This 7″ is a “massively multi-label split release” with an array of different DIY labels from different parts of the world chipping in to handle distribution.

Our goal is to get small quantities of our records to as many local scenes as possible to encourage hand-to-hand purchases and trades among labels and distros. Our hope is to use the occasion as an opportunity to strengthen our relationships with the international DIY punk conspiracy and to help further connect the network of ideas, music, and trade that happens outside the mainstream. We’re aiming for counter-culture, not sub-culture.

Track Name: Leaves Of Grass
death to my medicine
my medicine’s making me fall
it’s the fall
ten years went like nothing at all
i fell ten years ago
watching another two fall
smelled the burn
didn’t want to think about anything at all
a moment of clarity
another two rise
don’t want to be what they’d grow to despise
we stood four hundred feet above
forgot about work
found a new love
one for four
finding new goals
for my souls
Track Name: Occasion For War
the attitude of present man to war
the end of organizing ourselves by the threat of force
to look inside yourself and find that there is understanding
of that which takes away occasion for the never-ending war
Track Name: My Magnificient Sea
send a message to the world
my third reason is here with me
send a message to the world
my magnificent sea
Track Name: (No More) Warheads
no more warheads
no more heads of state
no more generals
targets to contemplate
dust and cinder
our world is laid to waste
nuclear winter
destruction of the human race
Track Name: The Profiteers
profiteers there’s blood on your hands
speculators a curse on your heads
a noose on the neck of who produce
on the neck of who provide the labor
by those who divide the labor
Track Name: Relived / Replayed
35 years of finding my way
i lost my mind my way
i waded through slime
been robbed of my days
i lost my mind my way
septembers the one that got in the way
i lost my mind my way
the day that i died relived and replayed
i lost my mind my way….
