Track Name: Madness on the Streets
Here come the riot cops
Faceless clones in black
Tasers, clubs, and pepper spray
And rifles on their backs

Mindless fucking footsoldiers
Following commands
Foaming at the mouth
To get some blood upon their hands

Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets

The angry mob is on the march
Ready to attack
Taken your shit long enough
They're here to give it back

Molotovs, burning cars
Stones and shattered glass
Madness on the streets tonight
You better watch your back

Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets

Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
Madness on the streets
It’s fucking madness on the streets
Track Name: Same Old Story
When I look back on all the nights
Drinking at the bar 'til they turn on the lights
My vision blurred from finished pints
Looking for some last call comfort to get me through the night

And it's wake up, go to work, drink, repeat
Every day, every week
Feeling like there's nothing more to me

Same old faces
Same old songs
Same old story on and on
Time ticks away
'Til I've lost count of the days
But my memories never fade

So many friends have come and gone
I've lost track of the ones who said so long
Years pass by and nothing new to show
This is my way of life
This is all I know

And it's wake up, go to work, drink, repeat
Every day, every week
Dreaming of the way it used to be
"Cause I miss those

Same old faces
Same old songs
Same old story on and on
Time ticks away
'Til I've lost count of the days
But my memories never fade
Track Name: Got Me Wrong
You talk so tough
But don't wanna back it up
Who the fuck are you anyway?
No one seems to know
I asked around when you said you're from my town
But no one even knows your name

So I'll explain this to you once
You've got me wrong so listen up
You think you're one of us?
You'll never earn our trust
Consider yourself warned

When I see you on the street
You'll be picking up your teeth
I don't know who the fuck you think you are

Duck next time you see me
You better watch your back
You asked for this, my fuse is lit
You struck the fucking match
We don't have to like each other
You should have shown respect
So now I've gotta pull your card

When I see you on the street
You'll be picking up your teeth
I don't know who the fuck you think you are
Track Name: Stand Up
You knew that they were lying
When they said that you could be anything
You weren't fooled
Everybody's got their place
At the top there's only so much room
But not for you

They told you "Son, just keep your head down
Do what they tell you to
Somebody's gotta take their shit
It might as well be you"

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone

And if they can, they'll take all your time
As if your life is something that you owe
Something they own
Your dignity's been purchased
As a means for them to buy another home
Living a life you'll never know
You're just trying to keep the lights on
They're drowning in cash
So take that dirty uniform
And shove it up their ass

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone


I will not bend, I will not break
I won't give in
No not to you

I will not bend, I will not break
I won't give in
No not to you

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone
Track Name: Living Wage
Grandpa was a laborer
Working with his hands
Supporting his wife and family
An honest working man
He rose before the sun
And he came home late at night
He worked until the day
That the whiskey took his life

25 years later
I'm working just like him
Except that I need two jobs now
Just to pay the rent
No wife, no kid, no student loan
Just everyday expense
When I get my hard-earned pay
It's already spent

I want my living wage
I want my living wage
I want my living wage
A hard days work for a hard days pay
I want my living wage

I went to the union hall
To get up on the list
They said we ain't got no work this week
And i'm starting to get pissed
I ain't been paid in three weeks
I can't buy no cigarettes
And I can't even drive to work
Because the car's been repossessed

I want my living wage
I want my living wage
A hard days work for a hard days pay
I want my living wage

I want my living wage
I want my living wage
A hard days work for a hard days pay
I want my living wage


I want my living wage (That I’m Owed)
I want my living wage (That You Stole)
A hard days work for a hard days pay
I want my living wage

I want my living wage (I’m sick of being broke)
I want my living wage (This jobs a fuckin joke)
A hard days work for a hard days pay
I want my living wage
