President Trump’s border wall proposal has stirred up lots of sentiment ever since he introduced it as a key presidential campaign point. After hearing the latest song from punk vets The Casualties, you should have no problem figuring out how they feel about the idea.

The band just released a high energy performance-centric video, but not only do they get their message across in the lyrics, there’s also a number of key facts thrown in to drive their statement home.

“This is a stripped down video from our hearts that cuts to the bone,” state the band. “We wanted to show the band in our most raw form and give the viewer an idea of the different face that this ‘border issue’ affects. Also, we're not holding back on how we feel about Trump. This is lyrical machine gun fire pointed right between the eyes of this asshole and anyone who follows him! The video is visually and musically a protest song of our generation and we’ve had enough! Fuck your President and fuck your wall.”

The lyrics for the song are as follows:

Smell of death is thick in the air of border towns
Children lie rotting on the apathetic ground
Wind blows hot hatred
There’s no love to be found
Laughter rings out loud
Darkness rolls in with the clouds
As another night of sorrows begins

Until death, we will fight

May the borders we burn light the way
To the revolution that starts today
May the borders we burn light the way
To the revolution that starts today

Life is meaningless when there’s profits to be made
Hell on earth is heaven
And in death you will be paid
Wind blows hot hatred
There’s no love to be found
Remember don’t forget
Empathy will have it’s own effect
As another night of sorrows begins

May the borders we burn light the way
To the revolution that starts today
May the borders we burn light the way
To the revolution that starts today

Fuck your president and fuck your wall.
Fuck your borders and fuck you all.
