about

New Single!
This is a song about a kind of slippery-slidey fascism that just creeps up on you by accident.

lyrics

If you need a place to hide
I'll help, I'll keep you
Underneath my floor
Or the space above my house
When they come for you I'll swear
That you ran south
After the revolution
I will let you crawl back out

There's a reason they declined
Your civil rights card
'Cause you don't clean up nice
'Cause you're trying too hard
Every census answer
Leaves a little piece of cancer
In your brain and in your low back

No One Ever Dies From That

If you need a friend
To vouch for you
I'll run down to the registry
I'll swear you're one of the good ones
But if they promise me that civic pin
You better run back to your district
Else I'm gonna run you in

There's a reason we kicked down
Your door last night
Cause you agitate
Not just cause you do not love right
You're free to 'ssociate
We are way more free to hate
You say you're caged in like a starved rat
But no one I know feels like that

No One Really Feels Like That
And No One Ever Dies From That

There's a reason that we came
And took your children
Is it cause we're fascist
Or 'cause you're gonna kill them
Drink yourself to sleep and
Dream of some place all-inclusive
When you wake up in a month
You're surrounded by the ones you love

Hey, Hey
I Love You
Hey Hey
Don't Die
Hey Hey
We Love You
Hey Hey
Please Don't Die

about

Wax Mannequin Hamilton, Ontario

Adeney's music veers from scrappy prog oddness and distressed folk to absurdist stadium metal, all with a drunk, dark humour that borders on outright Dadaism.
Beneath the unsettling imagery and musical left turns there is a steady questioning of life’s inherent strangeness and his own neuro-divergent experience.
He has appeared on thousands of pub, gallery and festival stages worldwide.
