about

A fair complaint about the refusal of change to the system that could make things better for everybody!! That gets swept under the carpet usually ending in direct action, heartache and frustration but sometimes a result you're content with.

lyrics

They're climbing a ladder
that reaches the gods,
although every rung is rotten
The people all follow
like blind hungry fools
humanity is forgotten
there's no treasures in heaven
no life on mars
at your feet the spiders are spinning
you can take all you need
and not plant any seeds
the currency of hate is winning

There is no place in compassion
for money and power
hierarchy and the crown
so bring your matches
your axe and your teeth
and bring this system down

the smokescreen will cloak
as the people all choke
on the lives that they aspire to own
whispers of resistance
wash up on the shores
can we not get blood from this stone
this stone is a weapon
this stone is a tool
this stone is a path and a voice
pushed into corners
and cornered in darkness
arrogant ignorant choice..

(chorus)
END.
