JAMES KENNEDY - MAKE ANGER GREAT AGAIN 

KONIC RECORDS 2020

WORDS & MUSIC BY JAMES KENNEDY

1) THE POWER

To the disillusioned
The ignored and oppressed
The time has come
To make anger great again

I can not take, i can't take no more
I'm gonna break or break the law

There's more fists than guns
So let the stampede run
The ninety nine to one
So who wants a revolution?
Yeah who wants a revolution?

To all puppets in power
And the drones that surround you
The real power is us
Don't make us remind you

It all falls down when we stand up
How sweet the sound of a building rush

There's more fists than guns
So let the stampede run
The ninety nine to one
Yeah who wants a revolution?

When we fall
We come back harder
When we lose
We come back smarter
When we break
We come back larger
You can't stop the power

More fists than guns
So let the stampede run
The ninety nine to one
Do they want a revolution?
Do they want a revolution?

Do you want a revolution?

2) AUTOPSY

Here we go again and we're still choosing filthy rich liars
Over food banks, sweatshops and tower block fires
Zero hour contracts, billionaires pay no tax
The homeless, immigrants and poor get attacked
'cos the one percent need divide and rule
Not unions, homes, hospitals and schools
The media spread fear like a disease
While the police state creeps like the rising seas

What's it gonna take?

Wake up, wake up
We get what we deserve

Sometimes I think that there's no use
Sometimes I think that we just crave abuse
When we're screwed more by banks than terrorism
But still the robots dance to the algorhythms
But don't we want more from this life
Than just to work, shop, drink and die?
Sometimes I think we deserve what we get
'cos do we ever learn? No, we forget

Wake up, wake up
We get what we deserve
Wake up, wake up
We get what we deserve

Wake up, wake up
We get what we deserve
Wake up, wake up
We get what we deserve

Wake up from the fear, wake up from the lies
The nightmare will be over the second you open your eyes

3) GHOSTS

By the grace of hungry roads and seas
There's a second chance i live to see
My home, my family, all my futures and my history
Buried in dust and bullet shells
And I'm leaving it all behind

I'm leaving it all behind
I'm leaving it all behind
And I pray that I can find
A refuge

Now i'm a prisoner on foreign streets
Hands tied to a system i can't leave
Paraded as the enemy, to be hated by society
So far away, so much the same
I thought I was leaving it all behind
Leaving it all behind

If you only knew my story
If you only knew my name
I didn't come with needs before me
I came to start again
I'm not a refugee
I'm you, if you were me

I'm leaving it all behind
I'm leaving it all behind
I'm leaving it all behind

4) MIND REVOLUTION

They build prisons in between our eyes
Flood them with confusion, fear and lies
Blinded with images of everything we're not
I think that there's some things that we forgot
A little chaos and disobedience makes you feel alive
We can unleash the animal inside
'cos in a remote control society
Nothing's more dangerous than a soul that's free

Mind revolution
Mind revolution

Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible
Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible

I'm not a victim of the media machine
Your filtered fake-ness just spewing through the screen
I'm not a number that the fat cats kick around
I'm human motherfucker and i'm shutting you down

Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible
Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible

Everything I was told was wrong
Everything I was taught was wrong
Everything you were told was wrong
Everything you were taught was wrong

So don't waste no time
The bars are fake
A million minds
On a prison break

Mind revolution
Mind revolution

Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible
Free your mind, free your body
Free your heart and you're invincible

Refuse, resist, rise up, reclaim yourself
Refuse, resist, rise up, reclaim yourself

I'm shutting you down

5) ALGORHYTHM

I know you better than you know yourself
I've seen all your dirty secrets
I give you everything that you desire
But I work for someone else

Ooh, ooh
A little step to the right
Ooh ooh
In the morning light

It's an addiction and no one can get enough
You'll never leave me even though you know I'm dangerous
I'll make you
Dance to my algorhythm

It's only propaganda but I like it
It's only propaganda but I like it

You thought it was me that was the product
But it's you
I am your master, maker, stalker, spy
And pretty soon you won't be needed at all

Ooh, ooh
Take another step to the right
Ooh, ooh
Before we say goodnight

It's an addiction and no one can get enough
You'll never leave me even though you know i'm dangerous
I'll make you
March to my algorhythm

It's only propaganda but I like it
It's only propaganda but I like it

Two plus one equals three
So tell me who's the other one
You need me, I need you
But tell me who's the other one
Two plus one equals three
So tell me who's the other one
You need me, I need you
But tell me...

