CITY SLICKERS (Original Version) – Single PREVIEW LINK :

CITY SLICKERS (Original VERSION) focuses on the Gross misconduct of City Financial Sector Traders and Decision Makers and there scant disregard to corporate responsibility specifically with regard to social irresponsibility and drug and amphetamine use throughout the London City Square mile.

The Taxes that have been masked/hidden away by effective “WEALTH MANAGEMENT” by Corporations and City Workers alike in the London City Square Mile Alone cover the entire UK “BENEFIT STREET” annual bill so why are the Media and political scaremongers focusing on the press on the endless immigration loafer headlines, migration of workers, the supposed work shy north, endless processed food diets from food banks and people on the dole with flat screen TV’s when the real criminals , jobs for the boys, and turning a blind eye to completely unacceptable anti-social behavior are laughing it up and living it up on tax breaks down south… This track is about getting you to think about that,… whether you like the song or not.. well,. who gives a damn,

How do I know about it ? Because I have been right in the heart of it..this is a wake up call for the UK .. Don’t believe what the Media and Politicians have been spoon feeding you.. Sick of the cover up / sick of the lies… We are all being cheated !

The Taiji Dolphin Industry is the most lucrative part of Sea Mammal fishing in Japan. Live Dolphins caught through a process od confusing the mammals during migration with sonic attack makes them an easy target for cove based fishermen.

The herded Dolphins, despite the lifelong Trauma caused by sonic attack, are sold for 100,000.00 Dollars a head to the captive animal trade, dolphinariums. Live Animal centers and the like.

A Dolphin in captivity is worth around 3m dollars profit a year in sales revenue.

There are only ever so many places in the cages, and the oversupply of dolphin’s results in a pennies for punches slaughter to mmaximize financial return on the balance of the captured pods and herds where they are killed for the Meat Market.

Taiji, is the last whaling cove in Japan as the others have now exhausted all natural Dolphin migration. Taiji Cove stands a secluded bay, responsible for the one stop farming of Dolphin meat and the Mecca Black Friday shopping paradise for the selling of live dolphins into captivity.

The Japanese Government are trying to legitimise a practice that almost every country in the world has said no too. The IWC, tasked with managing the whaling issue, are no longer effective and do not classify small citations under the whaling charter.

Japanese Government overseas funding has caressed the political halls of 3rd world and island nations up and down the whaling route where financial investment comes with an invitation to join the IWC and then vote and support the Japanese position on whaling.

There is no hope of balances legislative control of the Whaling issue while matters lie in the hands of the IWC.

Japanese media blackout on Dolphin Hunting is keeping Japanese people in the dark. The Dolphin meat industry over the last 35 years has been kept quiet. Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo is generally unaware that the industry is operating on scale.

There is no active eco/environmental group in Japan able to raise and successfully challenge the Dolphin industry issue. If the slaughter of Dolphin’s is tradition then why the Media Blackout ? I mean there are hardly any sales of Dolphin Meat, who actually eats Dolphin Meat ? Why the Media Blackout ?

Recent health checks and tests on whale meat product sold throughout the Japanese mainland have raised question on the level of Mercury found in tinned meats. Oddly the levels of Mercury are corresponding with the of Dolphin and not Whale Meat. Raising the Question ?

Where does Whale Meat come from ?

2000 Dolphins, this year alone ? Slaughtered ? Where did the Meat go ?

Why the Media Blackout ?

Why the Media Blackout ?

This Dolphin thing is just another “Horsemeat” horror story, one fishing industry feeding the other with it’s cast off’s. Dolphin or Whale meat is all one in the same, a sick cycle, passing off poisoned meat to an ill informed and unsuspecting Public.

I mean WTF, It’s psychotic. It’s like every single living sea mammal is in danger if it swims through Japanese waters ? In Taiji they are trying to promote Dolphin meat as safe and part of the Community by giving it away free, to school, for like lunch meat ! I mean after all the studies on poisoning ? Have they actually seen the effects of Mercury on an unborn foetus, the highest risk of deformities and mental illness ? Is that why the Government are keeping this subject off all channels?

How could any mother let their children eat this shit ? Come on, wake up and recognise this for what it is !

Despite the blackout, there’s no more excuses, no more double talk. Don’t let it be said that you don’t know about it. Japanese people don’t let it be said that we agree, or in anyway support this.

So,. basically Japan have been in and out of court for 4 years since 2010 disputing whaling hunting rights.

They were hunting with this scientific permit and bagging around 450 whales a season,. basically 10,000 whales since the permit was authorized for supposed scientific research. So the World court questioned why the scientific research, after so many whats, was still inconclusive and basically passed a judgement that the permit just a smoke screen for commercial whale hunting.

The ban was passed This year.

Shinzo Abe the Japanese PM on his post ban visit to Australia make a speech that Japan would obey the ban as they were a good international citizen but that they would seek for reinstatement of the permit.

Frankly This is bullshit, Japanese Whaling trawlers are still out there and how can we accept Japan’s statement about being a good international citizen when they still obsessively pursue the reinstatement of scientific permits to feed a national food fetish ? I mean how popular really is Whale Meant, Whale Bacon ?,. Do Japanese people seriously, i mean seriously on mass agree with the mass hunting, to a point of risk, extinction, one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet ? Come on , its just lies upon lies, the same old story,. and we are tired of it,. sick and tired of the killing , sick and tired of the suited and respectable classes failing, society again and again by supporting publicly base, unnecessary and barbaric stone age traditions. its time to wipe the fake smiles and handshakes in and out of the courtroom and political halls and stop with the hunting.

London DEMO JAN172015

Tell Japan to stop killing Dolphins !
Close down the aquariums !
Close down Seaworld !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !

