by Strike a Match

We will strike a match against capitalism You want a free market, we want a free world in the ashes of yours We will strike a match against speciesism Defend the life force of those tortured behind closed doors We will strike a match against patriarchy Won’t participate in your culture of rape, won’t fight your wars We will strike a match against patriotism Our flag is black like the ashes of yours Strike a match We will strike a match for what hasn´t been yet, yet must be: A world where everyone and everything is free
1000 Eyes 02:15
Watch out you're being watched Watch out! Watch out! By 1000 eyes 1000 eyes Who control, intimidate and dominate Can they detect a heart about to detonate? Can they detect me?
Soaking up so-called pleasures with a numb nod of approval See through them, see through them yet you fear their removal Dead Time – dead time – dead time In the living room What you can’t live without is killing you from within
You don’t have to fuck You don’t have to fuck You don’t have to fuck You don’t have to fuck People over to survive You don’t have to (Thank you, Seth Tobocman)
Hush little baby. don’t you cry Suck on this and be pacified Hush little kid, the TV’s on Sit down, shut up till your mind is gone Hush little youngster. go get high It will ease your pain and the swallowing of the lie: Hush little wage slave, don’t wage war Just work more, you’ll get all you wish for Sleepers... awake! Hush little oldster Lay down and die Too late to live now We have bled you dry Sleepers... awake! Before it’s too late
We are all undesirable elements We are all matter out of place We are not your useful instruments We are the spots you want to erase Let’s be Human Beings We are the imperiled, the imperfect The imprisoned, the impatient, the impure We are not afraid to be insecure Let’s be Human Beings We are not afraid In our hearts we carry A new world
