about

If this page says that the download isn't free, it's because we ran out of free download credits. Bandcamp gives bands 200 free download credits each month, after that they want us to pay them money, which we won't do. In that case go to our website skankshot.com to find alternate download links.

----------------------------

Recorded in a couple of sessions in 2012 - 2013. Drums, bass and guitars recorded by Alex & Johannes at Ton 13, Altona. Vocals and horns recorded by ourselves at our rehearsal space and in various living rooms and bedrooms. Mixed and mastered by Moritz Beller.

All songs were written and performed by us, of course.

Feel free to copy, share, play and use this music freely for whatever purposes except commercial use.

Track Name: Kritik der Politischen Ökonomie
diese scheiß grauen wände
malt sie an
diese glasfassadenwelt
reißt sie ein
der chef in der firma
werft ihn raus
und das gottverdammte geld
verbrennt es
Track Name: Pyramids
the best seats have been taken in advance
you can watch the ball on tv but you can't dance
no hope, no hope, it's lonely at the top
no hope, no hope, there's no space for you

yeah right, equal opportunities
the winner takes it all but it won't be you
no hope, no hope, it's lonely at the top
no hope, no hope, there's no space for you

nine hundred ninety-nine thousand nine hundred ninety-nine in a million
never reach the top
and keep waiting for better days
that they know will never come

no hope, no hope, it's lonely at the top
no hope, no hope, there's no space for you
Track Name: Industry
they make the same jokes at every show
because it's tested and it works
cause that's what the people came for
and that's what the people get

the play the same songs on the radio
because it's tested and it works
and it's easy to digest, no surprises
background music for the status quo

they sell, they sell, the same old song by a different band
they sell, they sell, plastic sounds for the plastic world
they sell, they sell, a parody of all i believe in
they sell, they sell

it's tested, it works, industrial production
it's tested, it works, let's do it all again
it's tested, it works, and the people are buying
bread and games, that's what they get

they sell, they sell, the same old song by a different band
they sell, they sell, plastic sounds for the plastic world
they sell, they sell, a parody of all i believe in
they sell, they sell
Track Name: No Solution
are food supplies contaminated with toxins?
slap organic on some of them and jack up the price
what once was taken for granted in every vegetable
has now become a selling point

buying is no solution
buying is the problem itself

the economy is growing
the ressources are getting less
and the economy keeps growing
until nothing is left

buying is no solution
buying is the problem itself
Track Name: Run
when they kick at your front door, how you gonna come?
but when they stop you in the streets, you better run
because they're not invincible
and the night is on your side
and if you ride your bicycle
some roads are just to tight
for their cars

when they ask "what did you do?"
don't say a word
every detail and confession makes it worse
because they're not as mighty and knowing as they seem
and if you don't say a word
the chance is high they'll have to set you free

run run run, you better run
run run run, you better run
because the system has holes you can slip through
because the cops are sometimes just too slow
because it's beautiful to escape
run run run, you better run!
Track Name: Hey Adam Smith
the big fat cats, the rich kids, they're preaching liberty
this "freedom" of the market feels like modern slavery
oh adam this invisible handis a fist in a worker's face
redistributing wealth from the poor to the rich in a steady pace

i'm sure you saw it coming, i bet you didn't mind
cause he who's got the money can afford to act he's blind
production and consumption, economic war
oh the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting more
Track Name: Babylon Brennt
babylon brennt
und ich kann den verlust gut verschmerzen
hab die beine in der hand und die flamme im herzen
babylon brennt
und ich war live dabei
der könig ist tot und die gefangenen sind frei

babylon brennt
und es wurd auch langsam zeit
ich warte schon ne halbe ewigkeit
dass babylon brennt
und dass die mauer verschwindet
dass nach all den jahren hier ein anderer wind weht
Track Name: Got To Get Away
so this is what they call the third world
no land of the free
imperialist oppression and european greed
and the war profiteering goes on and on

and i got to get away
(away) gotta get away

what?
barbed wire, deportation
they even wrote laws to justify our geographical social segregation

and i got to get away
(away) gotta get away
Track Name: The Saints
when the saints go marching in
i won't be there to applaud
the celebration of superstition, ignorance and fraud

the institution can't be saved
put the corpse back to the grave

when the saints go marching in
i won't be there to clap
for homophobic bigots and their anachronistic crap

the institution can't be saved
i won't be there
when the saints go marching in
when the saints go marching in
when the saints go marching in
when the saints go marching in
Track Name: Claws
i got stripes
i got stripes around my shoulders and my neck
i got claws
watch out because i'm dangerous

i don't walk much
cause there's no place to go to anyway
i eat what they feed me
and one day i'll kill one of them
