about

Verse
In this state in which I live
I have no more blood to give!
The police break into my home!
Why won’t they just leave me alone?
Is there something I can’t see?
I don’t expect nothing for free!
At best, this system is Ludicrous!
And just look at the fine print
About the men who we elect
They have got us by the neck!

Chorus
Mutual brutality! Sometimes, it’s what I need!
Mutual brutality! I feel better when I bleed!
Mutual brutality! I can’t simply forget what I’ve seen!
Mutual brutality! Saving me from insanity!

Verse
As I get up off the ground
I just wanna knock someone down!
So, I search for that punk rock sound
And I put my elbows out!
You’d better be a little tough my son
Or this pit won’t be much fun
Round and round and round we go
Always move against the flow!
Once i let my rage escape
Onto someone else’s face
I shake hands, it’s getting late
Wipe the blood and hit the gate!

Track Name: Dead and Blue
Dead and Blue

You say that we are free, so why can’t you just let me be?
Every day you get paid is a day we get played
Benefit of the doubt, for you time has run out
Taught you could you could be trusted
Kelly Thomas got his face busted!

Can never bring him back
A ruthless attack
Can never bring him back

Red and blue lights, dead and blue lights
Every single night make me want to fight

Not up for a debate, this here’s a police state
We protest in the street, but they still set you free
You’re huffin’ and puffin’, but I ain’t never done nothin’
You’re screamin’ and yellin’ but I ain’t never tellin’
Can never bring him back
A ruthless attack
Can never bring him back

Red and blue lights, dead and blue lights
Every single night make me want to fight

Red! Blue! Dead! Blue!
Can never bring him back…
Track Name: Day Dreamer
Daydreamer

American socialite culture, you make me sick!
Look me in the eye, and tell me what you do is right!
Have you ever done anything, for someone in need?
Look at yourself, I bet your mother’s proud!

Oooooo daydreamer, dream your life away
Oooooo daydreamer I can’t believe a word you say
Oooooo daydreamer, your treachery never ends
Oooooo daydreamer go play with your friends!

Diabolical indecision by indiscriminate men and women
You sacrifice my rights to better your own rights
Your higher authority is the immoral majority
And you never can see through the lies of mainstream news

Oooooo daydreamer, dream your life away
Oooooo daydreamer I can’t believe a word you say
Oooooo daydreamer, your treachery never ends
Oooooo daydreamer go play with your friends!
Track Name: Good Person
Good Person

Just tryin’ to be a good person, whoa, but your justice system ain’t workin’, no x2

California, land of dreams
But it’s not always what it seems
Society, de-criminalize me!
Society, de-criminalize me!

Just tryin’ to be a good person, whoa, but your justice system ain’t workin’, no x2

I’m just a simple man
You already know where i stand
I feel like i’m the hunted prey
Why can’t we just be free?
Track Name: Just Not Like the Rest
Just Not Like the Rest

Verse 1
Clenched fists, tight jaw
I can’t understand what I saw!
Arms out, head down
I can’t stand life in this town!
My heart pounds in my chest!
I’m just not like the rest!
I can’t breathe, I can’t speak!
It’s as if nothing’s in my reach!
You look at me, what do you see?
A person ousted from society?

Chorus
I don’t want to live this way!
Anger and hatred ruling my day!
I just can’t wrap my mind around
All the lies that i have found!

Verse 2
This society makes me sick!
Smash your face in with a brick!
Don’t look into my eyes
Just keep on walking by
I’ve often been way too kind!
Now I’ve almost lost my mind!
Track Name: Repugnant
Repugnant

Got 18 stitches an’ a bottle o’ rum,
Don’t even know where i got it from…
My eyes are all swollen from who knows what
And I can’t even tell which way is up…

Chorus
Because I’m repugnant!-and I don’t care!
Dip your brow my way boy if you dare!
Repugnant!-baby, life ain’t fair!
Repugnant!-I never got my share…
Repugnant!-took a leap of faith…
Repugnant!-and landed on my face

Verse 2
Ma knuckles all bloody, got a busted thumb
…and all I can hear is a rattle and a hum
Even though i woke up feeling great
Got a sneaking suspicion I should be irate!

Chorus 2
Because I’m repugnant!-and I don’t care!
Dip your brow my way boy if you dare!
Repugnant!-baby, life ain’t fair!
Repugnant!-I never got my share…
Repugnant!-took a leap of faith…
Repugnant!-and landed on my face!
Track Name: Vagabond
Vagabond

I ain’t got no more words to sing
And if I did, they’d be bad and mean
I ain’t got nuthin’ more to tell than this whole world’s goin’ straight to hell
And if i had somethin’ more to say, it wouldn’t never matter anyways

Cuz I’m a vagabond, where did i go wrong?
I’m a vagabond, where do i belong?

Always tried to do what’s right
More times than not, ended in a fight
I don’t hate you, but you hate me
I just wish you’d see what I’ve seen
And just because I carry a gun, doesn’t mean that you need to run

Cuz I’m a vagabond, where did I go wrong?
I’m a vagabond, where do I belong?
As I walk down this gravel road, I just want to be left alone
Tried to give myself to the cause that’s good, but then your face went and dented my hood
I don’t need no fancy car, all I got’s this old guitar

Cuz I’m a vagabond, where did I go wrong?
I’m a vagabond, where do I belong?
Track Name: What You See Is What You Get
What You See Is What You Get

Verse

People say I should be sedated
Like I’m not there, they all debate it
Every fear I have, I step and face it
If it’s a problem, I just replace it
And today, what you see is what you get
Many have tried, but none have changed me yet! Chorus
I may not be good enough for you
But I’ll never be good enough for me!
And even though I wear my heart on my shirt sleeve,
I’ll never fit in in this society!

Verse 2

I know how it feels to be hated!
So much that I’ve become jaded!
And I know I shouldn’t ever take it
But the light within me has faded
Cuz everyone close to me creates it
And says it’s only me to blame for it!
I just wanna get an ugly face lift!
Or jump onto a fast moving space ship!

Track Name: No Regrets
No Regrets

I come from a place where the killers go free
Where your life can change with the ocean breeze
If I’ve learned one thing from runnin’ these streets
It’s that you gotta stand up for what you believe
Day or night, black or white, it’s all the same
You gotta stand tall to survive the game
Life don’t always go how we planned
That blood on the sidewalk’s on all our hands
In California!

I-I got no regrets! No regrets! No regrets! No regrets! X2

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks
Hey, catch my drift? Cash in your chips
And make a cure for the poor and those at war
Because soon it will be knocking at your door
I say, close the ranks and close the banks
They never bailed me out when i was down and out
And its OK I started out here way down low,
Up’s the only way i can go
In California!

I-I got no regrets! No regrets! No regrets! No regrets! X2

Most of us now ain’t got much money
But that doesn’t mean we can’t help the hungry
And just because we all don’t speak the same tongue doesn’t mean we can’t reach out and show some love
And there’s not much i regret in my days
But I won’t let this legacy fade away, fade away
OH, fade away
In California!

I-I got no regrets! No regrets! No regrets! No regrets! X2
Track Name: Steppin' on My Neck
Steppin’ on my neck

Up for days, sucked up face
Covered in brass burns, he never said a word
He never could seem to ever get things right
He went knuckles up and embraced the lumps

He said: steppin’ on my neck, it don’t bother me
Kick me while I’m down, it don’t bother me
Just remember when you turn out the light
I don’t have to sleep at night!
