Streaming of Burnt Cross side of split 7" 'Anathema'

Two of the UK’s best political punk bands unite for a three track split 7” doing what punk rock should always do, highlight what is going on in this world. There is no point saying that you don’t care about politics, this stuff affects you even if your only concern is the price of your next beer and hair gel. Anthrax offer “The Beg Society”, and if you liked their brilliant last album, then you will like this, it’s a glorious, driving punker pouring scorn on Cameron’s Big Society; “we’re all in this together”? Yeah right! Burnt Cross power through their two songs, with “Anathema (Wings Of Fear)”, having more great vocals from Maureen Bourne, spitting venom at the war machine’s rampage of indiscriminate murder and carnage. “The Inner Revolutionist” points out that change starts from within, and we can all play our part. I love these three songs, and I love the co-operation that made this possible; two great bands and 14 labels combining to make sure these ideas and this music is heard.

Track Name: Burnt Cross - Anathema (Wings Of Fear)
Don’t invest in companies that propagate the war machine
Don’t comply to your country that murders indiscriminately
The bodies hit by missiles have no prayer to liberate them
Cos the devil thus defiles, desecrates the inner sanctum
Dragged like animals along abattoir floors
As our future is devolved in a vision of eternal war
Where man sets in place an apocalyptic future
In their interests, they've got cops ready to shoot ya

Wings of fear unfold - a witness to its own ruin
A species self implodes - a virus infecting the womb

Dealing in dictatorships, the dirty tricks of hypocrites
Whilst pillars of humanity are crumbling brick by brick
The ash has been scattered and the embers search landfall
On once hallowed ground - cursed, bloody and brutal
Hands suffocate us slow, cradles the atomic dawn
Poison on wind that blows, settles on an earth forlorn
Peace lies in vain when aggression dominates
And the power only laid in the house man creates

Wings of fear unfold - a witness to its own ruin
A species self implodes - a virus infecting the wombs

Its a cautionary tale - of a world that we never made
The ultimate betrayal - subjects subjected to hate
Track Name: Burnt Cross - The Inner Revolutionist
The rich remain divine in the kingdom of the blind
And the faithful stay obedient, giving credence to bloodlines
Relics in shrines
Puppets led by masters who control by exploitation
Creates disaster to deceive a grovelling nation
Justify their crimes
Debts are made that you cant pay and don't they fucking know it
With one foot standing in the grave and the other covered in their shit
Its time to admit

Retribution can be clouded by our rage
If your feeling disillusioned there's another way to make the change
Learning to exist without the mind set of a slave
The inner revolutionist - disengage

Subservient society that begs for guidance on its knees
Privilege and piety are held up by a hierarchy
Of liars and thieves
There's a way that we can win, evolve the anarchist within
Don't be scared to make the change, the power lies within your skin
Commit to begin
Retribution can be clouded by our rage
If your feeling disillusioned there's another way to make the change
Learning to exist without the mind set of a slave
The inner revolutionist
