Track Name: Neoliberal Doctrine
Doctrine of greed, reward the worst instinct,
Never each to their need, we all go extinct,
Liars with graphs, impoverish the weak,
Can you ask or can you only bleed?
A continent ruined by ideology,
Never so much as an apology,
Talk up the dangers of communism,
Ignore every last capitalist gulag or prison.

(Chorus)
Capitalism in decay, burns all you love,
Standing at the edge of a cliff, just one shove,
Democracy corroded, rotten to it's core,
Supremacy of classes written into law

Economics of those who lack empathy,
You say how it is is how it's meant to be,
You lack vision, purpose or hope,
Without one another, how would we even cope,
Externalities is a vulgar slur,
You believe the lies in between all the words,
Randian fantasy fuelled by right wing nuts,
Hate to break it to you bro, but Friedman fucking sucks.

(Chorus)

Private sector lords, defund the public purse,
Careful not to die, they'll charge you for the hearse,
Money laden noose, goes around your throat,
Your health care's gone, just like your last hope,
Vulgar Marxists, waging their class war,
Repress the workers, fuck what they ask for,
Keep the public under private control,
Soon they'll own everything, even your soul
Track Name: A Dying Planet
(Chorus)
A dying fucking planet is just what we need,
Continue digging up the remnants of dinosaurs,
Can hardly even breathe gasping for my last breath,
Keep consuming, watching TV, here we are: human death

Towns hit by the sea,
They cower in fear,
Roads cut off by floods,
We, we are so fucked,
Storms rain down on me,
Struck down by lightning,
Heat oppressing us all,
Watch our climate fall

(Chorus)

Rich bastards undone,
Fight for your own earth,
Stand and just oppose,
We have nothing to lose,
Blood leaks onto coal,
Death is linked to the oil,
Heat oppressing us all,
Watch our climate fall

(Chorus)
Track Name: Drug War Casualty
Raids left marks on your home,
Will you ever recover?
Shot your dog right in the head,
All over an ounce of cannabis,
How can we stand this state of affairs?
How can we continue on?

(Chorus)
A game of control,
Many on parole,
Have we lost our souls,
Time to end this damn drug war
What you'll find,
Is that in time,
Legalizing's fine,
Time to end this damn drug war,
It's my mission,
Our decision,
Prison abolition,
Time to end this damn drug war.

Prison industrial complex,
New wave of modern slavery,
Targeting people of colour,
Racist since the beginning,
They don't care about safety,
They want to control your minds

(Chorus)
Track Name: Civil Obedience
Think for yourself,
Obey not the rich,
Stand up and fight,
Nothing left to lose,
The good do nothing,
Allow evil to win,
Resist and revolt,
Break off your chains.

(Chorus)
Civil obedience,
Pacified masses,
Civil obedience,
Engrained classes,
Civil obedience,
Works for the elites,
Civil obedience,
Quiet in the streets.

Break the state's laws,
Drain their capital,
Occupy your city,
Shut it fucking down,
Brought to a halt,
Then things will change,
Rights are fought for,
They're never granted.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Slaves Of Capital
No sense of control,
Buy in or die,
System in crisis,
No one asks why,
Beaten to your core,
Drilled into your brain,
Question not the boss,
Are you insane?

Private masters,
Bending to their will,
They do not care,
Who or what they kill,
It's stronghold grip.
Seems impassible,
Rise up comrades,
Slaves of capital.
