No, to me you are the Great Wall of China,
yeah, to me you are the golden gates of Hell.
Yeah, to me you are college camping trips and hockey,
yeah, to me you are the lies that you tell.
Well it’s true, that I still love you,
for how long I never could tell.
But our lives are the same, both in shape and in length,
for when you die, I will die as well.

You are the leaves at my feet,
you are the hum of electric heat.
I keep myself away,
but I’m starting to like the pain.
“Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist.”
