Track Name: We Don't Need Your Respect
All our lives looked down upon, frowned upon, and cast aside
but it never meant nothing, took it all in stride
Kept our heads held high as the days rolled by
flap your gums all you want, you can’t hurt our pride
What you see is what you get, we got nothing to hide
not looking for respect our admiring eyes
finding strength from within from the flame inside

(chorus)
Sick of dirty looks being thrown our way
Better let it out if you got something to say
Like it or not we're here to stay
we don't need no ones respect
think your shit don't stink, look down your nose
had enough, had enough I'm about to blow
ticking time bomb, let my rage explode
we don't need no ones, no we don't need your respect

Stick to ourselves don't socialize, won't buy into your games or your two faced lies
false fucking gestures are what i despise
don't need your respect, don't see eye to eye
Middle finger flipped up for the world to see
not giving a fuck what you think of me
never fit the mold, why start today?
love us or hate us, it don't matter either way
Track Name: Plight Of The Working Man
They wouldn't last a day walking in my boots, don't see the side of life i see
Never had to work a day with their hands cos they bought themselves a degree
They make the rules and twist the laws, while we pay their salary
Our tax dollars, blood, sweat, and tears pay for their lives of luxury
Luxury! Luxury!

Upper class aristocrats think that they know best
You decide for the working man but you don't live like the rest
Don't you fucking tread on me, there's nothing that i owe you
You've had it easy all your life; you never had a fucking clue

Vote to close the trade schools down, who needs a skilled labor force?
Move the factories out to boot, we're running down a dead end course.
As the gap grows between us and them they're grinding us into the ground.
But try to spend a day in our boots and tell me what you've found

Upper class aristocrats think that they know best
You decide for the working man but you don't live like the rest
Don't you fucking tread on me, there's nothing that i owe you
You've had it easy all your life, you never had a fucking clue
Wouldn't last a day walking in my boots
Wouldn't last a day walking in my boots
Wouldn't last a day walking in my boots
Wouldn't last a day walking in my boots
Upper class aristocrats think that they know best
You decide for the working man but you don't live like the rest
Don't you fucking tread on me, there's nothing that i owe you
You've had it easy all your life, you never had a fucking
Track Name: Liberty or Death
In the name of freedom we stormed the beaches of Normandy
Fought to free the oppressed and protect our sovereignty
Brought the fascist scum to their knees in a land so far away
60 years later they infiltrated our home, we fight them still today

Red white n blue, liberty or death- Proud and Fucking Strong!
Fought and died for our land- Carry the spirit on!

Jefferson drafted the constitution and gave us liberty
Now politicians are splitting up the fabric of our country
The spirit of freedom rises from the ashes to return once again
Our country must come back together and take the fight to them

Red white n blue, Liberty or death- Proud and fucking strong!
Fought and died for our land- Carry the spirit on!

Even when the media vilified and slandered the names of our veterans
We still raise the colors and send our regards to all of them
They fought and died for our nation, they knew what was at stake
This is our way to honor them and show our pride in the USA

Red white n blue, Liberty or death- Proud and fucking strong!
Fought and died for our land- Carry the spirit on!
Track Name: Skinhead Rock'N'Roll
Can't recall what I did last night
just slurring words and blurry sight
more beer than blood running through my veins
got an empty wallet and a pocket full of change
got a black eye and a knot in my head
drank so much I should be dead
can't figure out where the hell I was
or how I drove home that fucking buzzed

Skinhead rock n roll

Puke on my boots and a chipped-ass tooth
my body's so stiff I can barely move
torn up knuckles and something's broke
and I reek like cigarette smoke
but I'm pretty sure that I had a good time
and took some bullshit off my mind
guess I'll wait ‘til the calls roll in
to hear about the trouble that I got myself in

skinhead rock n roll
Track Name: By My Side
Rollin' together through the fair and bad weather
got my crew by my side now for worse or for better
whatever you need I'll be there through it all
Through the fights and the brawls, I'll be there when you fall

When the times are tough
When the seas are rough
When you're down and out
Stand by my side and I'll stand by you

We've been through the years, through the laughter and tears
when the shit hits the fan, boy, we don't show no fear
flip the bird to the world as we mob it through life
Through the highs and the lows, through the struggle and strife

When the times are tough
When the seas are rough
When you’re down and out
Stand by my side and I'll stand by you

Raise up your glass boys, cause this one's for you
Knock back those beers as we drink to the crew
We’re to back you, if your here to stay
We’ll smash through the problems that life throws our way

When the times are tough
When the seas are rough
When you’re down and out
Stand by my side and I'll stand by you
Track Name: Unemployed
Unemployment numbers are growing everyday
They'll take your job away from you and you won't have a say
They got no funds to keep you on but the boss man gets a raise
They'll give you half of what you made but you still got bills to pay

Unemployed- Same fucking song
Unemployed- No i ain't wrong
Unemployed- They won't spend
Unemployed- When's in gonna end?

