Excerpt from ‘Unreality’
“Bradley has been making steady progress toward reducing his therapy. This afternoon a new crease appeared. Though not troubling in terms of its potential for physical harm, it offers a window as to how profound Bradley’s condition might be.”

Lyrics:
Policy of war want more
Callous in your thinking need belief in
What you’d like to find a little piece of mind
But you only find the clandestine

Do as they say — stop thinking
Ask why — they lie
Straight line — cross ties
Genocide — life crime

Bark or bite with no reason why
Future crimes mankind
Graze the sheep are all rolling by
Man and slaughter — we’re all fine…just fine

Do as they ask, back off, behave
With their thoughts, your life
Their grip, feel life slip

All bark, no bite
Feel insane, that’s normal
No one likes this order
Time to ride let’s ride

All this bark all of this might… is it worth the fight
Change is hard for one, imagine global one
All this pain and suffering just go away
If we stopped to think – think

‘Protest 100’s mission is two-fold: dispelling the myth that heavy metal is a brainless, socially unaware music genre, and raising awareness of the issues facing our country in the Nov. 3, 2020 election. The path won’t be exclusively metal—some punk and rap and other stuff will be in here too, including the classics—and is not a ranking. All songs are songs I’ve heard while putting this list together, ordered in a manner designed to entertain and educate.
