    Remember Anthrax and Mort Drucker teaming up for the legendary back cover art for the State of Euphoria album? Well now, FIREZONE teamed up with young and upcoming MAD Magazine illustrator Dennis Pfeil for an exclusive Tiger Blood & Adonis DNA design shirt. This package deal right here contains 1 of the 4 shirts that are put up for pre-order (part of 25 extremely limited edition shirts) + a physical copy of our latest Welcome to the FIREZONE EP + a digital download of the same EP in any format you could possibly desire. The design for this shirt will be different from the regular edition coming out later this year. Six shirts will be spread among band members and artist, 4 are put up for pre-order while the remaining 15 can be bought strictly at our upcoming shows. Shirts are completely black with double sided black & white/ grey print. The front print contains a MAD drawing of your favourite sitcom character with the FIREZONE track name: TIGER BLOOD & ADONIS DNA, while the back contains a large special Pfeil design of our name logo. Be WINNING and don't sleep on this one, cause this specific design will never be reprinted!

Track Name: Social Pathology
Firezone- Social Pathology (lyrics: B. Siersema)

no need for repetitive consumption
but to maintain market share function
planned obsolescence, large turnover rates
wasted resources, almost too late

top two percent own more
than fifty percent of the global wealth decor
while eighteen thousand children a day
starve to death, left to decay

the monetary system regulates
money supplies and interest rates
creating currency out of thin air
the result is default, hyperinflation’s the share

exponential money growth
devaluation, the sworn oath
create this anti-economy
with inherent inequality

deceive us, yet we’ve woken up
enslave us, the treadmill stops
depression, the world’s had enough
withdraw green, cast it off like slough
see us, yes we’ve woken up
perpetuated, yet the treadmill stopped
extinction, pretence is bluff
dumping bills, cast all off like slough

cause of pollution, deforestation
climate change, overpopulation
the truth is out, we now know it all
all the world’s central banks must fall
cause of poverty, death from starvation
black gold reigns cold, welcome damnation
the truth is out, we now know it all
socioeconomic system must fall
Track Name: Balcony of Terror
Firezone- Balcony Of Terror (lyrics: B. Siersema)

i can see the fear in your eyes
there is no way you can hide
i can taste the sin in the air
on this balcony life’s unfair

walk with me to a place back in time
one nine nine eight, wild year of crime
up these stairs where destiny unfolds
one four one dee, truth be untold

open the door and see the signs
if ya packing, besta grab your nine
one step away from instant doom
on the balcony, click click boom

step up, prove your ways aren’t in error
bow down before the balcony of terror
sentenced to become the curse bearer
learn the hard way on the balcony of terror

you’re not the first to fail the test
gone before you, have the best
see the spark grow cold in your eyes
as you lose faith in religious lies

welcome to the place where giants turn green
where exes freak out and punks get mean
where total terror is unleashed
as rooftops get climbed by the beast

the fall is long and hard the way
that leads to redemption, not astray
feel despair, you’re all alone
got caught up in the free-fire zone

all hope abandoned, all was in error
judgement rained down on the balcony of terror
reality check, now you’re the curse bearer
petrified on the balcony of terror

i can see the fear in your eyes
caught forever in a web of lies
i can taste the cowardice in the air
another sucker down in the dragon’s lair
Track Name: Part by Part
Firezone- Part by Part (lyrics: R. v.d. Boorn)

in this godforsaken town, no familiar face around
thinking of you, got to break through your solid walls
got your picture in a frame, when’s the end of this waiting game
i know that you’re there, just don’t know where- only shadows

what can i say, what can i do
for my, my words to get through to you
these solid walls around your heart
i’ll try to break down, part by part

what can i say, what can i do
for my, my words to get through to you
these solid walls around your heart
i’ll try to break down, part by part

expectations of a hell, compared to this are well
i’m fighting a fire with all my desire of loving you
i just want you to know, that i’ll never ever let go
our time will come, we’ll see the sun- no more agony

what can i say, what can i do
for my, my words to get through to you
these solid walls around your heart
i’ll try to break down, part by part
Track Name: Wake Up
Firezone- Wake Up (lyrics: B. Siersema)

wake up, give a fuck
time’s up, drain the cup
wake up, wake the fuck up
wake up, give a fuck
out of luck, drain the cup

i see blind men walking down the street
eyes on pavement, marching to an unheard beat
unaware of what’s behind these concrete lies
oblivious to the reign of few men in disguise

oh my god i see, this place not what it used to be
final fantasy, i cling onto these old beliefs
sit complacent, give a fuck about this misery
content to play my part in life in this puppetry
oh shut up and see, if you got what it takes to be

wake up to the alarm clock
time to leave the safety of the flock
now or never, the choice is yours
sleep forever or unlock doors- unbar more, unbolt doors

wake up, gotta stop
open up, mind unlocked

oh my now i see, my eyes are opened finally
to this false fantasy, no more cling onto beliefs
opportunity, embrace the moment to be free
get up and tear down these walls, smash what used to be
no more nineteen eighty-four, disposed of like debris

wake up to the alarm clock
time to leave the safety of the flock
now or never, the choice is yours
sleep forever or unlock doors- unbar more, unbolt doors

wake up, no more rot
drain the cup, take the shot
wake up, drain the cup
wake up, wake the fuck up
Track Name: Westerling
Firezone- Westerling (lyrics: B. Siersema)

i see what must be done
for justice to overcome
extreme reaction come
when battle must be won

this blood is on my hands
cause i care about this land
don’t think i don’t give a damn
i die with each ditch i cram

i killed the ones who were guilty
fought all evil without mercy
protected women and children
securing life in the kampong

rescued kidnapped solo
without hesitation or any dough
never backed down from a mission
even with lack of proper acquisition

accused of colonial sentiments
i was never against independence
but under javanese supremacy
indonesia still wouldn’t be free

betrayed by my own kind
for serving i find myself confined
this country i once called my own
left me dishonored and all alone

this one’s for d.s.t
the topi merah or k.s.t
for the ones that served in k.n.i.l
forgotten heroes of military drill

victims of propaganda
never forget these memoranda
what is taught in history class
is unlike law of conservation of mass