California's goin' broke, job market's standing still
You can find work if you try but It'l barely pay the bills
Who's fighting for the working man? Who's looking out for us?
Outsourcing's killed our right to work, there's no one we can trust

Unemployed- Same fucking song
Unemployed- No i ain't wrong
Unemployed- They won't spend
Unemployed- When's in gonna end?

Unemployed again
When's in gonna end?
Track Name: Break The Mold
Got nothing but contempt for the world around me
these kids got nothing to say
apathy and laziness it fucking astounds me
there's no work ethic these days
excuses and blame just passing the buck
claiming no fault of their own
make your mark and seize the day
don't be a waste of flesh and bone

It's your life
Take control
It's your life
Stand up and break the mold


Got no passion and they've got no drive
there's noting that makes them tick
It's the "gimmie" generation with their hands stretched out
constantly begging for shit
man up motherfucker, step up to the plate
open your eyes and see
don't expect anyone to make your fate
cause nothing in life comes free

It's your life
Take control
It's your life
Stand up and break the mold
Track Name: No Thanks
What the fuck do you want from me?
I'm giving it all i got
I'm Just a human being
Whether you like it or not

Everything i do is wrong
been beating myself up for so long

Nothing that i could ever do
will ever be good enough for you
the pressure, the stress can't be subdued
this negative mental attitude

sick and tired, so fed up
spent so long just stuck in this rut

Try so hard to no avail, my patience is wearing thin
effort backfires, destined to fail. these walls are closing in
frustration takes its toll as the pressure starts to rise
so tired of trying to please you all, I've got this tension locked inside

Positively negative
I've got nothing left to give
Track Name: My Friend, My Brother
They tried to end your life that night, They took aim had you in their sights
Filled your body full of slugs, too scared to fight, bitch made thugs
Loss of blood, too weak to walk, the cops outlined your boy in chalk
In the game of life they tried to cheat, your blood still stains that cold, hard street

My friend, my brother- Through the years we stood by each other

A year to date since that fateful night, i hoped and prayed that you'd be alright
Thoughts of revenge running through my mind, dwelling on unforgivable crimes
one count of murder and one attempt, they're doing life, with no repent
Now you've healed you'll carry on, the scars remain but you walk on strong

My friend, my brother- Through the years we stood by each other

You can't kill what won't die, My friend, Forever by your side
Respect for you I'll always keep, My brother 'til we're 6 feet deep
Moved away, maybe for the best, now you can get a good nights rest
Put the past behind and start anew, these streets they were no good for you
Took from you so many years, returned you nothing but pain and tears
Now's your chance to set things straight, a brand new start and a fresh, clean slate
Track Name: Chin Up
Life ain't always sunshine and you have seen better days
Times are tough, you've had enough, just wanna break away
Feel so damn frustrated, nothing falls in place
The trouble that you've been through bears its mark upon your face

Never let this life we live get the best of you- Chin up!
Just play the game for all it's worth in everything you do- Chin up!
Throughout all the struggle keep your head up high- Chin up!
Fuck them all, they ain't worth shit, you've always got your pride- Chin up!

I know it ain't easy when the chips are down
The odds are all against you and your getting kicked around
The days are long and tiresome, they never seem to end
But just passed the dark days there's a light around the bend

Never let this life we live get the best of you- Chin up!
Just play the game for all it's worth in everything you do- Chin up!
Throughout all the struggle keep your head up high- Chin up!
Fuck them all, they ain't worth shit, you've always got your pride- Chin up!
Track Name: Down For Life
I've seen friends become brothers just to walk away
Hung up their boots and turned their backs, never thought i'd see the day
Some did time and some did drugs, others moved out of town
Some got bored, grew out their hair, and turned the lifestyle down

Here to stay, committed to the life, we live this everyday
In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!
Here to stay, we're down for life! we life this everyday
In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!

So many heads we used to have said that they were true
A couple years on down the road now where the fuck are you?
We're still here n we still rep, fly our colors loud and proud
No matter what our numbers were we always stood our ground

Here to stay, committed to the life, we live this everyday
In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!
Here to stay, we're down for life! we life this everyday
In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!
Down for life!

Now we are the ones who are left, we're diehards til the end
For us this is a way of life, never a fucking trend
Some kids couldn't hack it, we live this every day
Skinhead is our way life, we're here to fucking stay

Here to stay, committed to the life, we live this everyday In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!
Here to stay, we're down for life! we life this everyday
In this for the long haul, skinheads rule Ok!
Down for life!
