one of the cut songs from Next to Normal that I wished they didn’t cut
His body isn’t even cold yet and the New York times has already put out a shameful article declaring Nelson Mandela to be an “icon of peaceful resistance”. News outlets around the Western world are hurrying to publish obituaries that celebrate his electoral victory while erasing the protracted and fierce guerrilla struggle that he and his party were forced to fight in order to make that victory possible. Don’t let racist, imperialist liberalism co-opt the legacy of another radical. Nelson Mandela used peaceful means when he could, and violent means when he couldn’t. For this, during his life they called him a terrorist, and after his death they’ll call him a pacifist — all to neutralize the revolutionary potential of his legacy, and the lessons to be drawn from it.
Don’t fucking let them.
"Tell me this isn’t about me getting into the Phoenix. You, you did it, I knew you did it! You planted that story about the chicken! You had me accused of animal cruelty. And I’ll bet what you hated the most was that they identified me as a cofounder of Facebook, which I am. You better lawyer up asshole, cause I’m not coming back for 30%, I’m coming back for everything.”
so if I’m a liar and you’re a thief,
at least we both know where the other one sleeps
