Demons 05:23
I'm scared to death Of myself I can't feel anything I can't feel anything I have become the pain I have become my own demons I'm tired of being a punk Yeah, like I ever was I'm tired of being myself Yeah, like I ever am Like a quarter dug out of a homeless man's pocket Like a finger torn out from the socket I tried it and I knock it I'm just mad, 'cause nobody wants to steal my soul I'm tired of being made up Yeah, like I ever am I'm tired of being tied down Yeah, like I ever was Turn the radio on To the techno station Keep it a few points off, so it sounds all ruff Then it matches my head All static with the meters in the red I'm feeling half dead Feel the demons rise Let the mercury rise I can't close my eyes

Well, maybe I should just move Well, maybe I should just use Anything to kill the memory Of me and you It ain't over 'til it's over That's what she said I see her walking the streets at night She'd be better off dead No one can hear me scream in my head No one can hear me scream in my head I see it, I see it I won't let go I see it, I see it I won't let go Go! But it's all right I don't wanna fight With myself no more Because I keep on winning So I give in And there you are again Looking like an angel Fresh from fucking Satan No one can hear me scream in my head No one can hear me scream in my head I see it, I see it I won't let go I see it, I see it I won't let go Go! You're deaf to the silence You're deaf to the silence No one can hear me scream No one can hear me scream No one can hear me scream in my head No one can hear me scream in my head I see it, I see it I won't let go I see it, I see it I won't let go Go! You're deaf to the silence You're deaf to the silence Forever! Forever! Forever! Forever!

You know that if we go off the beaten track You know that if we go, we won't be back To stay or go A little bitch of a question A token of my affection For this little complication I jingle it like trinket No need to dwell on it I just hang it around my neck and forget No plan, no sweat, I ante up on this bet Win this battle but lose the war, like Tet Want what you cannot get Break out of this net Don't mind if I do Because I'm feeling through With being what you expect With being predictable - uh oh I love a taboo So true But if you break every rule You just become another tool But at least you're the sharpest in the shed 'cause You're brand fucking new I saw her face in the street light And I knew that she had seen my eyes A puddle of waste floating down on this business Hagahahahagahahaha present day obsession I kick straight on to check it No need to go catch it So it's now or never no way no how It just won't fit I'm in a dilemma Because I can't remember I'm supposed to be here today I'm just a minor character in this play

The Big Push 04:03
You won't stop Now over the top You'll tear your enemies apart Pray for your soul But you do your part This is the big push No one walks away No flesh on bones No blood in veins This is the big push We don't take no prisoners Ein zwei drei vier This is the big push We don't take no shite It was a drunk weasel Feeling a miracle Stubby little fingers pulling triggers Beating back the hordes It was a walking revenge fantasy Seeking out the enemy in the trenches Of its scabby knees Bubble gum bubble gum in a dish How many pieces do you wish Ein zwei drei vier One more and you'll choke my dear I bet they didn't think that something so small Could put an insect in the ink In which they stood for I bet they didn't see it coming It was too fast for their running Now they're stuck in the mud Surrounded by bodies Cinderella ribbon of yella Went upstairs to see her fella Made a mistake and kissed a snake How many soldiers did it take

She won't wait for me to catch up She's too far away for me to catch her She's on her way to somewhere better I'll never find her I'll never find her again Goodnight Well said Soon I think we'll all be dead He's in trouble with the natural laws She's in the effect and he's lost his cause Conflicted like a dog with hands for paws He never could have saved her from Who she was If he could have only let her go Maybe she'd wake up tomorrow I can't wait For you to catch me I'm too far away for you to catch up I'm on my way To somewhere better You'll never find me You'll never find me again Goodnight Good call Soon I think the sky will fall Will she be there to hold it up When he comes home from getting fucked up? I think not All is lost He'll die in the frost A victim of his own high cost A now she's just a bleeding wounded Haunting in his bedroom I want my life back We can't wait For you to catch up We're too far away for you to catch us We're on our way to somewhere better You'll never find us You'll never find us again

Crutch 03:58
Suck it up, you got no right to be bitching You've got your youth and your health But every day that you wake up You feel like you've got nothing else You get the feeling that this ladder is endless That your arms aren't long enough Chalk it up to a bad day anyway Look forward to the first of the month You wanna blow it on clothes and ink and lifestyle But this ride will only get you down the street One guess as to where you end up Same place as last week A place where nobody knows your name Only way I'm going out Is if we get so fucking drunk That I will not know myself So I will not give a fuck I want to wake up By going to sleep I want to see the clouds From the bottom of the sea From the bottom of the sea You just wanted to escape But life was just a phone call away With your crutch You don't care so much Let the world drown in the sound Of my mouth calling for another round Only way I'm going out Is if we get so fucking drunk That I will not know myself So I will not give a fuck I want to wake up By going to sleep I want to see the clouds From the bottom of the sea From the bottom of the C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down Turn it upside down Only way I'm going out Is if we get so fucking drunk That I will not know myself So I will not give a fuck I want to wake up By going to sleep I want to see the clouds From the bottom of the sea From the bottom of the C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down C-R-U-T-C-H Turn it all around Turn that bottle upside down Turn it upside down

