The debut single from The Beginning and the End.

Also featured on the upcoming E.P. 'Ouroboros'.


Riots are all the rage

I got all dolled up in my Monday best
Then went to town on my opinion piece of shit
Been inarticulate since I learned to speak
But I know a good nerve when I hit one

Stirring bad blood until it sets the stage
Impale this smug face upon a masthead

Riots are all the rage

Are you sitting comfortably?
then we’ll begin
the rape and the pillaging

Blood sucking pays better
Built on the backs
A padded cell; a prison still

Blood sucking tastes better
We are nothing if not consequences
Just a series of compromises

We’ll shoulder all of the lies to excavate oceans beneath your feet
I hope your swan dive finds you in seething waters
I hope that the waves take you for

A mischief of rats
A parliament of thieves

We’ll break our own bones
To build ourselves in new forms
This is the path
of most resistance
So bring it on
