Rosenstock, Jeff - Festival Song Lyrics




It feels completely ridiculous
That I'm a willing participant
Gazing at the purples and pinks
In the shadow of a bank-sponsored skyline
"Unite against the establishment!"™
(While drones transmit the images
To a server farm in the valley
For a culture that will eat its own insides)

Oh, they wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if it wasn't worth it
If you didn't have something they could take

Take a long look at the billboards
That smother the air 'til you can't ignore 'em
And glamorize department store crust-punk-chic
Cause Satan's trending up and it's fashion week
But this is not a movement. It's just careful entertainment
For an easy demographic in our sweatshop denim jackets
And we'll wonder, "What just happened?!"
When the world becomes Manhattan
Where the banks steal the apartments just to render them abandoned

Oh, they wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if it wasn't worth it
If you didn't have something they could take

We're not stupid people, but this financial depression
Has got everyone believing all that we can do is nothing
Cause we organize through avenues they lace with advertisements
So the ones we try to rage against are still lining their pockets

Oh, they wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if you weren't worth something
They wouldn't be your friend if it wasn't worth it
If you didn't have something they could take

    It feels completely ridiculous that I’m a willing participant, gazing at the purple and pinks in the shadow of a bank-sponsored skyline. “Unite against the establishment!™ (while drones transmit the images to a server farm in the valley for a culture that will eat its own insides.)”

    Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. They wouldn’t be your friend if it wasn’t worth it, if you didn’t have something they could take.

    Take a long look at the billboards that smother the air ‘til you can’t ignore ‘em and glamorize department store crust-punk-chic ‘cause Satan’s trending up and it’s Fashion Week but this is not a movement. It’s just careful entertainment for an easy demographic in our sweatshop denim jackets and we’ll wonder, “What just happened?!” when the world becomes Manhattan where the banks steal the apartments just to render them abandoned.

    We’re not stupid people but this financial oppression has got everyone believing all that we can do is nothing ‘cause we organize through avenues they lace with advertisements so the ones we try to rage against are still lining their pockets.
