Blood 05:44
For all your love of soma All my blood’s in vain You say your history’s over All of my blood’s in vain Your television coma All my blood’s in vain It’s gone too far to change All of my blood’s in vain Flash across your screen [They] got you in their hand Fifteen minutes of freedom Still 3/5 a man Sterilize your conscience and disgrace your name A healthy simulation All my blood’s in vain For all your love of soma All my blood’s in vain You say your history’s over All my blood’s in vain Your television coma All my blood’s in vain It’s gone too far to change All of my blood’s in vain Liquor stains your table Women change your bed You rise on Sunday morning Just like the living dead Your Hell is fornication Your Heaven is the same But master is complacent So all of my blood’s in vain For all your love of soma All my blood’s in vain You say your history’s over All my blood’s in vain Your television coma All my blood’s in vain It’s gone too far to change All of my blood’s in vain Four hundred years of torture Four hundred years a slave Dead just to watch you squander Just what we tried to save Now death is at your doorstep And you’re still playing games So drown in entertainment Cause all our blood is in vain.

Black Eunuch 03:55
We are all walking in the dark with the scissors in our hand We are there when you fall apart when there’s no one in your bed We are all walking in the dark with the scissors in our hand We are there when you fall apart when there’s no one in your bed She said, “Please keep your smile away so we can still be friends” I’m standing single file While sex melts in my hand Desiring other things That other eyes in other rooms desire They pay her with their diamond rings Then she has me wait outside Then they come crawling out So, how dare you smile so sweet? [We are there when you’re in the dark when there’s no one in your bed] And how dare you speak so soft? [We are there when you fall apart with no one to hold your head] No, don’t try to undress me No, nobody else at all Nobody else at all Nobody else at all.

about

Algiers

Algiers is a band of musicians born in Atlanta, Georgia, the rotten hub of the Ol’ American South, where W.E.B. Dubois once saw a riot goin’ on, and where the hell and highwater swirls ‘round to the knees.
