about

Angrier, weirder and ultimately the same, "These Songs Hate You" comes straight from a Belmullet bedroom into your ears with no middle man to polish it up and make it suitable for your consumption.


=Reviews=

"This album is what might happen if Jad Fair and John Shuttleworth had a lovechild and locked him in their basement." Filthy Minky

"Gone is the hyper stylisation of music, forget pretty boys singing other people’s lyrics and selling perfume with their faces on, this is balls out do what the heck you want and do it like no one is watching punk." Skeplunk

"The Crytearions keep the momentum going with bursts of 2 minute or under buzz saw guitar and drum machine bangers. It never lets up, and I want to know more about this guy." Lo-Pie

"This is the shit, the stuff that gets the vans flipped over, crowds at concerts stage diving and reviewers drooling while banging their heads until a feeling of euphoria satisfies us all." Yeah I Know It Sucks

"It’s interesting to note that, despite the fact that this sucker could annihilate those not ready for a jolt, these relatively short tracks are deceptively minimalistic. Though the guitar and voice parts are frequently layered, only guitar, drums, and vocals are heard here. Monaghan does his darnedest to ensure the album is fun to listen to..." Bandjack

Track Name: Dumb Us Down
They play with our emotions so we buy their promotions
We buy their promotions because they play with our emotions
If you're feeling free don't get any notions
We can't live without their potions

Who's your favourite celebrity?
Worship them all, they're Godly
Buy what they buy and wear what they wear
If you need a transplant you can get one for your hair

Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down

Can you count to a one, two, three?
With a machine it's easy
Carry it with you everywhere that you go
There's never nothing that you won't know
Then you realise that it's part of their plan
Try to fuck up our attention span
Then they'll start farming us like cows
How how? How how?

They're trying to dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Dumb us down
They're probably cutting us down
Dumb us down
They're probably putting us down
Dumb us down
Yeah dumb us down
Dumb us down try to get us down
Get us down
They're probably culling us down
Dumb us down
They're trying to dumb us down
Track Name: Is Ray Ill?
There's something wrong with Ray he's messing with his brother
Nobody cares not even their mother
He's spitting at him, causing him bother
No-one bats an eyelid not even their father
You give him an inch and he takes a mile
Does it all with a very coy smile
Whispering insults under his breath
Ray is starving his brother to death

Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?

Fuck the metaphor it's a waste of time
People are dying in Palestine
But don't say a word to upset the beast
Because the U.S need their foothold in the Middle East
There's no point in having this debate
There's always going to be a Zionist state
But when you mix religion with politics
You always get the same bitches and dicks
Arguing about God
Arguing about soil
Then you realise it's all about oil
Deserts will burn
Oceans will boil
Our Ray is getting awfully spoiled

Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?
I think he is
I think he is
I think he is
Is Ray ill?
Track Name: The President of Costa Rica
The President of Costa Rica came walking in
Took off his hat, pulled up a chair and bought a pint of gin
Everybody gathered around him and they heard him say
Something awfully peculiar in a peculiar way
He say;
He say;

"I don't care what you know or what you think
If I did that then I would shrink
I need to be the perfect President
We need to make a perfect government
We need to focus on community
Don't bother with big companies
If we all live economically
We could all live off of things in the sea
And every one would be happy
I can make this a reality
So if you like my crazy philosophies
Then come on and dance with me
'cause I'm the president of Costa Rica
I'm the president of Costa Rica."
Track Name: Pringles
You can climb an apple tree
Get your breakfast for free
Take a look on the ground
Find your dinner all around
But instead go into the store
Buy something and buy some more
Where does all your money go?
Businesses like Montsanto
Or as the French say ; "Monde sans toi"
Earth is dying la la la
Let's all dance take off your draws

Hail to the system yeah but this is not how it's supposed to be
When they cut down the rainforests what the fuck are we supposed to eat?

