Warning: This review is long, dragged out, and loaded with lyrics and weird links. Do not read if you are offended by any of the following: fucking cuss words, sarcasm, satanism, crack rock, or genitalia. Remember, Jesus loves you, even though he was a shitty carpenter that died nearly 2000 years .
Warning: This review is long, dragged out, and loaded with lyrics and weird links. Do not read if you are offended by any of the following: fucking cuss words, sarcasm, satanism, crack rock, or genitalia. Remember, Jesus loves you, even though he was a shitty carpenter that died nearly 2000 years ago. Oh yea, don't be afraid to click all the links, they all open in a seperate window as not to interrupt your review reading.
Next is "NC". The lyrics are rather poetic in comparison to the others, and since they are fairly short I'll post them all.
"Where have all the blue skies gone // And to the east a toxic dawn // Poison is the wind that blows // Who inhales it no one knows // Why does so much feel like less // Resigned into death's warm caress // Sickly sweet is melted skin// Greed becomes our greatest sin // Putrefacation, rot, decay // We'll shoot your kids at school today // Why does so much feel like less // Resigned into death's warm caress"
Like whoa! Anyhow, the next song is the organ-ified interlude. It gave me a boner, just like your grandfather.
The next song is the über-rockin' "S.T.I."(or stop the insanity for you acronymphobics). Yes, it is true, this song is cooler than Vanilla Ice, yet more abbrasive than the sand paper I used to try and remove my genital warts.
"we have the // white & blue & bloody red // stars and stripes for the mis-lead // convenince stores with neon lights // where burger kings rule tainted nights // stop the insanity let's end humanity // kill all earth's residents let's start with the presidents ".
Crack City Rockers is probably the catchiest song on Mediocre Generica. That isn't to say it's all that soft of a song, because it's not. It is, however, about being homeless.
"no panhandling they say it isnt a job // oh but i disagree ya ignorant slob // but there may come a day, when yer found down & out // and the hateful replies will fill ya with doubt // ya might be a skinhead ya might be a punk // just give us a quarter so we can get drunk // thank you for shopping and please come again"
another healthy helping of lyrical love:
"i got assualted by officer friendly // on the 4th of july stick a needle in my eye // i said "i didn't do nothin'" & "whats this all about?" // he said "resisting arrest" as his pulled his baton out // spitting bile and blood as they left me for dead // my thoughts leaked out through a fissure in my head // and the last one left is: is my bad luck running out?"
The reviewing process has become more dull than Al Gore at a funeral, so I think I'm going to have to speed things up. Burning in H20 is a rad song. Why? Because I fucking said so. Just peep dese lyrics yo:
"you're obedient dogs, greasing the cogs // running the machine // how many lives are lost in the gears // to cover yer crimes over all of these years?"
With The Sickness sounds almost like a F-Minus song. This is, you guessed it, a good thing. It's short and hard-fucking-core. Here are the complete lyrics:
"The I.M.F, The N.S.A // puppets are planted by the CIA // the new world order of a new decay // it all goes to shit as the ignorant pray // and bullets and bombs kill all // you're to blame as you fall"
OK, now we have Born To Die. This song was originally written and recorded by Choking Victim. It has been revamped for this record, and I can safely say it is much better than the original.
"Born to die and you get to sit and watch yer t.v. set // believe the lies before yer eyes credit cards & apple pies // 50 stars to blind yer eyes 13 stripes to hypnotize // free thought is gone you'll never see yer just a pawn"
It's time for the last song(thank Satan). It is named "Gay Rude Boy Instrumental". Rude? I'd say so. Gay? Well, I highly doubt it has intercourse with instrumentals of the same sex, but you never know. This track is filled with happy-go-lucky toe-tapping goodness. Perhaps that's the kind of gay it is.
For more insight into the bums in Leftover Crack, check out their web site leftovercrack.com. Also, read the interviews on their site. These guys give the best interviews around. Oh, and to anyone who fails to see through the Satanism... it isn't real. None of these guys believe that there is an entity named Satan, nor do they worship him. The same applies to God from what I can gather(unless they speak of burning churches and crucifixes in a good way). If you don't like this album, there is honestly something wrong with you.
Oh yea, I almost forgot. This album was released on September 11th. The weird part(although obviously coincidence) is the lyrics to the song Atheist Anthem. Check out this passage:
