The government wants to overthrow its subjects
GOP has issued secret codes
CIA has put them on our stop signs
FBI is tapping in our phones
Billy Bob's the slick one
But we've seen his dishonest smiles to the crowds
I praise the press, I surf the internet
Hope I'm not revealed as a coward

Got my gun and got my flag
Believe everything I've read in all the mags
So paranoid and ready to kill
Shootin' kids from my windowsill
Insane, demented, paranoid, pissed
But I'm gonna have to deal with it
Cause reform is bloodshed, reform is hate
Reform is fear, reform because
The government stole my Germs CD

I sell my peace by forcing hate
The violence on the TV screen
I believe segments of "Hard Copy"
No one else knows where I've been
I'm just a nazi with old glory
Turning it into a confederate shroud
I charge anarchy and comfort
I gotta make my buddies proud

Got my beer and civil war mind
Blast from the past with much more lies
Seen as criminals, not as us
True pacifists don't suck
Insane, demented, paranoid, pissed
AK-47, it deals with it
Cause reform is bloodshed, reform is hate
Reform is crass, reform because
The government stole my Germs CD

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
