lyrics

COMIN' TO GET OUR COUSINS
Why are we acting like this is new?
from the white sheet, to the red line
to the murderers dressed in blue

Pop open the suture, let's get to the meat
no one wants to believe they're the bad ones
but no one is separate from history

Now it's time
to come and take you back
we call you our cousins, but you are so much closer than that
you had freedom of choice
and made the choice to be an asshole
now we gotta bring you home
invert your case of Stockholm Syndrome

Have you convinced yourself there's no truth?
that everyone's existence besides your own
is solely out to ruin you?

With your fucking American flag
and your fucking Confederate flag
and your fucking Gadsden flag
flag flag flag flag flag flag fuck your flag

We're coming to take you home
to the shed, in the back
there's no safety in your F-250

You're just another fash from the white working class
pushing down on others
to maintain your meager advantages
fetishizing of security
failure of philosophy
don't start whining at me, cousin
because I know this bullshit is in me, too

And now it's time
to come and take you back
you may be our cousins, but let's not get sentimental
dynamite under your chair
while we all have a chat, it's true
and if that doesn't work we'll light the fuse
and lock ourselves inside with you
