about

This is the "classic" Rabbit Junk album, from 2006. Re-released here on bandcamp, with permission from Full Effect Records. A relatively amateurish bedroom recording but dripping with unrelenting passion; the lyrics have only become more relevant as years have passed.

This was really Rabbit Junk's "first" album, as the debut released in 2004 was intended as a demo. This record was heavily influenced by Japanese digital hardcore act Mad Capsule Markets and, of course, Atari Teenage Riot but also European metal of the time, such as In Flames and Arch Enemy - both of which itched our metal nostalgia.

The record was initially released 100% independently in a single run of 1000 copies. It was sold directly from rabbitjunk.com and we were surprised at how fast they sold. This is also when we got our first video done, for "In Your Head No One Can Hear You Scream". In support of the record, we put together a full live band, which included Kent Ames on drums and Coleman Thornburg on guitar (long since disbanded at this point - our shows as a two piece work really well and we're never going back). There were some small tours around this time and it wasn't long before we were contacted by record labels. We decided to go with Full Effect Records because they offered the largest advance and we were flat broke. Full Effect had Tom Baker (NIN, Marylin Manson, Rob Zombie) remaster the record and they re-released Reframe in 2008...right in the middle of the "great recession". Full Effect made a series of blunders with the release, including misnaming several tracks (e.g. typos such as misnaming "Millennial Pox" as "Millennial Pow"). This was a transition moment in the music industry; box stores were shutting down and iTunes starting showing its dominance. However, the primary product of the industry, "mp3's", were easily available for free (torrent etc.) and indie bands struggled more than ever. we never saw any money beyond our advance. But Reframe did get some recognition, including reviews in Metal Hammer and Terrorizer magazines. This album is what put us "on the map".

Track Name: Demons
I'm scared to death
Of myself

I can't feel anything
I can't feel anything
I have become the pain
I have become my own demons

I'm tired of being a punk
Yeah, like I ever was
I'm tired of being myself
Yeah, like I ever am

Like a quarter dug out of a homeless man's pocket
Like a finger torn out from the socket
I tried it and I knock it
I'm just mad, 'cause nobody wants to steal my soul

I'm tired of being made up
Yeah, like I ever am
I'm tired of being tied down
Yeah, like I ever was

Turn the radio on
To the techno station
Keep it a few points off, so it sounds all ruff
Then it matches my head
All static with the meters in the red
I'm feeling half dead

Feel the demons rise
Let the mercury rise
I can't close my eyes
Track Name: In Your Head No One Can Hear You Scream
Well, maybe I should just move
Well, maybe I should just use
Anything to kill the memory
Of me and you
It ain't over 'til it's over
That's what she said
I see her walking the streets at night
She'd be better off dead

No one can hear me scream in my head
No one can hear me scream in my head
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
Go!

But it's all right
I don't wanna fight
With myself no more
Because I keep on winning
So I give in
And there you are again
Looking like an angel
Fresh from fucking Satan

No one can hear me scream in my head
No one can hear me scream in my head
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
Go!

You're deaf to the silence
You're deaf to the silence

No one can hear me scream
No one can hear me scream

No one can hear me scream in my head
No one can hear me scream in my head
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
I see it, I see it
I won't let go
Go!

You're deaf to the silence
You're deaf to the silence
Forever!
Forever!
Forever!
Forever!
Track Name: Beating Track
You know that if we go off the beaten track
You know that if we go, we won't be back

To stay or go
A little bitch of a question
A token of my affection
For this little complication
I jingle it like trinket
No need to dwell on it

I just hang it around my neck and forget
No plan, no sweat, I ante up on this bet
Win this battle but lose the war, like Tet
Want what you cannot get

Break out of this net

Don't mind if I do
Because I'm feeling through
With being what you expect
With being predictable - uh oh

I love a taboo
So true
But if you break every rule
You just become another tool
But at least you're the sharpest in the shed 'cause
You're brand fucking new

