it ain’t a choir #109

if you’re stopping to create the insignia then the revolution has already failed leave the flags for the kings or men that say they can speak to god flags every flag every fucking flag is a trap



it ain’t a choir #110

leave the wood carry the metal forget about the lead if we leave the woods behind us there’s a chance they can become a full forest if we return we can return without the need to smelt ever again



it ain’t a choir #111

it’s serious but if it becomes a business the money will only be encouraged to follow us that parade is unending we don’t have access to that kind of quarry space
