*burst of laughter erupts for the band*
wes - So anyway.. what the fuck? DO you have anything to say?
jamie - Yea.. society blows..
wes - Yea.. I know....
this is a family outting
after the nuclear routing
to avoid the screaming and shouting
were going on a family outting!
Fried intestines, glowing brains
were just here to feel your pains
now we all glow in the dark
now we make and easy mark
the kremlin got a little bitchy
reagan's finger got a little itchy
now the commies are mutated
we're just a little frustrated
"Hardcore Bomb Dude"
your a narrow minded fuckface
you are always out of place
its your negative attitude
that makes you a hardcorebombdude
"One Simple Solution"
you give me your words of wise
i can tel by your face they are all lies
cant take our variety
lost in systems society
you give us your values!
you give us your rules!
you tell us we are unclouth!
but you have lost your youth!
one simple solution
