Voila le deuxième album d'UNION JACK ! Fiers représentants en France d'un punk poisseux mêlant rythmiques chaloupées, flow hiphop sombre et conscience politique tenace. Ce nouvel opus nous délivre 10 nouveaux titres un peu plus posés mais toujours aussi vindicatifs et accrocheurs.

Track Name: Needs
Stand back from our damn mass consumption The snake’s biting its tail and shows no reaction We are customers and therefore concerned We must think more responsibly Tons of useless items, overproduction, food bleached in the dustbins for no reason, while people die in the streets from starvation, the system goes on... Take the stand respond for all your actions, Wash these blooded hands and stop filling the garbage We'd better understand before it’s too late Consume the less we can and we’ll feel better then

Humankind can’t get so blind this will lead us all to destruction Life is not buy, buy and die try to opt for a different option Take a breath and feel alive, feel alive, feel alive, Don’t need no ads to survive to survive, to survive

Set new rules and engage in action Find a new balance, another direction There’s not even time for hesitation Change must be done with massive conviction We’ve all got the choice yeah think it twice or we’ll pay the invoice so become wise The things that you think you need are superficial They give you a feeling of joy that’s artificial Consumption’s encouraged by the many commercials We should all go for a quick return to the essential Please beware of this needless production Choose, don’t suffer, stop alienation It depends on you and me we can go for sobriety Or we’d be guilty of what we’ll see it’s our responsibility Reduce consumption is the only solution Useful frustration for this overfed nation Do you disagree? change your opinion The only way I see this is the final caution
Track Name: Eight Letters
Welcome to a world where violence grows, your life doesn't weigh, but the crime does pay As you gonna see, nothing is safe, take care of your security I’ll tell you son the ugly truth, this place’s not fabulous, it’s dangerous and if you don’t wanna waste your youth, look out for yourself...

…when you hit the city ain’t no pity, only brutality, no one’s gets off scot-free in this J-U-N-G-L-E Swear that you will always use your mind and avoid these wicked traps Hey kid, beware and you’ll be fine, this is my advice Violence spreads like a disease, in the streets and the alleys, all around the seven seas This world is insane and mean, I hope you know what I mean, look at the deep shit we’re in

Another night, another fight, It’s easy to beat someone when it’s ten on one, Weak people don’t act alone, they can beat you till death

Violence spreads like a disease, in the streets and the alleys, all around the seven seas One day, wrong way, you may have a fight, for just a glance This world is insane and mean, I hope you know what I mean, look at the deep shit we’re in The worst exists, there’s no limit to violent tales

Hate, fear, pain & violence, stop suffering in silence

Don’t turn the other cheek as Jesus said / or you’ll regret it, dead on the street Save your honour and find your balls / try to survive, fight for yer life Break some bones / and shoot the bastards / Smash some jaws / Beat up these cowards Forget rules / They won’t protect you / Never lose / No other way out
Track Name: Rejection Syndrome
Some people create their own shell, A mental wall that protects them We mustn’t trust appearances / go find this shelter you can’t see from the outside Go beyond all differences / enter it to get to know what’s on the inside Who cares about those who need it most? Past troubles and doubts weigh on their minds Some hearts should be just listened to Give a hand, try to comprehend / No need to judge, just go ahead

We’re like this, you’re like that, our worlds, a long way apart Feel dismissed, bleeding heart, don't look back, get a fresh start Everybody deserves serenity Everybody must face reality

If they need to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives, they would be relieved to know (that) they can count on you Never easy to deal with their own / history Bad memories always remind them of / their frailty

An insidious kind of social discrimination, a complete absence of friendship and compassion Look around, they’re always rejected, victims of a lack of understanding

Even little things are good to give / a smile & some warmth to help them feel better Depression is our century’s disease / so break their fucking shell....break their fucking shell...break their fucking shell Put yourself out of your misery
Track Name: Vaccines and Pills
Financial worries don’t mean much to me It's time to pay for your treatment You’re weak and poor, your liability don’t bother us with your problems We may help you if you can pay fees your health will cost you more than your rent You should bear in mind, there’s nothing for free you’re such a lucrative client

