||"Einen Scheiss muss ich"
||Do not expect this not to get messy,|
||"A Heart as Black as Coal"
||but also do not expect your enemies to always stay|

||"Everyone You Meet"
||This is one of the many ways to explain the intrinsic power of curiosity: people can change, and even if they can't, maybe these aren't actually the people you thought they were.|
||"Blood and Chalk"
||The new streets will be paved down almost the same lines where the old ones ran.|
||"Time After Time"
||We have said all of these things before, but they can mean new things when we say them again.|
||"Waking Up Slow"
||We breathe in joy and hold it inside for a moment.|
||"What About Us"
||These breaths have always escaped us before,|
||so we have learned to not trust the air.|

||Across the Atlantic
||Emotions, feeling, touch, contact, strikes.|
||"Out of the Dark"
||This devolved logic emanates from inside of us.|
||Cost of Living
||Nobody looks at Trump's simpering heartlessness and says "People are not like this."|
||He is totally one of us.|
||Trailer Trash Tracys
||"White nationalism" is despicable and pathetic and idiotic, but it's not like we imagined that this kind of terrified toxicity would never fester again.|
||"Better You Cry"
||We are not self-correcting machines.|
||"Enemy of Truth"
||Our potential for nobility is inherent and infinite, but our actual nobility is wrested out of our basest impulses and our most impulsive bases.|
||Cradle Of Filth
||"You Will Know the Lion by His Claw"
||You will know the truly lost by the way they refuse to be found.|
||"Under Frusna Stjärnor"
||Under Frusna Stjärnor +1
||And we will meet them in the streets, for show, but you'll notice that they never have streets of their own.|
||They are architects who don't know what it means to build, programmers who seem untouchable when they're answering their own questions|
||"Crown Of The Twilight"
||but helpless and infantile when they have to ask them of anyone else.|
||It's not merely circular that the racist South needed slavery.|
||A narcissist's idea of industry is slaughtering scapegoats.|
||The nazis will march in the streets, because the sensation of unearned embattled superiority is not a response to persecution,|
||"Battle! Team Skull Leader (From "Pokémon Sun & Moon")"
||Intense Symphonic Metal: Pokémon

||Sin Homura Uta
||He would point out that the South already tried to run on black nonrenewable fuel once.|
||"Moumoku De Arugayue No Sogaikan - Sin"
||He would understand that holding tightly to statues of losing generals from long-ended wars is not cultural dignity,|
||it's chronic cross-generational constipation.|
||Once A Tree
||If your gods ask you to hate, you have the wrong gods.|
||If you think your gods ask you to hate, those are not gods.|
||That's not even hate.|
||True hate is nihilism, and nihilists do not organize.|
||That furious feeling with which your skin crawls, it is always fear.|
||That skin sensation, which you think is disgust at those people and their ways,|
||it is your soul, drowning in what you've swallowed.|
||Robert E. Lee would tell you that defeated flags live on in histories of heraldry, but there's no reason to keep making them out of cloth.|
||"Trenches and Charms - Single Version"
||Trenches and Charms (Single Version)
||And when you fly them, you forego the protection of the treaties.|

||We do not exercise a right to war, you surrender your right to peace.|
||Lee would have seen your backyard torches and your rented vans and would have said|

||"The Deepest Sighs, the Frankest Shadows"
||"I do not lead you. I did try to lead evil to a brief procrastinators' triumph once, but when that failed I tried to lead the flayed through their naked surrender,|
||and for my efforts now you put on these same clothes?|
||All you had to do was live in these towns like normal human beings,|
||with all this help you didn't earn but deserve because you are human, too,|
||and you failed.|
||Dawn of Disease
||"Beneath The Waters"
||We were horrifically and obviously and always wrong, but at least we did it with more dignity.|
||Jorn Van Deynhoven
||You are not my people.|
||Go home and apologize to your children,|
||The Wise Man's Fear
||The Lost City
||apologize to your neighbors,|
||"Rites of Investiture"
||apologize to yourselves.|
||To Feel Like You're Drowning
||The South will rise again only when it is free of you.|
||"Real Life Monsters"
||If you must burn books to stay warm, start with the story of how Mason and Dixon were dissolute bothers who squabbled over their father's insurance-fraud fortune, and built a wall between their adjoining yards.|
||Kill the Kong
||On one side, a ladder ascends to a blank surface.|
||On the other side, an unslidable slide descends from an inaccessible height.|

||"Kinda Missing You"
||When Trump can't distinguish between many sides,|
||"The Morning After"
||when ISIL exalts cowardly murderers,|
||when parasites in the land of opportunity try to claim shared truth as their own,|
||we know that this changes nothing.|

||One day we will learn to live forever.|
||One day we will learn to see ourselves in every other face.|
||"Let 'Em Talk"
||Yesterday was not that day. Not yet.|
