01. Love ... Hate

Lyrics by Rind, Arnett
In a world so big and cold you seem so all alone then someone enters
your life and makes it all seem right sometimes things do change love
turns to bitter rage and you say "Never again" but emotions always
mend
It's the root of all disharmony but it's the need to feel complete it's a
physical attraction a chemical reaction a walking contradiction a push,
pull affliction it's a love...hate relationship
You can see it in our band we're all so different every solution we
come to starts with an argument but through adversity the music's in our
heart we'll stay together you can't tear us apart
It's the root of all disharmony but it's the need to feel complete it's a
physical attraction a chemical reaction a walking contradiction a push,
pull affliction it's a love...hate relationship
Love...hate is it one in the same I can't differentiate between love and
hate love...hate is it one in the same I can't differentiate between love
and hate I hate to love, I love to hate you love and hate is it one in the
same love...hate
We always take for granted the one's that love we think they'll always
be there and we treat them as such but if we really make an effort to
show them that we care our love will shine through and the hate will
disappear
It's the root of all disharmony but it's the need to feel complete it's a
physical attraction a chemical reaction a walking contradiction a push,
pull affliction it's a love...hate relationship


02. The American Way

Lyrics by Rind, Arnett
Truth and honor faith and pride all convictions surely died honesties
time has passed time for lies is here at last truth is false I'm so fed up
how did we come to be so fucked hate fear pain death all our country
has got left
Talk to children hear them say daddy left again today brother steals and
mommy lies future lost before their eyes the sun was lost behind the
clouds they rapped it up and blacked it out acid rain fell today it came
and washed our hopes away
This was once the land of dreams now these dreams have turned to
greed in the midst of all this wealth the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy no one said that freedom's free lady liberty rots
away no truth, no justice the American way
Don't look past your t.v. all of us are what you see a looking glass into
our lives what we watch is what we buy priorities are out of whack
who is next to stab our back doesn't it make you mad to have lost all that
we've had
This was once the land of dreams now these dreams have turned to
greed in the midst of all this wealth the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy no one said that freedom's free lady liberty rots
away no truth, no justice the American way
Doesn't it fill you with disgust that there's no one left to trust is this
happening is this real my body numb I cannot feel are you happy are you
sad are emotions a thing of the past I have no tears I cannot cry no one
mourns for a world that's died
This was once the land of dreams now these dreams have turned to
greed in the midst of all this wealth the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy no one said that freedom's free lady liberty rots
away no truth, no justice the American way


03. The Way It Is

Lyrics by Phil Rind
We knew your reputation we hoped that things could be different but
you just proved us wrong and now you're up to your same old tricks I
guess we learned a lesson that people don't change overnight things will
work out well with a little hard work it'll be alright
How could we be so foolish to rush head first, without a thought I guess
it goes to show if your unprepared you will be caught but now we've
learned a lesson a lesson which we won't forget with our newfound
wisdom things'll work out in the end
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
reality
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
reality
You seemed so sincere we'd work together it'd be lot's of fun but all
you saw was money it's not the issue 'til the music's done to you it's
doing business to us it's doing what we love we'll just do our thing we
won't give in for a buck
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
reality
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
reality
Like a soul attaining heaven we must ascend to greater heights got to
make a change got to make a change, the time is right now I wish you
well and thank you for what you've done for me to quote you "Mr.
Businessman" there's things in life that aren't free
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
reality
This is the way it is not how things should be this is the way it is this is
Reality


