Folkklassieker du jour: Urine Speaks Louder Than Words

Folkpunk, in dit geval, van de Wingnut Dishwashers Union, anarcho folkpunk uit Vermont, ‘geleid’ door Pat the Bunny.

Urine Speaks Louder Than Words is een nummer van hun album “Burn The Earth, Leave It Behind,” en momenteel past dat sentiment erg goed bij de algemene stemming die ik in de wereld meen te ontwaren.

I swear that someday
I’ll tell you without lying
I was born to quit smoking
I was born to quit dying

On that day
Not doing heroine will be easy as piss
And on that day
I’ll stop talking so much shit about the government

Cause’ urine speaks louder than words
On a politician
Or on a prison warden
Urine speaks louder than words

I swear that today
I was born to be livin’
I was born to be singin’
I was born to be fightin’

But will somebody say
Is this resistance or a costume party
Either way I think black with bandanas is a boring theme

I don’t gotta tell you
Crackers are great with amnesia
When they wanna forget something like
Centuries of racism

They say look at the man on center stage
And pay no attention
While millions get locked in a cage
Riots break out in Oakland

But urine speaks louder than words
On a prison warden
Or on a BART Policeman
Urine speaks louder than words
