Fuck the Message

I feel. That is a phrase I use often because I in fact feel a lot of things. I feel happy when I’m with my dogs and girlfriend. I feel a connection when someone is singing along to our songs. I feel angry that we live in a world where people value there monetary compensation over basic human decency. I feel hatred for police officers, politicians and bankers who abuse their power and use the phrase “I was just doing my job” in the attempt to justify evil behavior. I feel sad for those who are forced to struggle due to circumstances out of their control. 

However, all of these feelings that I have running through me, what do they mean? What good are they if I don’t use them to engage myself towards some sort of change? What good can a message or feeling be if they are not backed up by action? Thus in lies a very visible problem. 

"I feel" as though we have allowed this music that we claim means so much, to become nothing more for emotional porn for us to use to jack off our feelings and leave us wanting more time and time again. To me, this music is a movement. The key word being "MOVE". To me, without an action to back words that we so passionately scream, destroys the very foundation of its message. And the more I thought about it, the more this one phrase kept returning to me like some sort of fucked up boomerang:

FUCK THE MESSAGE

I can’t in good conscience continue to allow myself to sing songs of revolution without the back bone to stand and fight for something I truly believe in. I’m not here to suggest you sell of your things and go join green peace or anything like that. I simply suggest that we, at the very least, sit and think on the words we sing and ask ourselves, what do they mean? What can I do to give back? How can I “Start Today”? 

Join us and lets sing these songs like we used to. Like they actually meant something.
