Track Name: Defeat / Repeat
A line of fascists with torch and flag
A past retells itself but lessons lag
Neon neos illuminate
Our complacency
Too little too late

If we let this get out of hand
We don’t stand a chance

History repeats itself. Defeats itself.

What was that world war for?

When the last day comes and you look back
Will it be sense or hope you lacked
Final outcome of your days combined
Did you evolve or get stuck behind

If we let this get out of hand
We don’t stand a chance

History repeats itself. Defeats itself.

The line is drawn in sand

Will you offer harm or a hand?
In the end we either kneel or stand
Track Name: Holler
Foot steps. Heavy breath. Side eye. Watching me walk by.
Move close. Hide most. Slide behind. I’m blind and confined.

Streetside predator
Trap me on my own path
Demand attention
Is the world not enough?
Expect me to smile
Despite fear, lost control
Delight in power denied
And the safety you stole.

Foot steps. Heavy breath. Side eye. I watch you walk by.

You think you’ll get it all
You have some right to me
That I’ll stumble and fall
You’ll bring me to my knees
What if my knee strikes up
What if the prey bites back
What if I stand my ground
What if the cat gets scratched, clawed, bit, mawled.

There is no compliment to be found in my dehumanisation.

Holler back. Holler back.
Track Name: Lessons Earned
Another day,
Another battle I’m compelled to win
Another way to lose it all
By never letting myself give an inch
And so I brace
Claw my way out to the very end
I’m worse for every effort
That I expend

Each time our pride’s wounded
We light the fuse
A quick reaction, when empathy’s refused
Fight, or flight – we don’t reflect
That victory still leaves a bruise

Tempers rage,
Frustration consuming me
Beat my head against the wall
Instead of breaking through so I can see

Another view,
Another way to live and learn
Stronger with a critical eye
And the insight that I’ve earned

Each time our pride’s wounded
We light the fuse
A quick reaction, when empathy’s refused
Fight, or flight – we don’t reflect
That victory still leaves a bruise

That which does not serve my growth
leaves me buried
Stuck in the ruins of bridges burned
by the fire in me

Lessons will be earned
Track Name: Bleed
Discussion ends when he says so
Negotiation starts when she says no

“Why wont you give me your time
Since when is ‘being nice’ a crime”
Denies autonomy, ignores her will
Oblivious, he keeps insisting still

He hunts the lamb twice shy
Deaf to the wolfpack’s cry
Contradiction in plain view
The taming of this shrew

We are the mirror
You can’t stand the sight of what you see
Entitled pride will smash the glass
Ego as fragile as the smallest shard
You blame us for every prick

Grind her down, wear away her dissent
Coercion is not consent

He hunts the lamb twice shy
Deaf to the wolfpack’s cry
The sheep’s clothing you’re beneath
Won't hide your teeth

BITE THIS

We are the mirror
You can’t stand the sight of what you see
Truth’s edge will shred your hands
The shame of how you’re taught to be a man
Yet you blame us for every cut

I pick my teeth with the splinters of your ego

Sit back and watch you bleed
