Face The Fax Leuven, Belgium

FACE THE FAX is a punkrock band from Leuven/Antwerp that started out around 2004.

Combined with a searing live performance, this has made FACE THE FAX a notorious name in the Belgian punkrock scene. ... more

Track Name: Thinking is work
we're all fighting our barricades
we fight a cage of our own make
don't know where from and don't know why
but to break out is why we fight

fight for our lives
I was sure my friends told lies
I just talked trash
while they tried to help me back
out of my routine of projecting hate
that vicious way of getting further from home

I don't believe but I'll just humor you for now
you should already know that there's just no getting around
the same mistakes I made before
thinking is work, I'm going berserk
the truth's unheard

you haven't come to help us out
you made the keys that locked us in
betrayed our trust portrait of hate
but to break out you've got to fight

fight because we see the locks
that we have build so we won't trust
we're finding out, barricades are like a road block
we're lost we're so fucked, stop blaming punk rock
fight to get out, vanquish our doubt

do you know what time it is?
it's time to start giving a shit

I can't act like me no more
this way of blocking out my thoughts
I'm sure I wont be seeing rain
it makes my brain go down the drain
Track Name: People unchanging
we've seen it all before
getting harder to ignore
big fences surround your yard
do you still play from the heart

we're pacifistic anarchists
preach to the choir, it won't end like this

you just forgot about all you learned
when cash became concern

its not like we're giving up the fight
we're left wing
although we're not bright
you know we're fucking right

so now you change your views and change your sympathies
but once the show is done you're full of apathy
who you are and what you'll be
you only flee to what you thinks your destiny

it's not like we're giving up the fight
we'll never give up on this fight

you know this tale is not about them or me
it's not about us
you just don't care about being true
care about feeling the buzz

so now it's clear that we're not changing your beliefs
you hear the screams, not the reason of our rage
who you are and what you'll be
still hoping you will finally be free

I see people unchanging
they're breaking and taking
it all gets wasted by failing and faking

it's not so hard
to reboot and restart
just think about your part
be on your guard
