about

Violent Opposition San Rafael, California

Started Sept 2013

The foundation is rooted in early earache grind and frank zappa.
But, west coast hardcore! And, Canadian fastcore! I love it!

Lyrics have mostly been a lot of self help shit, sociopolitical, observations of behavior and culture, what you might expect from a zappa/grind project...

Track Name: Assata Shakur
ASSATA SHAKUR

Stand against
an oppressive government
Resist attempts
to crush, to silence

Expose the weakness, expose the fraud
Show the world the evil empire
Inspire revolution, continue forward
Smash the system, oppress oppression
Eradicate racism

Power lies in hearts and minds
The truth, in time
will turn their children against them
Eroding from within
The seeds of change have sprouted
Surrounded by mountains of manure
Matured

Visions of freedom, end the enslavement
Brotherhood of humanity working together
Conquer colonialism, real revolution
No slaves, no masters, peace and freedom
Track Name: Schindler's Regret
SCHINDLER'S REGRET

Shame

Erode the system
Work from within

Living in luxury
While millions are still suffering
With every product bought and sold
Another life is killed

Tortured
Conscience
Savior of the victim
Supporter of the violence

Extravagance
Death sentence
Excess
Repentant

Hiding like a coward
Afraid of those in power
Remaining silent
Unnoticed, well fed

Protecting the people who serve your interests
Supporting the evil, making excuses
It's not until it's too late
That you realize what's right
Track Name: The Pentagon's Pediphelia Problem
THE PENTAGON'S PEDOPHILIA PROBLEM

Twisted minds win wars
Lustful, leisure time
Stress relief through child porn

Evil lies in the hearts
of all war mongers
who kill for corporations
to control earth's resources

If you want to win
Sell your soul to Satan
It takes an evil genius
To murder for no purpose

Unrestrained
Moral decay

The truth will kill
Destabilize
We need the skills
of evil minds

Cover up the sin
Pretend it never happened
Enabling it again
Until it's an epidemic

Blind eyes
Ethically inferior to our enemies
Vile
Pigs
Track Name: Willful Ignorance
WILLFUL IGNORANCE

The ugly truth is hard to bare
The key to success is to remain unaware

Comfort
Pleasure
Excess
Mindless

Entertainment for the masses
drowns out desperate voices

Rape
Poverty
Inequality
Avert your eyes
Ignore disease
Justify with lies
Compromise
your humanity
Track Name: Music In The Streets, Art On The Walls
MUSIC IN THE STREETS, ART ON THE WALLS

Culture influences behavior
A Useful tool for those in power
Suppression of independent expression
Too much color leads to freedom

Art can't be found in a gallery
There's no music on MTV
Capitalism and consumption
Culture is in the streets

Oppressive by design
To keep the slaves in line
They tell us music starts the fights
And art brings the crime

They bore out a hole
and package it nice
Sell you your soul
Control your life

Liberate, express
Unbind your mind, independence
Revolution, free expression

An act of defiance to celebrate existence
The language of resistance, art and music
Track Name: Anarcho Syndicalism
ANARCHO SYNDICALISM

Take control
Your life is your own

Economic depravity
Forced to wage slavery
Living in a factory
To feed a hungry family

No one cares, it's all lies
Exploiting labor, taking lives
Use you up, cast you aside
Sick and frail, left to die

Hierarchical systems are designed to oppress
Power corrupts, inequality is theft

Direct action, self management
Stand in solidarity, create community
Track Name: Endless Growth
ENDLESS GROWTH

Conquer all boundaries
Harvest all resources
Infinite goals
Limited planet

A destructive system
Fueled by division
Wasting our position
On economic fictions

Kill to control food and oil
To maintain the stranglehold
Larger than the market, more than we need
Create necessity, impose poverty

Consume

Sustain the greedy game
Until everything is claimed
The winner sits alone
In an uninhabitable world
Track Name: War Is A Racket
WAR IS A RACKET

