Play Opposites was written in a state of high anxiety over the impending doom/clear possibility that our nation would be in the wrong (terrifyingly wrong) hands. That we are going backwards, regressing, after so much work moving forward. Basically... how did it come to this? Why are people saying one thing, and doing another? We cant just sit, complacent, and watch the world burn. We have to dig deep and arm ourselves w/ knowledge, compassion & action.


Hey why don't we go
and play opposites
cut the main line
destroy what we have
hey why don't we go
and play opposites
burn it to the ground
there aint nothing left

Is this what you wanted, Mother,
empty shells to fill your hole?
Talk to me just like my father,
is this what it means to be free?

Hey why don't we go
and play opposites
trigger and divide
the starved and overfed
there aint no compromise
until you clean your hands
wash it all away
and open up your eyes
