1. A.D.

“IF YOU LOOKED AT THE EARTH AS A LIVING ORGANISM

AND YOU WERE FLYING

PASSING OVER THESE BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS

THEN YOU’D SEE THE OCEAN AHEAD

IT ALL LOOKS NATURAL AND BEAUTIFUL

THEN YOU’D SEE THE CITY

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT

THAT’S A GROWTH

THAT’S CANCER

IT’S BIG AND BROWN AND SMOKE’S COMING OUT OF IT

AND IT’S GETTING BIGGER EVERY YEAR

AND IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU DO

IT JUST KEEPS GOING

 

YOU CAN KNOCK IT DOWN WITH A HURRICANE

IT REBUILDS

YOU CAN LIGHT IT ON FIRE

IT REBUILDS

 

IF YOU WERE LOOKING AT THE EARTH AS A LIVING ORGANISM

YOU WOULDN’T SEE INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE

YOU’D SEE A SCAR ON THE PLANET

 

I THINK IF YOU LOOK AT US OBJECTIVELY

AND THE WAY WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

WE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO DESTROY THE EARTH

COS I THINK SOMEHOW THAT’S WHAT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO DO

I THINK WE’RE HEAR TO FUCK SHIT UP”

 

NOTHING FROM NO ONE

NOTHING FROM NO ONE

NOTHING FROM NO ONE

NOTHING FROM NO ONE

 

Nothing to prove, nothing to lose. Feel alive.

2. WAR CRIMES

SPEAK TO ME KID - TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

THE REFLECTION OF THIS WORLD’S 

PAIN & MISERY?

 

LOOK INTO THESE EYES - TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

CAN YOU FEEL THE PAIN?

CAN YOU FEEL THE GRAVITY?

 

LOOK INTO YOURSELF - TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

ARE YOU THE ANSWER?

ARE YOU THE PROBLEM?

 

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU IS FUCKING GUILTY

FOR CRIMES AGAINST THIS WORLD

 

CAN YOU TASTE IT? CAN YOU TASTE IT?

THE BLOOD IN YOUR FUCKING MOUTH

CAN YOU FEEL IT? CAN YOU FEEL IT?

THE WEIGHT OF A THOUSAND LIVES

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME TO JUSTIFY?

 

I CAN SEE YOU’RE WEAK

YOU NEED TO LIE TO YOURSELF

THE TONGUE IN YOUR CHEEK

I'LL MAKE A MARTYR OF YOU

 

I SEE YOU’RE WEAK

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY THOUSANDS DIE?

I SEE YOU’RE WEAK

TO SATISFY AN UNWARRANTED WAY OF LIFE?

I SEE YOU’RE WEAK

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY?

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY?

 

SPEAK TO ME KID - TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

 

CAN YOU TASTE IT?

CAN YOU TASTE IT?

THE BLOOD IN YOUR FUCKING MOUTH

CAN YOU FEEL IT?

CAN YOU FEEL IT?

THE WEIGHT OF A THOUSAND

LIVES

 

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME TO JUSTIFY?

 

Can you see the injustice in the world? Children in poverty simply because of the place they were born. Feel the way society works - the balance of rich to poor - profit over people - is unfair? Want change? Be the fuse - rethink the way you live and don’t support unethical or unsustainable companies. It can be as simple as you make it - boycott - become conscious - choose which companies you spend your money with - be the difference you want to see in the world. You are the consumer - you have the power.

3. VIOLENCE

I WONDER HOW WE CAN NOT REACT

WITH VIOLENCE AND PURE HATE

WHEN THAT'S ALL WE'VE EVER BEEN SHOWN

WHEN IT'S ALL WE HAVE EVER KNOWN?

 

AND I WONDER IF ONE DAY

WHEN THE SHACKLES ARE BROKEN

IF THE MASTERS WILL SEE MERCY

WHEN MERCY IS UNKNOWN?

HOW?

WHEN NO MERCY HAS BEEN SHOWN

 

HOW DO I SEE?

WITH THIS BLACK CLOUD SURROUNDING ME

HOW CAN I FEEL?

