about

This is a remixed version of our long out of print 2002 album, when the band was still called Tastes Like Chicken. The song "No Motivation" was later released on A-F records (Anti-Flag's label) compilation "Fueling The Flames of Revolution III", making it the first appearance of the band under the new name, Black Market Crash.

Track Name: Feelin' Fine
IT'S HARD FOR ME TO LAMENT, IT'S NOT EASY TO CRY,
CAUSE I'VE NEVER FELT BETTER, GRIEFLESS AND SO HAPPY
MY SKINDEEP FEELINGS NEVER REACH MY HEART,
YEAH I'VE NEVER FELT BETTER

SO WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I DON'T FEEL GREY ??
YEAH, WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I DON'T FEEL ANY PAIN ??

EVERYTIME YOU MAY NEED MY HELP
I WILL MANAGE TO WALK AWAY
I CANNOT STAND UP FOR ANYTHING AT ALL
CAUSE I DON'T EVEN BELIEVE IN ME…

TAKE OUT THAT SUN / BRING BLACK CLOUDS AND DARKEN THE SKY
CURSE MY LIFE WITH TRAGEDY AND MAKE ME TASTE INSANITY
TAKE OUT THE SUN - DARKEN THE SKY
STRIKE ME WITH TRAGEDY - AWAKE MY SENSITIVITY
Track Name: Lost
HE ALWAYS SEEMED TO BE LOST IN THE DEPTHS OF MISERY
A CHILD WITH A PROBLEM, A DARK LOOK AND A GRIMACE...
ALMOST EVERY NIGHT HIS STEP DAD SNEAKS INTO HIS BEDROOM
A POOR LITTLE KID WITHOUT CHOICE, WITH NO RIGHTS...
AT THE AGE OF FIVE YOU'RE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO FIGHT
AGAINST SOME CIRCUMSTANCES AND AGAINST SOME OF THE TRIALS OF LIFE...
A SICK STEP DAD AND YEARS OF DREADFUL SILENCE,
AN UNCARING MOM: "IT'S NOT THAT SERIOUS, TOMORROW YOU'LL FEEL BETTER..."
UNTIL THE DAY THE KID REALIZED HE HAS ENOUGH,
HE TOOK A GUN AND THEN HIS STEP DAD HIT THE GROUND...
SO MANY YEARS OF DESPONDENCY SEEMED TO EBB AWAY:
"IF YOU NEED HELP, FORGET ME AND ASK FOR SOMEONE ELSE..."
HE FELT SO FREE, AT LEAST FOR A SECOND
THEN DESPERATION BURSTED OUT, HE KNEW HE WOULD NEVER FIND PEACE...
HE FELT SO FREE, WHEN HE PULLED IT AGAIN
"GOODBYE BELOVED FAMILY, GOODBYE EVERYBODY GUESS I SEE YOU IN HELL"
GOODBYE...
Track Name: Regrets
HOW CAN I STILL BELIEVE IN YOU?
YOU BETRAYED ALL MY CONFIDENCE AND TRUST AND I CANNOT
EXPLAIN THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT NOW,
NOW THAT WE BOTH KNOW WHAT HAPPENED...
IT'S NO MORE LIKE YESTERDAY,
NOW WE ARE ACTING LIKE THE ONES WE HATED, LIKE THE ONES WE CRITICIZED
STUPIDITY AND PRIDE BROUGHT US TO A POINT WHERE TALKING IS NOT THAT EASY...
MY LIFE IS NOT THAT EASY EVERYDAY, I FEEL MYSELF LOCKED IN A CAGE, AND I CAN'T ESCAPE
MY LIFE IS NOT THAT EASY EVERYDAY BUT I TRY TO PUSH IT FURTHER, FURTHER EVERYDAY...
I KEEP ON ASKING YOU THE TRUTH, BUT WE NEVER HAVE THE COURAGE TO ADMIT HOW IT HAPPENED...
WHAT'S FUCKING WRONG WITH US, I THOUGHT I WAS YOUR BEST FRIEND TO WHOM YOU COULD ALL EXPLAIN...
WEREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO SHARE...
ALL THE PROBLEMS WE COULD HAVE AND THE HARD TIMES WE COULD GO THROUGH ?
I GUESS IT'S NO MORE THAT WAY
NOW WE ARE ACTING LIKE THE ONES WE HATED, STUPID AND PROUD

