Flesh Wound 02:00
Bloody knuckles Beaten down Pick myself up off the ground Rise and shine Fell one more time Too much on my mind Mom is god Dad is dead Just enough to fuck with my head Mom is god Dad is dead Just enough to fuck with my head Chorus: Flesh wounds Showing up like a bruise Flesh wounds On the inside of you Flesh wounds I got one or two, one or two Flesh wounds Remind myself I have to crawl Stand tall through it all Empty bag and Never feeling bad About the times I've had I scrape my knees Make them bleed For the sake of pain Paper cut what the fuck Head first into love Chorus Awe man, do you have any Band-aids? I don't know if my blood will coagulate My skin my scabs are starting to break Oh, this fucking hurts My gut is sprained Left alone By my friends In the end Who am I? Look in my eyes Loyalty never pays One more scar On my heart I cut my legs I cut my arms This is me I fall apart To show you all my pain Chorus

The chuckle down the hall you know I can hear. You ridicule me and I don’t even care In time your mockery will become your fate Tune it out I’m not listening No way you’re better than me Chorus: Chase it erase it throw it away I’m not your laughing Stock x2 It seems my backs against the wall Downright bored of it all No time to second guess No time to quit Antagonize Push me aside No way you’re better than me Chorus Stop that laughing Come a little closer Say what you gotta say Be man enough to say to my face Your jokes run dry This crowd is crushing me I’m checking the rear view no way you’re better than me Chorus x2

about

The debut album from NorCal garage punks Critical Response!

"Punk at its best! Critical Response’s eponymous first album, delivers a speeding mass of sound! Its stripped down, bare, high stakes, in your face lyrics and searing vocals flying over bass, guitar, and drums played with tsunami force, make Critical Response a band to be reckoned with!" ~ Marc Zegans, author of “P(un)k Poets Too Fucked to Drink,” and other poems.

about

Critical Response Santa Cruz, California

A punk rock poetess who's equal parts Iggy Pop and Poly Styrene. A towering bassist whose boom is bigger than J.J. Burnel and Lemmy combined. A punk blues pulpiteer whose holy trinity is Strummer, Ramone, and Thunders. A mysterious stickman with a hardcore soul and a trash can beat. Put 'em together and what do you get? Critical Response. Sound the alarm! ... more
