Everyone is sick Of so called politics They see it as nothing more Than fodder for a clique And the virus infects The Right and the Left Trying to sell content With the Intent to divide And what is left Beyond the mess A populace who trusts nothing But needs something to believe So they invent Bending all the facts Trying to make sense Of the lives that they lead They can't trust the facts They see them as Ads For a way of life thats mindcontrol For indoctrination So they turn to fear And skepticism Basing their beliefs on what They imagine at their worst And then it hits The moment of crisis A gunman or a riot mob To take it all down Who lost their shit And is now dedicated Pinning their hope for life On This faulty truth I cannot watch this anymore The plot isn't even plausible

Burning 02:25
Alright? Does it get better? Does better exist? This cannot be everything Everything I know What I thought was behind me Comes back to knock on my door Comes back to challenge me Comes back to blacken up my life And I won't fall behind I won't give it my time Just cuz a thing exists Doesn't mean it has to be in my life Didn't I feel better? Just a few weeks ago? Didn't I see something? Something new? Something with a promise? Something to make me better? Cuz now I'm just standing here, And baby, it's just all me It's all me And it can be hard to see What I thought was something Is the same old thing Burning inside me

The Same 02:21
When we were young We fought against everything A world based in hypocrisy And now we are old And everything that I felt Still fuels every part of me Its still the same Its still the same in me Its still burns inside of me Its still the same Its still the same in me Its still burns inside of me When we were kids They told us one day we would accept What we could not begin to believe And as we grew old We saw some of the folks we were with Give in to that simplicity Its still the same Its still the same in me Its still burns inside of me Its still the same Its still the same in me Its still burns inside of me And with experience some things have changed I see the layers of complication The complexity of the world as it exists But i still I know whats good Still I know whats right And now we are old And all the things we fought for Are pieces of a history And now they are young And they walk from where we walked To carry on the same fights we fought And then they are old And everything that is true They teach their young Cuz it holds the same, the same value

Commonwealth 01:25
A tragic history Of this commonwealth Of this city Condensed into a rage Condemned by skin Alienated from culture This city is burning As a lampost for all that will follow Our forefathers knew The truth of slavery The truth about oppression The truth about race That its the first card to be played For economic control By the state So we can't stand by We can't defend those lies When lives are being taken By fear and prejudice We can't be equal When some are held down We can't call it equal When some are shot dead in the street So with this song Please hear our voice Allied in this fight Allied for a better world

about

A song about conspiracy bullshit, a song about coping with chronic issues, both mental and physical, a song about being old and still giving a fuck, and a song in support of BLM, from a RVA perspective. Also, Columbus sinking in the fucking lake on the cover. What's not to love? Our first 7".
