about

My roomie WAX and I wrote this in our backyard the other day. I came up with the guitar but didn't feel like I could get started.. I didn't know what to write about or how to get started. Within like two hours, we created this:

lyrics

All this that's been going on
It's hard to write a protest song
There's so many things to choose from

War corruption fear and greed
Tricks and lies and dirty deeds
Put em in a bucket and pick one

Oh Oh
There's too much blame to go around
Let's just tear shit down

We can start by blowing up these phones
And then we'll grab some traffic cones
Off into the streets we go
And film it with our secret drones

Oh Oh
There's too much hate to go around
Let's just tear shit down

I can't seem to pray this away
God are you still listening
I'm tired of trying to turn em all around
They're just gonna crash this shit down

I wanna bring that 60s touch
Like Dylan Joan Baez and such
But I ain't got the chords or notes
And no inspirational quotes

Oh Oh
There's too much pain to go around
Let's bring these fools down

At a certain point I just get tired
And I hope WE TELL THEM ALL "you're fired"
