1. Annihilation (Crucifix cover) (2:13)
From dehumanization to arms production,
For the benefit of the nation or its destruction
Power, power, the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand,
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms,
Reject the system dictating the norms
From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation towards its destruction
Power, power, the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand,
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms,
Reject the system dictating the norms
From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation towards its destruction
Power, power, the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand,
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms,
Reject the system dictating the norms
From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten this nation towards its destruction,
It's your choice, your choice, your choice, your choice,
Peace or annihilation
2. Imagine (John Lennon cover) (4:48)
Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...
Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...
You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
(Imagine all the people sharing all the world)
Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
3. (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding (Nick Lowe cover) (5:03)
As I walk on through this wicked world,
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself, Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain, and hatred, and misery?
And each time I feel like this inside,
There's one thing I wanna know,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?
And as I walked on through troubled times,
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes,
So where are the strong?,
And who are the trusted?,
And where is the harmony?,
Sweet harmony
'Cause each time I feel it slipping away,
Just makes me wanna cry,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?
So where are the strong?,
And who are the trusted?,
And where is the harmony?,
Sweet harmony
'Cause each time I feel it slipping away,
Just makes me wanna cry,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?
4. What's Going On (Marvin Gaye cover) (4:53)
Mother, mother,
There's too many of you crying,
Brother, brother, brother,
There's far too many of you dying,
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some loving here today
Father, father,
We don't need to escalate,
You see, war is not the answer,
For only love can conquer hate,
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some loving here today
Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality,
Talk to me, so you can see,
Oh, what's going on,
What's going on,
Yeah, what's going on,
Ah, what's going on,
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong,
But who are they to judge us?,
Simply because our hair is long,
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some understanding here today, Oh
Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality,
Talk to me,
So you can see,
What's going on.
5. Passive (4:09)
Dead as dead can be,” my doctor tells me
But I just can't believe him, ever the optimistic one
I'm sure of your ability to become my perfect enemy
Wake up and face me, don't play dead cause maybe
Someday I will walk away and say, “You disappoint me,”
Maybe you're better off this way
Leaning over you here, cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection of
What you could and might have been
It's your right and your ability
To become…my perfect enemy…
Wake up (we'll catch you) and face me (come one now),
Don't play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I'll (someday I'll) walk away and say, “
You disappoint me,”
Maybe you're better off this way
Maybe you're better off this way
Maybe you're better off this way
Maybe you're better off this way
You're better of this; you're better off this;
Maybe you're better off!
Wake up (can't you) and face me (come on now),
Don't play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I'll (someday I'll) walk away and say,
“You fucking disappoint me!”
Maybe you're better off this way
Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear this
Go ahead and play dead
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
Why can't you turn and face me?
You fucking disappoint me!
Passive aggressive bullshit
6. Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie (Black Flag cover) (2:18)
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
Don't ask what for
Sitting here like a loaded gun,
Waiting to go off,
I've got nothing to do,
But shoot my mouth off
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
Don't ask what for
I know the world's got problems,
I've got problems of my own,
Not the kind that can't be solved,
With an atom bomb
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
Don't ask what for
You know I'm gonna go out,
Get something for my head,
If I keep on doing this,
I'm gonna end up dead
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
Don't ask what for
7. People Are People (Depeche Mode cover) (3:43)
We're different colors,
And different creeds,
And different people,
Have different needs,
It's obvious you hate me,
Though I've done nothing wrong,
I've never even met you,
What could I have done?
People are people so why should it be?
You and I shouldn't get along.
People are people so why should it be?
You should hate me.
You're punching and kicking,
And you're shouting at me,
I'm relying on your common decency,
So far it hasn't surfaced,
But I'm sure it exists,
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist.
I can't understand,
What makes a man,
Hate another man,
Help me understand,
People are people,
So why should it be?,
You and I shouldn't get along,
People are people,
So why should it be,
You Should Hate me
I can't understand,
What makes a man,
Hate another man?,
Help me understand.
8. Freedom of Choice (Devo cover) (2:59)
We're victims of sedition on the open sea.
No one ever said life was free.
Sink, swim, go down with the ship.
Just use your freedom of choice.
I'll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice, freedom of choice.
In ancient Rome
There was a pawn
Who followed along
And watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that he would never be heard.
Freedom of choice
It's what you've got
Freedom of choice
You're given a voice
You don't want it
Seems to be the rule of thumb
Don't be tricked by waht you see
You've got two ways to go
I'll say it again in the land of the free:
Use your freedom of choice, freedom of choice.
Freedom of choice
It's what you've got
Freedom of choice...
In ancient Rome
There was a pawn
Who followed along
And watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that his voice would never be heard.
Freedom of choice
It's what you've got
Freedom from choice
It's what you want.
Freedom of choice -
It's what you've got.
Freedom from choice.
It's what you want.
Freedom from choice
It's what you want.
Freedom from choice.
9. Let's Have a War (Fear cover) (3:28)
There's so many of us,
So many of us,
So many, there's so many, there's so many
Let's have a war,
So you can go and die,
Let's have a war,
We could all use the money,
Let's have a war,
We need the space,
Let's have a war,
Clean out this place
It already started in the city,
Suburbia will be just as easy
Let's have a war,
Jack up the Dow Jones,
Let's have a war,
It can start in New Jersey,
Let's have a war,
Blame it on the middle-class,
Let's have a war,
We're like rats in a cage
It already started in the city,
Suburbia will be just as easy
Let's have a war,
Sell the rights to the networks,
Let's have a war,
Let our wallets get fat like last time,
Let's have a war,
Give guns to the queers,
Let's have a war,
The enemy's within
It already started in the city,
Suburbia will be just as easy
10. Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums (5:36)
Don't fret precious I'm here, step away from the window
Go back to sleep
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils,
See, they don't give a fuck about you, like I do.
Count the bodies like sheep
Count the bodies like sheep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Count the bodies like sheep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
Go back to sleep
Go to sleep [x14]
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums [x2]
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies
And all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive
And a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies
And your choices son
They're one in the same, I must isolate you…
Isolate and save you from yourself …
11. When the Levee Breaks (Memphis Minnie & Kansas Joe McCoy cover) (5:55)
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Thinking about my baby and my happy home,
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
And all these people have no place to stay
Now look here mama what am I to do?,
Now look here mama what am I to do?,
I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to
I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I ain't got nobody, keep the water away
Oh crying won't help you, praying won't do no good,
Oh crying won't help you, praying won't do no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to lose
I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works so hard, to keep the water away
I had a woman, she wouldn't do for me,
I had a woman, she wouldn't do for me,
I'm going back to my used to be
It's a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
It's a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
Gonna leave my baby, and my happy home
12. Fiddle and the Drum (Joni Mitchell cover) (3:06)
And so once again,
My dear Johnny, my dear friend,
And so once again you are fighting us all,
And when I ask you why,
You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall,
Oh, my friend,
How did you come?,
To trade the fiddle for the drum,
You say I have turned,
Like the enemies you've earned,
But I can remember,
All the good things you are,
And so I ask you please,
Can I help you find the peace and the star?,
Oh, my friend,
What time is this?,
To trade the handshake for the fist
And so once again,
Oh, America my friend,
And so once again,
You are fighting us all,
And when we ask you why,
You raise your sticks and cry and we fall,
Oh, my friend,
How did you come,
To trade the fiddle for the drum
You say we have turned,
Like the enemies you've earned,
But we can remember,
All the good things you are,
And so we ask you please,
Can we help you find the peace and the star?,
Oh my friend,
We have all come,
To fear the beating of your drum
