about

The US government goes to great lengths to justify drone warfare and torture programs using elaborate memos that set out the legality of clearly illegal activities. This demonstrates just how important it is to prop up the disaster-capitalism complex and “security” industry, though any discussion of profit motive is conspicuously absent. Collateral damage includes not only innocent people tortured or killed, but also the moral and psychological damage inflicted on a public constantly subjected to these lies in the name of “safety.” Dulled by this onslaught, citizens eventually relax and begin to accept the ideas of faceless assassination and enhanced interrogation as not only justifiable, but necessary.

lyrics

There are those who walk. There are those who crawl.
Keep the fingertips away from the face.
Squaring up your target in the smaller box.

Not a predicate act. Threat of future harm.
Heap revenge on revenge. Three Oh Nine Three.

There are those who walk. There are those who crawl.
Every horror witnessed, wish my eyes would rot.
Stumble into daylight across the parking lot.

Comfort and control. Reticles align.
Judge and you will be. Short-circuit court.
