Mighty and superior we are the rulers you're the ruled
protest to resistance
abolishment of power?
monitors the obvious
- from control tower:
protest when they hand out leaflets
riot trough the streets?
whatever, they don't stand a chance
- we're turning up the heat
took a lucking liberty last year
see them try it again
desecrated the cenotaph
you see our finest leader's head?
we portrayed them in the media
it seems no one has seen?
scum donít know whatís right and wrong
no excuse for what they've done
excuse do you want one?
how about this for a start
you're too .stupid to listen to common sense's heart
expect time and time and time again
anger to resist
ain't your world; itís everyone.
the cherished power that you insist
on you fucking anarchist scum
warned our force is second to none
Monitored movements' Is zero tolerance so unclear?
means get back and stay put
opinion, don't concern
got the point - now feel it
you moronic bastards ever learn?
bow to no one
St Paul's to Seattle
now millions who won't be taught
donít obey, confirm conspire
views Cannot be bought
sold by banks and governments
accept and follow blindly
they destroy our planet
song always remains defiant
who care regardless
don't hold their hand but bite it
don't accept, refuse
have nothing left but to fight it
fimly in the future
one foot inside the door
message as ever simple
won't take your shit no more
Keep looking straight ahead and donít let them stray. Donít question anything, donít think or debate
Because youíve seen it once before and you'll see it again
The strange disappearances of those who are the same
The same as the people who fight for their rights
Then backstab each other in middle of the night
The whining freedom anthem songs
Sacrifice the lot to end all the wrongs
"A few lives ruined but we still have the songs"
But the troops are marching on and on and on
We sing our own songs; we choose our own ways
You try to ignore us, but we'll never go away
Looking down on us from your privilege and greed
Taking all you can and making others bleed
Destroying all you touch now your answers are through
Iím sure we can do better than you
The left wing manifesto, the right wing sham
Tells us we canít, but I tell you we can
They might tell us we canít but I know that we can, Stuff your lies, you know we can, We can
The second album full of same old songs
She wakes up in the morning; the sun is shining in her face
So much for the change, the re-arranging and politicians declared dead
So much for the troops forced out of Ireland, the police abolished?
I read that things had gone too far and awareness had caused concern at the top
But their backbone must not crack, so their city will not stop
We need a whole new ploy to direct our motives and anger
Force what we see as right but the system holds our banners
We need that new ploy, direct our feelings and anger
Force what we know as right, make our feelings turn into action
Meanwhile senile morans are shitting bricks because they know the people have learnt
Just whoís who and who funds what. Itís time those bastards tables burned
But it has all been said in another time
And if I have sung it once then it is a thousand times
That if we donít do it now we are never gonna break
Free from the oppression that makes us hate
Free from their law, their hypocrisy
From their war that turns our sunny day grey
To free all the animals locked in a cage
Slowly going mad with fits of rage
Itís time to overcome 1984
Forget that fairytale, slam shut the door
Itís time for reality, not false hopes
Itís time to show them whoís the joke
Itís time to take, itís not too late
So much for the changing, re-arranging, everything else we said
So much for their scum forced out of Ireland they increased the pressure instead
If things have gone too far then action will prove fatal to their props
Yes that backbone might not crack, but their city tears apart!
does Direct Action Mean?
means that you are no longer prepared to sit back and allow terrible, cruel
things to happen. The cameraman in Ethiopa took direct action, he filmed the
worst disaster that has ever happened to human beings. He realised it was too
enormous a problem to handle himself Ė so he took the films home in the hope
other people would help. They did. Are you prepared to sit back any longer?
Direct action in animal rights means causing economic damage to those who abuse
and make profits from exploitation. START!
Itís possible to do things alone, slash tyres, glue up locks, butchers, burger bars, the furriers, smash windows, bankrupt the lot. Throw paint over shops and houses. Paint stripper works great on cars. Chewing gum sticks well to fur coats. A seized engine just wonít start, sand in the petrol tank means that deliveryís going nowhere. When the new death shop opens up make sure youíre the first person to be there. If the circus comes to town remember what goes up must come down.Stop contributing to the abuse yourself Ė donít eat meat, donít buy leather. Buy non-animal tested make up, herbal soap and shampooís better.
and form a group of people that you know that you can trust and plan ambitious
direct action, sometimes risky but a must. Only when you have animal liberation
will we obtain human freedom, when the last vivisectionistís blade is snapped.
It will be that one step nearer to peace. Direct action in the animal movement
is sussed and strong, and our final goal is not far off.
Animal lovers, vandals, hooligans, cranks; recognise the labels? They say we donít care about human beings. We say all sentient beings, animal or human have the right to live, free from pain, torture and suffering. They say because we are human and speak the same, we matter more. Is our pain and suffering any greater or lesser than that of animals? Human v. animal rights is as much a prejudice as black v. white or the nazis versus the jews an affront to our freedom. Vivisection is a violation of human beings, the same as it is for animals. We have a chemical world built on a pile of drugs to thanks for their experiments. Drugs are designed for profit, manufactured to suppress symptons. Human freedom, animal rights. Itís one struggle, one fight. When animal abuse is stopped, then human abuse will soon stop also, an attitude of mind. ďAn eye for an eye leaves the whole world blindĒ. Start by protecting the weak, the defenceless, animals, the sick, the disabled. Compassion and emotion are our most important safety values. If we lose them, then Ďwe loseí the vitality of life itself. Emotional? Hooligans? Cranks?....
Mother Nature smiles and cracks a new days dawn
The winds of change are now blowing again
I can sense it; I can feel it, like a breath of fresh air
Thousands upon thousands of words, is our right to reply
A question of priorities, in a universal role
Memories surround of better times, so donít expect too much
As all seems lost, when the world finally says give up
From the dark wind swept streets, I see a glimmer of light, of hope, a presence of defiance
I wonder, and I realise that while some wait for miracles, others may help create them
From a room that has no view, I gaze from the window
I consider our purpose; the cold stars look down
And there's a feeling that someone, or something, is always looking
Strange because itís like, careful observation, the sweetest manipulation
Those smiling images of love, a confused pattern of trust
A feeble structure fleeing responsibility and feelings
And I wonder who, what, why, where and when and if in fact I am still believing?
In all those moments we've shared. Of all the things that we have been through
I feel happiness, sadness. Remember the places that we have been to
Push our views and ideas home. Of meeting people who feel alone
Of seeing anguished faces smile again. An achievement? Well I hope
As we swim from the shore, I can feel the undercurrent
I hear songs of hope and glory, but how deep is their ocean?
We turn and face obsession, a painful reminder from tomorrow
The seas a funny shade of blue now, do we drown in mistakes sorrow?
A nation remains silent, burnt out skulls, blank expressions
An image of convenience in realityís succession
Blind in the one eyed kingdom, following those who followed last
Who followed those, who followed before them? Is there a future in the past?
