Fixed Frequencies Lyrics

Artist: Propagandhi
Album: Potemkin City Limits

Here in the land that Abraham was promised to receive we listen to you catechize from your pulpit overseas. You mourn the proofs of our barbarity. Dry your eyes, oh Pharisee. We both speak a settler's cant. We both read from the same old played out scripts and hum familiar tunes, broadcast on fixed frequencies, stuck in locking grooves. We both profess noble intent as we civilize human impediments. So if your hands are clean then noblesse oblige that you wipe that "who me?" look off of your face and concede our designs separated by nothing more than place and time. Different scenes, same crimes. Pray, let him who's without sin cast the first statues of the former rogues turned folk heroes that your forefathers hung. Don't lecture me about plundered soil while you loaf upon your father's spoils. We want nothing more than what you already have: a comforting set of exculpatory "facts" like, say, the myth of an empty land and a conquest so complete we can pull these tanks from our streets and hand the loose ends over to bureaucrats and become just like you รข- lounging carefree in your cafes, absolved from sin and human grenades. Entre nous, how did your desert bloom?

These lyrics are wrong. Here's the corrections:

Land Abraham promised to receive: Old Testament reference-Abraham prophesied the coming of Jesus.
Its "a Settler's Cant we both speak" as in an old type speech (cant=speech)

Pharisees-Established Judaism, rejected Jesus

"Noblesse Oblige" mean if you are claiming to be royalty, then you must act like royalty

"exculpatory" means facts that may or not be true, but favor a desired outcome

"Entre nous" is a french term that means "between us" like "off the record"

This is an amazing, powerful song, in any genre.

Fuck, Hannah. Quit tooting your own horn for once.

Abraham was promised that his descendants would inherit the land now known as... Palestine. That is what this song is about; the American government criticising Israel's actions despite having settled in their own country on the same basis - As settlers, acting as if it was empty.
