about

Stöj Snak Aalborg, Denmark

Stöj Snak is a SCREAMER-SONGWRITER project from Aalborg, DENMARK.

Musically and creatively Stöj Snak is shaped by the punk scene. And though Stöj Snak is a step away from punk and the limitations of a traditional band, the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic DIY approach is still very visible in the songwriting. ... more

Track Name: Drink from the Well
We’re building walls on a shaking foundation but we’re too busy to notice
And when we’re done here we will leave pretty houses for a world where no one can live
With happiness always just out of reach, we follow the trails that run into the ground
To become kings of ashes we will burn the whole world down

But once we could drink from the well

We’ve sprayed our fields till the weeds grew resistant, pulled dragnets through every oceans
Replaced our forests with deserts and landfills to ensure a steady growth
We've poisoned the waters and ruined the crops so what do we say our kids turn to us
And ask us to justify all this mess - they will reap what we sow

Once we could drink from the well

The sky will open up and flush out all the filth
To settle the score
Soon our bloated remains, stuffed with plastic bits
will wash upon the shore

And form a new foundation in all colors and shapes
For future generations
To build their shaking lives and be reminded of us

Once we could drink from the well
Track Name: Fracking
Hydrochloric acid, ethylene glycol, formic acid, benzene,
polyacrylamide, magnesium peroxide, tetramethyl ammonium chloride

Down goes the drill bit into the ground, cutting out the shaft kilometres down
A sideways turn, kilometres on, fractures the rocks with a ‘perforation gun’

The high-pressure mix is pumped down the hole, pushed between the rocks is a gel-like ooze
Up comes the methane off to be burned - 25 times more climate changing than C02
(It’s the most potent, climate changing gas there is)

Down goes the pipe, better get it right, cos if it goes wrong it could spill out of sight
Into the aquifer, which won’t be very nice, and your tap water could set on fire
Could set on fire

8 million litres of water, 200,000 litres of chemicals,
some are toxic, poisonous, carcinogenic, corrosive and highly flammable

Up from the earth comes half of the mixture but now it’s radioactive with arsenic and lead
millions of years of geological processes - produced something so toxic it could kill you dead

Half of the fluid stays in the ground, at least we presume, there’s no long-term research
the high-energy consumption of the process will be over before the environment is left in the lurch

Half of the fluid is taken to be ‘treated’ but they can’t remove the toxic chemical risk
It’s taken to be dumped into the river with the otters, voles, the birds and the fish

Hydrochloric acid, ethylene glycol, formic acid, benzene,
lauryl sulphate, sodium erythorbate - we’ve got to stop fracking before it’s too late

Cos there is no safe protection from the frac-fluid, only for the corporate investor
Are the unforeseen environmental consequences worth brutality towards the protester?

Contaminated drinking water, limited knowledge of seismology
This short-term, poisonous, toxic, corrosive, carcinogenic, radioactive process is pure folly!

So put the pressure on, the government are wrong,
they have lackeys, but we have right on our side
Do what you can to cause a fracking ban -
create a future from which you don’t wanna hide

Stand side by side.
