    "Filthy Casuals" on archaic compact disc physical media! A CD in a cardboard sleeve that goes into one of those "CD players" you might have read about! For the true Law Boss completionist and/or survivalist who wants their music collection to survive a potential EMP blast. 100 copies and then they are gone (until we order more). Artisan duplication and printing performed by machines, possibly robots. Also makes a solid coaster, in a pinch.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Filthy Casuals via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: Severance
SEVERANCE

I will wait
While your left hand
Fights your right hand
While it all slips
Through your fingers
Like sand
In an hourglass
What you could have had

I will wait
While your left hand
Fights your right hand
And the grip on my neck
Slowly relaxes
Feels loose
While your other hand
Places the noose

I have severed my ties

I will wait
While my left hand
Holds my right hand
Stuck in a place
I can't escape from
Will this ever stop
There's no upper hand
When they're both interlocked

I have severed my ties

Hands on my heart
I could not lie to you
I never lie
Track Name: Face of the Oppressor
FACE OF THE OPPRESSOR

Slavery and war
are awful metaphors
denying all the pain
of humanity's disdain

I don't want a war
on drugs or poverty
Who will face their death or worse
in a war on Christmas?

You are not a slave
to the wage that you make
You are not a slave to love
or to the system

You will not be killed
for failure to obey
Think about your words
before its far too late

We bleed with might
This aimless rage
gives me such a fright
We will be the authors
of our fate
laden down by
thoughtless weight

I wear
the face
of
the oppressor

and it really
gets me down
Track Name: Transit
TRANSIT

This is your story
But the narrative unravels
Calculate the distance
Of all the roads you've traveled

Nothing's left for me here
I'll be back for you, my dear

Never out of time
But not enough speed
You'll never make orbit
Without escape velocity

Nothing's left for me here
I'll be back for you, my dear

The skyline on the driver's side
The city passes by
And I seem to stay in one place

The horizon never moves
A fixed point in the distance
Because the world revolves around you

Revolves around you

Celestial being that you are
A light to guide me forth
Brighter than any star
You're always my true north
Track Name: The Dogcatcher Election
THE DOGCATCHER ELECTION

They paid the levy
You took the lead
That crowns weighs heavy

It's not like the group ever had a say
We'd never have given the okay
You're qualified for nothing

You couldn't get elected dogcatcher in this town
Abysmal navigation
Our bodies will never be found

So we'll wait
For rescue
Wait for rescue
We're shipwrecked

Your motivation
Is so transparent
You need attention

How do we raise morale
We cannot survive if you don't know how
You're qualified for nothing

Save me

Rescue me
Track Name: Dinosaur Planet
DINOSAUR PLANET

Send out the signal
by sub-space wave
we have found the planet
to which the dinosaurs escape

They hide in far orbit
a distant KBO
underneath the methane ice
warm beneath the snow

Hidden in the caverns
far from hairy apes
evolving through a million years
in laboratory space

Growing into robots
eating metal shards
organic cyborg symbiotes
ready to travel the stars

Drop pod's down
Penny's on the ground
Infiltrate
and investigate
Join their clan
Figure out the plan
She must find a way
to ride along

Out from Sol
into the dark
Safe amongst the creatures
Generation ark
Far she'll fly
Beyond human eyes
Foreign stars await
She carries our fate
Track Name: Snapdragon
SNAPDRAGON

There is no result that satisfies
When nothing can evolve
If you have all the answers
There's nothing you cannot solve

There was tension in the air
You laughed at what I said
Did you find it funny?
Maybe I didn't care

I know it's bad for me
I know you're wrong for me
I know that you are poison in my veins
But still I drink it down

You say my temper runs too hot
But nothing boils without constant heat
And you were an inferno
Separate we're inert
But together we're so toxic
That nobody in the room can breathe around us

I know it's bad for me
I know you're wrong for me
You're a habit I can't quit
But still I drink it down
Track Name: Mr. Punchy
MR PUNCHY

You said that I
couldn't see
Where we were going
But then my eyes
only ever focused on you

You opened wide and swallowed me whole
Like a snake unhinging its jaw
You swallowed me whole

This isn't a message to you
Time isn't wasted, it's only misused
This isn't a message to you
It's a monolith obscuring the view

You blame yourself

You want what you
haven't earned
Just what you can take
But when will I
Learn a lesson
And stop making
The same mistakes

You opened wide and swallowed me whole
Like a snake unhinging its jaw
You swallowed me whole

This isn't a message to you
Time isn't wasted, it's only misused
This isn't a message to you
It's a monolith obscuring the view

You blame yourself
You blame yourself
It just wasn't your time

You blame yourself
You blame yourself
But I live the charmed life of a second son

You blame yourself
You blame yourself
I'll forgive you when it feels right
