Behind the kitchen tables In soft living room chairs We sit here Whisper slaves don't let anyone hear you Stay where you sit Keep you mouth shut Follow you father End up like him A silent shadow at the end of the table With a good old grin Revolution At Home Goes on and on and on and on and on Revolution At Home Goes on and on and on and on and on Let's tear up the newspaper together I tell you it's all scum Let's love in silence No pictures, no sounds I will never understand Why do they keep the lights on We walk between color and shine We whisper, we don't shout I wanna stand up But I love to sit down I wanna stand up But I love to sit down Food made of car tires Can I call myself a man Food made of car tires I'll stuff it in me I could never hit a woman But I can promise you Wake up theres no middle class dream What smells like flowers Is really nothing

So many babies are born Can you hear them talk So many walk with their eyes closed So many can't see Young people no dreams Young bodies no brains Brains are dead Can you blame the braindead You and I we're not like them In all our shoes and all our clothes We say a million words We drown in all that we don't know Let me sing Let me play Leave me alone Don't you know compassion is Let's get away Take a bus or a train and just ride We can ride ride ride Let's get out of this mud Let's find a place A place of happiness
3.
We get so easily annoyed In the western world And we like to go to war In the western world Screens, machines In the western world Success or failure Everything's painfull In the western world I hurt you You hurt me In the western world I've sold myself To the western world You're blowing out Smoke into my eyes Break away Break away And then Hungry and alone We check the prices on the boxes And I know that this is where I wanna be Standing in line Standing in line Standing in line Standing in line The western world The western world The western world The western world

I don't wanna see myself I need somebody else I have to go back I want you to love me I've done some things I know nothing Bad things in Good things out Bad things in Good things out From a distance I know it's you Do you know it's me I live in fear And nobody knows Bad things in Good things out Bad things in Good things out I'm scared of looking At the hardworking People around me Keep passing by me I'm scared of looking I'm scared of looking At the hardworking

Is there anything I can do What am I good for Stiff upper lip That's who I am Good for everyone I wish I could In my head I say some wild things Unemployed, yet still busy But nothing is happenning Nowhere I have no shame I hope and I believe Pride will avoid me Sometimes I mean harm I'm not strange in any way Unemployed, yet still busy But nothing is happenning Nowhere, nowhere Unemployed, yet still busy I came up with something
6.
Your family What have they ever said Water Babies Money Cigarettes Poison the child Keep the child safe Poison the child Keep the child safe I'm not like Not like Not like Not like You One day I'll say Your boy is the finest boy World has ever made He can walk and bite his nails He'll do everything he can Special boy Poison the child Keep the child safe Poison the child Keep the child safe I'm not like Not like Not like Not like You So, is this really your mind Is this really who you are Poison the child Keep the child safe Poison the child Keep the child safe I'm not like Not like Not like Not like You

Bum Night 02:55
Tell no one what I've done Don't say the name Let's find a place Somewhere that's warm We can sit on the stairs By the bank We don't need no money We don't like the rain Let's talk to the ones Who crap in the park Let's talk to the ones Who sleep in their own piss I wanna know How did they get there And what to do Where to go now My friend My friend Tell no one what I've done Don't say the name
8.
It lasts a while Lonely, with everyone around They're hungry for money Hungry for blood But you're a fool that doesn't mind Any kind of insults Your other cheek is bleeding And what you are recieving from them It's just not enough You repeat to yourself It's only death I have nothing to worry about It's not easy to be yourself You always cry alone And God is non-existing Except when you're scared Nobody spoke to you about you Ever in your life You are lost now You are a ghost now Can you feel anything these days Can you feel anything these days It's the system Yeah it's the system And it doesn't really work But to open your mouth and smile To get undressed in front of someone That's all you want from life

People moving slow Living quality low People moving slow Living Quality Low Low Strange hair Special girl Books Classrom Big words Lies Professor, can you teach me? False facts=Intelligence Repetition=Knowledge Economy Law Economy Law I believe now All the Gods All the gold All the shine I follow Anything there is to follow I pray for a nuclear war I pray for a nuclaer war I pray

Oppression 03:07
I've got dreams I've got somewhere to lay my head I've got no one to talk to I've got a 2-hour day It's good enough Do I have to keep my head down Do I have to find the love of my life Oppression That's what I feel Do I have to be clean Do I have to love my family Oppression That's what I feel Oppression That's what I need

about

"One of the stand-out aspects is the quality of the songwriting, and despite the heavy themes the music supports the subject matter with ease. You are not left feeling emotionally pummelled, but ready to take on the world." // rock-generation.co.uk

"Kompletno gledano, And The Kid su uspjeli stvoriti odičnu ploču. Desetak pjesama trajanja ispod trideset pet minuta sasvim je dovoljno da se dobiju pravi obrisi grupe. I imaju jednu posebnu mantru, onu koju sam osjetio i kao klinac kad sam prvi put čuo Joy Division. Dok je debut negdje između nevinosti Jonathana Richmana i indie zvuka Pixiesa i Smithsa, ovdje su And The Kid odgrebali nevinost i skinuli jumf." // terapija.net

"Ovaj album svakako navodi na razmišljanje i zapitate se što možete učiniti da popravite sredinu u kojoj živite. Glazba je najbolji medij za izražavanje stavova i u sebi nosi moć da mijenja stvari. A And The Kid to vrlo dobro znaju. Ima jako malo slabih stvari i kao cjelina je album jedno jako dobro ostvarenje nakon kojeg poželite pisati pjesme i mijenjati svijet." - // Anita Milićević (muzika.hr)
