(I have a dream) Regardless of my point of view My barcode reads the same What's the point in conforming When slavery is the game We are not right in having nothing to say cos silence is the last power we have what should I do? D.E.M.E.R.I.T.

Why the fuck am I loyal to you. We don't wanna be your victim of greed. Sick of you, no future for us. How many people die in famine. No way. No control. Poverty makes us strong. No way. No control. We can carry on. Send me to work, send me to war. Send me to waste my life for you. Hate for you, no future for us. We are just bastards of the nation. No way. No control. Poverty makes us strong. No way. No control. We can carry on. So fuck your pretty thoughts. We don't care about your perfect plans. So fuck your pretty thoughts. We still have rebel attitude. We don't wanna live for you!!!

BYE BYE MY COUNTRY. BYE BYE MY COUNTRY. I can decide. I refuse to stand here I was born free And you should refuse to die for them... BYE BYE! BYE BYE! BYE BYE! BYE BYE! BYE BYE MY COUNTRY

Live or die What to live for, what to die for. Live or die What to live for, what to die for. Nobody changes time, And you have the right to choose your own life. Your life! If you lose your faith cause you fear death. You lose your life. Don't cheat your own life Life won't wait. Death can wait Live or die What to live for, what to die for. Live or die What to live for, what to die for. Nobody changes time, And you have the right to choose your own life. Your life! If you lose your faith cause you fear death. You lose your life. Don't cheat your own life Life won't wait. Death can wait We won't stop screaming. While you become a machine laboring for others, We are still bleeding for freedom Live or die Don't cheat your own life Death can wait, Life won't wait. Live or die

Walking alone with my shadow at night. I am lost among those wonderful stars. Like the bird, cant find the way. I'm a lonely boy. I saw the planes, flying far away. Which one lands in my hometown. Like the bird, cant find the way . In the lonely sky . BEIJING's not my home. BEIJING's not my home. Oh mama,mama. Tell me where can I sleep tonight. Walking alone with my shadow at night. I am lost among those wonderful stars. Like the bird, cant find the way. I'm a lonely boy. I saw the planes, flying far away. Which one lands in my hometown. Like the bird, cant find the way . In the lonely sky . BEIJING's not my home. BEIJING's not my home. Oh mama,mama. Tell me where can I sleep tonight. BEIJING's not my home. BEIJING's not my home. Oh mama,mama. Tell me where can I sleep tonight.

Sign up and die today Is what the slogans should say Live by the sword die by the sword March off and earn your place Rotting dead like the rest in the earth Live by the sword die by the sword Violence and control maintained By greed they kill we pay the bills Violence and control maintained By greed they kill we pay the bills The World has become a battle field Games for the rich death for the poor The World has become a battle field

Let's have a party in an abandon house No more sadness,no more tears We're gonna stand up for our freedom Let's have a drink,on a rainy summer night Ghetto for me ghetto for you We're gonna stand up for our freedom (2003年的夏天,我们来到了这个位于北京东部地方,这里偏僻而且落后,但这里却是穷人和喜欢吉他的孩子的天堂) T Z boy T Z girl It's our time our generation (我们到破旧的工厂去捡古怪的家具,到废品站去买漂亮的衣服,在路边喝着燕京啤酒,在租来的房子里听着喜欢的音乐) 这是我们的乌托邦,没有谎言、虚伪、自私与伪装,这首歌我们一起来唱 Sing for friendship,sing for youth!

An apple a day won't keep the assholes away I chose to ignore my father whenever he'd say That I better perform in the company way Now I fell off the grid cause I don't wanna pay Fuck the schemers! I'm sick of it! Fuck the schemers! I'm sick of it! Fuck the schemers! I'm sick of it! Fuck the schemers! I'm sick of it! My biggest problem today Is the lies that surround me If I want to stay on my feet My only option is isolation Fuck the schemers I'm sick of it Fuck the schemers I'm sick of it

The newspaper never speak the truth That people were killed in an accident Will they be reborn like the bible says You need to find the truth and the way Because there is fear inside this place Wake up from your dream Voice of the people We can't find the reason

about

Formed in Qingdao in 2004, and having moved to Beijing the following
year to be closer to the center of the Chinese music scene, Demerit
is widely recognized as the best street punk band in China. They play
blazing sets with a ferocious energy that masks the craftsmanship of their music until, during their increasingly popular acoustic shows, it becomes obvious that these guys also write great songs. Unlike a lot of punks, their musical tastes are also fairly wide-ranging, with band members regular attendees, for example, at concerts by Mafeisan, the anarchic wild men of Beijing noise. Their debut “Never say die” was released in mid 2006.

Originally a quartet (vocals, guitar, bass and percussion), the band
recently added a second guitar to fill out their sound and to allow more
guitar experimentation. The result is a very rich, open sound that, while
remaining firmly within the fast-paced tradition of angry street punk, is
capable of beautiful chords and haunting melodies. Not just musicians,
Demerit takes the rebellious spirit of punk very seriously, and they have
cooperated widely with foreign bands touring China as well as with
young new Chinese bands just starting out. They have also planted the
flag of Chinese punk throughout the country during their wide-ranging
tours.

For many of the younger punks they are seen as leaders and guides, but they are clearly at their best when they are on stage, ripping through
their songs while front man Liyang snarls out his lyrics. In September
of 2007 Public Enemy’s bassist and producer Brian Hardgroove, one
of their most hard-core fans, came to China to record their new CD,
returning again in January to finish the recording and to mix and master
the final result. Now with a high quality recording to their name they are
prepared to take on not just all of China but also the world.
