Track Name: Unemployed 83
Unemployed 83
You were always reminding me about how stupid I was
But whatever you said I didn't give a toss
You promised me a proper job and a proper pay
But when I joined the union, you sacked me

You were giving me orders, do this and do that
I was working me sick while you were getting fat
You were the boss and I was your slave
And you were always counting the money
That you made

Chorus:
Ain't got no job, ain't got no money
Do you really think that's so funny?
You were giving orders what to do
but now I'm thru with you, fuck you
I'm so useless, I'm so worthless
So now I'm unemployed
I'm so useless, I'm so worthless
So now I'm unemployed

You were giving me orders, do this and do that
I was working me sick while you were getting fat
You were the boss and I was your slave
And you were always counting the money
That you made

Chorus:

Sometimes I'd like to kick in your brain
'Cause all your orders were driving me insane
Now I no longer take more of your crap
And I didn't give a damn when you got me sacked

Chorus:
Track Name: War Heroes
War Heroes
Can you hear them fighting, not so far away?
Doesn't it feel frightening?
They're going to reach you the very next day

Chorus:
People pay with their lives
Tho' there is no reason why
People pay with their lives
Tho' there is no reason why
War Heroes
War Heroes

You know you're gonna kill
You know you're gonna die
I know it makes you ill
But you never wondered why

Chorus:

Can you hear your baby scream?
When they tell her that you're dead
That wasn't a part of her dream
A bullet in your head

Chorus:
Track Name: That's Life
That's Life
Every day is just the same
Always someone who tries to give me the blame
No matter what I do, no matter what I say
It's always the same thing anyway

Chorus:
They're trying to make me small
They're trying to make me crawl
And I, I don't belong
No I, I don't belong
That's right, I don't belong
That's life, I don't belong
At all

Don't do this, don't do that
It's always me who takes the crap
My girlfriends crying, my mothers begging
It makes no different what I'm saying

Chorus:

I don't belong to you
You don't belong to me
I don't belong to anyone
So fuck off and let me be

Out somewhere having fun
They're telling me to shut it down
Why are they always picking on me?
I just wished they'd let me be

Chorus:

Playing music, having a good time
My neighbours want me to turn it down
They hate me and my style
And they hope I'll move away

Chorus:
Track Name: Give Peace A Chance
Give Peace a Chance
All countries in the world says they're for peace
But why do they all prepare for war

Chorus:
So we must give peace a chance today
'cause we don't want a war
We don't want a war

It couldn't be a war
If everyone fucked the armies
And it would be a better world
If we didn't care about weapon

Chorus:

Give peace a chance
Give war no chance
Give peace a chance
Today

They're gonna have to forget peace
Where there is an army
There would be no more poverty
And fat mans disease

Chorus:

Give peace a chance
Give war no chance
Give peace a chance
Today

Chorus:

We don't want a war
We don't want a war
We don't want a war
We don't want a war
Track Name: Why Can't I Be Different?
Why Can't I Be Different?
I don't follow fashion, I don't follow trends
I don't knock about with a bunch of smooth friends
Why can't I be different? Don't wanna be a copy
I just wanna be different 'cause then I can be happy

Chorus:
Why can't I be different? I don't wanna be a clone
Why can't I be different? Go about on my own

Why should I conform to all your stupid rules?
Why should I attend to all your stupid schools?
Why can't I be different? And start up different dressing
But when you labelled subversive you only get oppression

Chorus:

We wanna stop conforming and being the government tools
We wanna change the system 'cause we ain't no ones fools
We should rebel against things that put us down
Well, that's my opinion anyway, my opinion anyway

Chorus:

Chorus:

We must, we must stop
We must, we must stop
We must stop the police violence
We must, we must stop

Most of all I wanna see them dead
Violent society
This has been far too long
And this is a cop hater song

You're only in it for the kill
Violent society
Death or dishonour, first attack
'cause cops, we're gonna fight back

Leather jackets, boots and minds, punks of today
Leather jackets, boots and minds, skins of today

We don't care if you're black and white
We shouldn't really give up the fight
The only structure we gonna see
The only thing they give us is torture

The governments don't tell the truth
Do nothing for the youth, don't tell the truth

Nuclear power is fucking dangerous
It's fucking dangerous for the people
No one can possibly survive
A nuclear accident

Chorus:
We don't need your, we don't want your
We don't need your nuclear power
We don't need your, we don't want your
We don't need your nuclear weapon

Nuclear power is a threat
Against the peace on earth
You say you're against the war
But then you've got the nuclear weapon

Wind, sun and water power is much better
Is much better than nuclear power
Is much better than nuclear power
Wind, sun and water power is much better
Is much better than nuclear power
Is much better than nuclear power

If there's gonna be a nuclear war
It's gonna be the end of the world
It's gonna be the end of the human race

Track Name: Lost Generation
Lost Generation
Lost, lost generation
Ain't got no future in this nation
You, you give us no hope
We are completely irrelevant
Bastards, bastards you say we are
But now, this time you've gone too far
We say, we say what we wanna do
But you don't care, oh fuck you

Chorus:
Lost generation
Lost generation
Lost generation
Lost generation
Ain't got no future

We are, we are, the youth of today
Listen up 'cause we've got something to say
Soon, soon there will be a riot
We'll never surrender, never keep quiet
We say, we say, fuck your rules
This time you have gone too far
We don't, we don't need your laws
Up your arse with them all

Chorus:

You say, you say we ain't too clever
But for that were going to live for ever
Hate, hate society, we ain't to blame, you and me
Future, future, how about that
They treat us like a bunch of fools
We're all together, all unite
All this time, the endless fight

Chorus:

Lost, lost, generation, I got no future in this nation
Lost, lost, generation, I got no future in this nation
Lost, lost, generation, I got no future in this nation
Lost, lost, generation, I got no future in this nation
Ain't got no future in this nation
Ain't got no future in this nation
Ain't got no future in this nation
Ain't got no future in this nation
