about

Welcome to our 2nd album "Blood On Our Front Stoop."

This album is about Human Rights. It's about unification in the scene. It's about sparking a positive mindset and embracing our differences as humans sharing this earth. It's not politically charged in the sense of a two party monopolized system.

We won't be bullied into picking a side. We believe that big business politics, political parties, and agendas are all corrupt and have witnessed it first hand. (May God truly and sincerely have mercy on all our shortcomings.)

As a band we believe that everyone should have a voice, shelter, and food. Being Homeless and feeding the Homeless should not be a crime. We try and tackle serious issues in our Community of Chicago and beyond. We stand against hatred. We believe in a Scene where Homophobia, Sexism, Classism, and Racism are not acceptable. "If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything."

Unity. -2Minute Minor

Track Name: Can't Be Defeated
This goes out to the positive youth!
The working class skinhead crew!
The ones that seek the truth & keep the faith!
The old schoolers united!

You cut me to the bone
Why won't you just leave it alone?
The sins of the father are passed onto the son

Chorus:
Death isn't a prison sentence
We can't be defeated!
Life isn't a prison sentence
We shall be free!

You can jail revolutionaries
But you can't jail a revolution
You can't hold down the underground
It won't be held down

Positive Youth, Punks & Skins unite!
Positive Youth, Punks & Skins
We must stand up for what is right!

Salt in the wound the time has come
The sins of the father are passed onto the son

Chorus

WE WILL BELIEVE!
WE SHALL BE FREE!
Track Name: It's A Disease
...And this is where it begins!!!

An epidemic swallows our streets
Crime runs rampant, self defeat
Self destruct form the outside in
Where did the division begin?
It's a shame! What a shame!
What a compromise
An epidemic swallows our lives!

It's disease! It's disease!
Poverty builds up the thieves
It's disease! It's disease!
Working class pleads for peace

We must stick together
Division leads us blind
This country is ours to unite!
Love for your family
Trust for your neighbor
PMA for your brothers & sisters!
Track Name: Soda Tax
I don't want a beer or a soda pop...
Pass me a LaCroix it's all I want!
I don't want a coffee or a sugary drink...
Pass me a LaCroix that's how I think!
I don't want red bull or a fruit punch...
Pass me a LaCroix I love it so much!
Track Name: What's The Use?
Sacred life, sacred liver, sacred lung
Sacred life, sacred heart surgery
These tracks lead to your veins
The mirror haunts you fierce
A shell of once remains

Chorus:
What the hell have we done?
What on earth shall become?
Junkies, junkies on the loose
Can you tell me what's the use?

The hard life has caught up to you
I long for a spirit clean & true
Spill the blood, now wait for the flood
What the hell have we all gone & done?

Chorus
Track Name: Blood On Our Front Stoop
911 it's an emergency call
Where the cops at?
Is it their job to stall?
It's hot & muggy on these Chicago streets
Been an hour since I called the police

Chorus:
We've got blood on our front stoop
What are we to do?
We've got blood on our front stoop
The violence is terribly true
We've got blood on our front stoop
Where are the boys in blue?
We've got blood on our front stoop
Blood on our front stoop

Gangbangers shooting up the neighborhood
Outside of my house is all this blood
Called the police and don't even know why
They turn an eye to the actual crime!

Chorus

CPD, keep it violent free
Bad cop! Crooked cop!
CPD, corruption is what I see
When will it stop? 2x
Track Name: Words To The Wise
I wake up every morning and I'm a Skinhead!
I go to bed at night and I'm a Skinhead!
I do two things greatly,
That's smash racism & erase hatred!
If you're not about that life you can't sit with us!
& if you call yourself a Skinhead,
& represent anything other than unity,
Regardless of creed or color,
Then you can't sit with us!
You ain't about that life,
& you need to take that mask off
& stop calling yourself a Skinhead!
STRAIGHT UP!
Track Name: Tried & True
Spirit of 69 few
Hardcore lives it's true
Labeled a subculture of racism and hate
The media fed you a line and you took the bait

Chorus:
Skinhead! Skinhead! Let's take it back!
Bonehead! Bonehead! It's brains they lack!
Racism's a plague caused by hate
Only God should determine our fate

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Crucified Skins I tip my hat to you
Beaten, tattered black & blue
You shave your head and wear Doc Martin boots
Does not mean you're an ignorant Neo-Nazi tool

Chorus

You raise your pint, I'll raise my first
I quit drinking, but I still get pissed
Injustice still grinds my gears
The media plays off our fears

Oi! Oi! Is what we shout!
To the S.H.A.R.P. Crew this song's about
Oi! Oi! Is what we shout!
To the Goon Crew this song's about
Oi!
Track Name: One Step At A Time
We're killing ourselves
We're underselling ourselves
We sip that poison one sip at time
We inject this poison into our veins
We fill our lungs with poisonous smoke

Chorus:
We're taking back our lives today!
We're claiming back our lives in this way!
One step, one step at a time
One step, you know that it's mine

I have to face my fears head on
I have to face myself in the mirror all along
All these demons inside of my head
I can't break down this body on loan

Chorus

This is for my family!
This is for my crew!
Brothers & sisters!
This goes out to you!

WE'RE TAKING BACK OUR LIVES!

Chorus
Track Name: Probert
I wish Bob Probert was still alive
So we could punch Nazis side by side
Proud boys stealing our Fred Perry shirts
The enforcer & I would punch them till it hurts

Knocking out the KKK
Number 24 is the hero of the day 2x

Bruise Brothers smash racism in the face
The Goon to put fascism in its place
Track Name: Tent City
Tent City in our city
We woke up from the American Dream
Reality sets in and it's just another scheme
Tent City in our city
Big business owns our every thought
Everything's for sale when it can be bought

Tent City in our city
This is our home, this is our spot
Our city, Tent City
This is our home, it's all we got!

It's all we got!

Homelessness is not a crime
The Uptown mayor can't spare a dime
He sits in his office like a greedy fat cat
Treating the poor like Chicago street rats

Our city, Tent City
This is our home, this is our spot
Tent City in our city
This is our home, it's all we got!

Food Not Bombs keeps getting shut down
Free food shouldn't be banned in Uptown
The eviction notice came today
Replacing homes with bike lanes

Tent City in our city
Bring it back!
It's all we got!
Track Name: Unite The Crew
Keep the hardcore & punk scene alive
Practice unity & watch us all thrive
Black, yellow, brown & white
Join together for an unforgettable sight

Chorus:
UNITE THE CREW! UNITE THE CREW!
I'm not better than you!
UNITE THE CREW! UNITE THE CREW!
Respect through & through!
UNITE THE CREW! UNITE THE CREW!
Embrace the differences is how we do!
UNITE THE CREW! UNITE THE CREW!
Positivity in oldschool!

El racismo no tiene lugar en nuestra escena
Música de unión para que el mundo sea libre
Nunca no haremos daño y haremos de este un mundo mejor

Racism's not allowed in our scene
Unity music for the world to be free
We won't tear each other down
We're building up humanity

Chorus

Sexism is a cancerous trait
Homophobia is nothing but hate
Empowerment message is what we preach
Our brothers and sisters is who we teach

Unite The Crew! 3x
I'm not better than you!
Unite The Crew! 3x
Respect through & through!
Unite The Crew! 3x
Embrace the differences!
Unite The Crew! 2x
Positivity in oldschool!
