Track Name: The Best Words
and in a landslide
you're supposed to win
and you're not supposed to complain
why's it hard for me to explain?

is it that hard to know
what it's like for us
neverending losers in life
who do all the work for you?

millions voted for me, but billions voted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words

americans voted for me, but traitors opted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words

make me great again

she was a cancer
that we had to cut out
a mutation of the american dream
which is not to have your health

only 3 million
it's not that many
if they disappeared without trace
would it count against me now?

millions voted for me, but billions voted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words

americans voted for me, but traitors opted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words
bigly bop a wop do-doo

millions voted for me, but billions voted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words

americans voted for me, but traitors opted for the enemy

i have all the greatest words
i have all the bestest words
bigly bop a wop do-doo
Track Name: Never Clever Ever
lost my memory, remember 10/11
let's add it all up, it's never clever ever

up in my tower, it's made of ivory
and a little bribery

what do you mean i called putin a good guy?
we haven't played golf

never clever ever, i can't be the one
puppet of the kremlin, just a hired gun

never clever ever, always be outdone

never clever ever

don't cover it up, i want the world to know
you lie all the time
it's never clever ever

don't fuck it up now

i didn't want it, but now i have it so
you're gonna pay

never clever ever, i can't be the one
pulling all the purse strings, i'm a bastard son

never clever ever, i can't be the one

never clever ever

never clever ever, killing all the fun
sucking on big business, fucking everyone

never clever ever, north korea's won
isis on the upswing, fucked in the long run

nazis in the white house, brains are in the bin
lies are the new black now, orange anakin

never clever ever, evil never wins

never clever ever
Track Name: Bannon (The Burninator)
we've counted all the votes
discounted anecdotes
looks like you lost it in a landslide

but we prepared for this
cut thousands off the list
gerrymandered borders and lied to them all

it doesn't matter how
we have the power now
we're gonna keep it and burn it all do-wn

dismantle women's rights
red carpet, parasites
suckling the blood of crown

bannon

i don't care what you think
kool-aid's a normal drink
this isn't doublethink, it's tri-ple

let's bet a dollar bill
soma's a normal pill
it doesn't make you ill - just a cripple

it doesn't matter how
we have the power now
we're gonna keep it and burn it all do-wn

fuck the ambivalence
i wanna be violent
don't care if it's a ghost town

bannon


it doesn't matter how
we have the power now
we're gonna keep it and burn it all do-wn

crush the insurgency
this is an emergency
trust in the disharmony

bannon
Track Name: Punch a Nazi
if you want to punch a Nazi i won't stop you
but there better be a bloody good reason
that we can't rely on good-old fashioned treason
and just kill the source of all this thought disease

this country's armed, but none have the guts

and we sing la la la la la la la la all day
and la la la la la la la la all night

cutting off the head of a regime can't win
when the truth's alternative and fake news is in

and we sing la la la la la la la la all day
and la la la la la la la la all night
Track Name: Blemish Be Gone
tonight
i have a blemish
that won't be there next time i wear
pyjamas, and go to bed

by then
i will have cut you off
and in the pain, i will remain
determined to see you go

i don't know why i took so long
it's not like you made me strong

i hate you
so begone

i don't know why i took so long
it's not like you made me strong

i hate you
i want you
so gone

these eyes
will never forget
the awkward frames, the side-on gaze
the knife, the credit spent

i'm thirty-six and eighteen
it is so long, so long ago
and now, i want you gone
now i hate you

i don't know why i took so long
it's not like you made me strong

i hate you
so begone

i don't know why i took so long
it's not like you made me strong

i hate you
i want you
out of my life

never come back
stay away, don't
come back

never come back
stay away, don't
come back

never come back
stay away, don't
come back

never come back
stay away, don't
come back

i hate you
so begone
and don't come back
Track Name: Idiot on TV
we have a duty to fight
we have a mandate to march
we had a glimpse of the night
we're gonna fight off the dark
it's not a matter of if
but where, when and how

this time it's gonna be ours

just like a surgical knife
and ancient carnivores
i've never taken a life
you better run for yours
it's not a matter of if
but where, when and how

this time it's gonna be ours

listen to us
you cannot beat the mob
hear what they have to say
you need another job

be what you used to be
idiot on TV

we have a duty to fight
we have a mandate to march
we had a glimpse of the night
we're gonna fight off the dark
it's not a matter of if
but where, when and how

this time it's gonna be ours

dig under pitiful walls
kick over portcullis doors
burn the confederate flag
kill off the dinosaurs
the evolution is here
and the extinction is near

this time it's gonna be yours

listen to us
you cannot beat the mob
hear what they have to say
you need another job

be what you used to be
idiot on TV
Track Name: You Have Been Lied To
here it is
here it goes again
hear the lie detector bing
open up
open up its mouth
and let the lies come out

if we don't let it get to us
they won't exist

have you been lied to?

