Blood in the Wake (Reprise)

Blood in the Wake (Reprise)

Words and music by Abel Ashes, from the album Between the Droughts and the Floods, 2019

Active measures of a cynical kind
Selling fake new for gullible minds.
Oligarchs safe in a blanket of lies
As they target the press who are not on their side.

Disinfo spreads, populists rise
And every other bigot’s got God on his side.
Disinfo spreads, populists rise
And every fucking bigot’s got national pride.

Selling their guns to whoever they can
Racists and creeps, Turner Diaries fans.
Selling their guns to whoever they will
Paranoid freaks with intention to kill.

Psychopaths are born, sociopaths are made
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.

While they recite religious verse
Brainwashing boys, brainwashing girls,
While they recite religious verse
They’re raping boys, they’re raping girls.

Bombing a crowd of a different sect
For some holy reward they’ve been taught to expect.
Bombing a crowd of a different sect
For some holy reward they’ve been taught to expect.

Kill little kids for a God that’s not there,
For some kind of reward somewhere up in the air.
Kill little kids for a God that’s not there,
For some kind of reward somewhere up in the air.
