?
NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X2)
A friend says to ban dog meat, whilst eating bacon baps
Raising for child charities; kids made their clothes and bags!
Others mock your life choices, saying that you’re weird
You try to fit in anyway, holding back your tears
You’ve never eaten at Nando’s, or watched the X-factor
Yet somehow you’re a “freak”, they ask why it matters
What do you eat? How do you live? Do you have fun?
You try to think where to begin, but you just want to run
NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X4)
You wake up some mornings – fighting back those images
The ones that changed your soul – your insides feel like a black hole
Changed forever more – can’t understand how you lived before
Or when others will see – the world is not what it’s meant to be
What is this place? – Why does that meal still have a face?
Words fall on your ears – but the meaning seems to disappear
Is it really important? – You cannot see the significance
It’s hard to walk the line – but still you say that you‘re “just fine”
NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X6)
Track Name: WAGE SLAVES
Mind and soul bound to a desk
Or on shop floors, no time for rest
All day you must answer the phone
Frowned upon when you go home
Cleaning streets and sweeping floors
To buy some clothes, and food of course
You work all day, then sleep at night
Or the reverse, there’s no respite
WAGE FUCKING SLAVES - ALL OF US ARE WAGE SLAVES (x4) WAGES MAKE US BEHAVE
Sometimes you dream about work
It’s enough to make you berserk
You work some more, for overtime
You need the cash, to live your life
MPs would have us work to death
Retirement age at your last breath
Life reduced to bills and fees
Economic slavery
Do not live your whole life just for money
Do things that fell right to you, or make you happy
Break away from that mental state
See yourself more than just your wage
WE’RE FUCKING WAGE SLAVES!
Track Name: NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES
So-called borders I can’t see
They say they travel illegally
Movement logged and quantified
Countless refugees have died
What you got? What you need?
All they’ve got, you don’t need
Are they legal? Do they bleed?
They’re humans like us
NO – NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES (X4)
People treated like they are goods
Their dignity is removed
No thought for their basic rights
It’s our wars that caused their plight
They’re crossed off
And sent back
Another disappearing act
Take action while we can
Before we lose our humanity
NO – NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES (X8)
Track Name: HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY
THEY SAY IT’S TIME TO MAKE SOME SAVINGS
TIME FOR AUSTERITY
WE NEED TO MAKE SOME CUTBACKS
SO WE CAN AFFORD TO FEED
CUTS ON PUBLIC SPENDING
AND ON BENEFITS
CUTS FOR THE DISABLED
AND THE ELDERLY
BUT IT MEANS NOTHING
IT’S JUST PEANUTS
THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG
CORPORATIONS DUCKING OUT
WHILST THE MASSES PAY THEIR DUES
MAKING ALL THE WRONG CHANGES
CUTS THAT DON’T BELONG
AVERAGE PEOPLE SUFFER
THE POWERFUL; THEY STAY STRONG
THE POWERFUL; THEY STAY STRONG
HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY
HOW MUCH CAN BE SAVED?
HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY
WHILE CORPORATE TAX IS WAVED
HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY
POOR NATION’S CHILDREN STARVE
HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY
WELL HUMANITY IS HALVED
IT’S HALVED
IT’S HALVED
HUMANITY IS HALVED
THE NHS IN DOWNWARD SPIRAL
THEY SAY IT CAN’T BE HELPED
THEY CAN’T AFFORD REGENERATION
OR TO SAVE THE GREEN BELT
NO CASH FOR YOUTH CENTRES
LESS FOR THE COMMUNITIES
LESS FOR THE DISABLED
IT’S A FUCKED UP ECONOMY
BUT THE ELITE FEW ARE KEPT AFLOAT
PROTECTED BY RICH PEERS
MINISTERS WITH ADDED PERKS
OUR WORDS FALL ON DEAF EARS
NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE AT ALL
AT LEAST THE ONES THAT COUNT
MPS TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES
KEEPING OTHERS DOWN
KEEPING OTHERS DOWN
Track Name: STUPID HOMOPHOBE
Ours in a world racked with pain
All this intolerance, and endless strain
On its apex species - humanity
The only beast to judge on sexuality
One that's constant is the human need for love
Wankers
Laughable to think it's scorned from above
Wankers
Followers of hate when dead are no loss
Wankers
If Jesus was a homophobe he earned his cross
Wankers
STUPID PRICK
MINDLESS HOMOPHOBE
JUST WAKE UP!
