"Society Is A Hole" as written by Robert Bert, Kim A. Godron, Thurston J. Moore and Lee M. Ranaldo....
Society is a hole
It makes me lie to my friends
It's running down my street
With white powers sneakers
On the beautiful beat of black feet
Society is a hole
It beats my friends big heads
My friends have big heads,
I can understand it
But I don't recommend it
You got big big hair
And everybody is scared
Society is a hole
It makes me lie to my friends
The assault of holy music
There's a slap in my face
My friends are girls wrapped in boys
We're living in pieces
I want to live in peace
Society is a hole

    General Commentthurston is expressing his distaste for the modern world most obviously. surrounded by insignificance and the hell of capitalistic society (my friends are girls wrapped in boys/it's running down my street with white power sneakers) my fave line:
    "we are living in pieces i wanna live in peace" couldn't have said it better myself. many people live their lives dislocated from what makes them happy or could potentially make them happy and (i'm thinking of New York) are harsh to strangers b/c they are just another person walking down the block
