about

Poison Planet Chicago, Illinois

What separates punk from other genres of music is its visceral menacing sounds make it the perfect soundtrack for anger & protest. The direct result of this combination of elements is that it became a vehicle for socio-political ideas.

PxP firmly embrace that vehicle in the hope of advocating the idea of personal growth & change; personal is political.

Straight Edge.
Veganism.
Human Rights.

Track Name: The Death of Ideas
The Death of Ideas
“Don't speak to me
I don't want to be preached to
My thoughts are my own
I'll keep them to myself”

The death of ideas
The death of ideas
The death of ideas
The death of ideas

Enforce your individuality
By staying self contained
And you wonder why nothing changes

“Don't speak to me
I don't want to be preached to
My thoughts are my own
I'll keep them to myself”

The death of fucking ideas
Track Name: Retaliate
Take back the streets
Take back our homes
The worth of our youth
Measured in loans

Retaliate
Retaliate
Retaliate
Retaliate to being fucking marginalized

No more public space
No more public trust
Sold off our futures
The only commodity left

Retaliate
Retaliate
Retaliate
Retaliate to being fucking marginalized

Drug Related Causes

Narcotics sold

Global supply of
Narcotics sold
No protections

Drugs flow to feed your addiction
Poison coursing through your veins
The “source” is of no consequence
As long as you're free from pain

Gunned down cold on broken pavement
Territorial pissing leaves pooled blood
Black market capitalism is just the same
With violent retention of markets claimed

Servant Class Citizen

We strive and push but we're held in place
We serve and accommodate by their grace
Our jobs overseas our educations loaned
But we lift them higher on their thrones
Thrones!

We are the working class - servant class citizen
We are the servant poor - servant class citizen
We are the working class - servant class citizen
We are the servant poor - servant class citizen

Earn a degree that doesn't mean shit
Bite down hard at the corporate bit
Hope for a break to rise from the pack
Knowing full well the deck is stacked
Stacked!

We are the working class - servant class citizen
We are the servant poor - servant class citizen
We are the working class - servant class citizen
We are the servant poor - servant class citizen

We are the servant class
We are the servant class
We are the servant class
