about

This song was written while watching the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. It is dedicated to rape apologists, anyone who’s ever said all lives matter, boys will be boys or can’t we all just get along, and those of us who habitually strive for quiet before justice.

lyrics

De-escalator
Who are you trying to help?
De-escalator
Is it mainly yourself?
What is the role that you play?
Neither hero nor villain, no way
You can't walk this line forever
You can't walk this line forever
You can't walk this line forever

Quiet abstainer
When will you make your stand?
Prideful disarmer
When will you play your hand?
Circling till nothing makes sense
Explaining away each offense
You can’t walk this line forever
You can’t walk this line forever
You can’t walk this line forever

De-escalator
How do you think it ends?
De-escalator
How will you make amends?
How can you feel for both sides?
Is it cuz you’ve got something to hide?
You can’t walk this line forever
You can’t walk this line forever
This line will become the blade
