Destroy

We want liberation, emancipation

We wanna destroy the system

Annihilate, antagonise

Use anarchy to terrorise

A short song composed for the embryonic Truro punk band Volatile whilst I was at school. One of the band later became a founding member and guitarist of the band The Family Cat. I also went to school with the drummer of The Family Cat. Richard James, better known as Aphex Twin, also went to my school, though started just as I left. It was a weird school. The headmaster once told me that I was the worst pupil they had ever had. Not because I misbehaved, though I did, but because I questioned everything they said and corrupted the program.
