about

So we are recording our new album. Lots of new songs on the horizon. Lots of new ideas. Things are looking good. Recently we were in the studio, we blasted off some old ones to get sound levels etc. When listening back we really liked how this one turned out. "Jokes on You" is one of our first songs.We wrote it a long time ago,seems like a lifetime ago now, the good old days. This one has always been one of our favourites to play live. We turned it into a giant epic song within our setlist. Going from fast punk to lazy reggae. We didn't take it too seriously and neither should you. It was always so fun to play. This new version features what we do today, with our new members and the way our sound has morphed over the years. It reminds us of the old days with the original lineup (much love) and lets us know how lucky we are to still be at it today with the new familia in the band now. This version is different than the original. It is what we are now. This song is a hybrid of 3rd wave ska, punk/hardcore and reggae. Bands like Bad Brains, Voodoo Glowskulls, Mighty Mighty Bosstones & Catch 22 were such an influence on us back then. As much as Manu Chao, Aggrolites and Katchafire are on us now. Punk rock has always been important to this band and reggae its equal friend. Here's a bit of both: FuriOs StYle!

lyrics

Jokes on You

You never saw it coming, it took you by surprise
It hits the ground running and nobody gets out alive
You've got the answers to all the questions, you've got no reason why
The dedication and devotion to somebody else's life

Don't you know what goes around comes back on you?
You've seen it all by now so what do you got to lose?
You think you know all the answers, You don't even have a clue!
Don't you know by now the Jokes on you, The Jokes on You!

Another day another dollar, another day goes by
Now they scream and holler and try to get a piece of the pie
Ashes ashes dust to dust, The good die young in God they trust
You give em everything but it's never enough
They all want a piece of the pie

Don't you know what goes around comes back on you?
You've seen it all by now so what do you got to lose?
You think you know all the answers, You don't even have a clue!
Don't you know by now the Jokes on you, The Jokes on You!

The jokes on you . . .
The jokes on you . . .
The jokes on you . . .
The jokes on you .