REGRETS ARE SPLINTERS POISONING OUR HEARTS (X2)
WE ARE BOTH TOO PROUD, TOO PROUD TO SAY "I'M SORRY"
I GUESS WE HAVE WHAT WE DESERVE
WE HARVEST WHAT WE SOWED
GOOD TIMES VANISHED, REGRETS REMAIN...
Track Name: No Motivation
GOT NO MOTIVATION - FOR YOUR COMPETITION
SEVERAL YEARS OF DOIN' NOTHIN' AND I FEEL FINE...
AN INDOLENT SLACKER, YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME RUNNING OUT OF TIME
A SHIRKER A LOSER, UNMOTIVATED, NO PARTAKER OF YOUR TRAPPING RAT RACE - NO PARTAKER - NO PARTAKER !!

GOT NO MOTIVATION - GOD BLESS PROCRASTINATION
MY ROOM IS A MESS, ENTERILY COVERED WITH UNPAID BILLS
I SLEEP ALL DAY OR GET UP AT 12, THEN IS SIESTA TIME
A SHIRKER A LOSER, UNMOTIVATED, NO PARTAKER OF YOUR FUCKING RAT RACE OHHHHHH OHHHHH
Track Name: Trader
THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU GO CAUSE ONCE YOU'RE IN YOU CAN'T SLOW DOWN
THEY VAUNT THE ADVANTAGES THEY HIDE THE REST
THE MORE YOU STAY, THE LESS YOU'LL ANSWER NOOO

NOOO, ANOTHER HURTFUL MEMORY, PREPARE YOURSELF FOR ANOTHER BREAKDOWN - CANT' YOU FEEL IT ?
NOOO, ANOTHER BURNOUT, PREPARE YOURSELF FOR ANOTHER BREAKDOWN
CAN'T YOU FEEL IT ?

YOUR NEW LIFE, SO CHALLENGING : HOW MANY SALARIES FOR A BRAND NEW CAR ?
YOU SOLD YOUR IDEALS FOR SOME PETTY TIPS / YOU SOLD YOUR SOUL, HOW CHEAP DID YOU SELL YOUR SOUL !

AND WHEN THE STORM ERUPTS IN YOUR BRAIN CELLS… YOU GONNA HAVE TO FACE IT, IT'S TIME TO FACE THE LOUSY MAN YOU ARE
YOU ARE JUST AN SYCOPHANT, A WORKAHOLIC YUPPIE, A THOUSAND BROKEN PROMISES, INSIDE YOUR HEAD JUST HURTFUL MEMORIES
Track Name: Dusty Roads
DRUNKEN PLANS ON LONELY NIGHTS, I'M RAVING, AND I CAN'T STOP LAUGHIN' WHEN I HEAR MYSELF QUOTING "ON THE ROAD" (OOHOOHOOH)
FUCK MY BOSS FUCK EVERYONE, MY EMPTY BOTTLES HEAR ME PROCLAIM WITH A TREMBLING VOICE : "I'M GONNA HIT THE ROAD, YEAH !!!"

THE CITY KEEPS KILLING MY NERVES / I REALLY FEEL I'M GOING DOWNNN (CAN'T YOU SEE I'M CRYIN ??)
I NEED A BIG CHANGE A BREAKOUT, CAN'T YOU SEE I'M CRYIN FAR FROM THE DUSTY ROADS

IT'S MONDAY, I'M WORKING AND IT SUXXX, A BITTER TASTE IN MY MOUTH COS' I NEVER HIT THE ROAD (OHOHOH)
I BLAME MYSELF FOR WHAT I AM, FOR ALL THE GUTS I WILL NEVER HAVE, BUT FRIDAY NIGHT, WITH JIM & JACK, WE GONNA HIT THE ROAD YEAHHH !!

