Unbelievably Subhumans have been going for almost forty years, yet they are still as passionate and pissed-off as ever. Let's face it, with most of the punk scene having zero integrity, in these times of political turmoil in western society, we need dissenting voices like these guys more than ever. Musically, eleven tracks of trademark Subhumans old-school english punk rock. If you weren't a fan before then this won't change that, but for those who are then this is great stuff. Favorite track: Thought Is Free.

Track Name: Terrorist In Waiting
a history of protest used to mark you down
as someone witrh a conscience and a brain
credit due for what was done but that was then
unannounced the boundaries have changed
for living counter-culture as peaceful as you like
for gathering on corners especially at night
for relatives in places on the list that got supplied
arrested without warning and still no trial in sight

CH: everyone's a terrorist in waiting
one by one we all get redefined
everyone's a terroist in waiting
our innocence is just a state of mind

when the anger vent has no real intent
and words can travel far
you can't say 'bomb the bastards'
[unless we already are]
and if in overexcitement
you suggest we smash the state
they'll pull you in for questioning
and look closely at your mates

CH

demonstration, hesitation
what's the legal situation?
broke the law doing no more
than something that you did before
its national security
its protection for the free
but who's secure and above the law?
it isn't you or me

CH
Track Name: Fear And Confusion
There goes the conspiracy factor
Now it's yesterday's news
The facts are out no room for doubt
No longer a minority view
You can't blame ignorance anymore
Unless it's what you chose
The walls are covered in writing
And the emperors lost his clothes

Ch: is it conspiracy
Or is it true?
Is it conspiracy
Or is it you?

If knowledge is power then where's the revolution?
Balancing facts to avoid confusion
Screenshot theories gathering dust
Instant proofs and no more trust
Fake news false flags disinformation
This is how the structure holds
Everything has a contradiction
Til nobody knows if what they're being told
Is true

Ch

Sow confusion Laced with fear
Stop the people getting anywhere near
Coordination, realisation
That everything's lost to hesitation
Go with your brain go with your heart go with your guts
Cos fear and confusion will have us all fucked

Ch
Track Name: Information Gap
see the diamond its forever disconnected
from the horrors of child labour so intensive
mining undermining our perception of expensive
shiny lies to pacify the apprehensive

CH: disinformation- what do we know?
it's propaganda- telling us what they think they need to

coffee romance in the adverts love drug revival
far away the migrants sweat for their survival
here's the latest cola burger infatuation
fed on chemistry and death - deforestation

CH: +telling us what they think we need to know

here's the product here's the facts
they rarely interact
check the deadline on the back
best before you think about it
propaganda met the rumour
theres more than meets the eye
confusing the consumer
get the facts before you buy

CH
Track Name: Atom Screen War
your television is a bomb
its another world war when you turn it on
press the button to forget
its a mini explosion chemistry set
we're drowning in a box of noise
in the attempt to find some peace
we overdose on input
+ we all forget to breathe

CH victims of the atom screen war
-don't forget to breathe

the television is your friend
the chemical heads met the media men
everybody makes a bomb
hyno-tick the box saying free will gone
well i don't know about you
but i know when atoms crash
It creates a slight reaction
In the nearest stable mass

CH

I can stare for half an hour at you and feel completely wired
But half an hour of anything on telly and I’m tired
Which, in the case of tv signals and whatever’s in computers
Is the watching semi-human being slow but surely neutered

CH
Track Name: Follow The Leader
Now is the deadline and always will be
under the breadline in the land of the free
no time to plan its a planet gone mad
running on empty illusions of good and bad

CH: follow the leader do as you're told
how much can you be controlled?

learn by example of people with guns
shooting their mouth off for the freedoms they've won
armed to the playground or bombing for peace
what kind of human is this inhumanity?

CH

tempers and temperatures rising in hand
with a new understanding of how its all planned
bang up to date with the rate of exchange
the shorter the soundbite the longer the chains

CH

now is the deadline to wake up inside
bring back that feeling of nothing to hide
and nothing to hide from its totally free
and everything thing else is control by degrees

CH

could you be would you be out of control?
Track Name: Strange Land
washed up on the beaches
what history teaches
we hold out a hand
when the refugee reaches
at least it's supposed to be that way

welcoming faces
we found you a place it's
out on the street
if you can't get the wages
or if you look a certain way

strange land

upon your arriving
be aware of the thriving
bigoted right wing
culture of fighting
another world war on autoplay

this civilised nation
is based on frustration
your lack of possessions
reflects our obsession
with getting more and more, not giving it away

strange land

so youre welcome in theory
but in numbers not really
unless you got plenty
of disposable money
those who forget the past
are doomed to repeat it
those who divide the world
would have you believe it's
better to blame the dispossessed
better watch out or you'll be next
Track Name: 99%
I talk to the wind and sing in the rain
tell-tale signs of going insane
well tell me then how the world makes sense
if everything's owned by the one percent

money talks too loud it screams
addiction to these plastic dreams
what we own is easy shared
but the 1% want to make it all theirs

CH
we're the 99% our lives are not for you to spend
we're the 99% and we resent this exploitation

its what you got not what you gain
that makes the situation change
strength in numbers open minds
til we've left the 1% behind

there's more to life than war and greed
imagine what the world could be
without financial slavery
and 99% agree

CH
Track Name: Punk Machine
now we got it all planned
gonna make it as a band
got a mate who knows a man
who can give us a helping hand
- with his punk machine

he said if you wanna make it
you better learn to fake it
how far can you take it
before they start to notice?
-it's a punk machine

CH: it doesnt work like we were told
it doesnt work its just control
it doesnt work cos its got no soul
it doesn't work - at all

money talks if people scream
entertainment fuels the dream
heres a cheque for more icecream
leave all the paperwork to me
-it's a punk machine

we'll set the trend
get a load of brand new friends
fame and fortune round the bend
or a debt that never ends
- it's a punk machine
Track Name: Poison
the sea is full of plastic bags are full of ready meals
are full of slaughtered animals who never saw a field
saturate with chemicals to streamline the supply
im not sure what you're eating but at least it fills you up right?

CH: poison- the air is full of poison
the food is full of poison
poison- the water's full of poison
your brain is full of poison

the road to breathing normally is full of toxic air
commuters on computers staying sick and unaware
of the daily breathing in and out of pesticide and waste
geoengineering us to keep us in our place
CH
our food is full of poison but its cheaper that way
our measure of survival is the price we pay
thats why the rich live longer its not because they're stronger
its cos they keep the rest of us on minimum wage
CH
when the earth dries up and the food runs out
all the money in the world won't help you out
cancer dementia poverty prevention
clean up your act avoid extinction
Track Name: Thought Is Free
The world is getting smaller
the pressure is sublime
some people want the way we think
to be monopolised
purveyors of convenience
a thousand talking heads
would much prefer the customers
whose brains are empty

empty brains
don’t complain
are easy trained

who controls the mindset
controls the status quo
the pillars of society
are built on our say so
if we refuse to play along
they lose the thought control
imagination overrides
the will to keep the people

nice and quiet
and compliant
non defiant

they can put a line through sentences
sentence those who write
delete the onscreen versions
of opinions they don't like
contain the contradictions
that open people’s minds
illegalise the actions
that follow close behind
they can put chains on your body
persecute your soul
ridicule your attitude
but never get control
of instinct intuition individuality
you can put a price on anything
but thought is free
