Lyrics

You don't want to see the lies they tell
But if you look around you can see the hell

You never know why
You only know the lies
And I don't want to be the one you turn to when you realize
They don't give a fuck about you as they devastate your life

I don't wanna be the one you hate
As you finally realize your fate

You never know why
You only know the lies
And I don't want to be the one you turn to when you realize
They don't give a fuck about you as they devastate your life

You never know why
You only know the lies
And I don't want to be the one you turn to when you realize
They don't give a fuck about you as they devastate your...
And I don't want to be the one you turn to when you realize
They don't give a fuck about you as they devastate your life

Nice one, intense lyrics, dig the solo and return to vocals after it, the ending builds up strongly!

This is really fresh and good. Nice combo of attitude and catchiness!

nicely done! all those sections really work together, and its got great drive and determination. The guitar solo is interesting, I'd almost say 'either get even more dissonant, or more pretty', but given the 'take no prisoners' message, I'd say get even more dissonant!

I like this - catchy and a great chorus. Short and sweet and just gets to the point, the way punk should be but also the way the lyrics flow in the chorus is really nice.

Very cool! Again a song which make feel so much younger as I am 😎

this is so authentic to the period when punk was devolving into new wave. even the guitar solo with a few conspicuously bad notes felt just right, as did your song construction .that mixed primitive punk with more sophistcated metrical challenges, and your voice and delivery was spot on. well donr on all counts.

To me, this kind of has an 80s bar band feel to it; I may be making that up, but I'm very much enjoying it regardless. There's a terrific energy, especially with with the building chorus. And this is so filled with hooks; both the verse and and chorus are eminently hummable, and I really like the way the chorus vocals kind of "drop" at the end. So much here to groove to!
