about

The Red Pills Leeds, UK

The Red Pills took their name from the 1999 movie 'The Matrix.' In one scene, Keanu Reeves' character 'Neo' is presented with a choice of pills to ingest; a red pill or a blue pill. Each is a metaphor - taking the blue pill will allow Neo to continue to live a cosy, comfortable lie. Taking the red pill will allow him to wake up to the truth. ... more

Track Name: You Rip Me Up
You rip me up inside, cos you turn me on
Still reeling from the lie – you said your love will never die
Now I find myself alone, with no reason why

I carried you home when you couldn’t stand
Too drunk to justify what you had done
Now I’m bleedin’ on the floor and I find that you have gone

You have gone, yeah you have gone

I carried you home when you couldn’t stand
Too drunk to justify what you had done
Now I’m bleedin’ on the floor and I find that you have gone

You have gone, yeah you have gone
You have gone, yeah you have gone
Track Name: Such A Shame
I feel love and I feel it now
You and me we’re the same somehow
Wanna hold you girl you’re my rose
But you won’t let me get that close

It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame

See me here with my tear-stained eyes
Wish you could see with eyes like mine
I love you but you don’t love me
We’re the same but you just don’t see

It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame

It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame

So come on won’t you tell me now
What to do when you’re not around
It feels wrong but you’re still the one
You’re all I want, I can’t move on

It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame

Guess I no longer belong
Feels like I’m doing you wrong
No words can steady your mind
Guess I’m not, one of your kind
Baby I’m falling for you
And there’s nothing I can do
You won’t ever feel the same
You won’t ever change

It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shame
It’s such a shame, shaaaame
Track Name: Absolute Power
I am not, god manifest
But if I was, I’d never rest
Erase the scum, the human wrecks
And hammer out, injustices

And that is why, I, could never be God
My intolerant eyes, woah
Are not meant to be divine
And that is why, I, could never be God
I’d commit genocide, woah
To preserve a way of life

I know you’d say, it’s dangerous
To contemplate, a massacre
And how could I, shed so much blood
In a crusade, for something good

And that is why, I, could never be God
My intolerant eyes, woah
Are not meant to be divine
And that is why, I, could never be God
I’d commit genocide, woah
To preserve a way of life

I know they’d say, that it’s fascist
To try and make, a world like this
But it’s not race, nothing ethnic
That generates, my prejudice

And that is why, I, could never be God
My intolerant eyes, woah
Are not meant to be divine
And that is why, I, could never be God
I’d commit genocide, woah
To preserve a way of life

Here’s what I say - the reprobates
They don’t deserve, to respirate
They steal and rape, murder and hate
Never create, obliterate

And that is why, I, could never be God
My intolerant eyes, woah
Are not meant to be divine
And that is why, I, could never be God
I’d commit genocide, woah
To preserve a way of life

I don’t want – Absolute Power x4
We don’t want – Absolute Power x4
Track Name: Sunset Boulevard
I’m waltzing, down Sunset Boulevard
In a stripy leotard
The monkeys all in their Sunday best, line the street
Tapping their feet
Well they, they whistle a tune for me
They whistle a tune for me

Aaaa-aaa-aaa-ohh x4

You were just standing, over there
Running your fingers through your hair
Your eyes putting me to the test, in the heat
You ridicule me
Well you’re, you’re laughing at me
You’re laughing at me

Oh no it’s not so bad
It’s just another of those dreams, I had

Aaaa-aaa-aaa-ohh x4
Track Name: Smile For Me Jenny
Come on and smile for me Jenny
Don’t you know just how much it would mean?
I need you close to me Jenny
It was written in the stars that we would be

Aaah, shine for me Jenny
Look at me and light up my life with your smile
I need you close to me always
Since you’ve been away, I’ve been out of my mind

Hanging around with my head underground
Keeping the world at bay
Hoping one day you will come back to me
And take away my pain

Come on and smile for me Jenny
Don’t you know just how much it would mean?
I need you close to me Jenny
It was written in the stars that we would be
Track Name: Fashion Victim
Cut price ties so cheap they’re hanging from the rack
Slave labour stitched so neat and tidy packed
I’m buying one to strangle you when you turn your back

Another fashion victim neutralised
Gotta love those cut price ties

Cut price shoes they shine a method of attack
Secret weapon hidden bruising steel toe-caps
I’m wearing some to kick you lifeless for a laugh

Another fashion victim black and blue
Gotta love those cut price shoes

Y-fronts no-one wants, their prices slashed
I’m stealing some to smother you while you’re in the bath
Easy pickings for a willing psychopath

Another fashion victim neutralised
Gotta love those cut price ‘y’s

Tie you down in your dressing gown
Mangle you with sandals
Get reckless with your necklace
Leave your head at a funny angle

Another fashion victim neutralised
Another fashion victim neutralised
Another fashion victim neutralised…

… You shouldn’t be seen dead in that dress.
