Bullshit Crass

Fight Crass not punk
Fight Crass not punk
Fight Crass not punk
Fight Crass not punk

Anarchy and peace promote the crass
it ain't for freedom it's just for cash
they don't mean what they say
What they preach there is no way

Bullshit Crass you've been detected
Duties have your shit rejected
Bullshit Crass You've been detected
Bullshit Crass You've been detected
we'll free the punks that you've injected
Bullshit Crass You've been detected

Crass were first to say punk is dead
Now they're rightly labelled as being red
Commune Hippies That's what they are
They've got no money Ha! Ha! Ha!


Too Much Talking

Why do you blame youth for what's happening today
Who got us in this mess anyway
Does it make you feel better to pass the blame
Of course it does because your all the same
Too much talking to get no results
Too much talking always looking for faults
Too much talking that's what you do
And that's why we've got no faith in you
What do you expect when you give us nothing
We've got no incentive for whatever we're doing
You won't even listen to what we're trying to say
Instead you give more orders because that's your only way


Government Policies

Cheap labour in disguise
Youth opportunities, government lies
Keeps young kids off the dole
Future sealed or so they're told

Government policies cause of recession
Government policies too much aggression
Government policies working class enemy
Government policies a change there's gotta be

Time was when work was there
For old and young alike to share
Now Maggie's in and things are bad
Three million tells a story sad


Britain In '81

Look out of your window in the middle of the night
But don't go outside or you'll die of fright
Make sure to stay inside when it's dark
Don't risk the price of a nasty scar
This is Britain in '81
Eight year old kid from a broken home
He never knew his father, his mother's on the dole
What kind of future has society for him
He'll rebel against the system like another victim
Black man, white man out of work
They can't live together, treat each other like dirt
Foreign propaganda say's we're in a state
I hope they drop the bomb before it's too late


Colchester Council

Nothing for young people in Colchester
There's nothing for them to do
So don't blame the kids for everything
'Cos a lot of it's down to you

Colchester Council full of shit (3x)

The Council Committees in Colchester
Are not interested in youth
They too busy thinking about what's in it for them
They don't give two fucks about you
They know there's no jobs in Colchester
But they won't start to fret
Until they find themselves out of work
They don't care about what you get


Rise and Fight

We're told to shut up, sit down and obey
To them it is the only way
We're nothing at all that's what they think
A revolution is on the brink
Our time will come and soon they'll see
In the papers and on TV
The kids of today just won't allow
What's going on so change things now
And rise and fight for what is right


Violent Youth

You go town on a Saturday night
You just ain't happy till you've been in a fight
You have too many, get out of your head
You don't know why but you wanna see red
Violent Youth

Who you looking at that's my bird
How many times has that been heard
Excuse for trouble, excuse for a fight
Happens all the time, every night


Distorted Truth

We're told what's going on in a roundabout way
We take in everything they have to say
We've got to believe 'cos there's less complications
Knowing what's wrong so we can accept dictations

Distorted truth on the TV
It's for the good of you and me
Distorted truth turn a blind eye
On what you believe , it's do and don't die

Do you believe what you read in the papers
Journalistic distortions and evil red papers
No place for us in this dishonest system
Do what we're told ,don't have to listen


It Ain't Our Fault

It ain't our fault so don't blame us
There's nothing to do so what's all the fuss
We've got no money, we've got no say
The lack of choice keeps us at bay

It ain't our fault

So you've heard it all before well I don't care
I'll keep on shouting till you swear
That one day soon there'll be a change
It ain't much to ask so open the cage

A town so big with nothing to do
Full of young people in a queue
To nowhere, Boredom, nothing at all
Not even a home town music hall


Depression

Sitting at home with nothing to do
Feeling part of a human zoo
Got no future,nothing for me
I wanna go out but I ain't got no money
Depression! it's all around me
I'm in the pub with a beer
Closing time is getting near
Nothing to do at closing time
Is having fun some kind of crime


