Track Name: cottontail - Ownership- Cottontail
I remember growing up
the messages on getting by
life's a game you win or lose
you'll grow out of wondering why
not just as a wage slave
as a man i was socialized
i am possessed, so i possess
we are all dehumanized
competition within the roles we assigned
values beyond ownership to which we are rendered blind
police and prisons this culture has yet to refuse
and the earth is the ultimate subject of our abuse
Track Name: cottontail - Pennsylvania- Cottontail
tent dripping with dew
i have missed all of you
waking up to an overbearing sun
this feeling in my chest, it weighs a ton
in the patterns formed by the stars
i saw through my self-guarded bars
in the way the moon became dawn
it was clearly time to move on
i don't know where i'm trying to go
but it's worth the ride i suppose
pennsylvania, skies that glow
in the mountains that i know
and the people in new jersey
always restless like me, in a hurry
through the years i will roam
always in the direction of home
with or without any clue
which direction that is, what am i to do
Track Name: moon bandits - Do we want what they're giving
These days I've been spending my time looking for a better way, a better place
and it's frustrating trying to find a place for my kid to go to school and learn anything
And I'm looking for a great fucking school, that regular kids can go to
And I'm looking for a great fucking home, that has dirt so I can grow some vegetables
Am I asking for to much i've already been unlearned on how to live now, how to live now
Are we asking for to much, these are the scraps we were told to give now, told to give now
Do they own us a living, do they own us a living maybe so maybe so
Do we want what they're giving? Do we want what they're giving?
I don't know, I don't know.
Track Name: moon bandits - Industry is industry
World is so much different from when I was growing up
sometimes I feel lost ya know

I'm not saying that it's better or worse
I don't know I don't know I don't know

As far as I can tell industry is industry
it doesn't seem to matter to those I know

I want a garden I don't want a swimming pool
I want a home not property though

So where does that leave me, where does that leave us

I don't want to work for mcdonalds or walmart
or whole foods or liberty tax

Don't want to work for anyone
don't want to make a profit, how bout that

Don't want to pay rent ever again
you can keep your fries and fuck your bigmack

Oh but how do we live
Oh but how do we live
Oh but how do we change

So where does that leave me, where does that leave us

Tools they gave us are broken, the way we live in a loss
