"R.I.P. Alan Vega 

Suicide has been very inspiring and influential to me ever since I first heard their music. 
I made this song in 2011 but never released it, I feel like posting it as a small tribute!

Lyrics:

Me and Alan Vega were moving through your mind 
I was born in 1988 those days were fine 
Now the year is 2011 boy we're having a time 
Fill your cup with diet soda think of Suicide 

Here we are young and undressed 
Water-filled eyes are unwept 
Take a small sip of my breath, younger, sober 
Count how many times I've touched you 
Does it really even help us? 
Do I even make you feel less empty, hungry? 

If I died and was born again would you be my bride? 
Would we meet as total strangers locked in hopeless lives? 
Now the year is 2011 boy we're having a time 
Feast your eyes on devastation 
Think of victimless crime 

Here we are young and sun-tanned 
Paranoid eyes, unknown lands 
Take a small sip of what they offer to you 
Count how many times you've loved one 
Was it real or was it just fun? 
Are these really faces you love, empty, hollow? 

Me and Alan Vega were moving through your mind 
I was born in 1988 those days were fine 
Now the year is 2011 boy we're having a time 
Fill your cup with diet soda think of Suicide"