….Where animals are brutalized and slaughtered ! Hundreds ! Thousands! Every year !

Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be ! be ! be ! be ! be !

Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !

Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free ! Taiji, let them be !

Stop the slaughter in the water ! Free the Dolphins of Taiji !

So Why are you at the Demo today ?

Do we really want to see Dolphin’s perform mindless tricks over and over again ? Or do we want to see them in the Oceans wild and free ?
and I think the answer that most people would give is that we want them to be wild and free. and the senseless murder of the other Dolphin’s that are not captured for aquariums, they’re captured because in Japan they are still eating Dolphin meat. The Dolphin meat is filled with mercury and they are poisoning their children with the Dolphin meat, it’s being served at school dinners and in Japan they have to eat their school dinners, because that’s the law. They are poisoning their own children, so, that’s why I am here today. I think, we are destroying our planet, we are destroying ourselves. The human race cannot find peace until we make peace with our fellow animals. They feel pain the same as us, we have to stop , it;s a holocaust.

Now Dolphin’s around the world are under pressure like never before. Because of pollution, because of fishing, because of climate change. We’re not certain of what population numbers we can have; we know that they are falling rapidly and that they are highly endangered in many parts of the world yet they have no proper legal protection whatsoever, be it in national countries like Japan, or International agreements such as “CITES” and that is not right. The way that these animals are killed, the way that no one is keeping track of the impact on their numbers is an absolute disgrace. and the fact that the Japanese Government think they can get away with this and that the rest of the world will fall silent is not going to happen anymore.

What I am really pleased about, is that this issue is back on the top of the Media agenda again but its not on the top of the Media agenda because of the newspapers and the television. It’s because of people like you here in the cities around the world and because of the growing power of social media; because your’e putting it on Twitter, your’e putting it on Facebook, your’e getting angry, your forcing Al Jazeera and the BBC to get this back on our television screens to tell us the real horror that is going on in Taiji and the other parts of Japan as well. We know that “The Cove” in 2009 was a great film, we know it deserved and Oscar but it’s now 5 years ago and memories are very short and all of us here must keep this on the global media agenda because this is an absolute disgrace.

Now what happens in Taiji impacts all of us, all of us who care about wildlife, all of us who care about the future and protection of intelligent animals like Dolphins. As I said, over 20,000 of these animals are killed of the Japanese coast every year, nearly 2, to 2 and a half thousand of them are killed in Taiji Cove. Now there are many issues around Taiji. Lot’s of discussion about culture and we saw our friend on the road earlier who said we are all terrorists because we do not understand the need for Japanese people to eat Dolphin meat. Let me tell you something about Dolphin meat, it’s pretty disgusting stuff. No one really wants to eat it. It;s got lots of Mercury in it so it’s pretty unhealthy as well and most of it is passed of as Whale meat in the Japanese market, to get to be a bit more valuable and all most certainly people don’t want to eat Whale meat in Japan either and most of that end’s up as Dog food so that’s what we are really talking about here. All these animals are being killed largely to end up as Dog food. That’s an absolute disgrace.

and the actual killing of these animals; we know over the years that the Japanese have been ashamed. They have tried to hide it from the Public, putting tarpaulin, putting barriers in so that you can’t see what’s really going on. and trying to ensure; they say; that they kill these animals in a humane way. We no longer cut their throats they tell you, we no longer have the sea running red with the blood of these dead animals , no we take them out of the water in a humane way, we put them together then we stick spikes into their spinal cords and that kills them quickly we are told, well it doesn’t ! We know that scientists and veterinary experts will tell you, it takes about 7 minutes to kill a Dolphin like that in excruciating pain. Not only that, they do it in front of the other Dolphin’s that they’re killing too, these animals in such social groups and such intelligence are slaughtered in front of each other.

Now those slaughter methods would not be allowed in any slaughterhouse for a cow anywhere in the world but they are allowed in Japan to kill Dolphins which is an absolute disgrace. The actual value of one of those Dolphins is only about 600 dollars. If that was really all what this was worth it would all be over by now, no culture would keep that going, but there’s another darker side to this business that “Care for the Wild” and other charities have been focusing on and that’s the Marine Park and the Dolphinarium business.

They are buying Dolphins from Taiji. The pretty bottle-nose Dolphins that you may go and see in theme parks if you are stupid and ignorant enough not to think, are worth nearly 300,000 dollars each at the top of the market. Selling one of those Dolphin’s will bring in more money than any fisherman can earn in a year. and that’s what is keeping this whole slaughter going. Its not culture, it’s capitalism, it’s commercial greed in the blood of Dolphin’s and that greed is feeding the Marine Park business around the world.

Now all of us, I hope, have had a chance to see “BlackFish”. What a wonderful piece of work alongside “The Cove”. Brave Directors who have worked hard to produce a film that has really brought home the horror behind the scenes of the commercial glossy PR machines that is Seaworld. Now Seaworld will tell you, we’re not involved in the Taiji hunts and the Taiji drives, yes, but they are taking offspring from animals that are taken from Taiji so they are part of it and if Seaworld are successful then in the developing world and the United Arab Emirates, in Egypt, in South Korea and other places where there is a demand for more Marine Parks, and when they open up they’ve gotta find their Dolphin’s and they will be heading to Taiji Cove or the Solomon Islands or other parts of the world where they will round up these animals in this inhumane and disgusting way.

So all of us have to ask ourselves this question, why is it that these animals don’t have enough protection ? Why is it that we are able to exploit them for greed and put them in concrete jungle around the world ? Why is it in the so called modern civilized world we still want to see “Flipper” doing backdrops when we know that all his parents have been murdered and that he lives an inhumane life that is sending him gradually crazy in the most inhumane conditions in many parts of the world.

