Troubled 03:46
When you wait for consent Not for me to fight you off When you disregard her dress And hold account for your own thoughts When those she knows the most Give her the least to fear When the only cause is rapists And victim blaming disappears When we start intervening And you check your privilege Then I’ll stop screaming When she can speak her mind Without an acid burn When the rules on my body and life Are only my concern When the honour’s in her courage Not being killed as property When it’s not just “the way it is” So we can live strong and free Is it too much trouble for you to change? Is it too much trouble to challenge others? Your inconvenience aside, This defines our lives. We’re troubled. So we’ll be troublesome. To live free and safe Rule our own lives and satiate Our potential, our will Our right to fight (to grow, to be) So we fight still. Go! Be troublesome Until we’re intervening And you check your privilege Then I’ll stop screaming
Forging On 02:45
Agonise future aberrations Settle more than setting goals We reach, falling into the dark Drag ourselves over coals We lose like we’ll lose every time Give in before giving more Miss out while missing the point Of why we tried at all Each fault does not mean failure It’s my success at forging on Your outcomes don’t define me If patience is a virtue I need to make it mine Like the surging water Grinds rock over time I choose to last the journey Climbing from sit to stand I learned from every struggle When each day is an ordeal The waves keep crashing to shore My gain is each stroke on the tide Every whitewashed breath restored And I keep rising up for more I’m not held down now Because I’m not defeated So don’t you underestimate my will I adapt and through perseverance I’m stronger still
Avalanche 01:41
This rage builds like an avalanche Pressures rise before the storm This calloused world will force the brightest stars to dull And the strongest hearts to conform Compassion seen as weakness A kindness to exploit This rage builds like an avalanche See my calm before the storm I know I’m not alone Snowflakes pressured into icy boulders All it takes is our one strong voice To bring the avalanche
The Collapse 03:10
The doors opened Fate rushed before me As the wall closed down On the lives of three Unrecognisable Bodies crumbled Drowned from a wave of stone The weight of greed’s trash heap This cold harsh wind blows I set my sails This cold harsh wind blows I lift my wings Breathing gravel And blinking salty dust We tore our hands Throwing off each deadly brick As sure as hope As dark as their pooling blood I’m not the same Trauma makes change We’re dead. We’re scared. We’re sick. But then A proclamation – “I subsist” Flashbacks from rubble One arm clawed through One last clutch at light We exist One fate, One try, One choice – defy Let go and live
I saw you beat her I saw you shake her I saw you spit and deprive her soul You tried to maim her Lived to degrade her Dictate her life to make you feel in control I saw you bruise her Watched you abuse her Saw all your shame manifest in her screams You see me grow up Watch as I move on And you expect the same for me Never again To tragedy from trust Ignored for long enough Harmed twice – once by the tyrant And again, by this city’s silence As a child I saw your fists and ran away I dropped and hid behind that wretched wall But it wasn’t you I feared or hated that day It was your culture that thrives on my being controlled Never again When we avert our eyes We’re all complicit in Everything our painful silence hides To tragedy from trust Ignored for long enough End this city’s silence
Old Roots 01:52
Iron String 03:47
We are the ones With more at stake And nothing to lose But the futures we’d make Time on our hands Not on our side A world set to burn By those who’ve not tried We know the risks No compromise Our vision is greater Together we rise Hands in the dirt Not in the air Creating a world That others won’t dare We find a void to fill A new idea to will An energy we feed The community we need Sift through the ruins Collect remains From the roots grow ideas Motivation for change Stone by stone Foundations set We build the bridges And live out of step This is our refuge Wide open doors Each to their own With a vital cause Self-liberation A better life By ourselves, for ourselves DIY Self-reliance in defiance Of a world that drags us down Independent, we defend it From the dollar, from the pseudo crown We empower those who cower From being made with another’s clay We determine victors from vermin Honour those living their own way “Trust yourself – every heart vibrates to that iron string” Nothing was ever gained From holding back
Rapture 02:36
Love to believe in a god you can’t see Ignore the world changing before you Denying the science of life dying beside us While pride and greed are a virtue What will be gained when nothing remains Resources you rape reject us This planet adapts, its forces react Then we see how we infect us The self-fulfilling prophecy Of man striving for divinity No grasp on this reality Get on your knees and look through the trees Emptiness burns in your eye All you’ll have left is a pile of debt Since all you banked on died Look to the skies, pray through your lies For a heaven lying in wait Your paradise here destroyed by fear Hell on earth is what you create Nature is the rapture that wipes this world clean. Rains of ash. Burning skies. Drowned lands. Choking cries. Wipe this world clean.
All of my trust in you dies in time Brainwashed out all your sense No excuse for the consequence Blind faith hides you from the truth When unearned trust defies all proof All reason lost You honour him despite the cost Fear of god profound My screams don’t make a sound Whose shame is this? Mine for seeking justice? Or his or yours For keeping it behind closed doors When you protect Him, it’s me you both neglect Defend a smile, Not the welfare of your own child We can’t speak out In case the truth incites doubt Then you question why I refuse to look you in the eye Did you ever wonder What else he could have done to us With your blessing With your blessing My faith is gone With your blessing His crusade goes on
Barbarian 02:38
Sucker for your leader, hooked in Believing false constructs as doctrine Hatred and death based on fiction Perpetuate the pain and friction Are you human or a walking flag? Your ignorance is a waste of that body bag One dead mind costs a million bodies more As the cost of war Losing neighbours to your patriot’s mast By closing your mind you’re losing it fast The young can’t say where they’re from or where they stand Before they’re blasted from their mother’s hands No borders. No pride. No masters. No lies. Barbarian
New Seeds 04:06
Paralysing doubt and shame Tension rising, distorts the brain Quickened breathing, panic builds Shaking, reeling, hot sweats run chilled These walls may feel like they’re closing in But the horizon is ever growing This world may feel like a dying rock But new seeds are ever sowing Terrorising the inner self Not prioritising happiness and health Addressing ailments, every cut and cold Ignoring the one that makes us whole No matter how dark it gets I need to know it’s not just me in this So when I can’t see the light I’ll remember it exists Learned to believe that the sky may fall The world against me beyond my door The growing dread tells me to hide away But I’ll take control – I won’t be afraid of today
