about

The Crazy Never Die Los Angeles, California

The bands music and lyrics are meant to entertain but also inspire thought and provoke questions. Therefore they found it suitable to take they’re name from an author with similar aspirations, Hunter S. Thompson, who once said, “Some may never live but the crazy never die.” ... more

Track Name: Mad
Barrel along eyes wide
The needle buried deep
My mind is free and clear
I sink back into the seat

Then the world decides to turn on me
With a thousand bright red eyes
A mass of metal, glass, and broken dreams
My God, why?

(chorus)
This has gone too far, there's no purpose here
Don't it make you mad, they are everywhere
Like a growing swarm, an endless plague
This has gone too far, beware the human race

The heat is building up
This borders on absurd
The tension is building up
I feel the fear of the herd

Sacrifice your time for the useless and corrupt
A river of mindless flesh and metal, it's all too much

(chorus)

And if I came breathing fire, toting guns
If I shot all I could see it still wouldn't be enough
Because there is more than you imagine there could be
The one-minded mass has grown to a staggering degree
Just be calm just relax we're almost done
Here we are at the end what's the cause… there is none

(chorus)
Track Name: Robots Killing Robots
Robots Killing Robots

It's all so scary
Tiny square machines
On a sideways ladder
It's only dirt we see
We control it all
We control it all
Or it just might be the other way around

Just look with open eyes
How far can you see
Feel safe behind your lies
Afraid to be free

Like the stains in your driveway
You will never be clean
You're laying in the highway
To see the bright lights gleam
We control it all
We control it all
Or it just might be the other way around

Just look with open eyes
How far can you see
Feel safe behind your lies
Afraid to be free
And you know you're hypnotized
You're happy just to be
Just sit back and watch it die
The truth and the free

Robots killing robots

(chorus)
Track Name: Another Beast; The Difference Between Man and Animal and Why We Are Still Savages
My plate is full but I want more
So I leave the sympathy at the door
What am I but another beast
What am I but another beast
I feel the weight of my massive crown
And these gold chains they keep me down
What am I but another beast that feeds

No way, no way
I get the feeling that we're running away
Away from reality

With no money I make no sound
While atop their mansions they're awfully loud
Who am I but the choice I make
Just trying to live, just another beast
Fat and heavy they keep us down
Theres no fighting with them pound for pound
What am I but another beast that feeds

No way, no way
I get the feeling that we're running away
Away from reality
I think its time for us to turn and face the day
And if we don't like what we see
Then it's time for a change

We won't stop until it's all for one
There's no turning back, it's just begun
What am I but another beast that feeds
Track Name: The Inheritance
With a careful voice you state your plea
The arrogance, you say
You raped the world out of need
Don't you lie to me
Excuses are sickness, I don't care anymore
I wanna make you pay for what you've done

We never wanted to be
Revolutionaries
We didn't wanna save the world
You just left it this way

I'm not a savior, you're not my maker
I'm not your keeper, you're not my leader

You tell us all it's just a mistake
The genocide that you profit from
You disgusting waste of human life
You're useless, it's your mess that you gave to us
Now we're left to fix what you've done

We never wanted to be
Revolutionaries
We didn't wanna save the world
You just left it this way

I'm not a savior, you're not my maker
I'm not your keeper, you're not my leader

Yeah… fuck you
Track Name: Financing Designer Addiction
Are you feeling tired, do you need a nap
How about a pill that will bring back
The youth that you lost
And other things you want
Are you not one of the pretty ones
Are you not quite thin enough
This pill will peel fat off
And other things you want

(chorus)
Want a better you, you just call us
Wanna live your dreams, it is all just
One pill away
One pill away

May cause misery
Are you feeling unhappy
Do you want the world to go away
This pill kills bad thoughts
Oh, wait… maybe not

(chorus)

Better living through chemistry
Or another ploy to get your money
What's your desire

(chorus)
Track Name: Human
Common ground never seemed so weak
Alright, all right
Hungry, sick, we fight and feed
Egos leading the way

Steeped in greed we eat the weak
Vicious, senseless
I'll do for you what's good for me
If you want, then you will pay

I don't see your way

The more you get the more you want
always, all ways
Like a fat kid with a lollipop
Waving it in my face

Common good never seemed so weak
alright, all right
I'll do for you what's good for me
It's just the human way
A human way
Track Name: The Greed
Like a virus spored and spread
An infection buried deep within
And we don't care anymore

Like a war we already lost
The sick ones out number us
And we don't care anymore

Like a voice in the back of your head
Like a god that makes you kill for him
You lost control

Their tables heavy and full
Do you like the crumbs they're giving you
Is it not enough?

Right of people acts of pigs
Acts of pigs, thievery is just good business
And the worst begins

Blind-minded bought and sold
We sit here in a stranglehold
Or we get up and fight

Like our lives in their hands
It's just a currency for them to spend
Humility can save us all
