Track Name: the streets were never yours
Not your right to decide my path
I will always fight your law

Through a mist of mace and lies
Patrolling down our streets
Punishing our dreams
Batons for swords
Hailing from above

Officer fuck off
The streets aren’t yours

Say you protect our government
But the government was never mine
Your prisons can’t hold us forever
Our ideals will never die
I’ll tell you one more time

Officer fuck off
The streets aren’t yours
Officer fuck off
The streets were never yours
Track Name: håll käft och lyd
den starka överheten
en kraft att bryta ner
ett jävla ok av trista ideal

sitt på sin plats håll käft och nicka snällt
tror inte du ska lyckas stå emot

en känsla av att tryckas ner
En känsla... hål käft och lyd (x2)

den stora massan lyder lätt
det är skönt att slippa tänka
köp det dom vill och alla älskar dig

Sitt inte på din plats och nicka snällt
Ställ dig upp, stå emot och börja kämpa
Track Name: the concern
Her wasted life without any concern

Only one rule in this guilt ridden world
Your life’s value, you’ll earn and spend
This society offers no free ride
But will t be worth it n the end

Her pain for profit
Not her own
A cog in the machine for the company
Her purpose was used
Tossed aside
No wasted concern
From the company

She has a broken body, the final rest
Her bitterness routine, a rage that burn
Her wasted life on the factory floor
Where did it lead, what did she learn

Her pain for profit
Not her own
A cog in the machine for the company
Her purpose was used
Tossed aside
No wasted concern
From the company

All her loyalty was all for nothing
The pressure of life – a death sentence
Her hour has come after all these years
Sacrificed her life for the concern

Will take your life
Track Name: sterile world
So afraid of human contact
The media taught you that
The germs is all around us
It’s a nightmare
When will you wake up?
And realize the truth
We will prevail we will not die!

through it all can't you see it's all just lies
Through it all can't you see
We will survive
Through it all can't you feel in your heart
Through it all can't you feel
We will survive

There is no need to panic
No need to stay inside
Take great care my friend
There are consequences
If we don't pay attention
Then soon we will find
We’ll live in a world
Of fear that's sterile

through it all can't you see it's all just lies
Through it all can't you see
We will survive
Through it all can't you feel in your heart
Through it all can't you feel
We will survive

If we don't pay attention
Then soon we will find
We live in a world
Of rear that’s sterile
When will you wake up
And realize the truth
We will prevail we will not die
Track Name: need this
Every night on the news
The same old thing
Death rape mutilation
But ask yourself

how can you say, while they fight
That we need this
How can you state, while they kill
That we need war

No glory in death
Or bravery
Only pain, you're alone
With your war

how can you say, while they fight
That we need this
How can you state, while they kill
That we need war

how can you say, while they die
That it's necessary
How can you state, while they kill
That we need war
Track Name: sexual warfare
Rape and betrayal in our midst
You not war made this happen

We’ll never go home
Will never feel safe

The true fear is the dark
No shelter no refuge
Enough is never enough
In sexual warfare
Fear of the night
Bodies turned to weapons

We’ll never go home
Will never feel safe

You can take this body
But it will not be me
Will it ever be over
I feel so hollow
Track Name: glorified misery
A destructive scene, fuck!
No wonder it’s all going backwards
Forgetting activism
You’re way too drunk to DIY

Take comfort in your excuses
Take refuge in your whining
Existence that you call punk
All I see’s glorified misery

Lost creativity in a bottle
No good left for you to see
How do you think things will progress
If we never take action

Take comfort in your excuses
Take refuge in your whining
Too blind to see the real issues
Let go of your illusions
Existence that you call punk
All I see is glorified misery
Track Name: döden
Sen till jobbet sista gången - right?
Tar problemen aldrig slut?
Tvättid, skulder, folk ringer, tjatar mer
Jag orkar fan inte jag vill ut

Livet döden, vad är det för skillnad
det tar livet av mig den här stressen
livet döden vad är det för skillnad
pallar inte trycket inte pressen

varje dag samma jävla apati
samhällets krav på min ömma rygg
ett svagt ljus i slutet av tunneln
men år för år mattas det ut

Livet döden, vad är det för skillnad
det tar livet av mig den här stressen
livet döden vad är det för skillnad
pallar inte trycket inte pressen

alltså döden livet vad är det för skillnad
det tar livet av mig den här stressen
livet döden vad är det för skillnad
pallar inte trycket inte pressen
Track Name: farvälfärd
Den här makten förstör våra liv
Tappar hoppet I en brun/blå värld
Är det det här ni kallar välfärd?
Sälja ut och rusta ner

