Serotonin and dopamine scarce Blame imbalance of chemicals for faintheartedness The glass is half full, but half full of piss No way on earth I can settle, settle for this Small victory Big, big loss Breed apathy Harden as ballerina's toes Desensitized, unaware But kinda jealous you still care Small victory Big, big loss Hard as ballerina's toes! Hold my head down, drown me in happiness Let bubbles of bliss rise to the surface But the land is dried by the sun, the sun of emptiness That melts down rocks made of hope, dreams and provisional happiness Small victory Big, big loss Breed apathy Harden as ballerina's toes Desensitized, unaware But kinda jealous you still care Small victory Big, big loss Hard as ballerina's toes!

Nothing, nothing to brag about Weak attempt, badly planned and poorly carried out ...and I am nothing... if not a mess I am a bride in a torn-up wedding dress Razed… and built from the debris Raze the shrine to mediocracy The dust settled and the smoke cleared The air reeks of failure and cringe The congregation stands in awe of something so monumentally average ...and I am nothing if not a mess I am a bride in a torn-up wedding dress Razed… and built from the debris Raze the shrine to mediocracy I am nothing if not a mess I am a bride in a torn-up wedding dress Shrine to mediocracy!

Last thought of the day and first one when I'm awake A labor camp... with a toilet break You don't do this if you're happy You don't do this if you're scared You don't do this if you just like it You don't do it if you care... about anything else Ceiling's burning, insomnia Night shift monomania You don't do it if you're content I'm being the cricket to your ant Total effort and time spent Can pay the dues but will not pay the rent! Night shift monomania Night shift monomania Deprivation of sleep, I have standards to keep Night shift monomania

Aspiration gave to stagnant mind Expectation level declined Disappointment threshold increased But I didn't quit high school for this Sleeping, sleeping on my feet [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] Snoring, snoring down the street [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] Dreaming that I'll figure it out [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] And the focus narrowed, without the doubt… Fail to thrive, sell short All in all failing as an adult Advice ignored by default Failing as an adult Fake busy, faking interest [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] Fake nodding at its best [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] Disguised poorly into grown-up [ Don't test well, I don't test well ] Pure luck I even left the nest Fail to thrive, sell short All in all failing as an adult Advice ignored by default Failing as an adult Fail to thrive, sell short All in all failing as an adult For parenting – an insult Failing as an adult

Feral Fun 04:37
Grow a pair Let's move into the woods Maybe we'll find peace there In the stomachs of the wolves Burn the bridges Trample on the deal Flint to strike a fire, Blade to kill a meal... and kill we will! No hippie nonsense, let's move into the woods Feral fun! No hippie nonsense, just moving to the woods Swallowed by the earth, scorched by the sun Check Check and double-check Don't leave your footprints in the mud Cause they will want to take us back Maybe we'll find peace in the stomachs of the beasts Maybe we'll find peace in the stomachs of the beasts Maybe we'll find peace in the stomachs of the beasts Maybe we'll find peace in the stomachs of the beasts Feral fun! Well, it's an option...

Midlife angst didn't pay off at all This is a self-indulging sonic abuse No monetary incentive tainted the soul Just the train of beers, pizzas and precious reviews Dig for pussea Make shiny new friends Claw for peer validation Nah, strictly riffage and rants! Midlife angst didn't pay off at all This is a self-indulging sonic abuse As cruel as kids and volatile as truce Mean as a drunk, bright like the future, counter as culture and tight as a noose I'm saying I'm not losing faith! I am the son of a grinder I'm not losing faith! …and I would have done it for less I'm not losing faith! This is a friendly reminder... not a complaint It is an ode to the stubbornness

The Wailer 04:29
There's a guy with no legs selling used porn mags And there's a guy so fat he can't get out of bed There're little girls traded for cattle And 12-year-olds that are trained for battle Cancer patients bald and weak There are people losing limbs right as we speak ...and you... you... Wail like the day you were born There are women getting taped... tied getting raped There are towns blown to bits and there are people under bricks There're some fools underground, they are wasting time on this sound There are straight guys doing gay porn ...and you... Wail like the day you were born And then on the other hand For none of that, you are to blame From where you stand The main star should wear your name Just cause they have it worse doesn't mean you don't hurt Just cause they have it worse doesn't mean you don't hurt Just cause they have it worse doesn't mean you don't hurt Just because they have it worse doesn't mean you don't hurt So wail like the day you were born!

Quench 03:15
We should get out less We should get out less Let's stink up this sunless place We should get out less! How can fire and thirst be quenched with this residue?! I keep forgetting people are the worst …and I should know cause I am people too We should get out less Get out less We should get out less Let's stink up this sunless place... ...and burn through that ...and empty these They fixed the Net... Tonight the great indoors aim to please We should get out less We should get out less Let's stink up this sunless place We should get out less! Nejdem nikud! Let's burn through that and empty these They fixed the Net, tonight the great indoors aim to please

I keep forgetting people Keep forgetting events Keep forgetting conversations, alive and intense I keep forgetting the obvious, that may make one feel little better; Time will come when none of this, none of this will matter There is good news for those who like bad news A sweet win for those set to lose There is good news for those who like bad news A chant for those who sing the blues The perfect end to a perfect waste of time The perfect end to a perfect waste of time The perfect end to a perfect waste of time The perfect end to a perfect waste of time The perfect end to a perfect waste of time The perfect end to a perfect wait

about

Kevlar Bikini strikes back with their fourth album meaningfully named "OPT-OUTism". This Zagreb-based hardcore punk trio delivers another comprehensive collection of immensely powerful tunes, which have been saturated with gracious servings of magnificent elements of metal and noise rock. The band sounds vital, relevant, highly energetic throughout the entire album without any intention to decrease the intensity and slow down.

We are talking about the band who did this whole social distancing and self-isolation thing long before it was cool. As a result, they have a new album "OPT-OUTism", which provides sheer sonic aggression separated in ten high-octane compositions, loaded with threatening vocals, massive riffs, catchy basslines and a badass drumming performance that will certainly shake your entire body.
