"Modern Day Emma Goldman" as written by Derek James Fudesco, Andrea Nicole Zollo, Nicholas Aaron Dewitt, Jason Crowe Clark and Nathan Patrick Johnson....
we were two girls who had it all
made a team together
left a trail of heartbreak in every town

we had it all planned out
every face another name on the list
they'd know about us from miles around

1,2,3,4...
watch your back now!
there's a larger threat than what's implied
our time is now!
and i gotta have faith to win the fight

be my strength, i'll be your backbone
always danger of the unknown
our battle has no end
we keep on going, keep on going now

back pocket filled with matches baby
we're ready to set the fire
like the burning, burning in our hearts
of revolution plus desire

go!
watch your back now!
yeah the old rules no longer apply
gave us the roles to fit in
we told you where to stick them
and i gotta have faith to win the fight

    General Commentyou see, i'm obsessed with emma goldman.
    she was way ahead of her time and everything she wrote 100 years ago about how fucked society is is still true today. which is really pathetic. i suggest you all read up on her.


    go pretty girls make graves for acknowledging this awesome woman of the past