It’s no longer acceptable, It’s no longer acceptable that a developed rich country like Japan can get away with this. It’s no longer acceptable that the International community does nothing about it. So there are a number of things that must happen here. “CITES”, The international Framework of United Nations that actually does protect the trade endangered species needs to up-list Dolphins and needs to make sure that you can no longer take them from hunts like Taiji and put them into Marine Parks. That should be happening , there should be an international drive to make that happen. We need to know more about the numbers of Dolphin’s around our coastline and the pressure that they’re under. We know that fisherman are killing them, we know that we are killing them with boats, we know that their numbers are being impacted by pollution and climate change and there is no way that you can justify killing something like 20,000 a year in Japan without anyone taking a blind bit of notice.

I am pleased to see that Caroline Kennedy is the new Japanese Ambassador for the United States and has raised concerns. I am pleased to see that MP’s in the House of Commons are starting to debate and discuss this issue because people like you have raised it with them. I am pleased to see that Congressman Government in the United States are doing the same because people in America are angry, quite rightly angry about this too. But then Governments have got to take some tough decisions. If the Japanese keep slaughtering, they you have to start threatening them with Trade Sanctions, you’ve got to say to the Japanese, if you want to start importing your cars, your electronic products we’re going to put tariffs on them if you keep killing Dolphin’s. Are those Dolphin’s more valuable to you that your Nissan Car Business ? Or your Sony Electronics Business which is worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year ? no it isn’t ! That’s the only message they are going to understand that’s going to shut down this Business.

We’ve also got to have more regulation and control of these so called Marine Parks. The international framework for these organizations is highly abused. The so called International Aquarium Association has the Japanese body within it’s affiliate membership despite the fact they they say they are not in agreement with what goes on in Taiji Cove. We know the Japanese abuse the system at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and that allows them to so called, kill Minke Whales in large numbers in the southern oceans under a loophole for so called scientific research. They dump that Whale-meat into the market. If they weren’t killing Whales in that way, the wouldn’t be passing Dolphin meat off as Whale meat either so we need to shut the loop hole in the International Whaling Commission and we need to stop the Japanese killing those Whales.

That’s quite right why the New Zealand Government and the Australian Government are taking Legal action against the Japanese Government in the Haig, I wish them well with that but at the same time we must have actions to protect Dolphins too, all of us have a responsibility for this. What you are doing here today is fantastic. This is civic society at it’s best. People giving up their time, coming together, designing their own posters, their Facebook sites and telling everyone they know that this is a disgusting mess.

Now the Police are telling us they might get upset if we show one of these gory pictures to a member of the Public, well don’t hold back, keep showing the gory pictures because the Japanese Government have been doing everything they can to keep those gory images away from everyone and its your responsibility, and all of our responsibility to get the truth out there.

You tell people how disgusting this trade is ! You tell them how brutal it is how these animals are slaughtered. You tell them what happens to these Dolphin’s that are taken away and put into Marine Parks. You tell them that it’s disgusting that they go to a Marine Park in Benidorm or Egypt or any part of the word without thinking about the consequences. The more we get that message out there, the more we can put a stop to this brutality. Thank you very much to the Dolphin Taiji Action Group here in the UK. Thank you very much to “Sea Shepard” who have done a fantastic job. Thank you to the brave people who are in Japan taking pictures, going down, despite the imitation, bullying and threats they take and please give your support to Charities like “Care for the Wild” because what we are doing to right tourism campaign is putting pressure on the International tourism business who act through the Travel Agency businesses to say that it’s no longer acceptable to be sending your tourists, your people to these Marine Parks. We are having that discussion with the airlines, with Virgin Holidays and other Businesses but we need your support.

The more support we can have, the more impact we can have. So we’ll get back on that street, we’ll make some bloody noise and we’ll male sure everyone’s going to listen to us. This disgusting slaughter will stop but it will stop because we’ll shame Japan, and we’ll shame the international community to stop it for good and this world will be a better place without it. Thank you very much.

Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !

Stop the slaughter in the water ! Free the Dolphins of Taiji !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !

FISHINABOX Whalesong ホエールソング Whale Wars

Whale song is a spotlight on the Australian Japan Summit this year after the World Court judgement on the suspension of scientific whaling permits for Japan and the endless whaling wars between Japan and the Eco Warrior resistance.

STORYBOARD: ( Whale Wars )

WHALERS – JAPANESE SPOKESMAN
我々は、商業捕鯨の再開に向けて、鯨の資源管理に欠かせないデータを収集するための研究を行い、
また、海外からの商業捕鯨についての理解を得るべく更なる努力を続けています。

捕鯨団体が海洋哺乳類を無慈悲に搾取しているという外国人の見方とは対照的に、捕鯨を行っている漁村の人々は動物に敬意を払い、狩猟期の終わりには供養を行っています。

このような日本の文化が理解されていないのは、大変残念なことです。

TRANSLATION:
We aim for the resumption of commercial whaling by conducting whaling research in order to obtain scientific data indispensable for the management of whale resources.

To that end, We will step up efforts further to get understanding from the international community.

In contrast to the foreign perception that whaling communities mercilessly exploit the marine mammals, whaling towns show respect to the animals, with religious services at the end of every hunting season.
It is regrettable that this part of Japanese culture is not understood.

ECO-WARRIORS:
So, basically Japan have been in and out of court for 4 years since 2010 disputing whaling hunting rights. They were hunting with this scientific permit and bagging around 450 whales a season,. basically 10,000 whales since the permit was authorized for supposed scientific research. So the World court questioned why the scientific research, after so many whats, was still inconclusive and basically passed a judgement that the permit just a smoke screen for commercial whale hunting.

