CPR021​-​Red Alert "Third and Final EP" EP

by Common People Records

People cry when it begins Time has come to pay for their sins They know that this will be the last No-one misses the mighty blast New guns for everyone Turn and laugh ar World War One Modern methods sure to kill Empty graves ready to fill There’s just no way to survive ‘cos we’ll die in World War Three Not a person left alive We’ll all die in World War Three Parading through the city streets Heavy sound of the marching feet The cries of sorrow will fade away The war won’t last a single day
It took me so long to close my eyes The dark heavens needed no disguise All my senses aroused by a crack As my captor lay awaiting attack Gotta escape from the border guards They’ll shoot anything that moves Gotta reach safety on the other side I can’t find a place to hide So many crimes that’s left unpaid for What’s the difference of just one more No one seems to see it my way It’s just a script from a play Once again i’m back inside A thousand rooms where men have died Freedom it ain’t on the cards Cos I deceived the border guards
Sell Out 01:22
You started off with dreams and ambitions Saying that you’re not like the rest We believed in your intentions Thinking wrongly that you’re the best Sell out (x3) What happened to the low priced tours What about the things that you said Lots of money-ours is yours Don’t you think it’s something in stead Due to things beyond your control You’re saying that your prices must rise Turn your music into soul What you said was fuckin lies
Take a look out yer door There’s kids on the street They ain’t got no more But they’ve got themselves beat There’s not a trend to follow Everything’s just the same They’ll take tomorrow And the council take the blame They’ve got district boredom You’ve got district boredom We’ve got district boredom I’ve got district boredom The powers got you Cos they said you borrowed a car The paper never shows Cos they’ve got you where you are It’s just a passing phase The boredom will die out No more tiresome days That’s what life’s all about
