FOR THE LOVE OF PUNK Early limited stream for 'Art & Creativity for Healing'. www.art4healing.org

We have never been much of a political band, mostly because The Shell Corporation does it smarter than we could. But this song is the result of seeing governments and people in power time and time again screw over the people they are in place to protect and represent, in favor of meeting the demands of the rich minority and companies that fund their political careers. The working class suffer, and are forced to adapt to conditions put in place to keep them barely above water. It's an backwards system but wouldn't ya know it, those people that are barely above water are still the people you want to party with.

This week's charity is Art & Creativity for Healing. They're a group that is localized here in Southern California with us, and they work to support emotional healing through art & creative expression for those living with abuse, illness, military service, homelessness and grief. They host workshops for children of military personnel, help at a shelter for abused women, provide care for the homeless, and more. Their core method is using art and creative expression to create a healing environment, something that we all use and have relied on music for as well.


There's a fire in the sky/and women and children alike/are counting their losses and planting their crosses/with no reassurance in sight/There's a face and a name/on a line on a page/but “there's nothing to fear, we're only biding our time here”/at least that's what we wanna believe/Until they hear the same refrain still sayin'/“There's help on the way, but there's a minor delay:/We spent our time helping the enemy”/There's nothing to fear cuz nothing's happening here/when all the active inactive debate an estate/But even for the martyrs it's just getting harder/and harder to keep the faith/when they hear the same refrain still sayin'/“There's help on the way, but there's a minor delay:/we spent our time helping the enemy”/And now the lives we've betrayed will become our Marley's chains/and it makes you wonder if the memory/of this place in it's state now/will remain through the fallout/And we'll stay fat, happy and dumbed down/And we'll say it was the only way out
