about

The first release in eight years, Destruction Is Evolutionary (D.I.E) unleash upon you UP AGAINST THE WALL - a new funky and heavy, thought-provoking, fistraiser revealing the discontent of 1968 and the similarities to the present era. 

lyrics

1968, A year of unrest
Fist in the air, a nation to the test
Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall,
They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls.

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
Up against the wall motherfuckers
Up against the wall

It’s happened before it’ll happen again,
A neverending story that’ll come to an end.
Violent by nature, sadistic is it’s way,
Our system breeds the tyrant but is it really just to blame?
They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them?
It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend.
Light the walls on fire and loot what you need,
Turn around the soil and plant a new seed.

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
Up against the wall motherfuckers
Up against the wall

1968, a year of unrest
Fist in the air, a nation to the test
Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall
They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls
They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them?
It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend.
If we let them get away we’ll regret and well pay
They’ll stomp in our faces while we faintly hear them say:

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
Up against the wall motherfuckers
Up against the wall
