about

First single from the album An Even Seven, released July 21, 2022.

lyrics

You know it's easy
You know it's easy to be manipulated
Take it from me
I used to be
Such a dumbass
I'm still a dumbass
But now I know it
I try to keep it low key, usually
Such an abundance of rubes, we're redundant
A loose collection on whom it is incumbent
To not destroy ourselves but instead our ideology:
What's in it for me?

You earn a living
Yeah you earn a living to be indoctrinated
Just so you can see living ain't free
Accept the charges or there will be charges
Your fingerprint fine print is full of hidden fees and no guarantees
Such an abundance of rubes we're redundant
A loose collection on whom it is incumbent
To not destroy ourselves but instead our ideology:
What's in it for me?

Or you could break out on your own
Learn to text with a rotary phone
Write some essays in the dirt
Opinions that the ants subvert
Before the wind and rain erase them with no trace
And you finally crack like a CD case

You know it's easy
So goddamn easy to be manipulated
Until you only see
Your own and your enemy
It's hard to miss it
Don't be complicit, you'll see
Critical thinking we can agree
Can easily atrophy
