I'll be the self determined damned before the blessed lump of clay. I'll be the self reliant idiot before the learned led astray. I'll be the unroly overreactor before the smiling unaffected. I'll be the laughing-stock revolutionary before the dignified slave. I demand solidarity. This is a call to arms. But you refuse to grow. We've lost faith in overthrow, in the power to resist, in the strenght to assist, in the importance of the self. Open your eyes, heteronome…our mother freedom is calling us home to civility. You will die the everyman. And although you will die, I will simply end. Call me status quomophobic, but I'm not dazzaled by your order. I'm not impressed by amenities…I will be governed internally.

    General Commentthese lyrics fucking rule!!!!! this is our revolution! this is our destiny! we must never forget that hardcore is a form of protest. it is selfdestroying. when we have nothing to protest against anymore, hardcore will cease to be. still, this should not saddened of worry anyone for two reasons. first: when the reasons of protest are gone, what is there to be saddened or worried about? second: (for the die hard hardcore lovers n such jaddajadda ...) humanity is so stupid, selfish and ignorant of other emotions or even life, that protest will live as long as humans. yeah.
