"Wish I knew everyone's nickname, all their slang and all their sayings. Every way to show affection, how to dress to fit the occasion... Wish we all waved... All waved... All waved..."
Janes Addiction, from "No One's Leaving"

Wish I could wear something that said "I'm not an asshole. I'm not a bigot. I'm not part of the problem and I try to be part of the solution." Preconceived notions, stereotypes, generalizations are all necessary for humans to function, but they seem dangerous. I try to avoid them whenever possible and I hate it when I get the "look" from white conservative suit-wearing corporate snots that says "Oh, another student. Maybe even a ARTIST!" "Fuck you, I make more than you per hour even dressed like this!", I want to say. On the other hand, I have a lot of "artsy" type people come up and start complaining about "the establishment" and I can't keep my mouth shut, "Working for a living is not such a bad idea. Try it - you'll be able to buy more materials for your creative efforts. And how else is the 'establishment' ever going to change if you don't get involved?"

"Hey, you don't know me! You don't know me but you just keep looking at me down low."
Jane's Addiction, from "Obvious"

I despise being instantly labeled on sight. Wish there were something I could wear that said "I have something in common with you despite what you think."
Wish I didn't have to wear it but that it was just accepted.
