about

As musicians, we have united to do what we can do to make our voices heard: Trump does not support us, and with the benefit of hindsight, he does not support the majority of American voters, either. While we accept the results of the 2016 election, we reject any and all of the racist, homophobic, and sexist rhetoric that accompanied it.

All proceeds from this compilation will go to the ACLU, who have vowed to act as a legal watchdog for any potentially unconstitutional behavior in which Trump attempts to conduct. This is not a protest against the results of the election, nor is it borne as a result of any candidate's loss.

“To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.”

-Bernie Sanders

Track Name: Nau-Zee-auN - Xenophobia [W.A.N.T mix]
Keep them out for the clothes they wear
Keep them out for their piercings and tattoos
Keep them out for who they love
Keep them out if they are not like you

Keep Them Out (x8)

Keep them out for any excuse,
to divide an us from them.
The struggles may be different,
but the thought process remains the same.

It's always...

(chorus x2)
Xenophobia. The roots of bigotry. [1]
Separate the outsiders.
No room for empathy

Defend the border.
Build a wall.
They send their worst.
You don't belong. [2]

Brown eyes bad
Blue eyes good [3]

No matter how much we learn
I see the same excuse

Protect freaks from the norms. [4]
Protect our women from eye rape. [5]
Protect our children from immigrants.
The thought process is all the same.

Keep them out for any excuse,
to divide an us from them.
The struggles may be different,
but the thought process remains the same.

It's always

(chorus x2)

A thin blue line to defend
the wealthy from the black skin. [6]

The door man checks your fashion,
to protect the fashion victims. [7]

Another clique. It makes me sick.
The roots of all this ignorance.

Can you bomb a person
without dehumanization [8]
by

(chorus x2)

Xenophobia (x4)

[notes]
[1] Although the history of every group's struggles against racism,
sexism, genocide, homophobia, and mistreatment for their religion,
nationality, or any number of other reasons all have their unique
stories, losses, and body counts, the root of all of the above is a
common theme of thought process in people. Xenophobia is the fear of
the other. That other could be other because of race, religion,
sexual preference, gender, nationality, language, or even something as
superficial as the way people dress, or if they have tattoos, or some
other superficial trait that is otherwise irrelevant, This song and
this lyric is an attempt to address this root and tie it together in a
way that hopefully both calls out great abuses but also makes us more
aware of the similarities in more socially accepted forms of
dehumanization and segregation that are far more common in our
society.
[2] refers directly to statements made frequently by Donald Trump and
his supporters among others.
[3] a nod to Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes Brown Eyes exercise on racism.
[4]+[7] Common themes in various subcultures.
[5] "eye rape" was a Jim Crow charge that could get black men jailed
or executed for simply looking at a white woman, and was used as a
justification in lynchings including that of Emmett Till.
[6] The 'thin blue line' is a symbol that is used to represent police
heroically separating the good guys from the bag guys. A retired
police officer described his former job as separating the rich and the
poor. In a year full of police killings and beatings caught on camera
of mostly unarmed black men, the thin blue line suggests to me a
different type of segregation of society by police.
[8] Military campaigns have historically used propaganda that
encourages and uses xenophobia against the enemy, to dehumanize
whoever the war is fought against. Examples are plentiful and include
World War II usage of racist caricatures of Asian people that are
comparable to the racist caricatures done by the Nazis of African and
Jewish people. Sadly, modern Islamaphobia has been fanned in similar
ways by some today as just one more example.

I’ve been living on monkey skulls
I’ve been living way down below
I’ve been living on chicken bones
I’ve been living way down below

I speak Latin though
I spit Latin though

I’ve been collecting knives knives in the back in the back back back back back back back back
The whole way down
Way down

Do you want the taste of rubies
Do you want to raise the dead
Are you a full moon lover
Will you sign my book in red

I speak fire though
I spit fire though

I’ve been collecting knives knives in the back in the back back back back back back back back
The whole way down
Way down

I’ve been waiting for too long
I’ve been waiting for far too long
I’ve been waiting for too long

They been killing for too long

Been scared for too long

Been scared for too long
They had the power for too long

Track Name: The Guilloteenagers - Books Endorsed By Kirk Cameron
If you think I have the time
To listen to you croak and lie
Better start that thought over
And go back to your home sir

Outta time
Outta time
Outta time
Stand and lie

Books endorsed by Kirk Cameron
I won't read 'em, probably slam 'em
For no reason than your god's
Gay bashing, fake façade

Outta time
Outta time
Outta time
Stand and lie

So you think ya have it all
You want more to stand tall
You can have your liverwurst sandwich
I won't eat it, if you planned it

Outta time
Outta time
Outta time
Stand and lie
Track Name: Los Bungalitos - Antiquated Modernity
Contemporary visions of the past
I guess Orwell was right.
This new feudal age
Where the Lord is the banker
The new Caudillos wear suits and ties
Owning everything you believe you do
[perennially] sanctioned by the Holy Order
Almost an utopia dreamt by Ayn Rand

Spending your life owing those that own you
Protected by the laws bought with the fruit of your labor
Sending you to the killing fields
Watching from afar with a cocktail in hand
"Thank you for your servitude"- the master says
... as your life has become wretched
