Track Name: Burn Rave Culture
i don't want to be that kind of guy who pushes play and dances for a while. i just want to make the children think about more than getting their next drink. burn rave culture, mary ann. i put a dollar in her hand. a song so sour that they all call sweet is talked about by everyone i meet. it's so happy, but somehow so sad. irony, but it's driving me so mad.
Track Name: Awake
mother, i tell you, it's the TV keeping me awake now, and somehow it's all i know. i can't let it go to waste.
