Biography

Not to be confused with Noam Chomsky’s speech “Class War: The attack on the Working People,” The Class War exhibits an energy driven by awareness and honesty. There music can be defined by the united themes and quick, to the point songs, which occur like explosions of passion.
The ironic mock-anthem “Don’t Forget I’m American” embraces an idea of American life as a mask of national pride, as its air of supremacy quickly vocalizes the antipathy of artists in an environment where art is replaced by the novelty of money and ambition.
On the other hand, the title track of the EP “A Crack In The Mask” employs the theme of the mask as the web of images that obstruct us from viewing objects as they exist. The last lines of the song “we want our minds back, give us our minds back” occurs as a cascade of musical and melodic violence, where for a moment one is called to look beyond what is presented and define the substance from the shadow.
The raw vigor and simple beauty of a band that is consistent with its methods and variations of song structures, as well as the specific modes of history and lyricism of its themes, paint the image of The Class War that is emblematic of a band that endures to care what they say, and how they say it.

Lyrics

Don't Forget I'm American

Written By: The Class War [Giorgio Russo]

come with your love and I'll spit in your face
because pride is all that matters to me in this day and age
capital gain and fame and the conquest for making a name
I am rising to the top of the chain

I see all the world
all the pretty pretty girls
are they there for me
It is all that I believe
I can rule the world with an iron hand
Don't Forget I'm American

If i can get some thing
I can get off I can get up and face the day
it's ok paper faces on parade
join in the masquerade
ride the river to my lake of darkness

I see all the world
all the pretty pretty girls
are they there for me
It is all that I believe
I can rule the world with an iron hand
Don't Forget I'm American
