The Saints : Eternally yours 1978



The Saints are an Australian Punk rock band, formed in Brisbane in 1974. They are considered to be one of the first and most influential punk groups. By 1975, contemporaneous with the Ramones, The Saints were employing the fast tempos, raucous vocals and "buzzsaw" guitar that characterised early punk rock. With their first single "(I'm) Stranded", in late 1976, they released a record ahead of better-known punk acts like the Sex Pistols and The Clash. Bob Geldof has been quoted as saying, "Rock music in the Seventies was changed by three bands — the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints".



Eternally Yours is their second album released in 1978 . For their follow up album (with Kuepper and Bailey in the producers chair) the band chose a more bigger R & B driven sound, including the addition of a horn section.

This is one of the best PUNK Albums , my dirty friends

KNOW YOUR PRODUCT


I'm just sitting in my chair when a voice comes on the air
Says "Why don't you try it? You'll feel allright!"
"Got some great new brand of smokes
"Cool your head and clear your throat
"Keeps you young and so in touch."

Cheap advertising, you're lying
Never gonna get me what I want
I said, smooth talking, brain washing
Ain't never gonna get me what I need

"Our new soap that's peachy keen saves your soul and keeps you clean
"It's recommended, used by the queen
"Gonna improve your IQ, help in everything you do
"It's economic, don't cost too much."

Said advertising, you're lying
Never gonna give me what I want
I said, smooth talking, brain washing
Ain't never gonna get me what I need

I said take it
Come on
Soul man
Let's shoot the professor!
Alright!

What do I care?
Yeah! Hey man,
Where's the professor?
We need him now!
Gonna tell you 'bout them
Yeah we take it all the way 'round the world
For that west coast feel
Yeah man.
Yeah everything, let it out
It's not what you love
Look out on the radio
All right.
Yeah.
Yeah..


NO , YOUR PRODUCT

The tv screen becomes my eye
It's the legal monster of a future time
There's no opinion that ain't my own
No thought that isn't mine...
completely

I said 21 years is a long long time
To be in this prison when there ain't no crime
So go on jailer won't you bring the key
I want to break down the door
Can you hear me?

You know the damage gets done so fast
It's all the truths that just don't last

I got creeps in drag crawling round my door
Disguised as priests they quote the law
Selling bibles for a secret fee
They say it's all done for me
I'm such a lucky man

You know the damage gets done so fast
It's all the truths that just don't last
It's another lie they want to uphold
Another day till we all grow old and break down

So I get bored with a TV mind
No place to go no future's mine
NF banners flying in the wind
Like free lobotomies
I don't recommend one

So open your mouth and you get done
The police state keeps you on the run
Scream injustice better scream it loud
Get punched down in the crowd
And what can ya do?

You know the damage gets done so fast
It's all the truths that just don't last
It's another lie they want to uphold
Another day till we all grow old and break down

You know that damage gets done so fast, listen one time. You know that justice that'll never last. I said I'll break down and another day when my life grows old. We'll never listen. Another day when we'll never get told about what's going on. And that's just when I wanna break out, I wanna get out get out of here now. You know I just want to smash that door. Wanna take my time and I don't wanna see no small TV. Don't wanna see you. I don't wanna listen to a thing that they say. I wanna crash out, I wanna smash, I wanna smash it all. I said I got to take it away. I can't stand it no more. Because I just want to break out. I said I can't take any more. Because it's too much to handle. I said no more. A crime against the state. That's another shame...
