Aria 01:38
Aria: As always there’s nothing to fear As always we must not be scared Today is the day we will take them So we can breathe calm and clear My parents fought for their rights And their ancestors too Through pogroms and genocide We still have something to prove So link my arms within yours They cannot break our bonds They cannot break our spirit I against I, not through the unarmed We must be strong and resilient Just like our fore bearers were This system’s a teeming virus And we must fight for a cure

Youssef 03:15
Youssef: No one can ever see What is buried in my mind Deep and hidden underneath This placid surface that I keep That I build these walls around So no one can see and no one can reach Will I ever leave This closed in city we’ve endured With secrets buried in between The ash and bodies that they keep Shoveling the infected all battered and broken beyond their means Holy calamity Where’s your god now? They’re in the dirt buried six feet under Beneath the broken trees And the scorched earth And you wonder what you’re doing here No where to run No place to hide The UGF will find you and slaughter you So join the contra In the commune We can defeat them, we have the numbers They can break our skin and break our bones but they cannot break They cannot break they cannot break what can’t be broken

Yula 03:08
Yula: Never thought that I'd see What it means to make believe and still believe that this is happening I wanna fly To the stars to the sky to the stars to the stars to the sky to the stars and back again Never will I turn my back In solidarity we must face all of the drones and fight for our life but not just ours not just us not just them but of all all of us I know why I know why Never wanted to die but that’s just how it is Never wanted to live but that’s just how it is Never wanted to die but that’s just how it is Never wanted to live but that’s just how it is But I will never see And I will never speak A single sentence that does not ever repeat For all those empty promises that bring us to our knees Tragedy breeds tragedy while the virus teethes When I was young I watched the world die It rained from the stars carried down from the blackened sky And I screamed at god, “how could you do this to us?” But I never heard an answer Move forwards not back again Disconnect those empty thoughts with tarnished hands that break bread with the enemies of our enemies yeah Come collapse and still repeat we can’t break bonds In due time we will rise we will rise we will rise up again Awake at night and wonder why I’m by myself Awake at night and wish that I was somewhere else All this trauma all this pain that befalls me But who am I to disagree Laboring for credits that I can’t spend Take the gruel and chop it up to make me whole again We all lose we all win it’s all the same State gives state takes while we are maimed Awake at night and wonder why I’m by myself Awake at night and wish that I was somewhere else All this trauma all this pain that befalls me But who am I to disagree Laboring for credits that I can’t spend Take the gruel and chop it up to make me whole again We all lose we all win it’s all the same State gives state takes while we are maimed

Rory 02:44
Rory: Born by the Sea Fade into me A bottomless nothingness While I disagree Don’t call me a quitter Call me a Martyr We must preserve and protect For all the the water Calm and release Chattering teeth This time will be different A promise to thee The contra can save you The contra raise through UGF drones Who are here to reclaim truth Flight in the back of my mind Our heart’s buried in the sky

about

The year is 2755, the anti-fascist rebel alliance known as the Contra are gaining numbers and support in their opposition to the tyrannical imperialist United Galactic Federation (UGF). The Contra stand in stark opposition to the UGF which relies on interplanetary extraction and conquest to gain resources for the ultra rich. Rory, the head of the rebel alliance lives on the commune with hoards of rebel fighters including three comrades Yula, Aria and Youssef. This EP tells their respective backstories and viewpoints.
