lyrics

There’s no stopping here tonight
It’s been four weeks outside and
Everything, everything looks
Blue and red and bright
Well I know
No words can be tamed
Enough to pull our minds out from the trees and
Back in to frame

So how can one listen
To the sound of steady breathing
When there’s no pride in the air?
Still seeking remission?
Why not just stand before a green screen
Stamp a number on your head and fall right in?

There’s a war uptown tonight
I hear some kids talking and
Everyone, everyone did
Not start the fight
And no one will say
“Why can’t you be more like your family is?”
And your life’s at stake

There’s no opposition
‘Cause if real resistance comes
Fools run while untouchables get fucked
No point of fruition
No that was out the window long before
We lost the will to leave our homes at all


And when words don’t come out so simple
And your chords don’t ring so true
You can spend a grey, stoned, smoky night right here
Or empty your cartridges and lose

Come on, come on
Don’t fucking wait
I just can’t stand this place or anything, anything
That’s my artistic take
