about

This is our long awaited debut! It's not perfect, but it's 100% DIY, recorded by us, for us (that means YOU too)! If you want perfect, go buy a Red Jumpsuit Apparatus CD. Give this to all of your friends. Better yet, come to a fucking show and drink and sing along with us! See you in the front.

oh and one more thing.... the live version of So What was recorded for us by our buddies in Anticitizen at The Trash Bar in Brooklyn. We were basically blacked out as you can tell and we know it sounds like shit and is loaded with fuck ups! SO FUCKING WHAT??

credits

released 23 February 2013

Thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way so far! Punk can't die if we're alive!

Track Name: BRAINWASHED
BRAINWASHED
They put their ideas in your head
Turn you into a fucking red
Turned your back on the working class
I hope this trend doesn't last
CHORUS: NOW YOU’RE FUCKING BRAINWASHED
Now they tell us where to eat
Because on certain issues we don’t agree
Freedom of speech no longer real
We’re robots programmed how to feel
Track Name: AMERICAN IMMIGRANT
AMERICAN IMMIGRANT

You said you found the new land; you said you had a cause
You killed and raped the Indians and made them follow your laws
Now you own the country, the very one you stole
Shoved religion down their throats and made them pay the toll
CHORUS
American Immigrant – You love the land you stole
American Immigrant – Call the border control
You made them believe your values; you made them wear your clothes
If they didn’t follow the rules, you broke their fucking nose
How can you not allow people who want to work come in?
If it wasn’t for the immigrants this country wouldn’t have been
CHORUS
Now it’s 2012; and this country’s at its worst
We’re in three wars, gas prices soar, and the immigrants are still cursed
Fuck all you Americans who think you own the land
The whole world hates us and we’ll never understand
Track Name: HERE TO STAY
HERE TO STAY
When you’re a kid they tell you it’s just a fad
You’ll grow up and cut your hair, your parents will be glad
But what about the ones who don’t ever wanna change?
For some this is the only outlet for them to vent their rage?
Bands like AFI, Good Charlotte, and Fallout Boy
Market to the Hot topic Kids, it’s part of their corporate ploy
But real punks aren't for sale – we don’t live that way
And unlike those fucking cunts - WE ARE HERE TO STAY
CHORUS
We’re here to stay(x6) – We’ll never go away

CBGB’s is gone, the Pipeline and the Cove
At ABC No Rio, the kids came out in droves
MTV doesn't care; they've turned our scene to shit
They've commercialized our music and made a mess of it
The anger is all gone, and the threat has been removed
Our music is now a money grab, their dream has come true
So what do we have left? They've taken it all away
One thing I can guarantee is we are HERE TO STAY
Track Name: THE GOOD OLD DAYS
THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Drinking away the stress of the day
Washing away cares of today
Raising our bottles making them clang
Our best friends, that was our gang

Chorus
Take it back to the good old days; it’s where we need to be
Take it back to the good old days; up to you and me

Life was easy, punk, beer and girls
Our message was clear, fuck the whole world
No one fought, we all got along
Punks and skins, united and strong
Track Name: LEFT FOR DEAD
LEFT FOR DEAD
Our scene’s fate is in our hands
Will you join and take a stand?
They leave our scene a mess
Never know who we can trust
Their hair means more to them then you
Cash their checks and tell you to sniff some glue
Won’t watch it leave us again
We will fight til the end!

Chorus
(Are we left for dead – 3x…..NO) x 2
Take more than that to keep us down
Always be back for another round
Are you willing to pay the price?
To stand up for your rights
Some bands are only out for cash
We follow in the footsteps of the clash
You can’t buy what’s in our heart
We don’t give a fuck about the charts!!
Track Name: LAID OFF
LAID OFF

You work your life away until they have no use for you
You tell your wife you’ve been let go, what’s a man to do?
Rung by fucking rung, you climb the corporate ladder
Until one day they push you off and watch your career splatter

CHORUS
Salary dumps and welfare cuts never affect the upper crust

10 percent of the nation, is out of a fucking job
With nowhere else to turn, many will start to rob
But that is not the answer, stealing from each other
We have to be more self-reliant instead of social bothers
Track Name: NOT ALONE
My friends are always near and are always by my side
So be fucking careful when our two groups collide
The world’s become a cold place where no one gives a shit
But as long as you have your friends you can make the best of it

CHORUS:
I…..I’m not alone (4x)

Our arms are going up and it’s time that the boasting starts
We will never stop, our livers are being torn apart
The beers are fucking done and it’s time to start the Jack
Our nights are never over unless we are all seeing black
Track Name: DO YOU TRUST THEM?
Do you trust your government when – they say they’ll use diplomacy
Do you trust your government when – they say they’ll bring troops from over seas
Do you trust your government when – they say same sex is a sin
Do you trust your government when – they say the economy is on the mend

CHORUS
Don’t….. trust the government
We…… are the last defense
They…..ruined America
It’s…..time for our vendetta

Do you trust your government when – they say they have our interest at heart
Do you trust your government when – they say we fight wars they didn’t start
Do you trust your government when – they tell you what to eat and drink
Do you trust your government when – they tell you that the debt will shrink
Track Name: ANXIETY ATTACK
Your hands are getting sweaty and your mind starts to race
Can’t focus on a single thing, you’re all over the place
Your job, your work, your school and home, all add to your stress
If you don’t get some relief, it’s cardiac arrest

CHORUS
HAVING…..AN…..ANXIETY ATTACK

Your mouth is getting dry and it’s getting hard to breathe
You can’t sit still or quiet your mind, you just want to leave
Your senses become a blur; it’s hard to tell what is real and fake
You feel as though you’re going mad, it’s almost too much to take
Track Name: ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL
ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL

Night starts off with a couple of beers
A bunch of the boys yelling “CHEERS”
The local band starts to jam
A race to see how many we can slam

CHOURS:
Worked all day, now let’s drink it away, we need it
Fuck last call, alcohol withdrawal, we need it

When there are no more beers to be had
It’s the only time we get M.A.D.D.
Funnels, cans, bottles and mugs
Give us booze, fuck your hugs!
