The Deadly Rhythm (3:35)

Cover of The Shape of Punk to Come

From The Shape of Punk to Come and 1 other release

Stuck by the deadly rhythm of the production line. Stuck by the conditions set by the capitalist market. Stuck by the necessities of living and forced to take part. If we are tired it is because we are supposed to be and if we are hungry it is because we have to be and if we are bored it is because it is expected of us. Bored and chained and stuck and dead. New forms of work camps are arranged and new ways of hiding the monotonous beat of slavery are being presented. The preliminary condition required for propelling the workers to the status of “free” producers and consumers of commodity was the violent expropriation of their own time. The spectacular return of time was made possible only after this dispossession of power. Urbanism is capitalism’s seizure of the natural and human environment; developing logically into absolute domination, capitalism can and must now remake the totality of space into it’s own setting. Time, work, environment and joy all have their norms set by modern ways of production.

This union made us powerless is talking over our heads
Claiming prosperity in a downward spiral plan

    This is what currently carries the mantle of *art punk* music. This album is incredible within the genres it spans across, but there's a lot more artsy music than this.

    "Hope a new breed of punk bands emerge from this song." Refused are an older band. A lot of people would consider them the fathers of post -punk / post-hardcore

    The drum fill leading into the bass solo is the best part of this song

    My favorite on the album. My girlfriend's dog barks at the end of the song when Dennis is screaming every single time, but not at all during the other songs. Its almost like there is a dog whistle frequency going on.
