Track Name: Government Cause
Government Cause

Sunday morning in the USA
Nothing to do so the people pray
Reagan and Russia are in a fight
And no one knows who’s wrong or right
Well fuck you Reagan and Fuck you Russia
Both you and your political lies
Has cost us too much too many lives

I look out the window
Surprised what I saw
People dying for government cause

I’m going to make you see
I’m going to kill you before you kill me
I can’t believe the things you’ve done
Dress them up and give them a gun
Oppress us all, well it’s not funny
Well screw you and your dirty money
Scam us all and rape the land
See Reagan, see Reagan your such a man

I look out the window
Surprised what I saw
People dying for government cause
Track Name: From The Day We Are Born
From The Day We Are Born

Discrimination based on anything
The suffering from the pain it brings
People seldom understand
It’s dictated by society’s hands
We learn from the day we are born
Who to like, who to scorn

Racism sucks there is no reason why
So many suffer an insidious lie
The melting pot is one big joke
Don’t believe the lies we have been told

Immerse yourself in the knowledge to be found
Open your eyes man it’s all around
If you quest knowledge there is much to be read
Read a book or something instead
(Malcolm X, Stokley Carmichael, Martin Luther King)
Racism sucks there is no reason why
So many suffer an insidious lie
The melting pot is one big joke
Don’t believe the lies we have been told

How can whites speak for others when the oppressor is us
We must put aside our fucking biases and look with fresh eyes
Then when we see the cultures eyes through its own eyes
We learn how much we were fucking blind, blinded by ignorance

(How can we overcome the prejudice that plagues us,
We must put aside out biases and look with fresh eyes
Submerse ourselves into their cultures eyes
When we open our eyes we open our mind
Then we see how much we were blind)

Our racism comes from our greed
Satisfied by our need
Simple reasons for the complex
Hang time… another death
It’s easier to pass the blame
Just a rook in society’s game

Discrimination based on anything
The suffering from the pain it brings
People seldom understand
It’s dictated by society’s hands
Track Name: Pole Position
Pole Position

Pole position it’s you and me
Pole Position we’re wild and free
Around the corner, around the bend
You are now my only friend

I love you
Until we are through

Space Invaders bust the move
Playing asteroids gotta groove
I am now the high scorer
Give me a quarter, give me a quarter!
Track Name: Sun Turned Gray
Sun Turned Gray

Turn cold, where your body lies
Turn fast, with the wolves at bay
Everything is not ok
in this dark, desolate, darkened day

Turn cold, where your body lies
Turn fast, with the wolves at bay
Everything is not ok
in this dark, desolate, bloody day

Sun turned gray...

Why did you do it Jason Gray
Now your dead, Sun turned gray
Everything is not ok
Why did you do it
Sun turned gray
In what were you so afraid,
Could you not make the grade?
Track Name: Disinfect the Ignorance
Disinfect the Ignorance

An ignorant germ flows through your veins
Destroying your mind, destroying your brain
Corrupting the way you think about life
Can’t tell the difference between what is wrong or right

Disinfect the ignorance

Germs in disguise, killings the price
Poor animals die, I ask why
Your fucked up mind, killings the price
I don’t understand taking an animal’s life

Animals dying vivisection
Find a cure for a disease we created
Electroshock… probing the brain
Destroying the body, life full of pain

Stop Vivisection

Animals dying vivisection
Find a cure for a disease we created
Electroshock… probing the brain
Destroying the body, life full of pain

Stop vivisection

An ignorant germ flows through your veins
Destroying your mind, destroying your brain
Corrupting the way you think about life
Can’t tell the difference between what is wrong or right


Germs in disguise, killings the price
Poor animals die!

Animal rights!

Set those animals free!
Track Name: Uncle Sam
Uncle Sam

They teach you to kill, fighting for a cause
Killing people you don’t know, who writes the fucking laws
Say that they will pay you to die for your country
But if you die before you get paid, guess who spends the money
So listen here people, fight the government scam
Fight against the racists including Uncle Sam

Political corruption sends you off to die
Americans are God sent off to crucify
Pump me full of methadrine to take away the pain
Send me home a junkie to the good ole USA
Playing with the local accepting their disease
Take it home to your wife get birth deformities

Uncle Sam it’s time to die
What’s the use of being alive
Point your finger at the lower class
We will take that finger and stick it up your ass
Track Name: Fade Away
Fade Away

Our brother is down for life you see
To pay for his crime in misery
If you think life is so great and so pretty
Then you get slapped hard by reality

