Anger - drawing by Harvey Dog early 2000s. Used for the Hated Uncles video: "Anger".

I shiver with rage at the lack of sensitivity
when I walk around your smelly downtown,
There was this asshole
who pushed me aside, he thought he was tough,
I’m not taking it – I’ve had enough!

Don’t push me round (3X)
Don’t put me down (3X)
Anger (3X)

Sex in the city, isolation’s free
if you want to live miserably,
why don’t you talk to me,
I’ll remind you of your history,
we can’t keep making the same mistakes
if we wanna die, naturally!

We gotta fight (3X)
We gotta right (3X)
Anger (3X)

Screaming! - drawing by Harvey Dog 2021 for the "Why Do I Feel So Bad?" video.

This anger cannot be constrained
This anger cannot be restrained,
it’s time to spit it out
and let everybody know,
that it’s too late to be sedate
we’ve got to let the anger flow!

We gotta fight (3X)
Don’t push me round (3X)
Anger (3X)

I hate working the night shift
under the stars so bright,
I’d rather be free of employment
making the managers rich
while I struggle to pay my rent
all they do is bitch!!

Don’t push me round (3X)
Don’t push us round (3X)
Anger….(fade ranting)



  • One of three songs we recorded at Ted Willey’s studio during the winter of 1985-1986.
  • We didn’t have a drummer, but Chris Fozard was able to be our drummer for the session – he did an amazing job!
  • I still have that same anger residing within me – for better or worse. I wrote a lot of the lyrics while working the night shift at a nuclear reactor. haha
