All songs by HIDE
Recorded and mastered by Adam Stilson at Decade Studios
in Chicago 11/2017.

Released on Joyful Noise Records White Label series. JNR's "White Label Series" has a simple purpose: to save great music from obscurity.
In our content-saturated world, it is very easy for meaningful music to be overlooked... And therefore never to be properly released, and doomed to the remote regions of the internet. To combat that trend, we have asked twelve influential artists to curate our 2017 White Label Series and help shine a spotlight on their favorite undiscovered or under-appreciated bands.

This EP is dedicated to the memory of Reyhaneh Jabbari.

PAINKILLER
Pain
Painkiller
Fuck which way the wind blows
I'm taking it back
Fuck which way the wind blows
This is pointed
An Attack
Pain
Painkiller
Repentance is futile
Repentance amounts to shit
Repentance is futile
Two throats, one slit
Pain
Painkiller

91 LASHES
H-A-P-P-Y-G-I-R-L-S
Happy girls get 91 lashes
Happiness costs 91 lashes
Hey happy girls
Can you dance in chains?
Happy girls
Can you smile through the pain?
Happy girls
You gonna do it again?
Happy girls get 91 lashes
Happiness costs 91 lashes
Hey happy girls
Why're you smiling anyways?
Aw, happy girls...
Are you hoping things'll change?
You can do that in your cage
Get the fuck back in your cage
Happy girls get 91 lashes
Happiness costs 91 lashes

BLACK FLAME
No rest for the wicked
Watch the sun go down
There's no rat for the wicked
But you're sleeping safe and sound
Violence begets violence
A lesson learned
Violence begets violence
I'm gonna take my turn
Why hang the rapist?
Watch him twist and turn
When you can torch the rapist
And watch that fucker burn
Black flame
Dance her name
I'm hungry for your dying flesh
Gonna fill my lungs
On fumes
Of your flesh
Violence begets violence
A lesson learned
Violence begets violence
I'm gonna take my turn

THE WIND
