Track Name: Grind 'em Down
Mr politician, your lying on TV
You make the poorest suffer
As the guilty rich walk free
That's the power of your corruption
Use it grind em down
You grind us down

See the people marching
They've taken to the streets
Your silencing their voices
With a tattoo of truncheon beats
They're the muscle of your corruption
Use them ti grind em down
You grind em down

Mr Politician, get this in your head
Those who oppress the people
Often end up dead
Remember good king Charlie
And how we took his head
We ground him down
We'll grind you down
Track Name: Turnin' Texan
I woke up this morning and took a look in the bathroom mirror
And found that over night I had grown a long ZZ Top type beard
On my head was a Stetson hat
On my arm a rattlesnake tattoo
And I found my self wishing to uphold my second amendment rights to carry a loaded firearm at all time

I immediately set out to surround my property with a high chain-link fence to keep out Mexicans and other undesirables
And traded in my economic family run about for a v8 pick up with a a gun rack
I ripped up my English cottage garden and planted a sea of yellow roses
And in my back yard I started drilling for oil
I remembered the Alamo
I know the way to Amarillo
and I started taking an unhealthy interest in republican party politics
