about

Ein Song, welcher aus den Erfahrungen des Kampfes um den Erhalt des JuKuz Oetinger Villa in Darmstadt entstanden ist, Mitte der 0er Jahre. Für den Erhalt von selbstbestimmten und unkommerziellen Kulturräumen!

lyrics

Verse 1:
an unfriendly takeover of subcultural retreat
a culture without space is easier to defeat
underground flair immitated by mainstream, dillution of the roots
what you get is a new brand to sell, free of critical attitudes

Verse 2:
there was a threat that we ignored, we almost waited too long
but we didn't avoid confrontation, put pressure back on them quite strong
if they make you believe they're all powerfull, their aim is half way reached
frustate their plans and don't give way, you might succeed if you don't leave

Refrain:
mainstream regime puts pressure on you
don't let 'em drive you away
remember the mission of every subculture
to face the mainstream today

Verse 3:
don't let subculture end up in itself, be always conscious of what you stand for watch out
don't loose direction by splitting hairs with the subculture next door
always keep a critical view, even if pressure seems far away
there is more than being against, fight for your virtues and pave 'em the way

Refrain:
mainstream regime puts pressure on you
don't let 'em drive you away
remember the mission of every subculture
to face the mainstream today

mainstream regime puts pressure on you
don't let 'em drive you away
remember the mission of every subculture
to face the mainstream today

mainstream regime puts pressure on you
don't let 'em drive you away
remember the mission of every subculture
to face the mainstream today
