about

"Echoing out of the cracks of poor municipal infrastructure, dimly lit sprawl, failing regional transit, and the likely familiar patina of wood laminate panelling in Mum's attic, Straight Truth blast out of Whitby Ontario with a short EP of rough hardcore punk. Raw, deep, killer vocals in the school of YDI over the alpha faux-mystique of layers of effect drenched power chords, and hammering drums. There's no hiding the force with which they deliver; there's no pretending to finesse; the condemnation of the suburbs; the power of the city: pure hc. 6 originals and a Cro Mags cover." - J. "Mad Man" Falco

Recorded February/March 2016 at the HELL HOUSE

Track Name: P.O.W.
Your fate was sealed years ago
Your dream is dead you’ve got to go
Your fate is a system you don’t get
Cold fucking death calls your debt

Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
You’re just a prisoner of war

Your fate is an icebox
Cold and frozen shame
when you’re gone, no one will find you
Murdered without blame

Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
You’re just a prisoner of war

There’s no peace in fucking graves
With your medals you’ll be saved,
Count your friends and count your time,
Sign your name on the fucking dotted line

Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
Prisoner of war
Prisoner of War!
Track Name: Turning Wheel
The spinning wheel turns round again
Morning to night it turns over again
Let go of this trap, break through these chains
Repetition is driving me insane

Every day’s the same
something’s got to reignite the flame
Every day gets worse
“Normal” expectations have become a curse

Worked to death, 9 to 5 you submit
I’ve got fucking nothing to show for it
Souls snuffed out by the men upstairs
Taking a life that’s not rightfully theirs
Track Name: In My Night
Between the hours of 10 and 8
All my boys come out to play
Chosen few who could never die
Welcome yourself to my night

Cause of death remains to be seen
Screams and cries are all we need
Stomping through the east-end streets
And every night this shit repeats

Join or die
Because you’re In my night
Slam fuck smash Fight
Now you’re in – in my night

We’ll never stop – we wont slow down
Keep your eyes on the ground
Be prepared for society’s attack
When it starts – who will have your back?

In my night x 4

Chosen few who could never die
Welcome yourself to my night
Track Name: Cracked Over the Head
You make eye-contact but there’s nothing there.
Stop dragging your boots - What are you scared?
You’ll be kissing the floor in a second or two
I hope you know what you got yourself into

I saw it - I felt it
but I kept my mouth shut
didn’t mind your shit, didn’t watch where you tread
Now you're gonna get cracked over the head
Track Name: R.C.M.P.
I cant stand the RCMP
Taking all my rights away from me
Hold you down, they’ve got a gun
Saturday night wont be much fun

Hey all you fucks, Gett outta here
Take your fucking badge, and Leave it fucking clear
I cant see past the grin on your face
Take all your bullshit and leave this place

I cant fucking stand this, DRT cop
when will this bullshit, when will it ever stop?
I don’t know. Take me downtown.
How many more have to get gunned down?

Hey all you fucks, Gett outta here
Take your fucking badge, and Leave it fucking clear
I cant see past the grin on your face
Take all your bullshit and leave this place
R – C – M - P!