THE CITY KEEPS KILLING MY NERVES / I REALLY FEEL I'M GOING DOWNNN (CAN'T YOU SEE I'M CRYIN ??)
I NEED I BIG CHANGE A BREAKOUT - GONNA STEAL A CHEVY AND HEAD FOR THE DUSTY ROADS
Track Name: Live That Way
CAREFREE HARDWORKERS RUSHING EVERY MORNIN'
SWEATING FOR PROMOTIONS AT CYNICAL VALLEY
CAREFREE TAXPAYERS WEARING GREY BUSINESS SUITS
DREAMING OF A FREEDOM PAYABLE BY INSTALMENTS
DOW JONES - FINANCIAL REPORTS AND THEN THE SPORTS PAGE
MILLIONS OF FELLOW CITIZENS JUST LIVE THAT WAY

NOTHIN' GOOD ON TV TONIGHT / BULLSHIT
NOTHIN' GOOD IN YOUR STUPID BORING LIFE... DID YOU SAY PREDICTABLE ??

YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE WEEK-END TO FORGET
YOU'RE WAITING AND HOPING BUT NEVER EVER GETTING
BELIEVE IT OR NOT MOST OF US... LIVE THAT WAY
Track Name: Someone Else
LIVING MY LIFE ON THE SAFE LANE AGAIN
NO RISKS AND NO CONFRONTATIONS
EVERY MOVE THAT I MAKE IS A PERMITED ONE
AND THE TRAIN ALWAYS MEETS THE STATION
DEAR MOM AND DAD, I GUESS YOU'RE PROUD OF WHAT I'M BECOMING
BUT IF YOU ASK ME TWICE, I HAVE TO ADMIT I WISH I WAS SOMEONE ELSE...
I REGRET SO MANY THINGS I DID FOR SOMEONE ELSE
SO MANY THINGS, WE ALL REGRET THOSE THINGS BUT WE KEEP DOIN'EM
I GUESS I GAVE UP TRYING TO CHANGE WHAT SURROUNDS ME, I GUESS IT'S THE EASIEST WAY
AND MAYBE SOMEDAY WITH (SOME) BOOZE IN MY VEINS MY MIRROR WON'T SEEM SO UNBEARABLE, SO IMPLACABLE
Track Name: Paranoid Baby
PARANOIA PARALIZES AND KILLS ME / INSIDE MY HEAD I'M DONE
INSIDE MY HEAD IT'S PRETTY FUCKED UP, PRETTY UNSTABLE AND PRETTY STORMY
ALL MY TORMENTS GRIND DOWN MY BRAIN / I CAN'T BREAK FREEEE!!!
ALL MY FEARS ARE PRETTY HEADSTRONG, PRETTY STICKY THEY NEVER GIVE UP
ANOTHER ATTACK IS ON ITS WAY, WOKE UP, NIGHT-AND-DAY
NO MEDICATION NO DRUG CAN STOP IT, NO BOOZE NO WEED (BUT I'M NO FUCKIN' STRAIGHT-LACED)

INSIDE MY HEAD IT'S PRETTY FUCKED UP, PRETTY UNSTABLE AND PRETTY STORMY

Track Name: Sorrow
I DIDN'T BELIEVE A WORD OF YOUR LAST PHONE CALL
BUT I PLAYED IT LIKE I DID,LIKE SOMETHING COULD REALLY CHANGE
BETWEEN YOU AND ME, A WHOLE LIFETIME OF BROKEN PROMISES
A WHOLE LIFETIME YOU LIED TO US - WHEN WE NEEDED YOU, YOU WERE NEVER HERE
(DURING) ALL THOSE YEARS OF SORROW

YOU FEEL THE NEED TO TALK CAUSE YOU'RE ALONE AGAIN
AND IT'S SO OBVIOUS, YOU ARE AFRAID, CAUSE YOU DESTROYED EVERYTHING
SO MANY LIES - YOU TOLD TO ME, I GUESS YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE
I DON'T EXPECT VERY MUCH FROM YOU, ALL THOSE YEARS YOU HIDE FROM US
NOW YOU COME BACK WAY TOO LATE...
Track Name: I Won't Go
HIS LEGS BEGAN TO TREMBLE, HIS TEMPS STARTED TO SWEAT,
BUT HE SAID : "I WON'T GO"
AND WHEN THE OFFICER INSISTED IN AN INTIMIDATING WAY:
"CAPTAIN, MY ANSWER IS STILL NO, NO SIIIIR!!!!!"

