Lyrics

STRAIGHT EDGE / DESPOT

VERSE
I'M A PERSON JUST LIKE YOU
BUT I GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN SIT AROUND AND FUCK MY HEAD
HANG OUT WITH THE LIVING DEAD
SNORT WHITE SHIT UP MY NOSE
PASS OUT AT THE SHOWS
I DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT SPEED
THAT'S SOMETHING I JUST DON'T NEED

CHORUS
I GOT THE STRAIGHT EDGE

VERSE
I'M A PERSON JUST LIKE YOU
BUT I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN SIT AROUND AND SMOKE DOPE
COS I KNOW THAT I CAN COPE
LAUGH AT THE THOUGHT OF EATING LUDES
LAUGH AT THE THOUGHT OF SNIFFING GLUE
ALWAYS WANT TO STAY IN TOUCH
NEVER WANT TO USE A CRUTCH

CHORUS
I'VE GOT THE STRAIGHT EDGE
WE'VE GOT THE STRAIGHT EDGE
HAVE YOU GOT THE STRAIGHT EDGE
THERE'S NO STRAIGHT EDGE

VERSE
I'M A PERSON JUST LIKE YOU
BUT I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN SIT AROUND AND ANSWER PHONES
PROGRAM ALL THOSE LITTLE DRONES
WIPE OUT FAMILIES DESTROY LIVES
GO IN WITH THE KNIVES
SHELL THE TOWNS AND BOMB THE HALLS
LOOK AT THE SIZE OF MY BALLS

CHORUS
I'M NO DESPOT

VERSE
I'M A PERSON JUST LIKE YOU
BUT I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN EMPLOY THUGS TO STEAL YOUR CASH
TRADE EMBARGOS ON BLACK HASH
RAZE THE GROUND ANNIHILATE
(IT'S MORE THAN JUST A POLICE STATE)
KILL MY PEOPLE - MURDER YOURS
ENJOY THE FEEL OF MY WAR

CHORUS
I'M NO DESPOT
HE'S A DESPOT
CAN'T YOU SEE THE DESPOT?
STOP THE DESPOT
