Lyrics. Now these labels have raped the lyrical content to leave nothing to the imagination. 80 percent of what is being played is predictable regarding lyrical flow and content.

Don't read this because it actually works.you will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this u will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. Put this in at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes.when done press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screan in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
