The Self-Mutilating Circus We Have Painted Ourselves Clowns In

The word PRETTY is unworthy of everything you will be and no child of mine will be contained in 5 letters

It's no secret that society shapes today's youth in a number of twisted ways. Violence. Low self-esteem. The need to be glamorous and perfect. Now I'm starting to wonder about all the songs that have lyrics about money makers, throwin money up in the air, and "making it rain". Is pop culture teaching youth to care about wealth more than love? Just as the magazines teach us that we need to be pretty?

Here's what you do:
take a look around and pick out what reminds you of places you wanted to be but gave up on going, and jam it all into this big box called NOW. Then go across the street to Mama Genuines-- ask her how shes's been-- show her what I gave ya, she'll know exactly what you need. Then go back in to the center of that freeway and get to work, making it all fit. You wont have any directions or factory number tabs, but dont panic. There's a hundred ways to do it right and none to do it wrong cause you're startin out on whats already been given up upon. You can't do any worse!
