“142 Years” by Drew Wadden and the filthy politicians

This collaboration between the filthy politicians and Drew Wadden provides a concise summary of the trajectory of civilization, then challenges the listener with a fundamental moral question: what are you going to do about it?

Listen to “142 Years” from the album Modern Man and read the lyrics below, and hear more songs at the filthy politicians on bandcamp and at the filthy politicians on soundcloud.

do you believe that you will die at the end of your life?

what do you think that you will do when nobody can find you?

shit- if we leave here just like this

the way it is now right now

it’s a crime scene past time we quit

we’ve filled paradise full of maggots and shit

which when left to their own are a part of the cycle

but that’s blown sky high by a psycho

cancer of a culture that conquered the world with agriculture

we ain’t been right with the world for awhile now

rocks, rivers, plants, and animals in exile

we killed the tribes in due course

and turned relationships into resource

extractors – manufacturers

turn the living world into plastic we’re

drownin in a sea of loneliness

flailin about for a long lost home it gets

hard to listen to the screams

when you wake up and take in the scene

people take up the meaningless memes

to disconnect is how we cope it seems

if he who dies with the most toys wins

mother earth cries but it’s lost in the din

does that man get to join the elders?

or does he wander the depths of hell?

if you sold your soul every time you

took a bite of the torture behind you

hid the light from the torch inside you

do you really think in the end we could find you?

if you sold your soul every time you

took a bite of the torture behind you

hid the light from the torch inside you

do you really think in the end we could find you?

you gotta wake up

you gotta wake up

we tear apart the world for what?

we’re still not happy – time to give it up

there’s always other ways – old ways – waitin

fight back why are we hesitatin?

we got zombie hearts with the brain rot

take a look inside – what do you got?
