about

"Irrationalism also depends on the cult of action for action's sake. Action being beautiful in itself, must be taken before, or without, any previous reflection. Thinking is a form of emasculation. Therefore culture is suspect insofar as it is identified with critical attitudes. Distrust of the intellectual world has always been a symptom of Ur-Fascism, from Goering's alleged statement ('When I hear talk of culture I reach for my gun') to the frequent use of expressions such as 'degenerate intellectuals,' 'eggheads,' 'effete snobs,' 'universities are a nest of reds.' The official Fascist intellectuals were mainly engaged in attacking modern cultural and the liberal intelligentsia for having betrayed traditional values."
- Umberto Eco, "Ur-Fascism" June 22, 1995

lyrics

No more redemption or rehabilitation
Only retribution: an eye for an eye
Abandoning utopia, embracing primal thirst
Our future is drenched in red

Dreaming of an end to all the needless strife
Intellectuals paint the way for humankind
Aversion from disaster into a brighter time
But screams for blood and payback drown their words
Tomorrow is too far to the people seeing red
But violence can gratify as soon as today
No patience for progress, and never caring why
They'll hang you by your neck and they'll watch you fucking die

Leaders take the call, a populistic cry
Rejection of progress, a push toward civil war
Spewing Fascist drivel in modern aesthetic

"Progress has failed us all
Intellects lie in the interests of the elite
No more talk- we all must take action now"

Myths are being written of who gets to thrive
Who needs to serve- and who needs to die
Pseudo-intellects drive their ego masturbation
with fairytales of chosen people of the greatest nation
The perfect narrative for uniting violent masses
Against the greater causes that conflict with elite interests
Narrowing the in-group of impressionable allies
Outsiders now silenced are fearing for their lives
Firing up the hordes, their blood thirst running high
The sweet taste of punishment edges ever closer
It can't be stopped- all reasoning and foresight is gone
A shallow ideology defined by opposition
Elimination of degeneracy at any cost
No vision for the future, nothing to strive for
This fantasy they've learned to fear is all they'll ever know

When you believe in nothing you'll fall for anything you're sold
Where did you think this was going to go? You've doomed yourselves

Fires consume the world they've come to hate
The ashes leave nothing to stand in its place
Foundations neglected and left to rot away
The bottom comes crashing down

The hunger of tyrants is never satiated
The circle of power is further concentrated
With no end in sight, the narrative is shattered
How could they not see this coming?
The world is still rotting- The underclass is dying
Screams of triumph turn to realization
You won't be spared- this future will eat you too
