Flipside Vinyl Fanzine Compilation vol. 3 Lyrics

ADOLESCENTS
"The Liar"
Reagan plays the liar,
Power is his desire,
There's nothing for the world we can do.

Reagan plays the liar,
The flames are burning higher,
While the world burns down around you...


76% UNCERTAIN
"Critic"
No matter what the subject
There's someone trying to tell you
What you should or shouldn't do
Your valued judgement
Don't mean a thing
But to just a very few
What's great to me
You might think it's total bullshit
So don't get on my back
Just because I don't agree

Everyone's got their own taste
Probably not quite the same as yours
Try and see that it just isn't right
To force your opinion down my throat
Look at it from a different light
Put yourself in someone else's shoes
Your words were only there to be compared
Not to be taken as law

I've got a mind of my own
So don't play both judge and jury
Tell it to someone else
I've got my own personal opinion

Just remember one thing
I'm free to say or do whatever I please
Take off your rose-colored glasses
'Cause it's a two way street,
What's great to me
You might think it's total bullshit
Don't get on my back
Just because I don't agree


SLAPSHOT
"Straight Edge In Your Face"
[Thanks to www.oldtimehardcore.com]
I keep my head in tune with my thoughts - are always clear
How can you think straight when you've had too much - in excess
You don't know what that shit does to you
How can you say that it's safe in small amounts
Until it's to late and the damage has been done

Straight edge - in you face

Clubs all night is your life
Drink too much passing out
One day you get to much - then you go out
You are dead and nobody cares about you
Nobody's learned anything
Cause they all do what you do
Everybody does it - why shouldn't I?
'Cause it's sick!

Get your booze away from me
Keep your pills out of sight
Don't get smoke in my face
Or you'll get the Straight Edge in your face

Straight edge - in your face

I keep my head in tune with my thoughts - are always clear
How can you think straight when you've had to much - in excess
You don't know what that shit does to you
How can you say that it's safe in small amounts
Until it's to late and the damage has been done


THE BRIGADE
"Living With the Bomb"
Visions of an exploding world,
Are affecting our societies.
Not knowing if our time will run out,
Is breeding insecurity.

Living with the Bomb, it's leading us on
To uncertainty and chaos today.
Living with the Bomb on the Bomb
But what can we do, our time's tic tic ticking away.

Political uncertianly,
Who are the real terrorists today
I relax take another drink,
To try to drown these feelings but relief is not arriving.

With the Bomb, it's leading us on
To uncertainty and choas today.
Living with the Bomb in the Bomb
But what can I do, my time's tic tic ticking away.

Will this ever end!

We're on the edge, no clear way back,
You live with one foot in the grave.
Could happen now, it's not a joke
We search to find an answer but is there a true answer

To the Bomb, a government bomb,
Afraid of what the future will bring.
Living on the Bomb in the Bomb
But what can they do, the clock's tic tic ticking away.

We're facing Death, it's our only world,
Just one big dead family.
Will we make peace, do we have the chance,
While using, stealing, raping, killing, lying, fucking, open.

To the Bomb, it's leading us on
To uncertainty and chaos today.
Living with the Bomb on the Bomb
But what can we do, our time's tic tic ticking away.
MAD PARADE
"Second Chances"
Do you hear the bells a ringing
Clanging inside your head
Life on a silver platter, will you take it
Well, what was he really saying
Oh, never mind, I heard
If he's a captain on the ship then I can't take it

We'll do it once, then they'll do it again
We'll do it once, then they'll do it agian

Always looking for second chances

Do you remember yesterday
And the promises that were made
But those promises never see the light of day
In God we trust, keep it in your pocket
It's an air-tight economy
Money doesn't grow on trees, money grows from greed

They say they deserve it
They say how much they care
But when you least expect it, looking the other way
What little rights you have can be taken away
If you let them be

Do you believe actions speak louder than words
It's what they say, what they really mean
Well, no one has all the answers
No matter how questions are posed
What's right for you
Well, I guess only you would know

Today is just like any other day...


BULIMIA BANQUET
"Calloused"
Skip this sensation
Can't stand your hesitation
Violent stimulation
Violent stimulation

When I'm alone I dream of lambs
When I'm asleep I dream of lamb's eyes
Why don't you listen to my cries?
Why don't you listen to my cries?