LOVE WHEN IT'S DROWNED IN MISERY

 

TO AWAKE A MIND

THAT'S ONLY BEEN TAUGHT TO SLEEP?

GIVE ME RELIEF

AND I FUCKING HATE THIS NEGATIVE SHIT

 

POSSESSED AND CONSUMED

BY EVERY THOUGHT UNSAVOURY

SHOW ME CLARITY

AND I FUCKING HATE THIS NEGATIVE SHIT

 

AND I'M SICK OF STARING AT THE TONGUES IN YOUR FUCKING CHEEKS

AND I'M SICK OF EVERY DAY BEING SO GOD DAMNED FUCKING GREY

 

COME AT ME

COME AT ME

COME AT ME

I'LL AWAKEN A MIND THAT’S ONLY BEEN TAUGHT TO SLEEP

 

COME AT ME

COME AT ME

COME AT ME

I'LL OPEN A MIND BLINDED BY NEGATIVITY

 

SHOW ME RELEASE

TO AWAKE A MIND 

THAT'S ONLY BEEN TAUGHT TO SLEEP?

GIVE ME RELIEF

AND I FUCKING HATE THIS NEGATIVE SHIT

 

POSSESSED AND CONSUMED

BY EVERY THOUGHT UNSAVOURY

SHOW ME CLARITY

AND I FUCKING HATE THIS NEGATIVE SHIT

 

HOW DO I SEE?

WITH THIS BLACK CLOUD SURROUNDING ME

HOW CAN I FEEL?

LOVE WHEN IT'S DROWNED IN MISERY

 

AND I WONDER IF ONE DAY

WHEN SHACKLES ARE BROKEN

IF THE MASTERS WILL SEE MERCY

WHEN MERCY IS UNKNOWN

 

This song is about how negativity breeds negativity. Wallowing in it only makes things worse, it’s not just deconstructive, it’s infectious, it poisons those that surround you. Don’t like something - then it can be simple - change it. How can you expect people to turn around and treat you with respect when you constantly disrespect them - how can you expect a hand reaching out when you constantly bite it. Be there for your friends when they’re down - don’t turn your back and judge. Everyone makes mistakes. Deal with it.

4. I'M JUST NOT THERE

I FEEL YOUR EYES ON ME

HEAR YOUR VOICES

SPEAKING MY NAME

DOUBT SINKS IN

 

THOSE DAGGERS DIG SO DEEP MAN

SO DEEP, I CAN'T EXPLAIN

WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT THICK SKIN? 

THAT KEPT MY SANITY IN...

 

NOW I'M JUST WASTING AWAY

BRIGHT EYES FADING FAST

I AM ALWAYS AT MY ENDS

ALWAYS AT MY ENDS

 

SO WHEN DID I 

MAKE THE TIME

TO DIG A DITCH SO BIG

THAT OCEANS SURROUND ME?

 

THAT'S HOW FAR I FEEL

FROM REALITY

YOU MIGHT LOOK AT ME AND THINK

HE'S JUST NOT THERE

 

HE'S JUST NOT THERE

HE'S JUST NOT THERE

HE'S JUST NOT THERE

HE'S JUST NOT THERE

 

I STARE AT MYSELF

STARING AT YOU

AND I JUST DON'T CARE

BECAUSE I'M NOT THERE…

NO...

 

I'M MILES AWAY

AN OCEAN AWAY

FOR ALL OF THOSE LOST INSIDE

YOU KNOW THE TRUE POWER OF YOUR MIND

 

THAT THE NIGHTMARE IS WHEN YOU'RE AWAKE

AND SLEEP IS THE ONLY ESCAPE

THE WORLD IS COLD

AND EVERY CROWDED STREET YOU ARE ALONE

 

BLINDED BY EYES AND JUDGING THOUGHTS

SILENCED BY OTHERS WORDS

THE WORLD IS COLD

AND EVERY CROWDED STREET YOU ARE ALONE

 

WHILE OTHERS FIGHT FOR ATTENTION

AND FIGHT FOR THE CENTRE STAGE

WE SLIP BACK

WE FADE AWAY

 

