Music: the Ornate Mask of Silence

Who needs a Cartel when
plugging in is The Cure?
If The Vaccines can put me
into a Swell Daze, why
Poison The Young Veins?

I can Walk The Moon or
take The Velvet Underground
to escape the fact that
The Strokes of luck we’ve had
are based on Milky Chance.

We hit an All Time Low when
we care more about The Blow
we left in our parents’ Beach House
than the lives of Black Kids or
the homes of Local Natives.

But why Ra Ra Riot when
Passion Pits you against
The National mindset?
Say Anything, but
don’t say it too loud.
