about

demo version of a new song from an upcoming 7" on Contra Records and Longshot Music.

lyrics

You fool yourself into thinking
That everything's alright
Look around it's plain to see
The future ain't so bright
You say I'm being negative
Call me a pessimist
But in this ugly world everyone is out for self
That's just the way it is

On every city block at night
The streets are dark and cold
Some have got nothing left to lose
When they're broke and on the dole
Selling shit on the corner
And fighting with more than fists
They know no other way
They've got no other means
That's just the way it is

But no one wants to know
No one cares
Instead of reaching out
They stand and stare
The TV numbs their brain
With the daily news
While their kids escape reality
With drugs and booze
