  1. CHAIN SPACE

From the recording CHAIN SPACE

Lyrics

Chain Space was written and recorded after watching the BBC Panorama documentary on the shocking, distressing and criminal world of dog fighting 'Dog-Fighting Undercover' broadcast in UK.

One of the men involved in fighting with dogs was asked if he was sorry that his dog was so badly injured that he destroyed it (a brutal death by electrocution after being doused in cold water, this failed on the first attempt due to a power cut) The man's answer to the question was no, he wasn't bothered by losing his dog, he simply stated that it would give him more 'chain space' to get another dog.



'Chain Space'



Evil men, wastin' lives it's dog on dog it's short space life
It's hard to die and we're all gambled on the dice
Think of this, think of us, we're here, we're lost to please the hood
They think it's good how we go down and taste our blood.

I'm a fightin' dog give all I can don't feel the love I'm broken man
A tickin' bomb, I hurt alone and I won't ever make it home...

Chain space, they wanna roll me for chain space
They wanna own me I'm chain space
Yeah we're all chain space

Money talks, money lies, money wrecks so many lives
They think it's cool, there are no rules in bully school
They build us up, tear us down, they brutalize from dusk 'til dawn
Play this game of killin' dogs against the law.

I'm a fightin' dog give all I can don't feel the love I'm broken man
A tickin' bomb, I hurt alone and I won't ever make it home...

Chain space, they gonna roll me for chain space
They wanna own me I'm chain space
Yeah we're all chain space
Chain space, they gonna roll me for chain space
They wanna own me I'm chain space
Yeah we're all chain space
