I could put on a tight black shirt, but I don’t bother I could hit the gym so it looks real nice, but I don’t bother I could tell a joke and make the whole room laugh, but I don’t bother I could show up with the coldest six pack, but I don’t bother
Contravene's song about self-criticism in anarchism.
This is very important to build a true anarchist scene. Deconstructing the privileges of gender, race and class. And, “manarchists you’re not our comrades!”
Contravene - Conviction
We talk about autonomy and respect, but all I see is a lack of responsibility Sometimes the difference between what’s wrong or right, is not just a matter of personal insight. We shouldn’t have to worry about punks driving while intoxicated We shouldn’t have the stupid fights when people are annihilated We shouldn’t have to hear the many statements based on bigotry With negative references to gender, race and others sexuality. An honest mistake or an act of convenience? An honest mistake or a pure lack of common sense? Do we have no conviction for the words we like to say? Riding down this path of stagnancy, surly there’s a better way.. If we refuse to start to care then this is how things will stay. Think before you consume, think before you act If we don’t, nothing will change - It’s a proven fact. If we’re gonna sit back and complain about the laws we shouldn’t need, Then go and commit the very crimes on which law makers feed Don’t try to play “make-believe” in this false reality Where you steal from friends and don’t give a fuck while screaming “anarchy”. We talk about respect and autonomy but all that I see, is a lack of responsibility Sometimes the difference, between what’s wrong or right, is not a matter of opinion, or personal insight..
