Yay! My Wake Art submission is complete! Music lifts our spirits when we are sad, lends us energy when needed, adds joy when we are happy, builds community, provides anthems for protest and generally provides the soundtrack for our lives. I believe that music is the answer. My wake art features a decoupage of photos of live performances from a plethora of bands hailing from the hardcore, punk and indie music scenes that all embody the essence of “only music has the answer.” Please support your local music scene and check out these bands.

BAD RELIGION - "Submission Complete"

Dedication's the price you pay.
The initiated are coddled and caged.
Before you walk, as soon as you crawl.
Hope is pointless when you're stuck in the trawl.

Fuck the freshman lectures and brandishments.
They just betray impoverished accomplishments.
The puppet masters fear originality.
They tighten up the tethers and they shackle your feet.

Submission complete.

Young recruits never have a chance.
Enticed to the drill, admonished to dance.
Early to rise and early to shine.
Life is long, but the end is nigh.

Break the guilty trammels from yesteryear.
Remember how rejuvenation conquers all fears.
Lowly opportunists take commanding roles
And hawk ultimatums so their weakness won't show.

The sad reflection
Of dead ambition.
You live for nothing, submission complete.

Yeah, break the guilty trammels from yesteryear.
Remember how the taste of failure makes it all clear.
Lowly opportunists take commanding roles
And hawk ultimatums so their weakness won't show.

The sad reflection
Of dead ambition.
You live for nothing.

Expectation.
Indoctrination.
Life's damnation, submission complete.

Dying on your feet.
Submission complete.
A total defeat.
