Mixed and produced by J. Robbins
Mastered by Dylan Rees at Silver Fox Studio in Columbus OH.


Do you think because we're white we're yr friends?
We're not even yr allies.
We are yr enemies

Blind to yr own privilege
Let me use mine to call you out
Yr a racist, a coward
hiding behind a badge, a collar,
bullshit law
Bullshit laws

Oh yeah, the end is neigh
Who knows, maybe the uprising erupts tonight?

Do you think because we're born here
we're beholden to some nationalist duty?
We're not patriots
Fuck yr soapbox
Yr a murderer, a thief
Hiding behind a bomb, a drone
bullshit war
Bullshit wars

Oh yeah, the end is neigh
Who knows, maybe the revolution envelops tonight?
