about

Few westerners alive today have been through war at home. These are the voices of four of our grandmothers and grandfathers. And if we listen, we might see that it's never the alien villains and superheroes. It's always just us. It was your grandpa that was dropping bombs, and your buddy's grandma that was hiding from them. And it might just be us that launch the fucking Apocalypse. And if we get it, we might just do something about it.

Track Name: Thirsty Apes
You're a good fuck, sailor
I never say shit I don't mean

I grew up in this shithole
Run by cunts on power trips

You're no such cunt
At least not right now

You just walked in
Ordered a shitty whiskey
I set my eyes on you

Things went as things always go
When thirsty apes meet thirsty apes

And then you told me about him
His peaceful ways

I never told you my side of it
I hate his face

I can remember holding him
He was already gone

This shit was fight or flight
He chose to fly away from me

Things went as things always go
When hollow apes meet hollow apes

He just said "I can't take this madness any longer,
this world is so confused.
And that was it. God took the fucker,
gave nothing in return.

I've been running my own show
Since I was 17

I still don't know how to love a stranger
Never learnt how to trust a thief

They come, they go
Never look people in the eyes

You just walked in
Ordered a shitty whiskey
You set your eyes on me

Things went as things always go
When thirsty apes meet thirsty apes
Track Name: Communion
The nights are bright out in the sea
My old head casting shadows
With every hit, bigger they grow
Suspended from the gallows

At nights like this one I can't see
Who's here, who's dead, who's dying
Who killed first, who was really killed
Your eyes and his are lying

The hours fly straight right through the noose
They scream, they spit, they growl
They just don't seem to let it go
They're deaf, they're blind, they're foul

He kept you hanging from that tree
For days on end, there, swinging
The passersby saw through it all
He stood right by you, singing

You know I cut him in his sleep
You should have seen his face
He sure was peaceful, opened up
To endings, death, to grace

The hours fly straight right through the noose
They scream, they spit, they growl
They just don't seem to let it go
They're deaf, they're blind, they're foul

But they succumb to this holy breeze
The songs of salt it hums
The hits are now the medicine
Communion with our Sons
Track Name: Just a Kid
Yeah, she'll be waiting for me
She knows how it's done

That's how she made it this far
We'll be fine

Thank you for the fire
You old fuck

I'll pass it on
We'll keep it burning

Give me a hit before I go
It's been a good ride

You got more stories for me
Write them down, send them home

Just remember to forget my name
Just make something up

I hear they're having too much fun
He went missing as they do

They gave him back a broken man
Bruised up, his lost days in his blank stare

This will have to change.
They will have to change.

Give me a hit before I go
It's been a good ride
Track Name: Presence
Palms pressed against each other
Eyes closed, face down
Thoughts tamed, all noise deflected
By our Redeemer's thorny crown

But then I got to find out
That my prayers never reached her
He made this one as clear as ether

The snake stayed out of sight
Warm and safe in its shell
When time was right it showed its face
I fought, he died, I ran away

And then I got to find out
That my prayers never reached her
He made this one as clear as ether

The Sun is rising every morning
The Earth still breeds its seeds
Some of us silly apes are truly present
I'll be praying for our sins
