DIY Together / Dee Aye Why? (Lyrics)

Words by Dougle McMysteron
From the release DIY Together

Who are we anyway?
Sold out or buying in?
Create it or consume
We owe ‘them’ nothing
Commodified and controlled
Make something new

There are those who identify
By what they buy
Don’t be that guy

Subvert and reassign
From something old make something new
Make meaning of your own
Life’s not a purchase
Commodified and controlled
Life’s what you do

There are those who identify
By what they buy
Don’t be that guy
It’s pie in the sky
Don’t fall for that lie
Just DIY

“So Audre Lorde said ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House’, eh. So the house always wins as long as you play by their rules. Remember: you can’t enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. So what are we doing? Why are we trying to play their game according to their rules? Why let them even set the rules for a game that used to be ours in the first place?”

Who are we anyway?
Sold out or buying in?
Create it or consume
We owe ‘them’ nothing

Commodified and controlled
