about

Oh where to begin. The Shizit, my band previous to Rabbit Junk, had gone down in flames after a tumultuous UK tour in 2001 with Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot fame. The Shizit was essentially an attempt to merge the lo-fi metal sound of Slipknot with the even more lo-fi sound of Digital Hardcore Recordings. The project seemed to go far, very fast - within about 18 months we had come to dominate the mp3.com charts and were getting attention from major labels, many of whom were trying to figure out what to do with these emerging "internet famous" bands biting at their heels. But in the end, tension between me and my band-mate, Brian, got the best of the project. Almost immediately after The Shizit split, I started working on what would become "Rabbit Junk". I had become a bit tired of the super macho, super angry sound of The Shizit and I wanted to incorporate the quirky-poppy influence of Mad Capsule Markets along with punky female vocals. Sum Grrrl and I had been married for about a year and a half at this point (we were YOUNG!) and we moved from Seattle to LA briefly, where I recorded most of the record in a sweat-box in North Hollywood. I really wanted fem vox but didn't know any fem vocalists, so I literally dragged Sum Grrrl into my little make-shift studio and told her to yell. I thought she sounded just right! I had been using Pro Tools for about a year and had no idea what I was doing. The sound I was getting was pretty muddy, fuzzy, and boomy, but considering my background in digital hardcore it sounded acceptable. What became the debut album was originally intended just to be a demo. I printed up 500 copies and sold them on rabbitjunk.com - they were gone in months. This is about when people started emailing asking if "I was the guy from The Shizit". Michael Dome at Metal Hammer Magazine generously gave the album a 9/10 and I figured things would move along about as fast as they had with The Shizit. But by this time, mp3.com had folded and the labels were in disarray as new predators like iTunes swaggered onto the savanna. This was the start of a long, hard (did I mention HARD) road.

Track Name: Orange Laces
All the worries
All the people sayin' whoa whoa
I'm ready to go
And all the people in the back of my mind
Whoa whoa
Fuck you, I survived, whoa whoa
Fuck you, I survived

Fuck you, Seattle
Fuck you, Los Angeles, and all of your pretentiousness
Capitalism, say fuck this prison
I'll make it my mission
To teach these evil bitches a lesson
Fuck you, Broadway, you're the worst of it all
Fizags and gutter punks gone exclusive
The height of fashion
Delusional
Coffee
Heroin
Cannabis
Fascism

I survived and I bare these scars with pride
Against the world with so few on my side
I dedicate this song to all that don't belong
And ask you to stand tall
And scream, "Fuck them all"

Fuck my high school celebration of the fool
Mediocrity was the rule
Fuck cool, telling me to move on
Do I look rich and blond
This culture don't respond
I'm the odd man out and why the same old rule applies
Think differently and die
You must live the lie
Testify
Help deny
You gotta reach for the fucking sky
But I fucking survived
Track Name: Plastical
Such pretty packaging
We're all in the front row salivating
To watch the legless fucking
Palms sweaty on the floor
Push
Push

I can't see myself
There's no reflection
Don't know my name
Who is this person?

Well, depart, take a little bit of this
Don't feel selfish
You know you want it take it all
You can't resist
We're part of the illusion now
We're just part of the illusion now

No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe
No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe

This is, this is
The world of shock and
This is, this is
The world of shock and awe

This is not my face
This isn't real
I'm just dreaming
This can't be the way I feel

Well, depart take a little bit of this
Don't feel selfish
You know you want it, take it all
We can't resist
We're part of the illusion now
We're just part of the illusion now

No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe
No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe

This is, this is
The world of shock and
This is, this is
The world of shock and awe
Shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and
Shock and awe

This is not real
This is not real
I just can't wake up
I just gotta wake up

No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe
No tear will drop at the empire's fall
It's a dead man's party after all
Reality is just a broken law
This is the world of shock and awe