Civilized 04:39
All I want to know Is how far you think I'll go Will I take it all the way Only a fool would wait around to see Well I want to be A one man army Taking on the world Taking on myself Break Down! I feel domesticated Like an animal In a pleasant and comfortable cage I feel inoculated To my own survival instincts All I want to know Is how far you think I'll go Will I take it all the way Only a fool would wait around to see Well I want to be A one man army Taking on the world Taking on myself I'm tired of being Ci-vi-lized Ci-vi-lized I want to Break Down! The best is silent no longer It speaks in a strong but humble voice "Too long have I been in slumber I will lead you back to your true self" All I want to know Is how far you think I'll go Will I take it all the way Only a fool would wait around to see Well I want to be A one man army Taking on the world Taking on myself I'm tired of being Ci-vi-lized Ci-vi-lized Organic gone frantic Emotional pantantic It smells like burning plastic It's a pleasure epidemic Our needs are effortless And so many people are lifeless Is there a connection Or am I just being a brat? The same old story About beaujeu and malaise Making a push for the good old days ??? old country Well its not so far away And if you would choose the same Took em all this way Until we have a date Well I'm fed up Lets go Back to the Lets goback to the Break Lets go Back to the Lets goback to the Break Down! All I want to know Is how far you think I'll go Will I take it all the way Only a fool would wait around to see Well I want to be A one man army Taking on the world Taking on myself I'm tired of being Ci-vi-lized Ci-vi-lized I want to Break Ci-vi-lized

[Verse 1] I'm an armchair patriot Part time revolutionary armpit Minimum wage slave Don't stick your fingers through my cage I'm the wonder of our age If life was a video game Then I might engage [Verse 2] But I'll just call it day Because I ain't slaving away To try and figure things out To try and better the world I'll just keep my head low And watch some telly Getting smelly With this belly I got no meaning [Chorus] I'm scared to know Where things might go I'm just going with the flow In a world of super villains And anti-heroes And you [Verse 3] But every once in a while With a wince, I get a glimpse Of something greater than me A thing I don't want but could be And it's pulling me in Heart first, head last And it forces me to think Going way too fast [Chorus] I'm scared to know Where things might go I'm just going with the flow In a world of super villains And anti-heroes And you [Bridge] It's said no rest For the wicked It's said no rest For the wicked [Outro] I don't Want to live in a world where Nothing matters And I won't Run to the comfort of hope anymore And I don't Want to live in a world of good and evil And I don't Want to be your soldier anymore

February War 05:59
Standing on the curb, wasting my life, waiting for a bus The 36 was full, the 13 was late, I think I've had enough Standing in the grime, that seat was mine, I said "what the fuck" Pray to the gods, they show me pity and beam me up But now I'm stuck, so I read my book and wish for better, better luck Who are these people? What are these customs? What is this language? I don't understand I feel the battle rage I feel the steel on my hands I feel the wind on my face I am not of this Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right I finally got myself a seat by the homeless guy who'd been smoking crack He said his name was Phil and this was the bus he's gonna hijack I had to ask "Would it be too much to drive me home?" He said, "Where to?" I didn't know, because I've never, never known Who are these people? I don't understand I feel the battle rage I feel the steel in my hands I feel the wind on my face I am not of this Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right I feel the battle rage I feel the steel in my hands I feel the wind on my face I am not of this land I feel the battle rage I feel the steel in my hands I feel the wind on my face I am not of this Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me an alien Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me all right Thank you god for making me all right Yeah Go!

Slater 03:47
They ain't got a med for this one yet Come on! A social construction A meme of destruction A tyranny of isms based off of assumptions There is no rhyme or reason to it [Chorus] Christian Slater! Where you at? I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad! I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn Are you with me? Whats going on! [?] [Chorus] They ain't got a med for this one yet Christian Slater! Where you at? I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad! I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn Are you with me? Whats going on! No true objective When its all subjective It's a mindless machine and you're in its way There is no rhyme or reason to it [?] [Chorus] They ain't got a med for this one yet Christian Slater! Where you at? I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad! I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn Are you with me? Whats going on! Whats to be done? Flushing pills is fun They diagnose with a gun Don't eat the bullet! There is no rhyme or reason to it Cristian! Cristian! Cristian! Slater!

