Spent so long fighting symptoms
the disease that we ignore.
The body thinks it’s healthy
while It’s waiting at death’s door.
Turns out there’s no "science of muddling through"
without shared values.
The biggest assholes will be
the ones left turning the screws!

So don’t talk to me about religion.
Don’t lecture me about consumerism.
From where I’m standing, it just looks like one big distraction
from the class war they’re already fighting.

The only war
They don’t want us fighting
They don’t want us fighting back


released June 29, 2021
Written and produced by Total Massacre
Mixed by Jeff Massacre
Mastered by Cass Irvine
Recorded at Beer City Studios by Total Massacre, over several masked and distanced sessions in August of 2020.

“Total Massacre have a directness and simplicity that is kind of a lost art these days; it was a
