Track Name: The Bitter End (explicit)
They're coming for you my darlin'
They're coming for you my friend
They're coming to do what they promised
So let this be the bitter end

They came with tongues of liars
They came with words of hate
They came to keep us divided
But we won't accept that fate

They're coming for you my darlin'
They're coming for you my friend
They're coming to take what they wanted
So let this be the bitter end

They sold your time by the hour
They tried to sell of your health
They'd sell your soul for that power
And who controls all that wealth

They're coming for you my darlin'
They're coming for you my friend
They're coming to do what they promised
So let this be the bitter end

So fuck them all, let them control
They know not what they do
As it burns we'll stand back laughing
And scream Fuck all of you

They're coming for you my darlin'
They're coming for you my friend
They're coming to do what they promised
So let this be the bitter end
Track Name: Nuke Song
Mutually assured destruction is a goddamn lie
Nuclear deterrents fail, the second one hits the sky.
Revenge pure and simple, Murder in the first degree
Should we threaten millions of people
To prove don't front with me?

So give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
Give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
But I'd still never drop a bomb.

Multi-lateral disarmament can be achieved.
Probably not in my life time but a man can dream.
I ain't talking about defence. Just how far we'll go.
And I ain't ever listening to those that dropped them not so long ago

So give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
Give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
But I'd still never drop a bomb.

All empires will burn and fall
We the people don't need a war
All the empire will burn and fall
We the people don't need a war

So give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
Give up the Nukes we don't need them.
Take that money to the people feed them
If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong.
But I'd still never drop a bomb.