Solidaritet lycka frihet
Snart är all trygghet slut
Snut makt kontroll
Ni ligger mig kallt om hjärtat

Utförsäkrad på löpande band
Papperssamhälle mot värdighet
Är det det här som kallas frihet
Ni följer varje steg som jag tar

Solidaritet lycka frihet
Snart är all trygghet slut
Snut makt kontroll
Ni ligger mig kallt om hjärtat

…Ni ska bort… x2
Track Name: takeover
Patriarchal rulings
About time that we reform
This oppression makes me sick
Be ready to step down, daddy
Sisterhood strengthens our struggle for the revolution
No time like the present
For a takeover

Be ready for a takeover man
No more bowing to a phallic order
Be ready for a takeover men
Changing the system, mind and heart

Molded into shapes
Of slaves to men’s whims
Step out of their shadows
It’s time to step down daddy
This time we dictate
Our own rights and order
No time like the present for a takeover

Be ready for a takeover man
No more bowing to a phallic order
Be ready for a takeover men
Changing the system, mind and heart

This time we dictate
Our own rights and order
No time like the present
For a takeover

Be ready for a takeover man
No more bowing to a phallic order
Be ready for a takeover men
Changing the system, mind and heart
Track Name: corruption of the human mind
You can feel the change
In the wind
It’s turning
War against economy

Strike against capitalism
No life below the bill
Lives are not currency
Conquer your possessions
Make peace with yourself

Don’t let your life rely
On consumption
All property
Corrupts the human mind

Strike against the capitalist
Order
No life below the bill
Ownership is prison
Break free
Conquer your possessions
Make peace
Track Name: what lies ahead
No way
This will last
Hindered by our past mistakes
Stick together to save
Our existence

Will our lives
Go to waste
Tear us down
Until we’re lost

Cease to thrive
Because of greed

Dark water
Lies ahead
This course
Will make us deteriorate
Stick together to save
Our existence

Let our lives
Go to waste
Cease to thrive
Because of greed

Will our eyes
Close in despair
Or Will our hands
Build the era to come?
Track Name: father
Just a little girl
Betrayal all the worse
Innocent to the world
Should remain untouched
Too late to save her now
You say you don't know how
It’s still a crime, she
Should remain untouched

Why don’t you just admit it
Your thought, are vial
Why don’t you just admit it
You’re a right out paedophile

Fatherhood ain't like this
What you do ain't love
Innocent to the world
Should remain untouched
Whatever you think its child abuse
Whatever you say, it's no use
She will be scarred for life
Should remain untouched

Why don’t you just admit it
Your thought, are vial
Why don’t you just admit it
You’re a right out pedophile
Track Name: bete er som folk
Enda bruden på jobbet, ett stort jävla skämt
Det här systemet står mig långt upp i halsen
håll käft och se vad ni har framför er
jag är fan less på det här

Har fan ingen lust att uppfostra vuxna män
Varför kan ni inte bara bete er som folk?

Sexistiska småskämt, men aldrig om mig förstås
för jag är ju nästan som er,
som en i gänget fast en egen kategori
men jag är fan less på det här nu

Har fan ingen lust att uppfostra vuxna män
Varför kan ni inte bara bete er som folk?

ett enda bögskämt till och jag spyr
ett enda brudskämt, jag kommer fan explodera

Har fan ingen lust att uppfostra vuxna män
varför kan ni inte bara bete er som folk
bete er som folk!
Track Name: paradies
All crashing to pieces
Around you there’s nothing left
Solidarity is torn apart
Compassion is a dying art

When did we forget our dreams
Our dreams of paradise
When did ideology become the beginning
Of our demise

Try to live what you’re preaching
Change the society around you
To fight means nothing
…If you never do

When did we forget our dreams
Our dreams of paradise
When did ideology become the beginning
Of our demise

Vanity tears us apart
Empathy is salvation
In global… crisis

When did we forget our dreams
Our dreams of paradise
When did ideology become the beginning
Of our demise
Track Name: war within us
It’s your own struggle
You feel torn, between
Easy way, look the other way

When the enemy is yourself
Knows your weaknesses
… You fight a losing battle

Nefarious and cunning
Retreat, defeat
Who will be the victor?
You or yourself?

When the enemy is yourself
Knows your weaknesses
… You fight a losing battle

You will never see the day I stop defeating myself
No fucking way