Profiteers of misery and death
Instigating fear, manipulating conflict

Shut down all companies that profit from war
The military industry is a plague on the earth
Polluting the planet for personal profit
Drones killing children called collateral damage
No incentive to stop it

Warned, ignored
It's happened many times before

Villains, corrupted system
Funding politicians
To gain contracts
Murdering for cash
Capitalist
False premise
An environment of fear
Sell weapons
Used in mass murder

We're all complicit, they use our tax money
We buy their products and watch their movies
They expand their markets and create new problems
To sell more bombs
Track Name: Watch Them Suffer And Die
WATCH THEM SUFFER AND DIE

Faux news entertainment
Hating on the immigrants
Watching babies wash ashore
Hate them even more

Hungry hoards
Fleeing wars
Invasions to control
Pipelines and oil

Instincts to kick
Afraid of the desperate
Reflexes of a guilty conscience

Ignoring consequence
Blame it on circumstance
Violating treaties
Destabilizing countries
Reich, lay claim
Sieg Heil corporate reign

Greed and hate
Turned away
Desperate to survive
Radicalized
Track Name: Economic Democracy
ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY

Monopolize resources
Incentivize wastefulness
Force a man to be a slave
Toil for bread or beg

Corporate government
Creating debt
Fascist candidates
Serve self interest

And the sheep believe
the wolves have given
them the choice
of what's for dinner

Rule, unsustainable
Enslave the dying world

Political rights disguised
Demagogue domestic debates
Republicans want war
Democrats tax more
But the public has no control
of economic power

Change the system
Rebel reform
Track Name: Let The Water Flow
LET THE WATER FLOW

Capitalize
without any foresight
Necessity to survive
Not a privilege, a right

Hold all responsible
Who poison the wells
Topple the tyrants
Let the water flow

Pollution comes from corruption
Disregarding natural functions
Hoarding resources for power and wealth
Ignore the suffering of those you kill

Rudimentary tyranny
Enforced by the military
Taking everything they need
Only providing misery

Natural law
An angry mob
cant be stopped
Track Name: Cut Off The Nose To Spite The Face
CUT OFF THE NOSE TO SPITE THE FACE

Over reaction
Emotional state
Leave no bridge standing
Unlimited fury, unbridled hate

Solve all problems
through destruction
Barren land
Utopian vision
'
Apocalyptic
Forward thinking
Inevitable extinction

Tired of the struggle
Endless negotiation
Nuclear warfare
Annihilate the planet

Force the world to your will
Let them learn, you will kill
Twisted savior
Gifting euthanasia

Principles protected
from the threat of more dissension
Introspection overlooked
Fear flows in the darkest depths

Pain eliminated
Humacide
Projecting flaws onto those
victimized by your rage
Track Name: Grind Code
GRIND CODE

Order in the universe
Governed by rigid rules
All things must be structured
Can't have anarchy in music

Lame to claim a thing like taste
Create the way your opinion will sway
Don't hate on the shame of another's display

Challenge conventionality
We don't need more boundaries
Encourage self expression, encourage new ideas
Disregard the opinions of your ego's ideals

Keep your mind
from turning to mud

Keeping it real
ripping off the style
of another band from
twenty years ago
No
Let it go
Track Name: Forced Positivity
FORCED POSITIVITY

Rage
Watch the world decay more each day
Try to remain sane

Poverty and greed, the inequality
Deny people's needs, altered reality
Ignored suffering, irrationality
The glass is half empty

Maintain
A drive for change
Set the stage

We all need a reason to continue forward
Artificial light in a bottomless cavern
Shine, give all you can
Fight the insanity right to the end
Find a happy place
The weight of the world will strip life away
Hide
Find a happy place
Track Name: Some People Shouldn't Work
SOME PEOPLE SHOULDN'T WORK

