about

Moving Trains is a forthcoming concept album about the illusion, and impossibility, of political "neutrality" in a fundamentally oppressive world and in a time of immense ecological and economic crisis.

On 5 May 2014, I released a music video for "Middle of the Railroad."

Track Name: Middle of the Railroad
You can’t be neutral on a moving train.

The world is burning.
The System is a moving train,
speeding down an unmarked path to total annihilation.

“Neutrality” means complicity.
“Apolitical” means facilitating.
“Reform” means prolongation.
Complicity in the murder.
Facilitating the destruction.
Prolongation of the needless suffering.

You can’t be neutral on a moving train.

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”
(-Desmund Tutu)

The economic and political system is the elephant.
And we, the rest of us, are the mice.

I dare you.
Try being neutral on a moving train.
You’ll get run over.
Squashed flat.
Trains wait for no one.

Hey, guess what?

You can’t be neutral on a moving train.
You’ll get run over.
Squashed flat.
Trains wait for no one.
