Testo della canzone Crass Commercialism (Black Flag), tratta dall'album Everything Went Black

Crass Commercialism - Black Flag

I'm so damaged
I just lost my fucking job and my girlfriend almost killed herself
I don't what I'm gonna do
I've been taking pills all day, I'm so fucked up
Tomorrow night, I think I'm gonna end it all
By going to see Black Flag at the Fleetwood in Redondo Beach
They're playing with the Mau Maus and the Chiefs and Vicious Circle and
And the Screwz and the Descendents, and
It's gonna cost four dollars
I don't know where the fuck I'm gonna get it
I'm probably gonna have to steal the money or something
I don't care
What the hell, you know?
Like, I just
I think I'm just gonna end it all with Black Flag tomorrow at the Fleetwood
I hope all you punk-ass motherfuckers gonna be there too because
I've just
I'm gonna end it fucking all, man! Tomorrow!
I'm fucking damaged, I'm so fed up!
Tomorrow night!
I'm gonna end it all with Black Flag at the goddam Fleetwood!
Redondo Beach!
I can't take it anymore

Hi, I'm Black Flag's slave
I obey Black Flag
I love to graffiti Black Flag all over the walls of the city and if you don't like it
Well, that's too bad

You don't have to be a white minority
But come to see Black Flag, Friday, June 27th
With Redd Kross, Frigidaires, and the Descendents at the Station
18047 Valley Boulevard in the City of Industry
Just north of the 60 Freeway between Azuza and Nogales

That's 964 4431
Remember, this Friday, June 27th
Black Flag with Frigidaires at the Station

All the good muck loves Black Flag

For nothing can be worse than this

C'mere, you know something?
One of these days the Nuremberg trials will happen again about hardcore punk
And I'll just be telling 'em
"I was just a soldier, following orders, pushing the buttons"
And no, I don't wash my hands of the whole thing, I-
My hands are really fucking dirty, but what do you say after you've said what you've said?
(Can we live with the hub?)
We can live with the hub
The heap, deep-dish gelatinous hub

To take Spot's case on this very important issue
He was just working there!
Just trying, at all costs, just to-
(It's the Nuremberg trials, shut up!)
Just to live with the hub
Just to work there!

I mean, I-, I-, I know-
I don't feel bad at all about the, you know, the scars that I may have caused
You know, and I was responsible for the whiskey riots, but, um

(Objection! Objection!)

Well, I'm just being truthful here
(You're a god)
Hahahaha
I don't want to be God

(Turn the reverb down!)
Okay
(Turn the reverb down!)
I don't care

My client is not
Is not of sound mind at the moment

That's not true
I'm of very sound mind
I was of sound mind when I pushed the buttons
When I pushed the faders
When I blew up the world
I-, I-, I knew what I was getting into
It's just that...

I'm afraid my client is not of sound mind
He doesn't know quite what he's saying
He, um, had nothing to do with blowing up the world
He only makes the music for (Shut up!) Black Flag
Um, if, gentlemen...
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
If you think that by mixing the music for Black Flag
(And the commercials) And the commercials
Which admittedly were a bit obnoxious to say the least
Were, um, had anything to do with the world being made radioactive at this point
Then...

I mean, we're all cancerous
We're all gonna die
We all knew that when we were born

(No we're not!)
(We'd used to live like Gloria Vanderbilt)

I'd rather be cancerous

Uh, what the hell, this is Harold Sfinkel saying, uh
Now that you heard the record why don't you go out and buy it now?
I mean we got this Black Flag thing and the commercials coming at you
And it's like we're kind of like closing the door on the past
What do you think about that theory, Dad?

Hahaha, well, I'll tell you son
You know, this uh, this Black Flag stuff reminds of when
Back in the '30s, hahaha, I used to record live remotes, hahaha
Like your Tommy Dorseys and your Duke Ellingtons, hahaha
Your Dwight Eisenhowers and all those guys, hahaha!

Yeah what the hell
I guess it must've been pretty fun back in those days
Eh, Dad?

Yeah!
I tell ya, they really dropped the real bombs back then!
Haha, and I caught 'em all! Haha
But I tell ya, you know, this Black Flag stuff is like, uh
The best stuff I've been into, y'know?

Yeah, uh, like me too, uh, hey, wow
Like gelatinous and all that stuff like my nose is healed and, uh
What the hell, you know, like the music's got your power
It's got like pizzazz, it's got your drive, it's got your edge

It's got your poon tang, son, don't forget about your poon tang!
Hahaha, poon tang is what it's all about, son!
And they just hook me up with some of that good 40 year old stuff
And I'm gonna go in the garage with it, hahaha, right now
And we're gonna shut the door with it, and, everything else, hahaha
C'mon honey, how about a blow job?
Me too, what the hell
