    Default After all these years, IDK what to make of this.



    A band that grew up in the L.A. suburbs is wondering how hell could be any worse. And not just once, they did it over:



    and over:



    and over:



    Now I've never been to the L.A. suburbs. I can imagine it's not pleasant. However, it's not Detroit, just how bad could it be?

    I don't think it's necessarily even supposed to be about that, more about just general stupidity that they found manifested in their home town as well as everywhere else

    On a related note I still find myself stunned at the lyrics compressed into 2-3 minute riff-fests:

    And progress is not intelligently planned;
    It's the facade of our heritage, the odor of our land. They speak of
    Progress, in red, white and blue.
    It's the structure of the future as demise comes seething through. It's
    Progress, 'til there's nothing left to gain,
    As the dearth of new ideas makes us wallow in our shame.
    So before you go contribute more
    To the destruction of this world you adore,
    Remember life on Earth is but a flash of dawn
    We're all part of it as the day rolls on.
    And progress is a message that we send.
    One step closer to the future, one inch closer to the end. I say
    That progress is a synonym of time.
    We are all aware of it but it's nothing we refine,
    And progress is a debt we all must pay.
    Its convenience we all cherish, its pollution we disdain
    And the cutting edge is dulling,
    Too many people to plow through.
    Just keep your fucking distance
    And it can't include you.
    It's
    Progress, 'til there's nothing left to gain, it's
    Progress, it's a message that we send.
    And progress is a debt we all must pay.
