about

“We were not born critical of existing society. There was a moment in our lives (or a month, or a year) when certain facts appeared before us, startled us, and then caused us to question beliefs that were strongly fixed in our consciousness — embedded there by years of family prejudices, orthodox schooling, imbibing of newspapers, radio, and television. This would seem to lead to a simple conclusion: that we all have an enormous responsibility to bring to the attention of others information they do not have, which has the potential of causing them to rethink long-held ideas.” — Howard Zinn

Track Name: Manufacturing Truth
We were made this way
Our souls vacant and torn
Self-worth measured by progress
Progress measured by bone

Work. Breathe. Dream. Die.
Your saviours lie

You never read it
You manufacture
You tell the truth
You manufacture

Relations of production
We learn to ignore
Unplanned, unassumed
Crisis comes to the fore
Track Name: Owned By Thieves
Steady as she sinks
Boom and bust
A bare existence
Numbed by lust
How much is enough?

It’s not a crisis
They told you so
The market’s alright
Just needs to grow
How much is enough?

Expanding markets in the ghetto line
We’ll move some products and we’ll save some time
How much is enough?

It’s not a simple turn
Thrashing in the water
Relationships obscure
Thrashing in the water
Your town is owned by thieves
Thrashing in the water
Track Name: Down The K-Hole
What’d you decide? It’s down the k-hole
Regime elite selling the sorrow
Kingdom above — exchange the next life
What’d you decide? It’s down the k-hole

Only one shot
Into the void
This is my lot
On the inside
Track Name: Apostasy
In service of the petty thieves
Can’t swallow down the muddy tide
There was that moment when we woke up

Through bitterness, apostasy
Conquistadors born of pain
Misdirection teaching greed
Wait for the moment to look back
Mythic dreams through fault of vision and domain

There are things that are true in the haze of childhood
Track Name: The American Dream Is A Lie
Opiate the brutish life
To numb the pain, you take a wife
They sell you hope — you break your back
You make excuses — they don’t look back

The dream is dead, it never lived
Stillborn from the womb of revolt

Stillborn. It’s stillborn.
Track Name: Always Stockholm, Never Lima
On the back of a nation
The few build their wealth
The debased sell themselves
Law arrives by stealth

Somber towards revolution
You’ll never take up arms
Raw pathology in Stockholm
Learn to love the harm

Drugged and drowsy — ever waiting
No fire stirs
Gray monochrome art beckons
And the flags unfurl
