The lyrics on the Werke Horse album may be controversial. But they’re not obscene, explicit, radical, or destructive. Still, Youtube has frozen the number of views on our video channel.

I comfort myself knowing that the lyrics have been recognized and published by the “YGDRASIL Journal of Poetic Arts.” The journal has 40,000 followers and is preserved by the Library and Archives Canada. This institution is the Canadian equivalent of the US Library of Congress.