WHILE OTHERS FIGHT FOR ATTENTION

AND FIGHT FOR THE CENTRE STAGE

WE SLIP BACK

WE FADE AWAY

 

AND SO WE FIGHT

AND WE WIN

 

At your lowest it can be hard to find comfort even when you surround yourself with close friends. Your insecurity skews a distorted reality where everything anyone says could be hurtful and cut deep. You alienate yourself and disconnect. Anxiety makes it hard to leave a room and you feel alone in a crowded one. Take the time and quietly overcome, find someone you can trust and speak your mind, be active. When I feel paralysed like this I will listen to certain bands - feel empowered and press on, hopefully this song can do that for you....never give up and never feel like you have too...so we fight. 


 

5. SHOW SOME HEART II

 

[feat. Ben Coyte]

 

I STAND HERE 

NOT ONE BUT WITH THE STRENGTH OF A MILLION

HEAR THEIR VOICES ECHO EVERY WORD

WE NEED THE WORLD TO SEE THEMSELVES THROUGH OUR EYES

TO SEE THE POISON

TO SEE THROUGH THE LIES

 

I STAND HERE 

NOT ONE BUT WITH THE STRENGTH OF A MILLION

HEAR THEIR VOICES ECHO EVERY WORD

WE NEED THE WORLD TO SEE THEMSELVES THROUGH OUR EYES

TO SEE THE POISON

TO SEE THROUGH THE LIES

 

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

AND I SAID IT...

AND I SAID IT...

 

I'LL TAKE A STAND FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T

AND I'LL SCREAM FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I'LL TAKE A STAND FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T

AND I'LL SCREAM FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK

CAN YOU FEEL ME?

 

I STAND HERE

NOT ONE BUT WITH THE STRENGTH OF A MILLION

HEAR THEIR VOICES ECHO EVERY WORD

HEAR THEIR VOICES ECHO EVERY WORD

 

WE NEED THE WORLD TO SEE THEMSELVES THROUGH OUR EYES

TO SEE THE POISON

TO SEE THROUGH THE LIES

 

DO YOU FEEL THE GUILT?

DO YOU?

DO YOU FEEL THE GUILT?

DO YOU?

DO YOU FEEL THE GUILT?

SHOW SOME HEART

 

SHOW

SOME

HEART

SHOW SOME HEART

 

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

AND I SAID IT BEFORE

AND I'LL SCREAM IT AGAIN

 

I'LL TAKE A STAND FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T

AND I'LL SCREAM FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK

 

This song isn’t about being vegan or vegetarian but about being a conscious consumer - think about what you consume and buy in all aspects of your life. Every action has a consequence and your food/clothes have a long history before they reach you - I could care less about what you eat or what you do - but be informed - don’t be a mindless robot.


 

6. LOVESICK

 

IT'S FUNNY TO THINK

I PENNED SUCH SWEET WORDS FOR YOU

THAT I SHED TEARS

AND FELT REAL PAIN FOR YOU

 

IT'S FUNNY TO THINK

THAT I FELT ANYTHING AT ALL

 

NOW I ONLY SEE A RUSTED ANCHOR

YOU'VE GOT NO SOUL

AND I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT

I WASTED SOME GOOD YEARS

UNDER YOUR SPELL

 

AND I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT

IT WAS LIVING HELL

AND I'D BE LYING IF I SAID

I COULD EVER MISS YOU

 

I SWORE THAT NIGHT YOU'D ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART

NOTHING COULD EVER TEAR US APART

NOTHING…

 

AND I SAVED YOU ONCE

AND I SAVED YOU TWICE

STITCHED SLICED WRISTS

PICKED YOU UP OFF THE FLOOR

SMASHED THAT BOTTLE THAT I TOLD YOU TO IGNORE

I TOLD YOU TO IGNORE

 

BROKEN EVERY VOW THAT YOU SAID TO ME

LOVESICK

BROKEN EVERY VOW THAT YOU SAID TO ME

LOVESICK

 

AND NOW YOU WONDER WHY

I CAN'T LOOK YOU IN THE EYE?

