The king is dead
So I don't care if you dance well
'Cause fashion can't replace content
And passion is lost between scene points and greasy hair
The king is dead and you're next

    General CommentIt sounds to me like this song is about the grunge scene. Kurt Cobain was pretty much the king of grunge, so when he died the whole grunge scene just kind of collapsed.

    General CommentAsk yourself, What is Raein doing writing a song about Kurt Cobain and grunge? If that doesn't seem ridiculous to you, then what are you doing listening to Raein?
