lyrics

17 children slaughtered back on april 19th, '93
PCA (Posse Comitatus Act) ignored, another crimson brick on the road to tryranny
government thugs--these are the very ones we're supposed to trust with the guns
it's high time to arm ourselves to the teeth and put the Gestapo on the run

i hope the feds in the agencies will stop to think from time to time
that we've got 300 million guns to make the punishment fit their crime
they could blacken the horizon, but in a shooting war
there's a bunch of us ready to protect ourselves and to balance out the score

CS gas at point blank range--hiding behind the flag
a shaped charge to finish the job--hiding behind the flag
women and children blown to pulp--hiding behind the flag
BATF killing kids in a church--hiding behind the flag

i hold true to the fact that if i see
the illegal use of deadly force
i don't care what he's wearing, i'm prepared
to put a round in the offender's head
and i don't care who he works for
it's a damn crying shame there weren't
a bunch of us around back in '93
to surround you bastards and take you down

about

YOU'RE FIRED Boston, Massachusetts

In early 2002, AxCx, PROCLAMATION, & KEVORKIAN'S ANGELS alumni joined forces in YOU'RE FIRED, a fast, raw HC band. We played sporadic live shows, and RSR released our "Warning" EP.

We wrote other songs, but Seth died unexpectedly in 2011. With the help of Seth's long-time collaborator Paulie, we recorded the songs properly as a farewell to our fallen brother. Thus ends the story of YOU'RE FIRED.
