about

The Upset Barcelona, Spain

They say Oi! ain't dead. Well, it's almost anihilated in this town. So in the month of November of 2013 we decided to form a band and see if it brings some fresh air, or finally puts an end to its misery.

Track Name: Just Yesterday
You say you're moving forward
just leaving me behind
You run in the wrong direction
right before my eyes

I guess the more the world's changed
I remained the same
You say I'm stuck in the past
I say I'm true to myself

Giving up is not an option
when you love with all your heart
Givin up is not an option
and we knew it from the start

and we knew it from the start

and we knew it from the start

I've got pride in my passion
and passion in my pride
maybe you just don't see it
but I feel it deep inside

You say you're moving forward
I think you run away
from everything we stood for
to me it's just yesterday

Giving up is not an option
when you love with all your heart
Givin up is not an option
and we knew it from the start

and we knew it from the start

and we knew it from the start
Track Name: Dead City
Welcome to where we live
nothing's true and nothing's free
you pay if wanna breath
and the air is full of shit

Dead City BCN
where all you dreams die in the end
Dead City BCN
where all you dreams die in the end

And the council bastards say
better shup and obey
no rebels no deviates
All resistance is in vein

Dead City BCN
where all you dreams die in the end
Dead City BCN
where all you dreams die in the end

They close the venues they close the pubs
they hate our way of fun
they don't want to have us around
coz to them we are the scum!
Track Name: We Are The Enemy
We are the ones you don't wanna hear – We are the enemy
We're at the wrong side of your spear – We are the enemy
The plague knocking at your heaven's door – We are the enemy
The vomit on society's floor – We are the enemy

And you can close you eyes but we won't disappear
Try to ignore us but we're still here
Like an ugly scar we ain't going anywhere
It's time for us to make a stand

We're the earth shaking under your feet – We are the enemy
We are the stray dogs on your streets – We are the enemy
Unleashed against this fucked up world – We are the enemy
waiting for the Empire's fall – We are the enemy
Track Name: You're A Bore
You think the world stops everytime
you feel the urge to spread your shit
it doesn't even cross your mind
how irrelevant you can be

You're a bore
You're a bore
and I can't take it anymore

You're a bore
You're a bore
and I can't take it anymore

It's not just that nobody cares
about what you think you must share
you think yours is the only truth
that's what I'm gonna say FUCK YOU
Track Name: Never Retreat
Black winged shadows cross the sky
the bombs are falling and a nation cries
Plagues war hunger around the world
and governments watching from the top

Never – We'll never retreat
We'l never surrender – We'll never retreat

Unemployment and desperation
religious madness and police oppression
World war three knocking on our door
and corporations laughing from the top

Never – We'll never retreat
We'l never surrender – We'll never retreat

The sound of shots in a public school
Paramilitary on the streets
Politicians laughing laugh at us as fools
and corporations look at us as sheep

But

Never – We'll never retreat
We'l never surrender – We'll never retreat
Track Name: Rose Of Fire
In the summer of nineteen o nine
those in power forced the people to fight
but they raised their voices up in the sky
“in your senseless war we don't want to fight”

Working men dying for the rich men's cause
Riots started when all hope was lost
Churches burnt down and stones were thrown
“Liberty and justice is all we want”

In a day to come – the rose will burn again
In a day to come – with fire in our hearts
In a day to come – the rose will burn again
In a day to come – we're gonna take it back

Barcelona calling a general strike
Solidarity was the battle cry
Against the stupid colonial greed
Against their army sent to kill

The city was on fire on that tragic week
many died bleeding on the streets
but the spirit will never fade away
they'll need bigger bombs to stop us again
Track Name: Sick On You
I've had enough of the self-help craze
don't wanna hear about no new age
I don't wanna be a lythium zombie
I'm fucked up and you can do nothing

What our grandparents would think of us
they survived famine and wars
and our first world problems can be solved
reading some Coelho's quote

GIVE ME MY RAGE GIVE ME MY ANXIETY
I'M SICK ON YOU AND I JUST CAN SAY – FUCK YOUR SOCIETY
THAT'S WHAT I FEEL AND I WANNA KEEP IT REAL
I'M SICK ON YOU AND I JUST CAN SAY – FUCK YOUR SOCIETY

I've had enough of sunset pics
and wisdom in quotation marks
you say you wanna set me free
I say I want to kick some ass

What's so wrong with feeling the pain
I like my blood boiling in my veins
You want me quite you want me tamed
I rather go fucking insane
Track Name: Never Too Old
I look in the mirror I see my face
I'm not the teenager I used to be
My hangovers now last two days
But I know it's not yet time to quit

Needle hits the record and I feel the beat
two guitars clash and there's no way back
this way of life ain't for the weak
we may get old but we never grow up

Years pass by but we don't quit
NEVER TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT
Years pass by but we don't quit
NEVER TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT

People ask what I've done with my life
and I say I live it my own way
Music playing loud, friends by my side
I'm still here and here I'll stay

Needle hits the record and I feel the beat
the stomping begins and there's no way back
this way of life ain't for the weak
we may get old but we never grow up
Track Name: Another Night
The lights are on and the doors are open
and I am anything but sober
wandering among the factories
that train's not gonna wait for me

Under the accusing sun
I pretend I don't give a damn
But I know in a while I will regret
those one too many drinks I had

Another night comes to its end
another night dancing in the wasteland
another night comes to its end
Another night drinking with the damned

Empty pockets and a happy soul
beer in hand I laugh and howl
a few more lines across my face
another weekend closer to my fate

Under the accusing sun
I pretend I don't give a damn
But I know in a while I will regret
those one too many drinks I had
