The road to hell is paved with chocolate treats,
and candy corn is sown at the side of the streets.
Every morsel promises to make you satisfied,
but every wrapper carries another lie.
The road to hell winds through a gingerbread town.
It looks real good, tastes real good,
but truth be told, it leads straight down.

And every ounce tells, when every pound kills,
and every loose tooth betrays another wrong move,
in the diet of denial.

    General CommentDischord bands have a history of being anti-obsession. This is just another expression of the ideals expressed by bands like Minor Threat earlier - that reliance on something that feels and tastes good but which kills slowly is not necessary.
