We've run out of patience, you've run out of time. this scene will not fall vistim to your violence or lies. Your "values" are nothing but excuses to start fights. Quit fronting like you're standing for a moral cause tonight.

United as one. We won't stand aside. You try to fuck with our scene. We're gonna fuck your life!

Chorus: This machine, this machine, this machine, this machine... KILLS FUCKING FASCISTS!!! DEAD! THAT'S RIGHT! DEAD!

You don't have to be a racist, to be a Nazi fuck. Your mindless nationalism gives you credentials enough. You spew your right wing rhetoric, when we get your attention. You've mistaken the punk scene for the republican convention.

No more infiltration. No more right wing will lies. You don't belong in our scene - we'll fight you till we die!!!

    General CommentThis song is not about people thinking we need to be saved from ourselves, it is about what it says it is about. It's telling fascists, and/or republicans that they do not belong in the punk scene. It is a message to all the bands that are nationalists for america to get the hell out of this scene because that's not what punk is about. For a more indepth and insightful delve into what punk is about, visit badreligion.com and read greg graffin's punk manifesto.

    General Commentthis song doesnt just go out to Skrewdriver and No Remorse, probably even the Dropkick Murphys - i'd admit they have some good songs...but they need to drop the patriotism. and theres another american Oi band called Patriot. the name basically says it all. they need to get out of the punk scene and sing some southern rock

    General CommentThe name of this song is what Woody Gutherie had written on his guitar. A truly great song.

    General CommentTo me this song is clearly talking about SHARPS (skinheads against racial prejudice).

    "You don't have to be a racist, to be a Nazi fuck. Your mindless nationalism gives you credentials enough. You spew your right wing rhetoric, when we get your attention. You've mistaken the punk scene for the republican convention."

    You probably know the SHARPS as the patriotic hicks at your local punk shows, dressed like the guys from American History X. Fucking kudos to Anti-Flag for writing about these assholes.

    General CommentIdont really think it is about SHARPS because that is a nonracial oraganization, nothing else. The ideals that each member of the group have may be different and the nazi fuck thing does not apply to all skins of that kind. For me the song is vey explicit in what it is got to say about fascists think thay have an ideal and start fights for that while they are just nothing
