Chorus:
Pogo pogo with the Bristles
Pogo pogo with the Bristles
Pogo pogo with the Bristles
Pogo pogo with the Bristles

We are the Bristles x4

Chorus:
Track Name: Punx and Skins
Punx and Skins
The new breed stand there tall and proud
To the cause they are vowed
No matter what our critics say
Punk the movement is here to stay

Chorus:
Punx and skins are here to stay
'cause we don't care what the assholes say
Punx and skins are here to stay
'cause we don't care what the assholes say

"He's a violent stupid lout"
They've no idea what the hell it's about
They try to explain but they ain´t got a clue
Let's all hope that they never do

Chorus:

So on we go, still oppressed
Trying to stop our lives being messed
We'll carry on making our noise
With crack aways and punk and skin

Chorus:
Chorus:
Track Name: Third World War
3rd World War
Everywhere you look it's just the same
From north to south you see a fucking war
They say it's fun to kill someone
But we have no chance in a third world war

Chorus:
3rd world war
3rd world war is coming soon
3rd world war
3rd world war is coming soon
Maybe in the afternoon

USA and Russia have their nuclear weapon
They'll kill us all if we don't fight back
I don't wanna be a soldier, I don't wanna fight for my country
I don't wanna see the whole shit blow up

Chorus:

Fuck the wars
Fuck the wars
Fuck the wars
Fuck the wars

Repeat second verse

Chorus:
Track Name: Don't Give Up
Don't Give Up
Punkrockers and skinheads
We must be together
Fight against the government
Not with each other

Punkrockers and skinheads
We must be together
Fight against the government
Not with each other

Chorus:
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up
Don't give up
Don't give up the fight

Punkrockers and skinheads
Don't get fooled by the bosses
Don't give them money or power
Just give them nothing

Chorus:

Punkrockers and skinheads
Do something against the unemployment
Do something now
Before it's too late

Chorus:
Track Name: Sick
Sick
Electric meters gone again
No money on the side
I feel my temper rising fast
I'm just like Jekyll and Hyde

I wanna smash a roller
I wanna steal some dough
I wanna go to a polling boot
And just vote no

Chorus:
We ain't Nazis, we ain't reds
Just ordinary people
Sick, sick, sick of being mislead

Bohman throw us on the dole
Another fucking statistic
But Palme ain't much better
He makes me more sick

Palme is supposed to be our man
The voice of working class
But he all line his pocket
And sit on his fat arse

Chorus:

Electric meters gone again
No money on the side
I feel my temper rising fast
I'm just like Jekyll and Hyde

'cept this time it's no party
This time it's for real
This time the working classes
Will show the bosses how we feel

Chorus:

You lead us up the garden path
To poverty and hunger
But you can only push us so far
And we ain't going under...

We ain't going under
We ain't going under
We ain't going under
We ain't going under

Chorus:
