Antibrand

FAKE NIKE

or the birth of the antibrand

fake nike antibrand

everywhere you look/ everywhere you shop/ BUY SHIT
there’s a brand with your name on it/ someone else’s name on it
and the birth of cool died years ago
the long drawn out deathwail rattling through subway tunnels
and through coffeeshop doors halfway around the world
carried high above skyscrapers and shifted around
by FAKE airbus and FAKE boeing
wearing FAKE gucci and FAKE armani 
FAKE tans and FAKE fucking handshakes in the boredrooms
you and I will never similarly witness
Protection Programs
for your and my protection apparently
this is where FAKE microsoft buys all its FAKE software
and FAKE apple and FAKE dell and FAKE nokia 
and FAKE blackberry and somewhere in a FAKE factory
the birth of cool died years ago, slipping quietly away
from the teat of globalization, a FAKE mother with her
FAKE child carelessly and casually castaway
somebody bring her another one
scout the countryside promising higher wages
and christmas fucking bonuses and christmas

everywhere you lock your doors/ book your holidays/ plan your escape
from the system/ within the system/ locked booked and planned
Systematic Overhaul of your FAKE dreams FAKE desires 
FAKE life insurance policies and FAKEDeath, EVERYWHERE 
you think you can go FAKE macdonalds and FAKE starbucks 
got there first, before you,
to build your image in their name/ to mould your name in their IMAGE
to classify your earning potential/ quantify your personal self WORTH 
to manage your mortgage repayments through FAKE banks 
{insert bank brand here} = {one brand name} = LOSS OF TRUST 
/in the global fistfuck tryst that is your FAKE life
Savings and Retirement annuity bullshit skingraft analprobe 
Godshucked whipping boys in FAKE mustangs and 4X4s 
gather on the corporate cliffs like FAKE lemmings testing the water
always testing the water for someone else/ someone like yourself
to come along and TAKE the FALL for

                        FAKE nike ANTI nike 
                             FAKE christ ANTI 
                                              christi 

For all the things you think you want/ think you need/ for all the hours
filled with DIRT by FAKE television high definition pedigrees
of human mastication, chewed through by the machinery of FAKE 
progress/ everywhere you tread in FAKE nike carbon footprints 
follow you in the life you lead nobody nowhere toward nothing
in your FAKE brands with your FAKE trends and your FAKE friends
serving your TIME on server farms LIKE 
FAKE sheep in FAKE sleep 
with FAKE cash in FAKE flesh 
living LIFE as you would live DEATH 
in the never ending birth of cool
along beautiful production lines
where both clones and snakes
are MADE in FAKE
