Hello all,

  I have had this song on my computer for awhile but today after arguing politics and then banning my nephew from my FB page as he has gone full bore Fox (we were never close anyway) this song seems to resonate a lot more.

  Innerpartysystem : This Town Your Grave

Lyrics for those who cannot hear or download it.

Face down in a population that God has left behind,
In these barren streets the neon lights will be your guide.
All their limbs are stretched holidng tight what could have been,
No-one here is innocent because we can't forgive.
God made this place a haven for the motionless and weak,
A paradise of endless hope no progress to be seen.
The houses are abandoned by those who could escape.
While we will be the future and you,
You will never change.

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, He made this town,
This town, your grave.
The cross they bear,
A burden that they just can't stand.
They're holding on to nothing, time is slipping through their hands.
So easily they point the finger the first to pass the blame.
While we will be the future and you,
YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.

YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, he made this town,
This town, your grave.

(Stop.. This town is your grave)

(YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE.)

Washing your hands in blood won't take away the stain.
Since there's no room in heaven, he made this town,
This town, your grave.

Republicans don't want change, they don't want hope, they don't want progress. They survive on fear, on hopelessness and degradation. When you hear the emotion in the singers voice it is the sound of all the millions of people in this country that want to destroy the current incarnation of the Republican party. At least today that is what it feels like for me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
