caleb horsley these guys are the shit. just strait up. if you meet these guys you'll love em, if you listen to their music you'll realize they're hardcore, punk, and ska, all put into one and they mix it better than bands that have been around for a long ass time. give em a chance, black friday and assimilation are my favorite, and the best example of the mix of genres they incorporate. best of luck to these guys.

Track Name: Assimilation
You're trapped inside, no way out.
"Do what we say or shut your mouth"
Is this school or a prison?
Fuck the education system.

Assimilation

Sit at school all damn day.
Apathetic, feeling grey.
The last thing I wanna do
is sit here and deal with you.

Assimilation

The System tells us what to think
I'm sitting here on the brink
Pressure building in my head
They should be dead. They should be dead.

Assimilation
Track Name: #Yolocaust
What if I told you that your life's not in your snap-back?
Hallways of high school, you're always on the attack.
Proud to know nothing of what's happening outside yourself.
Bullshit society where you're the sheep and I'm the wolf.

Egoistical attitude is not helping me or you.

Woah, whats wrong with our world? This is a Yolocaust. Whats wrong with our world? This is a fucking Yolocaust.

We stand outside the crowd laughing at you in the herd.
He said, she said, he said. What the fuck have you heard?
Diamond studs in your ears. Yes we know your social wealth.
Bullshit society where you're the sheep and I'm the wolf.

Egoistical attitude is not helping me or you.

Woah, whats wrong with our world? This is a Yolocaust. Whats wrong with our world? This is a fucking Yolocaust.
Track Name: Comrade Marco
Comrade Marco joined the army.
So very revolutionary.
Because Stalin died in 1953 (but) he's coming back now from the grave
to blow those anarchists away.

He used to say "Fuck the police!"
But now his supervisor's the commander-in-chief
and he calls our politics infantile marinating in denial
while he raps about hypocrisy.

Comrade Marco is a cadre
but in his mind he's fucking comandante.
He's got his head up in the clouds while making Vladimir Lenin proud.
He clutches his delusions of the state.

Comrade Marco is a genius.
Comrade Marco's revolution is gonna be a podcast.
Track Name: Black Friday
You think that your holiday stands for happiness and love.
All I see is you handing your cash to corporate thugs.
The consumerist mentality is wired in your brain.
Without all your material items you would go insane.

Go shopping on Black Friday, you have to, it's a must.
Disregarding all life for materialistic lust.
Trampling over other people just to save a buck.
Another life gone just like that but you don't give a fuck.

Capitalist apathy never did us good.
Why couldn't we just smash the state when we fucking could?
You've tied the bricks to our feet, threw us in the pool.
When did we turn into a society of fools?

Hand me the rope.
There's no more hope.
Hangingman's knot.
I'm left to rot.



(Unintelligible screaming)
Track Name: Pirates of Suburbia
Waving our black flag down religious Gilbert Arizona.
Fall in line, under your shrine. No, we're never ever fucking gonna.
Disturbing the peace, doing everything we can to avoid the cops.
Seems we're the only ones broken from the chain of thoughts.

We are the pirates, the pirates of suburbia!

Roaming the dark streets with the cutters, never getting old.
We're evil sick and twisted it was bought but never sold.
I hate everyone I'm forced to fucking be around.
When it comes to outcasts, look your fucking kings been crowned.

We are the pirates, the pirates of suburbia!
Track Name: "Education"
When this allure of education falls between these long lived cracks
nevermore will I bow down to you, I'm never coming back.

And all you've really taught me is I'll always be under some kind of control
Oh, I wish you shot me so I won't have to deal with Mr. Asshole.
Day in and day out, I just wanna go home.
If I wasn't in school, I'd know so much more about the world.

And I can't turn away again, there's too much behind the red curtain.
They took so much from me, tried to turn me into another fucking zombie.

"Education" (In quotations)

I'm not the one with problems, forced to sit still for seven hours.
Lock up my thoughts and hide them behind the need for more corporate whores.

And I can't turn away again, there's too much behind the red curtain.
They took so much from me, tried to turn me into another fucking zombie.

"Education" (In quotations)
