about

FOOD FOR WORMS Daegu, South Korea

Featuring members from Ireland, South Korea, and the United States, Food for Worms refuses to pigeonhole themselves into any one subgenre of punk.
So they're like...post-hardcore-ska-punkabilly...maybe?

After a rocky start including a major line-up change after one practice, two hand injuries, and a lost left-handed guitar, Food for Worms has been jamming in this incarnation since August 2014

Track Name: Bag Drinks
"Bag Drinks"

Wasn't sure what I wanted, I never made no plans
So I up and left my home for a foreign land
What the hell have I gotten into? Where the hell am I?
Some days I feel I got this other days I cry

I’m always getting stares out in the streets
Not even the sorest thumb sticks out like me
But after drinking with locals and eating samgyeopsal
I could tell that for once I finally made the right call

Well there's some shit I'm tired of, will never understand
And I'd be lying if I said things went exactly as I planned
But if I say I hate this place, get back to me in ten
Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again

Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again
Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again
Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again
Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again

Oh, everything's last minute, I never quite have time
And if it keeps up like this, I'm sure I'll lose my mind
Who cares if it's Wednesday? Let's go paint the town
We'll one shot the so-mek, and verb the adjective noun

Well there's some shit I'm tired of, will never understand
And I'd be lying if I said things went exactly as I planned
But if I say I hate this place, get back to me in ten
Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again

Another bag drink in me and I'll love this place again
Track Name: The Old Ways
"The Old Ways"

Every Generation shits on the next one
Every Generation shits on the next one
Calls them weak, lazy, and dumb
Every Generation shits on the next one
Every Generation shits on the next one
Calls them weak, lazy, and dumb

The old ways were so much better
Says the man in the argyle sweater
Yeah the old ways were so much better
They had flaws I can't seem to remember

Kids today are so fucking cruel
Hiding behind screens from a stool
But in another time, another place
They had to call you 'faggot' to your face
Track Name: The Man with No Name
“The Man With No Name”

I am riding into town
I am drinking whiskey down
I've got a loaded gun on my hip
And my boots are covered in shit

I don't care to choose a side
I don't care with whom you ride
I will play you all for fools
And rid this town of all you ghouls

I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name
Go ahead and place your bets
I will ride off into sunsets
I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name

I am not that easy to kill
I get shot but I live still
I will come back from the dead
And fill you all up with lead

You will all taste defeat
You will all lie at my feet
You can never screw with me
And still expect to go free

I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name
Go ahead and place your bets
I will ride off into sunsets
I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name

I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name
Go ahead and place your bets
I will ride off into sunsets
I am a man with the bad kind of fame
I am the man with no name
Track Name: Loquacious
"Loquacious"

Why the hell can’t I ever shut up?
If I could would I be in a rut?
Every word that comes to mind
Serves to prove that I can’t unwind

Always thinking but never learning
Why the hell won’t these gears stop turning?
I expect the best, hope for the worst
If I don’t let it out, it’s gonna burst

All these words at the back of my head
All these words at the back of my head
Throb, stab, cut, and pound
All these words at the back of my head
All these words at the back of my head
They're trying to dig out

Where I can’t scratch is where I itch
I was born with no off switch
Can't sleep at night, so I fear dawn
I go on for far too long

It’s apparent my own my brain hates me
If it hasn’t already it’ll drive me crazy
Tried to stay silent, but I failed
My train of thought has been derailed

All these words at the back of my head
All these words at the back of my head
Throb, stab, cut, and pound
All these words at the back of my head
All these words at the back of my head
They're trying to dig out

All the crass, obnoxious shit I say
Is just to keep the world at bay

All the crass, obnoxious shit I say
Is just to keep the world at bay

All the crass, obnoxious shit I say
Is how I keep the world at bay

All these words at the back of my head
Track Name: Bite the Pillow
“Bite the Pillow”

Congratulations on graduation
You just won a life of frustration
Don't got rich parents yer outta luck
Yer on yer own and totally fucked

Up 500 percent in 30 years
Who's spinning the wheels? Who's turning the gears?
They want something to hang over your head
To hold your pubes until you're dead

Bite the pillow (It's going in dry) (x4)

Trillion of dollars worth of debt
Still climbing there's no end yet
Keep the poor working keep the poor dumb
Destroy the middle class, make them succumb

Bite the pillow (It's going in dry) (x4)

Only the rich will go to school
The rest of us have all been fooled
They raise the cost of education
So they can justify segregation

Bite the pillow (It's going in dry) (x4)

It's all planned by the oligarchy
So let’s see how they like anarchy
Tear it all down and start again
Even if we wind up back here in the end

Bite the pillow it's going in dry (x3)
Bite the pillow!
Track Name: I Wanna Get My Ass Kicked
"I Wanna Get My Ass Kicked"

I wanna get my ass kicked
I wanna take my hits
I wanna get my ass kicked
I wanna get beat outta shit

Just wanna feel something
Gotta beat feeling nothing
Just wanna feel something
Gotta beat feeling nothing

Attempts at sex end in vain
So I try my hand at pain
Attempts at sex end in vain
So I try my hand at pain

Track Name: This is Fine
"This is Fine"

The world around me burns
The sky, it is on fire
The man on the evening news
is a goddamn liar

The rivers boiled over
The mountains are all falling
You fed me a crock of shit
And it's fuck-ing appalling

But I am fine
This is fine
Everything is fucking fine
You are fine
It's all okay
Let's just go our separate ways

The sky is full of lightning
Life’s a fucking bore
Take me to Babylon
I feel like the whore

The ground it splits open
My beast aint got two backs
My libido rides a white horse
And it's ready to attack

But I am fine
This is fine
Everything is fucking fine
You are fine
It's all okay
Let's just go our separate ways

The bombs have started dropping
The world's gone to war
No one ever fucking learns
They keep coming back for more

If this is how it ends
Then I don't even care
I just can't be bothered
To even stop and stare

But I am fine
This is fine
Everything is fucking fine
You are fine
It's all okay
Let's just go our separate ways
Track Name: Drinking Like We Don't Wanna Live
"Drinking Like We Don’t Wanna Live"

Work is the curse/ of the drinking class
For the past week it’s been/ kicking my ass
Gonna round up the crew/ and hit the bars
We aint going home until we/ got some scars

People tell me
“It’s a disease.”
I don’t care
I aint making new memories
Whiskey wine anything will do
Got this round next one’s on you

Cuz we’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
Sometimes it feels/ life has lost its worth
We’re grabbing grass to keep/ on the Earth

Now I find what Fitzgerald/ said was true
You take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink starts taking you

People tell me
"It’s a disease."
I don’t care,
I aint making new memories
Whiskey, wine anything will do
Got this round, next one’s on you

Cuz we’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
Sometimes it feels/ life has lost its worth
We’re grabbing grass to keep/ on the Earth

Cuz we’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
We’re drinking like we don’t wanna live
