Track Name: Performance
Answer this riddle:
What’s both a privilege and a prison?
Chained to the stage
Acting out the roles we've been given

I'm playing the stoic
I'm note perfect
You've only got one line
But they made damn sure you rehearsed it well

Failed males
Fuckin' up, fuckin' up, fuckin' up
Failed males
On the hunt, on the hunt, on the hunt
Failed males
Bloody stumps, bloody stumps, bloody stumps
Failed males
Not enough, not enough, not enough
Track Name: Breach of Trust
Move straight into fear
The corollary is clear

Some rash and hasty bets
A generation in debt

Concern!
Despair!

Well trained to think this WAY
Divide and conquer NOW
Well trained to feel ASTRAY
Ultimate broken VOW

Breach of trust
Breach, breach of trust (x3)

Higher objectives
Changing perspectives

Question the system
Able to listen

You merely sit right there feasting with my sweat
Fatten your paunch, let others' famine to whet

To learn
To overcome

Well trained to feel this WAY
Divide and conquer NOW
Well trained to feel ASTRAY
Ultimate broken VOW

Breach of trust
All I see... this breach of trust
What I feel... this breach of trust
Will not abide this breach of trust
Track Name: Untouchables
Admired for their fame,
Seen as untouchables,
When they're crossing their own lines,
Manipulated press will cry.

Fraud! I wasn't aware!
Abuse! I just wasn't myself!
Narcotics! I swear I'll change!
Murder! It was self-defence!

If going to prison is so soft,
Well why won't you go right there?
‘Cos when you're on the firing line,
You cower like the dog you are!

Fraud! I wasn't aware!
Abuse! I just wasn't myself!
Narcotics! I swear I'll change!
Murder! It was self-defence!

Truth - you're not ready yet
Right choice - one quick to forget
Change - it's not what you expect
Privileged - who owes you respect?

Teenager hacks a website,
His life's destroyed by corporate slime,
For one hundred and forty characters,
Some kid is doing time!

Thrown.
to.
the wolves.
P R Stunts,
Power buys freedom.
Track Name: First Impression
The first is what they say counts
No matter how gaunt
If you could manage not to daunt
I'll follow on your jaunt

DISGUISED: your slime won't stop to stink
OLD MASK: can see through it in just a blink

Wearing ties and expensive suits
Inside the shell you are so cruel
Just don't neglect to wear your 'chute
Your landing might be brutal

Fake teeth, fake smiles,
Dispensing from a pile,
Warm pats, cold hugs,
As slimy as many slugs!

IMPOSTOR: candour does not belong to you
PREPOSTEROUS: you never say the truth

Wolf in tailored clothing
My crying out won't change a thing
Meaningless and a waste of time
Exposing you would be sublime

Nobody else seems to care enough
Rely on the trim, not on the scruff
What if I'd change my dyed thatch
Will you believe me if I report there's a catch?
When the facts don't follow the pledge
I will stash my faith on the highest ledge
You feel so safe and never frown
As long as we won't ALL BUCKLE DOWN!
Track Name: Parasite
Generosity works both ways but you abuse the cause,
Greed is something I won't defend; do you take us all for fools?
Ripping off the poor and needy, well that's OK for you,
I'm sick of your bullshit, money-minded attitude.

You're a parasite!

Grasping fucking parasite, money grabbing scum,
Keeping it at the top, keep us under your thumb,
Every single bastard month your cheque comes through the door,
Addicted to cold cash, you’re always after more.

You're a parasite!

Grasping fucking parasite, money grabbing scum,
Keeping it at the top, keep us under your thumb,
Every single bastard month your cheque comes through the door,
It's the cash that makes you weak, begging on the floor.

You're a parasite!
Track Name: The Real Threat
Call it a threat, create discomfort
The real issue sits surrounded in comfort

So blind I cannot see…
So deaf I cannot hear...

Not from the street, not from the gutter
Hiding in splendour, for what that matters

So blind I cannot see, illusionist!
So deaf I cannot hear, demagogy!

Their class controls by deflecting anger away
Enough with this shame, time to disobey!

You think the class at the top is unchangeable
Things stay the same: corrupt, irreplaceable

Unacceptable!
