We’re open-minded but shortsided We expect what we want We all try to act surprised When it all falls apart (that’s no surprise) We’re resolute but still confused We’re counting the cards We’re itemized / prioritized By how far we can fall While we compare ourselves to the grandeur of statues We’re lost within ourselves as we play to lose While we compare ourselves to paragons of virtue We’re lost within ourselves as we play to lose I’m crossing my name off I’m turning around I’m disconnected But glory bound

A nation bows to the altar of trash A fools golden god that needs to be smashed Lips always pursed spewing rhetoric In the simplest of terms so the simple gets tricked And it makes me fucking sick A nation drinks from the stream of shit Proudly they cheer as they fall for it A con artist dictator that loves a slogan America - from damaged to broken You charlatan fuck No way to defend You charlatan fuck We’ll celebrate your end

Headlines shift from murder to pop culture I can’t make sense of it Headlines shift from massacre to laughter I can’t make sense of it Headlines shift from despair to just hot air I can’t make sense of it This world is series of autopsy photos Examine and look not look away They’re placed in front of our faces Every morning of every day Everything gets weaponized Everything is greed Empty vessels for the bigger picture Blurred lines come off the screen Your protest song is lacking hooks So here’s some shit, repeat: As our rights are ripped away How does it feel to be free?

Another hour in slow motion I’m treading dirty water Dragged down the pacific ocean in a shudder Another minute in rewind I visit lonely ghosts Exhumed by what I find Pacing back and forth Another second in distress I’m making nothing clearer Every move I just regress and reflect in broken mirrors Throw me overboard so I can drown Anything to get a break from this sound Another week in disbelief Another week off course At our best when we’re asleep I’ve felt this once before Another day in disarray Always set to fail Depression is so passé when it’s not for sale I can’t relate to anything I can’t relate to you I can’t relate to what’s tolerable So I’ll see myself on through
6.
Take the stage They’re waiting A false prophet for profit An opportunist for glory With the promise of hell from a weaponized story With their Sunday best Tell them they’re saved Take ten percent from their annual wage Use their grief Use their shame Use their struggles Use their pain You can sell salvation You can sell it cheap Make seven figures when you prey on sheep

What brings me back What brought me here The cycle unbroken I reappear What brings me down What found me here A snake eats its tail So cavalier What holds me back What keeps me here The uncertainty To disappear

about

“Chicanery” was recorded in just a few days time by Zach Tuch (Trash Talk, Movements), later mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The album artwork was created by Mark McCoy (Youth Attack!, Full of Hell).

Musically the album is a hyper-aggressive whirlwind that has elements of the member’s previous musical efforts. Creating an unrelenting backdrop for Bolm’s biting lyrical commentary where he tackles social/political subject matter head-on.
