I tend to prescribe to the idea that best intentions more often than not create bad outcomes.

A good example of this is the attempt to arrange social events with different groups of friends.

Be that a dinner with old school friends and university friends, or work col...

They said that we were trash

Well the name is Crass, not Clash

They can stuff their punk credentials

Cause it's them that take the cash

They won't change nothing with their fashionable talk

Of old age too, and in his bed!
And could that mighty warrior fall,
And so inglorious, after all?

And, trust me, as the noise grows stronger,
He'd wish to sl...
