about

Breaking the chains and strengthening the bonds worldwide, a split that came together through our Russian tour and Dropdead Ben's US suggestions.
Emissaries of Syn tracks recorded April 2018 at Studio 1 in 12, Bradford with Bri Doom, who also mixed and mastered, and took us for burritos and curry.

Track Name: Fixed Point In Time
this sum total to which we can't add, nostalgia for something never had
neuralgia over culture gone to seed, fear of the future feeds this need
should have learned from the past, that this was never meant to last
futile resistance to changing state, accept evolution as your fate

no more history, just this story for eternity

where is it written, that this is britain? where does it lie? when will it die?
Track Name: A Life Less Lethal
power gone to the head, power is a gun to the head

a public servant has left their post, state puppet master now the host
best intentions corrode away, rotten apples feed on the decay
what once had a place, a beat in the heart, changed with a strike and a step apart
militia behind shield and mask, maintain silence to the questions asked

like why you are more likely to get killed by police
than you are to kill the police?

private security like black ops ghosts, chained dogs to who pays the most
arrest intentions, put them away, corrupt the rules to bend your way
chosen your side and playing your part, breaking people an unrefined art
paramilitary faceless line, licenced violence first resort every time

in your hands, weapon of choice, ends the challenge to your failed voice
now always ready to escalate, shoot your way out of a debate

your presence now to intimidate, stuck in this cycle of adverse hate
the threat to conform, your ease to strife, once you accept you can take a like
no complaints will be heard, for you the law will be blurred
the shot, the shock, you control, charged, released, we're all on parole

in your hands, weapon of choice, ends the challenge to your failed voice
now always ready to escalate, shoot your way out of a debate
Track Name: Mechanical Harm
four wheels good, two wheels bad, the righteous in their metal cage get road rage mad
some road users are more equal than others, autopilot switched on, empathy never had

get out of my way, you two second delay

napoleon syndrome on this path you hog, barriers to progress seen through red fog
all this petrol (to the head) has diluted your sense, look to yourself to what causes the offence

need the return on the investment, need the speed and to be freed
horse power symbol out of control, crushed lives the cost of your greed

four wheels good, two wheels bad
get out of my way, you two second delay
Track Name: Invested Interest
the only long term thinking, is on how the cash will flow
the best laid plans of rats of men, keep it with those in the know

follow the money, to private hands
the business of state, asset stripping the land

servants to themselves, elected plutocracy
venal greed beyond their need, this is daylight robbery

follow the money, to private hands
the business of state, asset stripping the land

it's only money, it doesn't exist
changing something to nothing, is something we should resist
Track Name: She Is Not My Equal
objectified and then shunned, are we living in caveman lands?
objectified and then shunned, are we ruled by primitive glands?

who am i to speak for my sister when she has a voice of her own?
drowning in a cacophony of spread wide masculinity
are we in this race together? two parts of a greater whole
when one is hamstrung from the start, with more hurdles to the goal

she is not my equal, she is more

and those who have the advantage, react to the threat to the lead
reduce to the image, turn down the sound, in two dimensions no objection is found
are we in this race together? two parts of a greater whole
when one is hamstrung from the start, with more hurdles to the goal

she is not my equal, she is more
