Liner Notes: wpo.pw/wtr-notes

lyrics

Ruby sky and yellow haze
To go outside, what mask will we need today?
Feeling okay; gotta stay
In a peaceful state of mind

Don’t scroll the feed, but you can’t look away,
Draggin’ me forward kicking and screaming
–Oh no, is that a cough?
I hear a knock
It’s time to log off

Don’t have the energy to analyze
Can’t let that anxiety paralyze

We don’t need no thoughts and prayers
We just need to breathe the air
Smoke so thick but there’s a mission
To see in 20/20 vision

A beacon shining on the water
Got to find a light to guide her
Twenty-twenty, can’t escape it
Face it today and leave our tomorrow behind

It’s been four years since Saturday
I called my parents just to say
"Don’t waste a neuron on the news;”
It’s what we choose to give power to

Shock & awe come homeland “security”
Fake faces scream from the Uncanny Valley
The robots are racist
(There’s no justice)

Our voices raw, we shout into the void;
Can we find a better way to make some noise?

It’s not like anything is stopping
Air-conditioned grocery shopping
Windshield-wipe away the ashes
As the empire collapses

See the light, shining yet smothered
and find the strength to carry others
Spinning flame and reeling mind
Take cover today and leave your tomorrow behind

(’13) I remember we broke down and cried
(’14) When we first came to see what was hidden inside
(’15) For a time, folded our arms as we scoffed
(’16) Right before we mourned a future lost
(’17) Tried to fight the flood off every day
(’18) But the fires burned it all away
(’19) Nobody’s coming to save us
(2020) Stay inside ‘cause it’s all contagious

The boiling amber sun is yearning
Behind the mountains ever-burning
20twenty cyber fusion
Fight off every mass delusion

Patriotic Education
Fake your way through the next station
20:20 out past curfew
To see society born anew

Every day we go on living
Find a smile, keep on giving
Solidarity restoring
Because dystopia is boring

Fight for all the ones that died
We will resist this genocide
The hopelessness their only weapon;
But there are more of us than there are of them
No more of them;
There are more of us than there are of them.
