Track Name: Bombs Over Oakland
bomb the fuck out of chevron
let's get the dirt out
let's get their crap out in the open
i always thought i'd be a little more far away

one day they'll even annihilate your existence
you'll have no more thrillhouse and no more 1234go and you got
nothing left and you're left out on the streets

gentrification - got rid of raider nation
when techie assholes are not willing to share they're stocks are in the air
gentrification - was always their intention
so fucking join cuz the crooks are out to play, they're gonna sell your bay
and guess who's gonna have to pay

i wouldn't go and fight in vietnam if i could simply kill my boss
it's not the workers slaving in iraq who make my life feel so much worse
when to my boss asked for a decent wage he cussed me out and slammed the door
we talked about it and we organized and now the fucker's on the floor

gentrification - got rid of raider nation
when techie assholes are not willing to share they're stocks are in the air
gentrification - was always their intention
so fucking join cuz the crooks are out to play, they're gonna sell your bay
and guess who's gonna fucking pay
Track Name: Blood Money
stick my skin and lay in bed, lay back and rest my head
blood money’s coming soon
bad jokes and TV shows, my cycle’s much too slow
blood money’s coming soon

when I’m walking to the door, and my arm it feels real sore, i just can’t figure out why, I keep coming back for more, when body fluids are just a product to sell off, the resource keeps renewing, and it’s kind of hard to stop

college kids and bums alike, business men saving for more flights
blood money’s coming soon, nobody gives a shit about hemophilic kids when
blood money’s coming soon

when I’m walking to the door, and my arm it feels real sore, I just can’t figure out why I keep coming back for more, when body fluids are just a product to sell off, the resource keeps renewing and it’s kind of hard to stop

extra cash in exchange for your time, and body fluids but hey you will not mind, when you’re drinking all that cheap beer you bought, we know you cannot really stop ‘til you're dry, ‘til you're dry, ‘til you're dry, ‘til you die
Track Name: Drone Party
we're gonna have a drone party
get the wife and the kids
we're gonna ravage a whole fucking town
i'll get the drugs and you get the beers

our peaceful nation is sending
peaceful signals of love
and there's no motherfuckers bombing us now
from far above

we're gonna have a drone party
tell everybody you know
little children running like ants
and you sit back and enjoy your blow

our peaceful nation is sending
peaceful signals of love
and there's no motherfuckers bombing us now
from far above

look at me baby i'm a military man
i'm the best and you know i got swag
look at me baby i'm a military man
i'll even cum on your flag
and no one's ever really dead
no one gets shot in the head
when all our planes are unmanned
Track Name: Types of Hats
your beret
looks real nice
i would like to
give a try

when i go to
hats caps and more there's
nothing in my size
so before i, leave the store i
buy myself a knife

bowlers and beanies
coonskin and fruit hats
fedora, yarmulke
these are all things i'd like to try

when i go to
hats caps and more there's
nothing in my size
so before i, leave the store i
buy myself a knife
Track Name: NAFTA On Steroids
remember sopa when they said surveillance is all we really need?
you got obama looking over your shoulders cuz you smoked a bunch of weed
remember hearing that your wages are secure?
but it's austerity they're selling to the poor
the fuck?

those fuckers hide it from us all because it's just a piece of shit
and when the world bank and the imf are always sucking each others' dicks
would it surprise you, then, at all
when they ram it down our fucking throats?

so let's just blow our snot on the tpp
wipe our ass with the tpp
set on fire the tpp
obama you are such a dick
we'll just blow our snot on the tpp
wipe our ass with the tpp
set on fire the tpp

edward snowden? julian assange?
please tell us what they got in it
walmart is coming! run for your lives!
they'll have you slaving in minutes
let's go!
Track Name: Jenny's House
jon williams is dead
tied a rope round his neck and jumped off a bridge
i found out the very next day
it was on rice road, i was in frisco
jon was my best friend
we used to smoke in his truck blasting supersonic
and then when september came
it never was the same

always thought it would end up this way
18 year olds and drinking all day

why the fuck are you dead?
just tied a rope round your neck and jumped off that bridge
i found out the very next day
it was on rice road, i was in frisco
jon was my best friend
we used to smoke in his truck blasting punk in drublic
and then when september came
it never was the same

always thought it would end up this way
21 - and we're drunk everyday

that shit was fucking nice
let's go to jenny's house
the beer is free and we'll laugh at stupid bros
but now you're cold as ice
and we won't go to jenny's house
you knew you could have called me on the phone
you're leaving me and ryan on our own
Track Name: Becker Says Go Vegan
i look outside these walls
this thing you call a scene
a bunch of assholes screaming bullshit, shouting "unity!"
uniting with your friends is just like eating when you're full
and i'm so fucking fed
i'm fed up with the kids
you're fighting for no cause
you dress up like a clown and then expecting grand applause
if the struggle for a better world's got nothing to do with punk
i'm clocking out at 5

i'm sorry that it ended up this way
but i know this shit was better yesterday

i'm getting tired of explaining
how i'm not gonna vote to rule myself
i go to shows
it's just lovely
is there nothing left to fight?
Track Name: Right Wing Nazis
dislike assholes, dislike cops
not a fan of the ruling class
but if there's one thing that i feel
one hatred that's for real

right - wing - right wing nazis!
right - wing - right wing nazis!
