about

Lái play Swedish influenced fast paced raging d-beat punk that propels the ferocious vocals right into the face of the listener. Vocalist Alda's lyrics engage with voices that explore politics, religion, feminism and queer rights in South East Asia and the diaspora. Vocals are deliveried in both Bahasa Indonesian and English and the band name is taken from the Chinese Mandarin phrase meaning 'to come/next.' Lái invoke these diasporic identities and themes through punk, mixing ideas and personal experiences that often inter-connect but also continue to conflict in the world around us.

For fans of Totalitar & G.L.O.S.S., featuring members of Pisschrist, Extinct Exist, Masses, Ubik & Occult Blood this demo is limited to a run of 100 cassettes out August 17th 2018 on Lost in Fog Records.

Track Name: Nerakamu Surgaku
Berlimpah makanan, berlapis sutra
perhiasan dan barisan perawan
tuk inikah kamu menyebalkan
mengatur, merusak hidup orang

Sambutlah, setanmu yang terkutuk
Syaiton Nirodjim, api pembebasan
Sambutlah, setanmu yang terkutuk
Syaiton Nirodjim, saling membebaskan

Nerakamu Surgaku
Nerakamu Surgaku

Sambutlah, setanmu yang terkutuk
Syaiton Nirodjim, saling membebaskan

Nerakamu Surgaku
Nerakamu Surgaku

Menolak berpikir ulang, takut berpikir kritis
terserah kalo kamu ingin hidup dalam kawanan yang takut pada tubuh sendiri
Karepmu, tapi gausah bawa2 kita juga anjing

Sambutlah, setanmu yang terkutuk
Syaiton Nirodjim, api pembebasan
Sambutlah, setanmu yang terkutuk
Syaiton Nirodjim, saling membebaskan

Nerakamu Surgaku
Track Name: Prophets of Lies
death to the trans and the queers, they said
prison for promiscuity, they said
rape all the whores till the streets are red
i’m sick of religious disease they spread

your heaven does not await
your spirits linger in regret
your prophets of lies is piece of shit
your heaven does not await
your hollow souls will never rest
the daemons of Abraham will find you

(chorus)
mouthful of war, doctrines of lies
we’ll cleave off your tongue
with our hands full of knives
we’re coming for you, prophets of lies
an army of queers
we’ll bring your demise

You’ll choke on your words
As your mouths filled with blood
We’re coming for you
We’re coming for you
Track Name: Red Umbrella
Hear the rage chimes in
of the red umbrella in the dark
colored by blood of sacred prostitutes
killed and forgotten on the streets

of the passion of the sacred whores
of the temple of Harlots
of the hearth-fire altar, realm of desire
of the dance of the healer hussies

ruled by gangs, raped by cops and mobs
for the sake of the ignorant & sanctimonious snobs
who criminalized & stigmatized them

Red of the passion of the sacred whores
Red of their dried blood in the gutter
Red of their bruises, of their wounds
while they’re shamed on, spat on

Red of their fire, Red of their rage
Red of their fire, Red of their rage
Red of their fire, Red of their rage
Red of their fire, Red of their rage

Red of their rage!
Track Name: Kamu Haram
Jangan Ketawa2 itu Haram
Jangan Ngewe2 itu Haram
Jangan Nari2, itu Haram
Jangan Bersuara, Dilarang

Badanmu bukan Badanmu
Badanku bukan Badanku
Badanmu Haram, Jiwamu Haram

Jangan Ketawa2 itu Haram
Jangan Ngewe2 itu Haram
Jangan Minum2 itu Haram
Jangan Berpikir, Dilarang

Badanmu Haram
Suaramu Haram
Tarianmu Haram
Tubuhmu Haram
Pemikiranmu Haram
Dirimu Haram
Jiwamu Haram
Kamu Haram, Kamu Haram
Kamu Haram!

Hidupmu bukan untuk pilihanmu
Kalo ga setuju nanti kubawa2 Parang
Track Name: Akumulasi Amarah
Akumulasi amarah
Benci ini mewabah
Membuncah jengah
Berpeluh tulah
Merintis arah
Merasuki celah
Meruap darah
garam dan serapah
Meniup karma arwah
Akumulasi amarah

Jengah dengan kebusukanmu
dan ilusi kesucian palsumu
yang mengayun penghakiman
pembakaran pembantaian
atas nama moral sampahmu

Meruap darah
garam dan serapah
Meniup karma arwah
Akumulasi amarah

Cukup sudah, cukup sudah
Kebisuanmu yang memberi jalan
Kepada kawananmu yang palsu dan berotak Udang
Tak bisakah kamu membaca sejarah
Di sisi manakah kamu kan berpijak

Akumulasi amarah

Akumulasi amarah
Kebencian ini mewabah
Membuncah jengah
Berpeluh tulah
Melintas arah
Merasuki celah
Meruap darah
garam dan serapah
Meniupkan karma arwah
Mengakumulasikan amarah
Akumulasi amarah, amarah, amarah
akumulasi amarah membuncah merebak jengah
