about

“...since we’d only taken down four or five kids, they were giving our company missions because we were known for not hitting civilians.” - IDF Paratrooper - Our Harsh Logic: Testimonies From the Occupied Territories

lyrics

Looking through the cracks at the whitened, bloody corpses 

Of the children who came to hide from our superior morality

With my stomach turning like the blade of a blender
I force it back inside me

I beamed my pride vociferously, but I still eat their agony - oh!

We keep on telling ourselves that we're so fucking civilized

And that every action we take is somehow something we can justify 

But I know why those rockets fire, ‘cause I've seen life inside the wall 

And you know it don't leave any of us with much of an alibi at all

I've got to get right out of here

Just pack my shit and disappear 

Gotta get right out of this place

Find my self in another space

And for a holy land a true saint is so hard to find

We’ve got the bloody truth dripping down our fingers and it don't feel right

You can dedicate this hate to whatever you need to make you feel OK

But I've got no more inside of me and I've just got to get away

I've got to get right out of here 

Just pack my shit and disappear 

Gotta get right out of this place

Find my self in another space

I've got to get right out of here 

Just pack my shit and disappear

Gotta get right out of this place 

Find my self in another space 

I've got to get right out of here

Just pack my shit and disappear

Gotta get right out of this place 

Disappear without a trace!

about

The Martyr Index Calgary, Alberta

The Martyr Index is your favourite fist-in-the-air, banner-flying, ol' dirty pinko rock and roll band, hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Surrounded by the opulence of what could be considered the Bahrain of North America, they are exactly the kind of contradiction that you would expect from a quasi-anarchist discourse feeding off the fruits of unrepentant frontier capitalism. ... more
