about

This is the title track of our new four song EP, called "Tradition".

Hardcore / Punk used to be about “Using your head” and about going against the grain. It used to be about questioning others and finding your own place. So far so good. But I believe that Hardcore / Punk could also be about questioning yourself, your own habits, your own way of life.
It is so easy to point fingers at others, it is convenient to blame others for what is going wrong in the world. But we are no blue-eyed teenagers anymore. We are all long past that phase. I know you can’t change the world with a song. (Even tough “No More” by YOT did change my life)
This is real life and we are well aware of it. So this song is meant to hopefully provoke some thoughts about our daily habits. Wise man said it before, but if you really want to make a change, start with yourself, or rather, start with your plate. You have (hopefully) full control over it. So choose wisely. The consequences of this small change can be seen and felt in a far wider range. This is what “Tradition” is about.

lyrics

Tradition

A tradition of killing
Mass murder on demand
Depersonalize at will to justify our behavior
Born and raised to suffer and die
No one seems to ask why
Mass murder on demand

Chorus:
You can’t count the lives that it costs
You can’t measure the pain it brings

We mind our own business
Find no fault in tradition
We put on a blind
We sacrifice our own health
With every bite we take a life
Do you feel what they felt?
Mass murder on demand

Chorus:
You can’t count the lives that it costs
You can’t measure the pain it brings

Stop and think for a minute
But we’re too proud to admit it
We find no fault in tradition
But this is not a game
With every bite we take a life
Do you feel what they felt?
And we swallow their pain
Mass murder on demand
