about

Government's debut EP, "Hard Truth/Forced Unity", is a relentless attack of dynamic riffage, purposeful drumming, thunderous bass, and in-your-face, yet soulful, to-the-point vocals. The honest and confrontational lyrics are clearly heard and stay true to the album's title.

Track Name: Divided
Everywhere we look, everything we're led to believe.
They're teaching us to hate each other.
We can't do this anymore.

Who's not pissed to be a part of this history?
Don't be ashamed, the labor always gets the blame.
Fed these lies to prevent a rise within.
We don't even believe in equality.

We can't do this anymore.
Is there nothing we would fight for?
We can't do this anymore.
Is there nothing left to fight for?

No time for peace and quiet, we need a riot.
So sad to see, we are divided by tragedy.
Never let a crisis go to waste, make it all about race.
Spreading nothing but hate, what a fucking disgrace.

We can't do this anymore.
Is there nothing we would fight for?
We can't do this anymore.
Is there nothing left to fight for?

What the fuck.

We can't stand to listen to the propaganda mission (x3)
We can't stand to listen to the propaganda anymore.
Can't stand to listen to the propaganda anymore.
Track Name: Scienomics
Alright! Yeah!

You got a faith in science that only goes so deep.
Afraid to rise above, the climb is very steep.
You drag me down, we're not here for that long.
And when we're dead and gone the search will go on.

What are you trying to prove?
Whose ego are you feeding?
And now you can make all the rules.
But people are still dying.

You want to know it all, man it's nothing new.
We been here for years and don't have the truth.
You justify your ways with the "facts" you find.
Closing down your mind, everything is divine.

What are you trying to prove?
Whose ego are you feeding?
And now you can make all the rules.
But people are still dying.

You say you got a plan but suddenly....
You say full steam ahead, that's not what I see.
So long for the right and the wrong.
A line it has been drawn.
With nothing left to do we're coming for you!

What are you trying to prove?
Whose ego are you feeding?
And now you can make all the rules.
But people are still dying. (x2)
Track Name: CMXIX
Nobody is perfect believe me it's true.
I never said I was better than you.
I'm always finding myself in the wrong,
On a crooked path all along.
Owning the consequence of my deeds.
I really ain't afraid of a little pain.
I cowboy up and get to work,
While you're acting like a God damn jerk!

So don't make me these promises, you don't know what I hear!
And now I'm facing some blame, how can I know what's right?
ALL I WANT TO DO IS FIGHT!
It's coming like a hurricane. (x3)

I took that walk in your shoes alright.
Stepped into the house and we fucked all night.
How could you lie about those things?
And the drama that you bring.
Drag it out to the bitter end.
It won't be the same for you again.
I've taken all I can bear.
So quit acting like you fucking care.

So don't make me these promises, you don't know what I hear!
And now I'm facing some blame, how can I know what's right?
ALL I WANT TO DO IS FIGHT!
It's coming like a hurricane. (x3)

Now I'm facing some blame!
Coming in like a hurricane! (x2)
Track Name: #doubtit
We can't avoid this, standing beside the choices.
Taking me back to a place I was before.
Always a tangent, wasting precious moments.
Chasing dreams that are different every night.

Am I being misled?
Thinking here hurts my head.
Can I go back to bed?
Am I already dead?
Why are you asking me?
Can you please let me be?
Find me something to do and I'll spread it to you.

I can't solve the problem, no hope for the next one.
I lost myself, I'm still homesick every night.
Can't fix the instinct, I can't change what I think.
Facing fears in these nightmares every night.

Am I being misled?
Thinking here hurts my head.
Can I go back to bed?
Am I already dead?
Why are you asking me?
Can you please let me be?
Find me something to do and I'll spread it to you.

Chasing dreams that are different every night.
Facing fears in these nightmares every night. (x2)
Track Name: No Time For Games
These obnoxious flying objects, roam autonomous with no pilots.
Being conscious to the losses is a problem a conscience causes.
This is no time for games.
Man it's bad it's total madness, noncombatants in their caskets.

Watch out overhead incoming here comes a surprise, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Innocent civilian children, they muffle the cries, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Glorification, the nation keeps closing their eyes, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Feeding and eating, they got you believing the lies, WE DON'T WANT NONE!

Fact is that this program is active, drones to track his whole damn blacklist.
Oh these fascists, police tactics. Be an activist, we can't have this.
This is no time for games.
Man it's bad it's total madness, noncombatants in their caskets.

Watch out overhead incoming here comes a surprise, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Innocent civilian children, they muffle the cries, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Glorification, the nation keeps closing their eyes, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Feeding and eating, they got you believing the lies, WE DON'T WANT NONE!

Maybe you're left wing, maybe you're right wing.
Maybe it's your thing, it ain't my thing!
Maybe you're left wing, maybe you're right wing.
Maybe it's your thing, it ain't my thing!
This is no time for games.
This is no time for games.

Watch out overhead incoming here comes a surprise, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Innocent civilian children, they muffle the cries, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Glorification, the nation keeps closing their eyes, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Feeding and eating, they got you believing the lies, WE DON'T WANT NONE!
Track Name: Territorial Grounds
I can promise you it's not that easy waking up every fucking day
At the mercy of time and chance, just a matter of skill and will.
I try to believe we got a meaning, some kind of destiny to fulfill.
We got to realize a few things.
Time is never standing still. (x2)

You try to want it but you got to need it.
I tried to want it but I learned to need it.

Another hand out looking for a handout in a world made safe for the weak.
You're taking the sport away, punish anyone trying to survive.
Who's lending the hand that's here to help you, paralyzing all of our hearts and minds.
We're not owed a god damn thing.
There's no trophy here this time. (x2)

You try to want it but you got to need it.
I tried to want it but I learned to need it.

Laying down a sacrifice, my own life.
I find myself needing to do just what I'm told.

You try to want it but you got to need it.
I tried to want it but I learned to need it. (x3)
