about

Stöj Snak Aalborg, Denmark

Stöj Snak is a SCREAMER-SONGWRITER project from Aalborg, DENMARK.

Musically and creatively Stöj Snak is shaped by the punk scene. And though Stöj Snak is a step away from punk and the limitations of a traditional band, the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic DIY approach is still very visible in the songwriting. ... more

Track Name: Collateral Damage
COLLATERAL DAMAGE

I've walked the desert for miles
I've seen my best friends fight and die
We've got the truth on our side so I don't mind

We keep the love from our lives
There is no time to feel broken hearted
Only the strong will survive
I have a feeling that something's gonna blow

I've got an itch and I can't quite scratch it
It's there when I sit still
There must be peace at the end of this last war
I'm going in for the kill

My gun gives and it takes
But our destination is all the same
And I just follow orders so I'm not to blame

I'm trained to do what I know
I've grown detached from the greater good here
I'm not at ease 'less I go
I have a feeling that something's gonna blow

No turning back I lived and killed for my country
And I've got hooked on the thrill
I've got the truth and I'll stay on the right side
I'm going in for the kill

This is my war!

We march in time and the wheels keep on turning
We’ve got a purpose to fill
I'm not so sure that it's peace that we want here
I'm going in for the kill


“The truth is more important than the facts.”
- Frank Lloyd Wright
Track Name: State of Mine
STATE OF MINE

If there's a place for everyone this one's a state of mine where individuals stand side by side
Where politics and discontent, angst and DIY grow into roots of the future
Into to a place where people really care

Folk singers and grindcore bands can stand a common ground fuelled by the same raw creative drive
Something more than power chords and beats in double time; uncompromised self-expression
Just a place where people really care

This is my friends and a new family
One based on bonds and a common philosophy
And when my life has choked the last of me
This time was all mine

We question the conventions as we build communities
Innovation rises from free ideas
Worldwide dedication gives a reason to believe, far beyond profits and deadlines
In a place a where people really care

This is my friends and a new family
And there will be no Gods and no masters
Track Name: Party on the Hillside
PARTY ON THE HILLSIDE

Let’s have a party on the hillside, let’s forget it all
Fuck this depression 'cause we’re all dying
I need a drink, one for good health
You need a drink, one for the next one
Let’s all just pretend that it’s 1929

Once we had something to live for, now we only fight against
We fell outside; our world will not be burning
I need a drink to blur my outlook
You need a drink, one for the next one
Let’s all just pretend that it’s 1929

Let’s have a party on the hillside, let’s all leave with a blast
Yeah, I can live with that I’ll die denying
I need a drink, one for last breaths
You need a drink, one for the next one
Let’s all just pretend that it’s 1929


“Every wave, regardless of how high and forceful it crests, must eventually collapse within itself.”
- Stefan Zweig
Track Name: Great Ideas Need Landing Gear
GREAT IDEAS NEED LANDING GEAR

I have an idea to change the world; a way to make it better
I pitched it to my boss, he says it’s gonna make us rich
I had a chat with marketing, they say we’re gonna reach out to millions
They only had a few quite reasonable suggestions

But I know it’s gonna be better for everyone
It’s gonna be better for our daughters and sons
Yeah I know it’s gonna be better for everyone
But great ideas need landing gear

I made some calls to find the funding but the investors didn’t like it
So I ironed out the edges and took a few requests
Then I got some urgent issues and only I could fix them
So I was taken off, now I think some intern’s now on the project

But I know it’s gonna be better for everyone
It’s gonna be better for our daughters and sons
It’s gonna be better for everyone
But great ideas need landing gear

“Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings”
- C.O. Jackson
Track Name: No Refunds
NO REFUNDS

It’s not me who is making enemies based on old scriptures out of time
Not me, I don’t care, all I believe: our purpose is our own to find

It’s not me who’s supposed to prove that something that we cannot see is not there
Not me. Find a better argument than someone wrote it down somewhere

There’s so much opportunity to find a reason to be
Don’t you think it’s kind of freeing knowing there’s no more to see here when you close your eyes

It’s not me living by some odd idea that life will really start the day it ends
Not me, if there is a Hell I know I’ll be going with my friends

My music, friends and family give me a reason to be
But I think it’s really freeing knowing there’s no more to see here when I close my eyes

There’s this one opportunity to find a reason to be
Life’s much easier to swallow when there’s no right path to follow
And your purpose is your own to find
