Casus belli

Line up fodder citizens your spot has been chosen the grass on this side isn't growing
There is not nearly enough blood and money flowing to fuel this tyrannical diplomacy
Minimum wage stifling the slaves not before capitalism puts them in place

representative of degenerate generations american hysteric attention deficit nation
heavily invested in a message and a weapon of aggressive
expression intention of ascension and prevention of our desolation
(intention of ascension and prevention of our desolation)

philosophical walls separating consciousness by continents consonants
8 billion conduits as electromagnetic objects generating static
and the resonance is deafening
no one even knows how loud it gets
living on the mothership of optical illusion
profitable delusion from inhospitable confusion
not a single view is lucid

everybody's screws are loose
were all the same shit constantly abusing it
everybody's screws are loose
were on the same shit constantly abusing it (abusing it)

death grip vices neck slit prices the best shit will leave your mind spliced
take a big hit you'll get a quick fix and it'll make you sick to be addicted to the virus
feelin like an animal in a land full of cyborgs

Trapped in these walls not as a king but a mere peasant
soldier labor with no future to line their pockets in the present
Greed and power turns man animalistic survival of the richest but every check just bounces
Created our own system from liters to ounces
Traversed oceans to build anew kingdom giving up on monarchy and questing for freedom

Everybody's screws are loose
were all the same shit constantly abusing it
its been goin bananas
hitting the fan like splittin an atom.
Ignorant manic masses rampant tangents simpleton gorilla tantrums
no homosapien
no engaging in the way I've been behaving in the day to day like we never came a long way from the caves
yet I'm STILL trying to get ourselves up outta the basement

Why would i wanna dumb it down to the basics
Why would I wanna dumb it down
infinite stages. primitive ages. mumblin, stumblin, faded. inebriated. fumblin patience
Primates into man
Evolution let them stand
In between.
Cultured by decree of deliverance upon demand
I'm outnumbered a hundred to one.

Ashes of Alexis Neenah, Wisconsin

We are on the pursuit of infinite metal glory.

Ashes of Alexis is:

The relentless beatings of Brandon Dodd on drums, the twisted, articulate riffs of Jordan Allen and Jordan Bradford on guitar, the slams and pops of Andrew White on bass, the profound keys and vocals of Kyle Cowling, and the unapologetic poetry of Robert Ellis as lead vocalist. This is the ultimate formula for Ashes of Alexis.
