How Do You Sleep? - Pink Mountaintops How do you sleep and who do you serve? Stomping your beat Don’t you ever get tired of running us down and bringing your heat The dead don’t forgive and the youth won’t retreat Who do you serve with that badge, officer? People or power, money, your ego There’s a time bomb ticking The thin blue line is tattered to shreds Restless, pissed, frustrated Fed up with your shit How do you sleep with the blood that has pooled? Tear gas, rubber bullets, on the necks that you’ve kneeled Jury, judge, hangman, but you’re just a scared pig Fuck tomorrow This raw nerve is spent How do you sleep and whom do you serve? How did it feel to watch your precinct burn? There’s drumming outside Is your gun to your head? We’re not asking We’re not begging We are shouting never again

Hold The Line Hold the line, Hold the line There’s a whole world of people wanna be where you’re going right now, There goes time, There goes time Fighting for the bullshit my mother told me I wouldn’t like But now, you see it wasn’t a lie You’re reaching for more than my life What happened to the man, with that big ol’ smile he’s calling to his mother now Whoooooooooooo Take my Life, Trade in mine He had everything that I wish I had, I aint even gonna lie See that Babe, See that Child Can’t imagine what’s flying through through her young mind now See that line? Hold that line! Cos’ big Bruh wishes he could be there now. I’m heavy, I’m Full I’m Tired I’ve seen it, for my whole life What’s different, is that now, I wanna tell my side. Hold the line, Hold the line There’s a whole world of people wanna be right by you right now There goes time, There goes time Fighting all the bullshit my mother told me I wouldn’t like Take my Life, Trade in mine He had everything that I wish I had, I aint even gonna lie It’s a shame.

The Unicorn Am I alone in this world Can’t find my zone in this world Don’t have a home in this world Must be an alien birth Cause its so strange here on earth I can’t relate to this scene All this corruption and greed All this destruction and grief I can’t get no relief How I long to be free Are you the same as me A Faery In the palace they feast On flora fauna and beast While in the dungeon she weeps Golden chains on her feet Only sorrow to eat I was born To free the unicorn From the forest we creep While in the castle they sleep Though the moat may be deep We will float like a dream Lord she shall be released We were born To free the unicorn ©Arjan Miranda 2020

Every time I’m screaming at your hollowback Like a drum in the desert Like a mirror in black You might close your eyes again but still you hear the sound Gunshots will pierce the sons keep you to the ground I can hear the pin drop When you find me sleeping on your bed of white Lies an empty conviction to hold through the night You might close your eyes again but still you hear the sound Gunshots will pierce the sons keep you to the ground I can hear the pin drop Every time I’m screaming looking at your hollow back Like a drum in the desert Like a mirror in black

Hey Ladies Hey Gentleman NO FEAR NO CONFUSION NO DIVISION // The love of love The love of skin on skin Document it It’s how we find our way back into it Your old way is breaking Now you’re on our terms The love of love The love of skin to skin And equity Try a little compassion You love our loving You love to listen in I love our loving You love a little skin on skin You love our skin to skin If you’re open jump (slow it down) We’re open for business, it’s on our terms (speed it up) We are here

*** Denotes previously unreleased tracks

(MSRP) $20.20

A compilation benefitting the Black lives matter movement. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Black Visions Collective.

Released exclusively on Bandcamp, this collection gathers unreleased tracks, live recordings, vintage cuts, demos, and previously released songs from some of the artists we work with. We put a call out for songs on May 30th and in less than a week this was the amazing response we got.

The original compilation was released on June 5th, and included the first 100 tracks. On June 19th, 14 bonus tracks were added (tracks 101-114).
