Exploiter 04:21
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

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

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

Badder Blood 02:15
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

Collapsing 01:55
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

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

about

More Gorgeous Chicago, Illinois

Clever, moody art-punks attempting to blend Killing Joke’s industrial goth stomp with Swervedriver’s dynamic shoegaze assault. They embrace jagged, damaged tones and textures without compromising their sophisticated pop sensibilities. The results are big, loud and tightly-wound noise-rock anthems. ... more
