fave tracks: silently leaving the room; so you wanna be a superhero; september come take this heart away; ignorant piece of shit; they'll only miss you when you leave; a new holiday (november 16th); farewell to all these rotten teeth; sofisticated fuck princess please leave me alone; low budget slow motion soundtrack song for the leaving scene; (march 19th 1983) it was probably green
cant write a review through the tears. This is good, its really good.
