lyrics

TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO SELL OUT
SELLOUT TIME IS HERE
TIME FOR YOU TO COMMIT SUICIDE
TO FURTHER YOUR CAREER
AT FIRST IT MAY SEEM ABHORRENT
YOU'RE TORN IN TWO BY STRIFE
BUT ONCE YOU'VE TAKEN THAT FATAL PLUNGE
IT BECOMES A WAY OF LIFE

NAME YOUR PRICE
FOR THE PRICE MUST BE PAID
NAME YOUR PRICE
NAME YOUR PRICE
SIGN YOUR LIFE AWAY

WOULD YOU DO IT FOR MONEY
AFTER THEY'VE TOLD YOU THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERED
WOULD YOU DO IT FOR HOPE
AFTER YOUR DREAMS HAVE ALL BEEN SHATTERED
WOULD YOU DO IT FOR SHELTER
AFTER THEY'VE THROWN YOU OUT IN THE COLD
WOULD YOU DO IT FOR SALVATION
AFTER THEY'VE TAKEN AWAY YOUR SOUL

NAME YOUR PRICE
FOR THE PRICE HAS TO BE PAID
NAME YOUR PRICE
NAME YOUR PRICE
SIGN YOUR LIFE AWAY

YOU SAY YOU WOULDN'T DO IT FOR MURDER
BUT YOU'VE DONE IT ALL BEFORE
YOU'VE DONE IT FOR BRUTALITY AND RAPE
RACISM AND WAR

DID YOU DO IT FOR
HITLER, STALIN, POL POT, LENIN,
DUVALIER, REAGAN, NORIEGA, BEGIN
THATCHER, BOTHA, SHAMIR, EISENHOWER,
JESUS, RAMA, SATAN, BUDDHA

IF YOU DIDN’T, IT DOESN’T MATTER
YOU DO IT EVERY DAY
SO SIGN YOUR PAYCHECK ON THE DOTTED LINE
AND SIGN YOUR LIFE AWAY

ICONICIDE are a NYC based band whose sound has ranged from sludgy political dirges to blazing fast thrash, from toe tapping street punk to a lethal mix of dub reggae and death metal. Underlying it all has been what spurred frontman Chris (the Antimessiah) to start the band back in 1988: the stripped down, no nonsense, rip out your guts sound of Early 80s New York Hardcore. ... more