BECAUSE I KNOW 

WHAT I DON'T WANNA KNOW..

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

 

HOW MANY BEDS YOU'VE WARMED

HOW MUCH FLESH YOU'VE TURNED

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

 

HOW MANY SHEETS YOU'VE CRAWLED

HOW MANY LIVES YOU'VE SOILED

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

AND I DON'T WANNA KNOW

 

AND IT'S FUNNY TO THINK

I SHARED ANYTHING WITH YOU

AND I REGRET EVERY SINGLE SECOND I WASTED ON YOU

AND I WISH FOR NOTHING

BUT DESERT AND WALLS BETWEEN US

IT'S NOT THAT I HATE YOU

I'VE JUST LOST ALL RESPECT

 

LOVESICK

 

AND NOW YOU WONDER WHY

I CAN'T LOOK YOU IN THE EYE?

AND NOW YOU WONDER WHY

I CAN'T LOOK YOU IN THE EYE?

LOVESICK

 

First ‘love’ song I have ever written. This is some personal therapy for me. Shout outs to being naive.


 

7. NOTHING FROM NO ONE

 

I SEE YOUR MIND IS SICK

AND YOUR BODY IS SLOW

FRIEND TELL ME NOW

WHERE DO WE GO?

 

I JUST DON'T KNOW

I JUST DON'T KNOW

 

AM I THE ONLY ONE

WHO DOESN'T SHARE THE DISEASE?

AM I THE ONLY MAN

WHO HASN'T DROWNED IN APATHY?

 

AND I FEEL FUCKED UP

FEEL LIKE EVERYONE'S SHOUTING

NO HOME FOR THE HOMESICK MAN

I'VE GOT NOWHERE TO GO

I'M TRAPPED BY THESE FUCKING WALLS

IF I DIDN'T BURN THESE BRIDGES

I'D CROSS THEM ALL

 

AND THIS WILL MEAN NOTHING TO ANY OF YOU

AND I DON'T GIVE A FUCK

I JUST WANT TO SEE IT ALL BURN

 

"WE ARE THE LOST CHILDREN OF A LOST GENERATION"

BECAUSE IT SOUNDS SO FUCKING COOL

TO SAY THAT "WE ARE NOTHING FROM NO ONE"

THE APATHETIC WASTES

WHO CARE MORE FOR LABELS THAN FACES

FUCKING DISGRACES

 

SO WHERE DO YOU TURN

WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE GETTING LOW?

I SING THIS FROM THE HEART

AND YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW

AND I DON'T WANT YOU TOO

BECAUSE I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ANYMORE

 

I JUST WANT TO WATCH IT BURN

LET'S SEE THE WORLD BURN

LET'S SEE THE WORLD BURN

LET'S SEE THE WORLD BURN

 

I’ve been chasing this whole ‘change the world’ dream for a long time now. Slowly but surely I’ve seen my peers fade and drop away. Spent hours, days, weeks and months of my life following my beliefs and passion. Worked so hard only to have people throw stones and try to make it seem insignificant. After a while you feel like you’re burnt out...you want to quit…“What’s the fucking point?” You criticise the very movement that has kept you sane your whole life. I wrote this song when I wanted to walk away...but how can I when this is what pumps my blood and picks me up. I don’t give a fuck if some shitty fad dies tomorrow, this will forever be real to me and will be to you too. We live in a world with a million things screaming at us every day, telling us we are not good enough, bound to a mould that we must fit into, a set of traits we must adhere to - to the point where if you step out of line your peers will judge and look down upon you enforcing some twisted totalitarian style reign over us. This is my salvation - at times it can be a parody of itself, some people make it seem fake - but this is so real and true to me - 26 years old as I write these words - I still feel the same fire as when I listened to NOFX when I was 13. This song, entire album and band’s existence goes out to those who keep this alive in their actions and hearts.


