Track Name: Resistance call
Resistance Call

You're preaching about the world security
But you're just breeding insanity
Army only spreads mediocrity
They bought your soul but they'll never get mine
And the army's defending our so called liberty
In our names they're invading the poorest countries
Looking for new cities to spread their democraty
Looking for new markets for their dirty economy
I've reached a better destiny than die for my country
Check out the History, I could never be
A slave and a bug in their bloody supremacy
make sure the choice is yours and join tha Anti
The east, the north, the south & the west The whole world is in a mess
Rape, torture and distress, Now Mr. soldier it's time to confess

All these dead, what does it mean?
Whose freedom are they defending?
All these dead, what does it mean?
Which people are they protecting?
All these dead, what does it mean?
Who are the real ennemies?

One more step for the next genocide
But who the fuck are you to decide?
Who has to live, who has to die
You make jesus cry so stop your lie
Thousands of dead bodies, devastated cities,
Let's start a war to solve the international crisis
Western countries economic interests mean more to you than some respect for the human race
It's you, not me who brought down a whole society
But all these starving people are good for your economy
Less and less liberty in every big city
But not for everybody, thanx to the army
Shoot the ministry
Bomb down their industries
Their fucked'up glory
Is based on atrocities
Track Name: Smoke dust
Smoke Dust

Now I'm dead and in my grave, rotten by worms until my bones
I rolled the dice and payed the price, but all i've done is in the past

My life was so tame, now I play a new game,
I'm a skull with no name with a fuckin' bad aim
I can do what I want cuz I don't feel no pain,
I will come back again and realize my plan

Out of control, coming out from my hole,
I will do what I told coming back for the fall
Here's my revenge, I'll do honour my pledge
Never again sage, now I will express my rage

Living dead haunting the streets
Supported by ugly freaks
Preparing some dirty tricks
Torturing these fuckin' pricks

Now I'm on your track, ready to stab you in the back
No time to react when I'll smoke all your crack
Ghosts control the night under pretty moonlight
We are waitin for midnight and looking for a fight
And out come the freaks smoking dope on the hills
Giving us a thrill, letting me feel for real
Climbing over the wall, shop lifting at the malls
Giving the cops a kick in the balls

From dawn to dusk, still standing smoking dust
No I can take your drugs on trust
I've sold my soul, that's i've always told
I'll never give back all the things I stole
Ghosts have no fear and will yell in your ears
Listen to our mix and bring us beers
Life was boring I choose to quit
Let's move your feet on this fuckin' bad ska beat

End of ... pressure
Track Name: Burn tha state
Burn tha state

It makes me bleed since i can read, it wastes my dreams to pay his bill
Every day I work and feed his banks, fuck that, I don't want to take part in that
I never had the feeling I belonged to a nation,
a thousand rules and laws , a fucked up constitution
I don't want to work to build this fucking kingdom,
I'm not ready to waste my time & loose my freedom

Won't you stay One more day
You can't complain You chose this way
Till' your death You'll walk so straight
oh yeah yeah, change this state
Won't you stay One more day
You wanna play but You're gonna pay
Day by day You seat and pray oh yeah yeah, change this state
Won't you stay One more day oh yeah yeah, change this state
You can't complain You chose this way oh yeah yeah, change this state

Why are you suffering ?
Why are you shutting up ?
Why are you cryin' ?

Wake up man ! The choice is yours, change this state, nothing to loose
Just pay the tax, we must be making tracks, pack your bags,
you know we can't change the past
Think for yourself and choose your own way,
don't act as they do and pretend it's okay
Watcha gonna say when they'll ask for their due,
it's time to react cause this hell is true

And it's getting worse & worse, your whole life seems like a curse
You're suffering in silence, now that they've bought your conscience
You owe them a complete obedience, and they profit from your ignorance
Take a look at what's going on, can't you see the damage done?
Refuse this state and choose your own way and maybe one day you might say...
