lyrics

'It's easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism,' (said by David Harvey)

if it turns out
this world really ain't meant to last
and the words that
holds us here give way.
don't forget me
as the buildings crumble to the ground
don't forget me
in this time of dying

if you say that
what we do really don't do too much
and our hope is just some childish dream
the unfolding
petal of our thought will bloom and grow
the unfolding
shadow we return to.

and all that is solid melts into air
and all we have is love and care
all that is solid melts into air
and all we have is love and care,
so...

if it turns out
all we thought we knew was just a lie
and the fields we laid in returned to dust
don't forget me
as the blast reduces us to rust
don't forget me
in this time of dying

and all that is solid melts into air
and all we have is love and care
all that is solid melts into air
and all we have is love and care,
so...

about

Bourgeois Speedball Oakland, California

Bourgeois Speedball lives in ruins. Sculpting compositions from crumbling synthesizers, samplers, and the soundscapes of Bay Area rebellions, Bourgeois Speedball organizes sound within the decaying oikos of globalized neoliberalism.
