  • Prayers Won't Save You - blue cassette tape + download
    Cassette + Digital Album

    Tape version of our latest and greatest release.
    SIDE A:
    "Prayers Won't Save You"
    "Dead End World"

    SIDE B:
    Blue cassette tapes with printed labels on side A, in white cases with card inserts which include ridiculously unreadably tiny lyrics on the inside.

    No download code included because you can go download it from BandCamp for free right now if you want:

    Choose "Afghanistan" as shipping location to arrange to pick up for free in person at a show, etc. BandCamp don't seem to allow you to put anything less than 25p for shipping so doing this will still add 25p to yer total (which is why the tape is listed as £3.75 and not £4).
    We also have to chuck like £1 extra on top because BandCamp take a cut of the cost. You'd be better off buying it from our BigCartel where it's cheaper, or come to a show where it's cheaper AND there's no postage.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Prayers Won't Save You via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Who died and made you moral arbiter?
Lines between holy and righteous have blurred.

No light,
Your guidance blindfolds the lost.
Fighting to beat their inner demons,
Lives come to a cross.
Your hand goes out but your motivation
Is your own wealth and your greed;
Selling tall tales of higher powers
To meet your own needs.

Prayers won't save you now,
So save your breath to make amends with those misled instead.
Holier than thou,
Prayers won't save you now, and they won't redeem your life at the hour of your death.

No shame.
Placing guilt on the innocent,
Pointing fingers and blaming others
To hide your own sins.

Holding on to thoughts
Outdated, from the past.
No thanks, "man of the cloth",
I'll carve my own path.

So tell your God that I am not ashamed of who I am,
I'd rather burn in hell than fake a smile and shake your hand.

So tell your God that I am not ashamed of who I am,
I'd rather burn in hell than shake your hand.
