Let It All Burn

by Love Ghost

'Let It All Burn' is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined - "fuck what they say, I make my own way."

For fans of

Five AM

by Fights

"Five AM" is a message to all of those caring so much about everything to relax a bit. This is about the fact that few good things happens after midnight, but it can be healthy and good for you to get away sometimes and care less.