 

8. PAUL ALLEN

 

I FEEL NOTHING FROM NO ONE

SHARE NO EMPATHY

BUT I GOT SOME PROBLEMS

EATING AWAY AT MY SANITY

 

I FEEL NOTHING FROM NO ONE

SHARE NO EMPATHY

BUT I GOT SOME PROBLEMS

EATING AWAY AT MY SANITY

 

JUST ANOTHER LOST SOUL

SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL

DON'T TELL ME

WHAT I ALREADY KNOW

 

AN ENDLESS CYCLE

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL

AN ENDLESS CYCLE

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL

 

DON'T STOP TO THINK

WE'RE OUT OF CONTROL

 

YOU FEEL HOLLOW

A HUNGER THAT JUST WON'T SEE AN END

NO AMOUNT OF WATER WILL QUENCH

 

YOU FEEL HOLLOW

A HUNTER THAT JUST WON'T SEE AN END

NO AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT YOU CAN SPEND

 

THE FAILINGS OF OUR SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT

BECOMING ALL TOO APPARENT

THESE FOUNDATIONS THAT HOUSE OUR SANITY 

WILL SHAKE AND…

 

SPLIT! SPLIT! SPLIT! SPLIT!

AND I THINK MY MASK IS ABOUT TO…

 

SLIP! SLIP! SLIP! SLIP! 

DON'T TELL ME…

 

I'M JUST ANOTHER LOST SOUL

SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL

DON'T TELL ME

WHAT I ALREADY KNOW

 

AN ENDLESS CYCLE

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL

AN ENDLESS CYCLE

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL

 

CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

TO UNTANGLE A WEB

SPUN SO WELL

SPUN SO WELL

CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

 

“Are you searching for something? Never feeling quite complete...no one knows what they want, who they are or where they are going. Because there is no answer, we’re already dead.”

9. GOLD

 

[feat. Oscar McCall]

 

NO REAL LOVE TO BE FELT

NO TRUE ROMANCE CAN BE HELD

WHEN A LIFE IS MEASURED IN THE 

ACCUMULATION OF WEALTH

 

I HAVE LEARNT

A COLD HEART CANNOT EMIT WARMTH

AND A POISONED MIND

CANNOT BE CURED

 

WHAT GLORY WILL YOU HOLD? 

WHEN THESE LIES ARE EXPOSED?

NOTHING GOLD WILL STAY

WE MUST FIND A BETTER WAY

 

SO WHY WON'T YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS

AND TEACH THEM TO YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS?

SO THIS SOCIETAL CANCER

THESE POISONED MINDS DON'T MOVE FURTHER

 

WHY IS IT UNREASONABLE TO SUGGEST

AN ALTERNATIVE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE?

WHERE THE LIVES WE LIVE ARE STRONGER

WHERE THE LIVES WE LIVE ARE STRONGER

 

WHAT GLORY WILL YOU HOLD? 

WHEN THESE LIES ARE EXPOSED?

NOTHING GOLD WILL STAY

WE MUST FIND A BETTER WAY

 

BECAUSE THE VULTURES STILL LIVE

BECAUSE THE IGNORANT STILL TEACH

BECAUSE THE BLIND MAN

STILL CLAIMS HE SEES

 

BECAUSE THE VULTURES STILL LIVE

BECAUSE THE IGNORANT STILL TEACH

BECAUSE THE BLIND MAN

STILL CLAIMS HE SEES

 

NOTHING GOLD WILL STAY

WE FIND A BETTER WAY

NOTHING GOLD WILL STAY

WE FIND A BETTER WAY

 

Materialism and consumerism - our society is based on money, status and possessions. Why it isn’t focussed on people/happiness I don’t know. We breed ignorance and those who speak up are spat on by their ignorant or apathetic peers. Beauty fades, money comes and goes, status is contextual - what is real to you?


