CAPACITOR (Takashi Shallow Dub Version - 2020 single)

by Roommate

Do you really have the right to sleep at night when you know that you could do so much more for your mother & your loves & the freaks in the streets & on the dance floor? Who do you think you are? Are you a citizen are you an innocent are you a shooter or a shooting star? Are you a craven mope are you a ray of hope? Are you spray or soak are you pray or poke are you flame or smoke? (hit the choke hit the choke) wake me up when you get woke (hit the choke hit the choke) Tell me how it feels to be young when everything you were told would hold is blowing up & out & coming undone Tell me how it feels to believe in a god who applauds your exhaust in a world in which you deserve to be heard? If I lived in hope would I laugh at the pastor's jokes? If I lived in the know would you respect my approach would you accept my encroachment would you bless my revoke? (hit the choke hit the choke) fucking spare me the Woody Allen quotes (hit the choke hit the choke) (hit the choke hit the choke) Something stupid this way comes summoned by some ugly drums and if stupid is as stupid does this stupid ugly is America's The future is a grain of sand encrusted in a bloody hand hailing an infinite power The future is ours?
