Lyrics


Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like a born dead
Free heroin shots for those who never beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

The only free choice is refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicidal pain
Cigarettes a life-line, it's safety in death
Choking on the billboards, advertised and fed

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence
You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence

Album Quote


"The tragedy of it is that nobody sees the look of desperation on my face. Thousands and thousands of us, and we're passing one another without a look of recognition" - Henry Miller

Lyrics


Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from sharp neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like a born dead
Free heroin shots for those who will no longer beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

The only free choice is the refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicidal comforting
Cigarette death, it's suckling
Choked on the same lines that we've all said

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say

00:15 - "So the concept is this, basically. We're going to walk on this nation. We're going to walk on this racist power structure and we're going to say to the whole damn government stick 'em up, motherfucker this is a hold up. We come for what's ours" - Bobby Seale