This is, this is
The world of shock and
This is, this is
The world of shock and awe
This is the world of shock
And this is the world of shock and awe
Shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and, shock and
Shock and awe
Track Name: Not Owned
There ain't nothing on this mother
They think we don't own it
They try so hard to make us forget, get
They think we don't own it
They try so hard to make us forget, get
So sick of it
Mother fucker
I saw a sign outside, no god damn free ride
What if I took you down tonight?
Would you put up a fight?
It's time we let you go
All the numbers have to show
That we stayin' in control
Don't you fuck up the show
They think we don't own it
They try so hard to make us forget
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go, go
They think
I looked down in my hand
And I saw a key
Buried under apathy
They gonna try and bury me
I stood with no voice
Being confused about my choice
Then I thought I'd had enough
It's time to fuck 'em up
They think we don't own it
They try so hard to make us forget
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go, go
They think
Mother fucker
Ther-ther-ther-there ain't, ain't noth-
Ther-ther-ther-there, mother fucker
Ther-ther-ther-there ain't nothing on
Ther-ther-ther-there, mother fucker
They think we don't own it
They try so hard to make us forget
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go, go
They think
Track Name: Washout
I didn't go out today
I won't go out tomorrow
I'll just sit at home
And wallow in my sorrow
Have you got some hope I can borrow?
I used to think so big
I used to talk so bold
Am I giving up, am I getting old?
How'd I get so low?
No, I think life owes me more
And I'm going to
Pick myself up off the floor
'Cause I want the fucking glory

Wash out, go wash out
I'm feeling, I'm feeling like a motherfucking failure

I wanna know how everyone survives
The day-jobs and debts
Not enough for rent and wounded sex
What the fuck is next?
So hard to accept
How do I get by?
I've been bought and sold
Seen hot and cold
Been bored and ignored
Seen no reward for ten years of my youth
And the long line of bastards
Waiting to see me pack it in
Now I know I'll never win
Crawling under my skin
Just amplify in my fuzzy fucked-up mind
Track Name: I Vote Bolshevik Lite
I will bring you the truth
It's 1917 all over again
About a bloody revolution that's about to begin
I got my torch and pitchfork
Got the day off work
And I'm joining with the rabble
'Cause today I'm down to battle

I won't play your games
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I don't fear the state
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I think you're to blame
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I will clean the state
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right

It's OK, it's like a game
Choose a target, let's get started
It's OK, they're all the same
Relax
Pull the trigger
I will bring you the truth
It's amazing to me what I see them flaunting
These multi-million dollar mother fuckers of the TV
Flaunting their privilege like they earned it
Don't believe it, it's all bullshit
They're just parasites that I'm down to fight
Let's go

I can't hear your shit
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I hate both sides
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I will cross the line
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right
I be there to fight
I vote Bolshevik Lite
All right

It's OK, like a game
Choose a target, let's get started
It's OK, they're all the same
Relax your finger, pull the trigger
Track Name: Punk455
Life ain't nothin' but bitches and money

It's all good, yeah
You punkass motherfucker
Some people run, I'd rather
Fight 'til the day I die
You know they're gonna find us
One way or another
So let's give it up, jump
And we'll learn to fly

I wanna hear you say! (Hey!)

I wanna hear you say (Hey, hey!)
What does it all mean to me?
Nothing!

It's alright!
Run, don't wait to see them come
They're coming to throw down
To break you off some
It's all right
Let's go, we got no pride to show
Outnumbered three to one
What the fuck you waiting for?

Life ain't nothin' but bitches and money (Hey!)

I'm feeling good
Yeah, you punkass motherfucker
Some people talk like
It's in the ground rotting away
Just goes to show you should
Never even bother
To let someone else
Put you out of harm's way

What does it all mean to me?

It's alright!
Run, don't wait to see them come
They're coming to throw down
To break you off some
It's all right
Let's go, we got no pride to show
Outnumbered three to one
What the fuck you waiting for?
Come on, that's right! I'm feeling disowned!

So this is it then, my brother-betrayer
Fuck you very much I guess
I'll see you on the other side
'Til then, you'll be the one
Looking over your shoulder
As long as I run you better go fucking hide!

I wanna hear you say! (Hey!)

I wanna hear you say (Hey, hey)
What does it all mean to me?
Nothing!

It's all right
Run, don't wait to see them come
They're coming to throw down
To break you off some
It's all right
Let's go, we got no pride to show
Outnumbered three to one
What the fuck you waiting for?

