Lyric Slide: Racing the Rats, Inheriting Lies

As we work to bring this project to life, we’re sharing what we can for now. Though they’ve not yet been properly recorded, the Mutineer songs have long since been written. And in fact, the lyrical theme and tone of the songs pretty much set the way for what the band name and project would become.

In these early days, we’ve been sharing these images with individual lyric lines from some of the songs, mostly on our Twitter and Facebook. We thought we’d begin posting some here, too.

This lyric is from a song called “Redundancy.” It’s one of the key pieces, thematically, of the whole project. The song is an observation of how our generation (I’m 41) and those coming up behind us are now actively questioning what we’ve just taken on faith to equal the “American (or in our case, Canadian) Dream.” Interpret it as you like.

Please feel welcome to copy, paste, send or share these slides, and your comments and feedback are always welcome.

About Mutineer

Mutineer is a rock 'n roll bucket list project. I'm working on it because I want it to exist. Rather than a call to confrontation, Mutineer is a removal of resistance and rally for accountability and self acceptance. Though the songs are long-since written, I have little idea how I'll actually get a group of musicians together and get it recorded and released properly. This site is here to document the process. If you've ever wondered about testing the laws of attraction and intention, follow along.