Fuck my consideration
Cause there's one complication
Your poignant hesitations
Don't fill me with elation


SHONEN KNIFE
"Cycling is Fun"
I want to run to such place with you
All scenery are changing in green
I want to run to such place with you
Nobody is behind us

I pedal my bicycle
I'm in a sweat
And we arrive at a cycling road that isn't on the map
Nobody knows it

Run, run, run and run
Run, running on the road

Not any words, not any reasons, not anybody
Hold me tight all night!


SEVEN SECONDS
"A Place"
"When we first started doing this song,
everyone said it sounded like a cross between
Social Distortion and U2. That's ok, at least
they don't say Slayer or the Exploited!"


COPULATION
"First Recidue"
"Recorded live in Lansamie Switzerland, May 1985"

TESCO VEE
AND WHITE FLAG

"Hot Rails to Hell"
(Blue Oyster Cult)

C.O.C.
"Intervention"


LEMONHEADS
"Hate Your Friends"
You got problems you can't solve
It's enough to make you hate your friends
Go to a show, stare at your face, don't you know
You hate your friends
Your face is blushing, your temperature's rising
Drink yourself silly there's no use disguising
You hate your friends

Stare at the newspaper, nothing to say
There's really no use in me going away
I think I'll go to a drugstore today,
Maybe that chick's working over there today


CIRCLE JERKS
"Fortunate Son"
(John Fogerty/CCR)



PROBLEM CHILDREN
"Energy"
Whatever happened to rock'n roll
I never hear it anymore
Your trendy clothes were status quo
But your music's gotta go

Have you forgotten what it's like to be young?
Can you honestly tell me that you're having fun?
Energy

Fast, fast, fast forward
This is the 20th century
A bloody nose is your reward
Energy is my high
Have you forgotten...


VATICAN COMMANDOS
"Last Wish"
Last time I saw you I realized things could go much better,
But I never suspected, until I got your letter
You had one wish left with the power to grant it.
I heard you shot yourself, decided life wasn't worth it

Why did you have to shoot
And make your last wish come true.

Now the time has passed but the pain hasn't gone away
So many things left unsaid, so many things to say.
They say time heals all, so make it go away.
Time may heal but it can't change what I didn't say.


M.I.A.
"California Dreamin'"
(the Mamas and the Papas)



LITTLE GENTLEMEN
"Just Waiting (for the Civil War)"
Old man said to me-
You better get the pictures, better get them tonight
Old man said to me-
Better get the pictures, they're burning babies tonight
Old man said to me-
Gonna take them home and watch them with the wife
Old man said to me-
Gonna watch them burning down tonight

The streets will fill with the blood she screamed
From the bunker top the night before
But the only blood spilled was your own
From the ten thousand holes they chose to count

Woman ran up screaming to me-
Have you seen pine street is it on fire
Angry mob pointing at me-
Chanting murder, burn, murder, burn
A media circus going round and round-
We interrupt this pagent for a special word
I'm getting my ass out of town-
Before I'm the next one getting burned

The word was full and total which quickly turned into I don't recall
Where were you in October man, who the hell is Sargent Powell
Then it came, the day we thought would never come was finally here
You looked to South Africa, now it's Beruit for everyone
I don't know when it started, and I don't know it's gonna end
Where were you when the lights went out, in a drugged out stupor or your normal haze

Don't worry dear it can't happen here, it's just make believe on TV
Turn the channel tune out reality, and get the re-run of Dynasty
Your tune will quickly change when it's your skies that are burning red
When the man you once called neighbor got caught in the cross fire and is shot down dead

I watched the armies as they marched, devouring blood in every step
They shot and killed everything that moved, and stole form anything that was left
I don't know whose side you're on, I just know that I'm on mine
Johnny get your gun tomorrow, cause I'm sure as hell gonna be grabbing mine
Johnny dig your grave tomorrow, but I'm just plain old digging in
I don't have time for all of this, cause I'm just waiting for the Civil War!


SNFU
"Heavy Menu"
Who is that new waitress
He wants her on his plate
Everytime he sees her
He just has to masturbate
He wants her luscious breasts
On the end of his fork
But all the menu offers
Is chicken, beef and pork

But I don't want that girl to be mine
For breakfast lunch or suppertime
She's not a sex object but a person too!
I know that she's not on the menu.

He wants to eat her body
Just like a plate of fries
And suck out all the gravy
That seeps into her thighs
He says he loves that girl
That couldn't be more true
Because everytime he speaks to her
He comes into his soup.


DOGGY STYLE
"Pre Teens"