There'll Be No Tomorrow

There'll be no tommorrow
That's what the newsflash said
Cancel all your orders
'Cos tommorrow you'll be dead
There's no point in running
Your time has come you know
Man's become too clever
So now we'll have to go
Computerised man behind a closed door
Flicks a switch, starts a war
Shouts "Red Alert" can be heard in every town
Behind that closed door that man begins to frown


Violent Society

Don't wanna be a part of society
Don't wanna waste my life away
I don't need no learned politics
'Cos I live from day to day...in a

Violent Society
Is this the way it's meant to be
Violent Society
A brighter future I can't see

I'm told I shouldn't shout my mouth off
I'm told to watch just what I say
But what kind of life is this I sak
If I can't live it my own way...in a


CND (Campaign For Nuclear Destruction)

What's the point of marching for the CND
If Russia drops the bomb it won't save me
I don't wanna die but can't you see
If there's gonna be a war then let it be
If there's gonna be a war your views won't count
So what's the point of marching if what you say just don't count
The politicians and leaders will be the first to know
While we'll be queuing for a nuclear death row

CND it don't fool me
I don't wanna live in a weak country
CND don't fool me
I don't wanna fight for a weak coutry


They don't care about me

Five days a week in a factory
I can't take anymore it just ain't me
They say I'm lucky 'cos I've got a job
But I'm no better than the dole queue mob

And still they don't care about me
Yet I'm not earning no free money
And I don't get no press sympathy
But I won't take no charity

I go to bed late every night
I have to get up early it just ain't right
I've gotta be at work by 8am
For another eight hours of us and them


Delayed Reaction

Should have been there before the war
250 killed but they don't know what for
A great British victory yes I agree
But what a price to pay, oh can't you see

Oh, Oh, Oh, delayed Reaction
Oh, Oh, Oh, all talk no action

Visions of 1939
Under the rule of the Argentine
Falkland Islanders held in fear
The fascist threat was alway near


Rondolet Control

Getting left behind but they can't see
All they want is money
They don't tell us what's going on
We're know we're making them a fucking bomb

Rondolet control, Rondolet control

Pick up 'Sounds' what do I see
Badges and T-shirts of Special Duties
Do you think we had a say
No no no no no no way


You're doing yourself no good

I WANNA HAVE A CHANCE TO GO WHERE I WANT
WITH NO FEAR IN THE BACK OF MY MIND
I WANNA HAVE THE CHANCE TO GO OUT ALONE
BUT MY FATE'S ALREADY SIGNED

YOU'RE DOING YOURSELF NO GOOD
YOU'RE FIGHTING YOUR FELLOW MAN

I WANNA BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I WANT
WITH NO LAWS TO SAY I CAN'T DO
I WANNA BE ME AND NO ONE ELSE
I WON'T BE NOBODY'S FOOL


Punk Rocker

Johnny is a punk He dont know whats right
He's gonna go out on the town tonight
Down his local fora couple of pints
And then on to the Marquee for the rest of the night

Oh Oh Oh Oh Punk Rocker

Johnny is the smartest punk in town
Nobody's gonna put him down
He checks himself, yeah he looks just right
He's gonna go out on the town tonight

He'll stand there watching his favourite band
A pint of Lager in his hand
But he wont dance away the night
'Cos Johnny like to stay looking just right


Shadow

SHADOW SHADOW SHADOW SHADOW SHADOW SHADOW SHADOW
MY HEARTíS IN THE SHADOW
HIS HEARTíS IN THE SHADOW
MY HEARTíS IN THE SHADOW
HIS HEARTíS IN THE SHADOWÖ.GO GO (OH NO) (OH WELL)

I HEARD YOU GOT A NEW BOY, HEíS GOT MORE THAN ME

LAST NIGHT I SAW YOU DANCING, I HAD TO WATCH YOU ALL THE WHILE
HE WHISPERED SOMETHING IN YOUR EAR, YOU BOTH SAW ME AND SMILED

JENNY SAID SHEíD LEND ME A GUN,
SHE KNOWS IíM NOT WELL THEN IíLL SHOOT THAT BOY IN THE LEGS,
WHEN HE COMES TO RING YOUR BELL


Judge And Jury

JUSTICE? THERE AINT NO FUCKING JUSTICE!

