Love Drugs Sex Pain Those are just grade school games, nothing major nothing ages nothing changes but the names and dates. Fear Pride Faith Shame Those are just grade school games, nothing major nothing ages nothing stranger than the neighbor’s place. You can’t make me play by all new rules Some kids barely practice but I do Love Drugs Sex Pain Those are just grade school games, nothing major no new dangers the operations of arcades don’t change. Blush Pull Push Blame Those are just grade school games, nothing major old behaviors trade some favors then give chase, take aim. You can’t make me play by all new rules Some kids barely practice but I do I’m old enough to know how this goes and how it all plays out The end is always when the ring is empty and we all fall down. Love Drugs Sex Pain Those are just grade school games, nothing major nothing ages nothing changes but the names and dates.
