STRAIGHT PANIC New Orleans, Louisiana

Queer Power Electronics from Minneapolis, MN, (2014-2016) relocated to New Orleans, LA in 2017

Track Name: Fasces
The blade
extends from the post
surrounded by branches
leather bound
gilded gold leaf

Any one of us
may be broken
under black banners
and red chevron's trumpet blare

We stand before the masses
part and parcel
vox populi cries "blood!"

from here on
we shall deliver
Track Name: التطيين
I am not ashamed
I will wander
For forty days
To stand in the desert,
To own my pain

I will stand ready
Before I kneel to dead gods

I refuse to die
on my knees

I ask for neither life
nor retribution

I rebuke both
Track Name: Leviticus 20:13
I spit in the face of God
Take your feeble Christ
Who hangs dead upon a cross

Take your torture camps
and lock yourselves in them.
Shutter the windows
and burn them down.

Have you tried to stop being the victim?
Have you tried to stop being weak?
Have you tried to stop being prey?

Wicked in heart and mind
Unholy in spirit
Prideful and cruel

I look upon the face of God
and I wept
when the lamb laid down
with the lion
for thou art with me
in the kingdom of the shadow of death
Track Name: Vir Cum Viris

I stand before you,
dishonorable men

You, with your judgement
who will not look me
in the eyes.
I concede nothing.

Men with Men

A band of brothers
A golden legion
Track Name: Faggot (In Unitate Est Virtus)
Dear sisters and brothers
This family not of blood and soil
but of desire and sacrifice

We are no longer kindling
Too long have we fueled
the fires of inquisitions
witch hunts wash over us
generation after generation
until our piled bodies
cemented with ash
rise from the tide

Ours is the hidden army
true sleeper cells
of righteous fury
Ours is the moral majority
no longer shall we be made
to lick boot and heel
bereft of pageantry

This is our spell of destruction
Cast upon the world
as a fog across eaons

Behind our faces
is Mother Kali Durga
dead goddess bringing death

Look into our eyes
and see your end
