As a loving mother would punish the wrong doing of her children, the time has come for us to own up to our foolishness. A solution that doesn’t invite death.


No I don’t trust you
I’d rather bust you than dust you
God never touched you
With nothing voluptuous
Unscrupulous at the molecular structure
Evil overtures
A heart unmuscular
Robber barons
Never sharing, uncaring
Your hate’s glaring
Somebody air him
Money minded dummy
Ain’t shit funny
Milk no honey
What you got for me
Hella lies, apple pies, blue skies
Pigs shoot, we die
Said the pink head blue suit red tie
I can’t pardon you cause I do mind

You can not be trusted
Lay your weapons down
You can’t be trusted
Life is not your game
No score, just pain
Sung to refrain
Until our voices
Stop us breathing
Time to pay for all your crimes
I’m taking all your guns

And the people say

You can not be trusted
Lay your weapons down
You can’t be trusted
Trained to be afraid
Of what you made
Sung to refrain
Until our voices
Reach your children
You have lost your privileges
I’m taking all your guns

Help me make it right
Help me make it right

You can not be trusted
Lay your weapons down
You can’t be trusted
The future was here
Though now unclear
Though now unclear

My fammo the ammo
The gorgeous collabo
Fire desired extremely flammable
Chemical weapons
Not needed to blam you
Damnable animals
Out here to scam you
Scanned out the canvas
Paint it like Khalo
Betray us and hate us
Spray us like Rambo
Invade us like Hannibal
My Blood got the heat
And we dance cause it’s jammable
Enhance the enhanceable
By chance we advanceable
Carry the torch to the capitol
Put you on blast
Then we laugh at you
Flash like a camera do
Take all your guns
And we melt them
And wear them as fashionable

Erik Blood Los Angeles, California

Erik Blood creates music that lives in the magic hour. His production is a nuanced secret told only to his co-conspirators (Shabazz Palaces, Moondoggies, THEESatisfaction most notably). After two albums and a film score, Blood is delving further inward, into the dream, and returning with tales and melodies that evoke the warmth between two bodies and the dizziness of love, sex, or other substances ... more