Not everyone is fit to serve
Struggle brings desperation
Human value in monetary worth
A universal basic income

Forced to work at 85
Greet at walmart to stay alive
Not even enough money to buy
Products at rock bottom price

Deny dignity
Purchasing power stimulates the economy
No one can profit from extreme poverty

Sub par labor
costs tax payers
Slowing means of production
Draining resources from the nation
Basic income would strengthen the system
The value of money is fiction
Track Name: Mercenaries
MERCENARIES

Profit from chaos
Incentivize soldiers
Create reasons to kill
A demand to be filled

Raping, torturing
Embolden the enemy
More conflict
Provides profit

Buy politicians, fund elections
There's no leaders they don't influence

Despicable defense contractors
Perpetuating endless wars
Giving weapons to the monsters
Foot the bill to tax payers

Lie
Playing both sides

Scam

Sell more death
Blood soaked wealth
The sickest form of prostitution
Packaged and sold as patriotism
Track Name: Greed And Glory
GREED AND GLORY

Thug
Manipulated through patriotism
Mindless mass from media deception
Ruling class creates desperation
Join the military to avoid starvation

Freedom
Religion
Ideals used
To conceal the truth

Murdering for corporate interests
Brainwashed to think that there's a difference
Invading countries to control oil
Fighting terrorism by bombing hospitals

Kill
Shameful

Always obey without hesitation
Never questioning authority
Believing that wars are fought for freedom
They're waged for power, greed, and glory
Track Name: Fear Profiteer
FEAR PROFITEER

Rewriting reality to raise viewer ratings

Self centered narrative, sensationalized rhetoric
Fueling delusions of mental degenerates
Intent to create an emotional state
Irrational fears dominate public debate
Conquered from within by the enemy we create

Victim complex
Projecting conflicts of a guilty conscience
to avoid facing the ugly consequence

Inflammatory lies
affect people's lives
Entertaining to watch
overblown hype

Influencing
Mass shootings
Track Name: Supperman
SUPPERMAN

There's no justice on an empty stomach

Serving supper throughout the land
Feeding every hungry human
A super hero of epic proportion
Solving problems through real solutions
Too many children sent to sleep hungry
Conflicts are solved when stomachs stop grumbling

Forced starvation
Feeds desperation
Irrational behavior
Searching for a savior
Religion,government
Any one who is providing sustenance
Terrorists, capitalists
Anything to avoid a bloated death
Track Name: Capitalism Stifles Innovation
CAPITALISM STIFLES INNOVATION

Cease, desist
Don't resist

Suppression of medicine
Innovations defunded

Ideas shelved until margins show
Saturation, negative growth
Wasted efforts to make life easier
Manipulate to make a small few wealthier

Eliminate competition
Acquire all patents
Shut down violations
Track Name: Conjunction Function
CONJUNCTION FUNCTION

Food grows from fertile ground
We burn it down to build our homes

Hungry people, concrete jungle
Kill the ecosystem for capitalism

Tear up all the concrete
Let the earth breathe
Mass transportation
Modern innovation
Integrated with nature
Make the world safer
Clean air and water

The planet is a sentient being
Live in harmony with the land
it will provide everything

Suffering
comes to an end
Observe the larger purpose
You'll be at peace with the universe
Track Name: All Wars Are Bankers Wars
ALL WARS ARE BANKERS WARS

Debt will enslave

Follow the money, they're funding all sides
Every opportunity to capitalize
Rely, suck countries dry
To control the world's money supply
They own our government
It could come to a halt with a flick of their pen
Pretend it's our only option

Where evil lies
you will find
The same men
behind every event
Nothing could happen
without their consent

Create more need with every tragedy
Funding the criminals, funding the police
Economic power, rule through fear
Assassinate, intimidate, smear a career

Economic fiction
Manipulation
Stop the theft
Audit the fed
Mint our own coin
Set our own interest
Everybody benefits
Shared profits
