This is a song I wrote some years ago about war being like domestic violence in a dysfunctional human family, and how this can only lead to meager survival in an unlivable world just preceding our extinction. A Dystopian Folk Rock original.

This is a song about the fate of the human family, and therefore the fate of humanity as a whole. It's only fate because of nurture so stop blaming nature and life when it is clearly society's fault! It's something we learned and therefore can be changed, prevented, but it's not because we can't - it's because we won't.
We're only waiting
For a little spark
For the slightest disruption

In our minds
Lies dormant
Our naked aggression..

The masses' impotence
While the pages everyday
Get more and more grey

In our minds
Lies dormant
Our collective aggression..

The ship is getting warm
Is it apathy or simply
The calm before the storm

We can live in solitude
Sheltered from the debris
We can make love in the bunker…
The perfect place for our
Dysfunctional family

We're done waiting
The machine imposed a spark
The unconscious oligarchical reaction

In our minds
Lies dormant
Our naked aggression..

Are we complacent
Or just complicit
In the escalation of all conflict

In our minds
Lies dormant
Our collective aggression

The rock is getting warm
Is it manifest or just
The calm before the storm

We can live in solitude
Sheltered from the debris
We can make love in the bunker…
The perfect place to bottleneck
Our family tree..
