about

Our first full length album. Some of these songs were written by the guys while they were still in high school. A lot of these songs made us local Riverside legends and we even got some radio play out of Internet Girl.
The cover art was adapted from a John Martinez painting. The physical copy of our CD went out of print years ago, but its lived on digitally for years on streaming and download services.

Funny story about the lineup for this album: There's a ton of dudes credited on this album and for the most part that's what we played with live. Adam was living in Fresno at the time and we were recording outside of LA in South Gate, Ca so he only played with us when he was in town. But Nick, our drummer, joined the band literally days before recording. He was our back up drummer because you need a back up drummer when your primary drummer is 16 and has a controlling mom. We had two big shows the weekend before recording, one at the Showcase Theatre in Corona, Ca and the other at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, Ca. Bobby told us last minute that his mom wouldn't let him go to the shows for some reason. This was a regular problem, so in steps the hero of the day, Nick, to play the shows for us. It was when we were practicing for those shows that we decided that Bobby had to go and that Nick was our man. He was our drummer for the duration of the band's life.

So with Nick being the new drummer there are a couple of things with some of the songs. First of all, Sin Stick and Darkest Thoughts are way too fast! Nick played in a Punk Rock band called Knock Out before joining our band, but he was never really a punk rock drummer, so when it came to playing it he never really had the right tempo and always played way too fast. While the rhythm section was recording we thought it sounded great and it was fun ti play, but of course when it came to laying down the vocals it kind of made it difficult for Josh and James, which I feel is pretty apparent on the album.

Anyway, that's enough of my yammering. Enjoy the show!

-Anthony Rondina (Bass Guitarist)

Oh, I've also included the skits from the physical version of the album that have never been release digitally. Don't expect much, most of these feature Josh and James acting out exaggerated versions of true stories they experienced growing up together. They range from 6 seconds to about a minute.

about

The Guilty Parties Riverside, California

We were a ska band out of Riverside, California. Most of the guys met in high school band and decided they would be local legends. I'd say we did a pretty good job of it.

Track Name: Jeff's Song
Mommy, I dont want to go to church
They treat me like shit and they dont let me tell the truth
can i just stay home today
i dont want to give up everything just to pray
They march us directly to our fate
to fight the devil they told us to hate
parents support their every move
cuz their kid's mind is what they have to lose

oh oh, we let so many things take our minds
oh oh, can i get an amen
oh oh, you wont see me fighting on the front line
is the point of life just to simply stay alive?

"Whatd you learn in church today?"
i learned youll burn if you dont think our way
I learned that we're nothing but sheep
we stay within our leaders shortest reach
and its so wrong to be gay
I learned that being lefty is the wrong way
and we dont have any voice about it
mindless servants of such rules that need not be
Track Name: My You've changed
My You've Changed

Girl I see you standin over there, if youre lucky i might talk to you
would you like to go out sometime or even better marry me now
your name sounds familiar to me "i know you you dont recognize me?"
Oh my goodness it cant be, when did you start gettin so fine?
"you used to always throw things and make fun of me"
i swear ive changed i was just tryin to be funny
I'll do anything that you want me to do "i like your band but i dont like you"

chorus: my youve changed, from when i knew you back in the day
Im sorry i called you fat, understand it was in 8th grade. now can we go on a date?

I used to be your biggest crush, what happened to the two of us
you used to call me everyday "you hung up and said i was gay"
i couldnt help if you were ugly, with stringy hair and yellow buck teeth
your overalls were sick and holey now you look like angelina joli, yeah
you told me i was rude and selfish, how you liked me and i hated you
but ive changed, and im a different person now

chorus

bridge: is there anything i can do to make you like me, anything i can do to leave the past alone, i cant take away the fact you were a fatty, or makin it up noooooo

What you gotta understand is you would have done just what i did
"look at you, youre not all that now, you have changed and i dont like you"
would you even go out one time? "youre the last thing that's on my mind" this happens almost everytime now but i guess thats just the way things turn out

chorus
Track Name: Internet Girl
ASL you dont know me, but do you wanna chat said do you wanna chat with me
Well I cant find no one else so looks like your stuck, said looks like your stuck with me

do you have a picture,
can i see it before we talk tonight
soon as i saw it
i knew that you were my type

shes so fine cant wait to meet her
as pretty as a flower, can i take your petals off

called me up and we made a date,
I'll meet you at the show, meet you at the show at 8
she said i would spot her in a crowd cuz shes
wearing yellow sock, wearing yellow sock with lace
but when i got there, i knew that something wasnt right
cuz soon as i saw her, i wanted to run away

she was so fine until i met her
as pretty as a flower, with the petals ripped off

