about

"There has been a lot of talk recently about how the arts are dead in San Francisco. The rising influx of tech industry workers, mixed with an out of control housing market, has forced many of San Francisco's residents with a lower income (including many artists and musicians) out of the city. We wrote this song as a tribute to those who are still fighting to make their music or create their art. We have to stand our ground and keep making our art despite all the odds being against us.
To stop making art means we all lose."

lyrics

City full of ants afraid of taking chances
they tunnel blindly as they carry their load.
There's no making plans, there's no second glances
just keep consuming, there's no other way to go

And the rent goes up to the point we can barely make it
Still they load us up to the point that our backs are breaking

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

Weak from all the beatings, sick from your forced feedings
We band together and we plan our escape
We grind through the dirt and the grime
But we know that one time, we'll break through to our fate.

And the walls cave in
The art from our home is now scattered around us.
We rebuild again.
Make it better than when we found it.

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

We're beginning to see the light.
Keep climbing, keep climbing

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow
