All Krays Lyrics written by Jon Rosado aka Johnny Kray



TRUTH

Another year now witness to this life 
Sometimes I'm filled with boredom at this life 
Made progress but it still seems filled with strife 
Won't give in to the anger of this life 

So! I can't look back on my decisions 
No! won't settle on your holidays from truth! 
The words I want to hear so I won't go! 
Won't give in now or lose my youth! 

When I was young I thought I'd hit the top 
I thought the more I gave the more I got 
And I believed that I could right some wrongs 
With the power in my head and in my songs 

(repeat chorus) 

Does evil twist decisions that we make? 
Does goodness stop revenge we'd like to take? 
The hand that feeds us nonsense I would break 
to find freedom from the guidelines that you make 

(repeat chorus)

From"BATTLE" LP


SAME OLD SHIT

I ain't gonna sing anything it all comes out the same 
Fight, fight all of your revolutions, 
well it all comes out the same 

Sing on the Street! 
Doing the best you can 
But it's always the same old shit 
Boring, rehashed, plain 

Fight you rebel, fight your friends 
but in this scene we're all the same 
And you wanna think you're better than me 
But your chants always sound the same 

Fight on the street! 
Doing the best you can 
But it's always the same old shit 
Boring, rehashed, plain 

I want life outside your circles 
Life not filled with lies 
You wanna tell me all the things you do 
aren't tinted with lies

From "BATTLE" LP


 
 

PROFANE EXISTENCE

Too many factions crowding punk 
with rules we don't wanna know
Too full of stuck up attitudes
And judges running the show
Oh look a new face, make him feel out of place
'Cause he don't think like you!
Worse than the army, if you follow their rules
in the end you always lose

And it's a Profane Existence
When they don't like us
It's a Profane Existence
It isn't punk
It's a Profane Existence
When they slag us
It's a Profane Existence 
Don't need their rules to be a punk
Fuck off!

Too many think they know what's punk
And how to pave the way
They draw the lines, they set up camp
For a war they'll start someday
They gain strength like a political force
And their opinions gain in weight
And if you're on the other side
You get slagged as second rate

And in the end it's only punk
Where faces always change
But I don't want to feel abused
Or my freedoms re-arranged
I see them use their power
Some for honesty, some hate
But in the end it's nothing to 
The music we create
 

From "BATTLE" LP
 


CHARGED MINDS

Don't be alarmed to find your senses dead
You've droned your way to work or school
then droned right back to bed
But years ago things looked ok for you
You've left your dreams somewhere 
when no one told you what to do

So riot, riot from the mindless clones!
They laugh at you and bring you down!
And make you go through hell!
So riot, riot from drab and daily life!
Don't let it set in and control and steer you from your way!

There comes a time you have to see things through
And fight the chaos in our minds 
before it concquers you
Don't march along side idiots
Lets over throw the hypocrites who stab us from behind

(repeat chorus)

From "BATTLE" LP


 

YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAR

TOO MUCH EVASION , WE USE IT DAY BY DAY
NO CLEVER NOTIONS TO CAPTURE WHAT TO SAY
A  USEFULL TOOL IS THE FACE THAT YOU PORTRAY
LIFE ON THE OUTSIDE JUST SEEMS THE ONLY WAY

THERE'S TOO MUCH SHIT I DON'T KNOW
BUT I'M TOO SMART NOT TO SEE THE LIES
THE PATH THAT I WANT TO GO
MIGHT LEAD ME STRAIGHT TO A WALL THAT I'LL CLIMB CAUSE IT'
(CHORUS)
YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAR!!
TO FIGHT TILL YOU SEE IT'S YOURSELF THAT'S THE ENEMY 
YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAR!!
A FREEDOM AND PEACE WITH MYSELF'S 
WHAT I'M TRYING TO BE 
YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAR!!
SO HOW CAN I WIN,  I'M THE BEST AT DESTROYING ME
YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAR!!
I WON'T LOSE MY FIGHT SO FUCK OFF CAUSE I WILL BE FREE

THE BAND PLAYS HARD, IT'S A STRUGGLE YOU DON'T KNOW
SNACK ON PLACIBOES AND FIT INTO YOUR ROLE
TIME CANCELS EFFORTS AND CHANGE WE CAN'T CONTROL
TOO BAD THEIR MESSAGE WON'T PAY FOR WHAT YOU STOLE

A WORLD OF SHIT YOU DON'T KNOW
FORM AN OPINION THATS BASED ON LIES
THE PATH THAT THEY WANT TO GO
MIGHT LEAD THEM STRAIGHT TO A WALL THAT THEY'LL CLIMB
CAUSE IT'S
 (REPEAT CHORUS)
YOU STRUGGLE DAY TO DAY 
FROM A WAR YOU CAN'T SEE

