about

This is our first bit of music made in 2021 and it's a benefit single – with all proceeds going to Bristol Defendant Solidarity as they have a call for support for people sentenced to prison after the Kill The Bill protests in Bristol in March 2021.

Over 78 people have been arrested and 28 people have been charged. Three people are already in prison. Throughout the coming months, more and more people will be imprisoned after resisting police violence.

LYRICS:

Close the door
It’s a war on the poor (x12)

--

Edging ever closer
to a fascist state
Removing the right to protest
Dividing us with hate

The press calls it sleaze
But it’s pure corruption
Not fit for purpose
We need an eruption

Don’t forget your papers
For our new internal borders
The ones who stand to profit
Denying our disorders

The crooked at the wheel
Driving us round the bend
We’re stuck on plague island
A call to arms we send

--

Are we too divided
to make a stand?
The glue doesn’t bind
the flames they are fanned
We’re out here
drawing lines in the sand
Can we please escape
from plague island? (x2)

--

Top of the leader board
We got a high score
Don’t watch that, watch this
A war on the poor
Contracts to your besties
Or matey next door
Bragging about statistics
As the bodies hit the floor

They robbed the public purse
With no calls for their demise
Pulling off heists
And cutting old ties
Rock the boat hard to make it capsize
“And Bully’s special prize…!”

--

Go outside
Stay indoors
Go out
Eat out
Stay outdoors
Don’t go inside
Eat someone out
Be a grass
Stay off the grass
Space face
Track and trace
You would be ill advised
To become ill with this advice
Reread the instructions
To stay informed (x4)

--

Are we too divided
to make a stand?
The glue doesn’t bind
the flames they are fanned
We’re out here
drawing lines in the sand
Can we please escape
from plague island? (x2)

--

Close the door
It’s a war on the poor (x4)

about

Killdren Royal Tunbridge Wells, UK

Killdren are a two-bit rave-punk band with a smelly attitude who hail from Tunbridge Wells.

Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety,
Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.