The ban was passed his year.

Shinzō Abe the Japanese PM on his post ban visit to Australia make a speech that Japan would obey the ban as they were a good international citizen but that they would seek for reinstatement of the permit.

Frankly This is bullshit, Japanese Whaling trawlers are still out there and how can we accept Japan’s statement about being a good international citizen when they still obsessively pursue the reinstatement of scientific permits to feed a national food fetish ? I mean how popular really is Whale Meant, Whale Bacon ?,. Do Japanese people seriously, i mean seriously on mass agree with the mass hunting, to a point of risk, extinction, one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet ? Come on , its just lies upon lies, the same old story,. and we are tired of it,. sick and tired of the killing , sick and tired of the suited and respectable classes failing, society again and again by supporting unnecessary and barbaric stone age traditions. its time to wipe the fake smiles and handshakes in and out of the courtroom and political halls and stop with the hunting.

Are you ready.
(Verse 1)
I’ll be getting down like I’m in the system of a
See me get down with the syndrome and your mother
I’ll be coming soon tell your sister tell your brother
Cos they ain’t seen nothing like it cos there ain’t no other
One that can do what I can do, and what you do to me I’ll do to you times 2
I’m Tommy two shits cos mine is always better, you might be a bus but I’m a fucking double decker
(Chorus)
Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready
For what you’re about to receive
Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready
For me
(Verse 2)
You don’t even know what you wanna do
What I wanna be what I see’s right in front of me
When I’m gonna do it know I wanna do it properly
And hell I’ve been through it and I’m saying there’s no stopping me
All I wanna know is can you feel me
Any time you see me better know it is the real me
I need to make this music thing work cos working 9 to 5 well it’s damn near killed me
(Chorus)
(Verse 3)
Going crazy like I’m over the cuckoos nest
Not doing it now but I know I gotta do my best
Long way to the top and I don’t know if I will reach
I haven’t reached my peak yet and no I’m not an idiot
Have a look at me and tell me what you see
Many people think they do but they don’t know me
Show me something that I’ve never seen before and I guarantee that I can show you something more
(Chorus)

brokwen bottles NEW WEB

Broken bottles
(Chorus)
Broken bottles on the floor
I think it’s time for me to clean up
But I don’t live here anymore
And still ain’t living life too clean cut
Sweeping under carpets
Wipe away the dust
I don’t know why I had to start it
If I was only gonna let it rust
Only gonna let it rust
Only gonna let it rust
Only gonna let it rust
(Verse 1)
Getting in at 8am on Sunday morning once again
My housemate asks me where I’ve been I say I really don’t know
I’ve been here and I’ve been there the whole time sitting in my chair
Now rolling up without a care I hope these feelings won’t go
Cos then it’s back to reality
So it can take another stab at me
I’ll just let my mind escape from gravity
Let it find its way and waver on the line of sanity, I’m saying man how can it be
That everything I’ve known and everything I’ve seen
Every way I’ve grown and everything I’ve seen
Should all amount to something but it makes no odds to me
Now let me tell you what I’m left with
(Chorus)
(Verse 2)
I’m walking down the street with my hood up and my head down
I don’t wanna see a thing and I don’t wanna hear a sound
All I got is me and I ain’t got no place to be
I need to try think differently cos I just can’t get what I need
What is it I need and what is it I want
What is it you speak and what is my response
I take it day by day so I can just get through the months
But for now I’m still left with……………..

……….Broken bottles on the floor
Think it’s time for me to clean up
But I don’t live here anymore

Called her a cunt
(Verse 1)
My friend came up to me and he told me what he did last night, he said
I called my girl the worst thing I’ve ever said to her in my entire life
I asked him what he called her, he said, I was very blunt
I can’t believe that I said it, but I called her a cunt
Have you ever said that to your girl
Then I replied with a simple well
(Chorus)
I called her a cunt at the station
I called her a cunt at home
I called her a cunt on the Internet
And I called her a cunt on the phone
I called her a cunt at the station
I called her a cunt at home
I called her a cunt in public
I always call her a cunt on my own
(Verse 2)
I called her a cunt in Columbia
I called her a cunt in Crete
I called her a cunt in the kitchen
I called her a cunt in the street
I called her a cunt in kfc
And I called her a cunt in the club
I called her a cunt as I k.m.t’d
But I called her a cunt with love
I called her a cunt over breakfast
And I called her a cunt at lunch
I called her a cunt over dinner
I always call her a cunt when we munch
I called her a cunt in the morning
And I called her a cunt at night
I call her a cunt in the daytime
I call her a cunt whenever I like
(Chorus)
(Verse 3)
I called her a cunt at the farmyard
And I called her a cunt in the forest
I called her a cunt in a field
I even called her a cunt in the florist
I called her a cunt in the Caribbean
And I called her a cunt on the coast
I called her a cunt at the coliseum
Called her a cunting dry toast
I called her a cunt in the bath
And I called her a cunt in the shower
I called her a cunt for a minute
And I called her a cunt for an hour

With a cunt cunt here and a cunt cunt there
Here a cunt there a cunt everywhere a cunt x4
Cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt
(Chorus)
Cunt

