you ever think about the other sperm you beat out to exist?
the concert pianists?
but you, the tumblr blogger
"3000 Miles Away" by Star Fucking Hipsters. I think I posted a live version of this song before, but fuck it, I dig this video. It’s a great anthem, of course, and I hope the message isn’t lost on you. I don’t consider myself an anarchist, but I think we’ve got to start asking some hard questions when governments kill more people than any plague or terrorist organization or natural disaster.
I spied the government today
they seemed inclined to make us pay
after one hundred broken treaties and accords
they could not blame us for our pain
And if 1000 die tonight
no one could say just who was right
statistics tend to lie, but they don’t mean too much
And I wouldn’t trust those that use ‘em as a crutch
for all the innocents that get murdered in the fray
we cried 3000 miles away
We found the remains of a corpse
investigate to seek the source
and in old pictures you seem happier at least
and your last witness saw you go with some police
I wish you here again to hold our nervous hearts
but that just wasn’t in the cards
And if 10,000 die tonight
I hope that they put up a decent fight
for every innocent that gets murdered in the fray
we’ll fight 3000 miles away
when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
When it occured to us that “said” implies a direct quote, while “was like” clarifies that you mean to communicate the person’s tone and general point without quoting them word for word.