I saw her face in the street light
And I knew that she had seen my eyes
A puddle of waste floating down on this business
Hagahahahagahahaha present day obsession
I kick straight on to check it
No need to go catch it
So it's now or never no way no how

It just won't fit

I'm in a dilemma
Because I can't remember
I'm supposed to be here today
I'm just a minor character in this play
Track Name: The Big Push
You won't stop
Now over the top
You'll tear your enemies apart
Pray for your soul
But you do your part
This is the big push
No one walks away
No flesh on bones
No blood in veins

This is the big push
We don't take no prisoners
Ein zwei drei vier
This is the big push
We don't take no shite

It was a drunk weasel
Feeling a miracle
Stubby little fingers pulling triggers
Beating back the hordes
It was a walking revenge fantasy
Seeking out the enemy in the trenches
Of its scabby knees

Bubble gum bubble gum in a dish
How many pieces do you wish
Ein zwei drei vier
One more and you'll choke my dear

I bet they didn't think that something so small
Could put an insect in the ink
In which they stood for
I bet they didn't see it coming
It was too fast for their running
Now they're stuck in the mud
Surrounded by bodies

Cinderella ribbon of yella
Went upstairs to see her fella
Made a mistake and kissed a snake
How many soldiers did it take
Track Name: To All Good Night
She won't wait for me to catch up
She's too far away for me to catch her
She's on her way to somewhere better
I'll never find her
I'll never find her again

Goodnight
Well said
Soon I think we'll all be dead
He's in trouble with the natural laws
She's in the effect and he's lost his cause
Conflicted like a dog with hands for paws
He never could have saved her from
Who she was
If he could have only let her go
Maybe she'd wake up tomorrow

I can't wait
For you to catch me
I'm too far away for you to catch up
I'm on my way
To somewhere better
You'll never find me
You'll never find me again

Goodnight
Good call
Soon I think the sky will fall
Will she be there to hold it up
When he comes home from getting fucked up?
I think not
All is lost
He'll die in the frost
A victim of his own high cost
A now she's just a bleeding wounded
Haunting in his bedroom

I want my life back

We can't wait
For you to catch up
We're too far away for you to catch us
We're on our way to somewhere better
You'll never find us
You'll never find us again
Track Name: Crutch
Suck it up, you got no right to be bitching
You've got your youth and your health
But every day that you wake up
You feel like you've got nothing else
You get the feeling that this ladder is endless
That your arms aren't long enough
Chalk it up to a bad day anyway
Look forward to the first of the month

You wanna blow it on clothes and ink and lifestyle
But this ride will only get you down the street
One guess as to where you end up
Same place as last week
A place where nobody knows your name

Only way I'm going out
Is if we get so fucking drunk
That I will not know myself
So I will not give a fuck

I want to wake up
By going to sleep
I want to see the clouds
From the bottom of the sea
From the bottom of the sea

You just wanted to escape
But life was just a phone call away
With your crutch
You don't care so much
Let the world drown in the sound
Of my mouth calling for another round

Only way I'm going out
Is if we get so fucking drunk
That I will not know myself
So I will not give a fuck

I want to wake up
By going to sleep
I want to see the clouds
From the bottom of the sea
From the bottom of the

C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
Turn it upside down

Only way I'm going out
Is if we get so fucking drunk
That I will not know myself
So I will not give a fuck

I want to wake up
By going to sleep
I want to see the clouds
From the bottom of the sea
From the bottom of the

C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
C-R-U-T-C-H
Turn it all around
Turn that bottle upside down
Turn it upside down
Track Name: Civilized
All I want to know
Is how far you think I'll go
Will I take it all the way
Only a fool would wait around to see

Well I want to be
A one man army
Taking on the world
Taking on myself

Break
Down!

I feel domesticated
Like an animal
In a pleasant and comfortable cage
I feel inoculated
To my own survival instincts

All I want to know
Is how far you think I'll go
Will I take it all the way
Only a fool would wait around to see

Well I want to be
A one man army
Taking on the world
Taking on myself
I'm tired of being
Ci-vi-lized
Ci-vi-lized
I want to

Break
Down!

