Breakdown

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mC...FOn7qdMk1Z_bJi

Every nation state is
the product of violence
manufactured silence
of the people
the sequel
the same old evil
we try to pinpoint it
find the next hero and anoint him
champion

left or right
jab or cross
asking god to no avail
know the tales
handed down
like the crown
like the sound

out of fashion
outlasting
amassing
the dancing soul
cast in roles
on behalf of those
whose mask is gold

wrapped in bandages I roam
through the vast expanses of old

before the ink is dry
channeling the wisdom of the inca tribe
Amaru
painted as a savage and a cannibal
imagine corpses
that were ripped apart by Spanish horses

Spanish and Russian, and Korean too?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dismemberment this is the reference I was using -- wayward Incas might be subjected to this sort of things at the hands of the Spanish. Not pretty.

Thanks for listening you should post some of your recordings.

Yeah, I dig this.

I played it on my iPhone first ‘cause I was out. When I put it on the garage stereo (that’s where the best sound is in our house) it really came to life.