Our friendship’s the most important thing
This bullshit won’t tear us apart
The presence of you is missed
But you’ll always be in our hearts
Freedom’s soon we hope and pray
Together again we’ll jam someday
The times we’ve shared are in the past today
But our love for you won’t fade away

Please can’t you see the pain I’ve gone through
The hole burning through my soul from the loss of a friend
You continue to drown your life not caring of thinking twice
Whacking your brain so far your mind starts to bend
You’ve seemed to forget so fast the horror that lies in the past
Please sin, I’m all out of tears so when will it end
Track Name: Bummer
Bummer

Wait… I think I saw something heard something move something

Sitting on your ass, drop a hit smoke some grass
Put your lips up to that bong
pull one hit but don’t you cough
The trip is starting to hit me know
I should have fixed a mushy shake
But it’s too late, my minds in bliss

Trooping around I can’t sit down, my minds in bliss
Sounds around me, nothing is around, my minds in bliss
I’m lost in my mind for days on end, my minds in bliss
Trooping around I can’t sit down, my minds in bliss

A trail in the forest leads my mind
The trail is open to the sky
The journey through my mind is dark
The trip and reality seem worlds apart
The madness has come and seen our fears
Open the door reality is near
The journey through my mind is dark
The trip and reality seem worlds apart
Track Name: Nuclear Death
Nuclear Death

Feel the weapons breath
Radiation test
Prepare for nuclear death

Bombs exploding
People hoping
Atomic waste
Will end our haste
Bloodlines dropping
People starving
Mushroom cloud
Speak right now

Blood flowing
People hoping
Atomic waste
To end our haste
Bombs dropping
Lifelines stopping
Mushroom clouds
We are dead now

Smell the burning flesh
Nothing is left
Result of nuclear death

Bombs exploding
People hoping
Atomic waste
Will end our haste
Bloodlines dropping
People starving
Mushroom cloud
Speak right now

Blood flowing
People hoping
Atomic waste
To end our haste
Bombs dropping
Lifelines stopping
Mushroom clouds
We are dead now
Track Name: U.S. Intervention
U.S. Intervention

Time has come to die in the sand
Sign up and die in a foreign land
U.S. Intervention to maintain peace
Say that it is in the name of democracy
But it is the economy and so much more
Absolute control and times are such a bore
U.S. Intervention feed me your lies
Whether oil or greed, that is why we die

Fight, Fight
Time to die
Make us suffer
Your lies

U.S. intervention
The third world suffers...
From your long arm.
Remember back,
to Vietnam.
U.S. Intervention
Remember back
U.S. Intervention
All the pain
It's all the same

U.S. Intervention
Track Name: Reagan Fuck Off
Reagan Fuck Off

The government gets richer everyday
The steal your money and throw it away
Reagan Fuck Off

As you give money to charity
The government takes it as prosperity
Reagan Fuck Off

Social Security is one big joke
While the rich get richer and the poor’s stomachs bloat
Reagan Fuck Off

Nancy is just a skinny wench
All she does is want to stay rich
Reagan Fuck Off
Track Name: Cowboy Song
Cowboy Song

Old MacDonald sittin’ on a bench
Fuck me Mary Lou
He’s beating his meat with a monkey wrench
Fuck me Mary Lou
Well the wrench got hot burned his balls
Pissed all over his overalls
Fuck me Mary Lou
Track Name: Cooking the Chili
Cooking the Chili

Thinking in the rain
Suffering sitting in pain
The emotions that I grope for
Too much to hope for

But the clear azure skies
I’m waiting for the clear azure skies
Life goes on and thus my thoughts
Trying to tame he flood that I have wrought

Fear, fear of miscommunicating
I’m scared of leaving
These emotions that I grope for
Too much to hope for

But the clear azure skies
I’m waiting for the clear azure skies
Life goes on and thus my thoughts
Trying to tame he flood that I have wrought

No more petty love
No more petty hate
No more petty assholes
No more pettiness
No more pain

Tears streak across my cheek and I hear “why ask why?”
I don’t know why
Maybe it’s because I care
I’m tired of seeing us lie
I’m tired of seeing us die
I’m tired of the written lie
Selfish beer
Selfish tears
Selfish love
Selfish hate
Selfish mind
Open your mind
Track Name: Mush Mosh
Mush Mosh
Snowboarding down the hill
I hope I don’t take a spill
Getting air, getting air!

Snowboarding down the hill
With Paul what a thrill
Frontside air, crail air
Track Name: Taco Heads Suck
Taco Heads Suck

Bar room brawl you knucklehead
All that drinking’s gone to your head
Standing proud, standing tall
I’ll put your ass tight through the wall

Taco Heads Suck
