Track Name: Rolling News - Fox Screwed
24/7 rolling hate
Invade the world before it’s too late
All sealed up in a first world bubble
Build a wall around all your trouble
Fundamental - believe the hype
All wrapped up in the stars and stripes
American dream is a Yankee nightmare
Maintain control, keep the people scared

Fox news - you believe that shite
Fox news - full of hate and spite
Fox news - they got you scared
Fox news - terror everywhere

Pseudo fascist & you’re out to lunch
Seen it before, we got you sussed
Fear factory - on the hour
Fear factory - the rich man’s power
Sword of the lord, you know the score
Fuel the fire for the bloody war
Fuel the fire for the easily led
Passive consumption, your brain is dead

Our lord Rupert Murdoch still lives and breathes
Without him, we know not what to believe!
Give us this day our right-wing news
Behold your rolling news - you're Fox screwed
Rolling news - you're Fox screwed!
You gotta believe
Believe
Please believe!
Track Name: Suffering Mundanity
Suffering mundanity
A boring life for you & me
Traipsing through the day-to-day
A boring life, with bills to pay
Indoctrinated 9-5
Waste of time to stay alive
Shut up boy, we pay your wage
Lucky boy to be our slave

Every day - feels just the same
Every day - aches & pains
Every day - wasting away
Full of pride & nothing to say

Thank you for your factories
Making shit that no one needs
Plastic shit - commodities
Consumer shit society
Cower in our servitude
Pay the rent & eat shit food
Lives are spent, live like drones
Hand-to-mouth & payday loans

They took away our pride
They wasted half your life
No one ever mentioned
You had a right to question
1, 2, fuck you!

Life of pure mundanity
Stretching out in front of me
Rotting, numb & powerless
Exist to eat, at very best
Work should be no punishment
Function with no government
Agitate - organise
Educate - reclaim your life
Track Name: A Glimmer of Hope
They’re the fools with the tools and the shower with the power
The scum with the bombs, and the people cower

Religious murder or death by drone
In desperation you flee your home
Exploitation of those that flee
The media blame the refugee
For those who make it, there’s a glimmer of hope
Rest in peace for those that don’t
A drone, a truncheon or a sinking boat
Rest in peace for those that don’t

Desperate and homeless, you march for months
Stop killing people, you fucking cunts!
Mindless destruction on the enemy soil
Destruction of freedom - empire - oil
For those that make it, there’s a glimmer of hope
Rest in peace for those that don’t
A drone, a truncheon or a sinking boat
Rest in peace for those that don’t

They’re the fools with the tools and the shower with the power
The scum with the bombs, and the people cower
They’re the fools with the tools and the shower with the power
The scum with the bombs, and the people cower
And the people cower
You see the people cower
Track Name: All You Can Eat Bibles
The taste of salvation; the rise and the fall
One god, conquers them all
Nothing will grow on your scorched earth
Faced with a choice - death or the church

Given a bible instead of a meal
Thou shalt not murder, covet or steal
Ignore all hunger and rise from your knees
See how religion covets disease
Nothing will grow but the word of the Lord
Die with your bibles, your prayers ignored
Starvation and hunger, the Christian led
The meek shall inherit a billion dead

Fuck you and your nation, got nobody fooled
God and your nation, all borders shall fall
Religious dictation, you’re scum of the earth
Violence, destruction, leaves nothing of worth
When you’re down on your knees
Down on your knees
Down on your knees
Down on your knees
Track Name: Mockery and Shockery
You exploit the poor on your TV show
It’s a sign of the times and the bastard’s gotta go
No more mockery, no shockery, no circus sideshow
Dancing bears in a game of arseholes

Exploitation on a daily basis
For disaffected suckers who lack all status
Circus sideshow, lost and found
Circus sideshow, lost and found
Life and death and all the shaming
All play a part in the victim blaming
Fuck all pride, fuck all fee
Fat cats rub their hands with glee

Scripted violence and the words that fail us
All fuel the fire for the Daily Mailers
Circus sideshow, lost & found
You never look up, you only look down
See the peak we’ve reached right now
The man on the street is a daytime clown
See that clown; heap your scorn
Your daily dose of poverty porn

False reality, a life in the shitter
All your life to look a cunt on Twitter
Take a seat on your daytime throne
Act like a dog and I’ll throw you a bone
No ideas above your station
Twice your giro - humiliation
Circus sideshow, lost and found
The people suffer, the media scrounge...