LIVING HIS LIFE WITHOUT SPEECHES OR DOCTRINES
BUT LIVING HIS LIFE BRAVELY
NO USE FOR TENETS WHEN YOU TRUST IN YOURSELF
NO USE FOR TENETS AT ALL

I WON'T GO -- I WON'T GO

YOUR CAUSE IS DEMEANING, YOU WON'T MAKE ME FOLLOW YOU
NO I WON'T GO
YOU CAN PUT ME IN PRISON YOU CAN LOCK ME IN A JAIL
MY ANSWER WILL ALWAYS BE NO,"NO SIIIR !!!!"

LIVING HIS LIFE WITH DISCRETION AND DECENCY
NOT A SUPERHERO AT ALL
NO NEED TO SHOUT LOUD TO RESPECT YOUR BELIEFS
NO NEED TO PARADE OR TALK , JUST:

I WON'T GO -- I WON'T GO
Track Name: Cynical Song
I WAKE UP, GET UP, AND MAKE MY WAY TROUGH THE COLD STREETS OF THIS CITY I HATE
EVERY PAIR OF EYES IN THE SUBWAY STALLS IS A PAINFUL REMINDER…
OF THE THINGS I STOOD FOR WAY BACK THEN, OF THE IDEALS I'VE RENOUNCED A MILLION TIMES BEFORE
MY COMBAT JUST RAN OUT OF GAS, IF YOU CAN'T BEAT'EM BETTER JOIN'EM

- IT'S OUR PRETTY FUCKED UP SOCIETY/ IT'S WHO DRAWS FIRST IT'S ME ME ME / IT'S A PRICE TAG STAMPED ON A PROTEST SONG, EVEN BOB DYLAN WANTS SOME MORE!!!

I'M ALSO TRAPPED IN THE DRAGNET SO DON'T GET ME WRONG, I DON'T JUDGE YOU BUT I CAN'T PRETEND, THAT EVERYTHING'S O.K.
I'M ALSO PART OF THIS MADNESS SO DON'T GET ME WRONG, I CAN'T JUDGE YOU BUT I WON'T PRETEND, THAT EVERYTHING'S O.K. /
"YOU CAN GO FUCK YOURSELF"

EVERY PERSON IS AN ENEMY- EVERYONE IS A POTENTIAL THREAT
EVERY SMILE, EVERY HANDSHAKE, EVERY HUG MAY BE PART OF ANOTHER PLOT SO BETTER
WATCH OUT, DRAW FIRST THEN WALK AWAY, BUT ALL YOUR LIFE BETTER WATCH BEHIND YOUR BACK
ANY ALLEY OF THE CITY COULD, BE WAITING TO TEACH YOU WHAT IS ALL ABOUT

IT'S OUR PRETTY FUCKED UP SOCIETY/ IT'S WHO DRAWS FIRST IT'S ME ME ME / IT'S A CONTRACT SIGNED FOR A PUNK-ROCK-SONG, EVEN GREG GRAFFIN WORKS FOR SONY!!!

I'M ALSO PART OF THIS MADNESS SO DON'T GET ME WRONG, I DON'T JUDGE YOU BUT I CAN'T PRETEND THAT EVERYTHING'S O.K.
IT USED TO BE SO SHOCKING WHEN I WAS A TEENAGE PUNK
NOW I'M USED TO BUT I WON'T PRETEND THAT EVERYTHING'S O.K.
Track Name: Even If...
EVEN IF I LOOK AROUND, EVEN IF I'M STONED MY LIFE DOESN'T HAVE ANY SENSE
DOESN'T HAVE ANY TASTE...
THERE ARE NO MORE CAUSES TO DEFEND CAUSE SILICON WILL SOON REPLACE EVERYONE...

I FEEL AS IF I DON'T LIVE IN THE SAME WORLD AS YOURS
I FEEL AS IF YOUR SELFISHNESS WAS CANKERING MY SOUL...
