about

This was the most controversial of the Surfers albums : it was banned (deemed undesirable) by the South African publications control board. Court case documents and extensive lyrics and liner notes are part of album download. So too are the tracks which were taken off for the UK release. By purchasing the album you get these tracks as free inclusions. They are "Beatle Love Song" and "Meet the New Boss" as well as 2 hidden tracks which appeared on the 80's CD re-release.

Track Name: Running Out Of Time
Running out of time (w.sony)
-------
Maybe I should tell you the truth
We’re holding on to what we’ve got
Its dark they’re hiding in the shadows
Wake up your family have gone
Dance when you’re running out of time
Dance when you’re running out of time

Listen to the sounds in the garden
See the lights by the swimming pool
Get up we’re moving to the city
Some one is knocking on the door
Somebody is breaking down the door
Dance when you’re running out of time
Dance when you’re running out of time
Track Name: Gutted With the Glory
GUTTED WITH THE GLORY

Words and music: W Sony

Let us pray:
OUR FATHER perished
when soldiers WHO blasted ART homes
burst INside firing
HEAVEN HALLOWED horrors
ashes BE of THY NAME
caught in the Crossfire
THY KINGDOM strewn across
the floors of flame
as they COME in her bed
THY WILL BE sitting
to protect their machine
DONE ON EARTH
AS she drew the curtain
IT IS the attack IN HEAVEN
they were using
to GIVE US a mass of tangled steel
and burn the house THIS DAY
the attack through the hallway
borders OUR full DAILY BREAD bullet
that ended her life
AND FORGIVE US
OUR family was killed
by TRESPASSERS
who ran out of the house
through the wall
AS WE FOFIGIVE THOSE frightened children
WHO TRESPASS in defence
AGAINST yesterdays raid against US
AND LEAD US through the wreckage
NOT partly blown off IN pieces
TO TEMPTATION
BUT smouldering civilians
still DELIVER US
Burnt out stereos
FROM the soldiers EVIL guns
FOR cleaning up THINE children
to kill IS the raid
to destroy THE KINGDOM
disgraceTHE POWER
AND everything
we ever owned
gutted with THE GLORY
FOR EVER AND EVER
AMEN
Track Name: National Party
National Party
words: Chris Cutler

We’re having a party
Come along
A national party
Everybody happy
To the book with match
To the square with the book
Everybody dance and sing
Happiness is everything
To the door with the boot
To the boot with the skull
Everybody on their knees
Everybody happy please
Nature not nuture
Will seal our future
Vomit and blood make
Our colourful culture
Everybody on their knees
Everybody happy please
A six inch nail
A phosphor match A
A stick of chalk
A cake of soap
A little pile of teeth and rings
Everybody dance and sing -
The way it looks is everything