The best is silent no longer
It speaks in a strong but humble voice
"Too long have I been in slumber
I will lead you back to your true self"

All I want to know
Is how far you think I'll go
Will I take it all the way
Only a fool would wait around to see

Well I want to be
A one man army
Taking on the world
Taking on myself
I'm tired of being
Ci-vi-lized
Ci-vi-lized

Organic gone frantic
Emotional pantantic
It smells like burning plastic
It's a pleasure epidemic
Our needs are effortless
And so many people are lifeless
Is there a connection
Or am I just being a brat?
The same old story
About beaujeu and malaise
Making a push for the good old days
??? old country
Well its not so far away
And if you would choose the same
Took em all this way
Until we have a date
Well I'm fed up

Lets go
Back to the
Lets goback to the
Break

Lets go
Back to the
Lets goback to the
Break
Down!

All I want to know
Is how far you think I'll go
Will I take it all the way
Only a fool would wait around to see

Well I want to be
A one man army
Taking on the world
Taking on myself
I'm tired of being
Ci-vi-lized
Ci-vi-lized
I want to

Break

Ci-vi-lized
Track Name: Old Heroes Young Villains
[Verse 1]
I'm an armchair patriot
Part time revolutionary armpit
Minimum wage slave
Don't stick your fingers through my cage
I'm the wonder of our age
If life was a video game
Then I might engage

[Verse 2]
But I'll just call it day
Because I ain't slaving away
To try and figure things out
To try and better the world
I'll just keep my head low
And watch some telly
Getting smelly
With this belly
I got no meaning

[Chorus]
I'm scared to know
Where things might go
I'm just going with the flow
In a world of super villains
And anti-heroes
And you

[Verse 3]
But every once in a while
With a wince, I get a glimpse
Of something greater than me
A thing I don't want but could be
And it's pulling me in
Heart first, head last
And it forces me to think
Going way too fast

[Chorus]
I'm scared to know
Where things might go
I'm just going with the flow
In a world of super villains
And anti-heroes
And you

[Bridge]
It's said no rest
For the wicked
It's said no rest
For the wicked

[Outro]
I don't
Want to live in a world where
Nothing matters
And I won't
Run to the comfort of hope anymore
And I don't
Want to live in a world of good and evil
And I don't
Want to be your soldier anymore
Track Name: February War
Standing on the curb, wasting my life, waiting for a bus
The 36 was full, the 13 was late, I think I've had enough
Standing in the grime, that seat was mine, I said "what the fuck"
Pray to the gods, they show me pity and beam me up
But now I'm stuck, so I read my book and wish for better, better luck

Who are these people?
What are these customs?
What is this language?
I don't understand

I feel the battle rage
I feel the steel on my hands
I feel the wind on my face
I am not of this

Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right

I finally got myself a seat by the homeless guy who'd been smoking crack
He said his name was Phil and this was the bus he's gonna hijack
I had to ask "Would it be too much to drive me home?"
He said, "Where to?" I didn't know, because I've never, never known

Who are these people?
I don't understand

I feel the battle rage
I feel the steel in my hands
I feel the wind on my face
I am not of this

Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right

I feel the battle rage
I feel the steel in my hands
I feel the wind on my face
I am not of this land

I feel the battle rage
I feel the steel in my hands
I feel the wind on my face
I am not of this

Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me an alien
Thank you god for making me all right

Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me all right
Thank you god for making me all right

Yeah
Go!
Track Name: Slater
They ain't got a med for this one yet
Come on!

A social construction
A meme of destruction
A tyranny of isms based off of assumptions
There is no rhyme or reason to it

[Chorus]
Christian Slater!
Where you at?
I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad!
I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn Are you with me?
Whats going on!

[?]

[Chorus]
They ain't got a med for this one yet
Christian Slater!
Where you at?
I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad!
I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn Are you with me?
Whats going on!

