Liner Notes: 

Tuesday the 13th in the basement with the Catalytic Perverters and this was our final song of the night. Once again, this is pretty much improvisation musically, some sloppy, muddling seconds have been trimmed from the beginning. I added the vocal the next morning, still pondering the weight and implications of one side's arguments in the debate. A lot of swearing in this one. You kind of have to swear about it.

Lyrics: 

all of these crazy fucks
how do we stop them?
and just who decides
who is a crazy fuck?
and what if they decide
that what I like
is something only liked
by crazy fucks?

touching on the sickness
we carry deep within us
instinctual paranoia
of cultural perestroika
sometimes you have to
break a few eggs to
have your cake and eat it

it's all about mental health
after the bullets fly
and violent video games
ending people's lives
chest-thumping patriots
who say, "You'd still be Brits."
as long as they've got theirs
they don't give a shit

touching on the sickness
we carry deep within us
instinctual paranoia
of cultural perestroika
sometimes you have to
break a few eggs to
have your cake and eat it



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Powerful! Strong images and great driving delivery. Awesome guitar. Great observations and social commentary song. Love the message in the chorus.
