TT (the wizard) & Doris, Didi of Sonar Music Productions for digital transfer of the original 24-track-analog-tape


released February 1, 1993

Title track is a deviance from their standard 'Raw High-Speed Hardcore' attack. Slower, more melodic, longer, everything they're usually not - it works, though, definitely a nice change of pace. The flip is more what they've become known for - manic, ferocious thrash. Two originals and a SIEGE cover - what more could you ask for?
(TM, MRR #120, May 1993)

Track Name: You're an Asshole
Try to put your fucking marks
On each and everything
Brand us, deny us
You're an asshole

You try to be our master
Decide between good and waste
Brand us, deny us
You're an asshole

And I don't care at all

Gentle but decisive
Firm and silent
Some cruel smile
From some handsome backstabbers

And you keep doing what you think you've got to do
Let us all pass the ramp, get selected, a few get through
God bless the almighty, the editor and his friends
Please, bring us down, make us an end

Hush, hush, get us under
Ground's still turned up, six feet under
Burn your mark, burn our flesh
Don't put it off any longer
Hype yourself, ban the minor
Take that "crucial" step
Speechless, surprised, but not infamous
We await to get checked
Track Name: Bad Seed Grows Fine
See them march the streets
See their boots do the beat
See the wave breaking loose
See the way the mob did choose

Bad seed grows fine
More or less
It's in all of us
So see the signs

Bad seed grows fine
Society paralysed
Seems might makes right
So see the signs

Bad seed grows fine
Youth's gone rough
Streets get tough
So see the signs

We're moving right
So see the signs
Try to look behind
And search for reasons why
Bad seed grows fine
Track Name: Shame
Newborn babies on the list of death
Women, children shot in the neck

Another dozen gone - whom does it bother?
Another thousand gone - tell me who bothers?

You've seen the detention camps
People shot and starved to death
Bearded Cetniks, their bloody grin
I call them insects, not human beings

Some day it will be time for them to pay
They'll get drowned in their own blood some day

I bow to those in reverence
I bow to those in shame
To those who struggle for their lives
While we still wonder who's to blame

I bow in anger
I bow in hate
Death is what they've chosen
So death shall be their fate
