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: TNT-Rex
[instrumental]
Track Name: CopyWrong
Nothing here ever grew from nothing
No one learned to speak by themselves
Yet they insist to patent progress
The future gets postponed or shelved

So much that can’t be said, just stuck inside your head
You'll just have to work around it
They've got the law in hand, business models planned
What they cannot see is that no one will make it alone

I’ll keep on moving if you’ll keep on moving
They’ll cling to the past as it falls
They’ve got the paper but we’ve got the pencils
We will carve the writing in the walls

From Disney's Classics to the Bible
All remixed the past into something new
When you can't stand on shoulders of the giants, they will forever
block your view

And they say don't re-invent the wheel, they sell it and it's a steal
They say you can't go without it
But change is coming on and soon they'll all be gone
Because they cannot see is that no one will make it alone

I’ll keep on moving if you’ll keep on moving
They’ll cling to the past as it falls
They’ve got the paper but we’ve got the pencils
We will carve the writing in the walls
Track Name: Happitalism
You've got your liberty and you've got everything we need, endless alleys of products to choose from
But is this the kind of freedom you would stand up and sing songs about passionately when you were young

Don't count the cars, don't count the cars
Count the people on the bus
Don't count the cops, don't count the cops
Count the smiles
And you'll know how rich we are

The times treated you well and your new house in the hills has the same view you once were opposing
You keep on adding up and post-purchase rationalize so you don't risk the values you've gained

And I really can't tell if you sold out
All I know is you bought in
You stay distracted by the decoys
Ready to bite the hook again

You tried to change the world but didn't make it
So you changed yourself instead
Should you ever wonder where that got us
Then count the smiles
And you'll know how rich we are
