I love this band, sad they are not very popular, just look these lyrics. Punk isn't dead! They were sometimes compared to Rise Against, but now they are bit different style. Its awesome band and definitively worth listening for. Lyrics are very political and so on.


Strike Anywhere - Prisoner Echoes

Take the banner
Hang it upside down
this country's in distress
from the schools to the factories
on the dead edge of town
this dream's a f*cking mess
Our sisters’ and mothers’ rights to choose
and powers determined to fake the news
this poison undertow
the bigot's power grows

when we put our will to sleep
in the radiation of
rioting pictures
we let them
jail and murder our sisters

break out

Up on the hill where the road is red
if you look close enough
Down in the valley we're the living dead
while our hands are cracked and rough
for every deception that the papers print
to fortify their lie
Our creativity always wins
from now to the day we die

I see the young revolutionaries changing clothes
living in condition while the third world grows
weary of supporting all the costume changes
all right
Anthems for New World Disorder
hammers to the bricks and mortar
consciousness in crisis
it’s up to you
So what are you gonna do?

When we put our will to sleep
under the blankets of
patriot colors
we let them jail and murder our brothers

break out

Up on the hill where the road is red
if you look close enough
Down in the valley we're the living dead
while our hands are cracked and rough
for every deception that the papers print
to fortify their lie
Our creativity always wins
from now to the day we die

Take this banner
Hang it upside down
this country's in distress



Strike Anywhere - Two Fuses

No more coiling in the dust of violence
We take while being taken by the price of silence
Our safety from fulfillment, the razor's touch
Calling your number but the lines are cut
Sabotage at the start of the race
For every smile, on every dirty face

Two worlds at war
Two fuses for the buying
Two worlds at war
Our consciousness is dying
Two worlds at war
You're the first and last to flash in my mind
Two worlds at war
I won't leave you behind

I won't leave you behind my friend,
So tear up the script and write a new end
Our working hands we cannot afford
Pax Americana from the killing floor
Did you bury your vision and join the roll call?
Woah..
From the shopping mall in the toxic sprawl
Where they keep young hearts in isolation

I'll leave in the commercial
I don't care what I've missed
These wire taps and satellite maps
Can't touch my right to exist

So "not in my name" but they buy us the same
Will they shut down our hearts in the pouring rain?
Don't tell us to die for the brand names of our dying days

Two worlds at war
Two fuses for the buying
Two Worlds at war
Our consciousness is dying
Two worlds at war
You're the first and last to flash in my mind
Two worlds at war
I won't leave you behind

Sing out from 'round the world tonight
From 'round the world tonight
So the struggle remains do we break from the line and run?
Captive and tense in the twilight cage the setting sun
Face to face no more, waiting to hear their call
for the bombs, the mines, the bullets and fists
Here's my name now, for the blacklist

I'll leave in the commercial
I don't care what I've missed
These wire taps and satellite maps
Can't touch my right to exist