called me 80 times the next day
asked me where i was
went to the store, my school, and synagogue
i swear there she was
followed me to the bathroom
pulled up her skirt and said
"if you wont clean my pipe then
at least let me polish your head"
shit brown eyes, skin just like an elephant
hair like a wooly mammoth
on the shoulders of a body with a stick figure
shall i proceed? She got a tiny forehead with a big as jaw
you could spot the broad way from jamaica
everywhere i go i see her face
pulled out my knife told that bitch to get away

she was so fine until i met her
as pretty as a flower, with the petals ripped off
Track Name: Fight Dancer
We thought you were a.........friend!
I could never make out what you were tryin to do
I know you think you're real tight but you're not so cool
I never thought about it but you always had something rude to do to people, you wont stop
I never though about it but youll never be my friend again and everytime you talk about it
youll get dropped

chorus: you stabbed my back

i never really liked you now i never will
you need to stop fakin cuz we know youre not for real
you wanna resolve it but you dont know how cuz you dont know what you do wrong anyways
we'll get you back, cuz we're not gonna take it anymore, ever cuz you will pay

chorus

now you wanna talk shit, speak on shit you dont know shit about, bitch read my lips
come up to me in person and get fucked up, add to the verse and im runnin a muck
im like a freight train comin at you with full steam, youre tied on the tracks and youre hollerin not screamin, speak on it again, cuz ya just dont know, one more thing cuz im about to explode............

chorus (background: im about to explode on ya cuz ya dont know what you do, makin it up, but you know we're not stupid, explode any given time of day......youre gonna pay)
Track Name: Room Service (Kobe's Song)
I live in a perfect world
and i have a perfect life
and you dont have to tell me twice
that i have the perfect girl...

but that wont stop me!
from screwing the room service girl
im screwing the room service girl
screwing the room service girl

I drive a really cool car
escalade sitting on 24's
but im not satisfied with my wife
i'd rather have some stupid whore

but that wont stop me!
from screwing the room service girl
im screwing the room service girl
screwing the room service girl
Track Name: German Chocolate
Dont walk a way i know you dont wanna hear it
when im talkin wont you listen to me
weve dealt with this for way too long
and i think its time you let us be
you shave your head to fit in
you wear a shirt that says skin
you think that really cool
i think you look like a fool
you know what youre showin me
how stupid racists can be
why dont you stick a gun up to your head

you hate me because im not like you
you dont like black...you dont like jews
why cant we all learn to love eachother
maybe you learned it from your father and your mother
well heres a little piece of sound advice
that your buddy hitler found quite nice
try it out when your layin in your bed
why dont you stick a gun up to your head
Track Name: Sloot
You give in; you keep on giving it up
You’re like a giving tree giving up
You want to run around?
Go ahead be my guest
But you’re never allowed in my house for any request
You give in; you keep on giving it up
You’re like a giving tree giving up
You want to run around?
Go ahead be my guest
But you’re never allowed in my house unless you give it a rest
Track Name: Darkest Thoughts
late at night when youre trying to sleep, its takin over you like an evil dream
thinkin about it more drives you insane, all you think you can do is scream
thoughts into actions speak your name, make a reality of what you dream
out upon me, out upon you, you cant see what youre goin through
does it ever take toll on you? no surprise what youre gonna do
let the darkness slip into your soul, and you cant control

chrous: all my darkest thoughts take control of me tonight
what i will admit is nothing's gonna make it right

all you can think of and all you see, is the pain that you go through daily
unbreakable continuous footsteps, bloodflow quick heart pounds in your chest
walkin in the middle of the street, dont even hear the sound of your feet
dont know why you dont stop this madness collect the sould from the ones you keep
evilest minds (oi oi) stoppin you (oi oi) breakin rules (oi oi) all this darkness takes control of you

chorus
Track Name: The Finale (Featuring Andrea Ledesma)
You told me I have changed, but when will yours come?
(But babe, I’m doing the best that I—)
Don’t you talk ‘til I’m done.
(Sorry)
Don’t think you can just walk on my set and be the star
Lose your friends and we’ll talk

Here I am, in front of this fork in the road
(You can have me but James has to go)
It’s not right for me to have to choose
(Which one do you like more?)
(It’s up to you)

There’s something you should know about this girl
(You can just stop it, you’re jealous I know)
She’ll treat you real nice, but she’ll get around the wolrd
(She told me that she’s never leave me side)

Here I am, in front of this fork in the road
(You can have me but James has to go)
It’s not right for me to have to choose
(Which one do you like more?)
(It’s up to you)
(Which one do you like more?)
(It’s up to you)
(Which one do you like more?)
(It’s up to you)
(Which one do you like more?)
(It’s up to you)
Track Name: Another Case
A kid afraid of the dark
That saw images of melting and refuge in the shadows
Haunting the halls of my mind
Scattered thoughts of what is that and what is…
Don’t clock out/Lose your mind
No way out /Close your eyes
Don’t clock out /Over time
Close your eyes/Black night