Life ain't nothin' but...
Life ain't nothin' but bitches and money
Life ain't...

Track Name: Inside My House
It's a cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
I remember the boy I used to be
Taking life on so innocently
It's a cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
It's of little relief that others hold your belief
With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief

Everything inside my house is broke
The stove don't work, my window is cracked, it's all fucked up
A hall of broken mirrors, path of broken glass
Everything inside my house is black

It's a cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
I remember the boy I used to be
Taking life on so innocently
It's cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
It's of little relief that others hold your belief
With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief

Everything inside my house sweats all night
I wake up every morning And taste the salt
Sunlight streaming in through the nicotine
I bathe in the smoke of the unseen

It's a cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
I remember the boy I used to be
Taking life on so innocently
It's cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
It's of little relief that others hold your belief
With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief

It's a cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
I remember the boy I used to be
Taking life on so innocently
It's cold hard fact
That life moves so fast
Without taking another breath
You get stuck in the past
It's of little relief that others hold your belief
With so much standing against us all, you've got to be the thief
Track Name: ISO vs Life
I feel no sympathy
It's easy
Leave it alone, let it be
All activity must be stop
All the doors must be locked
Don't make sound or we all be fucked
I hear it lurking outside
It's a monster what?
This should be no surprise
It's the other half of your life
Scary as hell
Thank god I got my wife
She's a soldier at your side
That none can divide
But in the end you'll have to face a very different kind

Solitude no "we"
This cut don't bleed
So leave it alone, let it be
Break it upon the rocks of your needs
A sinking island, it doesn't want to find them
No friend, no foe, no loose ends to mend
In isolation
There's no tempation
To break from familiarity of feeling like a rarity
A lock with no key
This falling twig is finally been set free

So what's the disparity
What's the problem?
You don't need no one
You need nothing from
Laughing and smiles
No one for miles
I am a rock
Fuck the flock
They're just outlines in chalk (yeah)
Manikins that talk (yeah)
Fists that knock (yeah)
Bullshit that walks
I float above it alone in my grace
The ants disappear without no fuckin' trace

What the fuck is this chain in my chest
Dug into my gut it's tugged by the rest
I can't be dependant, I can't be a mess
I must remain solid in the face of this duress
Its tug of war
Killing my very core
A conflict of property, no more, no more
I'll break the chain
I'll cut myself off
No one can touch me in my isolation

You don't speak of the love, you don't speak of rewards
You don't speak of rewards, you don't speak of the cost
I am an altogether different being
I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing
In the past I've seen my enemies go a fleeing
Now I avoid the whole thing
No friend to whom I'm clinging
Some say it's not a way to be living
That you should spend your life giving and giving
So I flipped the switch
Ain't nobody's bitch
My wounds I self stitch
I ignore the itch
To socialize
To realize
To see through other peoples eyes
I'm deaf to my own cries
But I'm deaf to the lies
You can't deny
With no friends you don't cry
I'll be this way till I die or learn to scry
I am an altogether different being
I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing

I can't fucking breath
I'm suffocating
It's isolation
What the fuck am I hiding from?

I'm suffocating
It's isolation
What the fuck am I hiding from?
Track Name: You Deserve to Die (2008 Hidden Track)
[Intro]
Welcome to the hidden track!
You know, I got a lot of complaints about some of the foul language I used on this album, and I, I wanted to make a song that you could share with your whole family. Cause by jove, sharing with our family is one of the most important things we can do as a ?

[Verse 1]
Every single time I look at your bloated body
Rotting in my basement I'm glad
Glad that I killed you
I'm Glad
And every single time I look at the scars on my hands
From when you tried to defend yourself
I feel happy
Inside

[Chorus]
Because you deserve to die
Because you deserve to die
Because you deserve to die
Because you deserve to die

[Verse 2]
Your mutilated genitalia hanging from my ceiling
It gives me a funny feeling
I feel happy
Inside
And every single time I look at your crusty eyeballs
Sitting on my bedside table
I feel happy
Inside

[Chorus]
Because you deserve to die
Because you deserve to die
Because you, were such a motherfucker!
Because you deserve to die
