The fourth track from our upcoming album, Overdraft.


In other countries people take to the streets
when they're mad at those who run the police.
In my country people take to the streets
when those who run the police say it's cool.
Today it's cool.

You can eat til your gut's busted,
and your kid can get his face painted.
Government's fallin' all around here,
but fuck it let's have a beer or some wine.
Just pass the time.

In the asphalt garden
it's nobody's fault.

Fast-forward a decade or so,
you've eaten your neighbor's torso,
carved up his kids with a knife,
taken his honey as your seventh wife
cause you do what you wanna do.

Every now and then the President speaks
live from Belgium by satellite feed.
He's too scared to live in his own country.
Doesn't matter if he's an R or a D or an I,
they'll eat him alive.

In the asphalt garden,
it's nobody's fault.
In the asphalt garden,
please call the cops.
In the asphalt garden,
it's not assault,
when you've killed all the cops.
