Het thema van het formidabele album Traitorland van Nathan Bell is het leven in Amerika sinds 11 september 2001. When the dust had settled and the building were gone / There were prayers, there were poems and people wrote songs / And we swore to remember what we'd seen and we'd heard / It took us six long years to forget those words. Het openingsnummer Six Long Years hakt er direct goed in. They call dead men heroes and live men traitors / Feed the money to the machine and the people to the gators / Ask anybody out there, it's easy to tell / For six long years, we've been mad as hell. En in titelnummer (Rules For Living In) Traitorland: Don't let them tell you what to read / Don't let them tell you who to fear / Don't let them tell you anything at all / don't believe a single thing you hear / In Traitorland.
