about

The Red Pills Leeds, UK

The Red Pills took their name from the 1999 movie 'The Matrix.' In one scene, Keanu Reeves' character 'Neo' is presented with a choice of pills to ingest; a red pill or a blue pill. Each is a metaphor - taking the blue pill will allow Neo to continue to live a cosy, comfortable lie. Taking the red pill will allow him to wake up to the truth. ... more

Track Name: Christmas Spirit (reggae rock original - Christmas 2016)
Twenty-fifth of December, one hundred years ago
Even privileged dependents were thankful when they awoke
To a paltry stocking hung upon the fire (fire that thaws the cold inside)

LOOK AT WHAT WE LOST
COMMERCIALISM CALLS THE SHOTS
‘BUY ME! BUY ME!’ THE ADVERTS CLAMOUR
LOOK AT WHAT WE LOST
COMMERCIALISM CALLS THE SHOTS
‘WOW! DADDY I GOT A ROBO-OSAMA’

It’s not just nostalgia for an innocent tableau
We’ve lost sight of what matters in scattered plastic placebos
A world of style over substance leaves me cold (colder than the snow outside)

LOOK AT WHAT WE LOST
COMMERCIALISM CALLS THE SHOTS
‘BUY ME! BUY ME!’ THE ADVERTS CLAMOUR
LOOK AT WHAT WE LOST
COMMERCIALISM CALLS THE SHOTS
‘WOW! MUMMY I GOT A ROBO-OBAMA’

Things pile up and things pile up (x7)
Things pile up and what to do with all these things

We used to write out letters
Sending love to distant friends
Now we buy generic verse that
Someone else has written (so I ask myself)

Where did the Christmas Spirit go?
