Track Name: Something Fierce - Warlords of Information
WARLORDS AT THE FRONT DOOR
GETTING THROUGH THE SCREEN
WHEN NO ONE'S AROUND
THE ILLUSIONS OF A QUALITY CONTROL INSTITUTION
AND IF THE PEOPLE NEED TO SWIM
LET THE SHALLOW WATERS CARRY THEM IN

THAT'S THE STRENGTH OF
MARKETING SLAVERY

POSSESSED TO CRUMBLE AGAINST THE WIND
MANUFACTURED TO FEEL ALONE
GET LOST OR GET CONNECTED
WARLORDS OF INFORMATION

THESE WARLORDS ARE GONNA BURY YOU AGAIN
Track Name: Something Fierce - The Sound On The Northside of Town
I WAS A GHETTO NERD SHARPENED UP
NONE OF THE KIDS ON THAT BLOCK
LEARNED TO BE TENDER
SO MANY DAYS ON OWN REPLAYED
WHAT A BASTARD PLACE IT WAS
THIS LONELY PRETENDER ON THE LONGEST MILE

I REMEMBER WHEN IT WENT WRONG FAST
IN BED I HEARD THE CAR CRASH
MOMENTS THERE THEN HE WAS GONE
SHADOWS BLOOD FELL ON LAWN
AT THE EDGE NEAR THE STREET
I SAW A BOY LOSE EVERYTHING
AT 2AM THEY TOOK IT ALL FROM HIM

I CAN REMEMBER THE SOUND
ON THE NORTHSIDE OF TOWN

IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO STAND
TALK ENOUGH
WHETHER YOU LIKE OR NOT THE GHETTO WILL ANSWER
SO MANY MOMENTS ALONE RELIVED
AND THE LESSONS NEVER STOP
THIS QUIET ROMANCER FROM THE LONGEST MILE
Track Name: Something Fierce - Get On or Get Off
HAD NO INTENTION
OF SHARING WORDS WITH YOU
GOT THE WRONG EXTENSION
AND NOW I'M TRY TO
GET OFF THE PHONE
GET OFF

WHO MADE THE BAD CONNECTION
THE CALL IS COMING THROUGH

GET ON OR GET OFF
THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH

YOUR GUNS ARE WEAPONS
MARRIED TO VIOLENT TRUTHS
UNTOLD PERCEPTIONS
OF WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO DO
GET OFF MY PHONE
GET OFF

WHO DEAMED THIS FLAW PERFECTION
THE CALL IS COMING THROUGH

GET ON OR GET OFF
THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH
Track Name: Occult Detective Club - Brick By Brick
OUR LOVE
WAS LIKE THE BERLIN WAS
EAST VERSUS WEST ONES
BUT ONE IN THE SAME
WE SHARED COMMON LANGUAGE
BOOKS MOVIES AND MUSIC
YEAH, WE DANCED TO THE SAME SONGS
BUT COULDN'T SHARE MY NAME
BRICK BY BRICK
THE ROADS THAT WE PAVED
THEY CRUMBLE BENEATH OUR FEET
THEY START FALLING AWAY
SO TAKE YOUR CARRYING HANDS
CAUSE THEY LOOK EMPTY AND THIN
AND BRICK BY BRICK WE'LL BUILD THEM UP AGAIN
LAST YEAR
WAS LIKE A FUCKING WORLD WAR
KIDS BURIED IN TRENCHES
GIVING AND TAKING GROUND
THE RIGHT WORDS
COULD JOIN ENDLESS EMPIRES
BUT I'M ALL OUT OF WHITE FLAGS
AND YOU'VE GONE TO GROUND
Track Name: Occult Detective Club - Streets, Schools & Hospitals
READ A STORY ON THE ENGLISH NEWS
FROM A SOURCE BOTH TRIED AND TRUE
HE SPOKE OF HOW NECKS WERE PUT TO BOOTS
APPROVAL RATINGS GOT PUT TO USE
IF IT'S WAR THEY WANT LETS LET THEM HAVE IT
EXCEPT NOT IN THE HOMES
OF MY BROTHERS BUT IN THEIR OWN
AND NOT IN MY SISTERS FIELDS
HER STREETS, SCHOOLS, AND HOSPITALS
I CAN'T GET GOOD REST UNTIL I'M ASSURED
WE'VE BROUGHT IT TO THEIR DOORS
SAW AN IMAGE ON MY TV SCREEN
THOUGH IT'S BEEN YEARS IT'S ALWAYS FUCKED WITH ME
A MAN IN WHITE ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES
PULLING HIS FAMILY FROM THEIR HOMES DEBRIS
Track Name: Occult Detective Club - Ships At Sea
HELLO MY DARLING I WRITE TO YOU FROM AMERICA
AS SEEN ON TV WHERE THERE'S PEOPLE HURTING EVERYWHERE
OUR TEETH ARE COFFEE STAINED AND CROOKED AND OUR BOOTS ARE WORN
THE SOLES ARE THIN AND WE CAN'T SEEM TO FIND THE STRAPS AT ALL
BUT WE'RE TOLD IN TIME
HOW OUR SHIPS WILL RISE
WITH THE SWELLING TIDE
WE'LL LEAVE THESE SHORES BEHIND
HELLO MY DARLING I'M CALLING YOU FROM THE FACTORY
WHERE I WORK DAILY JUST SO WE CAN FEED OUR FAMILY
I STITCH AND SEW THE HEMS ON CLOTHES AND THEN THEY'RE SHIPPED ABROAD
I WONDER IF THOSE WELL DRESSED WOMEN THINK OF ME AT ALL
Track Name: Occult Detective Club - Third Way
ARTIST
NO I DON'T WANNA BE AN ARTIST
SKETCHING DAY DREAMS TO COMMUNICATE
IN THE VAIN HOPE THAT SOMEBODY RELATES
WORKER
WELL I DON'T WANNA BE A WORKER
DRAFTING STEEPLES THAT BLOCK OUT THE SUN
THE SUN FEEDS THE GARDENS WHERE ARTISTS COME FROM
WELL I KNOW A THIRD WAY IS COMING
I KNOW THAT IF IT'S NOT I'LL GO AND FIND IT
I KNOW ON THE WAY YOU'LL FIND ME SINGING
CRAFTSMEN
ODC ARE FUCKING CRAFTSMEN
CUT EACH DAY OUT OF WOOD GLASS AND STONE
OUR LABOR DIVIDED RETURNS TO THE WHOLE
ENTERTAINERS
SO WHAT'S SO WRONG WITH ENTERTAINMENT
IT'S HAPPINESS GAVE AND RECEIVED SO
RECEIVE BACK THE KINDNESS THAT YOU GAVE TO ME
A THIRD WAY