A shot in the dark, a broken valve to let my water flow free
A shot in the dark is all we have, follow me

A kid afraid of the dark
Not another time, rolling off of the mind
A kid—decomposed the first line, the primitive
See what’s inside the mind of a guilt trip
Can’t see nothing until you don’t think, it’s not the way it works
Don’t want to blink, no escape from reality because everything that’s real is in your mind
Don’t want to deal with idealism is what you make of it, illegit
Nervousness through you veins, nerves transmit
Can I take a minute? I gotta cool my shit down
Every time I get worked up I head the same sound

A shot in the dark, a broken valve to let my water flow free
A shot in the dark is all we have, follow me

We’re another case of the criminal and the mobile effects
With a complex of the emotional aspect
Picking lines in fences and material hex
We write the checks, we write the checks next
The regression of why you’re next with the streaming and calling collect
Following orders—exempt right from the start
With taxation with representation raising the tides of nations
Chasing the wars with checks and thinking it’s right
Despite of what they think I’m a roughneck at times pushing through in the background, silent as a mime
Power is a well from which they drink out, certain they get too drunk and lose their minds
Break the lines, break the barriers, the crowds
I faked the battles and the walls came down
I faked the battles and the walls came down
I faked the battles, now break the walls down
Track Name: Justice
I’m working on a big case tonight, so please don’t bother me
If they come to question you, I didn’t tell you a thing
Because you know, I’m gonna have to kill you
When we got together baby, I tried to warn you soon
But you said you didn’t care and smothered me with poon
Now you know there’s nothing more we can do

Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be…

They noticed what I said, watched my every move well
They know you talk too much, I promise I didn’t tell
Now they know that you know too much
Now it’s all complete they set the date tonight
Let’s go, on your feet, I didn’t put up a fight
Put her on a rack, shot her in the back, typical procedure of a government attack

Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be…

She took off her vest and threw it in my face
Said she was scared to death, now to Mexico in rags
Because you know they’re gonna come for me (hey hey hey)
Sitting on the beach sipping Courvoisier
Water at our feet, break in the new day
Cause you know justice will be served!

Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be…
Justice will be served!
Track Name: Sin Stick
why cant you just let us be quit guilty parties join usc
everything out of your mouths are programmed but i just dont give a damn
everything in your mind's put in you didnt learn it you were taught by him
dont waste your breath tryin to change me look at yourself, problems you'll see
brainwashed followers, thinks your own thoughts, talk and walk like him you'll get yourself caught
if youre talkin to me you know im not listenin keep your mouth shut no matter what you do we're dissin him
don't be bitter because you're not like us, break in the middle of class and just cuss
stop with your talkin about what he says, i dont really care what you got to say anyway

Chorus: no talking, sit up straight, no breathing, give us a break

As for the parents of the kids you raised Im lookin at you with awe, you should be ashamed
then you got the nerve to tell me what to do sick of your lies sick of all you put us through
sit in the front of the bus with your hands crossed, watch the fake rules you made get tossed
stop tryin to tell us, stop makin us stop talkin we mock your authority, you have none, stop!
dont make such a big deal about it, we make a mistkae, youre over there shouting
and when we try to make some noise "go back there and watch those boys"
is it so bad we cant have fun? your kid's gettin beat up by someone's son
always blame us for things we dont do, the usually suspects the GP crew

chorus

now it comes down to the king, the punk himself, 'Mr. Im so mean'
"come to the gig and represent" if we go you treat us like shit because we went
we're so sick of all you do, fightin with the kids and fightin with you
you say we waste our talent with no praise, look at you, low paid teacher with no raise
youre racist but youre a punk to your race, we dont even say good things to your face
datin a highschool student, please. Idiot with bipolar disease
makin up lies that end up changed, tell us one thing then rearrange
always blame us for things we dont do, same suspects, the GP crew
Track Name: Bad Day
It all started on the perfect day
The sun was shining things were going my way
I had no idea what was going to begin
I just thought as the waves rolled in

Later on when I was walking home
I saw you outside my house on the phone
when I got to the door this is what you said:
"It's over, have a nice day."

You Walked Away I tried to ask you "Why?"
You simply smiled as you said "Goodbye."
I was so confused that I sat on the ground
That's when my life turned up-side down
Then it hit me, I was late for work
I started driving and I made a wrong turn
Four Red Lights and one flat tire
I got to work and my boss said "You're Fired."

Chorus: It's Just a part of my...
It's Just a part of my...
It's Just a part of my...
It's just a part of my Bad Day

The Walk home was oh so far
All because I locked the keys in my car
Then I got home, turned on he TV
I couldn't beleive this was happening to me
Millions dying and the world is at war
I knew I just couldn't take much more
We'll grow up and we'll learn how to kill
They say things will change, but I know they never will

Chorus