THEY CLAIM THIS COUNTRY'S THE BEST THAT'S EVER KNOWN
IN MODERATION THEY MAKE THAT FREEDOM SHOWN
BUT THERE'S NO PLACE THAT I'D RATHER CALL MY HOME
HOPE FOR A FUTURE WHERE I CAN BE MY OWN

A WORLD OF SHIT WE DON'T KNOW
STRUGGLE TO LIVE AND SEE THROUGH THEIR LIES
THE PATH THEY LEAD WE WON'T GO
THEY LEAD US STRAIGHT TO A WALL 
THAT'S TOO HIGH, BUT IT'S 
(REPEAT CHORUS)

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP


TROUBLED TIMES

I made the call into my brain 
to clear the last generation, 
the useless and the damaged thoughts 
Don't swim around me with your 
useless criticisim / try to rate me 
and put me in my proper place 
I've heard the words you've tried to preach 
the ones you use now to berate me 
and push me down unpleasant holes 
And in uncertain times I find it's you 
who shrink and never face me. 
Go wallow in your useless souls. 

(chorus) 
And now now the lights on you 
the one's who wanna push the world towards a war 
The bombs that fly toward you 
forgiven / unforgiven it's the world you want 
(repeat once) 
Why lend a heart towards you? 
You'd stab us in the back 
and then you'd burn the world! 

Now in our sadness and our troubled times 
it's you that would hate me. 
I'll never understand your crimes. 
Destroy the masses / how would that affect your plight, 
intimidate me? 
You burn in your unrightous fire! 
A holy war, an oxymoron meant to startle or to shake me. 
But holy don't become a liar. 
You egg us on to spill your blood & once we're done 
will god forsake me 
and sink us all in troubles times? 

(repeat Chorus)

We gotta brace against the ones who'd sink us all in troubled times. 
We gotta face up to the ones who'd sink us all in troubled times. 
(repeat chorus)

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP


INVINCIBLE

There's no calling for you
we lack the light of youth
and that's us running in groups
so where we running too
and there's no future thats you
so what you gonna do
the time keeps falling it's true
till no one's left you knew
(bridge)
And thats the future for you
so just keep running
you gotta keep running
I'm tired of running
(chorus)
INVINCIBLE  / But coming in short 
INVINCIBLE  / We're coming in 
INVINCIBLE /  I'm coming in short, Now!

The times when we never failed
seem quite so far from view
when our ideals got us jailed
but nothing shook our crew
we laced our boots and we sailed
and all we saw was new
and now your coffin it's nailed
your old and now you're through
 

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP


 
WHEN TIMES ARE CLEAR

THE FACT THAT YOU MIGHT LOSE THIS WAR!
WILL EAT YOU UP AND OUT THE DOOR.
THE FACT IS LIES MIGHT END UP TRUE.
WE'LL FINALLY PUT AN END TO YOU!

THE MODERN NATION
EMASCULATION
THE PLAN FOR WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU.

NO SORRY FOR
NO WIN  NO SCORE
THE PLAN FOR WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU.

THE PATTERN THAT WE'LL HAVE TO TAKE
COULD BE A BARGAN OR MISTAKE.
AND WHEN THE WAYS ARE LARGE AND CLEAR.
THE OTHER WAYS WILL DISAPPEAR!

THE MODERN NATION NARROWS ALL THE WAYS I SEE THAT WE ARE HEADED!!!!!!!

AND---THE TIME FOR ACTION!
REACTION!
THE TIME IS NEVER FREE AND CLEAR.
NOT FOR YOU 
 

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP
 


YOU BASTARDS

The argument began / but you don't make a noble stand
'cause you are wrong / so where do you belong
You give in to the fury / now the battle lines get blurry
are you grown / to choose now on your own
It's tough to see whats right when all the world just does is fight, but not for long / long 
Cause soon we might be gone.
And as the gap grows big, it becomes hard for us to live
We stand up strong / STRONG / strong
Get ready for the storm

And I'm too tired of this droning in my head
You're on your own / YOU BASTARDS!
Get out of my home
You're on your own / YOU BASTARDS
Leave us all alone

And I'm so tired of the sorrow and the dread
you're on your own...

Stalking out the door you come to realize your pain
But made of stone / STONE! / stone
You choose to deal alone
Our family and friends become your enemies instead
you ain't so grown
You'll find out on your own 
And life don't come like you expect and if it does 
It wears you to the bone
You do like you are shown
Our screams just don't affect you
You've been blinded by religion / race / and home
And hatred is your throne

And I'm so tired of this ringing in my head..

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP


 

MESSED UP LEGIONS

LOCKED IN FAST DOWN AN ELEVATOR SHAFT 
THERE'S NO LIGHT TO SEE, TIME TO BE 
SOON YOU WILL BE THROUGH. 

