Western Addiction - The Church of Black Flag



Somedays you just feel like rocking out. An ominous, rumbling guitar intro and then release the hounds of hell.....Western Addiction are another band from San Francisco, forming in 2003 and featuring Ken and Chicken from Dead To Me, they released an album on Fat Wreck Chords called Cognicide (from which today's song comes) before splitting in 2006. Reforming in 2013 they released an ep (listen here : http://westernaddiction.bandcamp.com/album/pines ) and hopefully there'll be more to come. This is The Church Of Black Flag......

This is the church where Black Flag lives
Sentiments are born of desperation
Where good thoughts come from
Monuments in futility
Stress and anger, passion and humility
But we're above thumbs

This is the church where black flag resides
There's no profit, no success, just pride

Nil by mouth with prophetic paint
Autistic license, we're always poor and hungry
Art just doesn't pay
Finding beauty in ugliness
Compulsive strides are pensive and second best
This is on our chests

This is the church where black flag resides
There's no profit, no success and we're tired
We're tired!

This is the church free of cognicide
There's no profit, no success and we're tired,
In the church where Black Flag resides
There's no profit, no success, just pride
