about

Hard Left Oakland, California

Hard Left is a political punk band inspired by liberatory leftist movements of the past and present. Our music is a soundtrack for direct action, an invitation to critical thought and a challenge to complacency. We privilege the "we" over the "I" and argue for the centrality of class struggle in our collective battle against neoliberalism, authoritarianism and imperialism. ... more

Track Name: Safety
Flag pin, dollars and a smart salute
Hand on your heart while they grab the loot
Don’t start shit, don’t even move
Comrade, you’ve got something to prove


Safety!
You’ve got more than you can use
Safety!
Don’t be happy to choose

Don’t talk back or you’re down on a list
Accidental death of an anarchist
Force your smile and clench your fist
Your freedom, comrades, depends on this


Safety!
You’ve got more than you can use
Safety!
They’ll be happy to choose for you


Comrade, you’ve got something to prove
Track Name: Ghosts Of Princes In Towers
Ain't it fascinating the difference between those who have

You know there's those who make it and there's those who never may


And it's fascinating because it's really very clear

You've either got it honey

Or you ain't...



Well you go and you tell me your ambitions

But then you say Rome wasn't built in a day

But Thomas the Imposter he lived a lie

It didn't matter at all that was his way…

Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They're the soft boys and how

Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They're the sharp ones - they're now...



So these Ghosts, these Princes in Towers

Seems to me they've got it made
'
Cos they sulk and they strut for no reason

Well maybe they ain't afraid...



Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They're the soft boys and how

Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They're the sharp ones - they're now...




And it's ONE - remember number one

TWO well it's true

THREE so free and easy that

Be FOUR too long you come back to this...


Just a'singing 'bout

Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They're the soft boys and how

Ghosts of Princes in Towers

They are the sharp ones - they're now!
