Once Upon A Time - SOAD

The toxicity of a city...of a city......

Psycho groupie, cocaine crazy makes you high makes you high.....

Pull the tapeworm out of your ass........

***********

Somewhere in the rural side of Malaysia...a group of kids were yelling and screaming to the rhytm of the Armenian American Band, SOAD.

It was during prep class where everybody were supposed to study for their exams.

With walkmans, earphones, hairstyles and 'selipar jepun', they gather around a table and became an eyesore to those who wanted to study.

One kid was pretending to hold a drum stick and smack the drum set, while the other two had their hand in the position of holding and playing the guitar. Serj Tankian and Darron Malakian wannabe. The others, they watched and sing along.

Those were the days they rebel and care less about the rules and regulations.

Rules are meant to be broken.

"We are chanting and singing for world peace" argued one of those kids when people started to terrorized the group with words that clearly begging them to shut the hell up.

9 years later

The toxicity of a city...of a city......

Psycho groupie, cocaine crazy makes you high makes you high.....

Pull the tapeworm out of your ass........


****************

In a quiet office department where everybody seems to be working under pressure, one of the kids, now an adult is whispering the verses from toxicity in front of his laptop with his work, piling.

Properly dressed, neat hair with black shoes, how he wish he could stand up, sing and scream to the sound of toxicity.

Try do it now, he'll end up in an asylum.

Try do it now, he'll end up losing everything........ despite having nothing.

Those were yesterdays, those were the days.


Peaceful loving youth against the brutality, of plastic existence - Deer Dance, System Of A Down, Toxicity.
