Track Name: Exploiter
I just can't get away
And I don't know where to begin
I've got a worm for a toe
And I've got a toe for a fin

The thing that put me here
Manifested with a single touch
Still got a worm for a toe
And now I got a god for a crutch

Exploiter
Exploiter knows you by name
Exploiter got no shame
Exploiter
Track Name: The Chosen One
In the book of Exodus
Read the words of Adonai
As they were told to Moses
From a bush on Mount Sinai

How did he speak to god?
How did he know his love?
Was he the chosen one?
Or was he just fucked up?
Moses had the best drugs

It all happened on Mount Horeb
According to Deuteronomy
Then Moses parted the sea of red
And the Israelites were free
Track Name: Desperate Times
This is a fucked up place filled with demagogues
Exploiting ignorance in the name of god
They are fascists and bigots lying through their teeth
Manufacturing wars 'cause they can't leverage peace

And what motivates them? Power and money
But who's voting for them? Don't you look at me
We've had enough of your shit and this is where it ends
Desperate times they call for desperate acts of violence

I'm not saying that you should
But I understand why you would
No I would never encourage homicide
But some people deserve to die

Fuck you

I may be blinded by rage but I'm still able to see
How they're fracturing our society
With distraction, scare tactics, fear-mongering
They point their fat fucking fingers at minorities

And the immigrants, let me hear you sing
And the lower class, yeah you know me
Can we stop all the corruption in our government?
Desperate times they call for desperate acts of violence

I'm not saying that you should
But I understand why you would
No I would never encourage homicide
But some people deserve to die

I was a pacifist but now I'm ready to cross that line
But who am I to decide? I'm living a lie

I'm not saying that you should
But I can understand why you would
No I would never encourage homicide
But some people deserve to die
And I am ready to cross that line
Time for these motherfuckers to resign
And I will never go down without a fight
It's them or me tonight
Track Name: Badder Blood
We stripped the scene right down to it's core
And that core was hard but hollow
What do you expect from kids these days?
Instant commodification is a hard act to follow

Who does Rihanna think she's fooling?
Just who the fuck does Taylor Swift really think she's fooling?
They're weird and alternative and manicured and fabricated
But I suppose Spotify are the ones stealing, good god

Bad blood flows through my veins, makes me insane
Maintain healthy disdain, today I am post-everything
She's got a point, though
Because nothing is free or interesting
So please take our money so we can consume everything

Now listen, we just want to make art and get laid
It's all about the music for now
But at what point will we start to get
Paid for our songs, while we are young?
What's wrong? We don't belong? C'mon, we'll play for anyone
Track Name: Collapsing
There's no use trying to make a living
The industry is collapsing

What could possibly be more subjective than art?
You can't even conceive the song in my heart
Track Name: Went and Fooled Myself Again
I'm so good at playing pretend
I went and fooled myself again
I'm so good at keeping it real
I just don't think, I just don't feel

Unconscious consortium
Active moratorium
Prefrontal lobotomy
I gotta get me one
