Ain't no holy ghost
Ain't no unholy goat
I don't believe your words
I don't believe your lies
You're cobweb of alibis

I tried facial creams
I tried flared blue jeans
I tried gucci bags, crummy flags
and Transatlantic jet-lags

Because
We're the nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)
We're the nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)

Don't wanna go to work
My secretary's a jerk
Don't wanna talk to the media
Ain't my job to read for ya from the encyclopedia

Just a nihilistic soldier
In a nihilistic band
In forever opposition
To whatever, whatever is the man
Can't you understand?

In a nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)
Nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)

(Nothing) x6

Why can't you be postive?
I WON'T
Don't you think you're too old for this?
I DON'T
Why don't you buy one of those self-help books?
I CAN'T READ
Why don't you go just slit your wrists?
I DON'T BLEED

Nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)
Nihilistic army (army)
We believe in nothing (nothing)

Nihilistic Army
Nihilistic Army
Nihilistic Army
We believe in nothing

    Song MeaningOne of my absolute favorite Turbonegro songs. From a swedish interview:

    ”The nihilistic army” starts off as a typical punk song about hating everything. But its purpose is to show how hard it is to keep the nihilistic attitude up into your middle ages.

    - We love that annoying cave man attitude in early punk such as The Dead Boys or Rocket From The Tombs. All the songs are anti-everything.

    - But the guys in those bands were 17 years old and unemployed in Cleveland. We are 40 and millionaires, says Happy-Tom.

    - So we wanted to write about what happens when you are successful and privileged but keeps hating everything, says Tony. We changed the classic punk line ”don’t wanna go to work, my boss is a jerk” to ”don’t wanna go to work, my secretary’s a jerk”.

    - Its hard to find good staff nowadays, says Happy-Tom.
