Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Feudalism never died We’re still ruled by lords Peasants and serfs Needing food and board With prices rising Faster than wages We’re still toiling the land And living in cages Pressured into jobs And taking the offers Accepting paltry pay Just to fill the coffers Casual work placements With sod-all rights Who needs to sleep When you can also work nights Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Vampire job agencies Taking a bite From public sector companies The maths ain’t right The government Let off their corporate chums You pay the tax But no one checks their sums They sip from fine glassware We slurp from the trough Before you can blink They’ll have you signed off And place you on A workfare programme To subsidise Tesco It’s a fucking scam! Zero hour contracts And minimum wage For minimum living Don’t you feel the rage? I wanna be the best I can be I’m gonna make the boss so happy I’m gonna get Employee of the Week I wanna make the sales figures peak! Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Nooses are for the nearly dead Wear a suit and tie Choke the dreams in your head While someone gets to Benefit from your pain Account offshore And a villa in Spain Give up your life So they can have theirs They’d pay you less if they could They have no cares And if you don’t comply There’s another way Incarcerate you For a nice prison stay Making goods for the shops While you do your time It begs the question Who commits the real crime?! Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Don't get ideas Above your station Work harder fucker Work harder fucker Work harder fucker Work harder fucker Keep your head down And don’t look up! Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Work harder fucker This is your subjugation Don't get ideas Above your station Work harder fucker Work harder fucker Work harder fucker Work harder fucker

They say that children are the future… We say there is no future for your children… If you only care about little Timmy Why do you think it’s gonna get better? The system is fucked and you are complicit We need to take steps to reduce the numbers! Your kid’s not special Your kid’s not cute They’re a drain on the planet And that you can’t refute Fuck pro-lifers We’re not pro-choice We’re pro-abortion That’s our voice! The cities are full The future is bleak There’ll be nothing left We’re past the peak We’re all oxygen thieves And carbon emitters Another one born And it just gets shitter It’s not our fault We have to blame the roots The media moguls And corporate suits We’re all part of the problem Need to be the solution Populations out of hand We need absolution! What are you saving all them pennies for? What are you saving for – humans will be no more! Too much waste And not enough resources Your recycling efforts Are not stemming our remorses With mass production There simply are no pros Your eco-nappies take 40 years to decompose Riding a bike That is an improvement But ethical consumers Are a useless movement The future is looking Pretty fucking dire We need to do something Before we expire Yes, we all want to have a nice house Yes, we all want a lovely catchment area Yes, we all want to go organic Yes, we all want to meet up for coffee! Yes, we all want a smooth school run Yes, we all want to pay off the mortgage Yes, we all want a nice world to live in But your kids take up space, so make the decision! Save the world Kill your children Save the world Kill your children Save the world Kill your children Save the world now Save the world now They’re not special And you’re not helping Why not put them out of their misery? They’re not special And you’re not helping And then you might save the planet!

Colossal empires have existed throughout history Who conquered vast swathes of land Replacing ideologies by the sword. Dominating nations and eradicating civilisations But there is one thing One very, very important detail That all of these empires shared… …They all perished in the end! What goes up Must come down Empires all crumble These towers aren’t ivory As I walk through the City But they scrape the sky over me Their hosts know no pity I don’t claim to understand the economy But I think I understand vast inequality I feel powerless, But power is an illusion, a construct Law made flesh, Robots to instruct It could all be brought down With a glitch in the design A spanner in the works Not even they can see the signs What goes up – Must come down Empires all crumble! Empires all crumble! It’s us versus them Challenge their worldview The 1% inner circle Empire of the few They say Rome Wasn’t built in a day That empire fell Without their say Powerful structures Have foundations tremble Fall apart at the seams No more will they resemble It’s mere mortals Who make this their cause Exposed to death and fears Whilst they manifest laws What goes up – Must come down Empires all crumble! Empires all crumble! Empires are never built to last Corruption and greed resign them to the past We can live to see capitalism fail We can live to see a new model prevail One not built on competition Secret police and extradition Wars for oil and media spin It’s our world still, it’s all to win What goes up Must come down What goes up Must come down Empires, empires, empires all crumble Empires, empires, empires all crumble What goes up – Must come down Empires all crumble! Empires all crumble!

Generate long-term sales by reducing time between purchases! They told us we could be Whatever we can dream Buy your way to happiness And join the team But the architects Worked in perfect flaws The blueprint was drawn Every effect has a cause Society fashioned With meticulous precision To ensure our ongoing Subdued positions Designed to fail Just like you Society’s corrupt And built to fail From our own futures To products for sale We’ll end up on the Landfills of tomorrow And want more goods To buy, beg or borrow Playing by the rules Like rats in a maze To help corporations Money must they raise It doesn’t matter If they make it shit We’re still craven enough To fucking buy it …we still fucking buy it… You, are, not, any use to me now You, are, not, any use to me now Designed to fail Just like you Spend disposable cash On disposable crap While we pillage the planet For resources to sap Suicidal workers Slave away, Keep the line rolling Never waste a day We need New! Shiny! Flashy! Things For us westerners The empty joy it brings And when they break We’ll just ship it back To the Global South They can take the flack Out of sight and out of mind Not our problem anymore Mine those metals, melt that plastic Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more! You are not any use to me now You are not any use to me now

about

Killdren Royal Tunbridge Wells, UK

Killdren are a two-bit rave-punk band with a smelly attitude who hail from Tunbridge Wells.

Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety,
Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.
