Kyoto Now!

Lyrics | Track Details

it's a matter of prescience but not the science fiction kind it's all about ignorance, and greed, and miracles for the blind the media parading, disjointed politics founded on petrochemical plunder and we're its hostages

if you stand to reason you're in the game the rules
might be elusive but our pieces are the same
you know if one goes down we all go down as
well the balance is precarious as anyone can tell
this world's going to hell

Don't allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact its price Kyoto now! We can't do nothing and think someone else will make it right you might now think it matters now but what if you are worn you might not think there's any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song but the way it is cannot persist for long, a brutal sun is rising on our sick horizon it's in the way we live our lives exactly like the double edge of a cold familiar knife and supremacy weighs heavy on the day it's never really what you own but what you threw away and how much did you pay? in your dreams you saw a steady state a bounty for eternity

silent screams
but now the wisdom that sustains us all is in full retreat
DON'T allow this mythologic hopeful monster isn't worth the risk Kyoto now!
We can't have vision for the future if it can't be fixed

We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives
Hand in hand
The arid torpor of inaction will be our demise
