Justin Pearson from Deaf Club on “Planet Bombing:”
“There is a lot to unpack in what I’m trying to cover with the lyrics. Overall, I was taking a jab at Capitalism and the fact that for many humans, financial wealth is more important than humanity, the environment, or even the future for generations that will inherit the planet. I tried to sprinkle in subtle, or not so subtle points addressing race, class, and my overall disgust in the archetype of those who control the financial sector of US imperialism.”
Wall Street is War Street.
White sheet, trick or treat?
Concrete soiled suite.
Shit gene, hit delete.
Gentleman wears a bloody glove, sent from the heavens above.
Can’t un-dream if he doesn’t dispose of the fallen peace dove.
And the dead sky became so dark that the bats stayed home.
There was, no blood, to feed, the bad, chromosome.
Compete cheating athlete.
Off beat while it plays on repeat.
Excrete on the back seat.
The elite will make this obsolete
