This is one of my favorite songs on our side of the After The Fall split 7”. I wrote it while we were in an area of the country whose radio stations play only County, Western, and Country-Western. A gentleman was condemning “sodomites” for tarnishing the image of the United States, making it into “the Whore of Babylon.” Empathy was my response.
“I lit a candle in church just to watch it burn. Light up the room! Empathy is more than faith in words or prayers whispered to statues.”
One of the coolest CL songs, so short and punchy and fucking awesome.
