    For the discerning collector. We who continue to collect, LOVE complete discographies on our shelves, so Vindicator decided to do a small run of CDs for this demo. Like "South Amherst Thrash" before it, it's limited to one hundred copies and includes the bonus track "Guardian of the Blind". A track that predates "There Will Be Blood", written entirely by Vic Stown as a weird one off power thrash track.

lyrics

Freedom to live
Comes at a price
Nothing is free
Without a knife

Holding you hostage
'Til you break
A world of chains
For freedom’s sake
Pay your dues
Then pay some more
The piper’s banging
On your door

The wolf wears nothing
When you’re poor

Waking up means
Paying tax
Hungry mouths
For broken backs
No reprieve
From slavery
Higher prices
For the free

Priced to survive
Hostage to cost
Rampant inflation
The next holocaust
Widen the gap
Privileged and weak
The cost of your life
Is the life of the meek

Better lives
Are often sought
The rainbow’s end
Is often bought

Pockets full
Of emptiness
Kiss the feet
Of impotence
Politicians
take away
Live to spend
Another day

Beg for mercy
With your pay

Working well
While working sick
Work forever
Deal with it
Secretly
We wish for death
Praying they won’t
Tax your breath

Priced to survive
Hostage to cost
Rampant inflation
The next holocaust
Widen the gap
Privileged and weak
The cost of your life
Is the life of the meek

Euphoria
Is out of reach
A distant land
A shorter leash

Try to sustain
Like chewing glass
A pain so long
Forever lasts
Two steps ahead
Then ten behind
The happiness
We cannot find

The struggle for
Some peace of mind

Raise the price
Stay the pay
Blame whatever
Day to day
Bloating corpses
Sick with greed
The cross on which
We all will bleed

Priced to survive
Hostage to cost
Rampant inflation
The next holocaust
Widen the gap
Privileged and weak
The cost of your life
Is the life of the meek

In two thousand five the city would give birth to another bastard of speed and aggression.