 

10. STICKS & STONES

 

THIS IS WHERE MY MIND ESCAPES

TO YOU I CAN'T RELATE

THIS IS WHERE MY MIND ESCAPES

TO YOU I CAN'T RELATE

 

I CAN'T RELATE

 

BLIND EYES BURNT BLACK

TASTE TORN AWAY

A BITTER TASTE

OH HOW I PRAY

 

TO MASK THAT STENCH YOU CREATE

THAT BLACK HOLE

THE WEIGHT OF ITS GRAVITY

 

THIS IS WHERE MY MIND ESCAPES

TO YOU I CAN'T RELATE

THE SLOW BURN

THE PULL OF NEGATIVITY

 

I STARE THROUGH YOU

SO PAPER THIN

WITH YOUR PAPER SKIN

 

WHISPERED WORDS ONLY FALL ON DEAF EARS

STICKS AND STONES

I'M AT PEACE WITH ALL MY FEARS

 

THIS IS WHERE MY MIND ESCAPES

TO YOU I CAN'T RELATE

 

BLIND EYES BURNT BLACK

TASTE TORN AWAY

OLD FRIEND

HOW DID

WE GET TO THIS DAY?

 

HATER TELL ME

WHAT THE FUCK

DO YOU HAVE LEFT?

SKIN AND BONES

WHERE IS ALL YOUR FLESH?

 

WHERE IS ALL YOUR FLESH?

WHERE IS ALL YOUR FLESH?

 

TRUST ME AS I SWEAR

BLACK AND BLUE

THAT THIS SONG IS ABOUT YOU

 

WHERE IS ALL YOUR FLESH?

 

This song is about a few people who have come and gone from my life. Similar personality traits - harbingers of drama and deceit - caring about all the wrong things. Live your own lives but when you’re literally going out of your way to try to hurt and mislead others to feel better about yourself....you deserve all the karma and pain coming your way.


 

11. EPSOM

 

I LIVE A LIFE OF SPITE

 

WE ARE ALL FUCKING DISEASED

A CANCER

ROTTING IN THESE CONCRETE TOMBS

WE BUILT THE CAGES

WE JOINED THE CHAINS

NOW WE LIE MOTIONLESS

THESE CITIES - OUR GRAVES

 

LIKE THE CROSSES CEMENTED TO THE HILLSIDE

STILL DATED BUT HERE AFTER ALL THIS TIME

A REMINDER OF THE DISEASE 

THAT STILL FLOWS LIKE BLOOD

THROUGH THESE STREETS

 

PLEASE BELIEVE YOU'RE A PART OF THIS

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

I DON'T BLAME THE SYMPTOMS

I BLAME THE CAUSE

AND IT'S IN OUR FOUNDATIONS

IT LINES THESE HALLS

I DON'T BLAME THE SYMPTOMS

I BLAME THE DISEASE

IT'S BLINDING

IT'S DEAFENING

APATHY

 

MURDERER

HOW CAN YOU SLEEP?

PARASITE

DANCING ON OUR ASPHALT GRAVES

BLIND EYES TURNED BLACK

TASTE BURNT AWAY

NO SOUR TASTE IN

THESE CITIES - OUR GRAVES

 

LIKE THE CROSSES CEMENTED TO THE HILLSIDE

STILL DATED BUT HERE AFTER ALL THIS TIME

A REMINDER OF THE DISEASE

THAT STILL FLOWS LIKE BLOOD

THROUGH THESE STREETS

 

PLEASE BELIEVE YOU'RE A PART OF THIS

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

I DON'T BLAME THE SYMPTOMS

I BLAME THE CAUSE

AND IT'S IN OUR FOUNDATIONS

IT LINES THESE HALLS

I DON'T BLAME THE SYMPTOMS

I BLAME THE DISEASE

IT'S BLINDING

IT'S DEAFENING

APATHY

 

I'M NOT LOOKING FOR A SCAPEGOAT

I'M AS GUILTY AS ANYONE ELSE

BUT AT LEAST I'M FUCKING TRYING

"AT LEAST I'M FUCKING TRYING!"

 

I MADE MY CHOICES

AND I STILL BELIEVE

IN A LIFE LIVED STANDING…

 

I LIVE A LIFE OF SPITE

 

SO LET IT RAIN ON ME

SO LET IT RAIN ON ME

SO LET IT RAIN ON ME

We are all a part of the system that oppresses us - that creates and upholds the injustice and imbalance of the world - we actively participate, fund and support it. Every day we consume without thought and bite our tongues, we move as cogs in the machine. Every action has its consequence. By simply making an informed choice on which companies you spend your money on you can make a wealth of difference in the world...and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
