    The most interesting is how you can definitely see how emo denigrated from this very song into something like SDRE and then from what purists would eventually frown at.

    I think I just discovered why original emo kids are hardcore purists.

    I woke up this morning with the present in splinters on the ground. And then I drowned! Best song of the 80's. Period. Pure, Raw, In Your Face Honest. The confidence of ignorance right here. Art.

    I woke up this morning, with a piece of past caught in my throat. And then I choked!

    I believed, memory might mirror no reflections on me. I believed, that in forgetting I might set myself free. But I woke up this morning with a piece of past caught in my throat, and then I choked. I bled, I tried to hide the heart from the head. I bled, I said I bled, in the arms of the girl I barely met.
