    ... a lot of hardcore kids are PC freaks... and straight edge too... maybe you should all just die in a fire cause as taken as group, the entire "punk" scene is hypocritical as hell. sometimes the logic behind hardcore kids ideals reminds me of catholicism.

    My dog roams the streets alone. He’s got no bone to call his own. He chases trees and leaves his mark. Says he’s bite but he’s all bark. But he’s too cool to worry about about fleas ’Cause my dog is into anarchy!!
