Songs



Snowing "Important things (Spectre Magic)" This song by snowing  describes lead vocalist John Galm's battle with depression through self medication and insomnia and how he is unable to see his father in the eyes after his death. This song inspired the new revival of modern emotive music.



Hinds "Bamboo" This light hearted summery piece of music originally was written for acoustic as an ep release however it got a full band re-release on their debut album. This track explores themes of a one sided unrequited relationship with the lead singer trying to remind the other that they will not always be there and not to get to attached.




Andrew Jackson Jihad "People II: The Reckoning" This song is about a nihlistic satirical world view on the global consumerist views of Western society and it's effect on the average American person. It also has a self enlightened view on how hindsight is the only way of ever seeing the correct thing.



JANK "Caitlyn" This is a retrospective song about his youth and imaginary friend Caitlyn


Merchant Ships "Sleep Patterns" This narrative song follows the narrators perspective, disillusioned by the deaths in 9/11 in contrast with the death of a woman (previously seen in the song) at the hospital and a lie he tells about death to his friend Garry, he decides that he can not shield his friend Gary from the nihilist perspective that it holds.

Favourite AJJ Lyrics



People II: The reckoning "So here’s to you Mrs. Robinson You live in an unforgiving place" this ode to the Simon And Garfunkel song shows how the writer believes that the world goes beyond not caring and that it has a contempt for all life and shows how humanity is uncaring and hateful.

Personal Space Invader "How can you put that straw up your nose When you know how coke is manufactured?" This is a retort to common statements used by drug abusers of how that drugs don't harm any other parties however this shows how cocaine is often made in third world countries in dire conditions. Purchasing these drugs causes the market to stay stable allowing more harm to children in third world countries.

A song dedicated to stormy the rabbit "And I'd like to be a big ball of meat, That bees can buzz around and eat when I die, So that I might be granted one sense of purpose" This shows how the narrator believes life is aimless and when he dies he wants to be able to do something of meaning. The bees that will feed on him contrast the start of the song as it is stated of flies.

Rejoice "Rejoice despite the fact this world will tear you to shreds" This shows that even though the world is unpleasant, violent, dangerous and otherwise terrible place and that it will tear you to shreds there is still reason to celebrate for simply being alive.

Brave As a Noun "In this life we lead, we could conquer everything If we could just get the braves to get out of the bed in the morning" This hows that the singer feels fear is what keeps everyone from achieving greatness even though everyone has to power to make an impact on the world however we are all just to scared of the risk involved of stepping up and making our voices heard.
