Zack de la Rouda, a “Poet, singer, songwriter, rhapsodist, activist, rewilder, homesteader-in-training”, has released several albums plus miscellaneous tracks, full of rewilding and anti-civ sentiments with hip-hop beats.

To get you started, here’s “(Live Like) We’re Dying”, with a chorus advising:

we gotta start looking at the hands on the time we been given

if this is all we got then we gotta start thinking that

every second counts on a clock that’s ticking

we need to live like we’re dying

we only got 86,400 seconds in the day

to turn it all around or to throw it all away

gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

we need to live like we’re dying
