about

The Resignators Melbourne, Australia

Korweinguboora, Australia, based Ska Punk Rock band, The Resignators, have been bringing their brand of 'Aussie' Ska Punk to the universe for the past eleven years.
It’s a sound of melodic horns and floating keyboards fuelled by a tight, hard hitting rhythm section powered by a Jamaican inspired back beat that has been compared to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake and Suicide Machines

Track Name: Fish Outta Water
Fish outa water

The thing about you and me
Im gonna tread carefully
when I say playfully
do you want me or not

just sit back and rest
don’t rush to my defence
I think you're a total mess
though you say that you're not

you’re like a fish outa water
reel big fish when I saw ya
telling lies and I caught ya
you’re not what you’re portray

the weathers coming in
Leda’s here drinking gin
alcohol is sinking in
or maybe it’s not

maybe John is smoking green
doesn’t seems so obscene
Morgan just took an e
They’re wasted I’m not, but

you’re like a fish outa water
reel big fish when I saw ya
telling lies and I caught ya
you’re not what you’re portray

Back to the case at hand
When I’m playing in the band
at least that’s the plan
But sometimes it’s not

Now just tell me the truth
Maybe I am being rude
Everything I said it true
But you say it’s not.

Now i find myself asking questions
Knowing answers upon my reflection
it's times like these I see warnings
Pay attention the future is calling

you’re like a fish outa water
reel big fish when I saw ya
telling lies and I caught ya
you’re not what you’re portray
Track Name: Life in Limbo
LIFE IN LIMBO

Seen some crime
Done some time
Trapped in a world I don’t understand

Pull me near
Full of fear
I’d bend over backwards for you

And the things that we do
When the bar’s getting low
Music gets louder
The words start to flow

And the things that we do
When the bar’s getting low
There’s too much tension
The dance starts to slow

Who do you know?
How low can you go?
Living your life in limbo
Track Name: Lest We Forget
Lest we forget

It’s not what happened out there
All the things that we know
Shooting of guns
And bombs that explode
The feelings you hold
Not able to share
Night terrors scare in the cold dark air
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man

Didn’t take your life
But it stole your youth
A condemned man
Caught in a moment of truth
It seemed so exciting
When you’re waiting to go
The horror of war
How were you to know?
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man

Chorus:
As we stand to attention
With a glass in our hand
Remembering comrades who no longer can
Resighting the ode
And all that it means
Lest we forget all of their deeds

Called on by your country
It’s hard to resist
Comrades and mateship
One raised fist
It all seems so futile
When all have returned
An unfortunate lesson
That never got learned
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man
Track Name: Buy More Shit
Buy More Shit.

buy more shit,
buy more shit,
You're no-one till you fill your life right up with it

buy more shit,
buy more shit,
screw the earth, consume the lot, Gotta
Do Your Bit

Your Car reflects your character,
Your Shoes Reflect Your Sole,
If You dont wear a new pair everyday...
You're no good to us all

It's quantity not quality that
makes the jobs and keeps us fed,
It quantity that get's the girls into
your awesome king size bed

They'll be so impressed when they see your pad,
filled with stuff that makes you feel like you're a man
but if they won't give you head,
you're rich and white rape them all instead

It's quantity not quality that
makes the jobs and keeps us fed,
It quantity that get's the girls into your awesome king size bed

They can Sell you a platinum Jetski,
sell you a silver phone,
sell your dog a fur coat,.............,and a little golden bone,

a banker takes your hope and money ,
till you're sad and old
no matter how you work and pray..........
they'll always keep your soul

buy more shit

buy more shit,
buy more shit,
You're no-one till you fill your life right up with it

buy more shit,
buy more shit,
screw the earth, consume the lot, Gotta
Do Your Bit

It's quantity not quality that
makes the jobs and keeps us fed, X4

buy more shit! (x3)