04. Crimes Against Humanity

Lyrics by Phil Rind
Toxins, pollutants and poisonous gasses without notice take their toll on
the masses air becomes thicker than the water we drink people unaware
of the spread of disease smoke fills the sky and the sun disappears rain
from above is like acid filled tears the fragile balance of sky and earth
has been altered forever harmony disturbed
Towering temples of modernization megatropolis monument to
civilization pollution and waste is direct indication to the growing
problem of the world's situation smoke fills the sky the sun disappears
rain from above is like acid filled tears the fragile balance of sky and
earth has been altered forever harmony disturbed
What will it take to make us see these are crimes against humanity not
only you, not only me but even our future society these are crimes against
humanity
Pain and suffering are what can be found violence and hatred are what
abound building the weapons that we can't use can't we see they have
only one use we need more compassion not more war planes are we so
blind uncaring insane brought into this world with nothing and with
nothing we're destined to depart
What will it take to make us see these are crimes against humanity not
only you, not only me but even our future society these are crimes against
humanity
Crimes against humanity


05. State Of Emergency

Lyrics by Phil Rind
Jailed and beaten left to die political prisoners of apartheid youth of the
nation violently oppressed in the quest for freedom thousands dead
How can we let this be in their country they must be free when will
segration end when will the masses be free again
I can't concieve of this injustice I can't believe it's going on white man's
law is held supreme black man have no rights at all
How can we let this be in their country they must be free when will
segration end when will the masses be free again
In this age let's have harmony all people can be free this injustice must
now end the masses will be free again
How can we let this be in their country they must be free when will
segration end when will the masses be free again


06. Who's To Blame

Lyrics by Phil Rind
Jonny can you hear me turn that music down You're making too much
noise I mean it do it now all that stuff is evil Ozzy, Judas Priest there's
backwards messages in that stuff that leads you to the beast
Jonny don't you hear me open up that door I've been calling you for hours
I won't say it anymore just wait until your dad gets home and sees what
you have done kicked out of school you've got no job you're a useless
delinquent bum oh my god it's Jonny hanging by his neck all those metal
albums have led him to his death
Now it's time for parents to open ears and listen maybe it's too late to see
what you've been missing music is no cause of death it's you that
suffocates if you had opened your eyes and ears you'd see just who's to
blame
Who's to be responsible for a life that's gone off track who's the one who
must be there to see it gets put back where were you to hear the cries of a
person in need were you there to see the signs or were you too busy
Now it's time for parents to open ears and listen maybe it's too late to see
what you've been missing music is no cause of death it's you that
suffocates if you had opened your eyes and ears you'd see just who's to
blame
Who's to be responsible for a life that's gone off track who's the one who
must be there to see it gets put back where were you to hear the cries of a
person in need were you there to see the signs or were you too busy
Who's the cause, who's the blame for a life that's not worth living is it
parents, family who take without giving so next time that you close your
eyes and choose to shift the blame remember you can save a life so really
who's to blame?!


07. I Don't Know

Lyrics by Phil Rind
I don't know what you think I don't know what you want me to be I don't
know how you want me to act I've fallen into another trap
I don't know what you want me to be I can't change I can only be me I
won't fit into your classifications I won't be tagged by restricting labels
I can't fit into your classifications a nice little package for media
conversation I don't know what you want I won't change or play a part
I don't know what you want me to be I can't change I can only be me I
won't fit into your classifications I won't be tagged by restricting labels
I don't know what you think I don't know what you want me to be I don't
know how you want me to act I've fallen into another trap
I don't know what you want me to be I can't change I can only be me I
won't fit into your classifications I won't be tagged by restricting labels


08. 31 Flavors

Lyrics by Rind, Arnett
Vanilla is smooth chocolate is kickin' strawberry is sweet all deserve a
hearty lickin' have em all three scoops piled high variety is the spice of
life
Well you can have soft serve and hard sugar cones root beer floats or my
banana split do you like nuts or some sticky whip creme come lick it off
and be my dairy queen
I love the Chilis freaky, uplift, mother's milk Faith No More Mike
Patton's voice is smooth as silk Metallica's music makes me want to rage
Sting's lyrics have something to say Jimi Hendrix plays guitar like a no
one else Black Sabbath Ozzy's voice is sick as hell Prince, Fishbone,
NWA these are the things that I like to play
Mr. Bungle is so very cool so don't be an ignorant fool there's so much
music for you to choose so don't just be a metal dude it's cool fool