rip it out
rip it out again
cut off all its tongue and stab it dead

poke it in
twist the knife again
cut the head off medusa

if we don't let it get to us
they won't exist

have you been lied to?

no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have been lied to
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have been lied to

listen up
open up your ears
there's a world outside brietbart i hear
colour in
colour in again
tweet it with a capital SAD again

if we don't let it get to us
they won't exist

have you been lied to?

no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have been lied to
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have
no i don't think you have been lied to
Track Name: Are You Feeling Stupid?
when he said he was out to ruin the lives of anyone who crossed him
was that when you thought, hang on - what is this madman capable of doing?

never putting the racists in their place
pushing hicks to cut off their own noses
pissing off the republican base
but not the motherfuckers in the G O P

are you feeling duped?
are you feeling stupid?

was it when he, said yeah, nukes - have em! was that when you thought, hang on now?
or was it when he booked a hotel - and what went on I can't say now.

never putting supremacists down
saying shit on Twitter we can't believe
pissing off the republican base
but not the motherfuckers in the G O P

are you feeling duped?
are you feeling stupid?

are you feeling misled?
are you feeling stupid?

are you feeling misled?
are you feeling stupid?
are you feeling stupid?
Track Name: Black Site
catacombs for the remains of a dream
black site
dead again in sepulchure, there's a theme
black site

truth is not how you connect to the base
black site
rush again through all the orders apace
black site

and so we can't be held to account or deja vu

hold 'em offshore 'til they forget the taste
black site
of fascism, of religion, of the main course
sunlight

and so we can't be held to account or live up to you
Track Name: Waiting for Armageddon (Kamikaze Privateer)
holed up in a hideaway
the billionaire waits for a sign that it's alright
resident, citizen (paid in full)
nothing we can do but wait for armageddon

if you don't want me
too bad, I won't leave
i don't need money
i want a way to disbelieve

resident, citizen (paid in full)
there's nothing like a rich right-winger to do my head in

if you don't want me
too bad, I won't leave
i don't need money
i want a way to disbelieve

so when the bombs come falling down
stay safe with us in our playground
we call it home when you're not here
you kamikaze privateer

so when the bombs come falling down
stay safe with us in our playground
we call it home when you're not here
you're no real kiwi

and

if you don't want me
too bad, I won't leave
i don't need money
i want a way to disbelieve
Track Name: Executive Order
and if you expect me to obey
think again, you fuck

ever since inauguration day
i've been Mexican

you can't tell me what to do, can you?
sounding like a man with a kazoo
signing laws you haven't even read
stick it up your arse and say thank you

the benefit of a philosopher-king is light
especially when the philosophy is alt-right

tiny hands can't build a border wall
to keep me at bay
you can't tell me what to do, can you?
sounding like a man with a kazoo
signing laws you haven't even read
stick it up your arse and say thank you

the benefit of a philosopher-king is light
especially when the philosophy is outright wrong
Track Name: Bowling Green Massacre
darkest before the dawn
so we should carry on

coldest before the day
takes all the frost away
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night

i wrote a note
it reads, i quote
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night

but it just needs one word
it's one that we've all heard
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope

in case he kills us all
forgets the climate brawl

bowling green massacres
happen to amateurs
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night

i wrote a note
it reads, i quote
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night

but it just needs one word
it's one that we've all heard
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope

i wrote a note
it reads, i quote
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night

but it just needs one word
it's one that we've all heard
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope

gimme gimme the light
never ever the night
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope
gimme gimme the light
never ever the night
gimme gimme some hope
always ever some hope
Track Name: Living in Violence (Toddler with an M16)
if i was american
i wouldn't have a clue
they say they want silence
but only when it comes
on the end of handgun

they're living in violence
they're not the only ones
to live the news
and it hurts
to see the corruption
it was a good idea
live free or die

how many have to die for the right
to be a murderer

you can't beat the government
so why do you pretend?
this isn't the 1880s
you might have all the guns
but they have nuclear bombs

they're living in violence
they're not the only ones
to live the news

how many have to die for the right
to be a murderer

i don't want to be
shot in any arteries
i don't want to need
any major surgery
i don't want to have
blood coming out of my leg
it's true

i don't want a brain
splattered on the morning train
i don't need mcbain
shooting up my lumbar vein
i don't want to see
a toddler with an M16
it's true

they're living in violence
they're not the only ones
to live the news
and it hurts
to see the corruption
it was a good idea
live free or die

how many have to die for the right
to be a murderer
