Biography

"But with all the controls of power and punishment, enticements and concessions, diversions and decoys, operating throughout the history of the country, the Establishment has been unable to keep itself secure from revolt. Every time it looked as if it had succeeded, the very people it thought seduced or subdued, stirred and rose. Blacks, cajoled by Supreme Court decisions and congressional statutes, rebelled. Women, wooed and ignored, romanticized and mistreated, rebelled. Indians, thought dead, reappeared, defiant. Young people, despite lures of career and comfort, defected. Working people, thought soothed by reforms, regulated by law, kept within bounds by their own unions, went on strike. Government intellectuals, pledged to secrecy, began giving away secrets. Priests turned from piety to protest...To recall this is to remind people of what the Establishment would like them to forget--the enormous capacity of apparently helpless people to resist, of apparently contended people to demand change. To uncover such history is to find a powerful human impulse to assert one's humanity. It is to hold out, even in times of deep pessimism, the possibilty of surprise"

Lyrics

Written By: the exelar

*the new national anthem

we’re not children
like you were children
take us, away
so you provide, do you decide who is alive?

*something in the water

malnutrition
vitamin deficiency
reverse evolution
still-life photography

one solution
for the nine month disease
execution
release the army

*costume party

spent my days repeating your name to no avail
every second thinking of you to no avail
healed my wounds but left my scars
take my scars

*weather and volcanoes

sharpening pencils is sharpening minds
keep safe distance from ink well tall tales
pledge your allegiance to the cum rag of rapists
manufacture the new slave mind
sharpening pencils is sharpening minds
take aim and fire white wash lies
never forget what you’re taught

*british smile

mount up your high horse and ride
your poison runs through the veins of the earth
turn your eyes to the sky
watch the souls of your victims fly
tell your sons and daughters
from the blood in the stables
and the ashes on the lawn we will rise
on your knees when my horse rides

*ode to the flag

hang no more thy blasted flag of shame
it’s rein ended when hugo twisted
it’s bloody parts to shreds
let america tell in it’s mournful tones
the sordid shame of man

*you’re not being blacklisted, asshole…you’re being attacked for boring the fuck out of
everyone

all means, no end
where’s the fucking hope in selling papers to empty faces
the end is the means
it means nothing

*the moment redux

rescuing heavy dreams from the gut of an aging kid
and a mind reluctant to the impossibility of the heart
god can’t see it the cops can’t stop it and everyone’s waiting

NEW SONGS:

*non-fiction

it’s about time I recognized myself as
someone who will change the world

*bait/switch

your truth won’t set me free
I know the names of the chains on me

*the summer’s worst horror movie

this game is over, there’s no more time to play
this game is over, there’s no one left to play
never again, one day, some day
our father creates these heathens, hallowed be thy shame

*firing squad

if they put me in front of the firing squad the bullets would bounce
right off
oh what I’d give to be eighteen again, believed I was invincible

Motherland vs. Fatherland

why do all these symbols we swoon over and die for squelch us like
any other?
what makes you think our 'good cause' can't lose?
mother. father. child kills them both.

BAIT & SWITCH
Your truth won't set me free, I know the names of the chains on me,
bait &
switch

FIGHT THE DRAGON
never surrender yourself to the dream

LINES ON PAPER
one day our enemies will fall,borders will be lines drawn on paper,
we'll chase
the cops like criminals from their homes,no longer working until
we're
cancer,we'll burn all the tav.. screens that represent your culture,
one day our
enemies will fall,borders will be lines drawn on paper,we'll chase
the cops like
criminals from their homes,no longer working until we're cancer,
the flags are
burning the children are dancing.

WITNESS RELOCATION PROGRAM
bargaining for continents with smallpox and empty promises,bury
the american
heart on wall street under the parking lots,our forefathers founded
the birth of
a nation to program witness relocation,reparations in casino
tokens,give thanks
for all you've stolen,give thanks for the hearts you've broken land of
the free
graves of the brave.

A BRITISH SMILE
mount up your high horse and ride,your poison runs through the
veins of the
earth turn your eyes to the sky watch the souls of your victims
fly,tell your
sons and daughters,from the blood in the stables and the ashes on
the lawn,we
will risen your knees when my horse rides.

WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT ME IS I LIKE WEATHER AND VOLCANOES
sharpening pencils is sharpening minds,keep safe distance from
inkwell tall
tales,pledge your allegiance to the cum rags of rapist manufacture
the new
slave mid take aim and fire white wash lies, never forget what
you're taught.

Black teenagers are not moving targets

In the dark alleys
Of the urban
Reservations
Once the sun has set

The most feared killers
In “the hood”
Patrol in their sets
Rolling atop donated cars
Shot guns in the back
and government issued pistols
On each members hip

You won’t hear the screams
But you’ll hear the shots ring out

Leaving blood to flow
from a teenaged sneaker
To stain rooftop asphalt
children Running for their lives
the seargent takes them down

No trials

No hearings
Without warning
These mass murderes
prowl the ghetto streets
behind banners of protection
and servitude to the weak
they leave a trail as they go
of mothers screaming

“Justice for my fallen son.”

DEAD HEROES

Impostors!

Rally troops with poisoned tounges
A promise of protection traded for peasants blood

Collected by your brainwashed working class sons
Drow
