“The title is the opening line of the final communique released by the Kronstadt rebellion in Russia in 1921, which was an anarchist uprising," explains singer/violinist Simon Barr. "The lyrics are about the tragedy of those who uphold and support capitalism, despite the misery, drudgery, depression that comes with living under the system. There’s something terrible about being bludgeoned by something whilst still believing it’s there to benefit you.”