CRAWLING THROUGH THE PIPES 
JUST TRING TO SAVE YOUR LIFE 
THERE'S A QUESTION THAT KEEPS RINGING 
AS THEY COME RIGHT AFTER YOU 

(BRIDGE) 
NO TIME TO GRASP 
THE WORLD YOU'VE TRASHED 
NO PLACE TO RUN 
SOON YOU WON'T BE THE ONLY ONE 

CRUSHING THROUGH YOUR SPINE 
THEY PENETRATE YOUR MIND 
IT'S A CHANCE FOR EVOLUTION
THAT THERE'S NOTHING BUT TO BE 

EYEBALLS SMASH 
YOUR BRAIN GETS MASHED 
THERE'S NO USE FOR ALL THE MEDIA 
THEY DRAIN IN YOU AND ME 

(REPEAT BRIDGE) 
(CHORUS) 
MESSED UP LEGIONS (4X) 
NOTHING LEFT BUT MESSED UP LEGIONS 
MESSED UP LEGIONS (2X) 

YOU'VE BEENN FEELING FINE 
THEY ASSIMILATE OUR KIND 
AS THEY MOLD US INTO WORKERS 
THAT WILL SATISFY THEIR NEEDS 

NOW NO CRIME 
NO WASTE OF TIME 
WE CONGRADULATE THE MASSES 
WHO'VE ALLOWED US VICTORY 

(REPEAT BRIDGE) 
(REPEAT CHORUS) 
(LEAD BREAK) 

I'M NOT SURE WHAT'S HAPPENED HERE 
THERE'S A HOLE NOW IN MY HEAD 
AND I FEEL A QUIET PEACE 

NO TIME NOW TO QUESTION WHY 
I'LL JUST HEAD BACK TO MY SOFA 
AND I'LL WATCH SOME LATE T.V. 

(REPEAT BRIDGE) 
NO TIME TO GRASP 
THE WORLD YOU'VE TRASHED 
NO CHANCE TO SEE 
HOW THEY FINALLY GOT TO ME

From "A TIME FOR ACTION" LP


GONE 

SOMETIMES SOMETHINGS JUST GO TO FAST
SOMETIMES SOMETHINGS JUST NEVER LAST
WE SAY GOODBYE AND WALK AWAY
FILLED WITH THE THINGS YOU'LL NEVER SAY

AND NOW YOU'VE LEFT AND BLOWN MY MIND
CAN'T BE MYSELF
HELPLESS, LOCKED INSIDE MY MIND
CAN'T FREE MYSELF
MY MISTAKES COME BACK TO HAUNT ME
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I FEEL, WHAT'S RIGHT OR WRONG
WHERE SHOULD I GO

ALONE I'VE WALKED ANOTHER MILE
BUT TO MY FRIENDS I FAKE A SMILE
REACT FAST AND BLIND, WORDS COME OUT WRONG
IN THE DARKNESS CRY TO ANOTHER SONG
AND HOPE THE PAIN WILL HEAL AND FADE AWAY

(REPEAT CHORUS)

SO AM I WRONG IN ALL I SAY
SOMETIMES WE LOSE AND HAVE TO PAY
I'VE HURT YOUR HEART AND HURT YOUR SOUL
AND WASN'T PROUD TO PLAY THAT ROLE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

From "BATTLE" LP
 

 


 

WRITE US OFF

It's hard to deal with the situations 
In the world we're in today
Don't wanna care about your cheap shit acceptance
Giving up all my space
I got no problems, well it's hard to say
about the way I wanna be
And I can't understand the games we play
When they don't really matter to me
And I'm free, from what I can't see yeah!

I'm tired, I feel I've lost 
While it all just slips away
Yet I get nearer to it all the time
But what that is I just can't say
You wanna hate me or say I suck?
But you don't got a better way
Don't take me seriously, I'm a fool
And all your games I don't want to play
And I'l held back, from what I can't see yeah!

Go ahead, write us off
Go find a better way
Go ahead, write us off
I just want my chance to say what I want

From "Inside Warfare" LP
 


Oi! WHAT HAPPENED TO PUNK

Some say they want segregation in the scene today
And punk's not part of oi! 'cause punk is dead
They think 'cause they've got so much fire 
They're gonna steal the show
But punk created everything you know

Oi! what happened to punk today!
The scene's our throat to shout and have our say
Oi! what happened to punk today!
Eradicate the lines drawn
Dispel divisions, Oi! is here to stay

They seperate, eradicate, stoop down and deficate
On all we try to say
The system laughs while we just fade away
But oi! is punk, our voice our power
for kids to have our say
But against each other we tear that strength away

We march beneath the tired banners of heroes of the past
And shoot down would be heroes of today
Live your punk dream, sing your oi! song
live the way you choose
But 3rd world, 1st world
There's a bigger scheme than you
