1917 01:12
1917 In 1917 There was a prophecy It's coming true Here's what to do You gotta believe In the three Know what’s true Live your life anew Communism's errors Have spread around You’ve taken our freedom You’ve beat us down You take from the young And let evil abound You take our guns So you can take us down 1917 Hell is not a dream The war to end all war Another was in store Freedom to believe Taken with no reprieve Many went astray Still the same today Telling me your lies are truth Doing that by falsifying your proof You haven’t made your case So you have to Legislate with hate 1917 Makes me want to scream Communism ruins all lands We gotta make a stand You’ve taken our freedom to believe what we believe We’ve gone so far astray Only you can save the day
Slave of the State I work all night & I work all day The Government makes me pay I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State Trapped, gotta get me outta this gate I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State We spend our lives working for you There's something I gotta do I can't stand it anymore My life is such a bore! Going on thirty, still living at home Can't get a place of my own I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State Trapped, gotta get me outta this gate I'm a Slave, Slave, Slave of the State If this is what you call free Won't you just let me be Working for you is such a chore I just gotta have more Tax me on this, tax me on that You treat me like I'm a fat cat
Generation What's Next Generation hero Of world war two Sacrificed themselves To save the Jew Generation zero You just destroyed Didn't appreciate The good you enjoyed Generation What's Next Do something or we’ll die Generation What's Next Do something, at least give it a try Generation X Don't know what to do Handed everything Don't have a clue Generation Y They are so blind Can't tell right from wrong Don't seem to mind Generation What's Next You are our only hope Generation What's Next Our last and final hope
Garbage In Garbage Out Garbage in Garbage out you’re hearing lies there is no doubt Heads I win Tales you lose Spin the spin Abuse the truth Knowledge is power Only if it's true Don’t believe everything That they teach in school The Court Jester Is now the King Lawyers & Unions Control everything They make more money Telling their lies They don’t care If you DIE Knowledge ain’t power when it’s a LIE Don’t believe anything Their common sense has gone awry Functional idiot with no brain you are so elite you treat me with disdain You’re full of hate And say it’s love You call good evil And what’s evil good
Stop Electing Idiots Stop Electing Idiots Stop Electing Idiots Stop Electing Idiots
Repeal All Laws Repeal all laws begin again Then make a few with Common Sense Repeal all laws begin again We’ll regain our freedom then Too Many Laws are out of date Too many laws are full of hate Too many laws that don’t create Too many laws it’s a big mistake Repeal all laws begin again We all win in the end Repeal all laws begin again Then our freedom will extend Things aren’t working Can't you see Life is better when we’re free Too many Laws tell me what to do I’ve had it I am through Regulations, can’t you see Only hurt you and me Why can’t you let me be And stop your tyranny Your doctrine is based on fear & death wanna to control my every breath Your tactic is not going to work on me It’s my life and I want to be free Why am I being sued, Can’t live the life I choose, Now I am telling you That I refuse Repeal all laws begin again Repeal all laws begin again Repeal all laws begin again Repeal all laws begin again
Nothing's Perfect Life's not fair you can't make it be Nothing's perfect Come back to reality No such thing as heaven on earth realize that & you won't be hurt Nothings Perfect Can't you see Realize that 'N you'll be free Nothings perfect things go wrong Mistakes and failure Make us strong You can’t protect me from my pain You can’t protect me from everything Good intentions aren’t enough Face reality There’s no Utopia The end justifies the means Is just bad philosophy Hell is paved with good intents Gotta use some common sense Life won’t get perfect by controlling me Gotta stop forcing Your Morality You dream of things that just can’t be No Sympathy for Stupidity Stop forcing your morality on me
It's all about the money Breast Cancer, AIDS Alar, Oatmeal, Eggs Global Warming, 2nd hand smoke Silicon Implants, tell me another joke Dirty Water & air, trying to make me despair The list is endless, lying to make me care. How many lies must we hear Before we learn Lying to make the world better Only makes it worse It's all about the money They want to control Trying to rule with fear That's their goal Government’s not the answer It's the problem They take your money And then your freedom Heads they win tails we lose They win no matter what we do
Perpetually Pissed Off I’m sick of you telling me what to do Perpetually Pissed Off You wanna keep me From having fun Perpetually Pissed Off You’re just bored with nothing to do Perpetually Pissed Off All my life you’re taking freedom from me Perpetually Pissed Off A product of my environment Perpetually Pissed Off Society has Gone really Mad Perpetually Pissed Off

Dude, Gotta change your 'tude Ya Wanna stop feelin' blue? Just gotta change your tude! Don't take things so hard Gotta just lighten up You don't wanna be scarred for life You know what you gotta do Happiness is your obligation Most people just don't see It's something that can be changed Just will to be happy!
What Rights 01:34
What Rights Rights! Rights! Rights! What Rights?! Stop taking my Freedom from me Give me back my Liberty Don’t tell me what to buy or eat This nanny state wants to take care of me Stop the Train let me get off The train to insanity has got to stop Liberalism’s felt not really thought Listen to me and you won’t be fraught Your rights don’t come from the state If they did they could take them away What I crave is Freedom and Liberty That’s just this side of Anarchy
It’s my world Stay out of it
Why? 02:37
Why? Is there such a thing as a supreme being There has to be, how then did we evolve? This is such a mystery, why all the secrecy? Why don't we know, I know this can be solved Did God make us or did we make Him? Are we victims of ignorance Passed down through the ages? We can change if we know The Truth God made us we didn’t make Him? We give life, we take it away, No one is here to stay. We live, we die, For it there's not much to show We're put on this earth to choose. We've got everything to lose. Heaven or hell, it is your choice where you go I want to know -- Why we live. Why we die. Why we rejoice. Why we laugh. Why we cry. Why we have a choice.
Times Have Changed Times have changed Times are strange - - - again The more things change The more they’re the same


From MRR 370
This CD certainly has no time for subtlety. Here we have fourteen songs of easily digestible political punk. Sort of the same way the PIST were. Political songs that are so straightforward, they actually become clique (or even worse, an unintentional parody of the genre). If you're super young, this could be a fun listen. But for all the folks out there who are no longer a fourteen-year-old with an AUS-ROTTEN back patch, this kind of stuff just seems so obvious that it becomes boring. It is true that the government just wants our money (as one song suggests) but if you are going to be the 34,481st band to write a song on that topic, ya gotta give us something a little bit more nuanced. Although, if you are one of the many punks out there who spend a fair amount of time staring longingly at your old PIST tattoo, THIS SIDE OF ANARCHY might help fill that void in your life. And while the songs' delivery may be a bit heavy handed, these songs do rock pretty hard.