6) OUTRAGERS

Here come the thought police again
Vigilantes of the screen
To keep you safe from fact or doubt
So only pain and rage remain
So come on and join the noise

It's what they're talking 'bout
It's what they're talking about
It's what they're talking 'bout
They're all talking about

It's where the parasites feed
Stoke their fires and build their walls
At the carnival where reason burned
We couldn't smell the gas at all
We were busy joining the noise

It's what they're talking 'bout
It's what they're talking about
It's what they're talking 'bout
They're all talking about

Here come the thought police again
It's what they're talking 'bout
It's what they're talking about
Vigilantes of the screen
It's what they're talking 'bout
They're all talking about
To keep you safe from fact or doubt
It's what they're talking 'bout
It's what they're talking about
So only pain and rage remain
It's what they're talking 'bout
They're all talking about

7) WE FIGHT DIRTY

In the red corner weighing fifteen pounds
There's a cardboard Che Guevara self-gagged and bound
Ooh ooh, this is the opposition, this is the opposition
Ooh ooh, look at the opposition assume the position

They're oh so clean and they're oh so clever
They only fight dirty when they're fighting each other
Gloat at the cause and hail the leader
Hate nothing more than a non-believer

And I'm still waiting
Even though it hurts
I'm still pretending

In the blue corner, Satan himself
He just burned down the building and stole the belt
Ooh ooh, here come the opposition, here come the opposition
Ooh ooh, still the opposition, always the opposition

They're oh so clean and they're oh so clever
They only fight dirty when they're fighting each other
Gloat at the cause and hail the leader
Hate nothing more than a non-believer

And I'm still trying
Even though it burns
But the truth is screaming

Right, left, god help us all
Right, left, god help us all
Right, left, god help us all
Right, left, god help us all
And it's a knock out, again

They're oh so clean and they're oh so clever
They only fight dirty when they're fighting each other
Gloat at the cause and hail the leader
Hate nothing more than a non-believer

In the echo bunker is where they'll be
But don't hold your breath for a victory
Until they write the rules of the fight
They don't wanna win, they just wanna be right

I'm in the red corner with my head in my hands

8) SOLACE IN SICKNESS

Ecstasy, it ain't my destiny
To chase you up that hill, don't tell me I am ill
Society, don't lie to me
That plastic yellow smile is the face of our denial

We don't need to try
We don't need to hide

I wanna feel down, I want the fear
I wanna be sorry and I want the tears
I wanna know real love, not the ideal
And I'll risk the losses, just let me feel
Something real
Something real

Did I fail the test, to want the best
From the market of nirvana's like all the rest?
Lesson. It's our obsession
With happiness that's feeding our depression

When there's so much more
We got to live for

I wanna feel rage, I want the dirt
And I want the truth even if it hurts
I wanna feel the pain that makes me strong
And i wanna fight for what's right even if i'm wrong

I don't want your fix
'cos your bliss don't exist

I wanna feel high, I wanna feel low
I want the struggle, I wanna lose control
I wanna feel it in my heart, feel it in my bones
It's electric plugged in to my soul
Something real
Something real

9) STRUGGLES

I can lose it like the flick of a switch
These days, these streets, this life
It's wearing me down
I’d surrender if I could
No matter how hard I try
It's never enough

Feels like I'm waiting for something that never comes
I’m stuck in a battle that's never won
I'm killing myself just to exist
'cos I played by the rules but the game was fixed

When will my victory come
I've been waiting for so long
Where will my rescue come from
I'm screaming inside
Can you save me, can you save me from myself
Can you save me from everyone else

I can feel it taking its toll
On my will, my hope, my love
My body and soul
But I hide it, so you never knew
How I struggle behind my disguises
Just like you

When will my victory come
I've been waiting for so long
Where will my rescue come from
I'm screaming inside
Can you save me, can you save me from myself
Can you save me

When there’s no way out
There’s no way through
And the fear paralyses
We carry on
We've all got our reasons

Feels like I’m waiting for something that never comes
I'm stuck in a battle that's never won
I'm killing myself just to exist
’cos i played by the rules but the game was fixed

When will my victory come
I've been waiting for so long
Where will my rescue come from
I'm screaming inside
Can you save me, can you save me from myself
Can you save me

10) PRIMAL

Teasing the edge of thrill and pain
The power we give and take away
A violation, a hunger
It's more than a game of predator and prey

Skin, breath, lips, teeth, fingers
Sin, sweat, nails, heat, shivers
Taste, mess, force, hands, pressure
Destroy

And we remember
Again

Deeper inside, faster we fall
Tangled and twisted, animal
Blood rushes, heart trembles
Scream and claw, savage, free

Skin, breath, lips, teeth, fingers
Sin, sweat, nails, heat, shivers
Taste, mess, force, hands, pressure
Destroy

And you remember
Again

Skin, breath, lips, teeth, fingers
Sin, sweat, nails, heat, shivers
Taste, mess, force, hands, pressure
Destroy

And we remember
Again

11) BROKEN COMPASS

Does your god fill your heart with love
Or does he fill it with hate?
Would your riches still add up
With your skeletons away?

Judge not lest you be judged my brother
We've all got that devil waiting under

This is your mirror, do you like what you see?
You look not too bad and not too good to me
But I'd rather have a sinner for a teacher
Than a perfect preacher

Does your power reach down
Or does it trample and scorn?
Does your moral high ground
Live by its lessons at all?

We walk with a broken compass
So sure of where we think it leads us

This is your mirror, do you like what you see?
You look not too bad and not too good to me
But I'd rather have a sinner for a teacher
Than a perfect preacher

And the reaper sits and waits with a smile

This is your mirror, do you like what you see?
You look not too bad and not too good to me
But I'd rather have a sinner for a teacher
Than a perfect preacher
