New Year's Resolution: #GetMoneyOut of politics!! Woot woot!



I've been diggin in the dirt, something's wrong
I've been clawin in the caves all year long
I've been walkin on the sea.. the water's gone
I'm so dry that I will die

Don't ignore. Idle by...
Poison, slow.

I did not believe in evil.
I did not believe in lack.
I did not give into fear.
Oh I wish I could go back.

Drill, drill down deeper... as if there's no end...
Poison, slow.