Every species on the planet Waits in a traffic jam In the passenger seat sits extinction Poised to take hold of the wheel And turn the car into oncoming traffic Is there really time To get it all right? If we wait any longer It feels like suicide Let's go And not just hope for the best We gotta put it on the med 'Cause nature has the best revenge You know I do Will somebody tell me Is it all just a big trick? Is there nothing money can't save you from? Or does god have a hand in it? Or does it all come down to The status quo? I got my other priorities I let my instincts go Revenge! I just can't shake the feeling Like it's all gone wrong I feel it sitting next to me And it won't be long 'Cause when you've reached the top And you've grown too strong There's only one thing to rely on And that's self-destruction
12.
Ice cold hand of your newest enemy Smell the fear as the bodies grow sweaty The strongest god is the deity of the petty In the pantheon of isolated passions He wins For the city sings its prayers to him With every silent prejudice And every warm smiling bias The sky turns heavy and humorless We're redefining our sentience In the golden age of loneliness And you think you're doing it You're doing it, you're doing it right And then like freshly opened eyes Exposed to broad day light S this feeling or convincing? Or is my gut misleading All control is an illusion And all compassion is a drug Smile on drip Pull the goddamn plug Long live the cult of thug, amen I'm walking down the streets of Los Emptiness I step over the ghost of hope still restless And you think you're doing it You're doing it, you're doing it right You keep your mind tight To keep the mood light Don't let yourself show Don't let the others know It's all just pretend My greatest friend Is a black box In the golden age Of loneliness In a world where men become demons And women into witches All realness is fleeting How easily it all switches With great overtures of friendship That don't mean shit When you're about to be somebody else's meal ticket And the irony is that it feeds the leech That keeps us out of reach You can not teach The broken glass on the beach Set to lacerate The heavy soles of fate Just when you thought it was safe to be alone
13.
I know I'm paranoid But I still think they might be out to get me I'm in bitter need Of a new kind of enemy I'm going agoraphobic My ass sits idle But my mind is hardly stoic My blood pressure keeps on rising There more I keep depressing And denying Me name sake said that hell was other people Now I know how dealing with the petty And the feeble Can make you evil From a babe's mouth is the candy that I steal I'm climbing up and down on fate's oblong wheel You're strong in the bow, but weak in the keel I'll look you in the eye But behind the scenes is where I deal I'm making excuses for the seams that are ripping The only thing I hate more than digging Is begging! Back in the day, it was so perfect I had my purpose It was all very worth it But now my little victories Are just empty calories I'm in bitter need Of a new kind of enemy Something harmless but scary To keep them in line To keep them wary A point in time that can't be carried A memory that can't be buried There is no solutions Just the problems that I'm selling They'll make you feel better Even though you're aiding and abetting So quit your whining Eat some pills for your stressing Go buy some more debt and plan a Pretty June wedding Make lots of kiddies Because the gravy is never ending Have everything you want As long as the banks keep on lending I've made my sell And I hope I'm not offending Because the only thing I hate more than digging Is begging! I want to wear your face like a condom I'll never win

about

This is the "classic" Rabbit Junk album, from 2006. Re-released here on bandcamp, with permission from Full Effect Records. A relatively amateurish bedroom recording but dripping with unrelenting passion; the lyrics have only become more relevant as years have passed.

This was really Rabbit Junk's "first" album, as the debut released in 2004 was intended as a demo. This record was heavily influenced by Japanese digital hardcore act Mad Capsule Markets and, of course, Atari Teenage Riot but also European metal of the time, such as In Flames and Arch Enemy - both of which itched our metal nostalgia.

The record was initially released 100% independently in a single run of 1000 copies. It was sold directly from rabbitjunk.com and we were surprised at how fast they sold. This is also when we got our first video done, for "In Your Head No One Can Hear You Scream". In support of the record, we put together a full live band, which included Kent Ames on drums and Coleman Thornburg on guitar (long since disbanded at this point - our shows as a two piece work really well and we're never going back). There were some small tours around this time and it wasn't long before we were contacted by record labels. We decided to go with Full Effect Records because they offered the largest advance and we were flat broke. Full Effect had Tom Baker (NIN, Marylin Manson, Rob Zombie) remaster the record and they re-released Reframe in 2008...right in the middle of the "great recession". Full Effect made a series of blunders with the release, including misnaming several tracks (e.g. typos such as misnaming "Millennial Pox" as "Millennial Pow"). This was a transition moment in the music industry; box stores were shutting down and iTunes starting showing its dominance. However, the primary product of the industry, "mp3's", were easily available for free (torrent etc.) and indie bands struggled more than ever. we never saw any money beyond our advance. But Reframe did get some recognition, including reviews in Metal Hammer and Terrorizer magazines. This album is what put us "on the map".