Vaccines and pills, an eternal business, poverty kills more than anything else No choices left, suffering from sickness, doctors won’t help and they couldn’t care less Try to raise a child when you got no dough, some just didn’t choose, I’d like you to know They work hard for what? They’re treated like rats, with more chance to sink rather than swim

Corporate pharmaceutical industry What do you stand for? Got no values apart from the money I was waiting for more Never showing any empathy, (I) thought you'd be my saviour Causing death through your laboratory It's rotten from the core

Bad Health, bad luck, sad reality, I feel so sick with this misery Tell me what’s wrong with our society, people are dying coz of their poverty

Vaccines and pills, an eternal business, poverty kills more than anything else No choices left, suffering from sickness, doctors won’t help and they couldn’t care less Try to raise a child when you got no dough, some just didn’t choose, I’d like you to know They work hard for what? They’re treated like rats, with more chance to sink rather than swim

Things won’t change as long as money rules this world Things won’t change as long as we don’t change
Track Name: Not Here to Stay
Time goes by quickly, soon you will be an ancient story, an old memory, But until your final breath, as long as you’re on this earth, you’d better enjoy your stay, Take your chance, don’t miss it, Life is a one-way trip, no return and no exit

Reach your aims before you fade away There’s not any replay, find and draw your way You can’t rewind, live life to the full, you may There’s no one here to stay, so enjoy every fuckin'day

Life’s tough this evening, I feel like crying / I'm weeping sometimes Stop hesitating, follow your feelings / Don't waste your lifetime Don’t have any regrets Do not be upset

A new life's starting each day Don’t run away let your passion show you the way Find it someday It could all just end up today Maybe today Use your time, never give it away Not here to stay

It's time for resilience! Ease the pain by dropping out won’t set you free from your anxiety Black thoughts, swearing that black is white, will catch you suddenly Stages make sense, so try your best to jump the fence
Track Name: All Ages
I sing at the top of my lungs from the first day Some dreams have now gone away, but the next are on the way My vision has changed with age, but the years can't touch my rage Getting older gives more ink, so enjoy and fill the page! Don't know what tomorrow is gonna be like, Whatever, I am not feeling uptight, I'm having good times thinking of the past, I'm looking forward to the future acts What's going on next? / No matter, I'll change the text / I live in the present tense / And I enjoy this vortex Each day may be so different / a new step in my existence / That's why now I am this man

I grew older but I'm still the same, I put new pictures in my ancient frame My own book will not be arranged until I write down the last page I follow this damaged road, sometimes I'm blinded by the rain, sometimes I hit the sauce till six, sometimes I wonder who I am

I know some people think that age will bring them wisdom, but to me, it rhymes with more problems and less fun Age it's all in the head, don't take yourself seriously, take your heart as the only guide, never stop dreaming freely Don't believe your grandpa, when he tells your mama he's happier than ever and he wouldn't want to be younger You know what life is worth when you lose what you have loved, enjoy your time on this earth, it's short Unconcerned when you're twenty, still happy when you're thirsty, troubles come when you're forty, with your job and your babies. From your birth to your death / we all learn from our mistakes and / Life never has the same taste
Track Name: Everlasting Rose
I would have liked to stay longer To get to know you a little more It was quite brief, I’ve come and gone / it lasted shorter than I hoped I fought but lost armageddon / I wasn’t strong enough, I feel numb

How could I do better to avoid this end without leaving you broken and sad I wonder if love can last when we’re so far, You'll have to find a new shoulder to cry on

I wish I could tell you the truth / but it hurts so much and I can’t We should have enjoyed more of our youth / These past times were always pleasant Not enough time by your side / Death separated us Out of the blue, from the inside / sick and nauseous

I feel weaker every second but my memory still strong, I’m still wondering what happened, some questions never have answers I did my time, I don’t decide, death is quick when you’re that sick Here it’s so bleak, I feel so weak, I miss your warmth far from your arms I know we’re through / too late to regret It’s time to leave you / not ready yet

How could I do better to avoid this end without leaving you broken and sad I wonder if love can last when we’re so far, Now all we were, will always shine in all these shooting stars

Things were outta control / Now I’m all alone Six feet deep in this hole / my remains and bones Why did I sell my soul? / and quit you quickly? I’m gonna miss you lovely doll
Track Name: Supernova
Music changed my life in a single song; “Lithium”: a shock from the first second And she brings back my memories, it’s a never-ending story Special tunes have this unique taste that’s so much better than the rest You’re my best antidote against loneliness, you keep me afloat

