heard a song and i counted out loud the two-steps, the goose-steps back. back from square one, from where we'd just begun, and then it rang a bell-but is this kristallnacht or what the fuck is your plan? would you care to expand? and i don't deny the choice, but I defy you as the voice of anything i've stood for in these past 9 years, i've conquered the nurturing and found that anything worth conquering is powered, built and backed by fear, not by fact. and having said that... meat is still murder. dairy is still rape. and i'm still as stupid as anyone, but i know my mistakes. i have recognized one form of oppression, now i recognize the rest. and life's too short to make another's shorter.

    General Commenta fantastic fuck you to Earth Crisis, with the riff and layout of Nailing Descartes to the Wall. intelligent, hilarious, hard, and fast. "but is this kristallnacht or what the fuck is your plan?"

    General CommentI don't catch the Earth Crisis reference. What's the story?

    Why do people think he ditched these lyrics? I'm guessing he liked the ending and wanted something that went along with the theme instead of just saying "and having said that..." and then just go on to sing about a different topic (yeah I know it's RELATED, but...)

    General Commentisnt it great that you have to follow shitty bands who manage to do nothing outside the spectrum of rock music just to get the point of another song? its also great it took 5 years for them to respond to the Earth Crisis song. with that kind of dialog we might actually get to some non-punk issues before fossil fuel/civilization collapses.

    General CommentDear black lung fever, when you quit trying to make any rational sense out of the song "ruby soho." Next, you can start an essay for me on NOFXs "punk rock ethics and morale" Then when you're all done with that you should try reading propagandhi's lyrics.

    General CommentDear "Drewsus Christ"...I don't even know where to begin.
    1) Your post made no sense. It hovered between a stream of consciousness ramble and an eighth grade internet rant.
    2) You successfully avoided responding to a musing by erroneously construing a critique into some kind of diss and then went so far as to try your hand at a couple disses yourself.
    3) You fail. Crack your head on the concrete and open up your mind.
