23 beats off lyrics – fugazi

a name
i recognise that name
it was at the center of some
ticker tape parade
the lead story,
a fine example
a name, a name
a name i recognise that name
it was at the center of
some magnifying gl*ss
the lead story, a fine example
a name, a name
he used to pretend he was
fighting some war somewhere
now everything depends on
fighting some war
he never thought he’d be an
exclamation point
a demonstration of his disease
a punctuation mark
a household name with hiv
still, it’s just still sound

/ fugazi lyrics
