Recorded by Sven Vikukel or Christian Odeholm at Maskinen 27-28/2 1984.
Rockin' Rebels Records 001, 1984.

The tracks were recorded in the beginning of 1984. Then the band split up, and got back together again with a new drummer, Groll, since Lankan had joined D.T.A.L. and was no longer available. The record was later released in the autumn. The oi-thing from the first Ep is gone, and the band had moved toward raw punk rock with influences both from the first and the second punk movement.

Track Name: Last Survivors
Last Survivors
In the beginning we we're takin' over
But now you're running 'round being sober
You said to me: it's all a joke
Do you think you're funny? Stupid bloke

The last survivors

Before it was trash and life's a riot
But now you're sitting home and being quiet
Letting the crap just pass by
And never thinking why?

Chorus:
Survival! You and I
Survival! We'll never die
Survival! We'll survive
Survive! We are the last survivors

You say to me I'm acting strange
No use fighting, there'll never be a change
But we'll keep on fighting 'til the end
'cause we've got something to defend

The last survivors

We're proud of what we are and what we're doing
Tho' you mean we're lost in ruin
Listen! We don't care what you say
Our heads held high and we'll survive

Chorus:

So now you've got a descent life
With a proper home and a pretty wife
While I'm wasting my time
Without the lust of being someone

The last survivors

I ain't never gonna settle down
'cause I like the way of messin' around
Ok! You're a winner and I'm a loser
So what the fuck? We ain't got no future

Chorus:
Track Name: 1984 (Reality Today)
1984 (Reality Today)
So the governments they come and go
So what the fuck, it's the same show
So many people blinded by their lies
They haven't seen the reality of today

So the future is an unwritten story
But it's got the power and it's got the glory
I ain't got no future and it's the same for you
So why don't you fuck off, fuck you

Before it was 83, now it's 84
What the fuck I'm living for?
I ain't got no future and it's the same for you
But what the fuck can we do?

Chorus:
1981 wasn't that fun
1982 not a shit for me and you
1983 what's it gonna be in 1984?
Is it worth living for?

The future is an unwritten story
But it's got the power and it's got the glory
It's our future which we ain't control
People in misery and people on the dole

Chorus:

The cold war is here to stay - reality today!
And it's always gonna be that way - reality today!
Until hell break loose - reality today!
It's up to us so you'd better choose - reality today!

So the governments they come and go
So what the fuck, it's the same show
So many people blinded by their lies
They haven't seen the reality of today

Chorus:
Track Name: Never Give Up
Never Give up
Clever people gives me advice
That I've got to cheat to survive
Lies and corruptions all around
Think about it and it gets you down

Chorus:
Never ever, never give up
Never ever, never give up
Stand up and fight

Never stop smashing your head to the wall
Stand up straight tho' you're feeling small
Don't believe when they say you're wrong
Never give up, just keep fighting on

Chorus:

They're treating us just like slaves
We're just some marks in their play
For how much longer can we let them go on that way?
It's about our future but the fight is today

Chorus:
Track Name: Boys will be Boys
Boys will be Boys
We're running wild just for fun
Don't tell us to grow up, shut it down!
Repeat

We're just looking for some action
And always gets the girls attraction

Chorus:
Boys will be boys
Will be boys, will be boys
Always will be
Boys will be boys
Will be boys, will be boys
Always

We're out on the street in the middle of the night
You're jealous on us so you wanna fight
Repeat

We're all messed up and we're havin' fun
So you can never put us down

Chorus:

We're on a party wild as hell
What we're doing you can't tell
Repeat

We just live from day to day
What's the point? We're going to die anyway

Chorus:
