All the worries All the people sayin' whoa whoa I'm ready to go And all the people in the back of my mind Whoa whoa Fuck you, I survived, whoa whoa Fuck you, I survived Fuck you, Seattle Fuck you, Los Angeles, and all of your pretentiousness Capitalism, say fuck this prison I'll make it my mission To teach these evil bitches a lesson Fuck you, Broadway, you're the worst of it all Fizags and gutter punks gone exclusive The height of fashion Delusional Coffee Heroin Cannabis Fascism I survived and I bare these scars with pride Against the world with so few on my side I dedicate this song to all that don't belong And ask you to stand tall And scream, "Fuck them all" Fuck my high school celebration of the fool Mediocrity was the rule Fuck cool, telling me to move on Do I look rich and blond This culture don't respond I'm the odd man out and why the same old rule applies Think differently and die You must live the lie Testify Help deny You gotta reach for the fucking sky But I fucking survived

I didn't go out today I won't go out tomorrow I'll just sit at home And wallow in my sorrow Have you got some hope I can borrow? I used to think so big I used to talk so bold Am I giving up, am I getting old? How'd I get so low? No, I think life owes me more And I'm going to Pick myself up off the floor 'Cause I want the fucking glory Wash out, go wash out I'm feeling, I'm feeling like a motherfucking failure I wanna know how everyone survives The day-jobs and debts Not enough for rent and wounded sex What the fuck is next? So hard to accept How do I get by? I've been bought and sold Seen hot and cold Been bored and ignored Seen no reward for ten years of my youth And the long line of bastards Waiting to see me pack it in Now I know I'll never win Crawling under my skin Just amplify in my fuzzy fucked-up mind

I will bring you the truth It's 1917 all over again About a bloody revolution that's about to begin I got my torch and pitchfork Got the day off work And I'm joining with the rabble 'Cause today I'm down to battle I won't play your games I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I don't fear the state I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I think you're to blame I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I will clean the state I vote Bolshevik Lite All right It's OK, it's like a game Choose a target, let's get started It's OK, they're all the same Relax Pull the trigger I will bring you the truth It's amazing to me what I see them flaunting These multi-million dollar mother fuckers of the TV Flaunting their privilege like they earned it Don't believe it, it's all bullshit They're just parasites that I'm down to fight Let's go I can't hear your shit I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I hate both sides I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I will cross the line I vote Bolshevik Lite All right I be there to fight I vote Bolshevik Lite All right It's OK, like a game Choose a target, let's get started It's OK, they're all the same Relax your finger, pull the trigger

It's a cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past I remember the boy I used to be Taking life on so innocently It's a cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past It's of little relief that others hold your belief With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief Everything inside my house is broke The stove don't work, my window is cracked, it's all fucked up A hall of broken mirrors, path of broken glass Everything inside my house is black It's a cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past I remember the boy I used to be Taking life on so innocently It's cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past It's of little relief that others hold your belief With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief Everything inside my house sweats all night I wake up every morning And taste the salt Sunlight streaming in through the nicotine I bathe in the smoke of the unseen It's a cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past I remember the boy I used to be Taking life on so innocently It's cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past It's of little relief that others hold your belief With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief It's a cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past I remember the boy I used to be Taking life on so innocently It's cold hard fact That life moves so fast Without taking another breath You get stuck in the past It's of little relief that others hold your belief With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief

I feel no sympathy It's easy Leave it alone, let it be All activity must be stop All the doors must be locked Don't make sound or we all be fucked I hear it lurking outside It's a monster what? This should be no surprise It's the other half of your life Scary as hell Thank god I got my wife She's a soldier at your side That none can divide But in the end you'll have to face a very different kind Solitude no "we" This cut don't bleed So leave it alone, let it be Break it upon the rocks of your needs A sinking island, it doesn't want to find them No friend, no foe, no loose ends to mend In isolation There's no tempation To break from familiarity of feeling like a rarity A lock with no key This falling twig is finally been set free So what's the disparity What's the problem? You don't need no one You need nothing from Laughing and smiles No one for miles I am a rock Fuck the flock They're just outlines in chalk (yeah) Manikins that talk (yeah) Fists that knock (yeah) Bullshit that walks I float above it alone in my grace The ants disappear without no fuckin' trace What the fuck is this chain in my chest Dug into my gut it's tugged by the rest I can't be dependant, I can't be a mess I must remain solid in the face of this duress Its tug of war Killing my very core A conflict of property, no more, no more I'll break the chain I'll cut myself off No one can touch me in my isolation You don't speak of the love, you don't speak of rewards You don't speak of rewards, you don't speak of the cost I am an altogether different being I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing In the past I've seen my enemies go a fleeing Now I avoid the whole thing No friend to whom I'm clinging Some say it's not a way to be living That you should spend your life giving and giving So I flipped the switch Ain't nobody's bitch My wounds I self stitch I ignore the itch To socialize To realize To see through other peoples eyes I'm deaf to my own cries But I'm deaf to the lies You can't deny With no friends you don't cry I'll be this way till I die or learn to scry I am an altogether different being I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing I can't fucking breath I'm suffocating It's isolation What the fuck am I hiding from? I'm suffocating It's isolation What the fuck am I hiding from?

[Intro] Welcome to the hidden track! You know, I got a lot of complaints about some of the foul language I used on this album, and I, I wanted to make a song that you could share with your whole family. Cause by jove, sharing with our family is one of the most important things we can do as a ? [Verse 1] Every single time I look at your bloated body Rotting in my basement I'm glad Glad that I killed you I'm Glad And every single time I look at the scars on my hands From when you tried to defend yourself I feel happy Inside [Chorus] Because you deserve to die Because you deserve to die Because you deserve to die Because you deserve to die [Verse 2] Your mutilated genitalia hanging from my ceiling It gives me a funny feeling I feel happy Inside And every single time I look at your crusty eyeballs Sitting on my bedside table I feel happy Inside [Chorus] Because you deserve to die Because you deserve to die Because you, were such a motherfucker! Because you deserve to die

about

Oh where to begin. The Shizit, my band previous to Rabbit Junk, had gone down in flames after a tumultuous UK tour in 2001 with Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot fame. The Shizit was essentially an attempt to merge the lo-fi metal sound of Slipknot with the even more lo-fi sound of Digital Hardcore Recordings. The project seemed to go far, very fast - within about 18 months we had come to dominate the mp3.com charts and were getting attention from major labels, many of whom were trying to figure out what to do with these emerging "internet famous" bands biting at their heels. But in the end, tension between me and my band-mate, Brian, got the best of the project. Almost immediately after The Shizit split, I started working on what would become "Rabbit Junk". I had become a bit tired of the super macho, super angry sound of The Shizit and I wanted to incorporate the quirky-poppy influence of Mad Capsule Markets along with punky female vocals. Sum Grrrl and I had been married for about a year and a half at this point (we were YOUNG!) and we moved from Seattle to LA briefly, where I recorded most of the record in a sweat-box in North Hollywood. I really wanted fem vox but didn't know any fem vocalists, so I literally dragged Sum Grrrl into my little make-shift studio and told her to yell. I thought she sounded just right! I had been using Pro Tools for about a year and had no idea what I was doing. The sound I was getting was pretty muddy, fuzzy, and boomy, but considering my background in digital hardcore it sounded acceptable. What became the debut album was originally intended just to be a demo. I printed up 500 copies and sold them on rabbitjunk.com - they were gone in months. This is about when people started emailing asking if "I was the guy from The Shizit". Michael Dome at Metal Hammer Magazine generously gave the album a 9/10 and I figured things would move along about as fast as they had with The Shizit. But by this time, mp3.com had folded and the labels were in disarray as new predators like iTunes swaggered onto the savanna. This was the start of a long, hard (did I mention HARD) road.
