Second single from the upcoming album "A Better Way" coming 7-10-20.

A scathing rebuke of longstanding institutional violence and corruption.

Lyric Video: youtu.be/a9TsUrZprC4


Hey profane pontiff, bring on disdain
The culprit isn’t even conscious of the pain
Pray for deliverance, just serve the time
And keep the suspect failing, clearly undefined
Oh no now this won’t do, you’d never hurt the youth
Spent your life to make a graveyard of the mind
Oh blessed devotee, corrupt human debris
It’s not your right to drive the innocent away

Don’t think for a second this battle can’t be won

I know my enemy – black collar crime
No love for enemy - you see black collar crime

Recite Hail Marys, full of disgrace
You never have to look the victims in the face
Protect the rapist, new Hunting Grounds
You turn a blind eye as you shuffle them around
Time for a change of course, we need a change of course
Time to consign you to the ash heap of the past
These blazing eyes you see, fits of acrimony
And when your kind is gone, we’ll proclaim holiday

Don’t think for a second this battle can’t be won
And will you ever understand the damage that you’ve done?