THEYíRE OUT OF TOUCH AND INCOMPETENT
AND THEY DONíT KNOW WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT
VOTING ON BEHALF OF YOU AND ME
WAVING TWO FINGERS AT DEMOCRACY

JUDGE AND JURY IS WHAT THEY ARE (JUDGE AND JURY, JUDGE AND JURY)
THIS TIME THEY HAVE GONE TOO FAR (JUDGE AND JURY, JUDGE AND JURY)
PUBLIC OPINION DOES NOT COUNT (JUDGE AND JURY, JUDGE AND JURY)
THEYíVE GOT GUNS FOR SALE WITH A CASH DISCOUNT

HOW MANY MORE TIMES MUST WE SEE
MASSACRED INNOCENTS ON TV
AN AMNESTY IS NOT ENOUGH
SO DONíT TRY AND TELL ME THAT IT COSTS TOO MUCH

PARENTS AND CHILDREN ARE LIVING IN FEAR
OF A SICK SOCIETY THAT SHEDS NO TEARS
A REAL JUSTICE SYSTEM CAN NOT BE FOUND
WEíVE GOT PARASITES IN THE SCHOOL PLAYGROUND

NO PLACE FOR REASON (IN MY HEART)

WHEN I LOOK AROUND THE WORLD TODAY
MY EYES ARE OPEN WIDE
GRIEF AND SORROW, WITH NO TIME TO BORROW
DREAMS ARE CAST ASIDE

NO PLACE FOR REASON IN MY HEART
NO PLACE AT ALL

THE PRICE OF A HUMAN LIFE IT SEEMS
HAS REACHED AN ALL TIME LOW
A FAIR GAME TARGET IS A MAN ON HIS OWN
HE WONíT SEE TOMORROW

I SAW ANOTHER DEATH ON THE NEWS LAST NIGHT
IT JUST ABOUT MADE THE TV
A COUPLE OF LINES IN THE MORNING PRESS
THANK GOD IT WASNíT YOU OR ME


CRASS WAR

I WANT A WAR BETWEEN THE RICH AND THE POOR
I WANT TO FIGHT AND KNOW WHAT IíM FIGHTING FOR

IN A CLASS WAR, CRASS WAR, CLASS WAR, CRASS WAR
CLASS WAR, CRASS WAR, CLASS WAR, CRASS WAR

IN NEW YORK AND LA, CITY HALLS ARE FALLING DOWN
THEREíS NO ESCAPE, WHEN A CLASS WAR COMES TO TOWN

I WANNA KILL, BUT I DO NOT HAVE A GUN
THEREíLL BE A CLASS WAR RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA


LONDON TOWN

IT WAS JUST ANOTHER NIGHT IN GOOD OLD LONDON TOWN
SHE WAS NOT FROM THE CITY BUT IT NEVER GOT HER DOWN
HATE WAS NOT IN HER VOCABULARY
BUT SHE BECAME A VICTIM OF HER OWN NAIVETY

FEELING HIGH AFTER A NIGHT IN LONDON TOWN
UNAWARE THAT SOMEBODY WAS HANGING AROUND
WHO WAS THAT SHE COULD SEE
A FACE WITH NO PERSONALITY

NO WAY OUT, NO TURNING BACK
HER FATE IN THE HANDS OF A MANIAC
NOWHERE TO FLEE, NOWHERE TO HIDE
IT HAPPENED SO FAST AND NOW SHEíS GOT NO PRIDE

WHO WOULD WANT A NIGHT IN GOOD OLD LONDON TOWN
STAY OUT OF THE CITY, ĎCOS FUN CAN STILL BE FOUND
YOU AINíT SAFE, LISTEN TO ME
YOU AINíT SAFE IN THIS SOCIETY


TOP 40

A NEAT KIND OF SONG THAT SOUNDS SO PRETTY
A MILLION SELLING SINGLE, A NICE LITTLE DITTY
A NUMBER ONE RECORD, GET IT NOW
THEY WANT YOU TO BUY IT, ANYHOW

TOP 40, IT MAKES ME SICK
TOP 40, TURN IT OFF QUICK
TOP 40, CANíT TAKE ANY MORE
