Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Pledge
You pledge allegiance to the pound
until you're stone cold in the ground

I'd much rather live my life
than put up with that kind of shite
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Ensconced
We're not given the freedom
to actually think and to properly feel
by this ridiculous existence
that surely can't be fucking real

Massively ensconced in despair and anxiety
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Bearwood Fastcore
We'll reduce The Abbey to the ground
like The Thimblemill and Samba Lounge

Bearwood fastcore

Drinking bare Aston Manor goods
in Lightwoods or up Warley Woods

The only fast band in town
Liquor Bins has the cheapest Crumpton around

Sandwell mandem, Brum's a bore
we're Bearwood fastcore
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Bitterness
Precious time and energy
spent on hate and jealousy

Your bitterness precedes your greed

Brought up to be competitive
to fear instead of to embrace

What are you so bitter about?

We could work for prosperity
but you'd rather exude negativity
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Communitea (Crucial Unit)
What's a better way to show loyalty to your crew
than sharing a cup of tea that was freshly brewed?


Communitea, pass the tea around
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Debt Until Death
Buying shit you don't really need
but thinking that you do
can't afford to have something?
Then fucking go without

Six months down the line
the bill comes through the door
you can't afford to pay it
because you're so fucking poor

Don't get yourself
into fucking debt
don't buy useless things
for which you'll regret

Debt until death
material possessions mean nowt
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Fuck The Spoils
Evolution of the game
but what the fuck is in a name?
From early days trying to get tight
to records and tours and other shite

Playing fast just for fun
we know we're not the only ones
who struggle, sweat, thrash and toil
just for the love, fuck the spoils
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Maintain
A system has been built up
where it's easier to maintain the status quo
rather than to dismantle it
too apathetic to change things

Eventually it will need to change
when our resources start to run out

Man's stubbornness will last 'til the end
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Acceptance
Why the fuck does this still exist?

Accepting that those born into privilege
are more deserving and important than you
buying into an archaic tradition
keeping in place an infinite rule

Respect is a two way street
you will never hold sway over me

Nothing more than a sycophantic fuck
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Stitched Up
When common sense has been gotten to fuck
you know you've been stitched up
Track Name: Hooked On Christ - Hot Sauce Remorse
No names if you want to feel heated
Sainos own could see you defeated

Hot or not?
Spice or shite?
Standard fake meat
condiment plight

Hot sauce remorse

Frank and Encona had better atone
but to shame by Sainos own

Demand water
after the first bite
you're in for a shock
when you need a shite
