- if you live in the US send yr mail address to receive posterz & stickerz.
- if you catch us on tour we can screenprint your shirts anywhere that can facilitate it.
- if you want to arrange a show we do NOT play age restrictive shows in Cincinnati and prefer this on tour as well.

Thanx to those in Cincinnati who truly dedicate their energy to living against comfortable norms, in order to vehemently combat oppression and continuously redefine/renew cultures like "punk" in current times. Thanx beyond mere words to those on this Earth who risk their only lives, sometimes at the ultimate sacrifice of living outside cages, for nothing but the liberation of other creatures or the world we must share to survive. Decide Today is only an art project or vehicle for practical information at best, but through its aid in above ground campaigns and education, the potential to ignite passion for actualizing the abolition of oppression must be our most sincere desire. Anarchy for 513!

Track Name: DON'T TALK TO COPS
(calling upon my community, not the police...)
once I was robbed, beat down bad by stick-up kids
but even worse was how I was treated when I went to the police
reacting with suspicion when I thought I was the victim
racist sexist bullies with no intent to protect me
kNOw!!!

a knight of justice with mob mentality
yeah the real thugs in blue are the police around me
I deny that fascist prowler of the poor
who rejects that we are all the same at our core

you can't win the fight with a fucking cop
pulling a gun won't make them stop
the best form of attack is to refuse that thug
just turn your fucking back
I'm not saying to deny the reality
just that copkiller fantasy
don't talk to cops, don't play their games
this war we can win if we use our brains

OK the first thing you say is "am I free to go?"
and no shit with a power trip they will probably tell you "NO"
but when they talk to you just say "I'm remaining silent"
and if they search you remember say "you do NOT have my consent"
kNOw!!!

fear through physical confrontation
you're kept in line, on your dime, forced assimilation
real freedom is taking charge of your situation
whereas the cops just grip the town with brute intimidation

REAL PUNX DON'T TALK TO COPS
there are alternative solutions to the problems we got

fucking with little kids for skating instead of rotting away all day online
down the block you hear gunshots, meanwhile arrested for painting on a wall?!
there are a few cops with good intentions on our streets of course
but they'll be stuck within the ranks of goons until they quit the force
kNOw!!!

knight of justice with a chokehold on society
yeah the real thugs in blue are these fucking cops around me
I deny! we never see eye to eye
I DENY!!! no killer with a badge and a gun is part of my life

REAL PUNX DON'T TALK TO COPS
there are alternative solutions to the problems we got

henchmen of a class system, not to demonize but just to observe the reality
administrators of oppression, armed guards for the aristocracy
but this is not another song about juvenile fantasies of "killing pigs"
this is a call for common sense and an affirmation to step back and think

engage responsibility, call upon your community
not the false aid of a violent gang AKA the police

(911 is a joke, big ups to copwatch, big ups to security culture, know your rights, in solidarity...)

"...am I being detained or am I free to go?"
"I am remaining silent."
"I do not consent to a search."
"I want to speak to a lawyer."
Track Name: BULLETBELT
(this song is called Bulletbelt ...it goes out to every fucking fashion punk who ever put you down just for being you)

"making punk a threat again" How?
by popularizing alienation and alcoholism? NO!
(get up, get up, get up... I'll fight it forever...)
I want more than a pose or fake formula rage
let punk be liberation not a miserable cage
a life philosophy based on living your own way
the anti-dogma! you define The Shit Punx Hate!!!

I saw a young kid ridiculed because he wouldn't drink a beer
and he had no studded uniform so I could sense their fear
and I used to say "righteous" instead of saying "cool"
but now I'm back to "RADICAL" so
FUCK YOU DOGMA PUNX AND YOUR NARROW-MINDED RULES
kNOw you don't have to drink to be a real punk
there's no authority in alcohol despite what they might say
so never say you're sorry if you don't want to be drunk
and know that they are cowards if they reject your different ways
everyone can have their fun however they want right?
so don't assume your way is best and don't pretend you can't hear my voice
you can numb your jaded head or accomplish awesome things instead
the value of punk is that autonomous choice RIGHT!!!
(and I am out for that autonomous choice...)

I saw another kid confused by "peace punks" wearing bullet belts
and every implement of atrocity while they claim to detest war
yeah I used to say "righteous" instead of saying "cool"
but now I'm back to "RADICAL" so DOGMA PUNX FUCK YOU!
bullets are more than toys in a world beyond these cliques
they're made to kill in this real world
INSPIRE FEAR! IMPERIAL FORCE!
wearing only images of what you supposedly hate
what's the average observer going to assume you endorse?

why would you pressure people with such a de-fanging fashion?
and they're "making punk a threat again" HOW?
by popularizing alienation and alcoholism...
I want more than a pose or fake formula rage
let punk be liberation not a miserable cage
a life philosophy based on living your own way
the anti-dogma! you define The Shit Punx Hate
