"American Society" as written by and Rhea/shea Miller....
Don't want to drown
Don't want to be found
This is not my destiny
Oh yeah
No twentieth century casualty
Oh yeah

I don't want to watch television
I don't want to listen to the radio
I don't want to drown in American society

Don't want to be rich
Now can't you see the way they dress
They dress
Well they're a bloody tax mess
I don't want to go to the movies
I don't want to listen to the company
Don't want to drown in American society

    General CommentFucking epic. L7 is timeless. I wish I could go back in time and see them live. These lyrics are still vital and applicable, even after all this time.

    General CommentWell, it's pretty obvious what this song is about. (And in case you're too stupid to figure that out, it's about someone not wanting to be like everyone else.)

    I, too, wish I could go back in time and see L7 live. That would be epic.