04 UPLOAD CURTAINCALL

Curtain call
(Verse 1)
Let’s crack open a beer
By the end of the night no I won’t be seeing clear
But we’ve still got a few hours
So we can just sit and drink and chill right here
The Suns out and so are all the girls
Why don’t you come over here and let me rock your world
I know that might seem a bit far fetched
Cos you are like a golden throne and I am like a park bench
But fuck it tonight I’m getting on it and there’s not a person on the planet who can stop it
Cos I’m flying now and that’s a feeling I know won’t be dying out
(Chorus)
Tonight, I’m losing all my senses
Tonight, is gonna be relentless
Tonight, I’m finding where the end is
Who would’ve thought that my first night would also be my last
(Verse 2)
Let’s make our way to the dance floor
But of course not before we go to the bar
You already know what I’ll ask for
And even though we’ve only gone yards we have gone too far
Cos Mandy and Richard are joining us and I hope you don’t mind
Let’s dance our way into the crowd and drink until we all go blind
I’m a man on a mission and my mission is accomplished
But I’m not gonna stop I’m gonna do some dumb shit
Like I always do, and now it’s time to go back to the room
But the party’s not done, we’ve still got more drink yes we’ve still got more fun
We’ve still got more hours until we see the sun
So for now let’s just enjoy
(Chorus)
(Verse 3)
Now we’re back in the apartment partying as hard as when we first started
Before we’d even departed I took the stance that I won’t be going half hearted
And now I’m living up to that quest
Cos right now I’m a right royal mess
Richards laid out on the chest of drawers
And this nights been one of the best
But then things took a funny turn
Us likely lads will never bloody learn
Things in plain sight where they shouldn’t be
And through the window in came security
Caught in the act and not much we can do
We even offered them a back hander
Wiped it on the floor and asked them where’s the proof
Then on his vest he taps a fucking go pro camera
So that’s us on the first night ejected
Nothing we can now but accept it
One thing that we learned for certain
If you’re gonna do drugs then close the bloody curtain
(Chorus)

05 website

Shards
(Verse 1)
I look outside, while looking in
I’m seeing new things, I’ve already seen
I’m going places, while staying put
I’m moving backwards while I’m stuck on my front foot
(Pre-chorus)
Getting Richard on the line
And gather up the shards
I’ve got the winning ticket this time
I’ve gone too far but I’ve only gone yards, but I’ve only gone yards
(Chorus)
And they think I’ve taken it too far
But I’ve only gone yards
And they think I’ve taken it too far
But I’ve only gone yards
And they think I’ve taken it too far
But I’ve only gone yards
But I’ve only gone yards, yards
(Verse 2)
Wrap me up, in grace and sin
I’m at the end but where the fuck do I begin
Leave the queue, but tow the line
Crumbled silence, show me yours and I’ll show you mine
(Pre-chorus)
(Chorus)
(Pre-chorus)

Swim that length
(Verse 1)
A stumble on a lead is what I call a power trip
A girl with eczema on her chest has truly got some cracking tits
I shit so hard and break the bowl that’s what I call a cracking shit
When I roll through I’m always shouting yo what’s crackalackin bitch
I’m black and rich, oh wait I’m not I’m fucking white and poor
The once abhorred is now adored and screaming out for more
The boards I walked the air I soared until I ended at your door
Upon arrival what I saw is that I needed something more
And that is not what you gave me
I didn’t know what to do
But then my boy he said something
And now I’m saying to you
(Chorus)
Everybody come you gotta swim that length
Don’t nobody stop until you swim that length
Everybody jump in and just swim that length
I said swim that length you know swim that length x2
Tell me have you got the strength
To come with me and swim that length
(Verse 2)
Fuck jumping fences I’ll just run straight through em
Please forgive me father cos I know not what I’m doing
Actually I do and couldn’t give a single fuck
Which is possibly the reason why I’m shit out of luck
Take me up as I bring you down to my level
Where posh nosh is just a sandwich toasted on a brevvel
Like billy idol when I’m drunk I yell like a rebel
Now can you hold my drink while I dance with the devil
And he’s a very good dancer
Ask me to go slow but know I’ll surely go faster
Look at me I’m like dry wall I’m getting plastered
If you ask me what to do now this will be my answer
(Chorus)
(Breakdown)
Take it one step further that is what it means
Take it past the furthest point you’ve ever been x2
(Chorus)

Yes no yes (the backslap song)
(Verse 1)
Now let me show these fools the way that is supposed to be
Best thing since sliced bread because I put it in a toaster, see
You must be joking me, to me you’re just a broken g
And I don’t give a fuck when I’m at home and I am toking cheese
I put bread up my arse and spit out toast
You’re full of gas while I am hotter than most
I ain’t trying to boast but I fucked your girl so hard
Next thing I knew man I was fucking her ghost
Phone fags wallet bus pass keys iPod check
Every time I go to leave the house, my god
The futures not bright or orange it’s odd
And you’ll never catch me slipping when you see me out on my tod
2 pennies in my pocket hoping they’ll mate
Because my monetary situation is in a dyer state
I don’t know where im going and I don’t believe in fate
But while you’re down there love can you just please fellate
(Chorus)
Oh oh you don’t wanna backslap
You don’t wanna you don’t wanna you don’t wanna backslap x2
(Verse 2)
I rack myself a line and sniff up all the confidence
As the powder hits my throat Columbia gets compliments
An overwhelming feeling now to show my dominance
And I don’t think I’ll ever give a fuck about the consequence
Fuck crystal I wanna jagerbomb
You know there ain’t a vip list that my name be on
I drink tap water never evian
I don’t know French but I know I’m tres bien
F dot raser, Fraser or just call me strap man
Never actually held a strap but always armed with a backhand slap
Backslap have a smack from little jacks hand
Watch what you do you don’t want one across the back man
Leave me alone when I’m having a kip
Cos when I get woken up yes I can sometimes act a prick
If it becomes apparent that you need a pistol whip
That’s when I whip my weapon out and slap you with my dick
(Chorus x2)

CITY SLICKERS Guy Fawkes DUBSTEP Remix – Single

Dubstep Remix of CITY SLICKERS due for released on www.fishinaboxrecords.com on November 5th

PREVIEW LINK :

CITY SLICKERS focuses on the Gross misconduct of City Financial Sector Traders and Decision Makers and there scant disregard to corporate responsibility specifically with regard to social irresponsibility and drug and amphetamine use throughout the London City Square mile.

