    The much anticipated coloring book is here. Art, Lyrics, Crayons, Music. What more could you ask for?

    **ATTENTION - Although the item is listed as "Record/Vinyl," it is not in fact a vinyl record. It is a coloring book (with a digital copy of the music included). The Bandcamp store isn't as hipster as we are and did not anticipate the future, so we had to improvise. Apologies for any confusion.

about

Recorded live in studio at Inhesion Studios in Lilburn GA, and featuring Jon Lorentz (Sweetie Pie) on keys, this song is largely a reaction to the politics of the last 4 years. Liberty is traditionally performed in a delta blues guitar picking style, but for this recording we thought to feature the organ a bit more.

lyrics

Its been 4 years and counting on that one night stand
We all fell down pretty hard, but we're getting up again
The monster in me is taking all the credit
But there's a knight in shining armor just waiting for his moment
One million people marching put us in the right direction
But there's an ignorance that I'm still seeing that's looming like a great depression
Darlin what I'm saying is bide your time because change is coming.

When I was young my mother asked, "When you grow up what will you be?"
Prepare yourself for sights unseen because every day is changing
And when the time it comes to take the lead, be brave enough to stand on your seat
Set aside your differences, she said darlin speak loudly
Because liberty is a cold beer after a long work week and I am thirsty.

I'll say what it takes, its a mouth full of blood, but that's alright because we are used to the taste
It burns like a flame, but pain is like nicotine, more we want more, we want more.

So when everybody's living scared saying its the president's fault
Tell them turn those fingers inward because what the fuck have you done lately?
And when the media is shelling bombs of social inequalities
Well there's a quote that I learned long ago that comes to mind in times like these
Give me your tired, give me your poor huddled masses yearning to breath free.
