You Have The Right To Remain Violent

from by Mercy Ties

lyrics

all cops are bastards
with a gun to my face, knees in my back
a bruise shaped like fists covers my neck
their "just cause"
a probable threat
from teens watching
movies on a saturday night
what might have happened if i were poc
said yo soy boricua; just another statistic

kill pigs, not kids: if there's one bad apple, burn the tree
kill pigs, not kids: every act of creation is an act of destruction

don't buy the lie that we can't make a better world for all of us

the have their guns but we outnumber
frightened children, in adult situations
take away their guns and absolute power
these plausible liars are sick with denial
they've drawn a line on every street
their catastrophes are never discreet
our violence won't negate our rage

don't buy the lie that we can't make a better world

about

Mercy Ties Seattle

Born of the ashes of a great fire,
we are the flame they cannot contain.

"Mercy Ties are “punk-rock gone schizo; a deformed approach that adds elements of math rock and grind to create something unsettling, unpredictable and distinctive." - Decibel