Lyrics:

People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behavior because they don’t want to lose a key employee. Someone who can make a lot of Money.

A lot of Money

A lot of Money

I ain’t seen a vicar’s daughter of that skunk mate !

Someone who can make, a lot of Money, Money, Money , Money , Money.

Major banks and Financial firms are increasingly carrying out drug testing their employees in a bid to cut out abuse in city workers. A study my the Rowntree foundation found anecdotal evidence for an increase of Drug testing in some high profile firms. Particularity in the Financial Sector where there are no obvious health or safety justifications.

I ain’t seen a vicar’s daughter of that skunk mate ! Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk

I’d rather be benny’d up that off with Bob Hope !

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more, more ,more, more.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

A lot of Money.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

Someone who can make a lot of Money.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

A lot of Money, Money, Money.

On an average of 1,500 staff randomly checked for Drugs, 41 were found to be users of cocaine, 124 synthetic drugs and 28 for cannabis and unclassified narcotics. People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behavior because they don’t want to lose a key employee. Someone who can make a lot of Money.

A lot of Money.

STORYBOARD:
The Album follows the journey of refugees out of war torn Syria into the border region camps and finally passing into Iran before resettlement as part of the refugee relief program. Based on and around real story’s and events the Album aims to raise awareness largely ignored and taboo subject of the plight of Refugees. While all Media focuses on the Political Religious Sectarian disputes in the conflict Message in the Sand focuses on the flight, traffic and journey of the victims of war, the people. both in the War Zone through to the Camps, and finally to the current Journey’s end, (re-housed overseas)

The story of the victims of War is a constant global issue. The album could have been focused on any number of conflicts, Chechnya or Yugoslavia, or Rwanda and many many other places. It has happened in history time and time again,. Syria is currently the battleground of warlords and power seekers and there story commands the Media. It is for this reason that the Story centers on Syria’s refugees, the silenced ones, the discarded, the ignored.

This Album is not an attempt to judge, take sides, claim right and wrong, be Political in anyway.

The unfortunate truth for the Refugee is that often there is as much danger in fleeing a war as in being a victim of the conflict on the field. Music is the universal language that all people speak and it is this hope that the message in the sand will be carried forward to all.

03 War is not the Answer الحرب ليست هي الحل

War Chatter

War is not the solution, solution, solution, solution,

There was a gas attack, a Chemical Attack in Syria, and a lot of people were, injured, and, and, and hurt,

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

So the UN had a team to investigate who did this Gas attack, this Chemical attack. The first time the team were shot, shot shot shot, shot. So we had to wait then they sent another team to investigate the situation.

The tension is already so so high.

The tension is already so so high.

It’s a very dangerous situation that we are in. What do people want ? What do people of all Countries want ? Security. They want their survival taken care of. That’s what we want. We don’t want to fight each other.

This is all about Governments against Governments.

Most people could very easily live together when they have everything taken care of. About when we have a house when we have enough food, when we have enough water, when we have a stable income.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit. The Solution is not in Bombs, in missiles, the solution is to create a permanent world where everyone can live a good life, and only when we do that and stop this exploitative economy that makes poverty, and , and what do you call it, friction worldwide.

We’re not going to end any wars or any friction if we have these power games, if we have these money games, if we have this system of inequality that creates poverty, and creates people to see each other as threats, and, creates propaganda , false ideas, and about people, about groups of people and push people up against each other.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

that creates propaganda , false ideas, and about people, about groups of people and push people up against each other, or believing that we have to be a certain way just to be good , but war is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

War is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

War is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

not, not. the solution not. not the solution, not. not. the solution……

Refugee Press Story:

معاون دبیر اول وزارت امور خارجه جمهوری اسلامی ایران، حسین امیر عبدالاهیان در انتشار بیانیهای اعلام فرمودند؛ که مرزهای با شکوه جمهوری اسلامی ایران برای کمک به دهها هزار پناهنده سوریه که در حال حاضر در ازدهام فراوان در کمپهای اردون هاشمی زندگی میکنند، باز میشود تا زمانیکه امکاناتلازم برای برگشت انها به مملکتشان فراهم شود.

The deputy secretary of the foreign ministry published his manifesto announcing that the borders of the Glorious Islamic Republic of Iran will open to receive ten thousand Syrian refugees currently lodged in a number of neighboring countries refugee camps. Housing will be provided until a relocation agreement can be brokered with other nations.

سازمان ملل متحد، پیش بینی مکند که اگر اغتشاشات سوریه به پایان نرسد تعداد پناهندگان به بیش از یکملیون و یکصد هزار نفر خواهد رسید.

The United Nations have warned that if a solution to the Refugee crisis is not found, we could be looking at excess of 100,000 transitory people.

Lyrics Translation from Syrian Dialect to Contemporary Arabic

قد اخذوهم , اثنتان ,لا بل ثلاثة فتيات.عندما اعادوهم قد كُنًّ محبطات .تكلمنًّ عن الانتحار.ان ذلك يحصل دائماً.نحن في خطر .بعض الفتيات قد اجبروا على العمل في الدعارة .نحن في خطر.

Survivors are very reluctant to report rape due to extreme and restrictive cultural values and stigma. Survivors are very unlikely to seek support due to the risk of being killed by their families, shame and fear of facing a continued cycle of physical and sexual violence including honor killing, survival sex, increased risk of early and coerced marriage, domestic violence and risk of suicide are all issues of concern. Fundamentally Women do not have safe access to reliable services and support.

