I got handed an Ayn Rand sandwich
straight from a can it tasted so bland
I asked a lass to pass me a glass
of Engel’s Conditions of the Working Class

right away they dragged me to the committee
to explain my un-American activity
they’re gonna see they made a mistake 
if they’d only let me play my mixtape

I’m not partial to the martial
or the plutocrats in their beaver hats
and the fascists have the outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music

I hear a melody
and just as suddenly
I know who I’m
supposed to be

I don’t need a rationale
to sing the Internationale
I only need to plug in the headphone jack
so I can listen to my backing track

I’m not jealous of the zealous
or anarchics with guitar picks
and the fascists have their outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music
yes the communists have the music
oh the communists have the music

I hear a melody
and just as suddenly
I know who I’m
supposed to be

I’m not partial to the martial
or the plutocrats in their beaver hats
and the fascists have the outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music

                           whAT!? 

Lincoln, our second album, is once again going to be available on vinyl. RED VINYL. It is now available for pre-order and it is an exceptional piece. This audiophile effort with the album remastered by UE Nastasi from Sterling Sound and pressed on 180-gram vinyl in TRANSPARENT RED. (For the Snopes readers out there, we can assure you that, unlike the children’s records on colored vinyl of the 1960s, these discs are full fidelity and will hold up to repeated listening long into the next century, GUARANTEED.) Brian Dewan’s legendary album cover artwork is glorious in the vinyl format and the LP packages includes a printed sleeve with all the album lyrics. Each disc also arrives with a download card with a code to the remastered audio. 

This has been a labor of love and it is very exciting to have the opportunity to get this piece of TMBG history back on wax in a package worthy of its legacy. We know you will enjoy it. Our best estimate is arrival in October. If you care to order in advance here is the link:
