Contents: An air of impoverishment and depleted humanity --
That's mine now, I got that before you could get it --
An obnoxious, bitter, hateful old creep --
This is one of the things I would say is inexplicable --
A form of protection against the loss of self --
Suck all the blossoms and he leave you an empty square --
We are not drowning --
I like to get into the field and hunt them down in the wild, so to speak --
All I'm saying is there's no way you can game this kind of system --
Now there's a man on his way down --
i saw America changed through music --
There will be no service --
But there's another part of me that finds it kind of disgusting --
Luring me out here for nothing but a damn bunch of LP records! --
An obsessive need for tings to stay the same and an immersion in arcane knowledge --
Who wants to hear a story about a boy learning guitar from a book.
Responsibility: Amanda Petrusich.