Persian (Farsi)

جسد ۳دختر جوانی که به منطقه امنی در ایران فرستاده شده بودند، یک روز بعد از رسیدنشان در حالی که خود را حلق اویز کرده بودند، در جنوب ساختمانهایی که به انها مکان داده شده بود پیدا کردند.
احتمال میرود که این ۳نفر تحمل شرمساری تجاوزی که به انها شده بود نداشتند و دست به خودکشی زدند.

(Unable to bear the humiliation and social stigma attached to rape, 3 refugee girls who had transferred from camps in neighboring countries to safe facilities in Iran were found hanged south of the housing blocks the morning after arrival. An open verdict of suicide in all three cases has been recorded.)

Rape is becoming increasing widespread throughout the Syria fallout conflict zone. One new study reports that rape has become so prevalent that it is a factor in driving thousands of Syrian families into exile.

Syrian Dialect Arabic

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

. صَارُو يْفَكْرُو بِلْ

(They talked about committing suicide)

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

A Flower in the Desert,
Hanging from the Tree
Blood Red ,. Shifts still uncomfortably

A Flower in Desert,
Plucked from Life,
Twitching still on failing sunset breeze

A Flower in the Desert
Body Broken, Stripped in rage
Neck wrenched painted red in unnatural Shame

A Flower in the Desert
Eyes plucked clean,
Worn on Crow’s Claws , ornaments and rings

A Flower in the Desert
Condemning still
Unlawfully desecrated, Bartered for a meal

A Flower in the Desert
Vain curses voiced
violation, rape betrayal of youthful joy

A Flower in the Desert
Bodily forget,
Seek Peace in Death
Feeding the dust in tainted regret

A Flower in the Desert
Guilt for silver changing hands
Death cheats the deal the never has

A Flower in the Desert
Mournful Release
Violent Violate bodily disbelief

Heed not the breathless whispers
Nor voices do the dead dispose
Heinous acts against innocents
Crimes never to be disclosed

Frenzied, Hateful unfathomable desires
Claim and Consume the fruit of youth
Nothing left but the rotting knot
Upon the asphyxiating rope of truth

These are the victims of war
Forever lost, the brightest lights
These are the Victims of war
Mankind chose a Dominion of Violence

09 Contemptuous Eulogy مديح للازدراء

Persian (Farsi)

رئیس جمهوری ایران حسن روحانی اعلام کردند که؛
جمهوری اسلامی کمکهای انسانی خود را به سوریه ادامه میدهد.

(In July, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined that the Islamic Republic of Iran would continue dispatch aid to Syria)

رئیس جمهور اقای روحانی فرمودند؛
در شرایط سختی که در مردم سوریه در حال حاضر بسر میبرند، دولت ایران کمکهای انسانی و همکاری خود را به انها ادامه میدهد، در حای که مخالف اغتشاشات در مناطق اشغال شده در سوریه است.

(President Rouhani was reported to have confirmed that due to the difficult living conditions of the Syrian People, the Iranian Government will continue distribution of humanitarian aid to Syria, though remains steadfast in condemnation of hostile acts in the region , specially related to Syria.)

Iran has staunchly backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with Military and Financial aid since an anti-regime uprising first began in March 2011 and regards the Syrian opposition groups as terrorists being backed by Western and Arab countries and as a result the main driver behind the refugee crisis is Syria.

(President Rouhani was reported to have confirmed that due to the difficult living conditions of the Syrian People, the Iranian Government will continue the distribution of humanitarian aid to Syria, though remains steadfast in condemnation of hostile acts in the region , specially related to Syria.)

Iran’s deputy foreign minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian was reported to have warned strongly against any foreign interference to impose change in Syria.

دولت ایران بارها همکاری خود را برای برقراری صلح در سوریه و باز کردن راه برای مزاکرات بین دولت و مخالفان دولت و بر قراری دولتی مستقل و ایجاد ارامش در خاور میانه اعلام فرمودند.
دولت ایران نمایندگان دولت سوریه و مخالفان این دولت را برای مذاکره و پیدا کردن راهی برای خاتمه جنگ و بر قراری صلح در این منطقه به ایران دعوت شدند،
که این کنفرانس در اواسط نوامبر با شعار جنگ نه، ازادی بله، اغاز شد.

(Iranian officials have underlined that Tehran is in favor of co-operation and negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups to create stability in the Middle East. representatives of the Government of Syria and opponents of the government were invited to Iran to negotiate and find a way to end war and establish peace in the region.The National Dialogue conference kicked off work in Tehran mid-November with the motto “No to violence, Yes to Democracy”.)

Iran has stepped up support on the ground for President Bashar al-Assad, providing elite teams to gather intelligence and train troops, US reporting sources advised today. This further backing from Tehran, along with deliveries of munitions and equipment form Moscow is helping to keep Assad in power at a time when neither his own forces nor opposition fighters have a decisive edge on the battlefield.

While the presence of Iranian Military personnel in Syria is not new, US military experts believe Tehran has in recent months sent in more specialists to enable Assad to outlast his enemies at home and abroad.

A former senior Iranian official with close IRGC links said Iranian forces were active in the area. These include senior commanders from the elite Qud’s force, the external and secretive arm of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as well as IRGC members.

The evidence indicated hundreds of Iranian advisers and trainers were in side Syrian at any one time. These figures could not be verified from Syria but the deaths of at least two IRGC commanders in Syria have been reported publicly.

رئیس جمهور ایران حسن روحانی اعلام کردند ؛
که کمکهای انسانی خود را به سوریه ادامه خواهد داد، ایشان فرمودند که برای کمک به مردم سوریه که اکنون در شرایط سختی بسر میبرند، ادامه میدهد.

