Track Name: Problems With Pleasure
we've settled for the plastic future
scabbed knees, still believing in counterculture
in a life outside
the great divide, the better side
emancipation as the rising tide
or just a place to hide

whoever seeks soul instead of gold
joy not pleasure
upon coming home
whoever dances the night away
wakes to the trivial next day

we think that we might have a future
still believing in counterculture
only privilege can buy
a life outside
commodified
liberation as the rising tide
or just a place to hide


whoever seeks soul instead of gold
joy not pleasure
upon coming home
whoever dances the night away
wakes to the trivial next day
Track Name: Any City's Song
anytime you hear me sing that song
you know it's been too long
phases outphased
out of business, numbered days

some say we gentrify
on movements we can't rely
a generation of drunken denial
when it's just the years gone by
nothing but years gone by

no more you don't belong
no more time to feel wrong
resign from the designated
this is any city's song

is it true we always leave a trace
wear our past with grace
wildest theories
we need to keep them
untamed

some say you can't rely
on movements that gentrify
a generation of drunken denial
while the years, they just go by

no more you don't belong
no more time to feel wrong
resign from the designated
this is any city's song
Track Name: Road Rash
they say that the world keeps turning
there's no past tense of learning
drop out of common knowledge
get used to the smell of piss and gasoline

you'll never find that better day
have the heart to break away
you'll never find that better day
on our way out of society
we'll burn the love we got for free
burn out, leave nothing to economy

so you're on the road
far away from home
so many faces, you say they leave you cold
just like that everlasting whisky
your story's getting old

you'll never find that better day
have the heart to break away
you'll never find that better day
on our way out of society
we'll burn the love we got for free
burn out, leave nothing to economy
Track Name: Nazi Scum Has Gotta Die
what is wrong
it's no surprise
their attitude is your demise
that what is gone
has been living on
has been living on for way too long

your hope is bought
your struggle sold
out and back to you in disguise
what you resist
takes lives to exist
is survived by chance
still going strong

the past keeps living on for way too long
it's not history if we can't learn
tables won't turn while bridges still burn
xenophobic system sits and waits
till negligence disseminates
Track Name: A Scene Less Sinister
it's the confusion of the illusion that we're all gonna be together forever

what is a place you like to spend time at?
say who, what, which and where
give a description, create a context
cause all we're doing is setting the scene

say who, what, which
say who, what, which and where
say Hugo Ball, say Hugo Ball
say Hugo Ball and Baudelaire

cause all we're doing is setting the scene
why is it that you like this scene?

it gave me a reason to raise my voice
i think that's basically why i like to go there
be part of the show there
it gave me illusion of choice
i think that's basically why i like to go there
get in the know there
Track Name: Picture Perfect Propaganda
been standing in line
for the longest time
forgot there's not just one war
but every day one more
the only thing we share
are screenshots of empty thoughts
in waves trending, tidal, viral

some years ago
some reasons to riot
now the new loud is forever quiet
all you get is desensitized
to a freedom in disguise

survival at the cost of alienation

put a Starbucks-ripoff on my street
give me a week
then that's where i'll work
that's where i'll eat
in defeat

some years ago
some reasons to riot
now the new loud is forever quiet
all you get is desensitized
to a freedom in disguise
Track Name: Reclaim The Night
it seems you've been down every street
how they say – you stood on your own damn feet
got the run-down, running from that thief
the ruler of the night – is he just on your mind
never fall behind, the so-called other kind
behind the next tree, there just might be
another case of patriarchy

I won't look up to you
reclaim the night, give me something new
gimme something new gimme something new
give me a darkness i can see right through

I see right through you

you danced to that beat
were swept off your feet
on your way home
you wanted to be alone
the ruler of the night
is he just on your mind?
never fall behind - what you can't see

I don't dress up for you
i'm asking for it - tell me something new
tell me something new, tell me something new
give me a darkness i can see right through
Track Name: No More (Minimum Wage Medley)
they tell you to go
but you won't
they want you to know
but you don't
duties kicking at the door
you just don't open anymore

you've got three jobs
but you're poor
story ends, face down on the shopfloor
just leaves you stronger than before

dare you to ask for more
don't open that door anymore

you buy your cage over the counter
you play your cards under the table
they define your rage
by the price you pay

no more
don't open that door anymore
no more
Track Name: Silent Scapegoats
it's not just a figure of speech
i'm not gonna repeat
dismantle the phrases you teach
not gonna bow in defeat

It's not just a hole in the ground
it's where the unsung truth is drowned
the triumph of bureaucracy:
voices silenced silently

not gonna bow in defeat
not gonna make your ends meet

burning houses, flowers line the road
just a another incident, we're told
while conservatives align
racism unfolds in due time

not gonna bow in defeat
not gonna make your ends meet
Track Name: Shake It Off
turn it off
same old song
i keep singing along, it's wrong
all i ever wanted to be
free from those hetero-policies
their laws of duality
the knife of dichotomy
i wanna shake it off

are you with me or are you free
am i with you or against me
a party of two
or maybe three
love is not possession
you can't own me

cut me pieces from your past
give back that bakery of jealousy
i don't want to save the best for last
give back that bakery of jealousy

sign me off, burn that lease
the restless ownership of thieves
how can we ever learn to be
paperplanes of selfsufficiency

cut me pieces from your past
give back that bakery of jealousy
i don't want to save the best for last
live on that dead end street of jealousy
i wanna shake it off so we can make it last
Track Name: A Toast To Revolutionary Souls
you just can't dance to these songs playing on repeat
spent all you had but skipped the beat
we feel the lack of something in everything
we're haunted by the ghost of possibilities
be it freedom or movement or speech
honesty or just the friendship that sets you free

shortage, fault, defficiency
in every single one of my worlds
and i can't break free
from lack of immediacy
there's only one world i can change
starts with you and me

we feel the lack of something in everything
we're haunted by constrictive categories
be it class, gender, or nationality
or just the person you'll never be

like a weapon to a crime
we stand together, fall in line
and the feeling of passing time
is just the moment that isn't mine
it's never mine
and the hands we held
were the ones to pull us apart
and the nights we shared
felt like tomorrow'd never start
we couldn't start again
start again
