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: New Year's Resolution
No need for panic now
There’s only one solution
No need for panic now
A new year’s resolution

New year’s resolution
So brittle, so self-assured
New year’s resolution
I’ll never die of devotion

A lifeline in shallow water
I’ll never die of devotion
A lifeline in shallow water
Quick way to end the commotion

A new year’s resolution
Stubbornly renewing faith
A new year’s resolution
By all means it’s never too late
A new year’s resolution
Grasp the rope and don’t let go
A new year’s resolution
Please don’t let me go
Track Name: Snakes and ladders
Boxes full of memories
I've been dragging along
for far too long
School results
Fashion insults
All taken into account

The things we do
The things we say
Snakes and ladders

Mental notes
Stories untold
No greater agony

The things we do
The things we say
Snakes and ladders

Broken hearts
Lots of spare parts
We dont know any better

Head full of thoughts
Thoughts filled with fear
Out of control
It just goes on and off
Nightmares and daydreams
Slowly start to merge

Boxes full of memories
I've been dragging along
for far too long
School results
Fashion insults
All taken into account

The things we do
The things we say
Snakes and ladders

Mental notes
Stories untold
No greater agony

The things we do
The things we say
Snakes and ladders

Broken hearts
Lots of spare parts

Pictures in a drawer
Tell more stories
Than the ones on the wall
Track Name: Serene thoughts
There are two sides of the story
But I’m not interested in yours
Fuck your moment of clarity
Still stuck in revolting doors

Multiple masks to fit your face
To cover up that empty soul
Blank yet raging eyes
Just about to lose control

Nauseous feeling heading into the night
Serene thoughts give me a terrible fright

I got my head in my hands
As I’m thinking it through
Stuck with no answers
What am I gonna do

Please stay awake
Stick around and linger
Lets bury ourselves in the past

Please stay awake
Don’t drift of and wander
Reminiscing is all that is left
