Track Name: Counting Fucks
You swallow my lust and spit out my esteem
And I have touched your lips and absorbed your misery
Now watch me as I walk away, at a pace so staggering
I’ve given you more than you deserve, I don't owe anything

Pretend and dream all you want
This reality might sting a bit
This head of steam is counting up
Counting all the fucks I do not give

You coloured my life with so many shades of black
And I've tidied these memories into burning stacks
Now watch me walk away, at a pace so staggering
Fool me, duel me, break me again, just do what you must

Pretend and dream all you want
This reality might sting a bit
This head of steam is counting up
Counting all the fucks I do not give
Track Name: Dead Worm
Why do these things always happen to me?
I was born, things went wrong, thus concludes my story
Life's a beach; tide come in and you drown
But I won't let that shit bring me down

I'm a dead worm, I'm a dead worm
Pit Pit, tell me why I'm a dead boss worm

I’m at the point where I don't have the will to care.
At least I've got my friends and a smile to wear.
Life knocks me down but I always rise.
I don't find comfort behind suits and ties.

I'm a dead worm, I'm a dead worm
Pit Pit, tell me why I'm a dead boss worm
Track Name: Payroll Call
To not earn a dime is to step out of line
Save yourself the trouble and commit yourself a crime
To listen to the master will not save you from disaster
Take yourself away from the grime and end your pantomime
You can starve on the dole or you can live in a cage
Or get the worst of both worlds scraping minimum wage
Stuck as a sheep in this modern age
You should stand up to your enemies, let them know your rage

We won't answer the payroll call
We'd rather sleep in the day
We won't answer the payroll call
We'd sooner starve and wait

Not looking for a job doesn't mean that I'm not motivated
Taking cues from bosses makes me feel like I've been automated
Finding a job will send you mad
A life of crime will turn you bad
Choosing between a cage and dreams and you will know that you've been had

Lack of job is seen as treason
Seen as you have no reason
Always seen as sleazin'
But life on the dole be breezin'
The government has you fearing
And welfare deemed endearing
And the workfare’s always nearing
So rebellion keeps appearing

We won't answer the payroll call
We'd rather sleep in the day
We won't answer the payroll call
We'd sooner starve and wait

We won’t! Answer!
We won’t! Answer!
We won’t! Answer!
We won’t! Answer!

We won't answer the payroll call
We'd rather sleep in the day
We won't answer the payroll call
We'd sooner starve and wait
Track Name: Spaceman
Read the guide to life and he threw it away (away)
Turned his back on earth with nothing left to say (to say)
'cos we don't authorities or leaders from minorities
The leader of his people will not believe their eyes when they see a

(Spaceman) flying away
down here on earth, you don't see this every day
escaping the hypocrisy has always been my destiny
Speed over time accelerating away, 'cos he's a

(Spaceman) He’s flying away
(Spaceman) Flying into, outer space
(Spaceman) Finally gonna, fly away (he’s flying away)

Stared into the void and he made the call
Gonna make a paradise for us all
No currency, religion or leader to name
Take these lessons that i've learned in a world that doesn't change

(spaceman) livin' it up
Where people have no limits and their minds are never stuck
Where when morals are broken, only culprits to blame
My life plans set in stone and I'm here to stay

(Spaceman) He’s flying away
(Spaceman) Flying into, outer space
(Spaceman) Finally gonna, fly away (he’s flying away)
Track Name: No Means No
So she asked for it because she's had mastopexy?
Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought consent was sexy
Don't sit there and announce that 'people should respect me'
When you say ' I forced it because he or she wouldn't let me'
Fuck rape apologists with their victim blaming
I have no time for cunts who are slut shaming
Wearing short skirts don't mean you can oppress me
Whoever you are, you need permission to undress me


You're gonna get what you deserve
We’re gonna make you fucking hurt
Leave you bleeding on the floor
Ensure that you will rape no more
And I hope you get the point, and I'm sorry to disappoint
‘Cause no means fucking no

The least you deserve is a rusted castration
A sick procedure to match your twisted reputation
Now I would prefer full body mutilation
But death would be to much of a freeing liberation
Rape survivors deserve emancipation
From these wretched memories causing social limitation
If you support Com Delta and ignore accusations
Then you are scum your ignorance is blatant


You're gonna get what you deserve
We’re gonna make you fucking hurt
Leave you bleeding on the floor
Ensure that you will rape no more
And I hope you get the point, and I'm sorry to disappoint
‘Cause no means fucking no

You are going to get what you deserve
‘CAUSE NO MEANS FUCKING NO
