krotix There is something to be said for the missing ingredient in much of Punk today, though there are still plenty of fired up bands and fans

The ingredient is anger at being treated as a statistic/ number/ a nothing and this Michigan band harkens to Iggy/ MC5 and dare I say Negative Approach.

This is Punk not HC, but it comes right up to the wire defining both. Favorite track: A man ain't a man to the man so f*ck the man.

Track Name: We stand defiant
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!

We stand defiant against the fucking state
We stand defiant against their fucking hate
Kicked in the head, dragged across the ground
Locked in a cage, attacked by their hounds

We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!

We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!

We stand defiant against the fucking cops
We stand defiant against the fucking pigs
We stand defiant against the fucking state
We stand defiant against their fucking hate

We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
We stand, we stand defiant!
Track Name: Shot down
Hands up in the air
They don't really care
Hands up in the air
They don't really care
You're shot down

Hand up in the air
They don't really care
Hands up in the air
They don't really care
You're shot down

There's fire on the streets
And fire in our heart
The more that we submit
The more they give us shit

Police state, police state, police state, I hate you
Police state, police state, police state, I hate you
Police state, police state, police state, I hate you
Police state, police state, police state, I hate you

The more that we submit
The more they give us shit
The more that we submit
The more they give us shit
The more that we submit
The more they give us shit
The more that we submit
The more they give us shit
Track Name: Out of control
I feel like paper in a storm
Without face without form
Moving faster than a Maserati
I'm higher than a kamikaze

It's out of control

We’ve been handed out defeat
Just like a child given out a treat
All your talk of law and order
That’s just fear and paranoia

It's out of control

When life has worried you to death
And it's stolen your last breathe
Utopias in garbage dumpsters
Man made natural disasters
Track Name: A man ain't a man to the man so f*ck the man
That motherfucker puts his hands on you
that motherfucker asked you where you going
that motherfucker ask you a question
Then he tells you to shut the fuck up

As the beat goes on and on and on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on and on upside your fucking head
As the beat goes on and on and on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on and on upside your fucking head

A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
I said a man I need a man to the man so fuck the man
that motherfucker brutalize
then stand in court telling lies
you've been placed under suspicion
because dumb motherfuckers believe superstition

A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
I said a man I need a man to the man so fuck the man
I said it once before but you all seem to love repetition
A man and a man to the man so fuck the man

A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
A man and a man to the man so fuck the man
Track Name: Dance dance dance
You can't keep me in this cage
because my mind is full of rage
And I really just don't give a damn
to be your sacrificial lamb
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
Prepare for the zombie apocalypse,
while living off others tips
Climbed a mountain just to dig a hole,
to bury that soul that you stole
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
Bored to the point total contempt
A repetition from the previous attempt
When all your lovers have let you down
You'll find all the fuckers never disappoint
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
I wanna dance dance dance, then dance some more
Listen to the sound of my burning soul, fired up on the rock n roll
Listen to the sound of my burning soul, fired up on the rock n roll
Listen to the sound of my burning soul, fired up on the rock n roll
Listen to the sound of my burning soul, fired up on the rock n roll
Track Name: Now here, nowhere
Today I might be dirty
Tomorrow I’ll be dirt
You need someone to blame
You better get religious
Don’t want to hear this
I don’t want to hear that
I don’t want to hear you
All that we used to do
You don’t need tattoos
When you’ve got scars
And I don’t need you
When I’ve got self respect
Don’t want to hear this
I don’t want to hear that
I don’t want to hear you
All that we used to do
I’m now here, nowhere
Stop me, stop me stop me now
Stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before, before
I thought you might just be the one
The one who’d fucking save me
Track Name: It's alright now
It's all right now, all right all right now

There's blood in the street,and a man in a sheet
Click that button, alt-right , delete
Systematic blood and gore
They're feeding babies to the dogs of war
A slight of hand, up the sleeve
Another religion that I can't believe
America America
There are no snowflakes during the long hot summer

And it's alright alright alright alright
All right all right all right all right

It's alright now
It's alright now
It's alright now
It's alright

I was disillusioned by my own illusions
Finding safety in my own confusion
America America
Blind politicians with their lies wide open
Things fall apart, the center can't hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
The future ain't so hard to read
To a man who holds a history book
Track Name: Up is down
Time might kill me
but it won't defeat me
My face is smiling
While my soul is crying

Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone is broken up
Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone all fucked up

I'm looking in the mirror
A weapon of mass construction
They try to tear me down
Give me their frustration

Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone is broken up
Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone all fucked up

I'm looking right through you
You're the stranger I use to know
Stop looking forward to the past
It was never really all that great

Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone is broken up
Up is down and down is up and everything is all screwed up
Up is down and down is up and everyone all fucked up

All the poems have been written
All the cigarette smoked
When you're lying in the gutter
Remember to look up at the stars
Track Name: The rise of the worms
We are the worms born from dead societies
Faceless tragedies, pantomimed comedies
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
We fixate upon the flickering neon lights
And the sound of the drum
We start revolutions on our days off from work
As we starve to death where the food is really good

All this fear all this hate, living in a warfare state
Profits for the war machines , austerities for the poor
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
We fixate upon the flickering neon lights
And the sound of the drum
We start revolutions on our days off from work
As we starve to death where the food is really good

We are the thoughts of beautiful insanity
Drab reality to the fashionable apathy
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
Yes yes, it's the rise of the worms
We fixate upon the flickering neon lights
And the sound of the drum
We start revolutions on our days off from work
As we starve to death where the food is really good

We starve to death where the food is really good
We starve to death where the food is really good
We starve to death where the food is really good
We starve to death where the food is really good
Track Name: Anger and rage
Anger and rage
I’m locked in a cage
shrapnel sharp words
existence’s absurd
I’m out of my head
I should be in bed
I scream and I shout
A total freak out

We are the madness of our given reality
Artificial intelligence and real stupidity
Do you know what I mean?

A radical peace
A militant love
Over the years
I’ve grown into a child

Love is too great for human emotion
Dying of thirst in the middle of the ocean
Do you know what I mean

We are the madness of our given reality
Artificial intelligence and real stupidity
Do you know what I mean ?

I’m out of my head
I should be in bed
I scream and I shout
A total freak out

All my rainbows are in black and white
They thought I was crazy but it’s just gaslight
Do you know what I mean ?
Track Name: It goes 'round
I’m in love with the wilderness
The wilderness of broken glass
Adrenaline at full throttle
And the green fairies inside this bottle

It keeps going round and round round and round

I can’t sit through this conversation
It just lowers my low expectations
We never know who to call
When everything goes seriously wrong

And I’m always awake while the city’s asleep
Always duck while others leap
The speechless crime of the mime
The abstract persistence of time

It keeps going round and round round and round

I can’t sit through this conversation
it just lowers my low expectations
We never know who to call
When fist fucking goes seriously wrong