S.O.S oh S.O.S
Esso Esso Esso Esso
S.O.S oh S.O.S
Esso Esso Esso Esso

Hail to the system yeah but this is not how it's supposed to be
Hail to the system yeah thank you for looking after me
Track Name: Fit In
Breakdown
Horror face
We won't ever fit in to this place
Self combust
In outer space
We won't ever want all of your ways
Shut your hole
It's in our fate
We won't live life just for your sake

We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down

You're a bomb
I'm some planes
Let's blow it up and make them all faint
Consumed
Passive rape
Don't push over despite what you think

We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down

Chain us down
Medicate
We won't ever fit in to your space
Starve us out? Push us down?
We're the hardest bastards in this town!

We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
We won't ever back down
Track Name: Jerry Was A Taxidermist
Jerry was a taxidermist in the U.S.A
Then the navy seals came and sailed him away
Then he was a taxidermist up in Greenland
He wondered why all of the ice had turned to land
Then he was a taxidermist over in UK
Scotland weren't there and the Welsh they ran away
Then he was a taxidermist in Australia
He wondered why it looked just like America
Then he was a taxidermist over in Ukraine
Everything was peachy until the Russians came
Then he was a taxidermist down in the Maldives
Everything was sinking so they lived up in the trees
Then he was a taxidermist for the Head of State
She wasn't very friendly but she paid an honest rate
Then he was a taxidermist out in Mexico
The cartels held him hostage and they wouldn't let him go
Until they did and then he did some taxidermy in Peru
Took some Ayahuasca and he turned into you
Jerry was a taxidermist all of his life
He even met a taxidermist and made her his wife
Then he wrote a screenplay but it didn't do too good
Critics said his message was misunderstood
He said "I was a taxidermist all over the world and the only thing I've learned is that it's fun to stuff a bird."
Track Name: The 7 Habits Of Highly Defective People
Turning your back to me
It's really rude
What is it I have done?
Did I eat your food?
What is success to you?
Lots of cash
What is success to me?
Lots of hash

I don't know what I'm supposed to be
But I love myself and my family
So don't ever try to bring me down
Because I love this life and I love this sound it goes like

The best person I could be
Is very swell
But progress and apathy
They don't mix well
So much stuff I need
Right online
I should buy a degree
But I don't even have time

I don't know what I'm supposed to be
But I love myself and my family
So next time you try to bring me down
Just know I love this life and I love this sound it goes like
Track Name: No Escaping
If you go to where there's a road and there's nobody around
You can take a turn and then you won't be found
Bring a couple pumpkins seeds
Some biodiesel and some magazines
Set up camp and take it slow
The wilderness is hard you know
But reinvent yourself and bring some friends
You never know you might start a trend
You'll have it all
The sweet honey bee
Oh shit no we're on government property
And we don't have everything we need because we need a patent for this seed!
The cities are like lobster pots
We need fresh air or have you forgot?
There's nothing in the country side
Nothing to do and nowhere to hide
And humans are pesticide
Do I want to be one? I can't decide!

There's no escaping them
There's no escaping them
There's no escaping them
Track Name: This Is Not A Conspiracy
You can
Do anything that you like
Just so long no-one's touching your psyche
Influenced by
Undisputable source
Mind invasion
Don't need to use force

Seven billion
People alive
Seems like we've outgrown our hive
It's very subtle
The way that they say
There's only going to be five billion one day
And what will they do
When we get down to five?
Only keep the richest alive

This is not a conspiracy
They're after you and me
I'm not paranoid
All I see is a massive fucking void
Between the rulers of the nations
And the global populations
Oh they're testing my frustrations

Don't believe me
I'm a depressed man
I transfer all my anger so you might understand
What I think, think to be true
Calm down son no-one's after you

This is not a conspiracy
They're after you and me
I'm not paranoid
All I see is a massive fucking void
Between the rulers of the nations
And the global populations
Oh they're testing my frustrations
Track Name: I Don't Want To Know What I Know
Look away look away
You'll destroy your vision
Look away or you'll have a fit
Evil lives evil lives
Under one condition
All it asks is that you nurture it

I don't want to know
I don't want to know
I don't want to know what I know what I know no no no

We've evolved we've evolved
Into something fishy
Merging with technology
When it's done they'll have won and it won't be natural
In our minds they'll have the driver's seat
They will move us around and we won't even know it
What they speak we won't understand
We will live we will live
Just for their progression
As they pillage all our land

I don't want to know
I don't want to know
I don't want to know what I know what I know no no no
