A strung out DJ spins free of alarm Like a violent kick drum Deadbeats push the rohypnol hard Dosing with Western excess Splayed and writhe on the ground Oblivious to dissent Blood lust of a militant crowd Sweltering Indo nights Someone has to pay the price Just some Aussie kids overseas They don’t really know anything Extremes pray to the God of East Praying for divine release From the squalor of these Eastern slums They don’t really know anything Tragically The irony stands all alone “peace” you seek in blood of the meek common sounds of mourning crowds allies are dead families see red suicide bombs are modern psalms A strung out DJ painted in pink mist from the bombers pallet strapped to a militant's chest Like a violent kick drum Shock wave hits the stage Dance to a deadly rhythm Dance with a mind enslaved Sweltering Indo nights Someone has to pay the price Just some Aussie kids overseas They don’t really know anything Extremes pray to the God of East Praying for divine release From the squalor of these Eastern slums They don’t really know anything Tragically Irony comes alone “peace” you seek in blood of the meek comes at a price in wailing sounds of mourning crowds and reddened eyes

about

Proceeds from this compilation donated to
Black Lives Matter (blacklivesmatter.com)
Black Lives Matter Toronto (blacklivesmatter.ca)
The Black Solidarity Fund Canada (www.canadahelps.org/en/black-solidarity-fund/)
*Our donation to this fund was matched by a corporate sponsor*

There's a common saying that goes back centuries which states that evil prevails when good people do nothing.
We're witnessing the culmination of years of outrage at a lack of justice as it spills out into the city streets.
Things have to change.
We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, and we step aside so that their voice may be more clearly heard.

Power to the people.

Cover art features an iconic image of Tommie Smith from the 1968 Olympic Games, raising a black gloved fist on the medal podium while receiving his gold medal for the 200 metre dash.
