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)

Track Name: Revolution At Home
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
Track Name: Compassion Is Gone
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
Track Name: The Western World
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
Track Name: Bad Things In, Good Things Out
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
Track Name: Unemployed, Yet Still Busy
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
Track Name: I'm Not Like You
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
Track Name: Bum Night
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
Track Name: Can You Feel Anything These Days
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
Track Name: Half Human/Half Happy
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
Track Name: Oppression
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
