about

I was first given Under Attack in 2009 by Mica, actually. I was still trying to learn State of Discontent, so getting something else that was even more a cacophony was hard.

It was only recently that the lead singer was charged with sexual assault by a younger fan and the actions and responses were disheartening. The band addressed the issue without naming the problem specifically and fans jumped straight to victim blaming. This all from a community where the literal unseen should have a voice. To add insult to injury, the band's managed social media banned anyone who opposed their actions or even questioned them, silencing the thoughtful altogether.

We don't listen to them anymore. You can and we don't think you shouldn't, but every decision should be free. Being a 40 oz casualty doesn't make someone more punk. You choose the songs you sing. That's radical.

lyrics

For years I've been attached
To the words they scratched
Too harsh, the beginning
But the screams began to fill me

For years I came closer
To the feelings I hoped for
Refuse the lies they fed
To come back from the edge


You got your fill
waste her away
you couldn't care less, a dying friend
you're really so sick
the wound is too deep
you'll never give it up, tell me for what


The lies that we're told
Are the ones we're sold
The words that we trusted
Rape is dusted

I'm not longing a movement
Trying to show that
The levels we aspire
aren't much higher


Joey's family, the comrades next to him
lie one by one, his luck is running out
Mary wrote back home, almost none listening
the band is fucking laughing, profits from the tour


Mary off to die, for another senseless war
no eyes, no mouth - his victim cries at home
Joey wears the flag, so proud to fight for punks
and for the band, that doesn't give a fuck

I know
The lies we're sold

Scarred for life
scarred for life
you don't give a damn so fuck you too x2

Heroes, Heroes, Fallen Heroes
Heroes, Heroes, Fallen Heroes
Heroes, Heroes, Fallen Heroes
