"America Won" as written by and Andrew/wolf Broder....
why?:
america's a blinding place for nightlife.
the highlights: america's a binding place
and i might tangle you in your own fists
like two hundred feet of blank tape in a tree.
and i might pound you,
put it on you like a sweater
with the sleeve holes sewed shut
when you're trying to swim.
and i might treat you like a wall i walk by
with my headphones on and my eyes all gone.
or polish you, shine your ego
like windexing a mirror.

    My OpinionThis song is an inner battle for Yoni. His small voice (the "background" vocals/loops [with my headphones on and my eyes all gone, etc]) represents the Angel-Yoni on one of his shoulders. The darker (more prominent "front runner" lines) represents the Devil-Yoni on the other.

    Like his conscious, both voices are fighting for representation in the song, each stating their case in your ear, piping in both in simultaneous fashion and one-after-the-other, and bickering with each other. The song is a battle between the two dominant forces within us.

    This song absolutely kills me. It is hands-down my favorite song. The imagery is amazing, and the first time you hear the two-voices going at one another is a moment you will never forget. Do yourself a favor, and listen to this song with headphones on.