Always true and always there, she cares for me when I’m down In the pain, she’s next to me / with her can’t ever feel lonely All along I knew that this road would be long and beautiful You and me, we live in complete harmony All along I knew that we would last forever You and me, we live in complete harmony

I can’t imagine a day without you / You stand by me when I’m feeling blue I’m stuck in your sound, I take off the ground / You’re the best comfort I’ve ever found Stay as you are, sweet and intense, haunt my guitar, you are my chance M.U.S.I.C., my one and only My reason to be, my life’s philosophy

You still bring back my memories, it’s a never-ending story
Track Name: First Class Criminals
Banks are running dry, the money’s all gone, politicians are adamant : “it’s necessary to spend billions to refill their funds”, they fear the system’s explosion It might be embarrassing when half the world is still starving Banks debts evaporate, markets are corrupted, money’s value is overrated They’re stronger than the states, they rule the whole planet, their profits and their debts are emptying our pockets It’s a tragic scheme, their methods are obscene, they sow poverty and then harvest dirty money A profit-based economy distributes earnings differently It thrives on poverty, in sparing no country, fuck you if you’re hungry

Cash flow’s getting big, debt’s eliminated, more profits for the rich / There is no justice No hope for you and me, in this mad economy, there’s no solidarity / This is a standoff Constant crisis and recession, the reasons for massive starvation / Know your enemy These malfunctions cause no reaction, the system’s locked and under protection

Government and Establishment are infested with these First-class criminals / White collars and traders Money controls the way they think, they’re devoid of all feelings They’re obsessed by benefits / They earn tons more than they can spend Their greed is only pride/power’s always by their side / without any common sense / we’re all bored with their offence Life means less than their damn gold / these crooked bastards are cold / Pay their moms they can be sold

Cash flow’s getting big, debt’s eliminated, more profits for the rich / There is no justice No hope for you and me, in this mad economy, there’s no solidarity / This is a standoff Constant crisis and recession, the reasons for massive starvation / Fight the right enemy> These malfunctions cause no reaction, the system’s locked and under protection

Money doesn’t grow on trees / Do you think they fuckin’know?/ They don’t cause they have no worries/ Now react, don’t let them go Enough paid for their mistakes / Their death should be listed on /on / the stock exchange
Track Name: Sweet & Sour Thrills
These small things always made my day / These pleasant times come to my mind A smile, a laugh and then I’m feeling great / Happiness ain't hard to find And I’ll always keep in mind all the lil’ positive signs that life can show you sometimes, every now and then your star will shine Be upbeat bro, don't covet what you don't own, the void will be filled anyhow Consider every detail but allow yourself to fail/try and be curious, but don’t be too zealous Life is a gift and you should care / happiness comes in many ways There is nothing you can compare / a precious thing that you should share

Life’s got this little something, I... I don’t expect anything from ...life Life’s got this little something, I.. I’ve been upset and I wonder If it’s a real nightmare or a constant pleasure, life’s a bitch when you go from failure to failure Back to black when you’re caught by your setbacks, feelings are drowned, I am down in the dumps now

As the sky darkened / Everything’s going wrong today / Is fate against me? / Bad things happen to my dismay My mood depends on things that are not worth the trouble / I woke up on the wrong side of my bed, full of dread, thinking I would soon be dead, mistreated, defeated, cursed by a nasty godhead Control your temper when the clouds become darker, the world is not so manichean!

Life’s got this little something, I... I don’t expect anything from ...life Life’s got this little something, I.. I’ve been upset and I wonder If it’s a real nightmare or a constant pleasure, life’s a bitch when you go from failure to failure Back to black when you’re caught by your setbacks, feelings are drowned, I am down in the dumps now

This little something, that means everything, surrounded by feelings of sadness and joy Try to catch the magic hidden in each moment of life In every shiver and every laugh, in every kiss and every eye It feels like a breath of fresh air/ It’s real and free / Better days are always ahead / Yes believe me If you look on the bright side of life / I’m sure you’ll see / Don’t miss these wonderful instants / Between you and me
