[MEATHEAD]
---------
What the fuck are you doing here
Red braces ugly faces you are feeding off of fear
Don't you know that the Third Reich is dead
Adolph Hitler died an impotent bastard full of lead
And just what the hell makes you think you're so great
You'd be the first one I would kill to purify the race

Fascism - They hung Mussolini by his feet
White trash, Redneck your bald head is full of meat
You're not fooling anybody everybody knows
You're just a fucking redneck who got his head mowed
You're not fooling anybody everybody knows
You're just a fucking redneck

You call yourself working class but you've never had a job
You know you're fucking worthless, a worthless fucking slob
Your brain is dead your life is worthless you're just taking up space
You make me sick with all the shit you spout about the master race
And just what the hell makes you think you're so great
You'd be the first one I would kill to purify the race

Hey! Hey! Hey!

I'm sick and tired of your stupidity
Your fascism, Your rascism, your bigotry
You're a meathead with nothing intelligent to say
You're a meathead chock full of misdirected hate

We need a fascist funeral
We need a fascist funeral
We need a fascist fascist funeral
We need a fascist fascist funeral

What the fuck are you doing here
Red braces ugly faces you are feeding off of fear
Don't you know that the Third Reich is dead
Adolph Hitler died an impotent bastard full of lead
And just what the hell makes you think you're so great
You'd be the first one I would kill to purify the race

Fascism - They hung Mussolini by his feet
White trash, Redneck your bald head is full of meat
You're not fooling anybody everybody knows
You're just a fucking redneck who got his head mowed
You're not fooling anybody everybody knows
You're just a fucking redneck

Yeah

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

[RAW DEAL]
---------
Sick and tired of living in Eugene
Sick and tired of dealing with the scene
Everyone (yeah) lives in Eugene
It's a raw deal and you're in it with me

(Hey! Hey!)

Products of yourselves but you never ask why
You live right next door but you never come by

Raw Deal! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Why can't we find somewhere to play
I can't stand it it's all the same

Well it's Eugene now

Why can't I find shit, fuck this town

[TIME BOMB!]
---------
Geoffy's got a problem, he's out of control
Geoffy's got a problem, woah

So now you've got nothing to show for yourself
Except this deranged and twisted mental health
You've been a device and you've been ready for so long
Your time is short, your time is up

Time Bomb!

For so long he never heard what they said
Searching for just where he belonged
You see he existed for fucking his head

For so long he never heard what they said
He needed to know just where he belonged
He was just fucking his head

I saw it so long, Geoffy's Timebomb
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

So this is how you spend your time
You follow the leader, your ignorance is a crime
You've been a device and you've been ready for so long
Your time is short, your time is up

Time Bomb!

For so long he never heard what they said
Searching for just where he belonged
You see he existed for fucking his head

For so long he never heard what they said
He needed to know just where he belonged
He was just fucking his head

I saw it so long, Geoffy's Timebomb
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

So now you've got nothing to show for yourself
Except this deranged and twisted mental health
You've been a device and you've been ready for so long
Your time is fucking up

Timebomb!

Why everyday do you kick and shout
Why not spend the time to work it out
Geoffy's got a problem and he's out of control
Geoffy's got a problem - Woah

You've gone on for years thinking you're the best
I think it's time we put it to rest
You've been a device and you've been ready for so long

Timebomb!

For so long he never heard what they said
Searching for just where he belonged
You see he existed for fucking his head

For so long he never heard what they said
He needed to know just where he belonged
He was just fucking his head

I saw it so long, Geoffy's Timebomb
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

[ANOTHER LINE]
---------
Where does it come from
A voice from inside
Why not take a listen
It's just another line
Another line

We fall victim to our pitfalls
We fall victim to our pride
What is it who's at fault
It's just another line
Another line

It's about time
It's about time
(Let's go)

It's about time
It's about time
(let's go)

It's about time
About time to go
It's about time we said
Let's go

Opportunity lost
Because we're so fucking blind
Why not just open your eyes
It's just another line
Another line

We fall victim to our weaknesses
And we're weakened by the lie
What is it who's at fault
It's just another line
Another line

Where does it come from
A voice from inside
Why not take a listen
It's just another line
Another line

We fall victim to our pitfalls
We fall victim to our pride
What is it who's at fault
It's just another line
Another line

It's about time
It's about time
(Let's go)

It's about time

[ALL WRONG]
---------
All Right!

Let's Go!

We're not living in black and white
You don't know what I'm like
No one ever gave to you the go-ahead to decide

We're not living in black and white
You don't know what is right what's right
What's right
What's right
What is right

We're not sharp
And we're not rude
We don't have no edge
And no, we aren't the crew

We're not sharp
And we're not rude
We don't have no edge
And no, we aren't the crew

We're not sharp
And we're not rude
We don't have no edge
And we aren't the crew

Labeling me is just to easy
There's no thought put into it

No basis to your accusations
You gotta stop and think
Before you talk that shit

Your stereotypes show fallen standards
Brainless ideas about what is true

With your first impressions
And misguided intentions

No matter what you're thinking
You've got no fucking clue

We're not sharp
And we're not rude
We don't have no edge
And no, we aren't the crew

We're not living in black and white
You don't know what I'm like
No one ever gave to you the go-ahead to decide

We're not living in black and white

We're not living in black and white

[NO TRUST]
---------
Knocked down I slowly realize exactly what I've lost
I've come to recognize there are so few that I can trust
I try to get away, as far away as I can
It's time to make my stand, it's time to make my stand

I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you

I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you

Betrayed for the last time, finally I know the costs
But when you spit on me I know that I've not lost
I try to get away as far away as I can
It's time to take a stand, it's time to take my last stand

Knocked down I slowly realize exactly what I've lost
And now I recognize there are so few that I can trust
I try to get away as far away as I can
It's time to take a stand, it's time to take my last stand

Betrayed for the last time
Betrayed for the last time
Betrayed for the last time
It's time to take a stand, it's time to take my last stand

I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you

I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you
I can't trust you

No

[OUTSIDER]

So far, so far away from home
I lost my peace I got nowhere to go
I'm gonna cry in misery and pain
Someday I'll die but I've got no shame

So far, so far away from home
I lost my peace I got nowhere to go
I'm gonna cry in misery and pain
Someday I'll die but I've got no shame

So far, so far away from home
I lost my peace I got nowhere to go
I'm gonna cry in misery and pain
Someday I'll die but I've got no shame

So far, so far away from home
I lost my peace I got nowhere to go
Somewhere along the line
I took a wrong turn
I lay it down
Just to watch it burn

I lay it down
Just to watch it burn

I lay it down
Just to watch it burn

I lay it down
To watch it burn

You're on the outside, you're all alone
Take it from me kid, damn no home
