We recorded these songs with our friend Boo Hoo, a Frankfurt-based songwriter we've toured with and loved for years. One side is "No Peace," our song about how peace is a nice idea, but in these days of creeping fascism and neo-nazis openly marching around in their polo shirts and tiki torches, we might need to take another approach. The other side is Boo Hoo's beautiful song Strangers. Both were recorded at Lolo's studio in Darmstadt in the sweaty summer of 2018.

Track Name: No Peace
The sunlight hits my face
Like a belt-strap slap from the parents in the olden days
And I wake up into the morning wishing I was an orphan
Why do I get the feeling something awful is about to happen?
Why do I get the feeling we need heroes jumping hurdles, Ninja Turtles,
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers to save the day?

No peace. No peace. No peace. No peace. No peace!

But as I rub my eyes and open up my laptop
I see "Peace in the Middle East" flash across my browser
I see America signed the treaty,
I see Mario and Luigi finally defeated Bowser
And I say "Holy shit, Ariel, wake up and check this out:
Ringo was right, it's all peace and love now, love and peace"
And she says "You're dreaming. You're just dreaming.
Go back to sleep."

No peace. No peace. No peace. No peace. No peace!

Now is neither the time nor the place for peace
So put away the puppy dogs and rainbows
You can't put a dent in the 1% with hugs,
Can't smash the fascists with sappiness, no.
Nor the nazis, whether old-school or neo
So I'll leave you with a line I stole from Leo:***
"There can be no peace for us, only misery
And the greatest happiness."

But no peace. No peace. No peace. No peace. No peace!
