Since I was a kid, I wrote songs for myself and my friends. Not to impress them but for us to have something we could trust.
When you listen to music, when you find something, you like, you identify with it in some way, and it services you somehow.
KING wouldn’t let us down because it’s for us by us.
Its 4 insignificant guys amongst a large group of losers that don’t care about much.
Every sentence is an immortalization of a real person, of a real place, of a real event in our lives.
These are the kinds of events you see discussed by privileged white squares on the daily news.
We are the city whose government poisoned it and got away with it, without doing a thing.
Every year our lives are poorly depicted in shitty novels and sold to shitty people alike who seek some kind of fix from the racy stories within the pages from the insulation of their bullshit house with their bullshit car and their bullshit job and their bitch wife and their stupid kids.
We work dead end jobs making the rich richer.
Or we don’t work at all which also makes the rich richer.
We shoot each other in our neighbourhoods and we die or we are sent off to prison to contribute to the cash cow that is the collection of human bodies belonging to the prison industrial complex.
While we rot in prisons or in graveyards as bad guys our lives are turned into movies re-enacted by pussies and watched by the same shitty people who buy the shitty novels for entertainment.
This being said it’s clear we don’t belong here.
This is a true story.
This isn’t for entertainment.
This doesn’t care if you like it or buy it or understand it or approve of it.
This doesn’t care at all about you.
We do not care at all about you.
This record was something we finished while we waited to die…
