Capital Lyrics

 

Lyrics “Capital” by Amyl and The Sniffers

 

Comfort to me, what does that even mean? One reason, do we persevere?
Existing for the sake of existing, meaning disappears
Meanwhile, I only just started learning basic politics
Meanwhile, they sexualise my body and get mad when I exploit it

It’s just for capital
Am I an animal?
It’s just for capital, capital, capital
But do I care at all?

Australia is burning, but, aye, I’m not learning how to be more conscious
And the farmers hope for rain while the landscape torches
Swimming in the river, I’m part of the river, not convinced how much will change
Experiencing experiences as if they’re all the same

It’s just for capital
Am I an animal?
And do I care at all? Capital, capital
I’m just an animal

Freedom don’t exist
Humans don’t exist
Existing to exist
Life is meaningless

Slapping on the porkies and buying all the backy and the Gov’ takes the big tax
First port of call should be changing the date and changing the flag
Of course I have disdain for this place, what are you thinking?
You took their kids and you locked them up, up in a prison

It’s just for capital
Am I an animal?
And do I care at all? Capital, capital
I’m just an animal

Freedom don’t exist
Humans don’t exist
Existing to exist
Life is meaningless

So ordinary and normal, don’t see the intensity that it is
And I wonder why I get dopamine released when I give
Disdain and excitement dually, the illusion can be fleeting
I love feeling drunk on the illusion of meaning
