1.
Tearful eyes Reflect a city in flames A land forgotten, forsaken As if the dead have no name Torn to shreds by the jaws of war Teeth tear family from home Tearing mother from child Ripping the flesh from bone What do you gain? To watch them suffer? Seeking solace Within a selfish fortress No borders No fences No walls nor flags No borders No fences No walls No fucking flags
2.
Every drop of fascist blood spilled is a tribute A notch upon the post of progress Our days of nonviolence far within the past The time has come, the time is now Hatred forged by flames of ignorance False supremacy, foolish pride They call for war So war we wage Buried prey beneath the soil Salting every grave No tolerance No compromise Allowing poison to be preached Like venom spilled from mouths of snakes Every spark of rhetoric must be extinguished Threats to humanity’s existence Validation given by those in power We must be bystanders no longer
3.
Anthropocene 02:34
Endless trails of devastation Constant infliction of irreparable harm Unsustainable acts of exploitation Time to stand up and demand that they disarm Scorched earth holds no life Barren soil bares no fruit Mother Earth shall be avenged With bloodied hands that hold the truth Seas seethe black with oil Skies loom gray with ash Extinction swiftly rises In the wake of shadows cast The only way to save us from our destruction Is our demise Ecocide Global homicide You’ll soon have nothing left To fucking patronize
4.
Praying For Day Light fades into looming blackness Twilight sounds the alarm in my chest Sunset rescinds any sense of safety Footsteps quicken, pulse follows suit Dull glow of streetlight Illuminating sentries Offerings of momentary sanctuary Merely false reprieve Metal digging into palms Improvised weaponry Fear tracked by wolves Beasts with intent to feed Panic settles deep within my bones Putting forth a face of stone Paranoid courses in these veins But the road ahead still remains Darkness is a death sentence Eluding the crosshairs of violence And I still pray for daylight Though it offers no relief
5.
Monuments 03:50
We must dismantle this feeble veil of justice Dangling keys of freedom Brown bodies rot in cells, white men roam free Perpetuating this vicious cycle Privatized for profit Lining their fucking pockets While offering no solution But end of days in isolation Feeding on oppression Exploiting the impoverished Criminality is racialized Defining legality to target Brick by brick Constructing monuments Conditions produced by capitalism Sending the lower class to prisons No concern of social welfare Preserving social control Sustained by state repression Satiating steel cages Overcrowded and inhumane Human rights exchanged for confinement Brick by brick Constructing monuments Of punishment

Heavy Chains 03:00
I am regret personified A cancer to purge if you wish to survive The relentless weight of heavy chains Persistent shackles Perceived abandonment, the cutting blade To the fraying ties that bind a fragile mind Overcome with guilt And endless apologies Never ending chaos Constant instability Past riddled with burned bridged And I still can’t exhale the smoke from my lungs Is this a life worth living? Existing in eternal hell Fragmented remnants of identity Ingrained distrust And frantic desperation This life is hell
8.
Decriminalize We seek no sympathy For obtaining stability in masculine society We seek no fucking rescue From being the supply to your demand Your 9 to 5 dignity won’t save me Shamed for meeting your desires Stroking your ego with your savior complex This patriarchal stigma, so fucking tired This is no “modern day slave trade,” Robbed of work and wage This is no way to keep our streets safe Robbed of rights and wage We never asked to be saved You’re no fucking savior
