Bigger Than Jesus

Good Advice 02:35
Running out of time ( ------- 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

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
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


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.