WHY SO AFRAID?
WHY YOU SO UPSET?
YOUR OPINIONS SUCK
Every word from your mouth
Wankers
Reeks of shit, and self-doubt
Wankers
Faith is love, and hate is fear
Wankers
Disown their dying house before they bring it near
Wankers
Followers of hate when dead are no loss
If Jesus was a homophobe he earned his cross
Track Name: PIT BULLSHIT
IMAGINE BEING KILLED FOR NOTHING MORE THAN BEING BORN INTO THE WORLD,
DOOMED FROM DAY ONE BASED ON YOUR BREED, THESE LAWS ARE JUST ABSURD.
LENNOX IS NOT THE ONLY ONE, THERE’S MANY MORE WHO’VE DIED,
KILLED BECAUSE OF BODY SIZE, NO CHANCE TO LIVE THEIR LIVES.
JUDGEMENTS BASED ON HOW THEY LOOK AND ON THEIR MEASUREMENTS,
NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY’VE DONE, OR ANY PAST EVENTS.
DONE NOTHING WRONG, BUT NO ONE CARES, BEING PIT BULL IS THEIR CRIME,
DEEMED DANGEROUS WITHOUT GOOD CAUSE, THERE’S NO ESCAPE THIS TIME.

THIS CAN’T BE RIGHT, SURELY NOT; THE POOR DOG’S DONE NO WRONG,
NO BITES, NO THREATS, NOBODY HURT, BUT THEY SAY THEY DON’T BELONG.
IT’S MURDER BASED ON TYPE OF BREED, A HOLOCAUST FOR DOGS,
THEY COULD BE THE NICEST DOG ALIVE, BUT THEY STILL CAN’T BEAT THE ODDS.
THEIR FATE IS SEALED BY PREJUDICE, WHICH LEADS TO MINDLESS DEATH,
SURELY THIS IS NONSENSE, WHY CAN’T WE USE OUR HEADS?
IT MAKES NO SENSE TO PUNISH THOSE FOR SIMPLY BEING ALIVE,
CHANGE THIS LAW, IT’S BARBARIC, WE CANNOT SYMPATHISE.

MINDLESS LAWS
DON’T IGNORE
THINK AGAIN
STOP THE DEATH
BE HUMANE
NOT INSANE
SCRAP THE LAW
WE IMPLORE!
Track Name: THEY ARE THE DRONES
Dispatched to fight a war overseas
Programmed orders in their brains
Asks no questions, obeys all orders
No need to think what is humane
Not all wars are fought in defence
The Iraq war showed them this
But drones on hand when they’re needed
Prepared to kill when we wish it
They are the drones, on conflict they feed
War is a force that gives them meaning
An inner need resides within them
Anger rising from within
Confused with peace, they wonder blindly
Searching for their next victims
Glamorised by film and TV
War can win many awards
Celebrations for victories
Nothing learned from wars before
Track Name: BASTARD SPECIES
THEY INFECT THE WHOLE PLANET
LIKE A VIRUS, THEY SPREAD DISEASE
NOTHING IS SACRED, POWER IN MIND
FIGHTING THEIR WARS, KILLING IS FINE
NO HUMANITY, IT’S JUST A MYTH
CRUELTY IS WHAT LIES WITHIN
KILLING FOR GODS, WAR FOR MONEY
CRUELTY CONSIDERED FUNNY
BASTARD - BASTARD SPECIES
PARASITES WEARING BUSINESS SUITS
PUPPET LEADERS HAVE NO USE
A WORLD WHERE SLAVERY STILL EXISTS
A WORLD WHERE RACISM STILL PERSISTS
IT’S CLAIMED THAT ANIMALS HAVE NO SOUL
BUT IT’S US THAT DRAG THEM FROM THEIR HOMES
ABUSED IN ZOOS, FOR KICKS, FOR LAUGHS
SEALS ARE CLUBBED, THEIR HEADS ARE BASHED
CLAIMING THAT WE'RE INTELLIGENT
OUR ACTIONS MAKE THIS CLAIM ABSURD
TO SELF-DESTRUCT, THAT’S WHO WE ARE
WE'LL NEVER ADMIT THAT WE'VE GONE TOO FAR
VERMIN ROAMING THE HIGHER GROUND
EARTH DESTROYED, AND YET WE REMAIN PROUD
HUMANS THINK THEY RULE THE EARTH
PLAGUE OF THE WORLD - A RETCHED CURSE
BASTARD - BASTARD SPECIES