The Iranian Deputy foreign minister called for an end to the violence in Syria, where he was reported to have said a national dialogue was needed to pave the way forward for a comprehensive Government. Humanitarian aid to Syria will continue to help reduce adversity for the Syrian people.

سازمان حقوق بشر، برای اسکان پناهندگان در خارج از مناطق اشغال شده به ۱۷ کشور که فرانسه و المان هم جزو انها میباشد، برنامه جدیدی را اغاز کرد.

The UNHCR were today reported to have launched a Refugee relocation program to 17 Countries outside of the affected area including France and Germany.

Cela fait trois mois qu’ils sont arrivés en France. Pour la plupart, la violence et les combats ont détruit leurs villes et villages et les ont force à quitter leur pays. Depuis ils ont successivement traversé la Jordanie, l’Iraq, l’Iran et suite a un programme de relogement a l’étranger ils sont finalement arrivé à Paris; un total de 126 familles.

(They arrived in France 3 months ago. For most of them war and violence have destroyed their homes and lives and forced them to flee there homeland. For 126 families, since leaving home they have had to cross Jordan, Iraq and into Iran and finally thanks to an overseas rehousing program, they have arrived in Paris.)

Il se retrouve chaque jour dans le parc de Saint Ouen. Depuis trois mois leur nombre ne fait qu’augmenter. Dans le parc on découvre des gens affamés, épuisés et malades, on voit des enfants en bas age et des femmes enceinte.

(Everyday they gather in the Saint Ouen Park where we find them suffering from starvation, dishevelment, neglect, illness among theer number there are young children and pregnant women. month on month the numbers just keep increasing.)

La plupart de ces refugiés ont déjà déposés des demandes d’asile mais la question du logement pose problème. A proximité du parc, l’hôtel accueil quelques familles, mais les solutions manque. Chaque jour, pour les associations bénévoles c’est la course Contre la montre pour s’assurer que personne ne dorment dehors, mais la situation est de plus en plus difficile a gérer. Face à cette situation d’urgence, les mobilisations grandissent et les associations appellent l’état à réquisitionner un lieu d’accueille pour héberger ces familles.

(Most of the Refugees are seeking asylum status, but housing remains an issue. Some families have been put up in a small hotel on the outskirts of the park but solutions for all are hard to come by. Charity’s run vigil to try and ensure no one gets left sleeping rough and support for action grows. Charities are calling on the State to become involved and provided a solution to the housing crisis.)

CITY SLICKERS – DUBSTEP Remix

Dubstep Remix of CITY SLICKERS due for release on www.fishinaboxrecords.com on November 5th

PREVIEW LINK :

CITY SLICKERS focuses on the Gross misconduct of City Financial Sector Traders and Decision Makers and there scant disregard to corporate responsibility specifically with regard to social irresponsibility and drug and amphetamine use throughout the London City Square mile.

Lyrics:

People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behavior because they don’t want to lose a key employee. Someone who can make a lot of Money.

A lot of Money

A lot of Money

I ain’t seen a vicar’s daughter of that skunk mate !

Someone who can make, a lot of Money, Money, Money , Money , Money.

Major banks and Financial firms are increasingly carrying out drug testing their employees in a bid to cut out abuse in city workers. A study my the Rowntree foundation found anecdotal evidence for an increase of Drug testing in some high profile firms. Particularity in the Financial Sector where there are no obvious health or safety justifications.

I ain’t seen a vicar’s daughter of that skunk mate ! Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk Skunk

I’d rather be benny’d up that off with Bob Hope !

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more, more ,more, more.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

A lot of Money.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

Someone who can make a lot of Money.

Two fuckin Henry’s make a Rory my son, no less no more.

A lot of Money, Money, Money.

On an average of 1,500 staff randomly checked for Drugs, 41 were found to be users of cocaine, 124 synthetic drugs and 28 for cannabis and unclassified narcotics. People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behavior because they don’t want to lose a key employee. Someone who can make a lot of Money.

A lot of Money.

SONG LYRICS: HOME

回家 Home Calling

身在异乡,打开对家的记忆, 记得 Away from home, in a stranger’s land, I open up memories of home, and remember:

那扇窗 that sky through the window,

那道门 that voice behind the door,

那盘花 that scent of bouquet,

那株草 that softness of the lawn,

那本书 the notes in that book,

那壶茶 the warmth of that cup of tea,

那缕线 the longing of the thread,

那根针 the touch of the needle,

那杯酒 the richness of the wine,

那道菜 the memories of mum’s cooking.

听到熟悉的声音,看到熟悉的身影。 The sound of familiar voice, the sight of loving smiles.

那里有许多笑声也有几多烦恼!那里一….家….同…..心! With both laughter and sorrow, with hearts mingled as one.

家….是一个温暖,有安全感的地方,你可以卸下重担,做回自己。 Home, where warmth linger, where safety is found, where burdens are shed, and your true self is bare.

家里有一盏灯在夜里为你开着,照亮你回家的路途。 There a lamp that will always be lit, to guide your way back home.

家,就是可以让你自由接受爱和给予爱的地方! Home, where love is freely given, and abundantly received.

无论我们走到哪里,身在何方,我们的家和家人都在我们心中! No matter where we go, or where we are, heart is where our family shall always dwell, where we call home.

其实任何一个有爱的地方,都有家的痕迹,所以有人四海为家。 Where there is love, there are the traces of home, Thus one makes home, wherever one maybe.

回家, 就是….回到一个….你能感受到爱和被理解的地方,一个完全接纳你的地方。 To come home, is to come back to a place where you will be loved, understood, and totally accepted.

我….走在回家的路上了!你呢? I… am on my way home. Where are you?