No true objective
When its all subjective
It's a mindless machine and you're in its way
There is no rhyme or reason to it

[?]

[Chorus]
They ain't got a med for this one yet
Christian Slater!
Where you at?
I don't miss the 90's but the 80's was rad!
I'd play dig dug all night long and bust run-dmc till the early dawn
Are you with me?
Whats going on!

Whats to be done?
Flushing pills is fun
They diagnose with a gun
Don't eat the bullet!
There is no rhyme or reason to it

Cristian!
Cristian!
Cristian!
Slater!
Track Name: The Best Revenge
Every species on the planet
Waits in a traffic jam
In the passenger seat sits extinction
Poised to take hold of the wheel
And turn the car into oncoming traffic

Is there really time
To get it all right?
If we wait any longer
It feels like suicide
Let's go
And not just hope for the best
We gotta put it on the med
'Cause nature has the best revenge

You know I do

Will somebody tell me
Is it all just a big trick?
Is there nothing money can't save you from?
Or does god have a hand in it?
Or does it all come down to
The status quo?
I got my other priorities
I let my instincts go

Revenge!

I just can't shake the feeling
Like it's all gone wrong
I feel it sitting next to me
And it won't be long
'Cause when you've reached the top
And you've grown too strong
There's only one thing to rely on
And that's self-destruction
Track Name: Millenial Pox
Ice cold hand of your newest enemy
Smell the fear as the bodies grow sweaty
The strongest god is the deity of the petty
In the pantheon of isolated passions
He wins
For the city sings its prayers to him
With every silent prejudice
And every warm smiling bias
The sky turns heavy and humorless
We're redefining our sentience
In the golden age of loneliness

And you think you're doing it
You're doing it, you're doing it right
And then like freshly opened eyes
Exposed to broad day light
S this feeling or convincing?
Or is my gut misleading
All control is an illusion
And all compassion is a drug
Smile on drip
Pull the goddamn plug
Long live the cult of thug, amen
I'm walking down the streets of Los Emptiness
I step over the ghost of hope still restless

And you think you're doing it
You're doing it, you're doing it right
You keep your mind tight
To keep the mood light
Don't let yourself show
Don't let the others know
It's all just pretend

My greatest friend
Is a black box
In the golden age
Of loneliness

In a world where men become demons
And women into witches
All realness is fleeting
How easily it all switches
With great overtures of friendship
That don't mean shit
When you're about to be somebody else's meal ticket
And the irony is that it feeds the leech
That keeps us out of reach
You can not teach
The broken glass on the beach
Set to lacerate
The heavy soles of fate

Just when you thought it was safe to be alone
Track Name: In the Service of the Enemy
I know I'm paranoid
But I still think they might be out to get me
I'm in bitter need
Of a new kind of enemy
I'm going agoraphobic
My ass sits idle
But my mind is hardly stoic
My blood pressure keeps on rising
There more I keep depressing
And denying

Me name sake said that hell was other people
Now I know how dealing with the petty
And the feeble
Can make you evil
From a babe's mouth is the candy that I steal
I'm climbing up and down on fate's oblong wheel
You're strong in the bow, but weak in the keel
I'll look you in the eye
But behind the scenes is where I deal
I'm making excuses for the seams that are ripping
The only thing I hate more than digging
Is begging!

Back in the day, it was so perfect
I had my purpose
It was all very worth it
But now my little victories
Are just empty calories
I'm in bitter need
Of a new kind of enemy
Something harmless but scary
To keep them in line
To keep them wary
A point in time that can't be carried
A memory that can't be buried

There is no solutions
Just the problems that I'm selling
They'll make you feel better
Even though you're aiding and abetting
So quit your whining
Eat some pills for your stressing
Go buy some more debt and plan a
Pretty June wedding
Make lots of kiddies
Because the gravy is never ending
Have everything you want
As long as the banks keep on lending
I've made my sell
And I hope I'm not offending
Because the only thing I hate more than digging
Is begging!

I want to wear your face like a condom
I'll never win
