"Death Machine" as written by and Alan Vega Martin Reverby....
[One, Two!]

Don't look so smug when we're at war
you're not the boss you're just a whore
you keep your shoes so clean
fuck you and your death machine
oh I ain't gonna fight no more

we're shipping out we're standing tall
eight of every ten of us will fall
I don't take orders sight unseen
fuck you and your death machine
oh I ain't gonna fight no more
explosive obstacles fill the fucking hospitals
oh I ain't gonna fight no more

I'm as young today as the day i was born
you call me a knight
but I'm only a pawn
in the grand scheme of things
I'm an ape on a string
but I'll take my master down with me

hey you
with your suit and your jewels
what you gonna force me to do tonight
hey you
a black boy shining your shoes
what you gonna force me to do tonight

you keep your shoes so clean
fuck you and your death machine
oh I ain't gonna fight no more
explosive obstacles fill the fucking hospitals
oh I ain't gonna fight no more

I don't take orders sight unseen
fuck you and your death machine
oh I ain't gonna fight no more
explosive obstacles fill the fucking hospitals
oh I ain't gonna fight no more.

    General CommentHe doesn't tiptoe around his feelings, and it makes for a powerful song.

    General CommentI'm finding this band to be surprisingly good. I automatically attribute it to Joe Sumner being Sting's son. His father's influence is just so prominent in his voice AND the music.

    Second song I've heard (after Two Sisters), and I like this one two. Sounds good, good message--good stuff.
