about

From the debut album "My Country"released September 2nd, 2014.

lyrics

My country’s fast asleep

and they don’t notice higher power as they beat

The brains of anyone

who guides the flow of capital with downward thumbs

back to those hands of yours

that’s where they took it from



And we won’t get the most out of life til they let go

As long as they detest and despise our human souls

look out below

oh oh oh mhm



Cause if it was up to you and me

We’d bring administration down to their knees

And make them swear to God

That we are gonna be their main concern and money’s not

Cause in the end it all will burn and they will rot.



You and me, we get the most out of life when we let go

As long as we detest and despise one human soul

look out below

oh oh oh mhm



But my country’s fast asleep

and as we all are eulogized

the price tags bleed.
