Sorry for not including every thing I'm replying to but what the hell..
First off I'd watch my mouth when I spoke about Elvis if I was you Bro.
theres people out there that will kill you rather then hear you speek like
that... Thats not the kind of hopelessness(humm) I ment. Your hopeless
world seems like you beat it with a very, VERY big gun, and what every PC
needs a hell of a lot of luck... I ment a world where to get out of the pit
you gotta claw till your nails bleed, where theres allways that Joe doing
better... In a world where every where you turn you get screwed PC get a
bit pissed off, does any one else find that??? And where you get metals
better than meat, metal don't make c-punk, it the world that does that..
Once again I ask... Why Magik???
