about

War, it is what we do.

lyrics

a sign of warfare
refuse seekers burdened
with possessions
women, children, elders
seeking shelter
sleepless
ACK ACK ACK ACK BOOM
rat-a-tat in the jungle all night
flash bang, white phosphorous lights
who sticks around to see what death solves?
able bodies kill and die
shipments of medical supplies
sniper fire erupting on the hillside
near the treeline
send the napalm on them
as the mothers cling to babies
the wayward roam through lands made empty
ancestors bones disgraced on display
you should have know your sons would be slain
because you raised murderers

Rainstick Cowbell Portland, Oregon

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”
—Portland Mercury
