about

The Establishment Nijmegen, Netherlands

Here it is punks! A group named THE ESTABLISHMENT hailing from The Netherlands with members of Antidote, Brat Pack, Citizens Patrol and Born From Pain. Sounding like a hybrid between 80s hardcore a la POISON IDEA and BLITZ-Oi mixed with some cold wavy post-punk edges, The Establishment will appeal to those on the Goth side of Punk! ... more

Track Name: Rabies
I can lick your face
I can bite it too
Bark all day
Annoy the crap out of you
I’ve got rabies
I’m a man’s best friend
Can chew on a toy
Or chew on your hands

Got a nose for flesh
Got a taste for danger
I’m a damn dog
Paws like razors
Don’t get comfortable
I’m gonna stand my ground
Teeth filled with poison
I’m gonna chase you around

I’ve got rabies
Vicious like hell
Out on the streets
With no brain cells
A marked territory
Is all that i got
I’ve got no owner
I’m calling the shots
No need to get fed
I’ve got bones to pick
Tear you to shreds
Making people sick
I’ve got rabies

Question my behavior
Is it down to nature
Or a lack of nurture
I’m not loyal
Though i claim to be
Close to retardation
As you can see
I’ve got rabies
Track Name: Running On Empty
Day in day out, cant slow down
Moving forward but missing solid ground
Running around chasing an endless goal
Getting drawn towards a black hole

Stop the wining, got a job to do
Going crazy but i gotta pull through
There are lessons to be learned, mistakes to make
But there's a job to do and we gotta pull through

Cause I’m Running on empty
Running on empty nothing i can do
Running on empty
Running on empty gotta pull through
Track Name: Vicious Rumours
Time to dispose of all the lies
Bust this house to splinters
There’s something wrong in this town
And not just the manicured lawns

Curtains are closed, lights are out
Everybody whispers, nobody shouts
Vicious rumors spreading through town
Vicious rumors spreading through town
The latest update on who is who
Friendly neighbors, they are screening you
Vicious rumors spreading through town
Vicious rumors spreading htrough town

Blending in, colors turn grey
There’s no difference between night and day
There’s something creepy about this town
Looks like there’s no one around
Former classmates’ face just changed
In a hurry, changing lanes
There’s something strange about this town
Only ghosts keep hanging around
Track Name: Warning Sign
Pay no mind
Pay no mind
Its just a warning sign

Bruised and broken
I guess I'm paying the toll
For running out of control

Pay no mind
Pay no mind
Its just a warning sign

Stubborn, but what are you gonna do?
Failure button on repeat
Impatience has got me beat
Hard headed
Good fun
No oversight
Damage done
Track Name: Calmed Down
Bring it down to what it means
The damage done it’s on repeat
What we seek not what we need
An enemy on which we feed
Born to run
Running to hide
Standing ground
But out of sight

Shadows long they follow me
Into the dark never disappears

We've calmed down
We've calmed down here
Just a few seconds
Till we return to fear

Liberate us
Of constant fright
A pack of deer
In the headlights
Track Name: Watching The Grass Grow
Summer breeze enters the room
Removes the smell of diapers
I got this kingdom for myself
For at least an hour or so

One ear on the door
The other on the stereo
That red wine mark really shows
But i really don’t want to know

All I wanna do
Is sit here watching the grass grow

Staring through an open door
Crayon drawings on the floor
Where’s that damn remote control
Give me some food for the soul
Track Name: Grey Day
Sick of being jerked around, should i count my blessings?
Don’t know if I’m being picked at or is this part of a lesson?
Alarm clock set, but not for a day like this, need to get away
We’re halfway spring, mind set to fall, it’s just a grey day

It’s a grey day – doing something wrong
It’s a grey day – and its taking too long
It’s a grey day – not a cloud in the sky
It’s a grey day – We’re all living a lie

Need the tension, need the trip, give me friction
Take away all my tools, give me no restrictions
Wide awake, caught in a storm, it’s a weary day
My head aches, not in a conscious state, everything turns grey

I’m not out to carry the weight of the world
Not holding on for the sake of holding on
I’m not out to carry the weight of the world
Looks like we’re human after all
Track Name: After A While
The heart so strong, a bulletproof soul
A carefree mind, you cannot control

Live by these thoughts, repeat the words
An unbreakable spirit, cannot be hurt

Or so they say, what did they do
With some delay, they finally got to you

You accept defeat, and stop to care
Start to pave the road, that leads you nowhere

Straight and narrow, no longer the case
Lying and cheating, stuck in a haze

There wasn’t a warning, just something that grew
But after a while, they finally got to you

It hit me like a slow bullet
But after a while, it gets to you
And all they keep thinking, there ain’t nothing to it
Cause after a while, it gets to you
All-in all its not that complicated
After a while, it gets to you

Or so they say, what did they do
With some delay, they finally got to you
There wasn’t a warning, just something that grew
But after a while, they finally got to you
Track Name: Monday
Memo’s out
But it’s not pretentious
A lot of hassle
Got a lot to deal with
Put down in words
Propagate confusion
Listen to me
Create a delusion

All i want to see all i want to do
I’ve got a lot to gain but nothing to show to you

Point out the truth
Take another direction
Disposable talks
Just do it our way
Stare into nothing
And call it consensus
Divide and conquer
There is no one you can trust
Track Name: Those Who Wait
Sit down and take it easy, there is no reason to rush
All the good ones first so get back to the queue
Take a turn for the worst, we’re all out here just wasting time
From cradle to coffin, its set in stone, we’re not walking in a straight line

All good things come to those who wait

A perfect circle, leaves you wondering, keeps us at our place
Did we miss anything while we were out there doing nothing?
Climb the ladder, take the stairs, is there anybody that really cares?
There is no reason to rush, please tell me, there is no reason to rush

Turn you inside out
All this time on your hands
Turn you inside out
The distance in your eyes
Turn you inside out
No good advice
It’s all bigger than you
Track Name: Going Nowhere
Hear me now I’ve got nothing to say
I’m just busy living, not busy dying
Nothing to prove, nothing to lose
Just going nowhere, or at least I’m trying
No strong believes, hand over the remote
Switch the channel, not the system
Apathy over anxiety, don’t need no sleeping pills

Is it reckless
Stop being restless
Just going nowhere

No compassion, no second chances
Live goes on, as i keep on walking
Groundhog day all over again
Do i want the truth or the comfort of lying
No strong believes, hand over the remote
Switch the channel, not the system
Apathy over anxiety, don’t need no sleeping pills
