It was an absolute joy to draw Speck for this Secret Mixter and work with his vocals, beats, and sounds. Bringing Unreal_DM along for the ride felt right… Speck and I both often use Unreal_DM’s splendid instrumental backing tracks for song-starters. I already knew Speck’s politics line up with mine… so his song of resignation naturally spoke to me… and I had to add some hope. And with that, I hope you dig, Speck (and all). And I hope you hold onto hope.



WORDS - by Speck and Kara Square

Can you identify, please?
Identify yourself!
Please identify.
Uhhh… we have no confirmation on identification…
Please respond:

I’m sick and I’m tired
and I’ve given up hope
Narcissism and dementia
is a slippery slope

I can’t remain peaceful
and still read the news
So I’m deleting the bookmark
that’s feeding the blues

It seems pretty obvious
the people in charge
have no problem screwing
the people at large

Ok, you win
Just for now
Ok, you win
Just for now

Now it’s time for a verse more hopeful than the first…

There’s now way we’ll let them
Go on like this
The resistance is growing
Let’s all raise our fist

As the people in charge
Attack from all sides
The people on the ground
Keep growing in strides

I hope in the future
love and logic have clout
Progress will happen
Keep fighting all doubt

My heart can’t take it

We’re in this together

Ok, you win
For now
Ok, you win
Just for now
