My Civilization’s Dying

When I was a teen/tween, music kept me alive and sane. One of my favorite bands was the Zero Boys. This song crystallizes that moment in time:

The really fucked up thing about the song is that it could be written today:

Civilization’s dying
And no one’s realizing
The position of hate stuck inside the gun

Civilization’s crying
And I won’t try to deny it
We got a problem son,
Something’s gotta be done

With the Pope
And the president
And the big rock star who made a lot of money
All got one thing in common
They know it ain’t no fun to get shot with a gun

Civilization’s dying
And no one’s realizing
The position of hate stuck inside the gun

Civilization’s crying
And I won’t try to deny it
We got a problem son,
Something’s gotta be done

Civilization’s dying
And no one’s realizing
The position of hate stuck inside the gun

Civilization’s crying
And I won’t try to deny it
We got a problem son,
Something’s gotta be done

With the Pope, and the president, and the big rock star who made a lot of money
Made a lot of money, made a lot of money, made a lot of money
Yeah!

I get to feeling like shit, like we’re stuck in this fucking negative loop of corruption, stupidity, and hatred. And then…
