Going around and stealing people’s trust again
Running around with my friends in the sun again
Burning and looting and stealing people’s trust again

Now don’t be divided
It’s all in your mind yeah
It’s not decided, mmmm
Now you’ve got a feeling
But being is feeling
Hearing is not believing
You here but we all know you’re leaving

Going around and stealing people’s trust again

Track Name: Pigs Are Haram
I’ll show you where to plant the drugs at
I’ll show you all my badge and ass crack
I’ll book him in the front and shoot him in the back
You’ll tell me that he’s wanted when he’s just black
I’ll show you how to run this country
I’ll show you how to plant the palm trees
I’ll show you how to run this country
I’ll show you how to ruin the country

Dropping the bomb
So remain calm
Read the Qur’an
PIGS ARE HARAM

Are you at harm?
Ring the alarm

In my own way
Rip my jeans and
Give my soul away

What’s goin on?
Are you at harm?
Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
What’s goin on?
If you’re at harm
Just ring the alarm
And I’ll be right there

And even if you lose,
And lose your mind
And go bananas I’ll stay by your side

Bananas

Track Name: Freedom
K-O-M
K-O-M-I-N-A-S

Haven’t seen you since 77
Did you get a job?
Did you go to heaven?
Ronnie says he wants to help us
Bullshit, he’d rather destroy us
Kind people have a wonderful dream
Margaret on a guillotine
Indhira and this damn automatic
30 rounds later now it's up to the cabinet
Alright okay
Aw yeah
FREEDOM

Right wing religious merchant bankers
Dirty scab fox-hunting wankers
Friends and frenzy
Love and scabies
I cannot lie
I LOVE THE 80s

KOM
KOMINAS
Track Name: Loyalty
Oh you, Oh you, Oh you

Loyalty
You know that I’m about it
When you say you’ll leave,
I never really mind it
Talkin’ bout loyalty
So lovingly reminded
Loyalty, my people get behind it

That’s really cute
You know it sounds like you’re growing up
Doesn’t mean I’m growing down

You reap just what you sow
The story’s getting old
repackaged and sold
Oh, no telling what’s been told
Talking bout Loyalty
You know that I’m about it
My people get behind it

ooh it's all behind me
Track Name: Against The Wall
Yeah I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
Turning up is against the law
But we can’t turn down for you anymore
Hands up, get against the wall
If you can’t stand up then get on the floor

Who I am I can’t be sure
I’m not sad but kinda {really} though
Yeah I know, yeah I know, yeah I know

Hands up get against the wall
If you can’t stand up then get on the floor
Turning up is against the law
But we won’t turn down for you anymore

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
