1.
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
2.
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
3.
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

04:46
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
6.
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.
7.
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

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
